The Goa/West India region
Goa has all the swaying palms and white sand beaches you could ever want, but to go beyond he beach and you'll find hidden delights. Portuguese mansions and Hindu temples, bike rides among shimmering rice paddies, walks through lush spice plantations. Discover the tropical indulgences of India's most laid back region'. (Lonely Plant 5th edition)
Goa is found midway down the Western Coast of India, tucked between the states of Maharashtra and Karnataka. It is the smallest state of India being just 3700sq km..Goa's climate is distinctive. Hot days mingle with cooler evenings between November and February. Things then hot up a little as the air gets more moist with the approach of the monsoons between March and May. June to Sept see's the sometimes relentless torrents of rain that the monsoon can bring with wild and wet days intertwined with magical calm sunny ones. Post monsoon, the temperatures are still in their mid 30's with night time temperatures and humidity giving little relief from the daytime heat.
There are about 1.4 million people in Goa, with a large number still living in rural communities. There is a good mixture of people in Goa, with approximately 33% Catholic, 65 % Hindu, 1% Muslim and 1% being made up of other religions. English is widely spoken in the state along with the native tongue Konkani and the national language Hindi.Goa was taken by the Portuguese in the 16th Century and remained a Portuguese colony until 1961 when the Indian army liberated Goa. The state became India's 25th in 1987, after that date Goa started to make a mark for itself on the tourism map. Portuguese architecture is still widely seen in Goa and gives it much of its character.
Calangute is a census town with a permanent population of approximately 16,000 (2001) in North Goa, in the state of Goa, India. It is famous for its beach, the largest in north Goa, visited by thousands of domestic and international tourists alike. The peak tourist season is during Christmas and New Year, and during the summer in May. During the monsoon season, from June through September, the sea can be rough and swimming is prohibited. The beach offers water sport activities like parasailing and water skiing, among others.

"Basic but adequate"
The appartment is, in line with most places in Goa, pretty basic. The bed is hard but one gets used to it. The place, however, is perfectly adequate with all essentials. There is a bedroom which has two single beds pushed together in the local fashion and a sitting room with sofa, two easy chairs, coffee table,T.V. on a stand and a large fridge with ice box.
The galley kitchen has a sink, microwave, kettle, toaster and a one ring electric hob. The one drawback is the lack of hot water to the sink which means that to wash-up one has to go to the bathroom to fill a bowl.
The bathroom is typical of the area, having a shower, hand wash basin (cold only) and toilet. The one difference to other rooms in the area is that each appartment in the Colonia de Braganza complex has individual water heaters which means that the hot water can be relied on for pressure and temperature, a welcome bonus!
There are also two balconies overlooking the gardens and pool.
We like to sit out on the balconey and watch the world go by, so would have preferred to be on the first, rather than ground floor, but that said it was pleasant talking to passers-by.
Sarah, the manager, is a darling and the few problems we had were dealt with quickly and efficiently. The room-boy visits weekly which was, for us, adequate. He is not, however, very good at cleaning the skirting boards or balcony rail.
The main areas for improvement are that the curtains are rather thin and totally see-through and the place could do with one or two table lamps to give an improved ambience.
All in all, this is a very pleasant place to spend the winter!
Thank you for your comments. An accurate review and as seasons go on we will add more and upgrade so this room eventually becomes a great one. Its perfect for those who like to be as you did in the heart of Calangute who appreciate its location. See you again.

"Worth for Value"
It was a nice experience staying here. We were four people stayed here during 21-23 Dec 13.Rooms were clean and good hospitality.Toiletries were not provided by default & was provide only on request. … More
Thanks for your review. As this is a private room run by outside staff and not the hotel it is not possible to top up toiletries after they have been initially left. However we are looking at maybe increasing the welcome toiletries to include more items so a great suggestion. We look forward to a future stay.
