About the property
Located in a safe, quiet, posh and centrally located neighborhood, on one of the ocean facing hillsides of the city of Dona Paula, this spacious 2 bedroom flat is a nice getaway for the traveler who prefers peace and tranquility over night-life and the hustle-bustle of inner city life, without sacrificing accessibility. The location boasts almost any amenity or service necessary for a comfortable, safe and fulfilling stay, within a 2-minute walk, and is about 600 yards from the Vainguinium beach.
The apartment is about 1100+ sq ft, on the 2nd floor, and offers a significant elevation above the main street. There is 1 master bedroom (AC) with an attached western-style bathroom, a 2nd bedroom (AC), a guest western-style bathroom, fully functional kitchen, and a spacious living-dining area with a private balcony sheltered by a coconut tree for ample privacy.
The master bedroom has a large bay window with a view of the green belt and also a peek at the Arabian Sea. It has a king sized bed, a mirror, dressing table and large cupboard. The 2nd bedroom also offers a king-sized bed and large cupboard. The kitchen has a gas stove, fridge, microwave, streaming water purifier and various cutlery. Note that there is also a washer-dryer included on the premise. The carpeted living area offers 3 artificial-leather sofas with pillows, a coffee table and a small television (please bring your own DVD player with component-audio and S-video cabling). The dining area can comfortably seat 4 people.
This apartment does *not* have an inverter/UPS (Note that occasional brief power outages are commonplace in Goa).

Within a 200 yard radius, you will find a taxi and bus stop, a general supermarket, a restaurant serving traditional Goan, Continental and Indo-Chinese food, and a child care center.
