  • Had a great stay at Mark's my only issue is that I wish I had more time to enjoy his place and the surrounding area. Great nightlife and great food in Goa

  • Excellent villa and location, would highly recommend it to anyone looking at staying in Goa.

  • Mark is a great host & the property caretaker was very helpful. When we ran into a few challenges, Mark was very responsive. The villa is tight on the beach & doesn't get much noise from the restaurant next door (which has great food!). Good option for on-the-beach proximity & because the stretch has heaps of small eateries, you can wander all day without ever leaving Candolim.

  • Amazing location... bang on the beach.. do not expect a five star.. very functional.. Mark was great... left us complimentary beers for the first night.. The caretaker was also good.. did not complain about the mess we made.. we were 7 guys and had a ball..
    the only negative would be having only one bathroom..but if you are only guys I think you can manage.

  • The villa was on the beach so the stay was great with the crashing sound of the waves and the cool breeze. My son enjoyed the experience of being so close to the sea. Never a early morning riser he would be up and ready to go to the beach at 6.30 a. m. The whole family had a relaxing time since the villa was very spacious too.

  • Mark is a wonderful host - right from the start he responded real quick that inspired confidence and 1 week prior to my trip he contacted me again with an update on the weather and some additional facilities to the property. The place is exactly as it appears in photos and infinitely more beautiful on a full moon night (that we were lucky to have) with the shimmering sea right in front of the porch. The place is very well maintained and even if the house is the hosts ancestral property, he has maintained it immaculately and modernised it to the extent possible. Mark is a host who thinks of your small requirements well in advance and small things like a flying disc to play on the beach, some chilled beers to refresh you etc go a long way in welcoming you and conveying that the host cares. One of the earlier reports on this property suggested that the service staff was a bit bothering in terms of his presence but Mark has sorted out very well now. There is a bell now and he appears only when you press it otherwise not. Privacy is assured all the time and its a big property so enough space to rest and relax. The beach is one of the most cleanest I have seen in Goa and secluded from the crowded nearby beaches. The property is in close proximity to all necessities like stores / shops, restaurants etc but yet ensconced away from it all assuring our privacy and peace. This is a hidden gem and I strongly recommend this property after having stayed there for 4 days. Thank you Mark for make us so comfortable and our holiday was great thanks to this great place to stay. It's quite affordable too considering that Goa has abundance of over hyped and over priced places.

  • Perfect location on a perfect beach! We had our two young daughters with us. We were able to put them down for a nap and the hit the beach by ourselves as the house was right there on the beach. We could check-in on them frequently without any hassle. The restaurant next door, Palms and Sands, had fantastic food and if you told them you were staying in the yellow house next door, they'd even deliver it right to the front porch! So easy. The beach had great sand and the house was located about a 5 min walk down the beach from the "busy" area which meant that you had peace and quiet and the sands almost completely to yourself...or you could exert a little energy and wander 5 minutes up the beach for more action. We opted to just lounge in the lounge chairs in front of Palms and Sands and do absolutely nothing! Only downside for us, which may actually be a perk for others, is that the caretaker of the property lives right on site and tries to serve as a butler. We really value our privacy and expected for the keys to be handed over and left alone but the caretaker was immediately trying to open up beers for us or brew tea or coffee. He was constantly hovering around and cleaning up behind us. He was super nice though, as was his whole family, but it was just too much attention when what we were looking for was privacy. His English was limited so after trying for a few hours to get him to back off, we placed a phone call to Mark and problem was solved. We still saw a lot of him and his family, but it was far less attention than on day one and morning of day number 2. Oh, before I forget, another perk is that the host stocked the refrigerator with beer and juice, there was a filtered hot and cold water dispenser in the kitchen, AND, because we were bringing our two young children, the host bought a sand toy kit for them to use! The AC was awesome on the one hot day that we had. LOVED this place and would definitely stay again!
