Villa overview - owner's description

This beautiful villa is located in the charming village of Saligao just minutes away from the beaches of Calungute. It has been simply decorated with antique pieces to retain the charm of the heritage property. It has three ensuite bedrooms (one with a twin bedroom loft attached). The house is set in a luxurious tropical garden with mango, chickoo and guava trees and has a designer in-ground swimming pool. The house has soaring ceilings, a large wrap around porch (perfect for relaxing!) and tons of character and atmosphere.
This house was bought and restored by a Canadian / Indian /Danish family who use it for their own holidays so it is (and feels like) a cherished home. The house comes with a housekeeper to take care of guests. He is a good cook and will gladly take care of meal preparation and purchase groceries for guests if required. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, TV and DVD player, CD player. It's also baby friendly and has some baby basics (crib, booster seat, stroller etc) along with a swing set and sandbox.
The house has ample living space with a huge sitting room, a separate dining room, and multiple outdoor spaces to relax and dine. It’s the perfect base for a beach holiday as it’s minutes away from some of Goa’s most famous beaches and best restaurants.

From Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom Apr 2012

My family (10 members) spent a week at this lovely villa and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The house is well maintained and very spacious. Kids had a good time in the pool while the adults relaxed in the tranquil gardens. Salam was an excellent cook and always willing to help. Would most definitely visit again and highly recommend this lovely villa and the team that runs it.


From Wirral, United Kingdom Mar 2008

Excellent location. Close to Candolim, Calangute and Baga and yet far enough away to remain an oasis of peace and tranquility. The house, gardens and pool are superb; exceeding our wildest expectations. What really made the difference though was Salam, the housekeeper. A great host and excellent cook who looked after our every need, including the speedy facilitation of medical treatment for one of our party. Over the years we've traveled frequently, but never returned to a destination. Why would you, when there is so much more in the world to see? But Goa, Villa Salmona and most of all Salam have changed that. We've only been back two days and we're already planning our return.


From Zuerich, Switzerland Feb 2008

We loved the place and the staff was terrific! Lovely location not too far from the beaches but far enough to escape the noise. The Cook, Salaam is an extremely friendly and forthcoming chap. All in all - a great holiday experience for my little family and myself. Thanks a lot.


From London

The villa is beautiful,an idyllic space and now even better with the new kitchen and a/c in the bedrooms.With Salaam(house keeper and chef) being there made the whole experience that much more pleasurable,and like having a 2nd home in Goa.We will definately be coming back and recommend it wholeheartedly.


From London

The housekeeper/chef is brilliant and definately makes the property worth returning for-I am not sure I would otherwise.


From New Delhi

The house is beautiful, both architectually and in decor, as is the landscaping. It is very spacious, and had plenty of room for our party of seven. We visited in April, and it was just too hot for our baby. I hadnt realized there was no air conditioning, though I should have, as its a heritage house. I would also recommend new mosquito nets the one in my room had a lot of holes.

The housekeeper was amazing he and my three year old son bonded immediately. He may even be greater than the beauty of the house itself.

I would love to visit again, but would do so in January or February.

Reply from Mountain Adventures

Hi - thanks for this feedback! To make the house more comfortable in the hot season we added split ACs to all the bedrooms (not to the great hall and common rooms which remain open to the tile roof ventilation). We think this makes the house even more comfortable. All mosquito nets have been replaced. We also completely remodeled the kitchen (as in photos). The lovely think about heritage properties is that its always a work in progress!

Just back. We had a wonderful time. The house is gorgeous and the pool was a godsent in the incredible heat. We loved the neighborhood and the beach in the north. When we went to Baga beach we were just amazed that anyone would fly from Europe to sit in a parking lot of beach umbrellas! The dolphin trip, walking around Panjim and collecting shells on the beach were all great. Thanks for providing us with the perfect getaway for our family. Love,Jackie
