Joe and Marietta's Guesthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Really enjoyed our trip to Goa and Joe and Marietta's guesthouse was one of the reasons. It is situated close to Baga and Candolim beaches, but still tucked away in a quiet locality, so that you manage to get that much needed seclusion after a day of adventure, shopping and partying. It was just like coming back home after a long day and both Joe and Marietta were extremely hospitable. What I especially liked was that they very readily agreed to reschedule our booking (which we had to do owing to some work matters) with no additional charge. Moreover, they sent us very precise directions to the guesthouse, which was very professional on their part. We managed to find the place without asking a single passerby, which is a big deal in a crowded place like Goa. So I would definitely recommend this place as an affordable, clean and homely stay option in Goa.

How kind can people be, if they choose to be, even after just a few days acquaintance. We are touched by your thoughts about us. Thanks a lot...

Had a 3 nights stay in Orange room of the guest house. It was an excellent experience. The owners of the guest house are so helpful and polite.Joe Uncle and Marietta Aunty you are simply superb. The breakfast provided by aunty was awesome. They arranged an Activa for us.The room was spacious and well maintained, neat and clean. The A/C was brand new and silent. The guest house is very near to Calangute beach. Baga beach is also very near to the place. Thanks Uncle and Aunty for making our stay wonderful. Next time whenever we visit Goa will definitely stay at your guest house.

Room Tip: Rooms are clean and spacious. For 2 persons Orange room is good.

I'm SO happy we stayed at Joe & Marietta's! It's a short walk from the centre and the beach, but at the same time it's in the peaceful bit of Calangute.
The room was simple but clean and spacious, and the hosts were very hospitable - they even helped us arrange a scooter.
On my next visit to Goa, I'll definitely stay at J&M again.

Joe and Marietta’s Guesthouse is an excellent place to stay in Calangute for travelers on a budget, who require a simple, nice, neat and clean place for a holiday. It’s located in a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle, approx. one km from the main Calangute beach area, which one can walk up to within 10 to 15 mins. We stayed at the Palm which is a very nice, spacious, 3 bedroom apartment on the first floor, well maintained, with two bathrooms, with AC’s in all rooms, fans, along with hot and cold water facilities. This is an ideal unit for families or groups, where up to 8 to 10 to be accommodated comfortably. The breakfast is nice, adequate to start the day with for light breakfast eaters, this comes with refreshing coffee or tea of your choice. Joe and Marietta are extremely helpful and non interfering hosts. We highly recommend Joe & Marietta’s Guesthouse in Calangute, and will definitely stay here again in the future!

After reading the reviews of the place here, we decided to book it for our week long stay in Goa. And it did not disappoint us! Our group of 8 found the rooms spacious, clean and very comfortable. Our hosts were always willing to help, and it added to the charm of the place. The location is great too- just a 10 minutes walk to the beach. It is in a quiet corner of a street and is very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed complete privacy and safety, and we would recommend this place to anyone looking for an affordable and comfortable stay in Goa.

Very spacious rooms! given a living room, we kept all our luggage there and left the bedroom just for, well, sleeping. Amazing hospitality by the owners!! Very nice service!! They just, literally, stay just across the road - so you can even just shout if you need help!! They even arranged for a bike within (and you can mark my words) two minutes!! This place is very close to Calangute - just two minutes on a bike and 10 minutes walking!

Close to the noisiest beach in Goa and yet to peaceful!! Loved the stay there!!

The room charges are within budget completely - including the AC and the refrigerator!!

Staying at this place, I am sure I need not look anywhere else, whenever I go to Calangute, Goa.

Room Tip: Cinnamon is very spacious it has a living area too! Orange is very good too!!
