I can easily call it my most memorable holiday in India ever. I am so glad that my wife found out this gem of a place in the middle of a laid back north Goa town, graced with beautiful backwaters and lush greenery. But what made it the most memorable was the warmth and hospitality of its hosts. Roberto and... More

Cancio's house is a family run establishment, and it feels exactly like that. You feel like you are living with family. The food cooked by Raquel was out of this world! Whether you're non-vegetarian or not, it's amazing. The rooms were clean and lovely, with all that you need to make your stay a pleasant one.

When one thinks of Goa, it's just beaches, shacks, drinks and rave parties that come to mind. But Goa has so much more to offer-The backwaters, the beautiful villages,the Portuguese-Goan culture.

We stayed at Cancio’s house for 3 days in January 2016 and loved every second of it. Its a beautiful place and Roberto and Raquel are excellent hosts. The moment we sat down with a cup of tea, talking to Roberto’s mother, we knew this was no regular homestay. There was a charm to the place that felt like home!... More
