“The best place!! Love it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We arrived very late for the relaxing part of a trip around india and relaxing it was. Set in among a wooded area, a short walk to the beach and some shops, veenolia is the perfect idillic hideaway. Peaceful; tranquil yet fun, it is a wonderful, family run accomodation. Charlie is the main man and is a sweetheart! The rooms are clean and comfy and the staff make you feel right at home. Attached to the hotel is a restaurant and bar run by Lenny! I swear his prawns should be famous! Have never had seafood as good and we still compare every prawn to Lennys!! great chilled out bar. Overall veeniolia is fab! The only criticism is we didnt stay long enough!

Charlie is the man behind the show. He and his mom are the owners and run the place with a lot of love and care. The man friday is fast efficient and effective. The rooms are nice and spacious with very clean bathrooms. There's a good collection of books. There are ACs but only in select rooms.
The place is quiet and perfect for solitude, the beach is at least a 15 min walk and there's an excellent eating joint on the way to the beach. The dogs on the way to the beach in the residential patch are a bother and had to be driven away everytime using sticks or stones everytime we took a walk to the beach.
One of the initial things that give you a great feeling about the place are the caller tunes you get to hear if you either call Charlie or his mom. A highly recommended place which is value for money. Doesn't have a pool and while the kitchen is there, may not be functional during monsoon or off season.

Room Tip: Upper rooms are better as they have a balcony and it's a great view

We stayed here whole of last week and it was a very good decision. The place is owned and run by a friendly bloke called Charlie Miranda who takes good care of the guests. The holiday home is nestled in a quite village of Carmona surronded by greenery and away from the Cavelossim chaos. The in house restaurant Por Di Sol is run by the Flamboyant Lenny who is more than happy to suggest food stuff and cooks like he would cook for himself. The restaurant is modestly priced and gives you value for your money.
Veeniola was a good decision and I would definitely recommend this place to people looking for a nice and comfortable stay which is not too heavy on the pocket.

Room Tip: Choose the room with the balcony on the upper level.

We stayed here in November and again in April. All the staff are really helpful. Excellent food in the restaurant. Rooms are spotless, airy and spacious. Absolutely loved staying here and would recommend for good value, cleanliness and lovely friendly staff. Many thanks to Mrs Miranda, Charlie, Lenny, Deepak and Ajit.

We arrived late at night and Charles kindly allowed us to leave check in till the morning which was nice, he also arranged an airport pick up.
Basic double Room was very spacious with ensuite and also very clean. There was also mossie nets on windows.
Attached restaurant ran by Lenny served lovely tasty food from morning till late at a reasonable price.
Veeniola is located on a quite road and a 15 min walk from a gorgeous quite beach.
If I was looking for a peaceful getaway I would not hesitate to stay again.

Checked in at the Veeniola Holiday Home for a two day stay.We decided upon the hotel based on the excellent rating on TripAdvisor and it really was an excellent choice and a wonderful experience. We ultimately extended one more day here due to the wonderful time we had here.
The best part is that the hotel rooms compared to its cost was very cheap and better than most of the guest house we have visited. The cleanliness was superb. The bathrooms were simple and very clean with 24 hours hot water. The rooms had basic amenities with a small balcony attached to it and the maintenance was excellent.
The owner of the place: Charlie is a true gentleman and the staffs were very friendly. An excellent small restaurant: "Lenny's Kitchen" attached to the guest house serves The Best Food in Goa according to our experience. The price was very reasonable and the food was always mouth-watering. Lenny the chef and the one who runs the restaurant was very helpful, social and made it very comfortable for us to spend time in the restaurant . We met a lot of lovely people here and had great time with delicious food and drinks. Would definitely make Veeniola Holiday Home a stop again in our next visit. Thank You for the lovely stay.
