This was our 3rd visit to Goa and first at Lucia's, most of the reviews have said the same they are a lovely family who do their best to make you feel welcome, nothing is too much trouble ! This is the nearest you will get to staying with an Indian family, I learned how to make popadomes with Lucia she took me to the market to buy the rolling pin and things so i can do them at home she also showed me how to put my Sari on and lots more. Laurence is a lovely young man who bring brekki with a smile. The meal we had with the family was yummie the Prawns (as i am not a meat eater ) were the best i have eated anywhere in the world. Yes it is quiet here and that is so good ...but you have the Lui Hotel 50mts away with a pool also internet TV and a bar...so you can have the best of both like we did as they welcome you as long as you buy a drink....We never found any bugs or creepy things our room was very clean and beds fine...on the morning we left at 5am Joseph and Lucia got up made us coffee and arranged the Taxi to airport......Thank you to Joseph Lucia and Laurence for being such lovely hosts....Joanie & Leslie x

My wife ,Mothering law, Grandaughter and I returned last week from a 4 week stay at the fantastic Lucia Beach Guest House. Joseph, Lucia and Lawrence are excellent hosts and they made us feel right at home, nothing was too much trouble. They even invited us to a lovely home cooked meal in their living area which was a fantastic night, lovely food (I loved Josephs Chilli beef) They supplied plenty of Bacardi breezers, honey bee and feni. I left my wife and mothering law partying with Joseph, Lawrence and Lucia untill the early hours.
The accommodation was basic but clean, our room was large with a comfy bed (unusual for Goa) a sea view and a seperate room with Fridge (filled with beer and water at supermarket prices), this ajoined my mothering laws room to make one large apartment. The beds and towels were changed every 2 days and they include breakfast which is served on the balcony, Joseph is only too happy to point out the amazing variety of birds that you can watch from the balcony.
We have been to Goa many times (it just gets better and better) we find most of the people friendly but now consider Joseph, Lawrence and Lucia as actual friends
THANKYOU FOR AN EXCELLENT STAY AT A SUPERB GUEST HOUSE

We stayed here over xmas 2011 and found the guest house to be very basic.

It is situated near the Lui Beach resort.

We had the luxury room with a kitchen attatched, sprayed the rooms with HIT every night before going out and found a few dead bugs on the floor in the morning.

There is a door separating the next room which is locked but you can hear everything going on in that room.

Its a five minute walk to the beach, but there is a very steep sand slope to walk down to get to the beach, and a shack which is built right on the edge of the sea which you will have to walk under if you want to walk up the beach.

The view from the balcony is wonderful with lots of wildlife to see.

Lucia, Joseph and son Lawrence are wonderful hosts.

Returned last week from a 3 week stay at the fantastic Lucia Beach Guest House and thought it only fair to share this hidden gem with the world. This was our first trip to Goa but will certainly not be the last, Joseph, Lucia and Lawrence are the best hosts that you could possible ask for they made us so welcome and shared their home and food (which was possibly the best in Goa) with us we now cant wait to go back. The accommodation was basic but exceptionally clean, bed linen changed every 2 days and fresh towels as well, what more could you ask for. Lucia loves a big slab of Cadburys dairy milk, Lawrence is partial to Kit Kats and Joseph loves a drop of whisky (just a tip), they arranged for taxi to meet us at the airport and get us back safely the lovely taxi driver even waited whilst we checked our luggage in ensuring that the airport boys didn't bother us. We could not be happier with our stay and will be returning next year so THANK YOU Joseph, Lucia and Lawrence for everything and see you soon love Billy and Sue xxx

We stayed here for over 3 weeks in Nov and Dec 2010 and loved it here.
Joseph and Lucia are very welcoming. The rooms are a good size and are very clean. They also have a fridge and hot water.
The location is good if you want to be close to the beach but also want some peace and quiet. There are restaurants nearby and a bus stop 2 minutes away.
The breakfasts are lovely and they vary it everyday bringing it to your balcony.
This place is fantastic value for money but be sure to book in advance especially over Xmas as they have guests who come back year after year.

This year was our second visit to Lucia Guest House at the southern end of Candolim (the quieter part but only a few minutes away from the many shops and restaurants. Our wonderful hosts Lucia, Joseph and Lawrence (their son) were as welcoming and charming as ever, and it very much felt like a home away from home (but in paradise!). The guest house is clean and in a lovely location, from the back of the property there is just a small field and then the sea, right on your doorstep. Breakfast is served on your balcony or in your room by either Joseph or Lucia - coffee, wonderful fresh fruit and any manner of Goan breakfast delights, and unfailingly great conversation and tips on the area. Joseph was born in Candolim and has plenty of stories about what it was like before the package tours put it on the map! He helped us identify all the various colourful birds and wildlife that we watched from our balcony as we munched on our breakfast and chatted. The rooms are a good size, clean and comfortable by local standards, and the family could not be nicer or more helpful. This most recent visit will most definitely not be our last. Oh and one small tip, if you are going to stay there, Lucia is partial to a slab of Galaxy chocolate!! We would thoroughly recommend this hotel for its charming hosts and excellent location. They have a host of 'regulars' who have equally been convinced of its charms.
