5 of us had a lovely stay at Patrice's house in Goa. It is as described, the location is great, and Patrice made sure we had everything we needed. The restaurants in Palolem are excellent - the grilled catch of the day in Dropadi's as good as we've had anywhere.
I had an incredible experience. Patrice was an awesome host that made us feel welcome and settled. Patrice helped us arrange our transportation, as well as gave us pointers on the surrounding areas, which definitely helped us in getting around and knowing where to go for good fun. An all-around great guy who was always ready to accommodate.
As for the location itself, the apartment was great. Upon arrival it was clean and featured all the amenities we were expecting. The bathroom was well equipped and we never needed more than what was provided. The semi-kitchen counter served us very well when we needed to make tea/coffee, cook, or reheat food using the pots and pans & hot stove provided. Patrice was kind enough to provide us with some food items in the fridge that definitely came in handy when we forgot to get groceries! The place is cozy and incredibly quiet, also safe.
The village of Talpona is very peaceful and calm. The locals were always welcoming when we'd walk to their shops and bars, and we never felt like we "invaded" their space, we truly felt like we belonged. The beach was great, quiet, and peaceful.
Overall it was a great & comfortable stay. From Patrice's hospitality to the coziness of the home and neighbourhood, I definitely plan to come back again. We had a better time here in Talpona & the Canacona area than we did when we went to the busy North for the remainder of our trip. I recommend this place for anyone seeking a quiet, comfortable getaway in the South. Highly recommended for couples seeking quality time together.
Dům je ve výborné lokalitě, skvěle zařízený a velmi bezpečný. Patrice je skvělý hostitel. Zařídil nám základní potraviny na začátek pobytu, dopravu z letiště i výlety dle naší potřeby. Jeho spolupracovníci jsou úžasní. Celá naše rodina (dvě starší děti) litujeme, že jsme nemohli zůstat déle. Velká pochvala za přístup hostitele! Kdo říká, že srpen není ideální doba na návštěvu Palolemu, ten se mýlí!!! Málo turistů, výborné jídlo v restauracích u pláže a milí prodavači cestou do Palolem Beach. Doporučuji k návštěvě!
Epic hospitality by Patrice and team. He was available the moment we reached cancona. He and his team was available at a phone call and made us feel home. Villa is in excellent condition And is very near to Palolem and pathnem beach. Both are 5 mins away by drive. Excellent must visit
This was our second time staying in Canacona as we loved the house so much the first time. Patrice was awesome once again, and we found eveything the same as before. I would recommend a stay in Goa during monsoon, as it is really quite a different place. Very peaceful, no tourists, and yes, there are several restaurants open in Palolem, even one on the beach! But no real swimming....We did use the AC this time around and it worked fine. There were occasional power outages, but that is to be expected in this part of India. Patrice is a great host, laid back but informative and very helpful with anything you might need, eg taxi hire, etc. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Thanks once again, Patrice.
Patrice was a wonderful host, communicative and responsive to our needs. The villa was beautiful, well-stocked and we appreciated its convenient location in between Palolem and Pantem beaches. Definitely recommend!
We had a fabulous time at South Goa. The house was exactly as described and the location was terrific. Lovely to get out of hotels and stay in a house where you have room to move. The verandahs were very relaxing and we liked the extra little touches such as candles, incense, fairy lights, books etc. Patrice understands customer service and is very accommodating. We would highly recommend this as a great place to stay.
We loved our time here - if only it could have been longer. The house is a perfect spot, 10 mins walk to the beach, but away from the crowded beach-front. It is also very clean, cool & comfortable.
Patrice was the perfect host, totally relaxed & very happy to help with anything we needed.
We would certainly stay here again.
The experience was absolutely superb. Me and 4 classmates from school stayed at Patrices place for a few nights while consulting a social entrepreneur and had a great time. The host was very helpful and gave the insight into the area that we needed.
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.
