I stayed at this place from 18th Sept to 23rd Sept.
To begin with, the place is 1.8 Kms and not 500 mtrs from Calangute beach as claimed in the listing. From the pics, it appears to be an apt with a separate sitting room, however, all it has is a bedroom and a kitchen cum dining with a 2 seater sofa.
The geyser wasn't working and was taken for repair on 3rd day of our stay and was not installed during our stay. The overhead shower wasn't working either and the entire panel displayed is of little use as the holes are all choked and water keeps leaking down.
In 5 days, housekeeping came only twice to clean the room and that too after repeated reminders.
We also faced a security breach as someone tried to enter the room through the window at 5 in the morning, the window lock wasn't working and there are no grills, surprisingly, only in this apartment in the entire lot.
The swimming pool was fairly clean, however, very small and better be called a splash pool.
There is extra bedding, however, they were having a foul smell due to moisture and were not in useable state. Even though host allows additional guests, I recommend to confirm with them regarding the extra bedding's condition if more than 2 people plan to travel.
Kitchen needs some more cooking utensils, our plan to cook at least 1 meal could not be executed due to lack of cookware. The microwave plate isn't rotating and it appeared that it's a bit bigger which was causing the problem. Electric kettle must either be removed or replaced, no sane person would dare to boil water for tea in that. Induction Plate and Fridge worked fine.
All in all, an average place mainly due to distance from the beach, the facilities and service.
Though the host was very responsive to my calls, she was unable to do much to resolve my issues as she was based at Mumbai.
Its the place just we wanted...peafula nd comfortable
