The swimming pool is large and has a dedicated children's area. There is a shower for use before entering the pool. The complex, which comprises 5 villas and 2 blocks of 11 flats each, has ample parking provided if you are brave enough to hire a car and drive in Goa. Most visitors prefer to walk to the village and beach which are easily accessible and to take taxis or local tuc-tucs (rickshaws) to the surrounding sites. There is a taxi stand a very brief walk down the road and all taxi drivers are happy to come to collect you if you phone.
We leave a file in the flat which has some helpful hints for those new to Goa. We give you ideas on where to shop, and have drawn a map of the village to help you find the facilities there. We tell you about our favourite restaurants and give you the contact details of an excellent local travel agent.
There is lots to do in the surrounding area. The taxi drivers, who have a rank just down the road from the complex, are always willing to take you on day trips. The well know Anjuna flea market which takes place each Wednesday, is about an hour and a half away by taxi. Saturday night is the Arpura market, the same sort of distance by taxi. You can go on boat trips and bird watching trips and may be lucky enough to see Dolphns playing off the sea shore.
The Goa/West India region
Goa is India's smallest state. It was a Portuguese Colony for many years and the European influence is still evident in its architecture, food, culture and religion. It has a coast line that runs the entire length of the state, with amazing beaches of golden sands. Goa is a relatively rich state, with good education and transport in comparison to some other parts of India.
The holiday potential was first realised in the 60s. Comercialisation has led to multiple tourist hot spots clustered around the beaches in the North but South Goa retains its ethnic identity and is far less crowded and busy. There are excellent restaurants with an active night life, but it is also possible to eat in peace and quiet at a shack on the beach, the choice is yours.
Goa has a warm tropical climate. May is the hottest month with temperatures approaching 40 centigrade. The monsoon is generally June to October. In November to February the temperatures are around 29c (84 Farenheight) in the day dropping pleasantly to around 20c 968 Farenheight) at night.
Goa is five and a half hours ahead of GMT.
The electricity supply is 220 or 240 volts so most UK appliances will work with a plug adaptor
Activities available locally range from hiring a scooter or bike and setting off to explore to fully guided tours. You can go Dolphin watching, tour a working spice plantation, ride or have a bath with elephants, go casino cruising, or visit the 16th Century old capital of Velha Goa. There is a bird sanctury on the river Mandovi just outside Panaji and bird watching cruises are available off the river Sal. You can even take part in a cookery course and learn to produce some of the mouthwatering Goan dishes for yourself.
In our apartments we provide you with a file containing details of local sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, etc to start you on your way.
