This was our second trip to Derrick's and awesome as before. Derrick takes great care of his properties, they were all freshly done up. The apartment complex itself is very well maintained. We were so lucky to find him first time around, now we never need to look else where in Goa. How to plan your next Goa trip, find Derrick's place on airbnb, pray its available, book and get here :) Thanks once again Derrick for a great stay!
Derrick was a great host, he greeted us at the door and gave us directions to nearby beaches and restaurants, which was extremely helpful for Goa first-timers. The apartment was clean and quiet and all the appliances worked. All the major hangouts/beaches were a short cab ride away (none of us were comfortable driving in left-side traffic) and the cab fare is negotiable.
Our stay at Derrick's house at Nagoa was a very pleasant one! Derrick is an amazing host who stays in the same campus and is always willing to answer your phone calls and provide help in every possible way he can. He gives the best advice regarding the places to sight see, the best and cheapest ways to commute and the things to avoid as a tourist in Goa! The house has a reasonably good location. It is pretty easy to commute to some of the most touristic places in Goa using public transports or by hiring a car or a motor bike! The apartment itself is very clean and has all the amenities one needs to make oneself feel at home! It is also perfect for a romantic escapade! All in all, we will definitely come back here the next time we are in Goa!
Mr.Derrick was a wonderfull host, that the moment i got intoduced to him came to know i can rely on him. His age and experience speaks well as he gives an walk around of appartment and intro speech.
Appartment was perfect. You'll find everything you need its for vacation rental.every piece of crockery to linen is jus in the right place. located in a 10 mins drive from baga-calangute beach is another advantage. vehicle renting can be done jus nearby the appartment itself(Derrick will help u with this too).We needed extention at the last minute and derrick handled it correctly.
I will definetly stay with Derrcik next time and would recommend it to others.
Cons: you have to be extra carefull about ants!! Even closed noodles packets were attacked.
We have just returned from staying in one of Derricks apartments, for 3 weeks (November 2013). Derrick was a wonderful host and nothing is too much trouble, he wants you to have a great holiday. The apartment was spotlessly clean in every way. Well equipped with everything that you could need to enjoy your holiday. Good size swimming pool that you can actually swim in as apposed pottering about like a plunge pool. The location is good and peaceful, which we thoroughly enjoyed. However, you would be well advised to rent a scooter or take a taxi to travel to beaches and restaurants. We would recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to book again should we decide to return to Goa.
what you see is what u get!!! The place looked exactly the same as in the pictures!! Absolutely clean, spacious and a great place to stay.
Derrick and his wife are great hosts and very helpful.
My friends and I enjoyed the weeks stay here and would love to go back!!!
Thanks for having us!!!
I stayed at Derrick's for one week over the Christmas break. The apartment was very clean, Derrick had already stocked the refridgerator with drinks for me, and the location is very central to get to all the major beaches. The apartment had a great view with a quiet location and a very clean pool as well. I would definetely stay here again. Derrick is a great host if you need help with anything as well.

About the Host, Derrick
Hi my name is Derrick, I reside at CAMPOS VERDES, NAGOA, and lease out apartments in the same property. Having served with the airline industry in Mumbai for over 24 years I enjoy meeting people and interacting with them.
Hence after calling it a day with the airline industry, and Mumbai's pollution I decided to relocate to Goa & get into the hospitality industry to fulfill my dream of not only being my own boss but most importantly doing what I love, meeting people & seeing that all their needs are met with a personal yet professional touch.
Having been in the business of apartment rentals for the past eight years I'm confidant I can deliver as promised and my repeat clientele is a sufficient reward for my efforts.
Also love challenges and I am prepared to deliver at all cost.
Do try what's on offer to experience the magic ! , bet you will never be disappointed, that's a promise!!!!.
