We stayed at Patrice's house in March '15. The house was great for our family of 4. We have two young boys and they loved the local animals, particularly the "monsoon dog". The house is in a great location with a short walk to Patnem beach. Patrice was very welcoming and helpful, the house is traditional Goan with a large verandah that overlooks the bay. As it is in a small village it is not always the quietest location, but we had a great holiday and would have stayed longer if we could.
Absolutely LOVED this place. Patrice greeted us when we arrived and provided everything we needed. We stayed 5 days and never had any problems. The house is exactly as pictured--very clean and well maintained. Water heaters work great, no issues with electricity (besides intermittent power outages for a minute or two, present all over India). The beds are comfortable and the porch swings were our favorite place to relax and have a cup of coffee. Patnem beach (our favorite) is a short walk/scootie ride away and is absolutely fantastic. Palolem beach is equidistant and has lots of fun restaurants and shops. Highly recommend this place for families as it's secluded, private, and quiet. Patrice handled all of our transportation for great prices and was available 24/7 if we needed anything. Great host! Great place! Great location with many things to do nearby! You won't be disappointed.
"Our Goa House" as we called it was a wonderful place to stay in the area of Palolem and Patnem. The house is about a 10 minute walk from either beach, so we often went to one in the morning and the other in the evening. We were met on arrival by Patrice, who had many helpful hints for us, and either he or his lovely sister brought us water every few days and were sure to check in if we needed anything. The house is as in the photos- very tidy, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is basic, but we were easily able to make breakfast and lunches at home. We were a family of 5- three teens, two of whom had to do some school work, and wifi, though somewhat sporadic, was very adequate for our purposes. We had a wonderful stay at the house, and can only highly recommend staying here. We hope to return someday. Thank you so much!
Patrice und seine Schwester Martine sind optimale Vermieter. Sie hören zu, wenn ein Vorschlag zur Verbesserung des Hauses gemacht wird. Und wenns nötig ist, fährt Martine sofort einige Kilometer, weil beim Haussave die Batterien low sind. Eine solche direkte und unkomplizierte Kommunikation ist das, was ich mir in den Ferien wünsche - zuhause gibt es genug Problemfälle...
Patrice was a very good host, his local knowledge was invaluable to us and helped ensure that we got the most out of our holiday. The house was clean and comfortable with WiFi and Sky TV an added bonus. It was also ideally situated for exploring the local beaches (Patnem & Palolem).
Set among coconut palms in a small group of houses about five to ten minutes walk from the wonderful Patnem beach, we really enjoyed our stay here. Patrice was an excellent host: he was there to welcome us; he provided useful written notes; and he arranged an airport pick up for us. The house is simply but practically furnished with a basic kitchen, a good tv, excellent internet access and plenty of space. Far more secure and comfortable than a beach hut, we have no hesitation in recommending this property.
What an incredible piece of paradise! Patrice and his sister were the ultimate hosts, helping to arrange transport to Palolem, providing detailed information about the area and recommendations for restaurants, yoga classes and local markets. The house was a real retreat from the busier areas of Patnem and Palolem and was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The air conditioning and solar heated shower was a saviour and the wifi was reliable. Providing drinking water was a really thoughtful touch. We will be back and highly recommend Patrice's house for families, groups of friends or anyone looking for accommodation in this part of Goa!
Patrice was very kind and shared all the details of surroundings and for our regular needs. The place was excellent and had all the facilities. We were 4 Childhood friends who met after a very long time and we had extremely enjoyed the stay at Goa. We are carrying back a bunch of unforgettable memories along with us. We will be coming back one day again.
My three friends and I just stayed at the villa for 10 days and Patrice went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay, from arranging our airport pick ups, to helping us rent a scooter, to checking on the WIFI and cleaners. We couldn't have asked for more - huge thanks! The villa was spacious and clean, the WIFI was good, though it did crash a few times, this is India after all, and we were a 10-15 minute walk to both Patnem and Palolem beaches so we spent equal time at each. Perfect. We loved watching the Indian Bollywood TV late at night, and there are English channels too. We were given bread, milk and butter to get us going, and fresh drinking water was provided. The A/C works a treat and the washing machine saved our lives - sometimes sandy clothing can't wait till you get home! I would highly recommend this villa to anyone wanting a chilled out spot from which to enjoy the Palolem / Patnem area. It was also really quiet at night!
Мы были первыми гостями из России у Пэтрика. Думаю, что не последними. Замечательный уютный дом в сельской местности для семьи или для компании друзей, как в нашем случае. Если хотите приготовить сами, есть кухня, ужины на открытой веранде, утренний чай на другой веранде с видом на море. Удобные кровати , что на самом деле важно и не в каждом жилье есть. Рядом красивейший пляж. Умница собака Ая смело охраняла нас . И , конечно, безграничное гостеприимство хозяина. За это отдельное спасибо Пэтрику. Так что если надумаете путешествовать по Индии самостоятельно, то рекомендуем остановиться в этом гостеприимном доме. Ноябрь 2014г.
