My husband and I had a chance to experience the wonderful homestay with Roberto, Raquel and family in Feb 2017. Aldona gave us the flavor of a different Goa altogether, beyond the beaches. We got to see things we had no idea existed in Goa - such as backwaters, rock-cut caves, waterfalls. Aldona is a quaint, serene and laid back...

I went in solo for a weekend's stay at Cancio's and came back having gained a family at the end of it.Raquel and Roberto Amaral are one of the warmest people I have ever met and they are not at all (I hope)embarrassed to let a severely under-dressed man in flip- flops tag along to the Sunday morning mass with...

We stayed as a group of 8 at Cancio's House in September. Raquel and Roberto Amaral were warm and indulgent hosts, going out of their way to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Aldona provides the perfect setting for a relaxed, laid-back getaway and Cancio's house nestled amidst a sleepy village and endless acres of farms is a perfect homestay....

This was my first vacation after 2 years and I had lot of expectations from this holiday, along with anxieties common to one who travels with his wife and 5 year old son. My wife did some research and zeroed in on Cancio homestay and I too went thru some reviews to glimpse what our stay may feel like. The...

It was a very relaxing 2 days at Cancio's House. From the get go, Roberto was extremely helpful right from helping book a cab from the airport to arranging for a rental scooter during my stay. The hosts Roberto and Racquel were extremely amicable and hospitable - I was treated very much like a family member during dinner and breakfast...

Even though this was my first trip to Goa, I decided to ditch the beaches and stay somewhere quieter. I decided on the Cancio's house in Aldona and I am so glad I did so. I went there with 4 other friends and we were accomodated in 2 rooms. The rooms are done up in such a pretty olden era...

The guest rooms were well maintained and clean and the house precints are lovely with lots of greenery. What really sets it apart is the warmth of the hosts Raquel and Roberto. Their...

If you are looking for a place to just relax... absorb the quaint beauty of Goan hinterland... a visit to Cancio's House is highly recommended. The hosts - Amarals are not only welcoming, but their warmth and hospitality far exceeds the mere business of host and boarder. I visited with my mother late in June,to celebrate her birthday, and the...

My wife and I impulsively decided on a holiday to Goa. Having been there several times before, we decided to avoid the beaches and head instead to a homestay, away from the usual tourist circuit. My wife is an avid follower of travel blogs and had read about a homestay in Aldona called Cancio’s House, the 500-year-old ancestral house of...
