Its a quiet, secluded spot with a great beach nearby. Would recommend for a laid back stay in Goa.

Devika was a brilliant host as she had everything ready at it felt exactly at home. No constant calls or msgs for things not being right or not being there....everything was just like home. Thanks Devika!

We enjoyed our stay at Devika's place, it has pretty much everything you'd need. It's located in a tranquil neighbourhood, and the beach is quiet close. Though there were a few mosquitoes, Devika's kindly left the spray which worked well.

We stayed at Devika's Apartment in Varca for 10 days in Jan 2017. The society is really nice and green, the Fatrade beach is a 10-min walk and there are a couple of mini-markets right around the corner. Although we had a great time and made some amazing memories in Goa, there were a few things we weren't quite happy with. 1)Kitchen: The description online says that the apartment has a fully equipped kitchen which was extremely important to us as we had quite a long stay. Unfortunately we found out that wasn't quite true. There was a single electric-plate and one pot and pan for cooking. There were no bowls, no spatulas or big spoons. But Devika and Durga (the caretaker) were very helpful and arranged some pots and a gas-stove the next day. But it was still quite difficult because quite a few of the basic things were missing. 2) Furniture, etc. The living room was well furnished and the beds were really comfortable. But there were no cupboards/ hangers in the room. It wouldn't matter for a short stay but otherwise the absence of a wardrobe is definitely felt. The master bedroom didn't even have a mirror which was quite surprising. Also, the bathroom in the smaller bedroom was not in great condition. The toilet seat was cracked which is not very good for your a** as it hurts, the paint was peeling off in many places and it could have been cleaner. 3) Internet: The wi-fi didn't work the entire time we were there and it was a major put-off. We aren't the type of people who would spend all their time online but we couldn't do any research for our day-trips for eg. Even stuff like online check-in for the flight was a headache since the internet at the beach schacks/restaurants in goa somehow doesn't work. 4) Electricity: 3-4 days into our stay we started having some issues with electricity. When we would try to switch on the boiler in the bathroom, it would fuse and there would be no lights. This happened atleast 3 times. Also, the bulbs in the living-room kept fusing and inspite of calling Durga often it took a couple of days to fix. The living room in the evening was hence kind of dark and not that welcoming. 5) Laundry/Car rental services: We used the above mentioned services through Durga. Our clothes were unfortunately stinking after washing which was a shame. Also, the guy Durga recommended for bike rental (Mario) was very arrogant and his services were no -good. We got the bike at 14.00 hrs although he promised to deliver it at 10.00 in the morning. When we finally got the bike it had no mirrors, the lights weren't working and we didn't get a helmet so we returned it. Would suggest to contact someone else for bike/car rental. Because of the above reasons, I would recommend the apartment for a short stay.. For longer stays I would look...

Arriving with the family at Goa Airport at 3am during the demonetisation crisis, Devika helped greatly to allay concerns by providing taxi and caretaker contacts. By 04:30 we arrived at Serenity without getting lost. The apartment is relatively large. Two big double bedrooms, two large bathrooms, a lounge and small kitchen. New furniture has recently been purchased and the beds are extremely comfortable. The flat is quiet with a few barking dogs and car horns in the evening. We all slept deeply without interruption. the buildings are set in a landscaped and secure compound. There is a pool, but we didn't use it. There is a small supermarket, Arvind, nearby where you can buy essentials. They were also willing to hire us scooters and change money. The beach is about 15 mins walk away, so it's best to hire scooters. There is one restaurant within walking distance - Jolins - otherwise there are the beach shacks. We liked Chikita the best. The Ramada Caravela Hotel is very close and we paid 500 rs each to use their pool. With a scooter it's easy to reach Benaulim, Cavelossim and Mobor, but we were not brave enough to scoot into Margao. However, Glorio, the taxi driver is on call to hire for longer journeys. We greatly enjoyed our stayed in Devika's apartment.

We had a pleasant stay at Devika's place recently. The place is nice and well done but could have been more clean. The wifi did not work during our stay. The nearest beach is ten mins walking distance but suggest to hire a bike/car to explore the area as it has some more great beaches and food !

I'm a wedding designer based out of Delhi and Mumbai. Bored by the demands of urban life, I converted my grandmother's apartment into our holiday home where I periodically escape with family and friends(and sometimes alone!) to read a good book, swim in the the sea and get off the grid.
