“Lovely place,lovely people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2011

This was our second trip with Sophie George and I have to say,she excelled herself with this one,she could not have been more helpful,always smiling and there if you needed her,the girls who cleaned the room were scrupulous,constantly smiling and singing while they worked,the pool was excellent and cleaned very morning,and the position of the estate couldn't be better(right in the centre of the village)the villa we had was right on the pool side and spotless,it had plenty of space and a nice veranda,the security guards walked round theaea most of the day,and were at the gates all night(not that we felt we needed them)I would definately recommend these villas for a comfortable,safe and peaceful stay.

I traveled there with my wife and my 3 young children in Nov 2010.
The villa is located in a compound close to the beach. The compound is beautiful and the greenery is awesome. The seafood is great in the many stalls in the nearby.

The villa is also close to supermarkets and close to the main shopping street where you can find restaurants and handicrafts. Trips to the river to spot birds and dolphins are common and nice.

Take a taxi to Margao to experience a bigger city feeling.

Only a couple of things to be perfect: be aware of mosquitoes (but the villa is protected with window nets) and black-outs that are common in Goa (the villa is equipped with back-up UPS batteries), but not a big deal.

I would definitely go back there!

We stayed at a Villa owned by Sophie George - No. 46. It was a great experience. It was a family reunion and went off beautifully. The bungalow was comfortable and clean, ideal proximity to the beach, clean pool and quiet and tranquil location. All our requirements were met promply. The service was good and Sophie was extremely helpful. She even returned an amount which we had unknowingly paid in excess. It was a very good experience on the whole.

My family & I (totaling 11 - incl my 3yr old) stayed at Luisa By The Sea in the 1st week of Jan 2011 and I must say this is the BEST place to stay! It was a wonderful experience! We really loved the villa which was provided to us and it more than met our expectations. LBTS feels like a very nice gated community with lots of trees, shrubs, flowers and lots of greenery. The place has 2 pools which is very convenient. The rooms and bathrooms were huge and we were provided with clean sheets and pillows and also additional pillows, beds as required, without any fuss! The villas have all modern amenities including a fully functional kitchen (fridge, m/w, plates, cups, cutlery etc). We dealt with Ms. Sophie George who was professional to the core and was very nice to us. She helped us with whatever we needed (at one point we needed a bigger cooking vessel and some curry leaves, which also she so kindly provided!!!). And the place has a lot of staff (gardners, cleaners, security) who are civil, courteous and never intrusive. The complex also retained some old school charm with a small wicket gate at the back which opens to the road leading to the beach (a 2 minute walk). Taxis outside the villa, stores, bars, spas/massage, restaurants within a stone's throw which made it all the more convenient. My stay was very blissful and I definitely plan to go back whenever I can!

This year will be our fifth year staying at Luisa by the sea. Every year we look forward to our escape from England to our piece of 'paradise'. Luisa is an ideal location for the beach and dining in the local village. The villas are compact and have everything one needs. The gardens are beautiful, well maintained and so tranquil with a choice of two pools.

Ms Sophie George always handles our booking and she has done so every year with politeness and efficiency and my husband and I now regard her as a friend. She gives us a warm welcome and is only too pleased to help if we should need it. The staff are diligent and always ready to assist the guests.

Cannot wait to return!!
