“An almost 5 Star Vacation Rental”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014 for a stay in December 2013

people found this review helpful

We got to stay at both Chimes 1 (1st Floor) and Chimes 2 (3rd Floor) and must say that both apartments are well maintained and equipped with all modern needs that one would require during a vacation. Chimes 2 has a better apartment plan and appears bigger in comparison with Chimes 1. Quick summary below:

Ayes (and a lot of them):

1. The apartment oozes of a very classy and upmarket feeling and is equipped with branded, good quality fittings and fixtures.

2. The location is impeccable, just half a mile from the peaceful Candolim beach and more peaceful Sinquerim beach.

3. All kinds of eateries and nightlife places in the vicinity.

4. The maid is soft spoken, very helpful and efficient. Got the broken shower fixed in a lightening.

5. Ritu provided contacts of very reasonably priced taxi and bike rental providers – so you don’t have to break your head looking for one. She also drew a good itinerary for us.

Noes (if one were to nitpick):

1. The water pressure in Chimes 2, coz its on 3rd floor, is rather dismal and you wont be able to have a nice shower after soaking yourself in the sea.

2. The time I used the swimming, it was full of broken wings of dead insects.

3. The fact that owner stays away and the only people you meet are the outsourced service providers somehow don’t provide you that feel of hospitality or personal touch.

4. It would be great if a 5 litre drinking water bottle is provided in the apartment per day – even on chargeable basis. You don’t want to climb down 3 stories and then drive to get your water bottle replaced.

5. The Tata Sky seems to have the very basic pack – I switched it on to watch Kofee with Karan on Sunday but No Star World, then flipped to watch the India South Africa Test Match – and no Ten Sports. An upgrade wont cost Rs. 100 a month but would add great value.

Bottom-line, a great place to stay for the price it offers (we were offered 3500 per day from Dec 21 to Dec 25 – at the peak of peak seasons.

“clean, spacious, and well maintained”

person found this review helpful

We booked 'The chimes' after surveys through the Tripadvisor and stayed there from 06- 12 jan 2014. The booking was handled professionally by Ms Ritu, the manager, and her interest in ensuring that all aspects of our trip were taken care of was charming, to say the least. she arranged for our pickup at the airport, pointed out the good eating places in Candolim and was keen enough to help us make our daily travel plans.
the linen, furnishings and the bathroom was top class. we used the washing machine twice during our stay and it was a great help. The cleaning lady came daily and if any small matter needed to be looked into it was done at the earliest.
In fact, due to an error in calculating the dates of booking and journeys, we had to spend a day more in another place nearby and it was then that we realised how good the facilities at 'the Chimes' were. We never felt cramped or shortchanged there.
Candolim is not as loud as the Baga-calangute strip,nor so sleepy like Varca & south goa. It is active in the daytime and laid back at night with all the occidentals filling up all the watering holes in smart casuals. You see very few Indians, esp on weekday, so be warned it can be a bit surreal.
Cons- for a place as small as Candolim it is just a bit further from the beach than the rest of the options available. It took us an ambling 8 mins to reach the beach. to put things in perspective, it takes 15 mins to walk from security to the farthest gates on the Delhi's T3 terminal.

We stayed at the Chimes for 8 days during the ultra peak season, and will rate it as one of our most memorable holidays. The apartment has a pleasing Fabindia-esque decor, and is comfortable for a family of four. The apartment is just as it appears in the pictures. The gadgets (washing machine, air conditioners, tv, geyser, microwave, etc) were in top working condition. The cleaning lady came once a day to do the dishes and the cleaning/mopping (but does not make the beds or do the dusting), and was pretty accommodating about her schedule. Ritu was very warm and helpful, and was always available on the phone to provide us tips on eating places, etc. and her recommendations were spot-on. Essentially, the Chimes is a place where you can spruce up a simple breakfast before you hit the beach or the numerous eateries for lunch and dinner. Its location away from the beach (10 minutes walk during the crazy supersonic, sunburn, christmas and new year rush) is actually a boon to help work up an appetite or to feel less guilty after all the binging. Only one drawback, though power outages are not frequent or too long, there may be times one has to wait for half an hour to make a cup of tea. All in all, the Chimes is a perfect holiday home; and Candolim is the place to be in when in Goa. Baga, Anjuna and Calangute are a complete waste of time (unless you want to hear Punjabi music blaring from the shacks); and the South Goa resorts do not help you experience the buzz of Goa.

Thanks a lot for your appreciation Anju! There must have some confusion regarding the cleaning lady not doing up the beds and dusting, infact it is a part of her job and most of the guests have praised her a lot for her work. We really value your feedback and shall look forward to your visit again!

“Great Place and Location”

We were there at Chimes this December and we enjoyed our stay here very much. Its excellently located with all the fine eating joints/stores at Candolim at a walkable distance, but yet serene and calm when you enter the apartment. The apartment is very well maintained and clean with a very clean simming pool..though we hardly used it :-).
The rooms have been very well designed to get a very comfy feeling adding to your vacation mood.
Ritu and staff made things a lot more easier and its definitely something I can recommend for couples or family. Thanks Ritu for having us.
Ritu - As a possible suggestion from my side, availibility of a WiFi connection can add to the already great experience at Chimes.
We will look forward to be back next time!!!

We had an awesome experience at The Chimes. Apart from getting a tastefully done apartment you get a peaceful location which is nearby to some of the best eating joints in South Goa. We had a toddler in tow and she had an awesome time as she had space to move around instead of feeling cramped in a hotel room. Perfect place to enjoy the Goa monsoons!!
