"THE place to stay in Goa"
We had been traveling a few weeks around India and wanted somewhere to relax for a week. I emailed Deirdre (the owner) as soon as I saw the listing because it sounded perfect and she was really prompt… More
Dear Vicky and Tom,
Thank you for your wonderful feedback! Ashley and I were absolutely thrilled to read how much you enjoyed your stay at Sea Breeze Luxury Holiday Home and Majorda. You made our day!
When choosing the Apartment, we had a look at several properties around South Goa and as you rightly said, we found Majorda to be the cleanest, safest and with the most welcoming locals. When traveling on your own or with family, we believe that these factors are so important.
Additionally, the positioning of Sea Breeze is just perfect with the beach a short stroll away and a multitude of shops and restaurants just below. The peacocks are an added bonus!
We keep making short trips to the apartment so that we can add to or upgrade it. With the way the world is progressing, we strongly believe that what worked a year or even 6 months ago may not always work today. We are lucky that Dubai is just a few hours away!
Wilson and Maria are a class act and we are so lucky to have them!
Thank you once again for choosing to stay with us and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon.
Until then, all the very best to both of you.
Ashley and Deidre

"the name is program"
After searching for hours on the internet I finally chose this apartment and i must admit that from the very first contact by email to the last day everything has just been great.I would like to thank Deidre&Ashley for making this apartment so comfortable to live in. Me and my family enjoyed evey single day there and my son even cried when leaving. Wilson and Maria will take care of you whenever help is needed so I give them a big hug virtually. Majorda village sure is a very nice place to stay and the Goans are very warm and gentle people so there really is nothing to complain about.Can`t wait to go back there. Michael&family.
PS: I already recommended the apartment to friends of mine so this means a lot!
You are too kind... thank you so much for your wonderful feedback.
It was such a pleasure having you and your lovely family stay with us. Wilson and Maria grew so fond of your little one and cannot wait to see him again.
We do try our best to give our guests an amazing holiday from start to finish and we are so glad that we have been able to exceed your expectations.
Though the apartment is still new, we are constantly upgrading and adding to it so that our guests are not only offered the very best in luxury amenities but also an experience to last you a lifetime.
Thank you once again for choosing to stay with us on your first visit to India and we look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.
Be well and warm regards,
Ashley and Deidre

"Lovely house very close to beaches"
We chose seabreeze apartment after looking at the online reviews. Booking was very easy and there was constant online support from the owners and this was very useful to us on our first ever visit to Goa. The ownwers were also very accomodative about the payment options and appeared to be more interested in making our holiday as hassle free as possible.
We were met at the airport by Wilson who we had heard about in the reviews. He was simply superb. He showed us various places on the way to the house and even took a little detour to collect some cashew fruits for us.
The apartment was very spacious for the the four of us. It had good views and was well airconditioned. The balconies provided a nice place to have our tea and for the family to get together.
There was a lot of thought put into catering for needs of a long distance traveller. There was free mobile provided which was a great help as getting a SIM card in India can be a real hassle.
There was extensive information of the things that we could do.
The restaurants (Pentagon) and the shops around the house made it easy to find food at short notice. Good exchange rates were available locally although the rates were even better in Madgaon (Wilson's contact)
The proximity to the beach meant that we could stay late and see the stars in the moonlight and go again early in the morning before sunrise for a jog from Majorda to Colva (5kms) to have breakfast (good south Indian breakfast in Sagar Kinara, again recommended by Wilson). We have seen many beaches in our time but the beaches in Majorda were outstanding. The spice farms located close by are definitely worth a visit. Transport on road by taxis can be QUITE EXPENSIVE especially for short distances. (worth looking around for the best price)
We highly recommend this comfortable apartment in a great location with very very helpful owners and great local support (WILSON is your man)
Thank you so very much for your wonderful feedback.
We are so grateful for and touched by your kind words and are absolutely thrilled that we, in our own little way, helped make your holiday special. We are frequent travellers and have set up the apartment with all that we look for and expect when in a new country. The fact that the little extras made a difference to your holiday tells us that we have done something right!
We always keep adding to /upgrading every aspect of the Apartment to not only stay one step ahead of the market but to ensure that our returning guests continue to feel pampered, comfortable and above all relaxed as that is the corner stone of a great holiday!
We do hope we have the privilege of welcoming you back and in the meanwhile, if there is anything we can do for you we are just a phonecall away.
All the very best to you and your family.
Ashley and Deidre.

"Great place, nice view"
This house is very nice: beautiful, clean, with a great view. It's bigger than I thought from the pictures. There was plenty of room for 6 of us. It's a little walk to the beach, but this house is the closest you can get unless you stay at the resort/casino. The walk is paved and easy, so it was no problem to go twice a day to the beach. The Pentagon across the road serves great steaks, prawns and "Crispy chicken" (A lot of food for the price on that dish). If you use the rice cooker in the house and order an Indian meal (chicken korma, etc) from Pentagon, you can do lunch for Rs. 170 for two people. There is a little market right down the street that sells basics.
Wilson (the driver) was very helpful and offered to take us grocery shopping on the way in. He was conscientious and got us to the airport in good time at the end as well. It was a great stay.
Thank you so very much for your very kind words and wonderful review.
You have so aptly summed up all the reasons we chose the house and consider ourselves extremely lucky to have been able to secure the house with the most stunnings views of the area.
With the beach, convenience stores and wonderful restaurants just outside, you have all you need for a perfect vacation. We are thrilled to have been able to share with you our little piece of heaven and hope to have you and your lovely family come again soon.
Thank you once again and all the best to you.

"Beautiful apartment with everything you need for a perfect holiday"
We have just spent 6 wonderful weeks at Sea Breeze & it met all our expectations. Ashley & Deidre did or reservation most professionally answering our many questions. We were met at the airport by Wilson the manager & taxi driver, who was a lovely person & he & his ife Maria looked after us so well. The apartment is perfect,5 mins from beautiful beach,with shops,restaurants,money exchange all just outside. So many extras included such as laptop, phone,tablet,hair dryer,beach towels. Apartment was well furnished & very clean with lovely showers & good kitchen, where we cooked dinner to take out to the balcony. We loved watching the peacocks, woodpeckers,kingfishers,kites & many more beautiful birds from the balcony, it was idyllic. Swimming pool was very clean. Bread boy came round every morning & evening from the bakery. Local bus into Margoe was every half hour & only 10 rups. Shacks on beach,especially Mish Mar & Sams, served good food. Walk along the beach to Colva for breakfast & a must day out is Bettys boat trip. We are missing Sea Breeze but will be back,thank you Ashley & Deidre.
Thank you once again for choosing to stay with us and for your kind words. We are thrilled that we have been able to live up to your expectations and that we, in our own little way, helped make your time in Goa memorable.
Sea Breeze is truly a nature lover's paradise and with the beach just moments away, helps enhance the experience.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Sea Breeze Luxury Holiday Home when there will be many new additions to the home.
We wish you nothing but the best for 2014.

We would like to thank you for your assistance from enquiry to our return to the uk. Everything was handled very professionally from start to finish and as a result all went smoothly.
We would also compliment you on the accommodation which was very tasteful and perfect for us.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have and will continue to highly recommend the apartment to all our friends.Our thanks to Wilson & Maria for their attention during our stay. While it was not a big problem a safe would be useful.
We have stayed in Goa for many years but this was without doubt the best place we have had.As soon as we can arrange holiday dates we will be contacting you, however I suspect we may be too late,as we are sure you are going to be fully booked very soon (and deservedly so).Still here,s hoping wer,e lucky and able to stay once more at your wonderful apartment.
Once again thank you for letting us enjoy your holiday home,as we,re sure many will in the years to come.
A happy, healthy and prosperous New Year to you both.
Bob & Lynne Yeats
Dear Bob and Lynne,
Compliments of the Season to you and your family!
Thank you ever so much for your kind words, you have really made our day!
We both worked very hard putting the apartment together. As this is our first holiday home, we wanted everything to be perfect for our guests and then to hear feedback such as yours makes it all worthwhile. Thank you!
We are so glad that we were able to meet all your expectations and will definitely take your suggestions on board. We have bought a safe for the home now. We will also be adding a few more bits and bobs to the house at that time and will also upgrade the linen, towels etc in addition to giving the home a fresh coat of paint.
Wilson and Maria are both wonderful and have been a strong support system for us, they really help us streamline everything. They also had nothing but nice things to say about you and stressed on the fact that you looked after the home like it was your own... once again a big thank you.
We really do hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Sea Breeze and will do everything possible to ensure that we are able to accommodate your booking. Thank you ever so much for also recommending us to friends and family, it is appreciated.
Thank you so very much once again, our best wishes to you for a Happy, Safe and Healthy 2013.

"If you want a quiet holiday in South Goa in a home away from home, Sea Breeze is just perfect!"
We have just returned from five weeks in Majorda, South Goa where we stayed at the beautiful Sea Breeze apartment . We have been visiting Majorda for many years and have stayed in many apartments around Majorda.. Sea Breeze met all our expectations and more! It is set in a fab location, and what the owners, Deidre and Ashley say you'll get you certainly do - and more! Flat screen TVs, Laptop with WIFI, books, well equipped kitchen.They dealt with our booking over the internet and answered all our queries and worries so patiently. Their apartment manager, Wilson and his wife Maria who housekeeps for you are absolute treasures! You feel so special. They are on hand to help you in any way they can.
The view from the apartment is a joy to wake up to and you an watch kingfishers and eagles flying overhead, whlle having your morning cuppa on the balcony. The beach is a stroll away with its many shacks. Our favourite is Aqaurian where our dear friend Samson is the proprietor. The food is excellent, and there is a good, clean, flushing loo!! Mention that we sent you, you will get treated well!! Try the local bus into Margoa, its only 10 rupees and good fun to go shopping! Get your Kingfishers delivered to the apartment from the local win shop, the guy drops a case down on his scooter and they are only 50 rupees a bottle! Lovely restaurants in the village, try the tiny Fresh n Up! Dont go if your really hungry they cook everything from scratch and you'll be there ages, but its delicious! Also go further out to FishKa, Scrummy!!! If you fancy a walk, go up to the top of the village and find the little bakers shop run by Fernadez and his son Wilton. They do lovely Patties and Pastries and super milkshakes and pizzas! The pharmacy opposite there is also great if you have any holiday ailments. They give good advice and usually medications are much cheaper than in the UK. The village of Majorda is full of friendly, interesting characters and you can find bargains in the little shops and stalls. Take plenty of insect repellent or use the local OdaMos as the Mozzies are keen!
Now,back to the apartment, its exceptionally clean, comfy, well furnished and we really enjoyed our stay so much we are going to book again for next season.
Thank you so much Avril and John for choosing to stay with us and for the lovely review. It was more than a pleasure having you and we eagerly look forward to welcoming you back next year. As you so rightly said, Wilson and Maria are absolute gems and we consider ourselves lucky to have them with us. All our guests have nothing but wonderful things to say about them... honest, trustworthy, efficient and down to earth. Very rare qualities in this day and age. We are so glad to have built such a great frienship with you over the last few months even though we have never met! It is all so wonderful. Please stay in touch and take care of yourselves. Warmest regards, Ashley and Deidre

"Superb Stay - amazing apartment"
AMAZING STAY - AMAZING VALUE - AMAZING SERVICE
we were met at the airport by your friendly and helpful management. Wilson was extreamly kind, helpful and efficient through out our stay - we used him for journeys, he helped with making bookings and even got us all the food (and beer) we needed for our stay. We felt very safe having him around. Maria was at the apartment ready to show us around and ensure we knew where everything was and how to work things and advice on what to do and what not to do.
I was concerned that when staying in an apartment we may have to fire up the coals to cook and even sleep on the floor but we were absolutely amazed by the condition and high standard of your accommodation. The kitchen, bathroom and bedroom facilities were 5 star! it was so nice to be able to relax some where clean, comfortable and bug free. The views from the apartment windows are lovely and we enjoyed many hours reading and enjoying the sun out there.
we mostly ate at the pentagon restaurant where the food was lovely and the service was great. Anna generally cooked eggs for breakfast!
we would like to thank you for the use of your apartment and couldn't believe how lucky we were to have found you - this is genuinely the nicest place i have stayed in india in all my 4 visits.
Having the use of the internet/mobile and water was hugely beneficial and very thoughtful.
i only wish we could stay for longer - however we had booked our next accommodation in Nasik.
we will definitely recommend you to all our fiends, family and work colleagues and hope to visit again in the future.
Thank you Thank you
ticking great and yes below doesn't come close to how excellent the stay was
Thank you for your excellent review! It was an absolute pleasure having you and your friends at Sea Breeze Luxury Holiday Home and I am so glad to hear that your stay was all that you expected and hopefully more.
We will continue to do everything possible to ensure that each and everyone of our guests enjoy only the very best in hospitality and comfort with constant upgrades to the home.
We sincerely hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again in the not too distant future. Until then, all the very best to you.
