We wanted a quiet romantic getaway in South Goa. Heaven Goa had such great reviews we chose it. We arrived from the train at 3am in the rain. Sunil, one-half of the husband & wife duo that own and run this charming guesthouse, greeted us immediately ushering us to our room. When I got in the shower, tired and sweaty from the train ride, I knew I truly was in heaven when the water coming out of the shower head was hot! The mattress was even soft (for Indian standards). The next morning we met Karen, the other half, who greeted us and tended to our coffee and breakfast needs. Suma, the housekeeper and cook, served us wonderful coffee, fresh fruit and eggs. They have pets who will also eat with you, so anyone who isn't a pet person may be surprised...but anyone else who has traveled India knows this is common practice. That was even heaven for me to be around such well cared for healthy animals while in India. Sunil and Karen attended to our every need while staying at Heaven Goa. They arranged a scooter rental for us, which was a cheap and easy way to explore the surrounding beaches and towns - Colva became one of our favorites. Karen gave us a map on our 2nd day and told us to check out a Spice Farm, and this ended up being one a trip highlight. Heaven Goa is a serene guesthouse that fit our need for relaxation perfectly. We can't wait to go back.
