I have been going to Goa for many years and have done the rounds of several five star hotels and many of the boutique hotels. This was my first experience at a homestay and now I can say that I am completely sold on the place. Capella is home to Ayesha and Jamshed, who graciously share their place with travelers....

Ayesha and her staff welcome you to their beautiful property, Capella, in Bardez like you were a family friend! The house is beautiful and in the midst of a wooded area providing peace and serenity. For those interested in fauna, there are many species of birds to be spotted in the property itself. The pool is lovely! The ladies running...

This is our second time around in Capella and it was even better than the last time. Capella is not just a beautiful house but has wonderful people living within it who make your time there memorable. The wooded estate surrounded by thick foliage, the chirping of the robins and magpies, the house pets Elsa and Luca make it a...

If you want to do Goa the way its supposed to be done, then stay at Capella. The home, the hospitality, the setting all contribute to making this a sublime experience. My family and I visited for 3 days mid September and we couldn't have asked for better. Ayesha is most giving and warm, and her staff follow in step....

I don't take many vacations. And I like to make the ones I take count. I am glad my wife picked this place. And therefore, I summarize my view thus: To call it just a homestay May be unwise and unjust There's every comfort available here And everything else available near If not better, it's certainly at par With any...

Last summer, my girlfriend and I visited Capalla in Goa. The house, grounds and rooms are beautiful. The host helped us getting scooters so we could drive around Goa (lovely trips). The breakfeast was decent (though little too plain for the price of the stay) But all in all a special experience, that I would recommend, If you want a...

My experience at Capella was both enriching as well as enjoyable. I could not have asked for a better location, with beautiful, lush greenery all around, but set in the heart of North Goa, with easy access to all the key points around. Our extremely gracious host, Ayesha took care of our every need, from arranging airport transfers and delicious...

We spent a wonderful four days in Goa. Our stay at Capella made it quite perfect. The villa is set in a beautiful, lush location and is tastefully decorated. Ayesha is a warm and caring host with a great eye for detail. We felt so at home here that we didn't feel the need to explore Goa much beyond her...

Off the beaten track, this is a charming property with large, generous rooms, gracious hosts, good food and a lovely swimming pool. We stayed there a couple of years ago and though haven't had the chance of returning, would love to go back

I've had the good fortune to have been able to stay in a fairly good number of hotels around the world, ranging from dingy flophouses to five-stars. I must say, Capella is my all-time favorite. Capella is a comfortable, beautiful homestay experience, which offers a relaxing, friendly atmosphere. The rooms are comfortable and beautiful, the food was excellent and the...
