Casa Menezes – The Heritage Home stay of Goa, a home away from home, an experience like no other, nestled in the rustic lush greens of the Batim village, just 13 kms away from Panjim. Thankfully it is one of those villages in Goa that is still stuck in time, and we don’t intend to change that characteristic feature of this tranquil haven. Come experience true Goan Heritage. Perched in the valley of the Pilar and Santa Ana hillocks. The house is situated in ‘Gaunkarwaddo’ of the larger village of Batim. It overlooks paddy fields bordered with tall coconut palm trees. A scene around the whole village, take a walk around and you will soon discover the ‘Our Lady of Guardalupe’ church, the Parish church of the Batim village, A few steps ahead would take you to the Batim Lake, a bird watchers paradise, this lake attracts a lot of migratory birds. Wander around and amaze yourself with the simple pleasures life has to offer. While staying with us, we assure to make you feel relaxed and rejuvenated in this 300 year old ancestral home of ‘de Menezes’ family, replete with teak, oak and rosewood carved antique furniture, original art and virtuoso regal interiors combined with all the modern amenities needed to make this one of your most cherished holiday experiences ever! Guests can cycle around the village, go bird watching at the Batim lake, try their hands at salt harvesting at the local salt pans,walk up to the famous miraculous St.Simon and Jude church in Maina to appease their spiritual yearnings. Drive to the Santa Ana church believed to be one of the Oldest churches in Asia or to Siridao beach to bask on the sand and soak yourself in the waves of the Arabian sea. We also serve the most scrumptious breakfast complimentary , and our guests can pre order their meals for authentic home cooked Portuguese/Goan and Indian cuisine.

Hi, what would you like to know about this accommodation? Hi is there a beach near by please ??
The closest beaches is about 4 Kms. away, called the Bambolim beach ( where the Grand Hayatt is situated) and Siridao beach from where you get a clear view of the Arabian sea and the mouth of the river Zuari. Goa has many beaches and that are a short ride or drive away. We at Casa Menezes help our guests with their sightseeing iterenary. We will point you towards some of the best spots around Goa.

I am pure vegetarian. Do you also have good vegetarian dishes ? All the reviews are mainly describing the sea food..so I am little concerned about it. and do we need to inform in advance, if we want to have lunch or dinner at Casa Menezes?
Hello Mugdha, Thank you for your query! Yes we do have meals for pure vegetarians, and a nice blend of local flavours and authentic Goan- Indo Portuguese masalas that we use in our day to day meals. Since the standard options are limited and we are left with limited items to choose from, we have take orders to give our veg guests the option of tasting the traditional Goan masala's with vegetarian options instead of using the standard sea foods or non veg. items. We even have dedicated pans for the job. You can choose from Paneer, Mushrooms, Potato, Okra, sweet potato and other local produce like 'Tambdi Baji' 'Sheppi' etc which are fram fresh (depends on the season) with these authentic flavors to get your fill of the true Goan Experience! Even the breakfast has great vegetarian options that are traditionally Goan and tasty. Goan cuisine is bliss for a non vegetarian, but we know how to make it equally memorable for our Vegetarian guests. It will be even better if we have a good enough head start and can receive orders in advance, as we can shop something special for you at the local market. looking forward to cooking for you at 304! Regards, -David N Menezes Casa Menezes

"upper floors offer better view"
"Quite part of Goa, well connected to travel to both North or South Goa"
"If you want the real homestay experience try to stay in the main house."
