"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.
We had a great stay at Patrice's house. As advertised, the house is traditional Goan style and simply but adequately furnished. The house is in a great location, a short stroll to the stunning Patnem beach which has a decent selection of friendly beach bars and eating places where you can hang out. Alternatively, it's a few minutes in a tuk tuk to the busier Palolem.
The veranda at the back of the house is what it's all about, a great space to hang out and enjoy the sea views.
The house style is basic: this isn't a 5 star resort. However it is full of character and in a top location. If you are familiar with Goa, you will welcome the local fauna with open arms, in particular the adorable local dog and cat. Patrice, the host was helpful and very welcoming. He helped us to arrange airport transfers, local restaurants and a driver. Great value for money, thanks.
Patrice was there to welcome us and make us feel comfortable. He gave us some bearings for the neighbourhood and even arranged a scooter for our stay. Such a great location between two fabulous beaches. It was very private and we really enjoyed the outdoor spaces and the great views. The house was clean and tidy beds were comfortable and we made friends with the local Dog cows and chickens. Lovely to walk around the area too.
