Absolute great! Clean room and bathroom. Nice location, calangute beach 10 mins to walk. Tasty breakfast. For that price absolute acceptable.
Staying @ Joe & Marietta's orange room was a pleasant one... They are excellent hosts... I would definitely stay @ this place next time I visit Goa or would definitely recommend someone whose visiting Goa..... Oh and Marietta u r and excellent cook.. Really enjoyed the breakfast u cooked for us...
It was a quiet neighborhood and the room was tucked well behind in the cottage. Nothing fancy, but as promised in the photos and description. The room had been cleaned before our arrival and everything was in place. Though my friends and I stayed in the room for very less time, we felt comfortable. There was a mini refrigerator which we had not expected. No concerns about safety as Marietta left the dining table outside the room and said there was no issues with it. There is ample parking space for bikes; Joe and Marietta can also give you contacts for renting bikes if you require them. Overall, a good experience!
Thanks for the kind review. Cleaning the room is a matter of routine and all our guests know we do house-keeping daily. Since this is a regular practice, and since none of our other guests, have raised this issue before, we never thought it necessary to tell guests we do housekeeping. We think its a routine in other lodgings too. Anyhow, thanks for the feedback.
This was an amazing place to stay and the visit was just wonderful.
Before we got there , the instructions texted to us were pretty straightforward and simple. We got there in no time.
The room was neat and clean and had everything as expected. The room is really close to Calangute Beach and we used to walk there everyday. The hosts, were really helpful and cheerful and made our stay, a splendid one.
I definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place with great location , and on a budget.
We had a great experience at the Orange Room in Calangute. I, along with my two other friends, enjoyed the stay. It was exactly the same as mentioned in the description. Hot water, AC, TV, Breakfast, Clean washroom and cleaned room are some of the top things of this room. We had space inside the gate to keep our two-wheelers as well.
Marietta is quite helpful. We had received directions to the room on our mobile phone, which was helpful. Also, she sent breakfast to our room, one hour after the cut-off time ~10.30 AM. The breakfast was delicious and simple.
Few things, if done, can make this listing the best for this price. Wifi Signal in the room and longer comforting sheets are a couple of things, which can be improved.
My one week stay was fine here. Everything went well. Joe and Marietta was very helpful with the whole planning and getting there stage. Place was good to live in. Marietta cleaned it a few times during my stay so that was an added bonus.
Place was a little further from the beach than I thought it would be, It is a 15-20 min walk to the closest beach, Calangute. So its better to rent a scooter for about 250-300 rs a day to roam around the area. Joe helped me book a scooter right away (I dont have scooter licence, only drivers license). Also note that washing cost 15 rs per piece so maybe its better to wash your own socks and underwear! Joe will also help you book a taxi to the airport.
Overall excellent stay, great support from host who was always available.
Our stay at Joe & Marietta's Guest House was wonderful. Marietta was a gracious hostess and provided us with whatever we required. She even arranged a taxi for us at the very last minute to take us to the bus stand. The neighborhood is pleasant and quiet. There was no disturbance whatsoever.
The room was better than I expected. There's a shower in the bathroom, although the pictures don't show it. Everything is in working condition, and there's even a mini-fridge! For about 1000 a night, this was more than we could ask for.
I sincerely reccommend this place to anyone looking for an affordable, neat and clean room in Goa. You won't go wrong with this.
