“Why Stay Elsewhere?”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

While we were at Heaven Goa recently (6 days) as a quite senior couple we thought it was wonderful.

It was not until our return to Melbourne, Australia, returning to our suburban house which is surrounded by other houses and we looked at our Heaven Goa photos that we realised how perfect Heaven Goa is.

Wetlands in front, jungle to the side, barely another building to be seen, giving a beautiful sense of rural green remoteness.

Breakfast, the best Masala omlettes and brewed coffe down in the rotunda by the swimming pool, where we socialised with the other guests, as well as the charming owners Sunil and Karen.

Remote - no, a stunning beach a short walk away or an even shorter bike ride away, and the Village of Benaulim an even shorter walk or bike ride away.

Karen and Sunil have laboured long and hard over numbers of years to create something very special and they are to be commended on what the have achieved.

Do we recommend? Our answer is a ver positive and emphatic YES.

Dear Guests
Thank you so much for this report. We are so lucky to have so nice guests staying with us.
In the meantime we have a very nice cook and a junior cook working for us. As soon as everything is more green with plants, we will finally have the Heaven Goa we always wanted.
Kind regards
Karin

We spent twelve nights here are still were not ready to leave. The rooms are clean, spacious, well appointed, and great value for money. The owners, who are true animal lovers, are extremely friendly and willing to help in any way. The beach, which is about a ten minute walk away, is long and lovely. We are already planning a return trip to Heaven Goa.

Dear Guest
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Heaven Goa and that you liked our rooms. As we know that most guests are used to have soft mattresses we had them made a bit thicker. We are glad that you liked it.

We wanted a quiet romantic getaway in South Goa. Heaven Goa had such great reviews we chose it. We arrived from the train at 3am in the rain. Sunil, one-half of the husband & wife duo that own and run this charming guesthouse, greeted us immediately ushering us to our room. When I got in the shower, tired and sweaty from the train ride, I knew I truly was in heaven when the water coming out of the shower head was hot! The mattress was even soft (for Indian standards). The next morning we met Karen, the other half, who greeted us and tended to our coffee and breakfast needs. Suma, the housekeeper and cook, served us wonderful coffee, fresh fruit and eggs. They have pets who will also eat with you, so anyone who isn't a pet person may be surprised...but anyone else who has traveled India knows this is common practice. That was even heaven for me to be around such well cared for healthy animals while in India. Sunil and Karen attended to our every need while staying at Heaven Goa. They arranged a scooter rental for us, which was a cheap and easy way to explore the surrounding beaches and towns - Colva became one of our favorites. Karen gave us a map on our 2nd day and told us to check out a Spice Farm, and this ended up being one a trip highlight. Heaven Goa is a serene guesthouse that fit our need for relaxation perfectly. We can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Take a balcony room facing the Arabian Sea. In the mornings and evenings you can sit out and watch t...

We loved it so much, that we extended our stay by 4 nights. Karin and Sunil really made us feel welcome and at home. The room was great (we tried both: AC and Non AC). Both were spacious and very clean with mosquito nets and attached bathroom. The view from the balcony was wonderful! We loved to hang out there, reading books and chatting.
The beach is a 15 minute walk away, but we have rented a scooter and this was perfect to reach the little town and the beach.
If it would have been possible, we would have stayed even longer!
Thanks again for everything! Hopefully we will be able to come back one day!

We booked this place based on the reviews and it has become our favorite place we have stayed in the one month of travels and many guesthouses! It is in this very lovely village about a 10 minute gorgeous walk to the beach. And the guest rooms are impeccable and have amazing views all the way to the ocean, although in the distance but just gorgeous! But the couple who run this guesthouse make it by far a 10 for us, they are gracious and laid back always there to help! Karin is from Switzerland and Sunil is from India and what a place they have developed here! Do not stay right on the beach in this area unless you want touristy unclean resorts. Do yourself a favor and book at Heaven guest house you will not regret it. My only suggestion for the owners is to eventually make the wifi to all the rooms or at least the common kitchen area, they have free wifi but have to go to the other side of the property. By the way they have a kitchen area that they let us use that had everything you would need to make your own meal, we are raw vegans and this was a dream come true for us traveling I India! Finally able to
Make our own smoothies and juices! Thanks for everything Karin and Sunil !

We were a group of 5 friends and stayed at Heaven Goa in the first week of October 2013. Karin was extremely charming right from our first interaction. We had once cancelled our stay earlier at the last moment and Karin did not charge anything from us then. This time, I told her that we will transfer our money before coming in so that just in case we cancel again, it is not uncomfortable to owners. But Karin said this was again not required. I have not found an attitude like this at any other place in India. May be this was off season, but still such kind attitude is really impressive.
Once you enter the guesthouse, Sunil is always there to assist you in anything you need. It rained heavily the day we arrived and Sunil took some of us in his car to supermarket nearby as we had to purchase few things.
The rooms are pretty clean and way above average for any guesthouse and the bathroom is huge. It gives a nice comfort feeling when you stay.
The beach itself is very beautiful and nice 10-15 min walk from the guesthouse. Moreover, this place also has close proximity to nearby village centre and you get a village life feel while staying here. Easily the best stay of all places I have stayed in Goa till now. 5 stars to Karin and Sunil. Keep it up folks.

Room Tip: AC rooms are slightly bigger and do not face the fields. Request for a room on first floor.
