About this listing

Villa1 has been our private holiday home so long &we've had the good fortune of drawing on some fantastic memories with our dearest friends & family here!would be ideal if you're looking to get away from it all albeit keeping a loose grip on reality!

The space

We think idyllic for couples looking for r&r,friends on a reunion and *especially* parents with young ones:)))-this from personal experience as our young explorers spent nearly their entire summer holidays here-keeping busy with the outdoors,jumping into the pool,beach hopping,playing family board games & plenty of cricket!

The villa is 700 mtrs off the arterial Calangute Mapusa road.That makes beach hopping,dining,sightseeing,traipsing around Goa(!)extremely accessible while the house is safely & securely tucked within a village. You may expect low decibel levels & peacock calls. To your advantage is a private garden with plenty of fresh air,sunshine & paddy field views.

The villa is staffed on the outside by day keeping it private.Daily housekeeping is included.Security is round the clock & our errand boy Tony can be a real help should you not want to step out for those staples.

We think "Its a home meant to be enjoyed not just lived in..."

We've had the good fortune of travelling parts of the world with our young ones & are aware that this can get tricky sometimes,like for eg: when you need to provide a head count at hotels-"7 people is a tight fit for 3 rooms" or "your large group is a nuisance to the other peace seeking guests"etc...We've learnt friends & family groups require more than just generic hotels,need free movement,nonrestrictive spaces-where they can can let loose,play,lounge,simply catch up.Its what we did!Young ones are most welcome here!in fact they'll love it,just as ours did spending the summers here!There's plenty of outdoors to explore,pool to swim in,walks to take,cricket/football to play or simply potter around the garden.The house is spacious enough to accommodate additional toddlers/children travelling with you.'No pressure' is the mantra...

Guest access

Entire home is at your disposal.The garden is private.Outdoor (shared) pool, gymnasium,table tennis & american pool is shared by 11 more villas.You won't be dashing into many people though,as this community is primarily occupied by private owners & for non commercial use.Hence the homely atmosphere.
*Please note that the pool bathing timings are limited to 9pm.
*Kindly note-There is no lifeguard by the swimming pool.We advise that children & non swimmers using the pool always be accompanied by an adult.
Additionally,If you are travelling with private staff such as cook,nanny,driver kindly-
~intimate us
~include them in your head count
~please note that the existing bedding is for the use of our guests ONLY.Therefore please carry rollaway beds for the staff's use.

Interaction with guests

I always make it a point to fine tune & coordinate your needs prior to your arrival irrespective of which city or country I'm in at that point! We shuttle between Goa, Pune & Mumbai and that takes up some time.
We don't live here but have our on site supervisor & outdoor staff who can communicate the necessary upon your arrival, help navigate you home & assist you with settling in at the earliest.
We do visit from time to time though to ensure that the home remains in pristine condition for our guests' next vacation!

The villa has lovely decor with nice collection of furniture and quiet surroundings. The place is little difficult to locate (can blame (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps for that :)) for the first time but Mr. Sanjay quickly helped with that. Location is fairly close by beaches and restaurants, provided you have own vehicle. Kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed barbecue in backyards. Our host was keen to check if we were comfortable. Overall a wonderful trip. :)

For my wife's birthday we planned a surprise trip to Goa along with a few of our friends. After searching for a long time, we decided to go ahead with Villa 1. And we are glad we did! Though the villa is located a little off the main road, the directions provided by Lee (the owner) once you confirm the booking is spot on and we reached our villa without having to call anyone or having to ask anyone for directions. The villa surroundings are calm, peaceful and serene. Something that ticked all our boxes! The villa is very pretty, and the interiors are very tastefully done up. Lee, though may not available in person , is always available on call/msg to help you out. Right from an early check-in, to suggesting places that showed football in Goa to even allowing us to leave our luggage at the villa on the check out date so that we could come back later in the evening and pick up our luggage, Lee was very accommodating of our requests. The car rental options provided by Lee are really helpful and helped us in getting a self-drive car on rent, within a couple of hours of us reaching! A little after checking in, we hear the doorbell and we find the supervisor standing at the door with a cake. This was not expected at all and a lovely gesture by Lee! Also, when we mentioned to Tony (caretaker) that the TV was not working, he was there next morning with someone and got the connection fixed. These are the things that make a difference in a holiday and we all really appreciate it! The only negative, if we could really even call it that, is the lack of toiletries in the villa. On the whole, we had a ball of a time. The villa is lovely and Lee, is very welcoming and helpful. Cant wait to be back!!! Highly recommended! Cheers! P.S.: The cake was yummmmmy!!! :)

This was my first Airbnb booking. And boy, was I pleasantly surprised! Even though she wasn't there personally, Lee, our hostess, was extremely gracious and helpful. Right from the moment I sent her the first message to the last conversation I had with her, she made sure that we, a group of seven, were comfortable and well taken care of. From the phone numbers of reliable taxi drivers to what to eat and where to go, Lee had all the bases covered. Coming to the villa, which was tastefully done up and located in a quiet area, was exactly the sort of place that we wanted. With greenery all around and most of the popular beaches within easy driving distance, our stay turned out to be even better than we thought. The kitchen was fully equipped, the rooms spacious and clean, the bathrooms spick and span, parking space ample, and the security adequate. All in all, we were very comfortable, and we had a blast. Highly recommended!

It would be our pleasure! Appreciate your intent to recommend us to others :) Best! Lee

Its a nice house, i wish it was managed better. The owner is nice but she was not around when we went there. Please note check out time is 10 AM which is not convenient when you are on holidays, i missed checking it at the time of booking

Response from Lee:
I am flummoxed and afraid your review is misleading and a result of taking no interest in your booked property in the first place Utkrisht. Your public & private feedback seems a culmination of not having read my page before booking, or reading ANY of my private 'communication'. Additionally,it is apalling that you find it acceptable to blame your host for your shortcomings. Allow me to help bring to your notice what you should have read in the first place.All the information under was available to you before you made the booking & you had ample time to clarify prior to arrival - 1)You expected me to be present when my private mail and home page states I do not reside here AT ALL TIMES.You were informed by me, were you not, that i wont be present on your dates. My absence during your stay is no reflection of my commitment to my guests or the quality of your stay. I object to your misguided representation of the situation and management of my property. 2)Check in & Check out times reflect on my page as do they for all hosts. Most guests take that into account before booking or better still they communicate with me to query if they would like to request an early come or a late go. But you didn't bother with this 'trivia' and instead found it convenient again to blame this shortfall upon your host.Splendid. 3) Your accuracy feedback says wifi? Why i believe it was available to you at all times. 4)you comment in your private feedback that towels & bed linen were not changed everyday. AGAIN, my page clearly states that linen is changed every 4th day for guests staying over 4 days. We are a single unit property not a hotel. I am a hostess and me and my staff are not hotel employees that you find in a subordinately convenient position to blame. Your host cannot be held accountable for your shortcomings Utkrisht. Pay attention maybe? Most guests do... Also i am 3 coffee mugs & 2 tall glasses short you wouldn't happen to know anything about that would you. Disconcertingly, Lee

My husband and I had gone to celebrate our anniversary with our siblings and friends. The average age of our group was 25. We were 8 of us. The location is nice, away from the hustle and bustle but again, not that far away from the clubs, which is great. The house is exactly how it is mentioned. The rooms are big and spacious and so are the bathrooms. The place is neat and tidy – I am a cleanliness freak btw! The helpers are also cooperative, attentive and quick in resolving your queries or requirements. Lee came to know 2 days' before that it was our anniversary and when we reached there, she already had a cake and a bottle of champagne kept ready for us. We really enjoyed the stay.
