Holiday home in South Goa
If you are looking for a holiday oasis ‘far from the madding crowd‘ -yet perfectly situated by some of the most gorgeous beaches in Asia, then Coco House Goa is the go-to destination.
The house is located in the very south of Goa, Canacona, 45 kilometers (28 miles) from Maragao and 78 kilometers (48 miles) from Panaji, the state’s capital. The beaches of Patnem, Palolem and Agonda are in close distance. It’s a leisurely 10 minute stroll to Patnem, a 20 min walk to Palolem and a 20 min drive to Agonda.
Just across the street from the house, you will find Kama bakery and coffee shop. They will tempt you with delicious fresh croissants, German-style brown bread and a variety of snacks. Nearby there is also a small grocery shop where you can easily pick up many of the basic essentials (tea, bottled water, etc).
Conveniently, opposite Coco House you‘ll find the Oceanic hotel. The hotel offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and has a pool available to non-resident guests (just ask Urmila for fee details.).
The region’s main town, Chaudi, is located a couple of minutes away by bike, car or auto rikshaw. In Chaudi you will find everything you need for your stay. This includes grocery shops, pharmacies, a supermarket and banks with ATM machines. Every Saturday Chaudhi hosts a big bazaar where farmers sell fresh vegetables, fruits and spices alongside the various fish/seafood ‘catches of the day‘ including prawns, pomfret, calamari, mackerel and kingfish.
Wander the beaches and local area and explore a compelling eclectic diversity of restaurants (including Indian, Chinese and Italian).
It‘s about a 90 minute drive from Goa’s Dabolim airport (national and international flights) to Coco House Goa. On the way you will pass beautiful paddy fields, small bustling villages and palm tree groves.
Transfers from the airport to our house (and back) can be easily arranged (see Booking and Prices). Or, after exiting the airport, you will find a prepaid taxi counter on your left.
The best-connected railway station is Margao where you can hire a taxi (which takes about 45 min.). Alternatively Canacona train station is about a 10 min drive away from the house.
