Every single detail was perfect, from the delicious home cooked food to the fun activities, beautiful grounds and wonderful company. I spent my days swimming in the pool, kayaking in the bay, bird watching, napping in the hammock and petting their giant dog Max. It was incredibly relaxing and I was sad to leave.

We were a family of five and were warmly welcomed by our hosts Pirkko and Savio in what must be one of the most beautiful properties in Goa. Our bungalow was tucked in the palm groves overlooking a tranquil waterway. The bungalow was tastefully furnished with an outdoor bathroom. Our kids loved the huge pool and kayaked up and down...

Absolutely loved this place. Was the perfect place to stay in North Goa as you escape the commercial resorts but are close enough to visit the beach etc. The accommodation was lovely. Large, unique cottages with outside bathrooms. The grounds were beautiful with a great swimming pool and right on top of a lake. Canoes and kayaks were provided. There...

This gem in Goa provides an ambiance that immerses you in the peace of nature that surrounds your secluded personal chalet, although it is more like your own little house. The en suite, yet outdoor facilities are worthy of a 5 star alone but it is the personal attention to detail of the owners that really lifts this to an...

We chanced upon this as another place was closed. But what a fortune... this is a beautiful place owned by the best couple I have met. Pirkko and Savio are so nice, homely and chilled out that you feel at home from the moment you land here. Cats and dogs and donkeys as pets... a backwater river to swim and...

I hope to return many many times here! Such a special place. Pirkko and Savio and their family are the most gracious hosts, they made me feel incredibly welcome and comfortable. The home-stay is just perfect; rustic and full of character, surrounded by nature and animals, gorgeous forest and water. Birds, otters, fish, canoes! Dogs, cats, a goat and a...

If you wish to explore Goa, beyond the tourist trap of it's busy northern beaches, you could do much worse than come to OB. It's set in a small village, about 20 min from Mapusa, on a 3 acre property on the banks of a tidal creek. Run by Savio and Pirrko, you feel like guests in their home. Pros...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Olaulim Backyards is a homestay with a difference. Situated in a small, peaceful Goan village, it’s a perfect get away from the busy coastal area but close enough to combine your stay with a day on the beach.Our three cottages are very rustic, and very exclusive, set in a coconut grove with a beautiful view on a lake. You can laze around the swimming pool or get active on kayaking, bird watching or cycling. ... more   less
