“Perfect guest house”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

My boyfriend and I have just spent 2 nights at Bluebird and really liked it! Janet, Anton, Angelina, Jacinta and Sultan were the perfect hosts and really looked after
It was great value for money and the room was great!
Janet & Anton also arranged a taxi for us to go to our next destination and helped us with hiring a bike and getting our laundry done!
The guest house is really near small Vagator beach which is lovely. Would highly recommend!

We spent 2 weeks with Janet and Anton and felt like we were staying at a friend's charming house. We were just 5 minutes walk from the stairs leading down to small Vagator. The rooms were proper, clean and spacious. The rooms with little balconies in front were especially cool. The masala chai was creamy and spicy and Anton's cooking is the best we tried in Goa- just ask, their recommendations are spot-on. Its really nice to come back from a day of touring and feel like we've come back to friends to share our experiences and talk about what other great things there are to see in Goa. Traveling with a family, you begin to crave amenities such as a stocked fridge, strong fan, mosquito proofed rooms that are big enough to hang out in in case you've gotten too much sun! Our daughter loved hanging out with Angelina and Jacinda and their gentle dog, Sultan. We'll be back again and again and again.

Room Tip: Loved the cool front non-aircon room w/ large balcony AND A ROCKING CHAIR or the Aircon room a bit f...

I stayed for a total of 3-weeks in March at Blue Bird Guest House and can only reinforce what other guests have written in their reviews. Antonio and Janet were consummate hosts, always eager to make sure I was enjoying my stay, never flustered at any question or request. They have created a really welcoming 'family' atmosphere at Blue Bird, which as a single traveller I found very appealing. Their little girls Angelina and Jacinta are just adorable, and don't be afraid of the gentle giant 'Sultan' ... the friendliest German Shepherd you will ever meet.
What more to say ... meals from the Blue Bird kitchen were sumptuous, the rooms clean, nicely furnished and mosquito-free! It's also in the perfect location - just far away enough from the beach bars and restaurants that you'll get a healthy, noise-free night's sleep every night.
This place is a real gem. The perfect homely oasis to retreat to during your stay in North Goa. Highly, highly recommended!

Room Tip: Can't recall the room number, but there are two air-con rooms at the back on the right of the gu...

We Stayed in goa, vagator, but ate in the restaurant every morning, because the home made fruit salad is strongly addictive.
When we went home, we decided to live in the guesthouse when we return to goa in 2013
I have just booked 2 rooms there, because you Can NOT find anybody in the entire World WHO is as Nice an hospital as Janet and Antonio. I Will never go to goa without going to bluebird!

My 8-day night in the Blue Bird Guest House was very comfortable in a clean air-conditioned room with great service provided by the hosts Antonio and Janet. The room was very clean and airy and furnished mostly with light rattan-type furniture. The washroom was relatively small but bright with a small window and tiled all over to facilitate maintenance.

Blue Bird's friendly, laid-back ambiance was perfect for a relaxing stay near the beaches at Vagator yet far enough away to create a relatively quiet and secluded hideaway. The hosts' family, including their two charming young daughters Jacinda and Angelina made you feel quite at home with their informal playful antics. Having found a great place to stay in north Goa, I would definitely return to this guest house, one which offers great value.

Room Tip: The original wing with 4 rooms has AC and is a bit more expensive than rooms in the later addition b...

Two my friends and I stayed there in the end of October 2012. We were looking for guesthouse and had already looked at few different places. Finally we decided to stay at Bluebird for three days. Rooms seemed to be well equipped for their price, and it wasn't too far from our previous stay. When these three days expired, we decided to stay there one week more, till the end of our vacation.
What I liked there:
- this place is very beautiful. It is run by friendly and hospitable people: Antonio, Janet and their little daughters.
- Well-equipped rooms: refridgerator, powerful fan, shower, toilet, few electric sockets, TV and the wardrobe.
- their restraunt: we used to have breakfast and supper there. Few times we asked Antonio to cook us the fresh fish and seafood that we had bought at the fishmarket. The fish and seafood were wonderful.
- there is a free wifi network in the restraunt, but there is no coverage in rooms;
What I disliked:
- Fan did not help in certain situations, and sometimes it was hot in the rooms. Especially after the rain (we arrived at the very end of monsoon).
- Once I saw two big bugs (probably cocroaches) in the room. However, I am not afraid of them.
- My room #6 is at the side of Ozran beach road, and it was a bit noisy, especially when the windows were open.

Antonio and Janet, thank you for your hospitality!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a/c unit if you arrive during the monsoon.

I booked three nights at The Bluebird after reading the rewievs on tripadvisor, and ended up staying four. Antonio and Janet (with their lovely daughters) really are the best hosts you can wish for. Such kind and friendly people!!! The room showed good value for the money we paid, with a cupboard, two fans, fridge and towels. And SUPER clean! The bathroom smelled a little bad, but this is my experience with almost all indian bathrooms... Free wifi in the restaurant for the guesthouse's guests, and 10 min walking distance to the beach! :)

Even if you stay there or not, make sure to eat in their restaurant! It had some of the best food I tried on our Indiatrip, like the crabsoup and prawn tikka!
I would stay here again if I came back to Vagator.
