“Kudos to Joe & Marietta!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We stayed at Joe's for 6 days, and this was my second trip with friends here. Joe uncle and Marietta aunty are extremely warm and hospitable. The rooms are huge, clean and fully air conditioned. There's ample of parking available too, and they even arrange for scooters for rent. Its just 5 minutes away from the petrol pump and the main market area, and yet located at a very quiet, peaceful location. Waking up to Marietta aunty's breakfast after a looong party night is the best part! They help you with everything you need and make it so comfortable and homely that you don't feel like staying at a hotel. It's reasonable, beautiful and ensures you'll have a nice, relaxing vacation!
I don't think I'm gonna ever rent any other guesthouse whenever I go to Goa! :)

Room Tip: Choose Palm if your'e on a trip with more than 6 people. With a whole floor to yourselves, it...

The 9 of us had a fantastic time here. The rooms were nice, the ACs were good, we got hot water whenever we wanted, we had the apartment to ourselves to come and go as we pleased and the owners were very polite and helpful. They provided us with abundant water and were ready to help us regarding any matter. They even arranged for the scooters we wanted to rent. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to try their breakfast so I cannot speak for that. The beach was at a decent distance and the cost of stay was very reasonable. On the whole it was a wonderful experience and we would definitely choose this as our accommodation in the future. I wish them the best.

I returned back again at Joe and Marietta's Guesthouse and would again like to say thanks a lot to them.
Joe confirmed our booking within short notice and the service and stay was as good as my previous review.

This place has always been value for money and i hope it always stays the same.
And Joe, I forgot to mention before I left.
The sofa kept out in the garden is a lovely idea but when i look up and see those coconuts above my head it scares me to sit there.
Will definitely visit your place again.

Thanks for the kind words. Also thanks for the sofa suggestion. Anytime we will put some kind of cover over the sofa so that no one feels scared of the coconuts. Thanks again.

The place is awesome. It is 5 minutes away from Calangute and 10 minutes away from Baga. The owners are very nice, cheerful and helpful. They place is clean and properly maintained. There are ACs in each room. There is a TV in the living room. They also have a wi-fi connection. They switch it on when you ask them to. They provide ample breakfast and tea/coffee for everyone. If you are come in a group of 6 to 8, this place holds amazing value for money.

The problem is that there are no blankets, so you have to switch off the AC after a while. Hope they provide blankets in the future.

My friends and I stayed at Joe and Marietta's in the Palm Appt. and our experience was unforgettable. Right from booking the guest to our stay, everything was easy. Joe was so helpful, he even messaged us the directions on the day we landed Goa. Loved Marrietta's breakfast!

We were helped with renting bikes, distances to places. Ask them whatever and they answer you with a smile. The rooms were spark clean every time we returned to the guesthouse.
We never felt that we were staying at a hotel. It was soooo reasonable. All the famous beaches, convenience stores and supermarket were close by.
YOU CAN'T GET A BETTER DEAL THAN THIS.

The guesthouse is situated in a narrow residential lane near Calangute Post Office (see picture). It is a very basic accommodation. We were 6 adults and 3 kids and stayed on the first floor which has three bed rooms. Only one has attached Toilet. There is no kitchen but a refrigerator, TV and a dining table. All three rooms have ACs. There is no power back up ..we experienced frequent power cuts in GOA. There are couple of grocery shops nearby, which are very useful for daily needs. Quality of Bed linen and Towels is not great and bed sheets are changed only once in three days as per house rules. There were no appropriate blankets/quilts, which you need if the AC is running whole night.

The distance to Calngute beach is about 20-25 minute walk ( about 2 km). If you would like to take a taxi/auto, you would have to walk to the main road which is about 5 minute walk from the guest house.

They provide complimentary breakfast with tea. However, the breakfast (quantity as well as variety ) is not sufficient. Although in our case they did serve extra and did not charge. Owners are nice and the same is the caretaker boy Sandeep to take care of small needs.

We are really disappointed at being rated so low on cleanliness. We disagree on that count; we are sure of ourselves. Our bed linen and towels are not great? Sir, these are very decent and our tariff is not great either. But issues of quilts, power back-up are under our active consideration. Calangute beach is exactly one km (not 2 km) from our guesthouse. As for breakfast, we also offer coffee if asked. We are much better than many hotels in Calangute that charge higher but offer only slice bread-butter-jam every day. At least you gave us “good value”. For the price we charge, our guesthouse is great value. Thanks for giving us that.
