Family and friends, with a gang of teenage girls(most difficult group to please!) visited R K Villa last week for an impromptu holiday.The property is fabulous with its private grounds and a plunge pool ! it is situated off the main road amidst quiet, peaceful surroundings.Dogs, geese and ducks add to the charm .We had booked 2 rooms-one on the first floor and another at the top.The rooms are spacious and tastefully done with very comfortable beds and clean bathrooms.The stand-alone bedroom on the second floor has balconies on 3 sides and the girls were thrilled with the views (also i suspect being given their own bedroom to frolic late into the night!) The grounds have coconut, mango and chickoo trees which are fruit-laden at this time of the year.The food was lip-smackingly tasty and very good value for money.On our request, the caretaker bought fresh fish and prawns which were served to us in different preparations( fried, konkani style and in gassi curry).Fresh sweet tender coconut water quenched our thirst.
The girls spent maximum time in the pool interspersed with breaks for playing badminton, walks in the grounds and of course the amazing meals.The beach is just a 5 minute walk which was not teeming with the crowds as we went on a sunday and monday.We played football on the beach and the girls frolicked in the water with a parent to ensure their safety.
We saw a couple of tree frogs making home in the villa ! The hospitality was top order with personal attention by the caretaker and his staff. we even had a masseur come-over for a relaxing full-body massage for our tired muscles and rusty joints. As we were the only holidayers, you can imagine the fun we had as we had the entire villa and the pool at our disposal !!! We didn't want to leave after a fantastic stay but alas work and mundane activities beckoned......
The girls are already planning another trip, hopefully soon.
A beautifully maintained villa, with the warmth and comfort of being at Home!! Friendly staff ever willing to add that personal touch, and soothing green surroundings make the stay extra special!! A 'must' for those who have not yet stayed at this property, and a guaranteed return from those who have!! We had a memorable stay with my mum and family early 2016, and heartfelt gratitude to the owners of RK Villa!! Fabulous 'stay'cation option!!
We had booked the entire RKs Beach Resort for our family outing on 16th 17th April through you. Our experience of stay at RKs Beach Resort was very unsatisfactory.
1. Air-condition not working: Though all the rooms have ACs installed they do not work. The moment you put on the ACs the main switch would trip.
2. Geysers do not work: We had small kids with us and we had specially asked for hot water facility but again the main switch would trip when we put on the Geysers.
3. Televisions do not work: Every room had a television which was not working.
4. Meal Request: We had asked for fish meal on the second day for lunch and requested for fresh fish but we were given all the reasons why they cannot get fresh fish.
5. I asked for the contact number of the person who is owning this property , they connected me to someone, after talking to them I found that they dont care about customer as long as they get the money in advance.
The best thing I liked about RK Villa is its not a commercial property in the true sense,it just feels like you have shifted to your weekend home...where there are mango orchards,cattle and ducks in your garden, various birds chirping in the vicinity. The home cooked food prepared by the staff was too good.The villa is spacious with lot of balconies, where you can relax and chit chat, have fun if you have gone there with a large group. The rooms are average and the hospitality of the staff is good enough.We had a good time at the swimming pool of the villa and breakfast in the open garden area..Overall a very good experience, worth a visit a second time!
If are looking a ***** type quality, service etc etc.. then sorry. Its not a hotel, not home away home, its simply best, and un-comparable .
An comfortably effort-able stay, oh yes just to add no seepage, no mosquito, no miscommunication. The add value is beautiful rain dance, breakfast in garden or even in poolside. pets like lovebirds, duck & pond, hen, dogs, cows will also assist you to be happy here. The staff managing the show here are from nearby villages, not professional but so caring about your need and comfort.
The place is bit (abt 1km) from beach thus the additional beauty. pollution free calm open sky charmed us at first sight itself.
It is difficult to describe the place, if you really nature lover, simple enough, this the place will a lot with all probably modern amenities.
I will visit again.
