My homestay offers luxury yet is affordable. I'd like to think it's got heart but also keeps in mind your pocket. I invite you to experience the ideal blend of a hotel's cool efficiency and a home's cozy warmth. A master bedroom with an attached bathroom has a rainshower, western toilet and washbasin on a beautiful stand, while the other bathroom is not attached to the smaller bedroom but located near the kitchen. It too has a shower, toilet and washbasin. The master bedroom's king sized bed sleeps two while the second bedroom has a double bed that can accommodate two adults as well comfortably. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets). We're conveniently located close to the touristy zones of North G...My homestay offers luxury yet is affordable. I'd like to think it's got heart but also keeps in mind your pocket.

My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets). We're conveniently located close to the touristy zones of North Goa with beaches and plenty of options for shopping, wining & dining, clubbing, sightseeing and other fun pursuits. We're also close to the quieter parts of Goa where you can chill out, enjoy scenic vistas, lounge around or explore historical and cultural venues. You have the whole homestay to explore, along with the lawns outside, the garden and also the whirlpool tub. The Portuguese-style veranda is a lovely vantage point from where you can see the entire property while chilling in the shade, maybe with a beer or one of our complimentary Kindles in hand. My love for pets means the homestay is geared to be exceedingly pet friendly. My passion for automobiles has led to special arrangements that road trippers who travel by car and on motorcycles, will definitely appreciate. We also offer several complimentary services and amenities such as unlimited access to e-books on Kindles, high speed WiFi, Tata Sky HD on a flat screen TV, 10-seater outdoor whirlpool tub, soon-to-be-set-up outdoor mini gym with a treadmill, workout bench and weights, a kitchen with AquaGuard water purifier, three-burner cooking range, a fridge, microwave, toaster, electric kettle, cooking pots and pans, as well as crockery, cutlery and glassware. For road trippers, a DIY car wash station and air filling station. We can connect you to transport services as well as help you hire bicycles, cars,and scooters. You can also independently easily find public transport near our homestay. Security elements like a safe deposit box in the master bedroom, and importantly, safety features like fire blanket and fire extinguisher are all provided. Of course, the basics we include are daily housekeeping services, toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, bath soap and liquid hand wash. PLEASE BE ADVISED TO UNDERSTAND THE BEDROOM LAYOUTS AS ONLY ONE BEDROOM HAS AN ATTACHED BATHROOM. ALSO WE DO NOT PROVIDE BREAKFAST.

Comfort, Convenience, Peace and Perfection
Stayed for 3 nights in September on a impromptu driving vacation to Goa and it was simply the perfect place to stay. A great place to chill and decompress and at the same time located within easy reach of numerous cafes and restaurants. The property is very big and very well maintained with Dean having thought thru many usability cases :). Furnishings and fixtures are top notch. In fact took photos for a future home if I build one. Dean is always available for tips on what to do, where to go In short highly recommended and as they say, "I will be back"!

Excellent Villa where you can stay the rest of your life..
We have stayed at this place for 17 days. It's a very nice villa with all needs you can imagine. The Villa is very well maintained and at a perfect location in Assagao. It's close to restaurants, bars and 7 minutes scooter drive to the Vagator beach. If you stay at this place I recommend to rent a scooter. The Villa is spotless and has a beautiful Jacuzzi. The Garden around the house is very nice and well maintained. It's a pleasure to sit a few hours on the veranda to drink a beer or a glass of wine. The Villa also has also a nice European washing machine. We will definitely come back here again.

Amazingly pet-friendly family stay
Had a very calm and peaceful experience at D'gamas home stay along with the family and pets. About the place, Villa is very beautiful with all the amenities, very well maintained and amazingly clean. It has lovely outdoor sitting area with lawn, Jacuzzi and fountain. Some of the great happening places in close vicinity. Dean (the owner) even suggested places/beaches where we can take pets along also helped us with bike rentals.Highly recommend this place if your travelling with pets.

Just the perfect holiday home for us and our pets
This is the second time we as a family chose to stay here along with our dogs and we just loved the experience. We stayed for almost a week and still found it difficult to say good bye when we finally did. The place is comfortable. The rooms were very clean and had air conditioning which made it even better. The hot rub was a wonderful attraction though we didn't use it this time around. The beautifully manicured lawns was soothing and a great attraction for our two dogs who just enjoyed romping and rolling in the grass. All in all we had a wonderful time and will definitely keep going there.

Perfect, private & peaceful
There is always an element of surprise when you book a place online (judging by the pictures). I was mightily surprised when i reached the D'gamas Luxe homestay, it has lived up to each and every expectation that i had when i booked the place. First of all it is located very close to the beach but still is so quaint and quite. The main gate opens to a well kept green lawn to the right and the beautiful white stone wall house with dark mahgony roof to the right. Our caretaker Rajendra helped us with the key and escorted us into the house. The main door opened into the living room with a six seater dining area to the right and a sofa and chairs. The property has 1 master bedroom and 1 kids bedroom. The master bedroom has a attached washroom. It has also has a fully equipped and functional kitchen with a gas stove, microwave, toaster, mixer, pots, pans, cooker, knives, spoons, milk, sugar, juices, water filter, bottled water, everything that you will need while you live there. The freezer had a pack of cubed ice and i think that was very thoughtful of Dean. The bedroom has a huge bed with a cupboard and a writing desk. Since i was looking for a place from where i could work during my stay, this was indeed the best choice. The entire property is very tastefully done, right from the upholstery to the bedding to the toiletries. The property also has a private Jacuzzi that one can enjoy while being close to nature. This place has everything you need. I learnt that Dean did not use an architect but has designed this property himself, which is commendable. This has been my best stay in Goa so far.. it is an excellent place for the price offered. I highly recommend to spend at least 3-4 days here.

Very beautiful Villa with fine touches !
We stayed there during our trip to North goa and it turned out to be much better than our expectations. It is a big Villa with all the amenities required for a good stay. Dean, was reachable at all times and proactively share all relevant communications. There is good parking space for 2 vehicles and has a lush green big garden to roam and relax. The interiors are really good and the host has gone extra mile with the subtle touches of comfort. The kitchen is well equipped with fridge, gas stove, microwave, aquaguard and host of other things and utensils. Last but not the least, you will love the bath tub in backyard. I recommend his place for a relaxing stay with family or friends on North Goa.

Stunning pet-friendly home away from home in Assagao
Even though my family owns a home in goa, i still prefer to stay at D'gamas- that alone should be a testament to how great this place is. It is SUPER well located, and extremely clean, well maintained and beautiful. I often tell people D'gamas luxe homestay has the best shower in goa!!! the hosts Dean and Jessica are exceptionally warm and helpful- such great people! the best part? its pet friendly and theres a massive gorgeously manicured 1200 meter fully enclosed garden for your furry friends to enjoy. Assagao (location) is the best location to be at, its just a couple of KM out of the crazy hustle and bustle of baga, calangute and Anjuna, and is directly on the way to head towards siolim and then onto the northern beaches of Morjim and Ashwim. It is also walking distance from rutas cafe and cotinga cafe.

Unbelievably comfortable, clean, classy AND affordable!
At an easy to find junction in Assagao, this sprawling bungalow is not just pretty but also well appointed. Staying at the D'Gamas was truly an incredible experience. We enjoyed the comforts of a hotel-like efficiency, with classy ambiance and all the required services you could possibly ask for. But what truly bowled us over was the warmth and attention to detail that has clearly gone into making this home stay. Such as a water filter made sure we didn't have to rely on packaged drinking water each time we stepped out. The kitchen being fully equipped with all the gadgets, crockery, as well as basic breakfast stuff, which meant we were not forced to eat out if we didn't feel like it. It felt so good to just be able to lounge around outside under the canopy or in the verandah listening to the fountain and the birds in the garden, and when it got too warm, the air con interiors were just cosy enough to make for the perfect nap. We didn't even bother watching TV even though Dean assured us we had access to all the HD channels of Tata Sky. What we did appreciate was the high speed WiFi, which made it so convenient for planning our road travel and choosing what to do while there. Thank you for a truly comfortable and elegant experience, Dean. I cannot imagine that you continue to offer such luxury at the affordable prices you do. People reading this, go there before he comes to his senses and raises his tariff! You will never want to check into a cheesy Goan hotel ever again.

A perfect getaway!
Four friends had booked Dean's property for a couple of nights in December. The location is in a quiet residential area, close enough(3-5km) to all the excitement, but far enough for the peace and quiet. The cottage is a quaint cottage with all the facilities you can expect in a hotel. Clean snowy white bed linen, comfy pillows, clean and ample towels(its goa after all!), toiletries(reads shampoo, conditioner, soap etc), a AC that worked well. The master bedroom is perfect for a couple/ parents- it had an attached bathroom which is big and modern(the shower was great!). The second bedroom is tiny, will fit two kids or a couple of adults who don't mind cozying up, the second bathroom is not attached. The garden is an awesome place to sit back and relax with a book, and the whirlpool tub was perfect after a long day at the beach. The closest beaches were vagator, orzan and chapora. Dean was an excellent host- and had gone out of his way to leave tea, sugar, bottles of water, cereal, milk and jam! The kitchen had enough pots and pans to whip up a quick breakfast/dinner. The only negative(which wasn't a problem for us) is that you do need a vehicle to get to the beach(unless you don't mind a 3-4 km walk)- but we had a car, so it didn't matter to us. Its Goa- you can easily find a vehicle to rent! I would absolutely recommend staying here!!
