Calangute is Goa's flagship beach and it plays an irreplaceable role in the state's tourism sweepstakes. Stretching over an expanse of seven kilometres, Calangute beach is known by the sobriquet the 'Queen of Beaches' for its pre-eminence among the scenic beaches that dot the Goan landscape. Due to its extreme popularity, Calangute beach beckons tourists and backpackers from all over the world and can be quite busy at times especially peak season. Wherever you stay in Calangute you are not more than a few minutes walk away from good quality restaurants that sell affordable and great value food to tempt all. All Indian, Chinese and Europeans foods are generally catered for. Calangute beach offers an opportunity to enjoy great time with involvement in the water sport activities—surfing, water skiing and parasailing amongst others. Beach shacks are dotted all over Calangute beach offering refreshing drinks and good food, evening entertainment and night BBQs are available on the beach after dark. Calangute is the perfect tourist haven, completed with shacks and stalls under the shade of palm trees selling everything from fried prawns and beer, to trinkets made of seashells. Calangute's nightlife is surprisingly tame and provides a nice break from the wild parties at Anjuna. All but a handful of the bars wind up by 10.00 pm. One notable exception is Tito's at the Baga end of the beach, which stays open until after midnight in the off-season and into the small hours of the morning in late December and January. The river at Baga locates Mackie’s Saturday Night Bazaar. The Wednesday flea market at Anjuna Beach and the Saturday night market at Arpora are both close by as well, and will satisfy even the best shopaholics.

Lovely, clean and spacious apartment in a safe resort area with swimming pool and bar/food. Walking distance to the beach and friendly, reliable taxi drivers outside the apartment to show you around at a reasonable price. Slight problem with the internet which was resolved within a day or two and the water in 3 of the blocks were on and off for two days. During both these problems, Sarah was always on hand to help and advise.

I stayed for 5 days at the CBD Room No. 602 with my wife and we had an excellent stay there. The apartment is fairly well equipped. Even though the toaster was not working, as soon as we brought it to the owners notice it had been replaced with a new one. The apartment is right in the heart of Calangute, hence not much travelling required to any of the major attractions at Goa and the beaches are relatively close by.
The place is located perfectly, its very near to calangute beach- 5 minute walk. The property, part of an apartment complex, is exactly like the pictures and is perfect for 2-3 people. The property was very clean and tidy. Sarah was very helpful, her experience in handling multiple properties in Goa was definitely visible. We had a small issue with our lock/key and Sarah was very forthcoming in helping us out. I would definitely recommend this place.
I liked the place, it was just like being at my own apartment. Everything was in place, we had no issues at all. Sarah was available at just one call. The time we went there was very busy but still she managed to pull out well.
Specially loved the pool near to apartment so their are two pools and our was much more quieter (which was good). Overall thumbs up.. Will surely recommend.
Sarah was very kind to let us in much before the Check In time. The place was very well kept and comforting. We enjoyed our stay with Abra Casa Goa
Sarah was amazing! She arranged a taxi to come pick us up at the bus station and then met us at the front of the building as soon as we arrived. The apartment is super cute and very clean. It's also only just a few minutes walk to the market and the beach.
Loved staying there and would definitely stay there again!
Thank you Sarah!
