Casa Mia was incredible. My husband and I were visiting family in India for 2 weeks and decided to go to Goa for 3 nights. We have never lived in India and so we weren't sure how to go about booking anything in Goa. The star ratings for the hotels in India can be inaccurate and not up to the standards of American hotels so we were a bit nervous about that. I ended up finding Casa Mia on trip advisor and after reading all the reviews, I called Rohit to get more information. After speaking with Rohit, I had a really good feeling about it and we booked it. Thank God we did! This place was gorgeous, clean, and relaxing. It's not like being in a resort, but gives such a unique experience. The rooms are decorated nicely and have an indian/beachy feel to it. There is more then enough space to lounge around the apartment. The two helpers are really nice and will help with anything you need. The Wifi signal was weak, but that didn't bother us too much. We had the cab driver stop at the grocery store on the way to the hotel and picked up some water bottles and snacks that we would munch on during our stay. The grocery store is less then a 10 minute walk.
Althought breakfast is not included, the beach shacks (restaurants lined along side the beach) are literally a 3 miniute walk. it's much better to have breakfast served to you on the beach then in your room anyway. There are many restaurants and beach shacks that you can have dinnner and lunch at as well. There are water sports available on this side of the beach too. The location is perfect. Once you get on the beach (which is 3 minutes away), you can walk to main calangute. It's about a 20 minute walk. The crowd there is more local. There are a lot of cute shops there where you can buy clothes, cashews, and more. From there, you can walk another 20 minutes and get to Baga, that is where they have nights clubs, bars, and nice restaurants. My husband and I usually walked our way to Baga but would take a cab back. If you don't like walking, you can always take a cab.
Overall, I would go back to Casa Mia anytime I am in Goa. It was beyond clean and had a nice feel to it. The bed was comfortable and it was a nice change from your typical resort type of vacation. I never write reviews, but Casa Mia was so amazing that I felt the need to so it can help travelers like my husband and I find a good and reliable stay in Goa.
