We came to know of this homestay paradise through our friends. We were looking for a decent property where pets would be allowed too. Since this is owned by a Parsi couple, Ayesha and Jamshed, we were hopeful of dogs being allowed. We were pleasantly surprised that not only us but our dog too was welcomed, and we had one... More

I stayed at Capella for three nights while touring India on a motorcycle. The first thing to say is that Jamshed and Ayesha are very welcoming to bikers, as Jamshed is a biker himself. More generally, I echo the other 5-star reviews here. A warm and friendly family home, very good food, and attentive staff always on hand with real... More

Cosy, comfortable private and secluded getaway from the madness yet accessible. Like a second home making you feel like it's yours. Thank you Ayesha and Jamshed for a memorable one. Yes, the room on top with the view overlooking the pool! Love and luck Smita

Dear Smita, I admit I was puzzled by the ranking you gave Capella (our very first 2 star) because your review is generally complimentary and so is the comment you left in our guest book. Thank you so much for calling me later to explain you had confused the rankings and given us a 2 (poor) instead of a 4... More

An exquisite Homestay in Goa! Capella, spoils you for other properties and once you have tasted its hospitality , you don't ever want to go anywhere else! Be it the stunning architecture, the sweeping verandas, the outside-inside living, the wafting music that echoes through the house, the forest that cocoons the house, the warm waters of the infinity pool that...

Is it the charm of Portuguese architecture? is it the hospitality of Ayesha? is it the spacious bedrooms? quiet location? pool? books? hot yummy breakfast?.......the list goes on.... no wonder Capella has a 5* rating after 100+ reviews.... One needs to experience it to understand what all these reviews mean... We had a car and was easy to go around.... More

A home whose doors are never locked, infinity pool with jazz playing on the bose docker, vintage Parsi/Irani furniture and yummy Goan fish curry rice to savour. Tons of books to read or gaze at the stars by the poolside. Endless chirping of birds instead of vehicle horns to wake you up......Wow !!! A better home away from home....

I think this is a very under marketed property. Jammy & Ayesha have really created a wonderful oasis away from the hustle bustle of Goa. Beautiful views from the both the room and pool area. A very green, foresty and tranquil place. We had a great time relaxing by the pool and the open areas. Great breakfast but dinner was... More

Capella ranks high on all travel forums and is well recommended by all who look for exclusive getaways in Goa. It truly deserves every appreciation and more. In the midst of everything Goa has to offer (famous beaches,restaurants,markets,etc) but still secluded, Capella has the warmth of a welcoming home. Everything is so thought through, it leaves you wondering if your... More

This is our second trip to CAPELLA. As an Architect I highly recommend this place for the Portugese sense, the painstaking floor finishes, the dramatic planning, the micro detailing and for the hosts. This place will stun you with its openness. And its literally open to dogs,cats, birds, frogs, occasional langurs, snakes, bumble bees and many more nature's beings. You... More
