Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Dave

Sorry for the delay in writing to you. Just to say we both had a wonderful time and your aparment was lovely.

Thank you again and perhaps look forward to visiting your apartment again.

Kind regards


Dear Dave,

I was going through the owners direct website and came across your property where we stayed in Feb last.

It suddenly struck me that I had not said thanks to you for all the wonderful arrangements at your apartment. It was a great vacation for us. There are all the amenities that one can think of in the apartment and it is very well kept as well.

I thank you and Sarah for all the support.

I would certainly visit the property again.

Thanks a ton


An excellent experience! Lovely, clean and well furnished apartment. Centrally located-Tito's, Mambo's and Britto's are walking distance! Sarah is lovely, warm and a very busy person! There's a gorgeous pool in the complex and the neighbours are quiet but friendly. I'll definitely be coming back for a visit with my friends :)


December 2013

Dear Dave, Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in Goa. The apartment was super and we enjoyed, observing the squirrels and listening to the music coming from the temple. Calangute beach is beautiful but crowdy, so we took a motorbike, launched ourselves into Indian traffic (horn-horn) and explored the more northern beaches, Vagator and Little Vagator were just perfect! Visited Old Goa (lots of churches!) and of course the Anjuna flea market... Also, the trip to Hampi (Hospet) was long (7h by train) but certainly worth it! Very special! And all that tasty food everywhere...njammy!

In a nutshell, we are still dreaming about it and certainly hope to return there. Thanks for everything! Greetings from Belgium, Nadine & Paul

Hello Dave, We are Annika and Janek from Estonia, visited your apartment from Jan 27 to Feb 5. Apartment was so beautiful. Many many thanks to you and Sarah too. Best regards
