I stayed at Rishad’s Casa Candolina located in Candolim, Goa from 10.11.2019 to 30.11.2019.
The Casa consists of an extremely clean and well-appointed 2-bedroom apartment centrally located in a new building which has a swimming pool. The apartment is complete with all mod-cons making for an extremely comfortable home away from home.
Added to the attractiveness of the apartment is the personal care and touch that the host Rishad provides to his guests. He leaves no stone unturned in providing whatever needs a guest may require within the apartment and externally with regard to sightseeing, restaurants, places to visit, car hire, etc. Since I was staying there for 20 days, Rishad was even able to provide me with a cook who came to the apartment 6 days a week and prepared a variety of tasty meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
A genuine Super Host with a “home” highly recommended.
First I would like to thank the host Rishad for being so humble and kind by giving us the best deal at Casa Candolina. Me and my family of 5 were at this property for 11 nights and it was truly amazing. The place is beautiful, serene and peaceful. It’s a 2 BHK fully furnished apartment with a total of 3 balconies. The one in the living room is large enough to fit in 10 people. Rishad has made all the arrangements for you to have a home-like feel outside your own home… fully functional kitchen with all the amenities like a huge fridge, washing machine, microwave oven, etc.
Not only was Rishad helpful in giving us a great deal for his property, he was always available on call and messages if we ever needed anything. We always bothered him for a car to take us to places and he always had it booked and gave us a good deal on that as well.
The property is located in such a place that everything is close by – you just need to step out of the society and you have multiple general and medical stores available. You also have a lot of restaurants and the very famous Calamari Bathe & Binge restaurant is close by.
It was amazing staying at your place Rishad. You’re a superb host and a humble human being. You will go a great way ahead.. we would love to stay at your property again and can’t wait to plan our next trip. One thing is for sure, whenever we come to Goa we would love to stay at your property. God bless you and keep you in good health. Cheers
Rishad’s place is a great find, more so because it is in the prime area but yet away from the hustle bustle. The place has good amenities, not forgetting to mention that the cable connection was subscribed to all the TV channels. The place is great for a group of 6. Rishad was kind and quick in answering all our queries. All in all it’s a perfect place for a short getaway.
Thank you Rishad for being so quick with your replies with the queries I had regarding the stay. You have been a great host.
GOA…. My favourite destination with many memories, just got updated with many many more when we landed in Casa Candolina. Simply not an apartment but a destination where you are centrally located in Goa. Candolim beach and market are just a hop away and everything is within reach.
The entire place is extremely clean and full of amazing views. Rooms are sparkling clean. Loved my room and view from the balcony. The pool was cool and inviting. We had amazing fun with all the board games, which was awesome when we were exhausted from roaming around.
Must say, I told my parents to book this place too, keeping in mind that my mom loves GOA AND CLEANLINESS AND HER ENTIRE HOME IN ONE PLACE. Yes you can enjoy all the comforts of home. Be it kitchenware which was really good, washing machine which made us feel happy that we managed our laundry with ease before the trip ended, iron and iron table for the creases to be deleted with ease. Thanks for the first aid supply (thoughtful and caring).
In a group of 6, we found the place perfect as we were provided all the extra bedding, which made us relax. The rooms had the comfort of home and relaxation of Goa. If I were my MOM I would be meditating in the silence of the ambiance. Do drop in and make your memories like me!!
Casa Candolina is one of the best Airbnbs I have ever been to! There is no such facility that this stay doesn’t have! From Board games to First Aid, everything is available here! When we entered the apartment we were so happy because it was sparkling clean! It has a balcony with a pool view where you can sit and chill! It even has a washing machine and all the kitchen utensils and everything if you wish to make food!
Rishad is the best host! From helping us with all the amenities of the place to even explaining the driver the way, he helped us with everything! You will take back great memories from this place!
Great place. Quite spacious for 6 people.
Would love to stay again.
A very cozy and warm apartment with some thoughtful touches to add to the warmness. Will definitely love to go back here for a future stay.
We as a family visited Goa for a small vacation and the place was perfect for us. The apartment is very well maintained and furnished. The pool downstairs was also clean and nice. Rishad, the owner was there to help us throughout and also helped us with getting the transportation arranged.
It was definitely a very convenient and comfortable stay for us. I would recommend families and friends going to Goa to stay at Casa Candolina and make amazing memories as we did.
The stay was simply awesome! Rishad has given thorough thought to all the possible requirements one can have during their stay at his apartment! Thank you Rishad for the great hospitality! The care you took to think about every detail in the apartment and facilities was unprecedented. I would be happy to recommend this to anybody visiting Goa! 🙂
This apartment will give you a homely feel. It is well furnished, neat and clean. The pool is really well maintained and clean. Best restaurants are nearby including clubs and beaches. Best place to stay at Goa.
The apartment itself is so beautiful and cozy! Rishad is a wonderful host and very kind and helpful. It’s at an amazing location, literally walking distance from the market and the beach, and you can find all sorts of utilities. It’s an amazing place to stay in and I’d definitely recommend choosing Casa Candolina.
It was a very pleasant stay experience for all of us. The house was centrally located between Candolim beach and Fort Aguada. The building has a good swimming pool and also a shower near it. Not many residents so it’s a quiet place. Owner and Caretaker staff were courteous and helpful. House was very clean, neat and tidy. Rooms have Good AC, nice bed and pillow. Fans in the bathroom was the highlight in this hot summer. Hot and cold water was available 24 hours. Nice furniture all over the house. Has microwave, kettle and nice cutlery in the kitchen. Very thoughtful of the owner to keep playing cards and other board games for all.
Overall it was 5 star experience for us and would definitely like to stay here again next time. Thanks a lot Rishad for making our vacation wonderful.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Airbnb!
Everything was sparkling clean and readily available!
The apartment is so beautiful, safe and amazing that me and my friends just can’t get over it. Everything was so smooth and hassle free that we just can’t get it out of our minds. Be it the car parking or having wifi access, everything is so seamless that you will not even get to know when the trip is over. The place has got 3 balconies and all of them have their own view. However, the best is the one right outside the drawing room, it was so amazing that we just couldn’t resist and not sit there, be it just for 10 minutes, and this became like a mandate thing for the entire stay. The place is safe, we didn’t worry about our belongings. I am totally short of words to express what it felt like to be there.
All in all, I can say that this place is just PERFECT and one cannot get a better apartment to stay in. Also, the host is always reachable. You just call and let him know what you need, He will make sure it is arranged either the same day or early in the morning. Thank you, Rishad, for being an amazing host.
Cozy and comfortable place. No disturbance from anything.. Calm and quiet. Perfect place to relax with family and friends. Rishad was helpful throughout the stay.. Thx again.. would recommend others to select this place without any worries..
Staying at Casa Candolina was an exceptional experience. Not only because of how good the apartment was, but more because of the overall experience we had and it was all because of Rishad the host. Since inception till end he ensured we get everything possible. Be it car to go around or places to explore. He ensured he checked on every small detail we required and we just can’t thank him enough. A huge thank you for the wonderful hospitality. Highly recommended to all, whether you are with friends, family, loved ones etc. This is the place you need to stay at always.
The apartment is well maintained and it covers all the amenities which are required to make you comfortable and feel home away from home. Also, the location of property is easily approachable and situated away from all the tussle. We are definitely taking back some really good memories of the trip and all thanks to the owner Rishad. Looking forward to stay at the same place very soon. Cheers, Himanshu
Casa Candolina is a true home away from home. Very comfortable, peaceful and an amazing host are the perfect combination for this lovely home. Casa Candolina had all the amenities we hoped for. A beautiful and comfortable home indeed and right in the heart of North Goa. Thanking you for hosting us Rishad. Look forward to coming back again.
This house is perfect for a family of four people, with nice amenities and a cozy environment.
We visited Goa for a family trip with my parents. We needed wheelchairs for my parents and I asked Rishad for help. He got back after an hour of searching and pointed me to a wheelchair rental place. This is just an example of Rishad going out of his way to ensure you have a pleasant trip. He was always quick to respond and even followed up after we checked out. Rishad also provided names of restaurants for Goan food and we tried a few!
The apartment is brand new with latest appliances and comfortable beds. The location is great as both the Candolim church and the beach are within walking distance. The Candolim main street with shops is also walkable. There is a taxi stand just outside and this is where we rented cabs each day. Staying in Candolim was a great family vacation experience and Casa Candolina with Rishad as host made it easy, comfy and memorable.
My friend and I stayed with our families and had a very pleasant and comfortable stay. This place is very near to Candolim beach and the main market. The apartment is super clean with all the amenities especially the kitchen with all the required crockery and equipment. Rishad has been a wonderful host who was in touch with us all through our stay at the apartment. Highly recommended for families who want to spend quality time together. Thank you Rishad !!!

On the whole it was a home away from home. Strongly recommend Rishad’s home and u won’t regret staying at Casa Candolina
Rishad was a great host and great with communication. He was always available and very accommodating of our requests. His place was clean and tidy just as in pictures. Definitely would recommend his place.
This is one of the coziest stays I have had on my vacations. The house has all supplies from toiletries to kitchen. The location is 10 min away from Candolim beach and offers a surreal view from the main balcony. The pool is well maintained. Mr. Rishad helped us from renting cars to providing local tips for how to truly enjoy Goa. I would recommend this place to anybody who is trying to have a quaint time in Goa.
The house is perfect for a family or a group of friends. Located very close to Candolim beach and very close to great restaurants. The amenities at the house were very thoughtful and made our stay pleasant and comfortable.
The place is a great option for those who want to stay close to the Beach and market places of North Goa. It is a calm location within the hustle bustle of North Goa. It’s a 10 on 10 for location. The owner Rishad has put in his effort in maintaining the place – you get all you need for your family in the house. It’s a great place to stay close to the north Goa beaches.
