Whenever I want to go to Goa the first thing I do is to call Alexandre and book my room at his Alfa Guest House. The reason is simple: it is the most homely place to stay. I have been staying here since its inception. And I have seen the changes over the years, all changes for the better, with the rooms all spruced up, nice and comfortable with basic amenities. The place has expanded and now I choose room # 7 on the first floor that has a small balcony to sit and watch the world go by - well, slowly. There is a TV in the room in case I wish to catch my favourite serials or some sporting action. And I can sunbathe on the terrace if I am too lazy to walk to the nearby Calangute beach. Restaurants and bars and shops are just a short walk away. The place is just rightly located, not bang on the beach and not too far from the action. It gives you that solitude as well as camaraderie of company, depending on your state of mind. I was there earlier in May and now just can't wait for my next trip to Alfa! After all, this is one home away from home.
