THE HALL CUM DINING
This space makes you feel fresh with enough day light streaming in with the sunrise and the cool air gliding in through the French windows in the night which have a mosquito mesh to keep the circulation. All windows have the mosquito mesh.
With the living room furniture and TV cabinet along with its shelves in tune with the generous dining table like a TT table ;) and the chairs, it makes a family comfortable and feel the value for the money paid.
In summers the scorching heat would be offset by the air cons cooling the place to hilt.
The fans in place would take care of you in case of a power cut with the power back-up in place.
The pretty studio kitchen tucked in the corner helps you cook for your family n kids. Purified drinking water from the Aquaguard makes your stay hassle-free. Careful thought has gone into the number and type of utensils and cutlery chosen to make the person handling the kitchen smile happily. (Pl find list of utensils and equipment right at the bottom of the page) - Soon to be added.
It's a cosy space running along the length of the apt from where the sun streams in and the night cools you. The potted plants give you a feeling of connect with your own house.
The washing machine is placed in utility area of the balcony with ample provision for drying clothes. The laundry bag, washing machine and the ironing stand are kept here to organise the laundry well. There's also a wall mounted shelf above the ironing stand to keep the pressed clothes.
Everything in the apt right from furniture to decor has been hand picked to ensure quality, user-friendliness and style. Linen, towels and upholstery were thoughtfully bought by color-coordinating.
The sheer curtains add elegance to the hall and the bed room.
THE BEDROOM N BATH
In the bedroom we got a three door cupboard with a full length mirror made of which the bigger side is given to guests with a lock. The silky sheers and the heavy curtains give you the privacy and cosiness you crave after a long day of excitement and fun in the Goan sun.
Take your pick of the book from the assorted collection we've kept there and curl up in the comfortable bed to a restful sleep.
The modern bathroom with its huge mirror and hot water shower washes away the sand and the sweat and helps you step out feeling energised!
GOAgaga Arpora is located in the complex Aqua Grandiosa which has a total of 48 apts divided in three blocks A, B, C and enclosed in the same area.
This complex has elevator, well maintained pool, and canopy style enclosure with stone benches and a kids' play area with a few park swings and things.
I would say the lawn and the pool area is very beautiful and the stone benches and marble tables fixed in this area makes it a perfect place to idle and take the breeze in.
The gym cubicle is only getting ready.
Interaction with guests
I like to share a personal connect with all my guests as much as it's possible practically without being intrusive. I send out welcome correspondence with tips on having a good time. This becomes especially useful for FIRST TIME TRAVELLERS to Goa.
I am available on phone calls and texts during working hours and on emergencies after nine pm. On the site my staff is available as contact points and over a period of a few years they've acquired the skills to interact with guests efficiently. However, pl note it's a self catering apt.
I'm not posted in Goa.
I found the location very desirable and that was the first reason for me to consider an apt in this complex. One can walk to Arpora jn or the opposite direction in the Club Cabana side for eateries. Grocery stores and a decent supermarket (LOKESH MINI MART) are right there at the foot of the complex.
Aqua Grandiosa entrance is just 800 mts from Club Cabana. From the entrance it would be only 200 mts inside in a modern looking yet rustic area with high rises and smaller houses around.
The distance from the beaches would 2.5 kms from Baga beach and 3.5 kms from Calangute. There's a shorter route via Baba Cafe. One could say both these beaches are fairly within 3-4 kms. The Saturday Night Bazaar would be 1 km. The Arpora junction is walkable distance of about the same as 700 mts from the complex in the direction opposite to Club Cabana.
Resort Mello Rosa is right opposite to our complex.
Starlite Restau at Arpora jn turned out to be my favourite. They offer fresh, cost effective meals and a great place for local sea catch. They're open for lunch and dinner.
Twenty Three and Sai are two different restaurants that look like twins perched side by side right at the Baga beach road diversion, short of Arpora Jn. They have great food and karaoke etc. They serve all cuisines and food is very good. They're open for all meals.
Needless to say, there's an array of eateries and shops cluttering Arpora jn including a Catholic Chapel where mass is held. The eateries are all good and ready for a pick to eat.
Fruit/veggie stalls and supermarkets along with a live chicken stall dot the Arpora jn lane in case you want to buy and cook at the apt.
The street address is as follows: Aqua Grandiosa, Opp Resort Mello Rosa, Next to Heritage Exotica, Mainat Bhatti, Arpora, Bardez, North Goa - 403518

Over a period of past four years I've realised hosting is about building relationships and cherishing them.
With every ticking month and every guest who leaves GOAgaga, I look around for some bit of info that's new for the following guest. It's challenging and immensely gratifying to deal with a complex web of multiple cultures and personalities and therein lies the lifeline of GOAgaga.
There are some big passions and unfulfilled dreams. GOAgaga is my baby step to realizing one of them!
I'm in love with the PROCESS!
Hope you've a good stay! If disappointed in some way do let me know because everything can be fixed with a bit of nice communication in GOAgaga!!
