The quintessential Goan locale and hospitality. Beautiful cottages.Great locale.Warm and friendly hosts ( Savio, Pirkko, Shamina, Manuel, Max, Athena, Mantra, Shibu and the cats and Lily the goat). Kayak, sit and do nothing, play with the dogs, take a walk in a gloriously beautiful village, a dream vacation. Recommended strongly.

Idilic and homely stay in a Goa I didn't know. Nicely removed from the tourists and beach with a charm of it's own in a pretty Goan village. Pirkko and Savio have made a unique home where we enjoyed a listening to the birds and fish jumping in the lake and were close enough to venture to Anjuna night market.... More

We had a wonderful family vacation here. The best place yet to relax, rejuvenate, and still experience something different and fun. The kids loved all the pets, the treehouse, the river, kayaking, swimming. Adults got to relax a bit knowing the kids were exploring and yet safe. Beautiful, beautiful location, extremely gracious hosts, spacious, clean, eco friendly rooms, fun bathrooms... More

We can only reiterate all the other sparkling reviews! After a wonderful 5 days in the perfect care of Pirrko, Savio and their lovely children in Oct 2015, this remains such a special memory. I am ashamed it has taken me so long to write a review (I thought I had but can't see it!). We went with friends, who... More

Having stayed for 2 nights last year we stayed for 6 this time and weren't disappointed. Savio and Pirkko are really welcoming, the food is superb, the free use of bikes, kayaks etc a bonus and the swimming pool lovely. The fellow guests were all interesting and meal times a joy when we all sat round together. looking forward to... More

It is so good that I almost don't want to share the secret. This was my second visit in three months - my new happy place. Idyllic location by the river, lovely swimming pool, incredibly warm hosts, great meals, a bar with oodles of character - the best of inland Goa! Seldom one comes across a place with such good...

A beautiful room carved into a rock with an outdoor rainshower in a tropical forest, spacious lounging area around a lovely pool, homegrown food and faultless hospitality, a genuine experience of Goan life. Drivers, bicycles, kayaks, the best addresses for restaurants all provided. Whatever your idea of paradise, Olaulim Backyards is it! Pirkko, Savvio, their two gorgeous children and menagerie...

Staying in inland Goa with Pirkko, Savio and their children is a great and very personal experience. Lots of laughter, love for food, birds and new friends. You get to know both the hosting family and the other guests around the big dining table. The atmosphere is very cosy and friendly, the house donkey Mantra, the goat Lily and the... More

If your looking for a place to chill out, this place is worth checking out. Blessed with a beautiful setting on the banks of a lake, Savio and Pirko run a quality operation. You have the choice to sit and do nothing beside the infinity pool overlooking the lake, cycle around the small quiet roads, take a kayak out on... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Olaulim Backyards is a homestay with a difference. Situated in a small, peaceful Goan village, it’s a perfect get away from the busy coastal area but close enough to combine your stay with a day on the beach.Our three cottages are very rustic, and very exclusive, set in a coconut grove with a beautiful view on a lake. You can laze around the swimming pool or get active on kayaking, bird watching or cycling. ... more   less
