Guestbook comments from the owner

An excellent and peaceful guesthouse with good sized apartments which are cleaned daily. Wonderful breakfasts served on your balcony by the ever smiling Sami.. Good evening meals were available at a reasonable price and all the staff were delightful. Air conditioning, fans, hot water 24/7 and free wifi. Beautiful location in the countryside just a 10 minute walk to the beach where there is a selection of cafe/restaurants and a few shops. Altogether a very relaxing place to stay which I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms at the front have better views

Goa quiet hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Lovely 10 day visit here for myself and partner. We wanted a quiet holiday and it was really perfect. So many great features including the pool, privacy, the shady balcony, lush tropical garden and Raj's excellent cooking! Being close to the airport with pick-up and drop off was a bonus too! Our unit was simply furnished with a kitchen counter and sink and small bar fridge. It was clean and tidy when we arrived and was cleaned regularly during our stay.

The small cove-like beach is filled with locals - including a few fishermen that we watched bring in their nets in the evening. The little beachfront is full of just enough shops and restaurants that you get the vibe without losing the quaint feel of the place. Full Moon Cafe was particularly good - I think we had dinner there a few times during our visit. When we felt bored, we took day trips to nearby beaches (Colva is particularly good) for a change of pace. That worked well, but mainly, we just enjoyed the quiet solitude and the walk to the beach. One mention - the house dogs are delightful. They came with us on our morning walk and played in the water with us - so well behaved.

We are situated behind the scenes of Bogmalo, where peace and serenity go hand in hand. Our rooms are cozy and comfortable and come with a little slice of Goa, that’ll stay with you even when you leave. So relax and take a break, whether it’s a dip in the Pool, reading in the Garden or having a bite from our kitchen.

If you’re not looking to relax take a pleasant and scenic 10 min walk through the village (Taxi available for roughly a Pound) reaching the Hub of Bogmalo. The Beach!

A small cove 1 km long backed mainly by coconut palms; this makes it one of the safer beaches for swimming with a life guard normally on duty through the day.

Here you can partake in various beach activities, relish in fresh local cuisine and enjoyable nightlife.

We look forward to having you, see you soon!
