Strongly recommended by all reviewers and my brother-in-law too, this home stay is truly a beautifully styled home away from home. We stayed in one of the two very spacious & comfortable rooms on the first floor. We had an excellent view of the landscape and the pool below too. The home on a small hill top is surrounded by a semi-forest, with trees festooned by different birds. Its a bird watchers delight just sitting out on the verandah - we spotted flocks of chestnut tailed starlings, rosy starlings, drongos, golden orioles, black hooded orioles, koels, rufous treepies, common iora, malabar grey horn bills, four different kinds of sunbirds, bulbuls, & magpie robins. Besides, the birds, the really cool part of Capella is its verandah (where one is tempted to lounge around all day) & the smallish pool in the front edge, good enough to swim around and enjoy the exercise of a few laps. The staff is ever courteous & responsive. Adding to the warmth of the home stay was the graceful hostess, Ayesha Madon, who unobtusively checked-in periodically to ensure that we were comfortable. Her helpful suggestions on the restaurants and things to do were always valuable. We loved the serenity and relaxed ambience of Capella, and the convenience of it being within easy reach of many excellent restaurants and two of the North Goa beaches. We'll definitely return, most likely for a longer stay, for we are quite over the top about this unique home on the hill top.
