Casa Da Praia

Let's put all our cards on the table!

1. Casa Da Praia is a quiet place with few staff, we don't have a reception or room service but we will clean your room before 3pm. Our facilities and activities are few, however, we’ve been told that our rates are competitive so that’s nice.
2. All our nine rooms are within a secure walled garden and have a view of the garden/pool.
3. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so it’s complimentary to all our guests between 8am & 10.30am. Our cooks are experienced at preparing anything from our menu so best not to ask for anything else. If you have any special dietary requirements we may have a problem.
4. If you are a Casa Da Praia virgin you may have difficulty finding us unless you’ve done some orienteering so please use Google Maps if we haven’t helped you with the transport. You must confirm your ETA so that we can be ready to greet on arrival.
5. You can smoke to your heart's content outside your room or even while swimming in our pool, but definitely not in any of our rooms.
6. Air Conditioning should be switched off when not in the room for the sake of the planet.
7. Correct swimwear is mandatory so our pool water stays clean and inviting.
8. We don’t have a restaurant or bar so by all means bring in your own drinks and feel free to bring your own drinks or call Swiggy. We can provide the drinking water to wash it down with.
9. Some of our rooms have Indian slate floors and all our rooms have antique furniture that we like, however, you may not, so it's prudent to take a second look at the photos to confirm our aesthetic suitability.
10. Linen is changed every other day to stay environmentally conscientious and help keep our rates low. If you make a mess and need a change its not a problem but it will be chargeable.
11. At Casa Da Praia we've tried not to upset our neighbours, so our entrances are poorly lit and the road hasn’t been tarmacked. You may have to navigate through the cluttered vegetable shop that is adjacent to Casa Da Praia if it's open.
12. If a friend, unexpectedly, wants to join you or you suddenly give birth before your arrival, please let us know so that we can make sure that the room is still adequate for your requirements.
13. Booking Confirmation/Offer are only valid for 3 days (24 hours if arrival is within 7 days).

Gym, Pool & Garden

It's here so lets use it!

When we purchased the land there was but one sad old coconut tree but we wanted an oasis that would allow our guests the opportunity to relax and unwind. The downside to all that relaxing and unwinding is the bugs and the birds that feed off them so make sure you are ready for the incessant bird song and come prepared with bug spray. You will be pleased to know that I can't remember the last time a person died of malaria.



We don't have any signboards and we like it that way

Casa Da Praia (House No. 477, Vaddy, Candolim, Bardez, Goa, 403515 behind Lemon Tree Hotel) is located on the sand in the village of Candolim. The very short scenic walk to our favourite beach Shack does not involve crossing any main roads.

Casa Da Praia is set within 1000 sqm of landscaped walled garden with a swimming pool. There are 2 locked gates that only allow access to guests with the correct code. The front gate is mainly for walking to and from the many shops and bars that are only 150 meters away and the rear gate is for vehicular drop offs and 250 meters from the Arabian Sea. The rear access, garden and the pool are all illuminated at night.

When coming by car the best landmark to find Casa Da Praia is the Lemon Tree Hotel. You must take the road that runs between the Lemon Tree Hotel and the Candolim Medical Center towards the beach. This road then turns left around the heritage part of the Lemon Tree Hotel (there is a small road that turns left into the Lemon Tree Hotel but this is not the road you want) then you will find a small row of little shops on the right after which immediately turn left into a dirt road that will take you to the back gate of Casa Da Praia.

When coming on foot the best landmark to find Casa Da Praia is the Candolim Deck Restaurant (Opp the Acacia Hotel). You must take the road that runs along the side of the Candolim Deck Restaurant towards the beach. Once on this road take the second path on the right which will bend a couple of times for 100 meters past many congested building before you come to the front gate of Casa Da Praia.

When coming by boat the entire coastline looks the same so you have absolutely no chance of finding us unless you use our geographic coordinates 15*30’48.84” N, 73*46’02.12” E .
