Maren and Dirk have a great team of Nepalese boys who run a laid back but efficient homestay on one of the best unspoilt beaches in Goa. Monsoon is a friendly and safe place to stay alone or with the family. No hassle, no pressure and good quality food at reasonable prices. There is a travel agent opposite which handles train, taxi, money exchange etc. so you don't need to move fa from the idyllic beach. Perfect to chill out. Enough said.

Room Tip: Beach huts are great but he rooms are also excellent.

Went there with my gf without us knowing anything about the place. We just picked the name from a list of places in Agonda, to have a reference to our taxidriver. What a find it turned out to be. We took a taxi down from the airport. It was apx an hour drive, and they have fixed priced taxi's at the airport. We came late in the evening. Luckily they had a room available. It was on the second floor in the same builiding as the restaurant. The room was basic, but clean. Fan and mosquitonet, bathroom and a veranda outside. We payed 1000 rupies pr night. We stayed there for two nights before we moved to one of the bungalows. The bungalow was basic too, but very cosy. We paid the same price as we did for the room.
The restaurant serves good food. Both the local and international dishes are well prepared and very cheap.Enjoy a quiet, slow breakfast with a spectacular view over Agonda Beach. All the staff working at the Monsoon was brilliant. We felt very well treated during our entire stay.
The german couple who owns the place, are also very welcomming and always ready to share some information.
Agonda itself is a very quiet and relaxing place. This is not the place to be if you are looking for nightlife. Most places close at 10 PM. But it is the ultimate place to be if you want to relax for a couple of days/weeks after travelling round in other parts of the country. The beach is very nice, and the water is clean.
If you are choosing to stay at this place, it is wise to book ahead through their website.

Monsoon has a great position at the north end of the beautiful Agonda beach, a picture postcard setting in south Goa. I especially enjoyed breakfast here each morning, looking out at the ocean, watching Sea Eagles fish and occasionally Dolphins swimming off shore.
The Nepalese kitchen team cook mouth watering Indian, Nepalese or European dishes with a specials board, fresh fish and seafood offered daily and after dinner, with a little encouragement, they’ll perform an impromptu music show.
In keeping with the locality, there is no loud music or bright lighting at Monsoon, generally guests slip away to bed early and can drift off to sleep with the gentle rhythm of the oceans waves.
As it was very early in the season beach huts were under construction, so our accommodation was in the main building, a small but functional room complete with en-suite bathroom, mosquito net and ceiling fan.
We were the privileged first guests of the season, but more people arrived over the following weeks, and before long there was a lovely mix of nationalities, ages and personalities which added to the fun atmosphere. Strangers soon became friends, e-mail address’s were exchanged and arrangements to meet again were made.
Dirk, our host, and the team were ever attentive and helpful with questions and information. There were occasional hiccups like power cuts or an uninvited bug in the bathroom, but nothing that couldn’t be sorted with a laugh and a smile. We were only supposed to stay 3 nights, we ended up there 2 weeks, why go anywhere else?
Monsoon isn’t about air-con, room service, stuffy staff/guests and 5 star luxury, it is however a wonderful serene beach front location, with a relaxed atmosphere, great food and lovely people, well worth a look.

I visited Agonda in October 2011 with my son. Monsoon Guest House is located in the northern part of Agonda beach. We had a good view of the beach and cliff from the balcony of our room. The balcony is a peaceful place to sit in, any time of day. The room decor is quite simple and ethnic. The sound of the sea is rather soothing, particularly at night when it is pitch dark all around.

Dirk and staff are warm hosts. The boys are helpful, and assist with scooters and auto rickshaws. Dirk sits with the guests late night, everyone shares experiences over a beer, it is a very warm and homely guest house. The number of rooms is limited, so the guest house is well maintained and the guests are well looked after.

Room Tip: Room with balcony overlooking the beach or the huts when built during season.
