We had a wonderful stay at Rima's apartment in Vagator. So wonderful, in fact, that our 4-day stay became a 12-day stay! The apartment is large, comfortable, and very clean, in large part due to Anita, the friendly and helpful housekeeper. The apartment is located in the far corner of the complex and below street level, so it's incredibly quiet and peaceful; you may occasionally hear a distant thumping bassline at night, but it's hardly a bother. The complex is quiet, the neighbors are friendly, and the pool is always welcoming in the heat. The neighborhood is nice too, with several shops, restaurants, and bars very close by and Vagator beach not very far away either. Rima is very friendly and helpful and it was very easy to communicate with her over email. She was very accommodating with our trip extension and it was a real pleasure staying at her place.

Rima's studio apartment was perfect for our stay in Vagator, Goa. It's in a beautiful complex and the apartment itself is tucked away in a quite corner away from all the Goa noise and chaos. The Vagator beach is a 10-12 minute walk away and very convenient. Rima is a great host, and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and acquaint us with the neighborhood. The studio itself is very clean and has all the basic amenities. Rima thoughtfully stocked up our fridge with some basics- bread, milk, eggs, etc. and some tea/ coffee. I'd definitely recommend this studio to anyone who wishes to get away from the madness of the mainstream goa beaches and visit the tranquil, beautiful beaches of Vagator.

Good location within walking distance to just about everything you need. Rima did a great job coordinating everything for us even though she was out of town. We were picked up and dropped off at the airport by her nice taxi driver friend Bank who also helped us rent a very inexpensive scooter for several days. We had a lot of fun in Goa ans would love to come back and stay at Rima's again.

This was our home for two weeks. We were more than comfortable and felt truly at home. Everything that our host Rima did to make things even more at home was much appreciated (and she did extend a very warm welcome). The property is very secure and well maintained. The 24/7 guards are knowledgeable and resourceful. Rima is our sister as well as yours she will look after you above and beyond. Thank you Sister!!! We used various modes of transportation however found that Suresh (a rickshaw driver) was most reasonable and took us everywhere. Do find this guy it'll be worth it. His number at the time was (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) a more than nice driver!

We absolutely loved this place, the room is big and the garden is beautiful, the warm water was directly from her solar heater. We were especially lucky to meet our host Rima, she spent some time with us and told us a lot about what to see and where to go. It is a quiet and peaceful space, and within some minutes you can be in the middle of other people, if you feel like it. We recommend this room for a relaxed and satisfying stay in North Goa. You find everything you need in walking distance - great food and internet places, the beach is just 10 minutes walk. We liked the beach to the left the best, walk past the first rocks and there are two shacks with deckchairs and umbrellas. The water is clean and warm, also many Indian families come there to swim and play in the water. We'd love to come back one time!

One of my best homestays ever. Although Rima was away, she ensured everything was well organised and kept in touch over email. Anita, her caretaker was wonderful. The room was very clean, welcoming and well kept. Great location and easy to get around in North Goa. It is a lovely quiet stay overlooking a forest patch - has the best of both - quiet and has restaurants and shops when you step out of the apartment complex. The vagator beach is walking distance.
