Long time no beee..ach. The girls were after us for a beach holiday and we decided that we will drive down to Goa. It was a bit serendipitous to discover that some friends had put life into a new venture - and looked after a place that had cottages on the beach - South Goa. We decided that we'd go with that, and even though they were in start up mode, we were ok because we're not finicky travellers.
The good things about this property - comfortable and interesting cottages, bang on the beach - and a great beach too, white sand, not too many people, nice breakers, get out of bed and walk onto the beach, literally, great attitude of the management. After a brief visit to North Goa and suffering the chaos on Calangute Beach (visit was a bad idea and a complete mistake - thanks to trying to meet one of the daughter's friends holidaying somewhere there), we were so happy to be staying in South Goa and enjoying the pristine beaches. A big plus was our friends Carol and Sandra who put in a lot of hard work and settled us in - we were amongst the first guests on this property. They made us comfortable, worked hard behind the scenes to make sure we had a great and memorable holiday.
We were mobile in our own car and decided to sample the local cuisine and music scene, with helpful insights from Sandy and really helpful directions from Deepak (who provides some of the best directions in town to get from anywhere to anywhere -seriously!), we got to catch the action at nearby restaurants Baywatch, Martin's, Mum's Kitchen (Panaji).
The girls loved the direct and perpetual access to the beach, had fun making some new friends (also guests at Windsong), painting the wooden chairs and generally had a great time, sated for sea and sand time.
Wonderful, happy holiday. Great memories.
