“Sea Breezes” Dear Ashley &Deidre,
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
At the outset I must apologize to for putting up this review so late, nearly five months. Blame my procrastinating nature, work and personal commitments. Sorry Ashley and Deidre !!!
My family (wife, son) and I visited Goa for a week early October 2013. I had been planning for this trip since July/Aug, since the season starts in Goa post monsoon from October, so we knew that all the good places would be hunted down very quickly. From the outset we had made up our mind to stay in a serviced apartment as we need the option of cooking our own food. Not that we don't like to dine out or that we didn't but we like to keep our dining options open. This is priority number one for us and more so in a long stay. Second is that we wanted to avoid the resort/hotel crowd. And third is that we are very particular about what value we get for our money. Commercial resorts are not value for money. Period. And thus began our search for a serviced apartment in Goa. Now, the May same year, we had been to Goa for a shorter trip and had stayed near Majorda beach. We were captivated by the quiet relaxing atmosphere of Majorda and it's surroundings and thus our search was narrowed down to Majorda. After filtering out a few links from google, we clicked on Sea Breeze Luxury Holiday Home link. My first reaction to what they were offering for the price was disbelief. I thought it might be marketing, so I could probably tone down 75% of the stuff, but in retrospect, I must say I was very wrong to think it was merely marketing - actually, these guys provide more than what is written. I shot an email quickly and was pleasantly surprised to get an instant response - something unexpected. Thus from the very start, from the booking process itself, everything was super smooth, and we got absolutely crystal clear clarity on what we get for our money, again a rarity in the hospitality business.
We drove in our own car from Bangalore. (Though, we were given an option of complementary airport pickup and drop for staying a week). The property manager Wilson was present to receive us. As soon as we stepped into the apartment what immediately caught our attention was the space and how much value it was providing us for our money. What I remember is feeling so glad to have booked the apartment. Over time, we discovered that the owners have kept even the minutest needs of the guests in their mind and kept the house stocked with every kind of tidbits that one could possibly need. I need not repeat what all is offered and one can go through the extensive listing on their web page. Suffice it to say that one can find more than what they promise to provide. Just a small sample of how they are different. Two bedrooms, one living room and a kitchen, two bathrooms with geyser, two balconies, one utility. All three rooms - two bedroom and the living room have air conditioners. There are two televisions - one in the living and the other one in one of the bedrooms. I mean which hotel/resort is going to provide you this much. On top of this, furnishings, bedsheets, drapes seemed to be of some exquisite material. And especially the way the apartment was decorated and maintained - the ambiance - it was all so heart warming. The location is just perfect. Away from the road, the balconies face lush greenery. Nearby there are all kinds of shops, banks and restaurants. The restaurant Pentagon is just opposite the apartment complex. Beach is just five minutes walk. We found grocery, wine, supermarket and even a vegetable vendor at walking distance. The magic of Majorda and especially Sea Breeze is that you can find all the necessary conveniences nearby minus the crowd, hustle bustle, noise and pollution.
The owners, Ashley and Deidre, were constantly in touch with us through email to know if we were settled in and comfortable. The local apartment manager - Wilson and his wife Maria are such nice guys - took care of anything we needed without making us feel intruded in any manner. In short, Sea Breeze was a major reason for our holiday in Goa being spent so enjoyably.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, Ashley and Deidre. …

Beach Haven Holiday Apartment, Majorda, Goa
Good reasonable but basic accommodation
We paid for the apartment for my daughter/son and partners as we couldnt get them into the Alila Diwa where we were staying. Good location opposite Pentagon restaurant. First or second floor can't remember. 2 bedrooms/1bathroom/1 ensuite. Table and chairs and small sofa. Kitchen with fridge, they didn't do any cooking. Apartment complex did have a pool but there were no sunbeds or chairs to sit round it. I think for long stays you may need more facilities but perfectly ample and in close proximity to us. …
