Went to this place in November 2013 only to find a real gem hidden in Goa. The place is really secluded from the crowded beaches and hustle and bustle of the city. Hosts Roberto and Raquel are the best hosts a homestay can offer. They took all the trouble to serve us even the smallest of the meals in the rooms, as my mom would not go to the kitchen because of cats. The guest-rooms are big, clean and tastefully decorated with all the antique furniture. We wanted to explore the unconventional side of Goa during this vacation and Roberto helped us plan our itinerary.
They serve authentic, lip-smacking Goan food with so much love that you are bound to put on a few pounds by the time you leave.
If you have a sweet tooth, do request Raquel for some cakes. She makes them real nice. Also, chicken xacuti is a must try for the non-veg lovers.
All in all, we loved every single moment during our stay at this place. Looking forward to our next visit.
