We found the accomodation to be satisfactory.
The facilities, staff and management of our stay was very good.
There were six guests staying at the property. We stayed nine days, and have no negative comments for the duration of our stay.
Felt like home. Relaxing and comfortable stay. Would highly recomend!!
Bus stands right outside villa. Magdon town is nearly 5 miles away. Airport is about 25 miles away.
Overall great stay.

We arrived at the Florida Gardens gated complex in Colva at 4am 20/02/16 feeling very tired and just wanting to get to bed. Eventually after nearly banging the door down a sleepy young man finally let us in it turned out that he was Urtkash the owners son.At firts everything appeared satisfactory he showed us around the place i must say the villa was spotless but a little dated . The shock came when Urtkash informed us that he and his wife who act as caretakers for this place would actually be living there with us. This is absolutely wrong we booked what was originally advertised as a 2 bedroomed villa for our sole occupancy Urtkash couldn't or did not want too see that him staying at the property whilst we were there was a problem,sadly this led to somewhat of an argument and at 4am in the morning this did not start the holiday off well. We agreed to let him stay until morning and said we would speak about the situation when we had had some sleep. After a bothered sleep we got up to make coffee on opening the fridge we discovered all his food,this led us to not want to use the fridge. Another heated discussion with Urtkash he told us he would move out for the 10 days we would be there but then went on to give us a list of things we could and couldnt do. Don't go in the cupboards in the lounge,dont have people round or to stay over dont leave the place unlocked even when we were in it. He removed all the spare bedding and towels saying we were only there a week and shouldn't need extra,we had the top and bottom sheet for the bed and 2 small towels not at all enough and we were actually there for 10 nights.He then hit us with another shocker when he told us he would be round at 11am every day to check up on the place as in the past his place had been dogged by some Indian's and Russians we told him this was not acceptable so the visit then turned out to be for cleaning purposes which was not at all necessary on a daily basis. We asked him not to go in our room and locked it each time we went out but we know that he went in each time as we set things in such ways that they had been moved when we went back in. On vacating the property we had to sit there whilst he inspected the property to check for damage. The villa is sat opposite a local home that doubles as a farm and a woodworking buisness, this looked horrible smelt even worse and the noise was never ending. The swimming pool was filthy with black and green slime and the so called 20 minutes walk to the beach is actually 40 fast walk on very busy roads. Oh and lastly the aircon units downstairs had all been disconnected.

Firstly Utkarsh who presents himself as the 'Owner' is actually the son of the ownre ( his mother) who has overall control of the bookings. Utkarsh is really the caretaker. This property is absolutely fabulous and is kept and cleaned to a high standard. We booked this , in person,as were were staying in Benaulim and paid £350 in Feb. 2015 for a 2 month stay Jan-Feb 2016. The property is 3 bed roomed but one bedroom is for Utkarsh and his wife to sleep in.We expressed our views on this fact and requested we have sole occupancy of the house for our stay. Utkarsh agreed with his request and assured us on more that one occasion that he and his wife could rent an apartment to give us privacy. 10 months prior to our stay we reduced our stay to 1 month , thus giving plenty of notice. We accepted the extra cost for reducing the time.I informed Utkarsh a few months prior to our stay
that my sister would be joining us for 10 days of our stay ( 3 of those we were taking a tour in Agra) and requested the extra cost for my sisters stay. I did not get a reply. 3 days prior to our departure to Goa we were informed that for 1 week we would have to vacate the house ( the week my sister was due to come to us) into other accommodation as his mothers brother was visiting and his mother ordered us to leave for 1 week! .Apparently ,according to his wife and other reviews,this had happened several times before during this season.Several conversations were had prior to us leaving for Goa but I insisted the conversation needed to be face to face.Also prior to our leaving we were informed that the accommodation he was going to rent had fallen through the last minute and he and his wife would be sleeping in the
3rd bedroom for the length of our stay! Not what we agreed on both counts! Utkarsh offered a reduction for the inconvenience but for us it wasn't about the money but about changing terms and conditions at the last minute having had our money for almost 12 months.We stayed in the property for 5 nights( to be fair Utkarsh left the property about 8a.m. and was in their bedroom on our return approx 10:30p.m) We paid for those nights + cleaning. We were
given a full refund. On our departure.
We are both in our mid 60's and really didn't want this hassle and had to again trawl Benaulim for suitable accommodation for the remainder of our stay. We spent time in 2015 to find the right property for us and the location was perfect. We would have loved to be booking for 2 months in 2017 but we couldn't risk this happening again.
this happening again.

“Enjoyed the stay at Florida Gardens .. perfect for a family”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The host was at Madgaon Rly station. The train supposed to arrive at 11.30 p.m. reached at 3.00 a.m. This gave a fantastic feeling, not having left us to find our way or wait there. The gated villas was superb just 10 minutes to station. Grocery for our breakfast was obtained from stores nearby, having utilized the kitchen. Day time we went out for lunch and dinner at various places of Goa. Self driven car was obtained just outside the villa which worked out economically to our comfort, The TV kept us informed of latest happening via news channels. The facilities provided at the villa was good and functional, The owner did visit us once in a while to check on our comforts as well as to help us in case we need his services. Only the a.c. in the hall conked out but the 2 fans we good enough, while both the a.c. in two bedrooms were good enough for having sound sleep during the hot May month. Overall, it was a fantastic experience having opted to stay at Florida Gardens.
