My Stay in this filthy place has so far been the worst stay at any place in India.
First of all, the owner promised us for the Bungalow, which is supposedly at the walking distance from the beach. However when we landed at the station, we were informed that the bungalow is long booked hence we will need to
stay in a 3 room, Pent House. When we asked that why were we not informed about this at the first place, we were told that we MUST have informed you and you must have missed.
However we reached the Penthouse and found it was a ghostly place with several shortcomings:
1) It was in a building at the 4th floor, with No lift. We had to carry our luggage and Kids to the 4th floor with no support from the Bungalow owner who mentioned nicely that Sorry, there is no lift.
2) It was a dirty place with broom, dirty matters, dirty sheet and Pillows, Newspapers, Books lying in the Living room.
3) To our horror, there was No light at all in two rooms. We got our own bulbs to realize that the bulb holder is also broken.
4) Bathroom was filthy, with the flush not working and a 20 Watt bulb. Geyser gave very little hot water that too after a long wait.
We couldn't stand this place and had to waste half of our day looking for another hotel to stay. However the Mascarenhas bungalow managed to screw our much precious and awaited vacation.
I wont recommend this place to anyone travelling with a family.... More
A cottage on the beach!
on Jan 5, 2016
We have had wonderful times here every year. Venita d'souza the owner is a gracious lady who takes enormous care while at the same time giving you lot of privacy. The bunglows have lovely bedrooms with antique beds and other furniture, a dining room/second bedroom, a kitchen filled with basic utensils, a fridge and gas where you can cook your own stuff and a bathroom. All this at a very very low rate per day. The main advantage is that it is almost at the beach. The beach is also not the crowded one but visited by only a small decent crowd. The shacks at the beach here cook the most wonderful food, sunning beds are available free of cost... All in all, I recommend this place to anyne who's looking for a lovely holiday and is not looking for 5-star luxury. Even though Wifi is not available, the shacks have free wifi and... More
