“Charming Seaside Family Guesthouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

A group of friends and I stayed at Oshin's for several weeks during the 2011-12 New Year holiday. We rented one large bungalow equipped with a kitchen/dining area, queen bed, hot water shower, and patio on the ground floor. We also rented a one bedroom room, and a room with two beds. (One and two bed rooms had cold water showers only.)

The rooms were all very clean with fresh linens and complimentary soap, which is above average in India. The property was very pretty with many plants and flowers. It was not in the center of Benaulim (a tiny, sleepy beachside town) which made it the perfect escape because it was quiet, and extremely safe, especially at night. Each room has a patio off of it (some were shared with a neighbor) that included a table and chairs for lounging.

Guests were all friendly-- some staying for an extended time-- and the family was responsive and kind, and even their dog was friendly. Water and beer can be purchased in the "lobby" and you can keep food in the fridge if one is not in your room. There is also a large dining area where you can hang out and order food during certain times of the day.

The only "problem" I experienced was with the kitchen which is NOT equipped. Be prepared to possibly pay extra for gas, and to purchase your own plates, utensils, and other necessities. I believe pots and pans were provided. A refrigerator is also provided.

NOTE: this rating is for Indian standards, and should not be compared to western amenities.

Room Tip: I stayed in three different rooms and was satisfied with each. In general, guests are quiet and frie...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

We came here on 29th March 2012 and stayed there till 1st April 2012. Nice place to stay. Small yet neat & clean and the owner is really helpful. The place is 15 min walk from Maria Hall and also to Benaulim Beach. We loved the peace and silence of this place and enjoyed staying here.
We are again planning for next visit in December this year and I'm sure will stay here only.

Room Tip: Although all the rooms are equally nice but prefer to take with balcony on the front side. The view...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

Stayed here for two weeks in February. Wonderful little place. We had an apartment - basic, but clean and functional, with separate kitchen/diner area, fridge/freezer etc. Bathrooms are rudimentary but do the job. It's down a little road that you wouldn't necessarily think of going down, but if you have scooter or bike (like most do here) then no problem. It's still only a ten minute walk into the village, or 10 minutes the other way down to the beach. Helpful owner, and very reasonable - he even knocked down the rate he'd originally quoted so we ended up paying less than we thought (although it's so cheap it didn't make much difference, but the sentiment was appreciated!). We're going back to Goa in December and will be staying here again for definite.
