Villa Calangute, Private,Luxury Beach Villa in Goa
Calangute, Goa, India
Additional Location Information
Our villa is conveniently situated 2 minutes from Calangute beach. Calangute, is one of the most popular beaches in Goa; consequently it has been termed the 'Queen of Beaches'. The beach in Calangute is the perfect tourist haven, with a host of facilities to cater to visitors. With shacks and stalls under the shade of palm trees selling everything from fried prawns and beer, to trinkets made of seashells. A short taxi ride will take you to a number of deserted beaches in north Goa.
Within walking distance are two of the main supermarkets of north Goa with a good range of European branded goods available. Banks, ATM's, tour operators, souvenirs shops etc. are all close by. Doctor and Dentist are easily available,very good and much cheaper than back home. Calangute is home to some of Goa's most renowned restaurants. Of the top-end restaurants, we are lucky enough to have 3 of the top 5 right here on our doorstep. However, I prefer eating in one of the beach shacks on Calangute beach, which offers both western and local cuisine. The dishes are great value for money and are truly delicious. Several restaurants and bars host lot of seasonal entertainment such as fashion shows, quiz nights and karaoke.
Calangute is 30mins from Panjim (Goa's capital), 20mins Mapusa (famous Friday Market), 45mins Old Goa (breathtaking architecture) and close by to the clubs in north goa such as titos, mambos, butter and club west end. Buses and taxis are easily available and really cheap. Closest beaches to Calangute are Candolim, Sinquerim and Miramar to the south and Baga, Anjuna, Vagator, Chopora and Morjim to the north.

Memorable vacation by the beach
Stay at Villa Calangute was amazing and relaxing. Villa strategically & peacefully located just 2 min walk away from beach and 10 mins walk away from crowded main Calangute market. Villa Calangute has all basic amenities and rooms, common areas, toilets are very clean and hygienic, thanks to caretaker Yamini, who is very friendly and helpful. This self catered villa gives you an option of self cooking (if in mood), or get local goan food made by care taker, if you are in GOA to just relax and in mood to roam around in the city. A perfect Family vacation splce in GOA.

Relax and unwind in the most perfect way!
Villa Calangute is well situated.. just 5 mins walk from the Calangute Beach. I had gone with a group of 10 friends.. and we had taken 5 bedrooms out of the 7 bedrooms Villa. It was in fact better than what it looked like in the photos and we were very pleased with the spaciousness of the rooms and the Villa in general. Everything was neat and clean and the staff was very helpful.
We loved hanging out in the pool- one of the primary reasons we wanted this Villa.. awesome private pool.. I feel the price was not only cheap but also worth it! Enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back :) Read more

Had a great stay
We stayed in Phase 4 villa with our pet puppy. The villa was in a less crowded part of calaungate and located amidst trees and not much noise. The villa it-self was spacious and had an enclosed lawn in-front of it. The bath rooms though basic, were kept tidy. We used the Kitchen for occasional cooking, which has handy. The booking and payment process was smooth and our questions were answered promptly over email and phone.
Overall we would recommend anyone who wants to stay in a private villa not far away from the city centre.

Home away from home
We stayed a Villa Galangute with 4 persons for 2 weeks and we had a perfect time. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Spacious rooms which are kept cleaned every day. The Villa is situated in a very nice sourounding. Only a few waling minutes from main road Calangute, it's very quite and pecefull. Nice restaurants in walking distance!
We will probably book again!!!

Stayed for 3 nights was great staff very helpful and friendly
Housekeeper done a great job
well presented and very clean
great communication before we arrived and helpful throughout
would 100% stay again
one downside... the pool that was offered to use didnt look to nice however who needs a pool when you have a great beach 5 mins away :)
Dear Villa Calangute Team,
We would really like to applaud the effort taken by the entire team to make the stay a memorable one! What we especially appreciated was the attention to detail and maintenance of the villa. Special thanks to Lakshmi..she was very warm and extremely helpful. We had people of all ages in our group..from a senior citizen to a 6 month old baby...the villa suited the needs of all!
Would just like to bring to your notice that it seemed that there was something wrong with the refrigerator..while the freezer seemed to be working fine, the rest of the fridge wasn't cooling.
Would like to thank the entire team once again...will definitely be coming back here!!!
Just the right place!!
The phase 5 villa is beautiful and very well maintained. The large bedrooms and the huge living area were just right for our cousins get-together. We stayed for 4 days/3 nights. We were 12 of us and the villa suited our requirements very well; it can fit lot more people though. The private pool was the icing on the cake. It was very clean. Though there was extra chlorine in the water due to some recent maintenance/cleansing of the pool, they did their best to make the water better and we did make good use of the pool.
The villa help Raj was very friendly, yet polite and helpful. Once we checked in, the staff and the owner were totally non-interfering but were always there when we needed anything at all.
Though we started off on a sticky note with the owner at the time of booking due to all the rules/precautions, we could understand where he was coming from considering he must have faced varied issues with different guests from across the world. And probably why the villa is so well maintained is also to do with how particular the owner is about the rules. But ya, a little gentler communication in the initial stages would have been nicer.
The owner Dexter was extremely prompt and clear in replying to all our queries. The website itself has most of the info.
I can comfortably say that the cousins get-together was a huge hit mainly because of the time spent together in this lovely villa which would not have been possible in a hotel.
Also, the location of the villa is very central; close to restaurants, shopping and the beach. Its a very well lit lane and there is a lot of activity on the lane, so safety is not an issue at all. Despite the activity, there is no noise coming into the villa.
Overall, a big thumbsup to Villa Calangute phase 5. We couldn't have chosen a better place and can't wait to go back.
Thank you Dexter and Raj. You have a gem of a place.
worth everything about it...Stay, hospitality, Caretaker & Loca
Really had a wonderful time although it was for a few days only Dexter always had time to help me out during my stay and definitely I'll come back again...

The Villa is all that it claims to be, great.
It was so good to stay in a home type atmosphere, lots of room, inside and out. Very clean, close to the beach and restaurants. Management and employees were there in a minute if you needed anything. They were there to greet, you, the owner, Dexter, the managers, Raj and Lucinda, the the lovely person Jamilla who took care of the Villa daily, making sure everything was in excellent condition daily. Kept things spotless. Have stayed in Calangute many times, and must say this was a great way to spend there. Lots of room to stretch out, and not feel restricted to a one room accommodation. Would return there without any doubts. Their description of the Villa is no exaggeration. Was one of our better places to stay while traveling. Thank you all for your care and attention.
Villa calangute was the most perfect choice for our stay in Goa. The location was central with shops and restaurants outside and a five minute walk from the beach. The lively restaurants with its jazz bands made this place so vibrant.We had a housekeeper (laxmi)who would come from nine in the morning and she was extremely helpful,a good cleaner and a cheery face too. This villa had a great pool and the seven bedrooms were just right for the fourteen of us. What i found absolutely fantastic was that there was nothing broken,old or damaged. We had the ac,iron,washing machine,refridgerator and plenty of crockery and cutlery so i cannot complain about anything. The pool table was a delight for the kids in the family and all in all i can only say that Villa Calangute was divine. Thank you so much and i hope you always maintain this as beautifully as you have so that the next time we come to Goa,this is the place we are going to rent again.
Very well maintained property and lot of privacy just like the way we needed.
Beautiful, memorable and luxuries Villa
One of the best property with excellent location. just 2 minutes walk for calangute beach. clean ,well maintained very helpful Staff, specailly Raj and laxmi. The rooms are spacious and good. They make all efforts to make the guests' stay comfortable. Very good memories attached with the Villa and we shall surely come back next year.
Fantastic property (Phase 5).
Feels just like being at our own home.
Great Neighbourhood, Lively Surroundings..
In my opinion, just a bit over-priced, although all the other members in my group were satisfied with the price.
Keep it up Mr. & Mrs. De Souza!!!
Wonderful location and villa but few suggestions
The villa is wonderfully located. Its central to all the happenings in North Goa. The villa itself is astounding with great swimming pool. The cleaning staff along with caretaker did a splendid job but have suggestion to make. Only 2-3 rooms out of seven are meant of couple in terms of bed arrangement. We had to literally place both our mattresses on floor. Other thing we have had to pay 700 rs for a small stain on towel. For a villa and owner of this class and magnitude, it leaves a sour taste. Also, we were charged for 1-2 cutlery breakages which is very petty. Such things can be overlooked. Overall, a great experience and will again book it for next year. Read more
Response from MR & MRS DE SOUZA - 01/20/2014
Thank you for your feedback. Yes only 3 bedrooms in the 7BHK villa have a king size beds as mentioned on our website layout where as rest of the rooms have a single beds. Its done more from a business point of view. That said, one can join the single beds give it a feel/comfort of a double bed.
About the small stain on the towel. We totally understand what you are saying but from our point of view, it was impossible to remove that stain and we cannot present this towel to our next guest, hence we dispose the towel. In such a scenario we ask you to pay for the cost.
About cutlery breakages we shall take the suggestion on board in the near future.
Sorry once again for any inconvenience caused.

We felt at home during our stay
The service was excellent thanks to the attentive Laxmy and Raish. Never was anything too much for them.
The house was splendidly decorated and spaciously. All of us were favourable surprised.
The loation came a bit as a surprise, so very close to the road to the beach. During daytime this was a very frequented street, but luckilly during nighttime the traffic deminished.
What we liked best was the very spacious living annex kitchen. That was the center of our houshold.
Best ever Villa Stayed in Goa
One of the best property i have stayed in...Since i m regular traveller to Goa , i must say the it is one of the Best Villa we stayed in .
The caretaker ( Raj & Lakshmi) were co-operative and very sincere regarding their .
Not even once we felt that we are staying in sume1else bungalow.
I would definitely love to come and stay again in this lovely and super Bunglow
Villa made our holiday amazing and relaxing...
Everything about the villa was very good. all basic amenities were available and the house keeping was really excellent everything was cleaned and sparkling all the time.
Only swimming pool was missing. A pool would have made the villa extremely awesome...
Beautiful property...that's 1 word to describe the property. Nicely done, well kept, friendly staff.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Calangute. Nearest sea Beach is exactly 2 minutes walk from the villa...however not many good shacks available at the beach front. I usually enjoy the shakes in Baga more than Calangute.
Overall a nice and beautiful property to spend vacation with family.

An unforgettable holiday experience
Though we have been to Goa innumerable times, this was probably the best Holiday experience. All the 4 couples enjoyed every moment of the stay at phase 5 of Villa Calangute located in Holiday street the most ideal location for a fun filled Holiday. Raj & Lakshmi the caretakers were extremely courteous and friendly. They looked after our needs well.The Villa is very beautiful and has a well maintained private swimming pool. The location of the Villa is superb. The entire stretch houses quality eatery joints/restaurants serving excellent food.The beach is just about 400 metres away . Water sports and adventure rides are available here.We would like to come back next time too & stay put at Villa Calangute. Though I did not have the opportunity to meet Dexter or Lucinda personally, a mere conversation over the mobile was enough to be convinced that we were at the right place at the right time. Keep it up and wishing you all the success.
A big thank you to Dexter, Lucinda, Lakshmi & Raj for the wonderful experience.
Yes, we enjoyed every moment location is perfect, all bedrooms were nice, bathroom were clean every morning we had tea out side in garden yamini was too good, overall one word is fantastic...
Villa Calungute phase 5 is an exceptional property.
Large, clean and extremely comfortable. The place is well looked after
By Raj and Laxmi who go our of their way to help. The rooms are huge
and well kept. My only complaint being there should be a bit more furniture in the room for eg small table, a dressing table etc some place u can keep or hang some things.
The pool is really clean and a big bonus. Though the beach is only 200 meters away, the area calangute beach is very crowed and full of unpleasant men
Staring away at you.
We had a super time and would definitely come back.
Home away From home
Very Pleasant Stay and Value for money.The Owners and the Villa Calngute team are very friendly and hospitable. They make all efforts to make the guests' stay comfortable. Very good memories attached with the Villa and we shall surely come back next year.
A wonderful holiday! One to remember :-)
We had lovely time. Everthings was very well managed. Staff were so frindly ???? helpful.
A luxuriously relaxed and comfortable holiday
We had a great 5 day vacation at Villa Calangute. The villa itself was lovely, and the location is fantastic. The housekeeper Laxmi, and the supervisor Raj took care of all our needs. We were out most of the day, at beaches and restaurants, and we got back to a spotlessly clean villa and pool. Dexter was kind enough to allow us a late check out, which was good as we had an evening flight. We would definitely stay here again.
One of the best villas I've stayed. we were 9 of us, and not a single person who complained about the place. Spacious rooms, nice amenities, very well located, secured by cameras around the villa. I would prefer to hire villa of this kind rather than spending at hotels - esp when the number is large. You just have everything you want - makes you feel home. And Not to forget Mr.Raj - he was very helpful.
Very pleasant stay
We had a very nice stay in the Villa Calangute. The owner were very helpful and flexible though very strict in the beginning. The cleaning staff is very friendly and reliable.
Excellent service. Fantastic place,well maintained and great location. Would definitely recommend. The owners, property mangers and supervisors were very supportive and were part and parcel of allowing us to have a very memorable vacation.

Great Place, Awesome People - Very nice Goa Vacation Rental ***
We stayed at Villa Calangute Phase 4 and couldn't have asked for a better place. The house is beautiful both inside and out and we comfortably lived with 5 people for about 9 days. Rosanna was the best housekeeper too!
I would highly recommend renting this vacation rental which is also very close to the beach. Great place and awesome people!
Loved every minute of this stay
Having never been to Goa before, i had no idea what to expect, but from the minute we (boyfriend & family) landed, Mr & Mrs De Souza's team had everything sorted for us.
Our villa (phase 3) was spotless every single day, ready for when we came home from a day at the beach or a day out site seeing. If we ever needed any help, somewhere was there to help us.
The villa is situated 5 minutes walking distant from the beach/shops/restaurants, which helped us out on a daily basis.
Also along the beach are shacks that sell food and drinks that me and my boyfriend would go to for some lunch, very nice.
I would highly recommend this villa to anyone who is looking to stay in Goa. we had a great time and I'm already looking to go back next year :)
the experience was amazing, the staff was co-oprative. The toilets were clean and the rooms were tidy.
The towels were not changed for the stay of three days.
Response from MR & MRS DE SOUZA - 08/09/2013
Thank you for your positive feedback. With regards to the towels it is clearly mentioned during the booking procedure plus the website that linens are changed twice a week. As your stay was only 3 days the towels were not changed. We do however offer you an option to change the towels and linens daily for an extra cost but you did not choose this service. Anyway we look forward to serving you better next time.
Very good well kept villa . Excellent location.
Could do better with the Wifi Connection .
Highly recommended for families with children
Response from MR & MRS DE SOUZA - 08/09/2013
Thank you for taking the time to review our villa. There was downtime with the Wi-Fi Connection because the phone line provider namely BSNL were completing maintenance checks in the area. This whilst unfortunate was out of our control hence why we provided you with an alternative Wi-Fi internet connection. Sorry once again for any inconvenience caused.
It was a fun and great stay.everything was intact and was pleasure staying at ur villa.location was also proper n everything was near by.hope we wil see u soon.bye take care.

Peaceful, Professional, Courteous and Well Located
I've been going to Goa for years and have lived all over (including my own property there). As there were 6 of us travelling, we came across Villa Calangute online and decided to try it.
They use a simple and straightforward booking system which is very transparent and helpful. The option of having a shopping list ready for you when you arrive is an added convenience.
Lucinda got in touch with us before we arrived and was available to guide us to the Villa once we landed in Goa. Check in and 'orientation' (where she explained the basic functioning of the villa) were a breeze and handled well. We had a housekeeper (Roseann) present daily from 9am to 5pm and she was very courteous and unobtrusive, not to mention really helpful.
The villa itself (we stayed in Phase 4) was immaculate, clean and welcoming. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We met with Dexter at the start and the end of our stay - his hospitable nature is clearly evident and directly linked to the experience provided.
Our holiday was a great de-stresser overall and Villa Calangute played a central role in that. I would most definitely be staying with them again and would highly recommend them to anyone planning a visit to Goa.
the service provided by villa calangute was very helpfull, the staff was very friendly!
during our stay we had no problems whatsoever
the location is quite accessible to baga and calangute, supermarket is close by and many good eateries around.
it was a safe place.. we were a group of 10 girls .. so safety was our concerned issue.
it is a fully equipped self catered vila.. all the amenities were good.
We had trouble operating the washing machine
& it would be great if the was an a/c in the hall or at least a cooler ..
it was just like our own home away from home,no other accommodation can be as good as it was...i & my family loved living in this villa...
The stay was great, The owners were wonderful and very helpful. If we had a problem they were there to assist straight away. The Maids in both houses were wonderful great service from them, very helpful and kept the place clean and tidy. The house is a tad different to the western standard of housing but for India this place is great. Location is amazing very close to the beach and resturants. Money exchanges in every corner. Overall wonderful experience, very accomodating and lovely facilities.
I am going to my other home from my home
What shud I say its simly like you are moving from one home to the other all the staff are very freindly and What shud I say for the owners Dexter and Leayana they are so good and they specially visited us to ask are u feeling comfortable or not which hotel gives u this gesture... Thank u Villa Calangute for making our holiday so comfotable and wonderful...
Home away from home
Just got back from a week long holiday in Goa. Could not have asked for a better place to stay at. Excellent villa that is very well maintained. Very rare to see the owner of the property stopping by to check if everything was okay. Very friendly and professional at the same time. I recommend villa calangute to anyone who wants to go to Goa on a hoiday. Will definitely go back again sometime soon.
It was a fantastic and cozy stay, "Home away from home”.
All I would say is, it was a memorable stay. To recollect a few were: Very quick response from the property owner Mr. Dexter reg. any matter relating to our holiday and stay and humble help from the house keeper Ms. Yamini.
Overall it was a hassle free stay.
Hope Mr. Dexter starts his new seven bedroom property (the one getting ready behind phase II) and we come back with more people.
A friendly warm welcoming haven
A had a wonderful stay for 3 nights at this wonderful villa. The location is perfect,very close to the beach. The rooms are top notch, spacious and perfectly maintained. The owner/host bends over backwards to make sure his guests are taken care of. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Truly deserve the "Top Vacation Rental" award and all the good comments you have
great place to stay if you are visiting in a group
love the place,its clean,close to the beach.had a wonderful time there.good hospitality and would recommend to friends and family.
Luxurious villa, Lovely stay & very friendly owner i.e. down to
The house ist great. Everything is like they have promised in the net. We can recommend this villa to all travellers to Goa.
The villa Owner is such a down to earth person whom i have never met any one in my life in this travel industry. Example: One day the Cylinder Gas was over in night and when we informed to vila owner he himself came leaving his party in the middle of the night and provided us the new gas cylinder with very kind gesture.
Communications with villa folks was really friendly and amazingly prompt. The villa is lovely clean, nicely furnished and well maintained.
I will strongly recommend this place to all my friends n relatives.
All in all, it was a very exciting stay for us.
It was a wonderful and novel experience. Villa was fully equiped and very much close to the beach.
villa is fantastically designed, cleanliness is up to the mark, service maid was, as it should be, house was full of amenities.
the only thing that made us a bit unsatisfied was rental, price of the villa was a bit high.
the service was really awesome...!!the villa was very spacious n very clean..!!i felt like i was at ma own place..the best location cos itz in the centre of the city...!!!
Outstanding Self Catered Villa
The location of villa Calungute phase 4 was excellent (only a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. The check in was very smooth with a walk through the house explaining the amenities. The villa contained all the amenities one would need in a self catered villa. The villa was very comfortably and extremely well maintained.
What we really liked was the personal touch. The owner is very hands on and responds very quickly to any questions or need the guest may have.
I would definitely stay here again when in Goa.
Enjoyable comfortable and luxurious family vacation at Villa Cal
We were a large family group of 8 adults and 3 kids and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Goa! We stayed for a week in December 2012.
The entire villa was very clean and well maintained. The bedrooms were very comfortable and had all amenities like aC, closets etc. The bathrooms were cleaned everyday and were spacious.
The pool table on the porch was a huge hit with my 9 year old son and he spent hours playing!
The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to do a lot of cooking there.
The owners have done a fabulous job - paying attention to small details like wi-fi, inverter, hot water, kitchen appliances, drinking water, household help etc.
There were frequent power cuts during our stay in Goa which was annoying but it was nothing that the owners could control - they had provided inverter in the house so basic lights and fans were operational even when there was no electricity.
The villa is literally 5 minutes walk from Calangute beach which was the best part. The beach is absolutely beautiful and the kids spent hours playing there and it was awesome to be able to just walk back home after a fun time at the beach! The location of this villa is just perfect. Lots of stores and restaurants nearby as well. If you want a very quiet and peaceful place then this may not be the right choice, not that it was noisy at any time but Calangute is a very busy part of Goa. It worked out well for us to buy supplies like milk, fruits etc.
Special shout out to the housekeeper there. She was very helpful and for an extra cost she did lots of extra chores for us including cooking which made our stay even more enjoyable.
The owners Dexter and Leeyana were very friendly and professional to work with.
The welcome package (including beer) was a nice touch!
Minor concerns were tightly controlled blankets and towels. Couple extras would have been nice.
Would highly and readily recommend this place to anyone looking for a luxurious home away from home while holidaying in Goa!
Luxury with low rates
It is a place with full of luxury with cost of peanuts. We had a wonder time here and the best part was all the famous beaches were nearby.
Comfortable, clean and well located
The villa was very comfortable and above all very clean and well services with the basic necessities like clean towels, soaps, bed linen and blankets. The kitchen was well serviced and well equipped. The water was taken care of and we did not have to bother about basic amenities. The market is close by and the helper lady is ready to run to the market and procure stuff on payment basis.
The Calangute beach is only 10minutes walk from the Phase4 villa (where we stayed) where as the phase 1 and 2 and more close to the beach. But, the location is still not an issue.
It was a great experience staying at the villa.. It is exactly as it looks in the pictures. Check-in was smooth and we were helped throughout in trying to find the villa. It was really clean and had everything we needed! We had a very short stay ( 2 nights ), can't wait for a longer one.
The villa owners came to say hello and goodbye and making sure everything we needed was there which was very nice and everyone else on the team was also really warm to us.
We stayed at Phase 4 which was a little far from the beach but otherwise perfect. Only thing I didn't like was when we were leaving, the maid kept asking us individually for more tip!!
Pleasant Stay at Villa Calangute!
We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Villa Calangute. The villa was very neat and clean, the owners and the support staff were very helpful. Totally worth the money. Its a perfect place for stay in goa with a family or a group of friends.Recommended.
Good hospitality, very good location
Warm reception; villas are well maintained. A very good experience overall
Great experience and location
We enjoyed our stay at Villa Calangute. It is self catered villa, but the housekeeper was more than happy to help with additional chores. The villa itself is well equipped and Dexter was great at accomodating all our requests.
Well thought perfect home away from home
Travelled with a bunch of friends in November. Excellent place. Loved the attention we got from everyone right from the owners dexter and leona to the manager and the housekeeper. . Every little detail is looked into. Kept sparkling clean. I have high expectations when it comes to hospitality and these guys delivered.
excellent facilities and fantastic location
we were a group of friends who found this villa in an excellent location and facilities to a very good standard
I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants to have a great holiday.
Villa Calangute is an amazing experience. Me and my friends landed a day early and villa was occupied but the manager Ivan made it so easy for us by sorting a accommodation close by to the Villa. Next day couple of my friends arrived from London and when all of us checked in together the first impression was jaw dropping. Overall stay was comfortable with the facilities provided and the visit by owners to check on stay makes you feel special:)
Only suggestion is to add instructions about how to use hot water as all 8 of us could not find a way to turn on the geyser and so used only cold water.
Will recommend & visit again for sure though!!
The villa was maintained very well and we loved our stay there. We are also very happy with the services provided by the villa owners. Would definitely recommend it.
Very good communication with owners. They rapidly answered all emails.
The administration required by authorities is slightly excessive as compared to other destinations (no fault of the owners).
Updated appliances, furniture and softer beds are the only things I would change. Very friendly cleaning staff. Good work was done keeping the villa clean every day.
Value for the price : excellent.
Had a great stay. All requests taken care of with much care from the owner/managers. Dexter and Leanna made the stay personal by checking in with us a couple times to make sure everything was OK. The villa #2 is located a short walk to the beach with many good restraints located close to the villa. Baga beach is located a short tuk tuk ride away and a 45 minute walk down the beach. Overall we enjoyed the experience and highly recommend to anyone.
Feels like home!
Had a wonderful stay for 4 days. Ideal location. Very nice staff. A walk away from the beach.
Well maintained and friendly
Everything nice about the place - the rooms, kitchen, garden, and the location is great, on holiday street - close enough to Baga/Calangute main beach and far enough for a little quiet. The owners came to greet us on the 1st day and were really friendly, the housekeeper was very nice and basically we can't fault anything about the villa. Definitely recommended! Oh and advise to future travellers - rent a car locally and keep it to drive around, and to other beaches. Cheap and convenient mode of transport.
Excellent Villa with great service
Everything you would expect of first-class Indian hospitality. The service works like an orchestra with a good conductor. Very nice.
Home away From Home !!
Had the Best weekend ever !!
Specially with my 2 toddlers , plenty of room to run about , their favorite place was the backside balcony , and not to mention the terracotta figures in the garden,
very close to the shops and supermarkets and not the lovely Restaurents.
Great house keeping !
I shall update with some pictures which say it all !!
Had a great experience. The villa is at a prime location near to the beach and the market. The villa is extremely neat and clean and very well furnished.
Cozy comfy...call it home
Villa Calangute has been an awesome find! The property is located minutes away from a gorgeous section of the Calangute beach. The people helping us check-in, the househelp, everyone was very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was done everyday. Its a perfect place for a group of friends to relax and chill! The baga beach, lots of popular restaurants like Fisherman's Cove and Souza Lobo are all located within 15 minutes of the villa. I am going to Goa again and not staying anywhere else except for Villa Calangute!!
Relaxing and comfortable
It's a great place to stay. closer to the beach and its very comfortable. Very good place to stay specially with group of friends or family.(Specially with my kid, he got a spacious area to play around)
Luxurious home away from home.
We could not expect anything more from our hosts than what was offered to us. The welcome was great and seemed like because of their experience in this industry they had thought of everything. The welcome kit made it easy for us to kick start our holiday, the staff was warm, helpful and always willing to serve.
The house was beautifully maintained and clean, the rooms spacious and like other places not over furnished, just right. The kitchen was well equipped, even when we wanted to make our own breakfast. The house help cleaned up and let us have our relaxed holiday. The House was well placed, from the beach, the convenio, grocery store and was 5 mins away from both Calangute and Candolim. Extra points for the lovely staff.
This, for us, was a perfect place and made our holiday that much more better.
A great place to stay. We had an amazing time here.
We had an amazing experience here. The villa was very neat & every one from Dexter to Ivan to the housekeeping staff was very helpful during our stay. We had kids staying with us & the fully equipped kitchen was a boon. We will definitely recommend this to our friends. The villa matched the pictures that we saw on the website.
Excellent property - Value for Money - Comfort - Luxury - Great
We stayed at Villa Calangute (Phase 4) for the first time in July 2012 as a romantic getaway and for some serious R & R.
The reason for the choice was simple, we were travelling with a large puppy, and didn't want to worry about the weight of our pet and the claustrophobic hotel rooms. That the villa had a good lawn where our beloved puppy could romp around, and satisfy her digging urges was a definite bonus.
What we were really impressed and pleasantly surprised with was:
1. A professional attitude, and prompt responses to every query before booking, that surpassed the booking systems of some of the best hotels.
2. A smooth check-in that would again put to shame many fine hotels.
3. Large, spacious and clean rooms, well kept, and equipped with all the basic amenities one would need.
4. Extremely friendly staff, who helped with everything you could think of, right from the shopping, guiding where exactly to shop, and what exactly to buy, and even baby sitting and exercising our pet when we went out shopping.
What you should look forward to / do:
1. Plan and order supplies in advance, so you have just about everything in place before you check-in.
2. Buy your favorite liquor from the local liquor stores, and in case of beer / wines, refrigerate. If your choice of poison needs ice, no worries, there's a large bag full of ice in the freezer, and plenty of ice cube trays too. There's nothing as good as a refreshing drink at some of the lowest prices in India.
3. Speak to the housekeeper and ask her for advice on what to eat, and where. She'll also be able to guide you to the best markets and tell you when to go, and what to buy. If you don't fancy going to the markets, tell her what you would like, and she could possibly get it for you.
4. If you have sensitive hair, do remember to take your hair dryer.
Totally Value for Money
Great Location, Excellent Service and So well maintained... We loved the place and would love to come again and again. Have already recommended it to friends, and thy have already done their bookings for December!!!

Convenient and comfortable
Our stay at the Villa was very comfortable, with very pleasant staff and management. The rooms were neat with clean bathrooms. Shops, transport and restuarants were within walking distances of each other which was very convenient. We will definetly go back to Villa Calangute should we return to Goa.
Very good vacation rental for families
Villa Calangute really lived upto it's promise and served as an ideal place to celebrate my mother's 75th birthday.
The property is well maintained and professionally managed. The housekeeper also helped out with the cooking which was very good.
The standard of hygiene is very good. Being the monsoon season the mosquitoes & flies we're an irritant.
The owner was eager to offer tips for bettering the holiday.
The management I felt was a llittle too stringent with the rules. We had originally booked for 10 persons though 8 turned up we still ended up paying for 10 which I felt was too rigid for hospitality business and a disadvantage for making booking well in advance.
Awesum ppl... Awesum villa...
A home away From home .. A complete homely exPerience n yes ppl do return year after year for this lovely feel. My second holiday stay at villa-1 last year and villa -2 this year. Though my holiday was a disaster as my son met With an accident but I'm grateful to mr. Dexter whom I woke up 3:45am in the morning .the support extended from him was heart touching and like a family member he guided us n helped us out in an unknown city . The gestures cannot be expressed in words ever. Thanks a Lott for everything. And we will keep coming back .
nice and comfortable villa to stay near Calangute, Goa
. Both Bunglows are well maintained with nice interiors and all necessary amenities. The location adds to "the value for money deal". Beautiful experience & pleasant stay. Would certainly visit again. Very nice staff & delicious goan food was served during our stay. pool table in Bunglow added to our entertainment.
its just awesum
The villa is the thing that we are going to remember for rest of our life. It is very beautiful and fully loaded with features. We hope to come back again and again.

The stay was amazing and the experience refreshing like our first one. The add ons to the villa from last time were good and our gang loved them. To sum it up VC is a great place to stay and no second thoughts about returning here next year.

A bungalow complete in itself
We stayed at Villa Calangute Phase 1 bungalow for 3 nights. the bungalow is maintained in a very good condition and is very clean and neat. garden is also very well maintained has a hammock and sunbeds too...kitchen is well equipped and we were provided teabags sugar coffee milk eggs bread butter coldrinks which were complimentary which we highly appreciated. Bedrooms are also cosy. bathrooms are clean just that the housekeeper should try to keep it dry after cleaning it. also face towels should be provided. location of the bungalow is very nice just 2 mins walk and u reach the beach..lots of restaurants and shopping within hands reach...great for families and friends...highly recommended...
Heaven On Earth
Be it morning, noon or night, there was this pleasant privacy always there. The cleanliness and peace of mind can take over any thought in your mind. I expected average, but for sure, this is beyond ones expectation.
I hope you choose this place without a second thought, it will for sure be a pleasant stay as it was for me.
Osbert & Ruth Remedios
Very comfortable and well located
The villa was spacious, clean and well provided. The location for us was just what we wanted.The maid service and the amenities were great and of course I was thrilled that it provided the Wi5 service.
I would only suggest that a shower curtian be provided between the shower and the toilet/wash basin
the villa have always been very helpful and responsive, helped as much as they could on every query we had. the house was in perfect state when we arrived, and was maintained clean during the whole stay. it's a perfect base to stay at while in GOa, and great place to relax as well. it's big and comfortable, with all the required facilities!
relax relax and relax ...
best place to stay ,value for money. loctaion as good as close to sea . 2 mins. walk from the calnagute beach.
overall property is very good. but its little bit costlier. if group is of 9-10 persons then its very good option but for one family its costlier
Relaxing villa close to the beach
We had such a good experience at the villa. The house was light and breezy, the hammocks scattered around the house got plenty of use. Nice and close to the beach and beach bars. Just a superb place. Staff are also amazing. highly recommended.
Home away from home
We enjoyed the stay at Villa Calangute, a well maintained cottage home with trees and shade all around. Would definitely recommend this place.
A great holiday in the perfect villa.
Dexter and Leayana were so helpful in the booking process and provided us with all the information we needed prior to our holiday.
Villa Calangute is located less than 5 minutes to Calangute beach and is very near to the great restaurants of Calangute and Baga.
The rooms are all clean, have fans and air conditioning, the villa makes the perfect location for a great holiday.
We had a great time and would definitely return again if we return to Goa.
Many thanks Dexter and Leayana!
Great holiday!! fantastic villa for the family
My family and i really enjoyed our stay at villa Calangute. It a two minute walk to the beach, shops close by and centrally located to main attractions. The villa was clean, tidy and comtempory. The housekeeper was very accomodating and friendly. We'll definitiely be staying here again.
Another great holiday at Villa Calangute
This is our second year at Villa Calangute and again we had a great time. We took both villas this time and there are plus's and minus's for both. But they are both comfortable, clean and in a great location. If we return to Goa we will definately stay there again.
Great accommodation! Very relaxed!
We had a fantastic time! The Villa is very conveniently located, very well maintained, the staff are very friendly...net, net, we had nothing to worry about except enjoy ourselves.
Couple of otehr points:
- we found it a touch pricey.
- credit cards were not accepted, so one needs to carry cash.
Rupa and Richard
An absolutely amazing experience!!!
We stayed at Villa Calangute for 5 nights and we were a party of 7 adults and 4 kids. We loved the villa from the moment we set eyes upon it. Extremely well maintained and clean premises and a very comfortable and enjoyable stay was had by all. We loved the fact that it was soo close to the beach and came with its own housekeeper, so when we got back from enjoying the day's activities, the villa was all spruced up and ready for us. The only recommendation I have is for the trash in the individual bathrooms to be taken out daily. Overall, I would recommend this place to one and all. Excellent service by Dexter, Leyanna, Ivan and Felicity!!! A huge thanks from all of us!!!
Thoroughly impressed by this lovely experiance.The services were superb and the hospitality rendered was impeccable. The kitchen was really well equipped to take care of the basic requirements which really helped as we were travelling with a bunch of kids!! The best part is that the Calungute beach is a five min walk away. All in all this was one of the best vacation ever and we'll def return if given half a chance :-)
Great value for money, great hosts, and a perfect place for friends and families 8-10 people to hang out under one roof. Thanks guys will visit again for sure
The professional service combined with the personal touch made the stay far superior to any hotel stay. The clean, spacious accommodation so close to the beach was another plus point. Overall, the hospitality, the family friendly environment and the location made this a perfect vacation stay. Would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.
A very very Good Find!!!
I was pleasantly surprised with what Villa Calangute had to offer.
Being my first experience staying in such an establishment, I would gladly suggest this as an option if you are planning to stay in Goa.
Walking distance from Calangute Beach, the Villa is an excellent option for a group of people traveling together.
The rooms are spacious and clean with well stocked kitchen at your disposal.
A big thumbs up, for Villa Calangute :)
well worth of the money
Wow! an excellent place to stay when you are in Goa. The staff is brilliant, the owners are warm and are constantly insuring that everything is good.
Amazing experience altogether. Nice hospitality and g8 comfort. Would like to visit again and surely recommend this villa Calangute to all our family n friends. All the best for all your future projects.
I found a good review in trip advisor and I booked this villa for 5 days for 10 of us. It exceeded our expectations. We felt very happy and homely here. Villa was maintained very clean and the service was excellent.
It was truly awesome experience, just add one swimming pool and you'll be the best in Goa
Experience in this villa was amazing. We had a very good time in villa. Service is excellent. Definately recomandable to everyone. Very clean and hygenic.
Villa accomodation was clean and comfortable. Location of the Villa was good as it was near to beach as well to the shops on main road. We came as a group of 7 friends and had a great time together in Villa, we will cherish those wonderful memories for a long time. We felt like being at home. Villa staff were very welcoming and their service was great. Thanks to Villa Calangute for making our stay in Goa really enjoyable!!
Family Get-together in Goa; Bilssful!!!
We had travelled in a big group of 14 adults, 6 kids & 2 infants. Had booked both the villas for our stay & the first thing that strikes you is the spacious nature of the rooms & the cleanliness. Both the villas were extremely well maintained and had all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay.
The care taker Ivan was very helpful and courteous. The maids (Rosy & Catherine) were always on hand for all our needs.
Lot of open spaces for the kids to enjoy. A well equipped kitchen to take care of the infants' needs and close proximity from the beach were an added plus.
All in all I would say a great location & top class hospitality!!!
Comfortable and Relaxing holiday !
The 10 of us had an absolutely amazing time at the villa. Not only was the villa clean and comfortable, but is also conveniently located and is very close to the beach !
Mr De Souza and team would walk the extra mile to help their guests with any resources/facilities that might be needed upon arrival at the villa.
It is definitely the place to be for people travelling in big groups and who want their own space.
wud like to visit it again in peak times, probably in december.
The customer service was brilliant...better than a 5 star hotel to be honest.
The serrvices were good. The condition of the villa was very good as well and it was much better than expected. It was worth the value also considering the location and amenities. Apart from that it would have been better if the welcome package of milk, bread,eggs,etc was extended to a daily bases. Otherwise it was a good stay
Hello, I’m already planning my next trip to Villa Calangute
Lots to do and lots to see. Brilliant eating places, we were spoilt for choice. The beaches are very nice and offered lots of boat trips; I got a chance to see the dolphins. Amazing villa, very clean and well maintained. Staffs were very friendly and welcoming. Everything was perfect. I shall recommend Villa Calangute to my friends and family. Can't wait to go back.
awesome goa and villa calangute
stay at this villa was very comfortable...excellent.love to be there again for bigger period.villa /staff and owners were too good.
It was a Fabulous Experience
We arrived in the villa after a very long drive & we got an excellent welcome from Mr & Mrs De'souza with an overview & a walkthrough in the villa. The villa is perfectly planned & arranged to get maximum comfort with bedrooms on top floor & Living, Dinning & Kitchen on ground. The Kitchen was fully equiped with all the Devices & utensils which are required for day-to-day living. The location is ideal uncrowded, silent & very close to the beach. The best part of the villa is the ambeince, Location & Comfort.
Worth your money
Warm and welcoming experience right from the moment you step in. Neatly done interiors, not to mention are also clean and kept tidy at all times. A very warm and cheerful couple who run the place are ready to assist and ensure that your stay is hassle free at all times.
The Villa gives you a house maid who will ensure that your needs within are taken care off in case you decide to stay indoors. When you move out the Villa gives easy accessibility to Candolim, Calangute and Baga beaches. In case you are new, there are detailed maps for your assistance.
A perfect place for those who are travelling in numbers. True value for money in all regards.
Amazing gateway for the family
I would like to congratulate Mr. Dexter & Mrs. Leayana De souza for maintaining such high standards of their Villa. My family that includes my wife and our little 2 year old, our pet Dog Stanley and our helper Mukesh had the most awesome time ever. The Villa is just few minutes walking distance from the Beach and is located at a very nice /friendly neighbourhood. We happen to accidentally check out this place and when we did it turned out to a very wise choice. We look forward to spending many more memorable vacations at this homely place. In fact anyone going to Goa with family who wants privacy, security and excitement need not look beyond. When good things happen one does not really need to make any special effort to speak about them and so I have already recommended this place to my friends & family who have plans to go to Goa.
I would also like to take this opportunity to appreciate the prompt delivery of my camera charger which I had left accidentally (Thanks Dexter)
Many Cheers to Villa Calangute.

Fabulous place to stay with Friends or Family. :-)))
Please maintain the property as it is retain your service staff, they were simply great.
Excelent property with all comforts of home. Economical and clean. Great experience in all.
A wonderful holiday experience
We all throughly enjoyed the 3 day stay at the villa. The villa was clean, spacious and very much like home. The well-furnished kitchen was something we all enjoyed. As our days started with nice heavy breakfasts. The garden around and beach chairs outside were great to sit out and walk in during the cool nights. A special thanks to you. Rosie was very efficient with her work too. Thanks a million for the lovely stay. Looking forward to many more holidays at your villa.
Villa is beautiful and sublime and unique quietly ..
Rooms spacious and clean and all services are available and arranged garden
Very close to the beach ..
I advise the groups consisting of 4-7 in the villa housing because they find it more economical and comfortable with full privacy
A very nice place we enjoyed. It was close to the beach and all amenities. Very clean and well maintained. Definitely staying here again.
Home away from home
Excellent location, clean villa, nice garden good facilities and pleasant and helpful owners, Entire family enjoyed four days stay. Will definitly come back again next year.
best holiday ever,like staying at a 5* but a quater of the price
We spent our holiday at Villa Calangute, we have been to Goa many times but really enjoyed this stay. The owners were really friendly and helpful and helped us source out all the bargains. The rooms were clean, tidy and had all the modern facilities and most importantly reasonably priced. The villa was close to all the hot spots and only two minutes away from Calangute beach. When we arrived we got a welcome pack so didn't need to head straight to the shops for supplies.
Upscale, Clean and Perfect Getaway.
We did have a wonder holiday would like to thank Dexter and Leayana for the perfect hospitality during our stay there. The rooms were very clean and upscale, perfect for us. We will be returning customers in the near future, and will give high recommendations to our peers. If we go to Goa again, it will definitely be Villa Calangute!
It felt like my own home.
We were two families with small kids & had a wonderfull stay.Mrs & Mr Desouza took personal care right from check in till check out to make our stay a memorable one.The best part is that Villa Calangute has all ameneties that one looks for in a hotel or a resort.Morover it is 2 mintues walk from the beach so one can make frequent trips to the beach.It is ideally located as all prime beaches are 5-10kms from Villa Calangute.

Response from MR & MRS DE SOUZA - 04/07/2011
You guys were great, hope to see you in Delhi is the not so distant future.
Had a fabulous time in Goa, the residence was supperb, we were looked after very well by our hosts, the accomodation was very clean and comfortable. If I had to pick a fault, it would be that the down stairs living room needs a airconditioner.
One of my best experience ever. I was on a trip to Goa with friends and was looking for a place to live where we could feel at home, not because we wanted to but also because we had our best with us our dogs. when i spoke to dexter, he was more than happy to welcome us in our house. It is just 2 mins from Calangute Beach and we had a gala of a time.
The house help "Priya" also was very good and ensured the place was kept clean and tidy. it felt we had the housekeeping of a five star hotel.
We all wish Villa Calangute the best of luck for its future and hope to see Dexter and Leyana very soon. We now plan to stay at only his property every time we visit.
We rate the property 5 ***
The Hobby Family
A relaxing and stress-free break
We had a marvelous time and came away with lots of happy memories. The villa was exactly what you see in the photos, no more and no less. It was very clean and conveniently located to the beach, restaurants, supermarket and shops. It is a little bit from the main street of Calangute and that is to its advantage as it is very noisy and extremely crowded there. My only criticism would be that although the villa sleeps 10 (8 in beds and 2 on mattresses) the dining table only seats 6 and there is limited crockery, etc when you are a large number. Also it would benefit from more outdoor seating. The weather was perfect so we wanted to spend our evenings on the terrace and it would have been nice to have a table and chairs there. Having said that we will definately be back and will take both villas next time as I am sure even more friends will want to join us.
The stay at Villa Calangute was the most memorable and enjoyable. we all really had a blasting time there. a self contained place with loads of facilities like aC, Fridge, TV, Cable, Microwave, Hot Water and so on. jus 3 mins walk to the calangute beach. i strongly recommend everyone to book this place for vacation w/out giving it a second thought. Thanks a Million leayana and dexter for making our vacation so wonderful !!!
A great stay!!
Hi Leayana and Villa Calangute,
Thanks for all your wonderful help and great admin skills prior to our arrival and many more thanks for a great stay in Goa. See you in Dubai !!
Joe ad Mian Davis
We will definitely come back
Hi Leayana and Dexter,
Your beautiful villa is just the place we were searching for. Great holidays. Thanks for all your support. Looking forward to see you next year, same time.
Renata, Rajko, Rado, Zdenka
great location, comfortable stay, absolutely relaxing
The hause is nice and clean, the rooms are confortable each of them with balcony. The beach is only a 2 minutes walk, restaurants and shops are very close as well. The owners and the hausekeeper are very nice and friendly so i can just recommend. Enjoy your stay.
had a gr8 stay at this beautiful villa...totally value for money...the owners are the sweetest i've come across...
hope to visit again...soon :)
Great house great location
First time visit to goa, and I hope not the last.
We were 2 families 9 people. but all adults. We arrived early hour of the morning to be welcomed by both our hosts Dexter and Leayanna, They made us feel very comfortable.We had a welcome pack tea coffee eggs bread etc. which helped
The villa is big and light with high ceilings making the place look even bigger than it looks on the photos. Nothing was to much of a problem for our hosts advise for resturants, dentist shopping etc they were there to help They even came round to make sure we were ok when we had our first power cut in the area. The place was cleaned and tided by the maid every day. You have within walking distance everything from supermarket to shops taxis resturants and, you are 2 mins walk from calangute beach, the best beach shack is aggies.
I would recommend the Villa calangute to everyone and I hope soon to return. So many thanks to our hosts Leayanna and dexter
Excellent stay option for an extended family for a long stay
We were a family of 3 couples (3 sisters and their husbands/kids) and were looking for an option where we could stay together and also close to the beach but away from the commercial area. Villa calangute was just perfect for our situation. This was our third trip to Goa and Villa calangute made this experience the best so far. Villa is maintained nicely, it has fully equipped kitchen, it is very close to the beach but away from commercial area. Rooms are excellent and well maintained.
Most importantly, owners (Leayana and Dexter) were very friendly. I am definitely going to visit them again next year.
Incredible Hospitality, Excellent Value & Perfect Location
We really enjoyed ourselves at your villa. Pria was great, she was helpful and kept the place clean. We all hope to visit again some day and we will definitely stay here. Your place will be highly recommended to any of our friends or family who may travel here. Thanks for your warm hospitality and sweet smiles.
Dexter and Leayana the owner of the villa were very promt right from the begning when we were enquiring about the villa. The villa was as they had promised clean, tidy and with all the aminities necessary for the stay. Our fridge was stocked with basic food required, the kitchen was well equipped with all the essential equipments. The villa was being cleaned on a daily basis.The villa itself is a huge place just 5 minutes away from the beach as well as very close to the market for shopping. We were 7 girls in a villa so i can say from my expirience its a very safe place and gives a homely touch to the entire expirience.
Thanks guys for making our visit so comfortble & All the best!!!
Really a cool place
Truely a great place to stay in Goa.
Only one suggestion - please arrange for a inverter backup for all the rooms incase of power cut. Thanks.
Excellent villa, great communication, lovely people
From the initial enquiries about availability until our arrival Dexter and Leayana could not have been more helpful. Communication was really friendly and amazingly prompt. The villa itself is lovely - clean, nicely furnished and well kept. Each day the villa was cleaned and tidied for us, and towels and bedlinen was changed twice a week. Our fridge was stocked with drinks, bread, butter and eggs, which was a lovely touch. We were actualy quite sorry to leave. I have stayed at hotels in the same area, and the villa far-outperforms them in terms of facilities, cleanliness and staff. We shall be making a booking for the same villa again, with no hesitation whatsoever. Thank you to Dexter, Leayana and Catherine.
Homely accommodation on holiday
Excellent villa at affordable price and perfect location. Very tidy with good ventilation and perfect place to end the search.
Nice time in Villa Calangute
Wonderful place and very clean.
Very much available and nice people and staff.
Very good facilities.
Congratulations and thank you!
Hallo Leayana and Dexter,
Thank your for all the support you give us, during our 14 day stay in March 2010 in your villa.
The house ist great. Everything is like you promise in the net. We can recommend your house to all travellers to Goa.
It is quiet and if you wish to make party, just walk a few minutes and you find the party. If you like it quiet, just stay in the area arround the villa.
The beach ist just 3 minutes by foot.
All in all: You give us great holidays. Hope to see you again.
Juergen and Frank
Amazing stay, luxerious villa & friendly owners!!
It was indeed a vert comfortable stay for us here. And quite luxerious too. We would love to come back here again. Also, we would be glad to recommend this place to our friends. The surprise package of eggs, beer, milk and other grocery items came handy. Moveover, we all loved the deco inside the house. Hoping to continue the association with you. All in all, it was a very exciting stay for us.
