The sands of the Candolim beach is less than 100 mtrs away; the Swimming Pool & Gym facilities are next door. 24 hours water and a back-up electrical sytem ensures an uninterrupted holiday. Unbelievable and abundant amenities, at no extra cost, make this beach house a perfect and chore-free holiday stay.

The interiors of the House itself are simple with no fake frills yet very attractive and blend well with the village environment. All Three bedrooms, with bathrooms en-suite, are upstairs ensuring undisturbed sleep.

The Vacation Rental is meant for a family/friends holiday stay and the extra spaces of a private house help in providing an uncrowded environment. This house ofcourse goes one step better with the Lounge area and the Garden sit-out - Both perfect for the gang partying it up together.

The Villa is modern, so all bedrooms have bathrooms ensuite and come with all the necessary trappings of a modern house: Geysers, Bathtubs, Air-conditioners, Fans, Satellite TVs and comfy Beds and Linen.

The Hall, Sitting room, Dining area and a fully-equipped, modern Kitchen are downstairs. The sitting place has a 29 inch TV and a DVD player and a small book shelf for the avid reader. The Kitchen is modern and fully-equipped with Two fridges, Microwave, OTG, Toaster, Sandwich Maker, Coffee Percolator, Rice and Milk Cookers, Water Purifier, Cooking Hobs and every conceivable item you would need and more; And perenially stocked with Tea, Ground Coffee, Sugar and Salt. Annexed to the house is the much favoured Covered Lounge Area and the Open Garden area. You choose where you want to party.

Downstairs there is an additional full-fledged bathroom that serves as a wash-room and comes in handy if you have downed one too many beers. Outside there is a shower, to get rid of the sand from the beach, and an additional tiny bathroom. The best part is that the owners have been generous and refrained from adding an extra bedroom downstairs and instead provided a larger living area that makes for a far more comfortable stay and very spacious for family and friends to gather downstairs.

All in all, it's a laid-back place - homey, cosy and unpretentious. And to make your holiday perfect and chore-free, we provide you a long list of unbeleivable amenites:

The Goa region

Candolim, famous for its stretch of clean and beautiful beach, is a verdant, laid-back, coastal village, that typifies the Goan attitude: the ideal place to escape to. Unlike the neighbouring village of Calangute, which is crowded and cluttered with constructions, Candolim has mercifully and fortunately been overlooked. It still retains most of it's old time Goan village charm. Clean, open, uncrowded and very popular with well-informed and knowledgeable tourists who know what's best.

To the North of Candolim is the village of Calangute and the southern end of Candolim houses the Aguada Fort built by the Portuguese.

Candolim is just 15 Kms from the Capital city of Panjim. Drive along the coast line starting from Candolim till the Northernmost tip of Goa and you'll cover all the beaches in the North.

Some interesting facts about Candolim, culled from Wikipedia:

* During the late 16th century, Candolim became the first village in Bardez to be entirely converted to Christianity by the Franciscans

* The Magnificent Church of Our Lady of Good Hope, Candolim, is one of the oldest churches in Goa. Originally built in 1560.

* Candolim is host to the famous annual 'Sunburn' Electronic Music festival.

* One of Candolim's most famous sons 'Abbe Faria', born in Candolim, was a 18th century Goan Roman Catholic monk and a pioneer of the scientific study of hypnotism. He spent several years in the infamous chateau d'If prison in Marseilles, made famous for being one of the settings of Alexandre Dumas' adventure novel 'The Count of Monte Cristo'. Alexander Dumas was so impressed by Abbe Faria that he based his character Faria, who helps Dantes escape, on Abbe Faria.


The area around 'Saudades' is called Ximer - Meaning border in Konkani - and is the northern edge of the Candolim Village closest to the shore and touching the neighboring village of Calangute. Few steps out of the house and you are geographically in the village of Calangute. The location is rustic with old village type houses and friendly villagers. Dotted with trees all around, the place is perfect for a restful holiday. The land behind the 'Saudades' is a wooded area with a dusty road and pigs foraging around - Another world altogether. Yes, if a vacation is an escape from the grind of daily life, this area is the perfect hideaway. Many Restaurants and a couple of shops are just outside the house. All necessary establishments are within walking distance. The sands of the uncrowded Candolim beach is a one minute walk away. A few minutes' walk along the beach would bring you to the center of the crowded Calangute beach with a whetted appetite and in time for dinner at one of the many restaurants facing the Arabian Sea. After dinner - too dark to walk along the beach - suggest you take a cab back home. If you want to let your hair down and hit the night spots, the neighboring villages of Calangute and Baga will not disappoint.
