Despite being told that the monsoon season is not the best time to go to Goa, we had an amazing time here. Actually, probably the only reason we had such a great time was that we stayed at Olaulim Backyards. The reviews indicate it is wonderful at all times of year, but it's probably the best place you can go...

We travelled to Olaulim Backyards in the second week of March 2015. It has taken me a while to come round to writing this review. One reason for the delay was to selfishly keep this place a secret, the other is because we miss India, but in particular Olaulim so much, that writing a review has felt such a final...

It is an unbelievably beautiful place..Prikko and Savio are two best people I have ever met..More than the peace and the greenery, its the hospitality and love of the hosts which make this place special..I will never forget the time I spent here!!! A must visit stay in Goa..

We had the most awesome time at Olaulim Backyards…it has the most surreal surroundings and the cottages are so earthy and unique in their character. Me and my friend spent 2 days and we were completely enamoured by its secluded location, greenery, open air dining and bar huts overlooking the infinity pool and of course the outdoor bathrooms. Pirrko and...

Olaulim is an incredible place with something for everyone. Since I went with a mix of people we got to experience each facet. Aesthetic: the rooms are beautiful, carved out of the hill side with some still retaining the rock face inside. The outdoor showers—from where you can see the lake and the dense tree-tops—are an experience. Chilling: it's super...

We stayed with Savio and Pirrko when we were in Goa during the holidays. I cannot say enough great things about our stay, their amazing family and the delicious food we had! We stayed in a beautiful eco-cottage, learned about local spices and foods (how to smoke fish!), and best of all had some of the most delicious (and healthiest)...

Beautiful location in the Goan hinterland away from all the crowds of the beach. Absolutely loved Olaulim Backyards with kind hosts where nothing is too much trouble. I ate delicious food where I got to sample many foods grown on the property. There were many activities to keep me busy such as, kayaking, infinity pool, honesty bar, walks and bicycles....

Words would not express the amount of enjoyment we had for our short but awesome holiday. The rooms (4) are placed at a distance from each other, and natural surroundings. Open dining area and bar. Food was home made, was awesome, fresh fruits for breakfast, along with Poi and other bread, with some home made jam too. They have a...

We stayed in November 2014 for four nights and had such a lovely time - Savio and Pirrko were great hosts and we enjoyed their company and the food was delicious! We tired dishes that were not available elsewhere; Savio introduced us to the local spirit and took us on a walk around the neighbourhood. We were the only guests...

We have just had two magical days of bliss with Savio, Pirrko, their family and animals. What fantastic hosts. The location is secluded and quiet- no beeping car horns. The food served is freshly cooked and delicious. All organic, and mouth- watering. If you want to be lazy, you can laze by the Infinity pool, if you're feeling energetic, you...

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
