Zen gardens is a really cool place to stay and has everything close by while maintaining a very calm space. The swimming pop is great and the maintainence team and security provide a relaxing feel.
The apartment I stayed in was nice however it was not maintained and the host was overseas thus unable to oversee the welcome that I believe the airbnb community strives for. Problems with the TV, main light, Fan and the cleanliness of the fridge were all areas that could and should be taken care of. These issues were noted on day 1 and not rectified by day 5 however I had made the owner aware.
I moved out after my agreed time and let another apartment on the same complex for a further 8 days.
As a regular host and guest I feel it is important for hosts to be available to guests, in doing so we can keep the airbnb experience unique and not let it become a holiday home letting agency.
Riva was a good host. She was waiting for us to arrive and did manage to meet us on time despite us losing each other's numbers ! The apartment is clean and pretty close to Benaulim beach (15 min walk). Enjoyed our stay there and would definitely like to do it again.
Riva was a great host-any minor problems were sorted quickly.
The location is well placed for buses and is situated were it is quiet at nights etc with added security at the entrance.
Not far to walk to the shops,restaurants etc this place also as a pool were you can relax in the hot sunshine.
Hire a scooter (200/250 rupees a day)and of you go - do not forget to get a international driving licence as the police really love to fine the tourist.
Trains and buses are a great way to travel around India and cheap also.
I stayed three months here and the only slight problem was the mattress - in India only thin but this is India.
Overall a great place to relax and enjoy.
It was short weekend trip and had great stay altogether in CD ZEN Studio Appt. Thanks to Riva.
