Rental property in Goa is an affordable service that every foreigner can take advantage of.

What you should pay attention to when renting a property

There are a number of important nuances that a foreigner who wants to spend a vacation in Goa should consider:

  1. Window orientation. If the windows in the apartment face the neighbors – it’s bad. The tourist will feel as if “under observation”. It is recommended to opt for housing, the windows of which face north.
  2. Entertainment facilities and stops close to the housing. Usually apartments and rooms in houses close to transport hubs, nightclubs and restaurants are cheaper. However, if you live there, you should not expect a quiet holiday.
  3. Garbage cans or outbuildings near housing. Such a “neighborhood” is unlikely to contribute to a good mood.
  4. The level of comfort. On this you should pay attention in the first place. In Goa, there is an accommodation of varying levels of comfort. Sometimes, wishing to get rich at the expense of foreign visitors to the aborigines renting apartments, to live in which it is simply impossible because of the lack of basic things necessary for life. For example, in some bungalows completely uncomfortable bunks.
  5. Circulation of air. India is a hot country. Sometimes the roof of the bungalow is so hot that there is literally nothing to breathe inside. Living conditions in an apartment with poor air circulation will be unbearable.
  6. Technical communications in the house. It is important to check before you move in that all the appliances are working properly. You should also test to see if the outlets are working. It is important, because if they are broken, the tourist can not even charge your phone.
  7. Safety. Goa – a resort with a very low crime rate, but that does not mean that you can leave your apartment without locking the door. It is important to check if it locks well. All windows must also close well.
  8. Relationships with owners. This is a very important nuance, which may be key in shaping the mood of the tourist on vacation. In Goa live friendly and good-natured people with whom foreign travelers almost never have problems. But sometimes there are conflicts. Therefore, tourists are advised from the very beginning to make friendly relations with the owners of the apartments, in which they intend to settle.

Food Prices in Goa

The Indian rupee is a fairly stable currency, so food prices in this country increase no more than 10-15% per year. Groceries in Goa are cheaper than in other seaside resorts and in Delhi.

There are few supermarkets in the usual sense of the word in India. Much more often you can find small stores that sell not only groceries, but also household goods. Large Orchad Stores and Oxford are popular in Anjuna, AJ Supermarket in Siolim, and Delfinos and Newton’s in Kandolim. A local peculiarity is that price tags on store shelves are rare. The price is written on the back of the item.

The cost of fruits and vegetables depends on the season and the size of the market. In large bazaars like Calangute Market and Margao Market, there is more competition between vendors, so food is cheaper than in smaller markets. All year round bananas, papaya and pineapples can be bought for 20-50 rupees per 1 kg. One coconut costs 10-20 rupees and oranges, mangoes, guavas, apples and dates are 50-150 rupees per 1 kg.

Meals at hotels in Goa

The system of food in Indian hotels is fundamentally different from what tourists are used to in Turkey or Egypt. There are all-inclusive hotels in Goa, but tour operators rarely have tours there. Such tours are not popular. Vacationers believe that it is enough to take only breakfast, and lunch and dinner are more convenient in local restaurants or in beach sheks.

Regulars in Goa also refuse hotel breakfasts. The fact is that the hotels do not have much variety in food. Guests are offered to start the day with eggs and bacon, a couple of toasts, fruit and juice. There are probably good restaurants and cafes near the hotel where you can get a better, nicer and less expensive meal.

Alcohol in Goa

Alcohol in Goa is legal and very popular. The state sells a wide variety of alcohol for every taste and purse. Tourists especially like the inexpensive Old Monk rum and Kingfisher beer.
