Independent, lovely, spacious villa with 4 well-furnished private bedrooms for rent, with lots of space to play outdoor games, and an attached, big swimming pool. Common areas include living room, dining area, kitchen area, library and TV room. Villa accommodates 10 adults comfortably, including the sofa bed in the TV room. We now offer a daily, cleaning service, which is included in your booking cost.

The space

Want to just relax in a typical Goan village? Then this is your place. Enjoy the peace and quiet, away from the rush and crush of a city. Yet, the beach is only 1.8 kms away and South Goa's main city, and the financial capital of Goa, Margao, is about 4.5 kms from the house.

Guest access

Margao railway station is about 8 kms from the house, while the Airport is about 16 kms away.

You can go to the Colva beach (2.4 kms) or the "Gandaulim" beach (about 1.8 kms) from the house. Gandaulim beach is recommended for peace and quiet, while Colva for all the touristy attractions.

There are multiple restaurants on the way to Colva Beach road.

If you would like to cook at home, then there is a small grocery shop around the corner, a mid-sized one about 0.7 kms away and a full fledged one (Sho-Faz) about 1.5 kms away.

Do note that travel is expensive in Goa, unless you have your own car/2-wheeler, you will have to hire local transport.

Interaction with guests

We visit frequently, and generally we are there once every month for a few days. Feel free to ask us any questions about food, travel and places to visit whether we are in the house or away!

In any case, we are only a phone call away. Our friend and neighbour, who lives behind our house, takes care of our house - if you have any questions about directions and food, feel free to ask her, as well.

Other things to note

To reduce our carbon footprint, we have not fitted air-conditioners in our house. However, we have powerful pedestal fans in all the bedrooms, besides ceiling fans, and so you will not feel the heat even in the peak of summers!

Please feel free to use the kitchen - you can certainly cook for yourself. You will have full access to the fridge, microwave, electric hot plate, gas-operated hob and all cooking vessels and cutlery. Please clean up after yourself.

Electricity may go on and off during the evening - it is usually only for a few minutes at a time. You will find two torches in the hall. Pls ensure that you replace the torches back after use. There are also candles and match boxes in the Kitchen, besides a quaint oil burning lamp.

Please note that Goa does not have door-to-door garbage collection services - you have to put your garbage in trash bags (provided in the kitchen) and store in a single place. Please do not make multiple bags to reduce the use of plastic. Once a bag is full, you can tell the maid to clear the bag away, or you can dispose it yourself in a municipal garbage bin. Thank you for your kind co-operation.

Please treat this house with the respect and courtesy that you would your own - it is our house, after all.

Key rules:
1. NO SMOKING ABSOLUTELY anywhere within the house or the compound - guests in violation of this rule have to leave immediately - NO exceptions are made.

2. No loud music or loud partying after 10PM - the neighbours will complain to me.

3. No drinking in the compound or the pool area - if you are consuming alcohol on my property, please remain inside the house or in the balconies or the terrace.

4. No drunken behaviour at any time - guests in violation of this rule will have to leave.

5. Once your reservation is confirmed, we need photo ID proof of *all* guests staying at our place, who are included in your booking. You can email me scan copies of any one of the following documents: Passport, Aadhaar card, PAN Card or Driving Licence (smart card only).

6. Please do not leave the house dirty when you are checking out - we charge a very basic cleaning fee, but any guests who leave the house dirty will be charged extra.

7. We try our best to ensure that all facilities mentioned here are available at all times - but, this is a house, not a hotel and things do break. We try our best to get things fixed immediately once it is reported to us - but everything in Goa takes its own sweet time!

An awesome property with all amenities...Supratim is a good host . he is considerate and actions quickly on the needs of guests. The only thing to note here is that the Property does not have ACs. so be prepared to stay without ACs when you go there.

We just loved the house. Goa itself is a great place, but our stay in this house was icing on the cake. As promised the house was loaded with all the facilities,it was big ,spacious and clean;kitchen was fully equipped,you can cook if you want.The pool was clean and good. The house was near to Colva beach and the market area was also near.In a nutshell,this villa is a great place to live if you visit Goa.

Vacationers in Goa, this is the kinda place you should be staying at! This plush 5 bedroom duplex is exactly as shown in the photos and believe you me, it's comfort central all right! The amenities, furniture, cutlery everything is top notch. There's an entertainment room where you can kick back and watch something on the big screen, a private pool which is just the right size for relaxing as well as some friendly water sports. Located a couple of km from Colva, this place gives you the feeling of serenity and quiet surroundings, but is also close enough to the restaurants and main routes enabling you to reach those in just a few minutes of travel time. I could go on and on, but I'll just end with this, whether you're a family or a group of friends, if you're looking for a comfortable stay down in South Goa with all it's calm and tranquility, look no further. Cheers folks!

Good location, close to Colva beach. You will neeed a transport of your own if you stay here. The house only has 2 bathrooms for 4 bedrooms. If you are a large group, as we were, there is going to be a queue for bathroom/toilet. Drinking water mght have to be collected from a tap in the backyard. There was no water in the water filter. Hot water supply is also an issue as the entire house runs on a single geyser. If both bathrooms are used together, then hot water supply runs out. the care taker is not pleasent to interact with. You are better off calling up Supratim as he responds and helps every time, than asking any question to care taker. We did not find the house properly cleaned.

Response from Supratim:
I am very disappointed with your review, Nitin. It is filled with inaccuracies and complaints due to your own errors. Bathrooms - my listing clearly mentions TWO bathrooms. Did you expect additional ones to suddenly spring up or was that a reading/understanding problem?? We have hosted larger groups than yours, too, without any issues re bathroom. The key point is everything is clearly mentioned. Book after understanding what is on offer. Drinking water - this is an outright lie. We came last night from Mumbai, and the water filter (aquaguard) is working fine. Can post photos to prove it, if you still wish to dispute. Hot water - we have a big storage heater on the terrace, which is good and adequate for two bathrooms. However, if you use showers in both bathrooms simultaneously, you can lose water pressure in the top bathroom, but for a short while. Then the supply adjusts. Not sure what you were doing - only if you run both tap mixers at the max hot water level, there is a chance of hot water running out. You were also whining about no ACs in the house - again, complaining about something that was NOT on offer. Caretaker - she is a senior person, and you were quite rude to her. Just because the sheets were not tucked in perfectly, a la hotel style, you thought stuff was old or not clean. Then, she went above and beyond her duties, with her son trying to get a public restroom for your driver, who was a late addition to your party and whom you didn't want using the house bathroom/toilet. And, she told you about the storage heater line, which you insisted on removing, and then complained to me about not being able to switch on the running hot water. BTW, your driver did not even pay for using the restrooms that were offered by a local place, after using the facilities for three days. Integrity! Piece of unsolicited advice: next time, book a hotel instead of demanding cive star hotel equivalency in Airbnb hosted homes.

We have enjoyed our stay in Supratim's house very much. It is a big and clean house with a nice swimming pool outside, next to the living room. The description of location is very honest and true but it is easy to rent a bike (250-300 rps a day) what makes it easy to go around. Taxis are quite expensive if you are planning to go to north Goa for example. Supratim was reachable at all times and gave us helpful tips. I would recommend this place to others!

The villa is well furnished clean and spacious. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood. The place is a 45 min walk from Colva beach. Perfect for a group of 6-8 people.
