Joe and Marietta made our stay in Goa marvelous. The guest house is located close to the beach and very comfortable. Also not very heavy on the purse. Both Joe and Marietta had been splendid hosts.

Hello Tourists,

We were a group of 8 members from Hyderabad who visited Goa from April 6-9, 2012
This Joe & Marietta's guest house is just as neat, well-furnished & spacious as your own house. You will never have the feel of landing up in a normal lodging hotel. Joe is a simple & respectable man, as is Marietta. This house (I cannot dare to say guesthouse) is very near to Calungute beach & the local market. Baga is few KM away, but you get all help from Joe to get rental bikes arranged. Joe is just a shout away from this house (they live in opposite house). They both are very friendly in whatever way they can. The house is well-furnished with neat beds, washrooms, pure drinking water, furnished kitchen, TV, A/c, fridge etc.

I especially would like to thank Joe on arranging this house for us on just a very short notice. Marietta had been so kind. I loved their dog & the cat who always sits on the wall & watches people. This guesthouse is reasonably priced with excellent & friendly owners. My only advise to those who stay here is just please keep the place clean & tidy. Please follow the Guest instructions on the wall. This is a highly recommended place to stay in Calangute.

Thanks, Joe, for all your kindness & your hospitality during our stay at Goa. I would wish to be in contact with you and would love to stay at your place once again on my future visit to Goa. Please remember me & offer me more discount !! :) :) ;) (just kidding)

This is a very good place to stay, near to all famous beaches in the North Goa. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Especially good for the groups. We are a group of 18 guys booked the Palm, jackfruit & cinnamon rooms for 2 nights. Very reasonable price for the facilities. Joe is very helpful and helped us to book a vehicle for our day trip in a short notice.

We were a group of 4 friends who were visiting Goa for the first time. We were looking for a good accomodation near Baga/ Calangute as these are the happening places in Goa. We got to know of this guest house through Tripadvisor and based on the ratings decided to give it a chance. I have no regrets in booking this guest house as it turned out to be better than my wildest imagination.

Plus points-
1) Amazing owners/hosts JOE and MARIETTA- The most cheerful and loving people. You can ask them for just about anything like car/bike rentals, shops, places to visit and they will help you with everything.

2) Location- located at 10 mins walking diatance to Calangute beach yet a little away from the crowded markets ,there is a peaceful enviornment ideal for a vacation.

3) Good Value for money- With the pricing that they have and the rooms they provide, i think its a steal.

4) Rooms- All big, clean and spacious, i don't think there is any scope for complaints.

5) Morning Breakfast- Amazing Goan breakfast prepared by Marietta was simply delicious. Only problem was you get a fixed quantity (its not a buffet breakfast) so you never have enough of the tasty stuff.

Shortcomings-

NONE*
(* conditions apply-I could find None, opinion may differ)

Thanks Joe and Marietta for the wonderful time and memories of Goa and i would definitely recommend this to anyone planning to visit Goa

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the guest house are slightly more spacious
