About Arun Sondhi

We are an Indian family living in London, England. We love spending time in South Goa as the weather is fantastic, the food delicious and the people really friendly. We try to go as often as time allows but in order to pay for the up-keep we rent out our home.

Arun Sondhi purchased this villa in 2006

Why Arun Sondhi chose Benaulim

It is near the 5 star Taj Exotica Hotel with all its amenities including a 9 hole golf course. It is part of a complex set in a quite, tranquil location. Benaulim beach is one of the finest in all of India, part of a 30 km golden sand stretch. The beach facilities include life guard, water sports and beach shacks with sun beds.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is fully equipped with everything you would need. We call it home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa for 2 weeks in January 2015 for a family of 5 adults.

This Villa totally lived up to our expectations. It was clean and tastefully decorated and the services provided were excellent just as it was advertised.

It was literally going from home to home with all the facilities provided including a washing machine and dishwasher. The maid service and our contact who lived opposite the Villa really made our stay very comfortable. Nothing was a problem for them.

We used the pool on a couple of occasions and it was really heaven to have the pool almost all to ourselves.

The beach was a 15 minute walk away and so was the local supermarket which sold everything.

If you fancied taking a bus ride into Margao, the bus stop was located just outside the supermarket, though we used taxis and Rickshaws frequently . There is a taxi rank just outside the complex.

The complex I must add is Gated one with security.

I would definitely recommend this Villa and hope it will be available on my next visit.

MANY THANKS to all of you who made our stay a very pleasant one.

Wonderful family villa

  • 5 of 5

We went to this villa with a family of 6 adults and 2 children.

This villa is beautiful, it is very clean and decorated well. All rooms were good and there are enough showers and ensuites for everyone. The kitchens had the essentials needed for a holiday including a washing machine!

The complex it is in is lovely and felt safe with my 2 young children. The communal pool was nice although a bit cold at first! However it was never busy which was great for the children, there was a children's pool aswell. Towels were provided by the owners of the villa.

However the owners of the villa are what this villa simply fantastic, they lived close by and were so incredibly helpful and kind! this enhanced our stay greatly.

Thank you so much!!!!!!

Kind regards

Payal khandelwal and family
