Stayed in Jan'16. The property is about 3-4 km from North Goa main tourist places. The place is in calm and serene surroundings. Rooms are neat and clean. Mr. Savio, the owner, is very nice person and for most of the things he takes care himself. Breakfast served was good but with fixed quantities. It is bed and breakfast and... More

I stayed here with a group of friends in mid January The property is in the heart of north Goa, very close to happening beaches of Calangute & Baga but still nested in a tiny beautiful village of Saligao which has a countryside feel to it. The property is well maintained and you feel the coziness and warmth once you... More

Savio and Audrey are now like family and Quinta Da Graca is home! Set in my most fav village, this homestay is ideal for a solo traveler looking to explore culture, talk at length, bask in the sun and discover. Lost count of the times I have stayed here, cannot wait to get back :)

I wanted to give this a 2.5 but TripAdvisor doesn't give me that option. Stayed during the peak season. Could find availability here at the last minute. The home is typically Goan style.

The property is beautiful with a lot of greenery. The rooms are spacious with clean bathrooms. Beyond this I really can't recollect any niceties. Service is passe. We were actually surprised by the other reviews mentioning great breakfast and service.

Firstly, this is not a hotel or a B&B. It is a homestay. This categorization (on all websites) might have helped in setting the expectations right. To start with positives 1. Location: Tagged on Google maps, Easy to find. Good place to stay if you have your own commute. 2. Parking: Though there was no closed parking, two cars can... More

They say old is gold. The common proverb perhaps can get a new meaning if anyone visits this place. Run by a Goan couple, the sprawling bungalow has a number of rooms and an independent cottage at a revamped Portuguese property which is more than a hundred years old.
