Real guests • Real stays • Real opinions
Our award-winning homestay is situated on a private, forested hill in a sleepy Goan village. Close to all the trendy restaurants and shops and best beaches yet secluded so one is away from the noise and hustle of the touristy areas. The house has four rooms, each one is different and beautifully appointed with antique furniture, lamps and books. Some rooms have four-poster beds and antique mirrors. The pool and front veranda are favourite lounging places where guests can enjoy the sylvan surroundings and abundant bird-life. The large, high-ceilinged living room has a common TV and dining table where guests enjoy our super generous breakfasts with delicious continental and Indian options in addition to the usual breakfast fare. The courtyard garden in the centre of the house is lit up at night and there are many cozy places where you can curl up with a book and a cuppa. We have three resident cats and a dog and hope guests choosing to stay with us are comfortable having them around.
Ayesha is your host at Capella. She is ably assisted by Maria the cook, Seema the housekeeper and Manjit – garden boy and general factotum who ensures everything chugs along more or less efficiently. She genuinely enjoys sharing her home with travellers and takes personal interest in the guests, ensuring they are comfortable and happy. The house is filled with plants, music and hundreds of books from her personal and very eclectic collection. The host is always ready to help guests plan interesting outings and off the beaten track experiences and is very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. She is passionate about environmental issues and takes pride in running Capella as a largely zero-waste homestay.
Capella Homestay is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood just 5 minutes away from the busy beach belt of Baga-Candolim etc. Assagaon is the next village where all the trendy shops and restaurants are located. The better beaches of Morjim-Ashwem-Mandrem are a 20 minute drive from Capella. The famous Saturday Night Market is 5 minutes from the homestay and the hip and happening Goa Collective Friday flea market at Vagator is 15 minutes away. For those in search of something different, Chapora Fort and Aguada Fort and Lighthouse are a 15 minute drive from Capella. There are two fine churches in the nearby villages of Saligao and Nagoa that are definitely worth a visit and guests can opt for dolphin watching and water sports activities from the beaches at Baga and Sinquerim.
