Great location. The ceiling fans and AC in each bedroom are such a relief. Also ceiling fans on the veranda. The onsite Caretaker Santosh was very helpful, cleaned the chalet, took us on his moped if we needed to go anywhere. His Family are also lovely and made nice breakfasts. There are plenty of nice restaurants nearby. The ones on the beach are more expensive than the ones on the high street.
6 of us stayed here for 15 nights in February 2018. Wonderful location on the beach and in the best part of Candolim, whilst any part of Candolim is within easy reach including several fabulous restaurants. Santosh and family gave us plenty of space but were always on hand to help us with anything. Karl, the owner, dealt with our booking efficiently and courteously, and checked-in on us during in our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again.
Just returned from 2 weeks staying at the Chalet Balnear that my wife booked for ourselves and 2 other couples and what a treat and wouldn't stop in a hotel after stopping here.
Lovely compact Chalet next to the beach in the quiter area of Siquirem only approx 10-15 mins walk to the main area of Candolim with several good restaruants within 5mins.
The Chalet is a wonderful location for a holiday with 3 reasonably sized bedrooms though basic they are comfortable and clean - Santosh the caretaker is great and could not do enough for us from recommending places to eat to running around to get those little things we had forgotten or required.
It was better than the pics shown at TripAdvisor. A beautiful villa with mesmerising view and a soul of its own..a house with big verandah overlooking sea, ample resting and recreation space amidst coconut trees, 30 seconds from beach, 5 min walk from heart of candolim..with all this we could not have asked for more..Karl,the owner,was constantly in touch with us throughout to help whenever needed..Santosh, the care taker, was very helpful with our requirements and the breakfast, prepared by Santos's mom I believe, was delicious. We were there for 7 nights and nobody was happy at the time of checkout. Jason, my beagle, was extremely happy and still nods his head when we ask him whether he will come to the Goa home again..We are surely coming back sometime soon.
If peace, sitting endlessly overlooking sea and to be able to access beach in no time is what u r looking at, than your search ends right here.
Great location, we were two adult couples with partners who just loved the 10 metre stroll to the Beach !
Great communication, bargain cost and a really friendly House Boy Santos....thank you all for a fabulous week
We were looking for accommodations on the beach for our family trip, and Chalet Balnear was just perfect! The location is stunning, with beach view right from the veranda. Nice fresh rooms, kitchen with basic cookware and clean bathrooms. The caretaker lives next door and helped us with everything right from bike rental, cabs, bookings, food, etc. The owner Karl is super friendly and responds immediately to any queries, most of the times even before I ask them.
The only issue we had, really nit picking here, is not enough storage space (no wardrobes). But that is a minor inconvenience for such a fabulous place.
All in all, would highly recommend it and look forward to staying there again in the future!
I stayed in chalet Balnear with my family for six days...and its was awesome vacation.. this villa is located exactly on beach, just step out from villa walk 100 foot step and u r in beach..u can hear sound of splashing sea waves in ur bedroom too..very less and decent crowd on beach, perfect for family and group.. villa has three rooms with two washroom kitchen with full amenities.. the best thing is the owner of villa Mr Pinto always in contact with for any kind of help and care taker specially Mother of santosh is a extremely helpful and wonderful lady.. I recommend this property for thise who looking a peaceful stay away from noise and party culture.
Definitely we will choose this property for our next stay in goa.
