Description

The space

Comfort, class and good service can be affordable.

THE APT
GOAgaga Aqua is a one BHK apt spacious, fully air-conditioned and furnished, with a well-equipped kitchen. It's on the second floor of B block in the complex Aqua Grandiosa, which has a total of 48 apts in three blocks. The elevator takes you to this floor which has four apts, two on either side.

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 KITCHEN
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.

THE BALCONY
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!

Guest access

THE COMPLEX
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.

The neighborhood

LOCALITY
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.

DISTANCES
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.

LOCAL FAVORITES
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.

1. Ginza was amazing host. This is first time with Airbnb. I did not have any prior expectation about bnb, she took care of all the doubts and questions I had. We were in constant communication before I booked and after I checked out. 2. Apart from questions, she also curated a big list of eat outs, sight seeing that one can do. I took a print out (20+ pages) and made my iternary based on that. 3. Room is clean and expected our expectation is all sense. Both my daughters loved it. 4. Swimming pool was clean - kids loved it and used it a lot. 5. We found the kitchen extremely functional, if you are coming with family, you will have everything you need for. We were new to induction base stove but learning curve was very small. 6. Baga beach is near by (2km) but very crowded. We prefer other beaches. 7. Staffs are humble and understanding. 8. Parking is safe (that was one my worry, as I was driving my own car). There will always security guard and community is closed. 9. Downside - map did not locate the place correctly, so if you map Raj Asia Hospitality it will be easy to find. - Super market nearby are not all equipped but if you have car/bike then it shouldn't be problem. Overall I rate our trip as "AWESOME" - thanks to Ginza for taking care of us.

Response from Ginza:
Thank you Kaushik, it was a pleasure hosting you! Dropping a pin to Aqua Grandiosa or Resort Mello Rosa should bring you right to the place or even Heritage Exotica. I'm never able to locate the map correctly on Airbnb and that's why I send directions separately. May be I would persist in seeking Airbnb help in resolving this.

Goagaga is the coziest and the most value for money place available in goa. It has a superb location in arpora away from all the party/road noises. Quiet place with a very homely feel right from the moment you walk in. The home has every amenity one would need. I don't think I would stay anywhere else in goa anymore. Ginza is a beautiful host. She helped us with everything, from making us an itinerary to sorting places to eat. She kept in touch with us before the trip, during and after the trip to ensure we were comfortable. Niranjan her man Friday is also a great guy. Very prompt with helping us with whatever we needed. Thanks for a wonderful trip and making our stay feel like home.

Thank you for your lovely words! Especially for your private review. It made me immensely happy because I really do want to make my difference as a responsible host, instead of measuring out each service against money. And special thanks for your good words on my staff.

One of the best places we have visited in Goa is Goagaga.. Thank you Ginza for making our stay at Goa a memorable one.. All of us including my parents loved your hospitality, attention to detail for small small requirement of guests are really commendable..!! And not to mention your apartment is really beautiful..!! After stay at Goagaga, we have visited Club mahindra and to be honest, we didn't liked it much there compared to the services, support, and the feel we had staying at your place, we really felt at home when we were at Goagaga.. Goagaga is indeed a place Par Excellence..!!

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!!
