We stayed in a 3-bedroom villa that had a living room, dining area and a well-equipped kitchenette. The kitchenette included a water-purifier, stove, dish-washer, mixer-and-grinder, all the necessary utensils, etc. This was really helpful since one of the couples in our group had a baby. If you have a big group or family, renting such a villa is the perfect accommodation to let you all stay together while providing the necessary privacy.
This place is located very close to Fort Aguada and near a street that has a lot of great eating places, supermarkets, spas, etc. Some of the most famous beaches and clubs in Goa are fairly close from here, though it'll take more than an hour by car to reach the southern beaches.
The breakfast was included as a part of our package, but was nothing great to write home about. The portions of shampoo, body-lotion, toilet-paper, etc. was miserly, lasting barely for a day and was not replenished without being separately told. The toilet didn't have a health-faucet, which is a little strange for a place in India. The sofa in the living room had cushions that slide down the moment you try to sit on them - this was _very_ irritating. The TVs were old and blurry CRT-TVs rather than LCD-TVs, which are the norm elsewhere. There is no AC in the living-room (only in the bedrooms).
Unlike other places that merely block your credit-card at the time of check-in and then charge you based on the actuals upon check-out, this place charges it upfront, which makes it difficult to make adjustments later (as was the case with us where they overcharged us due to a mis-communication).
To be fair, the staff were responsive to our needs and quite polite and helpful, If only they could iron out these issues, this will be a really great place to stay while you're in Goa with friends or family.
