Usually use to stay in 5 star hotels but this time decided to try Airbnb and zeroed in Casa Mia Apartment 1 i was still not confident if i will be getting a same experience as i use to get in 5 star hotels .
Staying in Casa Mia apartment was a different experience it was like Home away home you get the service what they offer .
Airport pickup was on time .
This place is nearby a beach hardly 5 mins walk.
They have some good movie collection .
2 helpers are there to take care and they just a call away be it arranging a cab or food they will take care of you.
Regarding Internet :
They do have Wifi but sometime it works sometime it does not, if you use Airtel 3G connection i will suggest you to either opt Vodafone or Idea cuz there is some connectivity issue with Airtel not in the particular location across Goa .
Had the best experience thanks to Airbnb and Team Casa Mia .
Stayed there during 2nd weekend of July at Casa Mia. I have booked it through airbnb.
All the reservation, changes and further communication with the owner of the property was very timely.
The property is –
•Very serene & peaceful atmosphere, you can just sit out and ponder over all those thoughts you have been waiting to think over
•Services from the property maintenance staff was very good and any requests were timely acted upon (Rambabu & other person). They only make their presence felt when needed.
•Everything you would want to lookout for is almost round the corner (beach, restaurants, bike or taxi rental can be arranged, etc.,)
•Very neatly maintained property with lot of plants making it look more beautiful
•Cab Drivers reference provided is very helpful. They were on time for airport pick-up, drop and site seeing (Sunil & Deepak)
•Beach is around a 5 min walk as mentioned and on the way you can stop by few resorts to have your breakfast / drink / dinner.
•If you are not happy with the channels available on the TV, you may use the DVD collection provided.
The corridor sit-out is really amazing. Good view of greenery and nice breeze
Just faced 2 glitches:
•Staff at the Casa Mia were not aware of our early check-in. So the room which was reserved for us was not cleaned. They requested for additional 30 minutes and made it ready
•Internet wasn’t working for whole of the 4 days we stayed around the place
Ubytování odpovídalo tomu, co je na fotografiích! Vše bylo čisté, uklizené. Správci nám každý den uklízeli pokoj a měnili ručníky. Vše perfektně fungovalo. Okolí bylo také (website hidden) pláž je to opravdu kousek a vše je po ruce. Není co vytknout! :-)
Loved this airy apartment in quiet lane seconds from beach. No pool, you just have to buy drinks and food at a local resort to use theirs if that's an issue.
All our expectations of the elegantly furnished apartment in quiet location at Calangute Beach were more than exceeded. By prior arrangement with Rohit we were picked up by taxi at the Panjim airport and our driver Sunil was excellent and he drove us safely to Calangute. Our upstairs apartment was bright and airy with big bedroom, very comfortable bed, quiet split system AC, plenty of English language channels on the TV including BBC, CNN, Al Jahzeera, TLC, some movie channels and all the Indian favourites. Big open lounge/ dining / kitchen area with gas stove, kettle, toaster and big fridge and all the cutlery and crockery and cooking utensils you need for small meals and snack making. Nice table and chairs for our morning coffee and lounge suit and coffee table for our afternoon tea and quiet reading. The inhouse attendants Sheckhar and Rambabu were unobtrusive, but ready to tend to your every need 24/7 and they were both smiling and friendly and helpful. Match all these facilities with a nice quiet location just a short walk from the beach and all the restaurants, small shops, money changers, doctor etc etc that a tourist/holiday maker could want and you will be glad that you chose to stay at Casa Mia. We sure were and we would recommend it to anyone. It will be our first choice when we come back to Calangute Beach.
Although we never met Rohit, the two boys employed to maintain the appartment were fabulous. They were always available to help out with questions and provide us with water, umbrella and hairdryer!! The appartment is lovely - just as it shows in the pictures; couple of minutes walk to the beach and plenty of restaurants. We ate somewhere different every night and didn't have one bad meal. Loved the Jolly Dolphin beach shack for our days on the beach. Neil the taxi driver collected us from and dropped us back to the airport - very knowledgeable and speaks good English too. Had a very relaxing 9 days here and enjoyed it a lot.
We had an excellent 5 nights at this apartment. It was spacious, and perfect for two people. The caretakers were friendly and helpful. The beach was only a 2 minute walk away.
