Charlie, the owner, is very friendly and helped us organise all our reasonably-priced transport while we were here. The food in Lenny's restaurant on the premises is excellent. Baloo the dog is an important aspect of the visit and graciously receives pats when he lies at your feet during dinner time. South Goa is a good option for people who... More

Considering the limited options in South Goa of budget places, this place certainly cuts a sweet deal..Manager is friendly and makes an effort to serve your needs well, rooms are clean and reasonably well maintained..Just a couple of issues, its far from walking distance from any beach. No proper restaurant within close reach either..Make sure u carry your own blanket... More

South-Goa beaches are quiet, calm and not crowded, and Carmona is a great base. Veeniola is a chilled-out, informal guest house with comfortable rooms where you are left pretty much to yourself. Pick a room with a balcony and you can spend some sultry time sitting outside. The lounge has a little book-shelf if you want something to read as... More

Not sure how this place is gathering good reviews. I made a reservation for a superior twin private ensuite at this place through hostelworld.com on Sept 16th, 2014 for Dec 31st, 2014. I never heard from this hotel on my reservation. So, I wrote to them on Oct 6th and again on Oct 10th in vain. Finally, On Oct 17th,... More

After hearing for years that we should travel to Goa as part of our India trip, my sister and I made the journey to the beach only to be disappointed by places like Anjuna and Palolem. The beaches were dirty, the towns uneventful, and the accommodations overpriced. Then we arrived in Cavelossim and met the owner of Veeniola - Charlie... More

Veeniola scores on all aspects be it budget, food , rooms, Staff, or services 1) Budget and Room: We stayed in a room with 900/night. It was a basic room, but a nice and cozy one. There are no aircons in the room, its just a wall fan. (Might be a downside for some). However the time I visited, the... More

It was a pleasant stay for 5 nights. To start with, Charlie, the owner of the guest house is a very friendly and kind person. The place is very well maintained and peaceful. The washrooms are clean and the rooms are big enough with balconies. There is an in house restaurant owned by Lenny, a kind heart and helpful person.... More

I went to Goa during the monsoons and I contacted the owner of the place directly. I must mention that the rates are negotiable and it also depends on the room-type (ground floor or balcony). Since I was travelling solo and was looking for a budget trip, I booked a double-room (they don't have single beds) on the ground-floor for... More

We visited this place again in exactly 6 months and this place didn't disappoint at all. This time around we felt more at home as we knew all their staff and they knew us by our names. Veeniola almost feels like a 2nd home now, with Charlie, Lenny, Deepak and Richard selflessly cater to our needs. The place is very... More
