Why Chaaya Baradhwaaj chose Calangute
It's a lovely home away from home... a minute from the beach.. unique in its offering in every which way. Always found Calangute-Baga the most easy to leisure around, shop, eat, drink, catch live shows. Never thought we would actually find a property that we could own! I can walk down to shop, i can walk down to the beach till Baga - the stretch takes just 15 minutes, and Calangute centre - just 5 minutes.. and the stretch that's a minute away from this bungalow is the least crowded and most clean stretch across the Calangute Baga beach strip. Had to buy it!

Cozy, charming & centrally located bungalow
We stayed here for 2 nights & 3 days...and felt like staying forever. Joshua’s Beach House is a charming Portuguese bungalow in a great location; only a minute away from the beach and some good eating joints. A walk to the main areas of Calangute took us only about five minutes. A walk down the beach to Baga took us only about 15-20 mins. You cannot get a location any better than this!
As for the bungalow itself, we could not possibly ask for more. Our ground floor bungalow had everything we needed for a perfect holiday. A fully functional kitchenette (microwave, stove top, fridge, utensils, etc.), living room with TV, bedroom with AC & TV, and a bathroom. We were happy to note the presence of CCTV cameras and felt very safe and secure during our stay. The owner and the caretaker made sure we were well looked after. The caretaker was very helpful and was always available. He even set us up with bike rentals and provided us with a set of take away menus from restaurants close by, many of them had home delivery options for free.
We will surely visit again and would love to recommend this place to others especially to groups and families. Joshua’s Beach House is truly a ‘luxurious’ home away from home!
Great place for a big group of friends
I have stayed here two times. The Joshua beach house is between Calangute and Baga close to the main road. You can also walk down to the quieter side of calangute from the house. The place is big and can easily host 10 or more people(we took 4 rooms for 8 people). The surrounding is quiet but is very close to Baga so it's kind of perfect. It has a kitchen and the nice porch area. The caretaker is very helpful as well. I definitely recommend it for any big groups.
Back from a wonderful stay
We booked the entire bungalow for my family and friends. The place is super. Well maintained and clean. The bungalow manager and caretaker were there to assist us on everything. Got food, changed linen, cleaned up the place. The walk down to the beach was great.. just a minute away. We cooked our own breakfast most days, but we also got good south Indian breakfast within 15 minutes of ordering it. Highly recommend for get togethers. When it rained we played cards. Mosquitos are a problem if we sit late evening in patio.. it was the monsoons. But we kept two mortien herbal coils and they were a big boon.. and got the `macchar away'. Viva Goa!
Fantastic experience !
Hi, This was our first trip to Joshua Beach House. The house itself was just beautiful. The room was clean, comfortable and cozy. The location of the house too was very good as it was just a couple of minutes from the beach. The Manger was fantastic,he went out of his way to make our hoilday enjoyable.We just can't wait to go back and will surely recommend my friends and relatives to stay at the Joshua Beach House .Thank you so much.
Thanks for the review Monica, and we are happy you had a wonderful stay!
After the blistering cold back home Goa was a wonderful change, we just love the beach. This was an idea stay for my family of eleven. My two kids, their father, the grand parents, my sister in law, her hubby and her kids, and my brother in law. The two living rooms, plus 2 patios gave us all privacy to group and regroup as we wanted. The separate entrances helped a great bit. The bungalow is neat and clean and the four bathrooms were of great help upstairs. The downstairs bathrooms are outside the bedroom attached with the living room which was a slight inconvenience, but given that the bungalow was so large we all managed very well. The caretaker was very friendly and helpful and the owner ensured she called and made us comfortable. The beach was so close by that we spent a lot of time getting a tan. The kids could wash themselves in the outdoor wash room and did not get the sand inside the rooms. Would recommend this place to large groups and families. The place can easily accomodate upto eighteen we realized and we might have travelled with a few more friends :).
Great place to chill out
This was the perfect place for all us 17 bachelors to reunite after 10 years. Great place, well within everyone's budget. Would be good if we could hire a cook though the caretaker was of great help in getting some homemade crab curry organized for us. We would like more chairs for the sit out next time.. and we plan to meet at your place in 3 years once again! Lets hope it works out and your place is still as good. Advance booking for the crab curry!
About 300 metres to the right of the bungalow is the bustling Calangute-Baga road, which is dotted with all kinds of restaurants (serving up Continental, Chinese, Tibetan, Indian food), shopping outlets and pubs. To left of the bungalow is of course the sea, and the magnificent Calangute beach. Shacks serving lip-smacking food and a variety of beverages are lined up on the beach, and you can also avail of the facilities for adventure sports like para-sailing and water-skiing. From the bungalow the market of Calangute is a brisk 10-minute walk away, and you can purchase all your essential items here from the supermarket. There's also a restaurant and pub that runs 24-hours. A couple of night markets and a flea market are a short drive away (5-6 km).
