Savio and Audrey are now like family and Quinta Da Graca is home! Set in my most fav village, this homestay is ideal for a solo traveler looking to explore culture, talk at length, bask in the sun and discover. Lost count of the times I have stayed here, cannot wait to get back :)

I wanted to give this a 2.5 but TripAdvisor doesn't give me that option. Stayed during the peak season. Could find availability here at the last minute. The home is typically Goan style. The property is beautiful and located in a quiet place. Accessibility on day 1 was an issue because we didn't have our own vehicle. Breakfast was sub-standard... More

This review appears to be a fabrication with an intent to malign us.It does not look like any Dec 2015 guest has written this,because the review does not match with reality. Let me get to the the facts , 1 There were no last minute bookings in Dec 2015 and specially during the peak season. Our records show that the... More

The property is beautiful with a lot of greenery. The rooms are spacious with clean bathrooms. Beyond this I really can't recollect any niceties. Service is passe. We were actually surprised by the other reviews mentioning great breakfast and service. The breakfast was just a collection of some odd tasting/looking bread, eggs and some fruits, nothing really fancy. I do... More

Firstly, this is not a hotel or a B&B. It is a homestay. This categorization (on all websites) might have helped in setting the expectations right. To start with positives 1. Location: Tagged on Google maps, Easy to find. Good place to stay if you have your own commute. 2. Parking: Though there was no closed parking, two cars can... More

They say old is gold. The common proverb perhaps can get a new meaning if anyone visits this place. Run by a Goan couple, the sprawling bungalow has a number of rooms and an independent cottage at a revamped Portuguese property which is more than a hundred years old. We spent three days at the cottage-- the latest addition to... More

I had such a lovely relaxing stay in this beautiful guest house. The hosts Audrey and Savvio are very thoughtful and caring and offered to arrange taxis and in fact I used the driver they recommended most of the week as he was both a good driver as well as being friendly and entertaining.

Thank you Audrey and Savio for the wonderful hospitality. The rooms were extremely comfortable, spotless and beautifully furnished. We all had a lovely time, the breakfast was to die for especially the fresh fruit. We could not have chosen a more convenient location. We look forward to staying with you when we next visit.

Amazing experience, wonderful property and owners.enjoyed conversations about Goa with people who have experienced the culture and winds of change. The place smells of love for Goa, plants and antique furniture. Definitely a must go place for people who want to experience real spirit of Goa, its culture and great authentic stories. Lovely hosts both Savio and Audry.
