As I slowly relished the last slice of mango from the trees of Quinta da Graca, I couldn't help but smile in sheer happiness. From now on, I can never eat a mango and not think of this beautiful place tucked away in the by lanes of Saligao. I wouldn't have enjoyed the Goan summer so much, if not for the amazing hosts, their warm reception, picturesque home, ripened fruits freshly plucked from the abundance of trees, the easy breezy courtyard, high ceilinged old Indo Portuguese rooms and so much more. Here I could spend hours sitting at the courtyard, without a fan, just lazily reading my novel. The morning breeze couldn't have made my yoga practice any more fulfilling. This place could easily be an artist's retreat! Every nook and corner is worth starting at in awe. I stayed here for a day with my family and needless to say I didn't feel like leaving the place. I had booked the room named Manga. Even though it was a non AC room and it's peak summer, we were extremely comfortable nonetheless. I loved the breakfast uncle aunty put together for us the next morning. It had the coconut bread (a Goan speciality), farm grown bananas, home grown mangoes, sapota and some deliciously made eggs. Overall, we loved the entire stay and experience and would love to come back again with more time :)

Our stay at Quinta da Graca made our trip to Goa truly memorable. Its yellow walls, quaint rooms, and endearing hosts give it a charm that stays with you longer than any regular hotel experience. Located in a quiet neighbourhood with about a dozen other beautiful houses, it is still at a convenient distance from a lot of interesting places (Houses of Goa, the Calangute and Baga beaches, etc.). The rooms -- clean, air-conditioned and homely -- are very welcoming after a long day outside. The hosts, Savio and Audrey, are wonderful, friendly, and open people with many stories to tell about the culture and history of Goa. They are also great for consultation on any sight-seeing or exploring agendas. The breakfast is delicious, and served with a round, fresh Goan bread called "poee". However, while we loved Audrey's omelettes, we do wish we were given an option to have more of them every morning, and would be prepared to pay a little extra for it. For lunch and dinner, there are several great options very close by. All is relaxed, calm, and warm at Quinta da Graca - a place for new memories. It offered to us a Goan experience that was unique and enjoyable down to every last minute. We know that we will keep going back there, and can assure that it's definitely worth the long drive from the airport.

We recently made a road trip from Mumbai down to Goa. Our first days we have spent at Quinta da Graca and it was wonderful. Savio and Audrey are so friendly, warm and open and we thoroughly enjoyed Savio's stories about the history of Goa and his life. The room and bathroom are spotless and clean. The breakfast is nice and Savio and Audrey prepare it with love and if you want it will be served with their great company. The garden is beautiful and so is their mansion, a passion for both of them. The location is good, close enough to all the good spots, yet in a quiet neighbourhood where nature can be heard. And the horn of the baker, but that adds to the Goa experience. We will surely go back here! Thank you Savio and Audrey for sharing your lovely home!

This is the second time we stayed here. If one is looking for the best then this is the place to stay in comfort with new age facilities in old world charm, have delicious breakfast and enjoy the wonderful company of hosts Savio and Audrey. The place is close the popular beaches Candolim, Calangute,and Baga beaches.

Whilst the room was clean and resembled the photos online, as two young women the host made us feel very uncomfortable. We wouldn’t stay here again. We did not feel as though we had our own space, and the host wouldn’t leave us alone despite us making it clear that we wanted to relax. One one occasion he came to our room around 7pm and would not leave for 45 mins, despite us making it clear we were playing cards. They also have a small but aggressive dog who would bark at us when we entered or left the property which was very unwelcoming. The wifi did not work in our room, which meant we had to sit outside the front door of the main property to access it.

We selected this place based on pics - the moment we entered this place, we felt our choice was right. Seated in a quiet village, unspoilt by modernization, is the Home of Audrey and Savio, "Quinta Da Graca". Welcomed by two lion statues flanked at either side of the red gate you have a view of the traditional Goan house with the staircase leading up to the main Balcao of the house. The house is surrounded by fruit trees and a garden full of enthuriums. All the rooms will give you an experience of goan lifestyle right from the furniture to the garden and its surroundings. The rooms and the entire property is kept very clean and organized. Clean Bedsheets, Bath Soaps and a Fridge is provided. The house is beautifully decorated with paintings, period furniture and pottery. At breakfast you will be served with fruits, eggs, fruit juice, tea/coffee and the Goan Bread. Audrey and Savio (the owners) also make you comfortable by sitting down to chat with you and guide you. We walked to church through this village amongst other traditional houses, fields and coconut trees. There are few restaurants 10 minutes away serving Continental, Indian Chinese and Goan Thalis/Food. Believe me, it’s always a pleasure to walk as you go through this village which has retained its heritage. Or, you can always take a transport to other eateries. If you need to travel to town then you can take the "Sardine Bus" to experience how some of the locals travel. Or, you can also seek the help of Audrey and Savio for transport contacts. This homestay has been good, peaceful and enriching for my family. If you want to rest your heart a bit from the maddening rush of your daily city life and if you want to experience the culture and not jump from your concretized room to the swimming pool and then to the pub/beach (which is available in most countries/places) then this is the place for you.

Our First experience with a Homestay and couldn't have asked for anything better...Quinta Da Graca has set the standards high for any future Homestay vacations...Its a lovely heritage property with a Charming Goan appeal...The lush greens so very well maintained add to the allure...The rooms are aesthetically furnished in antique furniture...the basic amenities are all there and the place is spotlessly clean....We stayed at Laranja which was just apt for a family of four....A special thanks to the owners Savio n Audrey for being very warm hosts...The long chats over breakfast were very enriching...In toto a Unique Rustic experience in Goa...Cheers !!

QDG was a pleasant surprise. And this is mostly because of the warm hosts Audrey and Savio, who ensure that your stay at there property is comfortable and memorable. The property is located in a quiet street of Saligao. The guest rooms are very clean and spacious. The breakfast is sufficient and offers a taste of Goa. There is no lunch and dinner however - which is quite okay. Savio ensures that your time is well spent in Goa. Based on your interests, he will have innumerable stories to tell, experiences to share and recommendations to visit and eat in Goa. It was very humble of him to take time from his schedule and take us to a nearby bakery to show how the Goan bread 'Poi' is made. In all, QDC offers a great experience of North Goa. If you are fed up with the touristy crowd of Baga/Calangute - this is the place to stay.

My daughter, son-in-law and I spent a wonderful week at this adorable homestay. We stayed in the cottage which was just perfect. Our arrival was past midnight but we were greeted with a warm welcome and Savio insisted on carrying our luggage for us The two storied, adorable cottage was perfect for space and privacy. The upstairs is beautiful as it opens onto a balcony where you can sit and look out over the perfectly maintained gardens full of tropical fruit and flowers. Savior and Audrey were very hands on, always attentive to our needs. We had opportunity to ask questions and get advice, or just chat, each morning as we were served breakfast on the lovely patio. We felt very at home and had the pleasure one morning of having Savios sister, a member of the religious order, sit with us at breakfast. She was lovely to talk with; unfortunately we did not get to say good-bye to her. Our stay in Goa was wonderful, and largely because after we spent all day sightseeing, swimming at the beautiful beaches, or shopping bargains at the markets, we had this amazing, spotlessly clean, cottage waiting for us each night.
