Thank you Savio and Pirrko for being such gracious hosts, you took great care of me and my two children. I had such a relaxing weekend and the boys loved all the animals, the pool and the kayaking! You made us feel so welcome in your home, we will definitely be back! Thanks also to KOKOindia for organising the trip...

Just got back from a blissful weekend away with family at Olaulim Backyards. Set amidst the Goan countryside, this tranquil oasis takes you away from the bustle of Panjim to 4 beautiful cottages set on the water and the charming hospitality of hosts Pirkka & Savio, who seem to know exactly what you need before you do! Relax and indulge...

Apologies for our late review. Quite coincidently, we stayed at the same time as Amanda & kids (see below review from Amanda15Cardiff) and we would echo her sentiments fully. Savio & Pirkko made us feel most welcome and as well as serving up wonderful food and maintaining a friendly atmosphere, they provided us with a chance to unwind and enjoy...

We had the most wonderful holiday ever, thanks to Savio and Pirkko's beautiful home stay. They took such wonderful care of us, loved the food, and the dining table conversations with them. The place is just perfect to experience goa in the monsoons, as my friends and I did. The lake with the slushy clayey soil was such a thrill...

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...

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.

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...

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
