Make no mistake... this is a no star accomodation with plush surroundings and fab cuisine. This is a no-frills, budget accomodation. But if you are the kind who like me prefers to wake up to the chirping of birds and would rather look out at swaying palms and frolicking pigs rather than manicured lawns and plastic pools.... then this is the place to be. The place is quintessentially Goan - easy going and laid back. There are a few rough edges for sure, but the warmth of Hillary and Ivy, and the location more than makes up for it. Of course, being a seasoned backpackers helps, as we rarely depend upon my hosts for our basic necessities. Their culinary offerings can do with some enthusiasm though. We were given ample hints by the hosts to try the food in the surrounding eateries and the beach shacks. Better to be safe than sorry!
