First class accommodation

  • 5 of 5

What can I say... The accommodation was excellent..

The owners Steve and Vicky we're lovely people, from our first email to meeting them they went out of there way to make sure we arrived safe by arranging a taxi for us to meeting us at the apartment 2 hours late at 6am. There's went through everything, how things worked and if we had a problem told us to contact them. We did have a little problem with the new TV and they came and sorted it straight away. Other than that everything was first class. The apartment was very bright and airy ( not like some of the apartments we have stayed in in the highland.) Vicky came in to clean once a week. We couldn't find anything to fault about these apartments and made our holiday so much nicer knowing we were coming back to lovely accomidation we will recommend to all our friends and will definitely use these again.

Thankyou Steve and Vicky you were lovely host

Perfect Gem

  • 5 of 5

This was my 6th visit to Goa, and this was the best accommodation I have ever had, Steve and Vicky were at the apartment to meet us at 2.00am and took the time to explain where everything was and how to operate the appliances, everything in the apartment work well even the washing machine. The accommodation was just as they said it was on there web-site.

Thank you to you both for making our holiday so special.

honest review

  • 3 of 5

Steve and Vicky were friendly they met us on arrival at 5-30 in the morning, the apartment is bright and clean , Vicky changes the beds

and cleans the apartment every Sunday,

In my Opinion I would question the re-tiling of the bathrooms, some of the kitchen appliances need attention,

The apartment is advertised as a top second floor apartment,

It is a top third floor apartment plus ground floor, there are

six flights of stairs (59 steps) to climb to reach the apartment,

I have health problems, we did check before we booked that it was

a second floor apartment, it caused me some health issues. especially when it got so hot having so many stairs to climb.

The apartment is well located for all Candolim has to offer.

Owner's Response: Dear Tippertim,I'm not sure which apartment you are referring to,as our newly refurbished apartment which you booked is patently on the 2nd floor as described in the title deeds. None of the tiles in both bathrooms are broken,cracked,misaligned ,or stained and are of a quality comparable with any similar product in the UK. ( see photo ) . As the apartment was refurbished and equipped,the kitchen equipment (washing machine, hob, kettle, grill,toaster etc) with the exception of the microwave,were new. In fact,the only items we found to be broken subsequent to your departure were the induction hob,electric socket through an attempt to force a different sized plug and the commode seat. Nevertheless,we refunded your breakage deposit in good faith at your request ,before you left. Vicky asked you when it would be convenient to clean and change the linen. We then came back at your request to bring a bed for the terrace, we returned as you could not open the bed,we returned as you could not operate the Sky tv remote, we returned as you were not sure how to operate the washing machine,we returned when you complained of a power outage,when in fact the security had not yet turned on the lights in the stairwell,organised your transport and helped with your luggage.On each occasion we asked,as we do with all guests,if everything was ok,to which you always replied 'perfect'. We are truly sorry that you had health issues,but it advisable to address any problems immediately and not after returning home. I would also add that as it was our first season with this new apartment, we offered you a discount plus 3 free days . We sincerely hope that you have a happy and positive experience on your next holiday, but feel obliged to respond to what we consider to be misinformation which may reflect on us negatively.
