If you don’t spend your afternoons exploring sleepy Goan villages and beautiful architecture, you haven’t really experienced Goa. I am not saying just to say this but these are some true feelings of a happy soul who is sharing her experience with you all. And big big thanks to Hardika and Anirudh who made me explore this mesmerizing side of the city.
After getting a chance to know them, I came to know that this 30+ couple is actually from Mumbai who didn’t want to be a part of the rat race and decided to start their home to travelers, Miss Jenny’s Homestay, a peaceful location yet close to the city’s hustle-bustle that makes it the perfect to enjoy both the sides to the city.
I’ll be starting with my favorite thing, but before that tell me if you’re a dog lover by any chance? Yes? Then you’re going to love the place even more because the couple lives with their adorable dog or I should say with their little furball of happiness. Not to worry even if you’re afraid of them because they have made arrangements (doggy gates) for those who aren’t comfortable with pets.
P.S: I had a great time with their dog. ( That’s Something Awesome )
Talking about saligao, the place is a lush village with Kingfishers, Drongons, local pubs, tiny eateries that serve the best homemade Goan food, and grand Old Portuguese homes. Oh! Did I mention that even they are living in the downstairs section of a 100-year-old Goan Portuguese house? In addition to that, there’s an amazing museum just behind their homestay as well.
You’re visiting Goa then, of course, you don’t just want to have a gala time at the Beaches, Forts, Markets or any other place mentioned in your Google search (Top 10 things to do in Goa or Best places to visit in Goa). You too need comfort and luxuries at your home or the place you’ll be staying at..
So, I checked the Best time to visit Goa and booked this Home. Thankfully, Miss Jenny’s Homestay has two big cozy rooms on the upper level of the house that are interconnected, thus making it apt for family or a group of friends. They also have attached balconies and a common sitting area in the garden. Hey look, you have such a peaceful place for reading, playing, and enjoying their delectable Indian-Continental breakfast. The third floor is an independent garden cottage that makes it a perfect fit for those who prefer a ground-level room.
It’s not the end, the place itself is well-equipped with HD TV, AC, Water heater, Water bottles, Minibar, Tea/ Coffee maker, and bath essentials in your room. Damn! There’s nothing to worry about any basic essential.
If anyhow you’re paying a visit to the country’s pocket-sized paradise, don’t miss the chance to stay at this breathtaking villa that is beautifully run by two wonderful hosts and their love and warmth.
