We booked this accommodation on the basis of the listing stating that it was a luxury villa and the reviews appearing to reinforce this. However the fact is that it is farVedanta from luxury. On arrival we found that the beds were extremely hard and had only a bottom sheet and a rough throw that failed to even cover the entire bed. When we complained, the host simply suggested that we remove the bottom sheets from the beds in the rooms we were not using and used these as top sheets on the two beds we did use, Similarly the furniture in the living room, whilst classical, was uncomfortable and more suitable for formal seating rather than lounging in comfort. The pool area, whilst quite large, had no facilities for "lazing around" as advertised. The host did offer 2 sunbeds and when we reminded her that we were 4 people she did respond by saying that she could source a further two. However, there were no umbrellas or shade of any kind so lazing around the pool was impossible. So, whilst fine for children to play in, the pool area is certainly not an area for relaxing. There is also no private area for relaxing around the villa, despite the fact that the listing included a picture of two Sunbeds in a garden. In fact the villa is overlooked and the curtains do not fully cover the windows thus offering no privacy. Even the main bedroom is overlooked by next doors balcony Having had a bad night's sleep, the final straw was that we awoke to find hot water in only one of the bathrooms and even there insufficient for even 1 shower! After considerable debate we decided to relocate from the villa, despite having paid for 9 nights, and to find luxury accommodation elsewhere. In our view, this is not a "luxury" villa, as we found it uncomfortable, old fashioned, and all of the bathrooms were in need of modernisation with the bath in the main bedroom in need of replacing or re-enamalling. Overall a very disappointing experience.

Villa Vedanta is a comfortable villa within a 5 minute walk of good restaurants & local supermarket. 5-10 minute stroll to a great beach.

Vedanta in Cavelossim is in a great area with everything you need on your doorstep. The two swimming pools were used everyday before we went to the fabulous beach which was literally 5 minutes away. The villa itself was perfect for my family with plenty of space for 6 adults plus a 14 month old. Neena the owner was very helpful and supplied us with a travel cot and high chair, as well as a welcome pack and a few other items we requested. The housekeeper Shweta was on hand for anything we needed. All together we had a fantastic holiday.

As a party of 9 we absolutely loved our stay at Vedanta... The location was excellent, everything from the shops to the beaches right on our doorstep. Neena was excellent in her communication with me throughout the booking and on the run up to our departure date. Only let down was the pool on the complex ( which is not related to the villa). The pool was unclean and unable to use which some of our party would have enjoyed a pool day.. But as the villa is so handy for the beaches we spent our days there and loved it. Will definitely book Vedanta again.

Thank you Maureen for choosing Vedanta as your holiday home and finding it to be comfortable for you and your family. Regarding the sharing pool, I have checked with many guests and other residents of our resort and have found out that it has been getting clean everyday. However, I still have requested the management to supervise it personally. We would love to host you again for your future holidays.

Stayed at Vedanta really by default. Had another villa booked at LBTS which suddenly became unavailable (electrical fault!). Flights were booked and all other arrangements made; so had to find something at last minute. Wanted to stay at LBTS because of the peace, location and general laid-back "garden feel". So Vedanta was available. Far too large for just the two of us - 4 bed/bathrooms, large sitting/dining room, more than adequate kitchen. Pleasant sitting out areas front and back (with fans) - so can avoid direct sun at all times of day. Service was excellent. Sweta (housekeeper) and Clara (cleaner) could not do enough. They were there when we arrived (about 6pm) and when we left(about 4pm) and even insisted on lugging the luggage. They arranged everything we could reasonably ask (beware Clara's curry - wickedly hot!). No complaints at all (apart from the usual Indian hard - for soft Westerners - beds). Would stay again.

We stayed her in 2014, and when we decided to return in 2016 there was only one villa we considered. The accommodation was kept very clean by Shweta and Clara. We had a small problem with the A/C in one of the bedrooms, but Shweta had this rectified immediately, with no fuss or inconvenience to us. We are already booking for 2017, and I would suggest that anyone wanting to stay self catering in Cavelossim should seriously consider Villa Vedanta. The owner is very helpful, and easy to contact. You will not find better accommodation in the area, of that I am certain.

We found this place through a net search for similar properties and chose Vedanta on basis of photos and some reviews. We corresponded with Ms. Neena Taneja (Owner) and our booking was confirmed quite smoothly. She took our arrival schedule and assured us that we would be met at the villa by Shweta, the caretaker. I travelled with my wife, son and his wife and my adult daughter (total 5 persons). We drove down to Goa from New Mumbai in our SUV and the drive was fabulous and lasted about 11 hours. We landed at villa Vedanta at about 4.00 pm in the afternoon and as promised, Shweta met and welcomed us. She showed us around and helped us settle down. We found the place very presentable and tastefully done up. The villa has one bedroom on ground floor and three on the upper floor. The master bedroom is on the upper floor and is the biggest of all rooms. As we were only 5 persons, we occupied only 3 rooms. The villa is part of a gated complex, “Luisa by the Sea” and is located just across the road from beach on one side and a river flowing by the other side of the property. A small promenade is made for guest in the complex to take a stroll by riverside. Throughout our 4 nights stay, we found the villa to be an excellent place to stay for a family. Compared to a hotel stay, this was more conducive to a family vacation as the living room on the ground floor is spacious. We spent quality time together here and used the rooms only for sleeping. The kitchen is well equipped and guests are requested to do only light cooking. Crockery and cutlery provided by the owner is adequate and of good quality. The dining table has seating for 6. Having breakfast in the villa was very enjoyable. The guests are provided with a list of telephone numbers to take care of their needs during their vacation. These include contacts for vehicle hire, food delivery, restaurants etc. We also tried eating in the villa by ordering food from one of the nearby restaurants which again was a unique experience on a vacation. The caretaker of the place Shweta and her helper Diaz are very courteous to guests and try their utmost to make you feel at home. They do not stay at the property and leave in the evening. On our first night they urged us not to do the dishes and assured us that they would take care of it in the morning which they did. There is also a small collection of books for guests to read if they prefer to stay in. Overall we had a very enjoyable and memorable vacation. Whenever we plan our trip to Goa next, we would most certainly stay at villa Vedanta. Thank you Neena with your team of Shweta and Diaz. Arun Goyal New Mumbai
