“Our first experience of self catering in Goa”

After staying at most of the fine hotels in South Goa, we decided to go self catering this year. We saw the property on trip advisor and the booking was handled very efficiently.

We arrived in Goa early morning, and were met by Carrie (the housekeeper) at the villa with a welcome package which was a nice touch and thoughtful. Especially welcome was the provision of a local mobile phone, which we topped up with credit, and meant we could get in touch with friends in Goa without the fuss of arranging a local Sim, which can be a time-consuming process.

The villa itself is very nice and part of a pleasant,peaceful and well maintained development interspersed with a small number of local residents living in traditional Portuguese houses, giving a sense of community.

The living/dining room is tastefully decorated and pleasant to relax in. Sky TV is provided, but you may need to arrange for additional channels at extra cost,with the housekeeper. The kitchen is well appointed with all the mod cons.

Each of the two double bedrooms were simply but nicely furnished and have an en-suite with a shower, which is very handy.

April can be very hot and humid but thanks to the AC in the living/dining room and bedrooms, we kept cool!

The development has a swimming pool for the exclusive use of residents, which is a nice size and clean. In our experience it was lightly used.

One of the nice aspects of the development is that passing trade comes through so you can buy fresh bread, fish and ice cream from your doorstep! There are also a couple of good local restaurants and shops within a short walking distance.

Getting to the beach is very convenient by taxi - just 5 minutes ride. Not feeling energetic enough, we never attempted to do the 20/30 minute walk!

If you are feeling adventurous, getting around by local bus transport is also very convenient. Although not formally marked, the bus stops pretty much outside the development, offering easy access to Colva town and to Margao.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Danika residency and the freedom of choice self catering offers. We did not miss our hotel rooms, and so we plan to return again!

The house is part of a little community unit of 1 longish, no through road. There is on site security and a large pool which no one seemed to use. Adjoining attached properties have many local resident occupants and the community spirit was a plus.
This house has been recently re painted and has good air con in both bedrooms and lounge. The sat TV was not in English but the house keeper , a local lady, within 4 hrs of asking arranged several English program's including a couple of film Chanels (HBO and star) to mention 2.
Some issues with 1 shower down and 1 toilet down but we simply used the other of each. Some dog noise but to be fair it would be hard to find anywhere around that at some stage didn,t have that. It did not seriously detract from peace and quite.
There is a safe to use and use of mobile house phone which with 200 rupees credit we paid for ,gave 3 calls of about 6 mins in total and 11 txts to UK. Good value and a nice touch. You can get local scooters , twist and go Hondas at about 25o rupees a day which are ideal to get to the beaches which are a good 30 mins walk away at speed !
