“Marvellous Mantheven!!!!”
Reviewed 11 January 2009

My wife and I stayed in Mantheven as part of our Goa trip for Christmas. We booked over the net direct and paid a deposit via Western Union as it was over the holiday period. The appartments are very well sitauted down a quiet road that is a little dificult to find but very well placed to escape the noise and bustle of Calangute at night.
The room was very large with a comfortable bed and a balcony overlooking very beautiful, well kept gardens. The rooms are kept clean and there is an ample wet room with lots of hot water. On arrival a complimentary large water is left. The shops are so close by locally that bringing provisions in is easy. The fridge, cooking facilities and crockery etc provide a good alternative to eating out if you fancy cooking yourself. (not that we ever ate in!)

Mantheven has access to a washing machine and a baking hot terrace on the roof. The place is kept spotlessly clean and it's a very homely and safe feeling environment from which to enjoy a holiday. The beach is about 10 minutes away and is an easy and pleasant walk.

The owners, Jessica and Max, are lovely. Very helpful people and able to offer you lots of advice on where to go. They will even help you sort out taxis to nearby spice gardens etc.

Once you leave the rooms, there are lots of good quality restaurants nearby and the main strip of Calangute with lots of nightlife, the Government tourist office and shopping is either 20 minutes walk or about 5 minutes by rickshaw (about 40 rupees). We found the place great to access the vivacity of Goa but to escape to peace and quiet at night. It was the ideal compromise and offers hygenic, delightful accommodation.

Pos: clean, good value for money, near everything you need, comfortable environment.

Neg: your taxi driver may not find it at first - take the address with you and the phone number of the hotel just incase!

  • Liked — It was clean and comfortable; fan (not AC) was absolutely fine.
  • Disliked — Nothing.

We first found out about Mantheven Homes on IndiaMike.com from a member. Right from the time I first corresponded with them, Max and Jessica were warm and prompt.

On arrival, we fell in love with the impeccably clean and snug apartment furnished with all necessary amenities. The interiors are simple, tasteful, uncluttered, modern and well-appointed.

The apartment can be divided into four areas:

1. A kitchen cum veranda area with a wash basin, cooking platform with gas stove, cooking and eating utensils, fridge and sink. A large cupboard with hangers is also provided. If there are more than 2 people occupying the apartment, a single bed and couch are laid out here.

2. Bathroom with hot and cold shower and European toilet. The plumbing is good and there were no leaky taps or stagnating bath water!

3. A bedroom with a double bed, bedside closet, television, two cane chairs and a table. There is no air-con.

4. A balcony overlooking the lovely garden.

Bed and bath linen are provided. The apartments are serviced everyday upon request.

Mantheven is located in a quiet back lane but is a five minute walk away from all the great places on Holiday Street (It is bang next to Little Italy, a minute away from Kerkar's and five minutes away from A Reverie). There are six apartments on rent altogether and Max and Jessica occupy the seventh one.

The fact that it is self catering worked brilliantly for us as that allowed us to get out and explore eating out options as opposed to ordering room service.

Though Max let us park our car in their driveway, you also have the option of leaving your vehicle it in the lane in front during the day. If you are not using a vehicle, it's a good idea to carry a torch as it can get quite dark at night.

Max and Jessica are the best hosts you can hope for. They are friendly yet non-interfering and gladly help out with assorted Goa-related queries. I have stayed in all kinds of hotels, resorts and "home stays", but Mantheven by far scores the highest on my scale. It is also extremely affordable (especially because we stayed in the off season) and offers value for money even with peak season rates.

I would definitely love to go back from a longer stay!

I was taking my 7-month old baby to India, so was very concerned about finding the right place to stay, the large rooms and separate kitchen (with kettle, fridge, gas stove and cooking utencils) peruaded me to try this place.

I'm extremely pleased I did, Max & Jess were very friendly and the rooms were perfect, there is also a great backroad/footpath to a quiet part of the beach, the back route also avoids all the touts and it's only a 5 minute walk to the beach.

Jess has some great advice about places to eat.

2 adults and a baby need a lot of room, we were not dissapointed and always felt comfortable, we had a ground floor place and had our own table and chairs outside out room and next to the wonderful gardens, my baby just loved playing on the grass (and talking to Jess).

Jess has 2 girls who help her, they're wonderful and friendly.

There is no swimming pool, but there are a few hotels near by that have a swimming pool next to their restaurant, you can have a meal and a swim, though the sea is great and our baby loved her dips.

Mantheven Homes do not do any meals, this was another attraction of the place, no pressure to eat at their place, but they know some good places to eat, and give us some great advice about food for our baby.

I highly recommend this place.

Have just returned after spending 3 weeks at Mantheven homes.
It was excellent. Max and Jessica were brilliant hosts and nothing was to much trouble for them. The rooms are spacious and kept spotlessly clean. The location is very peaceful yet there is a variety of resturants and bars in the immediate area. The beach itself is only a 10 minute walk. We will definitely stay again.
