“Didn't want to leave.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

As with all the others reviews on here about Casa Susegad, it really is not difficult to find a multitude of good things to say about Carole and Norm and their beautiful home. We arrived at Margaon station on the overnight train from Mumbai and were picked up by lovely Ramdas the driver - a short car jouney and we were soon sat outside our room on our own little terrace having tea and lunch. The local surrounding village is very nice but as we were knackered from our train journey and with very little sleep we spent our 2 days at CS doing very little other than lazing by the lovely pool and eating! The food is out of this world. Dining by candlelight with nothing but the sounds of the toads in their pond for company. A particular mention needs to be said about the smoked mackerel pate which C&N made from mackerel that they smokes themselves - it was a particular fave for me and my boyfriend. Carole and Norm are the perfect hosts - never imposing but always on hand if you want to ask anything about anything. Would recommend in an instant and seriously hope to return one day. Oh yes and one more thing for any football fans - the guests lounge has Sky Sports so we were pleased about that! (Be warned though Norm is a Spurs fan............!)

Norman, Carole and the staff make this a really gorgeous stay - added to which the house and setting are beautiful. Was worried about distance from beach - but a 20-30 min drive through lovely countryside got us there and gave a taste of village/town life which you miss if only on or near the beach. Majorda beach was great - a handful of good shacks, gorgeous clean beach and sea and quiet. Visited Patnam and Palolem, but returned very happy with our choice of location and accomodation. Lots to do in and around the Casa Susegad: fishing was obviously a real treat. Had an excellent yoga session and very good massage. Would return in a flash.

It is with great reluctance that I write this review, adding to the great throng of eulogising visitors to Casa Susegad who heap praise on Norman and Carole and their beautiful home and wonderful staff. Why people can't just keep this little piece of heaven to themselves and say it was rubbish I don't know. At the risk of being unable to return to this nirvana because it is permanently full to the rafters with Trip Advisor groupies it cannot be denied that Carole and Norman have nailed it on the "art of elegant idleness" front. They are the most wonderful hosts and put so much effort into making sure each visitor is looked after with sensitivity to their wants and needs; advising on interesting things to do, arranging transport, Yoga, a massage etc etc. We visited last year and came back for more this year. It was so good to see Ramdas' (Casa Susegad's no 1 driver) smiling face as we were spat out of the doors at Goa airport and half an hour later to pull up to the front of this beautifully restored Portuguese house in the peaceful (well almost if you don't count the high spirited chatter coming from the kitchen) Loutulim countryside. This is the perfect place to unwind and take in the sights and sounds of the surrounding jungle while being looked after by a wonderful team, especially the alchemist in the Kitchen, Joanita whose Indo european cooking is a serious threat to my marriage to my food loving husband. The sound of flip flops bringing your delicious supper to a candle lit table outside your room as the moon rises over the palm trees while sipping a very quaffable glass of Indian Sav Blanc is frankly as good as it gets. Thank you also to Jay, Peter, Alex, Rosario, Maria Romana, Anita, Felicidade, Florinda and Sarla for your gentle smiling ministrations making it almost impossible for us to leave but almost certain we will be back for more.

Briefly consult your Portugese dictionary for the meaning of the word 'susegad' and you'll find the reason for staying in Norman & Carole's Casa. Away from the crowded beaches but close enough to the more quiet southern ones Casa Susegad is perfectly located to enjoy more of the real Goa in the nearby countryside. Carole & Norman have succeeded in creating a comfortable Indo-european mix of old Indian furniture, lazy sixties sofa's, books, games, dvd's and even a snooker table. Adequate luxury with a nice pool and great sunbeds. Carole's dishes are delicious (but dont forget to mention if you are spice sensitive), Dining at the huge dinner table in the dining room at times enables an easy contact with your fellow visitors. The relaxed athmosphere is that of a family pension, not a hotel. A great place to rent all five rooms for a visit with family members or friends. All this is enthousiasticaly supported by a pack of very friendly dogs, cats and frogs (if you are lucky some monkies as well) and a friendly staff.

This is my first review, and for casa susegad, i wanted to do it !
Do you love big hotels? Do you like noisy apartments and crowded places ?Then FORGET about Casa susegad !!!
I dont know really what to add, as everything was already said...
I just can say that I was so lucky to find casa susegad and I cannot imagine someone that would not love it...

very beautiful house, in a beautiful village, no tourist (apart from us !), super nice people, and Carole and Norman the best advisors you would need ! and so nice and friendly...!
The idea, the recommendations for the visits are also just great...
Have been to the south near Palolem to a beautiful quiet beach, upon advices from them ;-)
(lucky me!)
been visiting the temples with Ramdas the driver, who is so nice and telling you the stories of the culture... also with him we went to the saturday night market with all the guests of the house ! This is also the charm of casa susegad ! just do whatever you want, but if you want you just meet great people !
the food was also amazing, and the staff adorable...
the gardens are just amazing, the swimming pool, the house... everything is so beautiful...
I am looking forward to go back again!

also the location is perfect, very central, to go to south or north Goa !
Do not hesitate, just go and you wont be disappointed !!

and don't forget to go for a walk in the village via the path in the jungle ;-)
Norman will tell you the road !!!
