I finalized on this after lot of review reading, checking with friends for over 2-3 weeks, as this was my first trip to Goa with wife. Travelling with better half is always critical, in terms of staying in right place. I was checking with Bougainvillea (5 buildings after this one), as recommended by a friend of mine & it wasn't available for my travel dates. So, the owner of Bougainvillea gave me this option when I asked him to recommend a good place. Well, I am thankful to him as well. This turned out to be a great place to stay, with no frills attached & no conditions& no problem whatsoever!.
Great rooms, spacious & clean bathrooms, balcony.. as good as a nice hotel room, but spacious!. Owner, Salvador is very friendly as is his family. We stayed there for 4 nights (Thu-Sun), no issue at all. He arranged for a bike for us to roam around, which always is mandatory for anyone in Goa. Dont use cabs, they will rip you apart.. Hire a bike, activa or some gear-less scooter..easy, quick to move around.
For food, I had to try different options/places & will be writing separate reviews of those this week. Some of them deserve a really long one!!!.
So, overall a great, economical, friendly, clean, no frills, no-nonsense, private place to stay while in Goa. Its located in Candolim, 5 mins walk to the beach as well (close to Fort Aguada).
This is by far the most under rated guesthouse/resort I have ever been to, need more reviews & feedbacks from guests who have gone there before.. I will surely be staying here anytime I visit Goa again...
