The price and the service were outstanding! We were out of the country for one month and we did not want to spent much money to park the car..we found this them and it was the best ever! Highly reccomended!
There's nothing like feeling the breeze in your hair and watching the whole big panorama unfold all around you -- until the rain comes, or you get a strangely-patterned sunburn on your head...
If you want to get away from the big hotel resort formula and see the real side of Goa this is perfect. The house is well equipped, stylish and has incredible views of the river. It is an oasis away from tourists but near enough to jump a taxi to the restaurants and bars. There are two girls who come for a few hours in the morning and look after things, make breakfast or evening meals if you wish. The food is better than the restaurants (which are exceptional) and the omelettes and sheeha in the morning are fantastic. Try Nafisa's prawn curry for dinner, best in Goa.The girls are unobtrusive, very helpful and accomodating and keep the place spotlessly clean.There is a wonderful decked area on the banks of the river from which you can watch the world go by and get some shade and a nice breeze.The gardens get the sun all day and dawn and dusk are spectacular. The garden is visited by some lovely birds. Kingfishers etc and you can watch the river birds hunting for fish. If you don't do crowds of people Rajbag beach is ideal and in the evening the bar/restaurant shacks on Patnem (a five minute taxi ride) are perfect.The owner is Chim who is on hand should you need anything and is very helpful, friendly and nothing is a problem to her.We have had two wonderful weeks of lazing around and enjoying the house and the local area. Highly recommended and would go back.
I've always been impressed with the number of really funny comedians of all persuasions that play gigs here. Yes, as others say, some of the comedians don't get as positive an audience reaction as others. But I think that has to be the case. It sure is on Comedy Central's various stand-up comedy shows. The required purchases aren't a problem because the comedy club does a good job of providing food/drink that you're likely to enjoy.
Visited only to have drinks and enjoy the view. The cocktails were on the expensive side (750 thb for one) but completely worth it. Usually am disappointed with cocktails in high end bars, but these were amazing. They were strong but fruity - brilliantly balanced. Especially liked the molecular gastronomy twist in the drinks. The view was obviously great. Little touristy though with people posing and taking snaps
We went as a group of 6 women with a Groupon deal. The tables are well placed. Parking can be done on the street around the corner. The only suggestion is to have more varieties of food since you are required to buy a minimum amount of food. Overall, an evening well spent.
Make reservations! We laughed til tears were spilling down our cheeks. Some comedians are better than others. If you sit up front be prepared to be part of a comedians joke. Yes, it is for adults; cussing will be used. We will definitely be back.
