The Nest is part of a beautiful and green condominium of around 70 villas, called Luisa by the Sea, located in South Goa. It offers you the best of both worlds. The tranquil river bank setting of Luisa by the Sea makes it an ideal haven for those in search of peace and quiet, while an easy 5 minute stroll takes you to the famous Cavelossim beach, home to a plethora of beach shacks serving fresh and absolutely delicious food.

This beach is wide and almost 25km long unbroken stretch of sand. You and your children can enjoy cycling on the beach, swimming or splashing about in the warm waters, water sports like parasailing and jet skiing, or simply playing in the sand. There are boat tours that will take you out into the sea for a few hours to spot dolphins. And you get to experience amazing sunsets on the beach.

Turn right at the main road and within 2 minutes you come to a parade of shops selling a range of wonderful clothes and artifacts you immediately want to take home!

There are so many restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walking radius that you can easily try a different one every night of your holiday, with an excellent selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine – Goan, North India, South Indian and Continental.

The Radisson Hotel, with its famous nightclub "Tito's", is almost right outside the gates of Luisa by the Sea.

Cycles and scooters (or a taxi) are available for hire just outside Luisa by the Sea.

A truly impressive venue that prides itself on offering the highest standards of comfort and style. Peace and quiet, inspirational artistic surroundings and the beauty of nature guarantee an unforgettable experience.

Location description from owner

The Goa region

Goa exudes charm and warmth mainly because of the friendly and happy-go-lucky people who reside there. The people of Goa are extremely hospitable and make their guests feel at home.

A very important part of the life of an average Goan is a 'Siesta'. This is basically an afternoon break when Goans retire back to their houses, shut down shops and take a break.

With lovely sundrenched beaches and a multitude of food shacks, Goa is the ideal tourist paradise. It also offers a unique multicultural and multireligious experience, with friendly people, ancient temples and old churches next to each other, and a combination of Indian and Portuguese influences.

GOA SPICE PLANTATIONS: There is more to Goa than just beaches, A major attraction in the rural side are the spice plantations. Situated in the region called Ponda (in central Goa), the spice plantations in Goa use organic methods of cultivation and farming. The spices that are produced are then cleaned and ground into powder.

The spice plantations of Goa are quite popular as a tourist attraction. On a typical excursion to the spice plantations, you shall begin your day by starting to explore the fields and the farms. It is very astonishing to see men climbing on very tall trees while maintaining a balance and at the same time plucking betel nut fruits from those swaying trees. The spice plantations are managed by people who have comprehensive knowledge and excel in technical knowhow of farming spices. Some major spices produced in these plantations are: * Black pepper * Cardamom * Nutmeg * Vanilla * Cinnamon * Cloves *Chillies * Betel nut * Coriander.

Cavelossim

The Nest is located in a beautiful and green condominium of around 70 villas, called Luisa by the Sea, located in South Goa, on the banks of the River Sal. The Cavelossim beach is across the road from the condominium, and is only a 5 minute stroll away from the villa itself.

One of the more famous beaches in India, the Cavelossim beach of Goa will give you the experience of a lifetime when you come here for a vacation. Located between the Arabian Sea and the Sal River, with 25km of unbroken fine sand, the Cavelossim beach is the ideal place to enjoy your vacation.


BEACH ACTIVITIES: You and your children can enjoy cycling on the beach, swimming or splashing about in the warm waters, water sports like parasailing and jet skiing, or simply playing in the sand. There are boat tours that will take you out into the sea for a few hours to spot dolphins.


EATING OUT AND NIGHTLIFE: During the tourist season from November to April, there are several restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walking radius, many beach shacks serving fresh and absolutely delicious food, and some highly recommended restaurants like Fisherman's Wharf within a 2 kilometer radius. They all provide an excellent selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine – Goan, North India, South Indian and Continental.

The Radisson Hotel, with its famous nightclub Titos, is almost right outside the gates of Luisa by the Sea and the starred Hotels The Leela and the Holiday Inn are just 2 kilometres away.


DOLPHIN AND SUNSET CRUISES: Cavelossim is famous for its dolphin spotting tours and expeditions. One can also go on sunset cruises on the Sal River. Feel the magic take over as you feel completely at peace with yourself when you see the sun set at a distance and the water gets painted golden orange. Dolphin cruises in the sea are fun and you can be sure to spot a dolphin or two cruising along your boat. If you are lucky enough, they can come real close and allow you to touch them.


SHOPPING: There are several shops and shacks for groceries, medicines, liquor, clothes, trinkets, souvenirs, and whatever else a person would normally need on a holiday, within a five minute stroll. Several tailors provide material and stitching for Indian and Western outfits delivered at short notice.


TRANSPORT:
Cycles and scooters are available for hire from many sources just outside Luisa by the Sea.

Taxis are available at the gate of Luisa by the Sea to take you all over Goa.

And if you want to experience the local bus, it operates at 30 minute intervals and takes you to Madgaon. For longer journeys, Madgaon offers many buses to take you all over Goa.

“disappointed!”

Reviewed 2 Mar 2017

Ideal location, with lovely garden. Short walk to the beach and restaurants and a pool just by the villa (although we didn't use it as prefer the breeze you get on the beach) Unfortunately the villa was dirty and in need of updating. Paint work was filthy, sockets were hanging off walls in both bedrooms, net curtains which were supposed to be white were grey (with dirt), one curtain in the second bedroom didn't even fit the window, bathroom tiles and shower curtains were mouldy and toilet seats coming off! The air conditioning in the main bedroom which is positioned just above the bed blows out soot, therefore the bed, and whoever is in it gets covered! I had contact with the owner Vikas Suri via email following a complaint I made, however, after listing the above issues never heard from him again! We looked at other villas on the complex during our stay which were far more superior (and cheaper), so this poor standard is not typical of all villas on the complex. We will return to Luisa by the Sea, just not this villa!

Owner's reply: Hi Sam, I'm so sorry that you had a sub-par experience at the Nest, especially since you had stayed in Feb 2015 and had a great experience then. I can only imagine how let down you must feel. I also apologise for this late response - since I was travelling in Europe, when I tried to log in from a remote location with poor phone and internet reception, I got locked out of my TripAdvisor account, and had to sort it out on my return. On hearing your complaint on various issues - all justified I must add - I did push my people to fix the problems quickly. However, in the languid and laid back response levels of service technicians and handymen in Goa, things take their own sweet time. But there is no excuse for why the easily fixed things like cleanliness and dirty curtains were there in the first place. For me, it is very important that each guest has a great experience - that is what leads to repeat bookings! Therefore, as soon as I received your complaint, I immediately blocked the listing of Nest on all TripAdvisor and similar sites for any further bookings, till I personally go to Goa and fix the problems before the start of the next tourist season. I have also pulled up the villa caretaker and staff. As a small token of my regret at your below-expectation experience at Nest, I would like to offer you an extra 2 days free, or a 10% discount, on your next stay with us, either at the Nest, or at our bigger 3-Bedroom riverfront villa Siesta listed at http://www.holidaylettings.co.uk/rentals/cavelossim/2517963 (Siesta is also available at lower prices for 4 persons or less). My apologies once again, and I do hope to hear from you for future stays. Best Regards Vikas Suri

“Quality family time........”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2015

The Nest is set in fantastic well kept gardens and is great for watching all the beautiful birds. Your within easy walking distance to the beach, Watson's supermarket, great restaurants. The village has everything you need. There are normally taxis waiting near the gated entrance.The nest is a well kept villa. (Has the odd high cob web, but I'm a dust freak, my Sister in law didn't notice) It has everything you need, comfortable, peace and tranquillity. Frankie, is on hand to sort any problems out. We were lucky enough to meet the owners, who shared there local knowledge of restaurants, nothing is too much trouble. All in all we had a fantastic time, would have no problem recommending this villa to families with children or couples. Disappointed it's booked when we return next month, but we will be back. Thanks for everything. Regards Tina & Graham.

Owner's reply: Glad you had a good time Tina and Graham. It was lovely to meet with you personally. And that odd cobweb high up is gonna go :) Look forward to having you back. Cheers Vikas
