Veronica Guest House, Calangute
933,Tivai Vaddo Behind Dr. Afonso Calangute
Ranked 89 of 502 hotels in Calangute
My wife and I visited Goa this time to relax and enjoy the place for 8 nights (23rd October to 30th October'2013). What we had in mind was to get the real feel of the place, the sea, the people there, their food, culture....whatever makes Goa "GOA". And we were thrilled. We had booked the room through net. When we reached, we found the room and ambiance better than what was projected on the website. We had booked an double-bed AC room, first floor front side. Be it the tv, or the bed, AC, or hot water service, everything was good. It is very private place with no disturbance. The owner Joseph is an efficient,helpful humble guy. He arranged for our South Goa trip on a bus, guided us to hire a bike from the next day and himself furnished us with a map of the place with helpful guidelines. The guest house provides pick ups. And we must mention the driver Rohan, who is an amazing guide. Housekeeping is available whenever asked for. The number of staff is few since it is a guest house. No room service was available. We wish there was. Goa is a costly place except for petrol and liquor. Veronica is a budget guest house, but we loved the location(2/3 minutes walk from the beach & 15 minutes walk from main calangute beach), ambiance and their restaurant. Though their restaurant is costly.......well, rather say costlier. We had tried food at at least 20 other places in Goa. But Veronica restaurant, we felt, served the best fish and Goan delicacies possible. Squid, shark, king fish, prawn, pomfret, shellfish, kite fish - you name it and they have it....just the way you want it, fresh and steaming. Sammy, the restaurant owner and Aggie the service man were extremely innovative and caring. There are a few moderate-budget good vegetarian restaurants as well as a non-veg dhaba at the main Calangute beach. One thing we suffered for was the morning tea. Veronica restaurant serves you only after 8:30 a.m. Be it coffee or tea, it's costly and not available here and there. So it's better you carry your own tea-maker. As liquor is really cheap in the off-shops all around Goa, grab it and have it. Don't waste money drinking liquor at restaurants. Goa is a small place and a good one to venture on bike. So, instead of going on a conducted tour, next time we would only take a bike. Thanks to the peaceful at-home feel Veronica gave us we had a great stay. We suggest you too take a front side first floor room and enjoy the tranquility. Don't forget to try shark fry with a good whiskey sitting in their lavish balcony. So cheers............ :-)
The hotel is located in Calangute. Very close to beach. Nice homely feeling. Clean rooms. Adjacent restaurant at affordable price. Arranges trips. One can hire bike and scooty from here to enjoy more and more. It avails room service. Shops and restaurants are also close to it. The heart of the city is very easily accessible. Online booking is the best option one can choose for this hotel.
My boyfriend and me just wanted a holiday alone-together. The guest house looks very warm and welcoming. The rooms looked and felt better than how it looked in the pictures. Quiet (very) nice rooms for a very very reasonable price.Everything was too comfortable and Felt like Home actually. The services are quiet good, but the food is AMAZING! Must try the Jumbo Prawns. Its to die for. Melts in the mouth. :) The staff are amazingly friendly people. They went out of their ways to please us. I wouldn't change a thing about the place. And is definitely stay at Veronica's the next time I go to Calangute, Goa.
Veronica Guest house is value for money. Easily to locate and is at a good location. It's a very nice silent place. The rooms are quiet good. It was my birthday so my wife wanted to give me a surprise so she called up for some birthday arrangements before our arrival at guest house and it was very nicely arranged. The cake was good, the room was decorated with balloons and bouquet. The guest house has all the facilities like cab booking, bus ticket booking, bikes on rent, mobile recharge, internet, Wi-Fi etc. The restaurant there is of average quality but you can find good food nearby. The owner was helpful in nature. I would recommend this guest house if you want a good affordable and peaceful stay.
First visit was back in 2014 when we wanted to stay close to the beach.. But after that every time we go to Goa, there is no other place we would want to stay in.. Veronica Guest House is located close to Calangute beach with the beach a 5 minute walk from the place. It gives you the feeling of being at home in Goa. Joseph who runs the place is extremely warm and courteous and ensures that you get everything you need even though it may not be directly available at the guest house. The rooms are cosy and has the modern day essentials like TV, AC, clean wash room etc. Only things that are missing are some toiletries and room service. Everything you need to do while in Goa is nearby whether it is the beach side activities or having fun at a nightclub. Veronica Guest House however is the most ideal place for romantic couples who want to enjoy a peaceful time together in an otherwise crowded place.
