Perfect home away from home
on Apr 12, 2019
My girlfriend and I began our backpacking adventure in India, we stayed at Baga villa guest house as it was highly recommended to us. We arrived there with high hopes and it truly succeeded them!
The owners, jimmy and Heidi, are fantastic hosts and now good friends that we know we will stay in contact with!
They made us feel extremely welcome with their “nothing is impossible” attitude! This was perfect for starting our travelling adventure as they created a safe and peaceful atmosphere in a popular and sometimes crazy destination.
Baga Villa is perfectly situated in order to cater for types of trips. For those who seek relaxation, the beach is a 5 minute walk and for those who seek thrills, Titos Lane is a short walk away and the night markets are a small taxi fare away! There is also a great restaurant with lovely staff just a 10 second walk away!
Jimmy is fully of advise and wisdom and went over and above to help us plan and even book flights,trains etc. This took a huge amount of stress off of our shoulders as he knew the area like the back of his hand. We cannot thank him enough for his help and advice!
Heidi is brilliant. For us, being young travellers, she was our mother figure away from home. She was extremely attentive and thoughtful which gives such a warm homely feeling towards Baga Villa.
The boys that work there are great! They helped to show us the local banks and markets in order to make our trips to them easier. They’re both very down to earth and hardworking boys who are a credit to Baga Villa.
Everyday we ate breakfast outside in the seating area with the Fan and perfectly laid tables. Tea, coffee and water were all available before, during and after our lovely meal. There was a menu available however if there was anything specific we wanted, then we knew that Heidi would have gone out of her way to fulfil our needs!
Overall our experience at Baga Villa was perfect and 5 stars doesn’t give it enough credit!
We would certainly recommend it to any people looking for accommodation within the area, it’s suitable for families, couples, holiday makers and backpackers!
Thankyou Jimmy, Heidi and the boys for an amazing experience!
Harry and Laura!

Christmas and new year in Baga
on Jan 11, 2019
We found Baga villa last year when looking for somewhere to stay for this Christmas, and we are so glad we did. Jimmy and Heidi are the best hosts, nothing is too much trouble, if anything is wrong just mention it and it will be sorted out. Heidi strived to make our stay the best ever, she gave us Christmas chocolates. Jimmy has some great advice for the best restaurants. beach shacks and also getting around and he also sorted out a good deal on our taxi back to the airport. The 2 boys working for them cooked some really good breakfasts. We recommend the freshly made pancakes, omelettes and scrambled eggs, but most of all eggs burgi (scrambled with tomato, onion and masala with green chillies if you like it hot) Breakfast also came with tea, coffee, cornflakes, toast, butter, jam, marmalade, honey, bread rolls. The rooms are spacious, plenty of storage, fridge, very clean, fresh towels and clean sheets when you need them and also a lovely hard mattress. The wet room is large and extremely clean. (leave shoes outside the door on the rack and it keeps the floor clean) The ceiling fan is very affective so we didn't need aircon. It's very close to the main Baga/Calangute road but not too close so it's quiet at night. A short walk to the beach in 10 minutes. Without a doubt if we go back to Baga we shall look at staying here first, it felt like a home from home, we liked to sit and have a drink in the evening with Jimmy and Heidi, truly lovely people and this made our stay so relaxed.
Highly recommended for budget stay !!

Location : Superb - Very near to Baga Market Road
Nearby Beaches : Both Baga & Calangute beaches are at walkable distance (less than 1 km) through main market road
Rooms : Basic rooms with all basic amenities (Don't expect much luxury since it's budget stay)
Food : Didn't try here
Best choice for people who want a hotel just to sleep & bath and then roaming outside entire day.. (we did the same!)
Best hotel to stay with friends

6 of us stayed for 3 days and we had a good time there. Room service was good. The manager was kind and friendly. He helped us a lot and planned our trip too. There are hotels and rental bike services also nearby. Best place to visit.
