Goa evokes luxury amenities in nascent minds and a whiff of exotic smoke in others. The place has been a haven for pleasure-seekers ever since Vasco Da Gama cruised in and placed it on global map. However, one thing needs to be addressed to all who plan their trip in its shores : Goa is not exactly economic. It can really burn a fidgety hole in your wallet if you nonchalantly book a standout hotel. And if you settle for budget accommodation, you will miss the exact fare that Goa has on offer.
The best way forward is to check in where you will get accommodation supplemented by a host of facilities to automatically trim your costs. This should naturally not compromise your stay in any sense. We understand the importance of that perception and have accordingly created an oasis in your desert of anxieties; by way of our holiday homes at Goa.
In essence, our cluster of holiday homes is structured in protected enclosures; each apartment being a convenient 700 square feet. We are based in a nature-touched domain near Zalor Beach in Carmona, South Goa. The seclusion you will encounter here is almost a suspension of disbelief, considering the rampant fuss that Goa is becoming.
A classic definition of a privileged holiday is ‘Wood (shelter), some food and singlehood’. We completely stand by the axiomatic standard and grant you your cherished space in the coziness of our well-crafted holiday homes. Although isolated from the general rush, the space is easily reachable from Cavelossim in south Goa and quite close to Margao as well.
Just to cosset you a little more, we bring in a string of facilities literally at your doorsteps or within it. Apart from the towels, linens and serviette, there is fulsome arrangement for hot or cold water bath. You can write your dream story on our snug double beds. We spare an entire cooking range for the chef in your family, just to give a homely touch to the proceedings.
House-keeping takes care of daily necessities and we don’t miss out on generals like laundry and dining etiquette. Air conditioners and fans are placed to keep you cool when the weather gets intense. If you like your liquor and dig some privileged cuisines, you will find our Poolside Multi Cuisine Restaurant and Bar quite formidable.
The holiday homes are a measly 500 meters away from Zalor Beach that dazzles with white sands. You can try out your butterfly strokes without a moment’s worry, as the entire zone is overseen by emphatic coast guard personnel. On a personal front, your own apartment gathers round the clock security. We offer you a garden for the little games that children indulge in.
We understand that however convenient the indoor facilities may be, you will be itchy to test the surrounding areas. We offer you services replete with travel assistance and taxis on call. The adventurous lot can hire bikes and blaze a trail. We arrange a qualitative tour of North and South Goa for your sake. If you want a more personal tour, you can reserve a chauffeur-driven car and coast through those areas that suit your taste. There are ample parking facilities, in case you bring your own vehicle.
We organize graded sight-seeing tours for you and your family. You will cherish the boat trips, visualizing Goa from the other side. Once you visit other beaches and encounter noisome areas, you will appreciate the quietude offered at our holiday homes even more. Those who love to carry their shopping bags will get their fill in Margao and even on beachfronts.
Most people have a special place reserved for Goa in their hearts and we make it a point that that regard remains. We venture to make your accommodation at Goa a quiescent, privileged and fabulous pot of chiseled memories(URL HIDDEN)
Just book your holiday home and look forward to having special time in South Goa!
Please read these rules carefully before booking. Every rental agreement is subject to these rules, as well as rules posted in individual homes; violations can result in additional charges or termination of the booking.

You will need to call the office the day before to make this arrangement since a last minute booking for your check-in / check-out day will preclude an early check-in or late check-out.
Half-day Add-On : We may be able to offer a 7:00 p.m. checkout for some bookings, for a minimum fee of half the nightly rent; This half-day booking can be arranged in advance and must be confirmed in writing and cannot be cancelled once it is confirmed, since it precludes a same day booking.
Additional Day : If you have requested an additional night, we will try to accommodate your request. However, if the unit is already booked, you must evacuate the premises at the 11:00 a.m. check-out. Failure to do so will result in an additional full night rent charge and the removal of your belongings to a storage area in the premises outside of the unit.
You can book online or by calling the office. On finalizing your travel plan and accommodation dates, we will furnish our bank details to which you can transfer the mandated amount to conform the booking.

For cancellations made 30 days or less prior to arrival, bookings are refundable only to the extent we are able to secure a replacement booking. Although we generally do re-book given a reasonable amount of time, there is no guarantee that we will.

•Please leave the home in good condition. We request you not to move the furniture during your stay; if you do, please replace it.
9. Noise: Our houses are located next to each other in predominately residential gated complex. We ask that you respect the tranquility of the community.

Please be respectful of the neighbors and other guests in the building.

14. Commercial Use: Commercial use of our properties is strictly forbidden without a contract for the specific use.
15. Rental of More than One Residence: If you rent units in close proximity to one another, the following rules apply:
•No items will be moved from one unit to another.
•Guests moving between the units will respect the quiet of the neighborhood and refrain from loud noise and boisterous behavior on the street, particularly at night. Neighbors treasure their peace and quiet, they value access to their driveways, and they are quick to complain if our guests create problems in either area.
16. Rental Residence Unavailable: On rare occasions, a house subject to a rental agreement may become unavailable due to various circumstances. Generally this will happen when a house sustains significant damage or a major appliance or utility is out of order (heating unit, refrigerator, etc.). In this unfortunate event, we reserve the right to offer to move your booking to the most comparable home available or issue a complete refund. If you opt for a replacement home that is more expensive, you will need to pay for the upgrade. We will not be liable for any collateral expenses or emotional harm due to the unavailability of a home.
17. Parking: Most residences have only street parking available. If off-street parking or garage parking is available, it will be listed in the description of the unit.
18. Lost Keys/Lockbox Trouble Guests are responsible for lost keys. Guests will be billed for locksmith fees or management fees at INR 150 / hour to remedy the problem. Guests are advised to keep the unit keys safely at all times to avoid any inconvenience.

Management has the right to cancel reservations not adhering to this policy. Weekly rate is applicable for stays of one week or more. Please contact us if your reservation is rejected, we make every effort to try and accommodate your request
Currently we have no homes that are fully wheelchair accessible. We do have homes that are fairly level-in, but none have ramps and most of the bathrooms and bedrooms are too small for a wheelchair to maneuver easily. Our staff is not able to determine whether a particular home would be suitable enough for a guest in a wheelchair and we urge you to visit homes in advance to make this determination. We cannot give refunds or generally move you to another house because of this issue. This is an issue we would like to be able to address better in the future, but currently we are not in a position to make representations about wheelchair accessibility.
