"here is the beach and here is your yellow house"

Posted Apr 11, 2018
Pros: Loved the atmosphere and the sunniness and the presence of the family, each one disposed to help out in any way possible, or just have a chat.
Cons: Maybe there could be better coffee at breakfast?
Location: so close to the beach, with plenty of beach shacks, a range of noisy and quiet, lots of hawkers. Walk up the hill to an old fort to see the sunset :)
Staying at Yellow House was a treat. It is sunshine in a building with a happy atmosphere. Family run, the family is welcoming and kind, keeping track of their guests welfare and offering plenty of suggestions as to how to enjoy the area. Day trips are organised to suit, car and driver super professional and caring. A short walk to the beach, slightly longer walk to other places. A very decent selection of restaurants and eateries for all tastes and budgets up the road and breakfast available daily at Yellow House on the roof terrace with jungle greenery as a backdrop for a coconut filled pancake and a delicious fruit salad. Some noise at night from beach revelry (the beach places conveniently ignore the 10pm watershed) can be disturbing, earplugs worked to filter out the worst. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Yellow House and would return in a heartbeat.

yellow house - vagator

Posted Dec 18, 2017
Pros: location - near sea
only good point about this property is - its very near to sea...budget rooms are too small...there is no - television,mosquito repellents,no security guards....area is very dark with pigs roaming nearby....after 11 its tough to go beach...their restaurants not having any lunch or dinner facilities,inspite of knowing there is not much option outside....

REAL Goan stay

Posted Apr 24, 2017
Pros: No frills or unnecessary stuff. Just honest, clean and beautiful. The gardens are lovely. They keep a stock of cold drinks, including beer.
Cons: Hard to say, really. It is what it says in the publicity, clean, cheap and beautifully located.
Location: Only about 30-40 yards from beach. A short stroll takes you into the village with shops and a multitude of bars and restaurants, all reasonably price
I absolutely adored my stay here. It is a family concern, so you get the real inside track. They are so helpful and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. They found me a driver who was not only unbelievably reasonably priced but also invited me into his house for a meal. Ask them to show you the back path behind the house to the fort. It brings you out in a tiny little village with beautifully coloured houses. Idyllic. The food and beer in the village are cheap and very good quality. Scooter hire or taxis are incredibly cheap. If you are planning to get a SIM card come prepared with a photocopy of your visa and the photo page of your passport, as well as the originals. Also bring a passport sized photo. Ask them for advice when booking trips. Some are better than others. Thanks, Yellow House : )
