The exquisite beauty of the Calangute beach in India's Goa soon spread around, bringing hordes of European tourists. And this trend has still been continuing…tourists come down to this small Indian state of Goa searching for this lovely beach. Once you reach Calangute beach in Goa, then you can spend your vacation soaked in the serenity of the sea, sun and sand. Goa Calangute beach is often crowded with people, children making sand castles, colorful crowds surging towards the sea, hippies busy remembering the good old times and the young and old alike lazing on the golden sands.

Goa is always a fabulous place to visit for its revelry and friendliness and Joe and Marrietta's place just makes the experience so much better. We were two girls travelling alone and due to some unforeseen circumstances there were a few changes in our travelling plans. Marrietta was absolutely understanding about it and she went out of her way to make sure we had a good time. Joe was a saviour with his map-drawing directions and helping us with cabs and other such essentials.
About the place in itself, it is very quaint and lovely neighbourhood and the best part about it was it was walking distance (15mins if you are a slow walker) to Calangute beach. The room was immaculate in its cleaniness and was quite airy. The only problem we had was the room didn't have a lot of charging points and with our laptops and phones and tabs, it was quite difficult. Otherwise a great place and amazing hosts. And a shout out to their dog who at first menacing is actually quite cute.
Thank you for making our trip so comfortable.
I went to goa first as a gentle introduction to india and joe and Marietta introduced me to a gentle india
Joe and Marietta were pleasant hosts. Though we had limited interaction, I have no complaints with them. Also I think, they can make some arrangement for pressing the guests' clothes.
Joe & Marietta and their sons were really nice and always helpful. We had a few awesome days there, not only because of them but also due to the nice village and the beautiful beach and nature. The guesthouse is not far from the main road, but the surrounding is really quiet and nice. Thanks a lot again! :)
Hey Yannic, Thanks for the kind words. We appreciate your fine sentiments. Hope we can host you again or at least meet you someday. Say hello to Beate. We are trying to fix the wi-fi and so far, called two technicians. Both did not turn up after promising. Guess I may have to fix it myself. But we will fix it at the earliest. Regards, Joe and Marietta

I booked Jackfruit through Airbnb. It was a very pleasant stay. I booked single A/c bedroom . Room was neat and clean,,,,,,, more than i expected. Bathroom had continuous hot water supply.
Complementary Tea and wonderful breakfast, a perfect way to start our day.
Me and my friend enjoyed our stay at Jackfruit.

Joe and Marietta are wonderful hosts.
