“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

I have just returned from a 2 week stay in The White rooms in Villa 4. Location- 10-10, cleanliness 10-10 and dealing with the owner Laura an absolute pleasure, would recommend this for a great base whilst in Calangute- only 1 complaint - poor shower with no water pressure but easily overlooked based on everything else aforementioned!!!

Traveling to a place like goa on a budget trip is not easy. And even more difficult is finding a good place within the budget you have.
The White House is an excellent place to stay. Extremely hospitable family. Alex, his wife and their daughter are a delight to stay with. The rooms are clean, neat and spectacular. Extremely delicious breakfast on their menu which is a treat to enjoy. Close to the Calangute beach, super market, medical store and plenty of eat out options. This is one place you must stay at

"The White House"

Advantages:
1. Close to the Calangute Beach, apprx. 5 min walk
2. Rooms, bathrooms are clean and well maintained

Disadvantages:

1. Basic necessities like Back-up power supply(inverter) connection not available. So if u have booked an AC Room and there is no power supply...then ur AC room is worst than non-AC room, coz...its really very hot there.
When we stayed there...and there was no power supply..when enquired abt it...the answer we got was...."doesn't power go off in ur city as well..."

2. No in-house restaurant...so would never get ur morning cuppa of tea. After enquiring around we came to know that there are couple of restaurants that offer stay+breakfast at very much the same price.

3. No toiletries provided...

4. Do not expect hot water 24*7

5. Mosquito repellant coils not provided when asked for.

6. Room tariifs are not published anywhere...even if u search on the internet u wont get....they have managed to keep it unrevealed.
Room tariffs vary depending upon peak/off season and even if it is off-season room tariff also depends upon weekday/weekends ....So bottom-line "BARGAIN".....i think 700-800 is a decent amt for non-AC room and 900-1000 for AC room.

7. The transport service provided by the hotel is quite expensive...Rs 300 for 10km drive till Mapusa(r u kidding!!!!).......kindly ask the road-side cabbie drivers for a better bargain....

8. Important thing...there is no call bell or intercom(read: phone) facility for room service.
Most of the time u would keep waiting for the lady owner to come out of her house.

We had also read the reviews on this ste when opted for White House...but there are certain other things also which need to be considered. Hopefully, this review was helpful to all the readers

Room Tip: Highers floors are quite hot...opt for ground floor or the middle floor.

Stayed at the White House for 4 nts. Good location at the end of Holiday Street, surprisingly quiet yet plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. The room was a good size and clean with nice balcony. Owners very helpful and friendly and rates good value. Access to beach nearby few minutes walk but not the best part of beach. Very easy to get taxi up to Candolim which in my opinion is a nicer part of beach. Would recommend.

Very clean nice rooms but lack basic facilities like power, toiletries in the bathroom and health shower in the toilet. Dina the lady owner is friendly. But the other servant/husband/owner is rude to customers when its time to checkout. He is completely devoid of etiquettes. Women and children please avoid. He has no idea how to do business in these times of internet.

Well, I visited here last year and stayed here for 3 days, first we decided for 2 days but later we extended for 1 more day. Alex, is very nice guy he suggested up where all we should go, and was very good in communication.
This is just 500 Meters from calangute beach so location is perfect. Only think which you can miss is You will only get brakefast here, no lunch and dinner will be provided but this was not problem for us as we were on vacation so love to explore news places to eat.

I am gonna stay here next time as well and also Jolly's stack was my second destination where we used to spend entire day at beach side.
