During our stay in India we stayed at several apartments, in various states and The Elegant Rental Apartment was by far the best experience we had! The apartment was perfect for the three of us. It was very clean, nicely decorated and felt like home to us. The beds and pillows were quite comfortable. It’s located in a safe, securely gated area with a guard on duty 24/7. The apartment complex is quiet and the grounds are surrounded by beautiful foliage and grassy areas.
Derek supplied us with a private car service which we appreciated very much. We strongly recommend his service over the other taxi services in Goa, his rates are the best as are the drivers. Derek also had excellent restaurant menus and their numbers on hand in the apartment.
During our stay there was an issue with a bee hive in the bathroom window. We called Derek and he had the security guard take care of it within minutes! Derek is a great host and we are excited to go back and stay at the lovely elegant rental apartments! Thank you Derek!
We had the pleasure of staying at Elegant Rental apartments in Colva and would to take this opportunity to thank the owners for a pleasant and comfortable stay. The apartment is well furnished with all the necessary details needed to make the stay as comfortable as possible. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and both the bedrooms have spacious wardrobes (there is another bathroom besides the ensuite one). AC is there in the hall as as well as the bedrooms, washing machine came in very handy to do our laundry as per our convenience. Kitcken is fully equipped with kettle, microwave, oven, fridge, cooking range, cutlery and utensils. The complex has 24hr security which felt good. There is a swimming pool in the complex which our children (aged 13 and 8)thoroughly enjoyed. Many cafeteria's close by offer excellent quality Goan snacks (Xanti and Menino) at reasonable prices. You can park your car in the garage downstairs if you rent or travel with your own car. All in all we had a good time and would definitely recommend this place to our family and friends.

You have everything that you would want to have a comfortable stay. Since all the facilitates are provided in the apartment, you can travel light. In case you need any help or assistance, Derek is just a text away. Be assured that you will be attended to in no time.
There are stores and a supermarket (Sho Faz) with 300 meters range that provide all the necessary essentials. If you are feeling relaxed enough not to cook breakfast, 7th Avenue Café is right outside the complex as also Xanti Bakery and Menino Jesus which provide excellent munches and goodies.
The apartment is located on the 3rd floor and is a spacious 2BHK fully furnished apartment with air conditioning in the living room and both the bedrooms.

You even have float beds for the pool and pool towels available. There is a dedicated covered parking available in the building in case you are travelling by car and need to park. Do let Derek know in advance you arrival and departure timings for a smooth experience. We wanted to check out early in the morning and Derek made the necessary arrangement just for that.
We really enjoyed ourselves and never felt away from home. This place is strongly recommended and a sure value for money.
First of all I would like to thank Derek and his family for this late booking.
It is very rare to find such an organised person as Derek in India.
He made the stay perfect everything was in place and nothing was to much trouble, he was also contactable 24/7.
Gated with 24 hour security.
Absolutely immaculate, The photos do not do it justice.
Is just like a good British one.
Gas cooker, microwave, large fridge and plenty of work surfaces, all the utensils your ever need, you even get one of the latest washing machines.
Lounge / Diner:
Very spacious with nice high ceilings, good AC and television set up.
Both a very good size with AC and the master had its own ensuite.
I only have one regret I didn't find this place earlier we would have definitely stayed there for the whole duration in Goa.
Would I recommend this place YES without hesitation.
So if you're considering hiring an apartment rather than staying in a hotel, give Derek a call and everything will be sorted out and you will have no problems at all.
Well done Derek it just proves that you work in the hotel industry and you know what your guests require and expect.
Rest in Goa with 24 November 7 December 2015. The complex protected, apartment liked, all as the photo. The only disadvantage: you have to climb on 3-rd floor without a lift. To the beach go 15-20 minutes, on the need to rent a scooter (machinery place is at the exit from the entrance.) Free pool, but we are not bathed (a lot of reagents throw there, that even be near the water is not possible). Next to the pool has a shower, wash. The territory of the well-groomed, spider friendly and always ready to help. In a nearby house has a gym, but we never got there. He opened with 17 hours, but not every day. In 18 already closed. Next, there are two store (market), cafe with Wi-Fi, a beauty salon. Mother Gonzalez very good woman - big her hello and thank you. The owner (Gonzalez) if necessary, wrote, he always tried to help. Thank you very much for him. IMPORTANT! When transferring money for the apartment, you fully pay commission, in full. If in rubles the 3 times : our bank takes %, their bank takes % and + conversion of $ %. If the $ payment 2 times: our bank takes % and their bank. And so all very much, once again, thank you very much!
