The Space

About the property
Where would you like your house to be? Not right in the middle of clamor but close enough to the flagships and comfortable living? We thought the same when we bought this place, a spacious, luxe one BHK villa-apt in Aldeia Siesta, a newly constructed building with a fresh design and open podiums that houses 18 villa apts in Saligao, Bardez, North Goa.
The building is within a 24x7 security kept gated compound with an enticing pool for you to indulge whenever it suits you. It's extremely safe for families and unchaperoned ladies.
Our friend and supervisor is right there to arrange your desired, convenient mode of movement.
We're not saying our holiday rental is the best. But it's definitely best suited for the kind of stayer in you if these are the features you're looking for.
It adds that little cherry atop your Goan experience!

  • Ginza is a great host and it was a pleasure staying at her place. It was very sweet of her to get in touch through emails and help us in planning our itinerary. The house was very clean and tidy. It is located close to famous Calangute and Baga beaches and a two wheeler ride can take you to these places in just 5 minutes.

  • Mrs. Ginza George though not in Goa ensures that the guests are helped in every possible manner. She had created a customized travel plan for me after knowing my interests and eating habits. Those documents ensured that I plan my trip better. The eating joints, pubs and clubs recommended are worth exploring.
    Goagaga was a lovely cosy apartment. Every accessory in the house had a personal touch and quality. The place appeared beautiful than the pictures shared. The place was very clean with all the basic utilities in place.
    The only thing that works against is the location of the apartment. However, if you have a vehilcle on rent, there is no issue as it is just 2-3 km from the hangout zones. Though on the positive side, the place appears to be quiet and serene.
    I had a very good experience of staying here and would recommend Goagaga to all lookig for a comfortable stay.

  • First time on airbnb...was a bit hesitant especially travelling with my family...but after the very first call Ginza made, it was smooth and easy...She is a terrific host, and has things organized to the tiniest details...The apartment is very well furnished and organized by her...Exactly what I had in mind!!!...All in all...An Awesome Stay...Thanks once again :)

  • GOAgaga was an awesome experience for us as a honeymooning couple. Ginza as a host is so thoughtful and detailed that each day was carefully planned out and executed. It was a great customised customer experience right from pick up and check in through to daily itineraries and check out. Highlights - The thoughtful gifts, surprise bouquet, dedicated love song by the live band at a recommended restaurant. All this made the stay extremely special for us.
    Ginza's staff were also very warm, welcoming and helpful. Niranjan took special care of our requests. Ginza also made it a point to check in with us to make sure everything went smoothly. I'd rate Ginza and GOAgaga very highly and recommend it for people looking for a customised and well planned out holiday experience.

  • We stayed for 4 nights, we had never been to Goa before, we loved everything about this apartment!
    We rented a scooter and it was really easy to get around, the location is convenient.
    The apartment was very clean. We checked in at night and Ginza arranged a cab from the airport and even provided us with some food for breakfast for next morning. She is a great host!
    We would love to go back to Goa and stay again at Goagaga again!! Alex & Ani. Buenos Aires, Argentina

  • Our stay at GOAgaga was very pleasant and enjoyable. The apartment is very clean and near to nature. The house is gracefully decorated and fully equipped with all domestic appliances. Bed sheets and other clothes were of good quality and very clean. Look is royal. The location of house is ultimate, as it is near to popular beaches (Calangute, Baga, Anjana), entertainment points and other facilities.Every type of food can be called for at home.Service is fast.

    Ginza (The owner) is very nice host, polite and helping lady. She attended every call promptly and gave the solutions. She worked hard to give guidance about everything in Goa, popular eating points, popular places, Cab/ taxi owners's contacts etc and made our tour enjoyable.
    Niranjan (security man) is very helping and pain taking person. He helped at every point. Home cleaning is very good
    Over all we had a very nice time. We wish to stay there again in future.
    Thanks.

  • Ginza- what a host she is!!! I mean I loved the place. The interiors, the decor, the furniture, the lights everything was just amazing. We were 3 of us and we din't find any difficulty in finding the place as Ginza had provided us with accurate directions as well as snaps of the way. It took us just 10 minutes to reach from Mapusa to Goagaga. The place was spic and span. The Guard Niranjan comes at 9 am everyday but as we reached early around 8 am he had to come early which he did without any complaints. The place was home away from home. Coming back to Ginza, she was such a cool host. She provided us with some documentation of her own stating the best localities to roam about, shop, eat and celebrate with her own views. We followed her views and found the places to be amazing. Also, after we checked out we called her many times to get some suggestions. She was very humble to guide us after our stay in Goa gaga was over too!! Would love to come down to goagaga every time we come to goa!!!

  • The stay at Ginza's beautiful apartment was no short of a fairy tale. Initially, it was tough reaching the location, majorly because of lack of road sense of the pre-paid driver we hired from the Airport but again Ginza was very prompt in explaining the directions to us.

    The apartment was everything one can ask for! Beautiful decors, neat furniture, ample space and very very convenient. You can start living there with out any glitch if you have just brought clothes with you. The staff, including Niranjan and the maid were over-efficient and always there for any kind of help.

    Just one minutest of concern was the yellow bulbs used in the house, white would definitely uplift the decor. Plus better you tell the driver to take you to Nagoa and not Saligao.

    We are definitely coming back Ginza on our next visit to Goa.

    Loads of love and warm wishes!

  • Our stay at Goagaga was incredulous for numerous reasons. First, Ginza was super quick in accepting our query. I booked it in morning and landed in afternoon! Second, the location of Goagaga is to die for. Almost in middle of a green resort like hamlet and yet 2-3 kms away from the busiest parts of north goa. Third, the apartment is furnished really well. One look at it and you know that Ginza has decorated it for herself....not to rent out. From oven to cutlery to washing machine tv to, everything one might need is there and of premium quality. Fifth, the pool is something to die for. Just loved it. Sixth, Niranjan, Ginza's representative there is a true all-rounder and can take care of all queries and needs.

    And here's the best thing. Ginza sends you all the literature in emails about the best restaurants to nightout places that Goa has to offer. She does it without intruding your privacy once.

    I will be back!

  • Our stay at Goagaga was very pleasant despite it only being two nights. The apartment is very clean, has everything you need to make your stay as easy and as pleasant as possible. It is situated in a nice block of flats with 24 hours security who are very helpful. It's location is actually in Saligoa and not Calangute as indicated in the add. Despite Ginza providing us with directions non of the auto rickshaws or taxies knew how to get there and it was a bit stressful getting to the place. Our advice would be to contact Ginza's suggested taxis in advance of your journey. On our arrival, however, a scooter was arranged in no time and we started the exploration of the near by areas. The south facing balcony was ideal for heaving breakfasts. A nice shower and an air conditioning made it incredibly luxurious after the previous stays during our travel around India. A tinny improvement that we would suggest for Ginza is the installation of a router to be able to access the Internet on your phone/tablet in addition to cable.

    Response from Ginza:

    Thanks Sergey for the comprehensive review and detailed good feedback!! Yes I would consider the suggestion in due time.

    However pl note that the address clearly indicates it is Saligao and not Calangute. Saligao is a heritage village in Goa's map and am quite in love with that unlike Calangute :)

About
I'm a little bit of everything, quite literally. I'm keen on getting to know new things. I like to connect with different cultures and realize how shockingly different they're from mine!! I like to do a neat job of whatever I do, though practically I find it stressful and I feel it's not quite required! I believe in being a responsible, principled, and conscientious person at home and in public. I love to read. Love to bake and cook for people; spend time with family. Exploring local cuisine is something I enjoy. I like various genres of art. It's disarming to find artists engaging their mind to bring forth brilliant creations. I keep a food, art, and adventure blog. There are some unfulfilled dreams. GOAgaga is my baby step to realizing one of them! Hope you've a good stay! If disappointed in some way do let me know because everything can be fixed with a bit of nice communication in GOAgaga!!
