Nice property very close to Bogmolo beach and the airport but service needs improvement

We were 2 couples - drove down from Pune. Stay was for 3 nights/4 days. The location of the property is nice but the rooms that were allocated to us were not up to the mark. We had booked the ground floor rooms with the outdoor bathrooms at least 1.5 months in advance but some other rooms were allocated on arrival. The air conditioning kept tripping up throughout the night. Also, the cane beds turned out to be uncomfortable. Considering that we visited in mid march, we did not get good sleep on account of this. Also, the gyser in one of the rooms was not functioning and was not fixed even the next day. Though the breakfast was tasty, the cook/attendant attitude was not up to the mark. One more thing - parking is on the external road which is dug up on one side so difficult to manoeuvre a mid sized car or an SUV.
Some of us enjoyed being with the owners dogs!
Rating is 3 and not 2 since the owner Amrita provided us new rooms on the last night.

Needed somewhere close to the airport for an early morning flight, so although 50 min from Panjim (hosts conveniently arranged a return taxi for us including an hourly rate for however long we wanted him to wait for us), it was a good location for us. Beautiful setting and lovely swimming pool, home-like, calm and relaxing, rather than fancy atmosphere with welcoming hosts and very comfortable beds, well stocked and reasonably priced mini-bar (included pop, beer, Bacardii coolers, and wine on request - certainly not something we'd seen elsewhere in India with the state liquor laws...)
There was no WiFi mentioned on their website but I had some urgent business to attend to so they let me use their own WiFi in their outdoor family lounge. I felt I was intruding after being in their space for quite awhile, but I had no choice with no working SIM so thanks so much to the family for being so accommodating and sharing their space for an evening. They also ordered takeaway dinner for us from nearby Daobolim (but still a bit of a hike) from menus provided in the room (Indian, Chinese, or pizza were options) so that was also really handy and nice. Custom ordered breakfast served on our own private patio the first day, packed sandwiches and fruit to have at the airport for our second day were both great. Special thanks to 'mom'/Kirin (sp?) who was welcoming, friendly and gracious.
A lovely get away...

Nice place to stay for family with kids or even couples.
1. Excellent service
2. Big, clean, neat and tidy rooms
3. Close to airport. Hence can be a bit noisy with flights landing and take off.
4. Need to have your own transport to get around
Hotel Is avg. At night its looks like hunted place.

Hotel Is avg. At night its looks like hunted place. Lots of mosquito. But its near to Bogmalo beach and international airport. But hotel service and room service is good. Nice breakfast at morning. Hiring taxi is too difficult from here.
