The owners are very lovely and offer a cheap and fast laundry service. The room was clean and there is a big hammock to lounge in if you get sick of the beach. The only... More

Our hosts Paulina and Edwin where what made this stay so memorable. Warm and welcoming they offered us invaluable insights into our stay in Anjuna and India in general. The rooms are secure, relatively basic and clean so very worthwhile monetary wise. The location is great if you don't want to be partying every night, far enough away from the... More

The rooms were well equipped. .. even hangers and towels were provided... a first for me from a low budget guest house. Each room has an outside seating area and the upstairs veranda furnished with sun loungers hammock and a swinging love... More

Stayed here as a couple on our first two nights in Goa. Paulina and Edwin could not have been more welcoming. They arranged taxi from the airport and also mopeds for us to hire (at extra cost). Great location by the sea and easy walk along the beach to the famous market. Would definitely stay again.

“sea facing room”
 of 5 bubbles hulomulo, Nov 23, 2014 | Read review
“all rooms are equally good.There is one room at the ground floor and i believe this is the only room located at the ground floor. so best for couples. if you want to enjoy the evening sea breeze and have a casual chit/chat with the other guests then take the rooms in the first floor. this place is usually filled with long-term tenants(6-7 months) so book early.”

“We had the room upstairs facing away from the direction of the beach - which apparently used to be her sons room. It was large, airy and had 2 separate locking doors, so very secure! Not to mention one of the best bathrooms and beds (an actual double bed, not two singles pushed together!) we found in all of india!”
