This Villa has some awesome reviews on Air Bnb. And we booked it with a great expectations and we were not at all disappointed. Great and courteous staff always eager to help you. Centrally located Baga Calangute Arpora all 5 mins from villa. Hugely spacious with lot of indoor games like darts chess carrom etc. Well maintained property with clean pool which was private for only us luckily. The food served is fresh and great stand out was there sandwiches and Goan cuisines.
Sheesha is kept too we did tried and it was a great experience. All rooms comes with ensuite bathroom that too with tubs. The balconies are huge . Big living room with dining for almost 10 people. Over all 5 star stay . Definitely coming back again.
Thanks Pritesh for this awesome place.
Villa accomodates 12 people with 4 bed rooms(for 8 people), there's no extra pillow and mattress for the remaining 4 people.
Highly over-priced breakfast & lunch provided at the villa . It is not a private pool , the property has a couple of villa with one pool in common.
In terms of cleaning issue , the rooms were never cleaned ( they say cleaning is done on regular basis). Bed sheets were never changed in our entire 3 day stay neither the washrooms were sanitized for the entire stay.
The swimming pool remained covered with flies ( due to monsoon season) for two days , which was not cleaned , the villa is filled with ants & cockroaches all around , even on beds.
There's no one to look after your problems , you'll keep on complaining , they'll hardly bother to solve your problem.
Above all this , the host - Pritesh is quite helpful , try his other properties in goa , but definitely a big zero for galaxia holiday home , interms of the services provided by the staff.
Pathetic pathetic service. We were told the rooms will be cleaned daily in the morning. In our 3 day stay, it was cleaned only once. In a room where we were allotted 3 people in one room, only 2 cushions and 2 blankets. Even though we asked for it, they didn't give us. Coming to the rooms, they were good and spacious. Bathrooms:pathetic! 2 bathrooms had bath tubs and the other 2 didn't have. The rooms with bathtubs had flush problems i.e. The flushes didn't work and they didn't even get it working even after they were told about it to repair them. Coming to kitchen, I don't know what is the problem with the housekeeper who even cleans cooks the food has so much attitude. He didn't even let us enter the kitchen enter even once even though it was specified that we can cook our food on our own. The food rates charged by the housekeeper are skyhigh. They didn't mention that water is chargeable and in the end we had to even pay for the water bottles. Coming to the pool, only once in 3 days the pool was cleaned and the other 2 days there were insects in the pool. The pool is NOT A PRIVATE POOL! There are two villas and in between is the pool. So if someone else books other villa during your stay time, you have to share the pool with other unknown people. Coming to the internet, the wifi worked only on the first day, the next day it rained and it stopped working. While we were leaving , the next guests were going to arrive, so the owner immediately called the wifi person and got it fixed and we didn't get any wifi for the rest 2 days. Coming to the uncleaned sheets which were not changed even once and there were ants on the beds in 2 rooms and we had to sleep on such beds with ants on them!
I strongly urge people not to book the villa because it's cheap. They will loot you through the services they provide! Serious hatred developed for personal villas after a stay in this villa! The owner has written tons of good things about the villa of which most of them are false and unreal!
Be scared while booking this ghost villa which will haunt you after you return home and during the stay as well!
The location was amazing. Great parking space for our both traveller. Near to every thing in North Goa. Apt for large groups of 15 to 20 people. Great Family Friendly Holiday Home with a clean and clear private pool all for us. The Host/ Owner Pritesh allowed our Dogs to stay and his caretakers were very polite and friendly with all of us and they were very attentive to our kids specially. The Butler was too good his food was yummy and he took care of all our needs. He would even get up in night to warm milk for my cute little nephew. Nice gesture god bless you all. I would suggest them to please have more sun beds and a swing in the property or a hammock. A dedicated fridge for us to stock our Coronas would be a welcoming investment for the host. In all a memorable stay. We are surely coming back and will spend more time in this property.
Host Pritesh was so hospitable and thoughtful. He arranged for the driver to pick all of us from the airport. It was more of business trip in Goa for me and a urgent one so the notice was not too much for the host. It started on a great note as his communications was excellent, he always answered my texts and calls. His team called us to ensure we are booked and confirmed. This was my first experience with this vacation rental and I feel spoiled ! The rooms was very neat and clean, they were hugely spacious. I would suggest Pritesh to fill them up more with some artefacts and some themed paintings and some more of furniture. There were towels and fresh linens & splash in the private pool topped it all. Area is close by to all attractions & activities you can possibly do in Goa. Beaches, Restaurant, Clubs & Markets. In all a great experience. I am surely coming in with my family next time.
Thank you for truly wonderful experience in Goa we enjoyed your stay !
The Villa is nearby main beaches lile Candolim, Calangute , Vegator etc and yet dar from the crowded streets. The staff here is well trained and polite. I am sure you all would want to eat out most of the time when i. Goa, but just when you miss the home cooked food, call for the chicken made by the chef here.
The Villa is well maintained, clran, hygenic and all the things that you are looking for.
There are many such Villas in Goa, but these guys are here to stay.
The vacation rental idea of my all girl's group was actually a bit sceptical earlier. But then though a home Stay app we chose the property big enough to host all 12 of us. It started on a great note as host Pritesh communications was excellent, He helped us out with a great deal and chose his listing, even after the booking was made he always answered my texts and calls. His team called us to ensure we are booked and confirmed. This was my first experience with Home Stay and I feel spoiled. The rooms was very neat and clean, they were hugely spacious. I would suggest Host to fill them up more with some artefacts and some themed paintings and some more of furniture.
The butler of the property fed all of us with Heavenly fires Sandwiches and the best was his Homely Food in Dinner; A treasure in Goa for us North Indians . There were clean towels and fresh linens & splash in the private pool topped it all. Area is close by to all attractions & activities you can possibly do in Goa. The caretaker helped us with rented scooteis and our gang was on to explore the Flee Market of Arpora "The Saturday Night Market", Beaches, Restaurant, Clubs & Markets. In all a great experience. I am surely coming back with my family next time.
Thank you for truly wonderful experience in Goa we enjoyed your stay !
