The space

Raikar Guest House is located near the quiet , less populated Bogmalo beach. There are all kinds of amenities and facilities near this place like church, market, bars, sea-food restaurants, etc. Infrastructure wise it is house with 4 independent self contained rooms with a porch where one can sit and relax in the mornings. So, the entire guest house can be let out as complete holiday home with 4 master bedrooms or individual rooms can be hired as bed and breakfast inns. Each room can accommodate 3 people on a bed. There is no AC, however no need for the same is felt as there is cross ventilation in each of the rooms where even the ceiling fan appears redundant.

The main USP of this Guest House is the existence of an approximately 300 sq mts. green yard which also can be used during one’s stay here. This space can be utilized for having meals by setting up tables and chairs during non rainy seasons or also can be used for barbecuing (grill is provided), camp fires and hosting parties or ceremonies or functions. One can even relax on a hammock while reading a book or deep in contemplation amongst the trees and greenery of the lawn.

Food is not a part of the package but there are enough restaurants just a stones throw away from the place which do room delivery.

Guest access

The Guest House has 4 self contained rooms with a divided porch outside overlooking the lawn. The entire Guest House can be let out as a Holiday home or individual rooms can also be let out. The lawn is also let out for events and parties.

Interaction with guests

The neighbourhood

Bogmalo is a sleepy beach village in South Goa. It has coconut trees all over the place. The place is not a commercial tourist center as yet and hence less crowded allowing enough time and space for oneself to absorb the serenity and the splendour of the surrounding nature. It looks like an incredible concoction of a jungle, hillock, village and an island.

Bogmalo beach is the closest beach to this place. Just like the village, the beach is less populous too giving it an impression of being a somewhat private beach. It is decorated on the boundary by various restaurants and shops selling artefacts, clothes and other souvenirs. There are some luxury accommodations like the Bogmalo beach resort and the Coconut creek resort.

What's remarkable about this less known tourist destination is its proximity to the only airport in Goa (Dabolim Airport). It's only about 10 mins drive from the airport.

In the neighbourhood is the Naval Aviation museum which is only half a kilo meter away which is worthwhile watch for kids and warfare equipment enthusiasts. Some good restaurants are there in this place like Claudi's and other theme restaurants on the beach.

Getting around

Free parking is available at the Raikar Guest House. The primary mode of transport is private vehicles. Alternately there is a private bus service available every half an hour whose stop is about 250 mts away from the Guest House.

House Rules

The only expectation is guests should not be so boisterous as to disturb the peace and other guests. Guests will be expected to furnish valid photo id as per the norms laid down by Government.

Stayed for two nights after flying into goa. Great host. Clean and tidy place and very close to the airport. Siddesh also hooked us up with a taxi to meet us on arrival at the airport

We stayed at Siddesh's place as we were landing into Goa airport really late and didn't want to travel through the night to our next destination. The room was only 10 minute drive from the airport, was in a really lovely quiet area, and we enjoyed a few drinks on the beach before bedtime as well as a lovely breakfast there the next morning. It really is a gem of a location - beautiful coconut groves and a lovely beach only a few minutes walk away. It's really easy to take a bus (INR15) to Vasco de Gama for onward travel. The room itself is very basic - but everything you need for an overnight airport stay.

Good room, but far from the beach. And the price is among the highest that we paid on this trip to Goa. This is quite noisy at night, because the host is used by those who need to depart or arrive at the airport. But it is a very good host owner. He helped to call a taxi.

We had an amazing stay - so much so that we decided to come again on our way back from Goa. The place is easy to reach from the airport by a taxi. Siddesh and his family were very helpful with anything we needed.

We visited Siddesh's accommodation as we needed somewhere to stay for a few hours whilst waiting for a connecting flight. It was an authentic Indian homestay. The accomodation was basic but clean and conveniently located to walking to the beach and local village. Siddesh and his family friendly and welcoming. Their home is located in a quiet area that is green and pretty. Thanks Siddesh!
