“Amazing location, wonderful owners – fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I stayed in these huts for about two months at the end of my travels. Palolem itself is a beautiful place; chilled, relaxed and full of breathtaking scenery. Staying in these huts really made it feel like home.
Just a 2 minute (probably less) walk from the beach, the huts are situated in an amazing spot that feels really private and safe, unlike a few of the other huts in the area which aren't as well kept and rather exposed in terms of privacy.
The huts themselves are really well structured, simple, clean and spacious.
There's been real thought into the interior too, with simple things like mirrors, lovely wooden towel hangers, cupboards and shelves which may seem like basic things however many of the other huts lack these items which make a real difference.
Every hut has got a gorgeous little balcony with a table, chairs and an AMAZING hammock looking out onto the beautiful garden space which has been sectioned off from everywhere else and feels really cosy and considered.
There is 24hour WiFi and the owners are right on the case if there are any problems.

There is a really friendly atmosphere and sense of community here and Nitesh and his family are so accommodating I couldn't have wished for anything better.

If I ever return to Palolem - I'll be staying here for sure.
I really do highly recommend that anyone heading for that area stays here as it's just a dream!

These huts are a great find: charming with great rates, the best location and WIFI included.

Huts are spacious, simple, clean - with a double-bed (has mosquito netting), a ceiling fan, western bathroom. The shaded porch with hammock makes a great place to spend a few hours when you're not on the nearby beach. And the beach! Lots of great beaches nearby but gorgeous Palolem is just a few minutes away on foot. The owners offer tours too - waterfall visit, spice plantation, etc., but I don't have any first-hand experience of these right now. (One day, I hope!). Can say that the taxi service they've been running for years is dependable and friendly. What else to say...? Enjoy!

hiddengarden is the absolute best place I've spent my time. small, cozy and simple, with the best cabins in palolem. Nitesh which it is a fantastic person who can only love. when you have been there for a week, it's almost like home and family. can only highly recommend the place. and it lies just 1 minute walk from one of India's best beaches
