About the property

Spacious Apartments in Benaulim, South Goa - 10 Mins Walk To The Beach

Ghatswood comprises 6 luxury apartments. These apartments have been finished to a very high specification, incorporating several architectural firsts in Goa. These include a light/ventilation shaft running through the centre of the building, which captures the breeze at roof level and ensures constant air circulation throughout the apartments. Ventilation is further enhanced by large sash windows at the front of the apartments which allow cool air to enter below and warm air to escape above. Situated just 900m from the beach. All apartments are fitted with air conditioning.

"Dear Adam

Our stay at Ghatswood over Christmas could not have been better. John and Matilda were very helpful and attended to our every request.

We hired bicycles locally and so were able to ride out each day for provisions - to Colva chicken and fish market and also to the local fruit and veg stalls. We also loved riding out to see some of the more remote beaches. Ghatswood is in an ideal location because you can easily walk to the local restaurants and shops. Cooking in the apartment was a dream as there is plenty of kitchen equipment provided and the gas range is great for cooking on. This is the first time in many trips to Goa that we actually preferred staying in and chilling out in the flat as opposed to trying out all of the local restaurants. We are both looking forward to spending our Christmas holiday with you again this year."

"Dear Adam

We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed our Christmas stay at Ghatswood. The apartments are really luxurious and spacious and the pool as clear as crystal. John was delightful and nothing was too much trouble for him. Our pick up to and from the airport was brilliant. Being part of local life is lovely and we fell in love with Benaulim village and Sernabatim beach. We wholeheartedly recommend Ghatswood to anyone viewing this site and we will definitely be returning as soon as we can."

"Hi Adam, We flew back last night & coming to terms with traditional Christmas weather! We wanted to say thank you to you & the staff for a lovely relaxing stay. The place is great; so spacious & immaculately clean & well maintained & we really enjoyed the location & feeling part of village life. The daily stroll to the beach was fascinating with so much to see - as well as saying hello to everyone. Happy Christmas & we really hope to return at some point. Best wishes Caroline"

About Adam Baker

I love spending time in Goa where the people are so friendly, the weather is fabulous and the food is the stuff of legend. At Ghatswood I wanted to create a little sanctuary, a peaceful retreat where the facilities of 'home' are nestled amongst the goings on of daily village life in a quiet corner of India.

Adam Baker purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Adam Baker chose South Goa

In 2006 there seemed to be a gap in the market, forcing visitors to choose between luxury surroundings at 5 star prices, or low price cohabitation with some of nature's greatest triumphs. Ghatswood was built with a simple philosophy in mind; to provide simple, clean, light, spacious accommodation which enhance the Goa experience. Ghatswood's proximity to the beach, the shops and restaurants and transport links, whilst retaining a sense of tranquility and seclusion, makes it unique and the perfect place to enjoy your stay in Goa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Adam, we returned from Goa on Monday having had a very happy time in Ghatswood. Suite 3 was exactly as advertised, of a very high standard in a very natural environment all of which made our holiday. If it is possible we would like to book suite 3 for Christmas 2010.



Dear Adam, we had a great holiday and your apartment was fantastic. John tells me that you are having A/C installed this year and this will make it even better. We would like to book again for this year in the same apartment, could you please let me know if this will be ok.



Hi Adam,



Just a very quick note to say we had a fantastic holiday in Goa and loved the appartment, great spot and great facilities.



I am sure we will be in touch about another trip next year!



Many thanks,

Nick.

I went to Ghatswood last Xmas , stayed for 2 weeks and had an amazing time. The apartment was beautiful, clean and had everything you could possibly need. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Very close to the beaches and loads of restaurant and shops near by. Very good value for money. Panning to go back in November again with a big group :)
