After 2 months in hotels it was amazing being able to cook and relax in this private apartment. Loads of local shops for groceries, and beach/restaurants just 5 mins away (we recommend Jamie's for an amazing steak, yes, in India, almost unheard of).
It was great having tv with lots of film channels etc, but the Internet is very slow (could be the whole area though), so if you have work/planning to do it's possible, albeit a little frustrating.
The sofa in the cheaper apartment isn't the one pictured, and unfortunately we found it pretty uncomfortable, which was a shame for a 6 day stay, but we asked for extra pillows for the bed, which helped on the sofa.
The ac remote needs replacing as it's hard to alter the temperature, and the bathroom fan needs fixing, but they are only small issues and Gladina, Milward's mum, helped with any other issues extremely quickly.
Would love to stay again. X
We were warmly wellkomed bei Milward. On the 2 day of our staying wir moved into another room with all accommodations, Milward was very friendly, she brought everything that I asked her, Iron, clean bedlinen, towels. Moreover, she offered her own skooter for a very nice price. She lives not in the hose, but there is a housekeeper who cares for all problems you may have. Once wir had a sink outflaw and he removed the problem in one minute.
Big room very well located, in the heart of colva. Just few min walk distance to the beach. Very quiet place.
Everything was clean and they did allow us to make a late check out, which was great.
All went very smoothly here from start to finish at this very nice place. To begin with, I arranged with the owner for an airport pickup and the driver was there, he took me to the apartment trouble free and kept the price as arranged however he did not have change so I wound up overpaying by 100 Rupees but that is a small amount so I just let it go.
About the place: I was very happy that it was exactly as the picture and everything worked very well all of which I really appreciated. The apartment is completely suitable for a long or short stay as it has everything one would need and the bed was nice for me.
The area is VERY quiet. If you are a party type this area won't be for you. The beach is quite close, just a 5 minute walk down the only main road. Along the way there are about 20 restuarants and many shops selling tourist items and jewelry and also tea and spices. The beach is sandy and extends in both directions as far as the eye can see.
All in all it is a very nice place and the host and his mother are very nice and helpful. I would stay here again for sure. Thank you, Milward.
My stay in Colva holiday homes was remarkable as this accommodation space is the best one, I have ever stayed.
It was a one BHK space with fully furnished option with all kitchen amenities. Definitely this is a place for all who look for a home stay atmosphere at a reasonable rate.
Hostess was very much helpful and was approachable at any time.
I will stay here again and will be my first preference.
We booked with Milward at the last moment but got full cooperation from his mom and dad. Milward's mom was out of town, but she managed to put everything in its place remotely. The place is located near the beach and is nice and comfortable. Would recommend the hosts and their place warmly.
We spent almost two weeks at Colva Holiday Homes, and it was a wonderful stay. In the apartment we had everything we needed. A couple of little problems were resolved without delay by Milward's charming mother who was very pleasant to talk to! Wi-fi was quite decent and stable.
The surroundings are even above expectations - lots of shops, very nice supermarket, pharmacy and so close to the beach which we also liked very much. But be sure not to forget: this is not a hotel. You should worry about soap and other little details yourself.
Highly recommended, because all the hotels on the main road are not as charming as your own little home)
We stayed at Florida Gardens with our 2 kids for 5 nights and this was the first time we were staying in service apartment and it was extremely satisfying experience, far better than staying in hotel. The apartment was big and clean and it was exactly as displayed in photos. We will definitely recommend this to anyone and will surely stay here again in future.
Host and family made us very welcome and were at the apartment to greet us and run through details of the accommodation on arrival. The apartment was very clean well decorated and as described on the site. The surrounding area was lovely and we felt safe on the complex and walking round.
Positives :- My overall experience there was very well. just the way I wanted it. Pleasant, safe, home-like stay................Had my privacy and like I was in home only. The Flat is on the beach road, full with markets, people, restaurants, ATM and everything available. Beach is also very close and lovely, just 800 metres away. The Flat has everything as posted in advertisement. Had Kitchen utensils and all although I ate outside only . The neighbourhood is excellent, safe, helpful and just LOVELY!
Negatives : - 1) Just had little problems with the directions i.e. to reach and find the place as no body (locals) seemed to know where the Holiday Homes in Colva is.
2) The advertisement mentions "There is a desktop computer with a printer, which is connected to the broadband Internet. " but I could not find any Desktop in there and when called'em , I was informed no desktop is there. I regretted not to carry my Laptop as thought Desktop'd be available but had to manage with my Phone then.
But apart from this, I have plans to keep coming!
I am really sorry about the desktop issue. I discontinued with the desktop/printer due to security reasons and misuse by few of the past guest. Next time I will definitely provide you with a laptop. - Milward
