I might have to move out of my place in Mumbai - it's getting 're-developed'. I don't have the stomach to wait for 3 to 4 years until construction is completed. Besides I think the 'wrong' developer has been selected for the project.

One of the places I'm considering is Goa - south Goa preferably. Any suggestions?

No kids. Since I will be living there, nearness to a beach or touristy stuff is not really a priority - water and electricity would be.

The only place in south Goa I spent time in is Varca. I moved around south Goa by car so I never really got a feel of any other place.

Hello,

Welcome to Goa. I am assuming you can work from anywhere, and you would not need to make frequent trips to the cities (Airport, Panaji, Margao). Even if so, being the Mumbai resident, negotiating traffic should seem like a breeze.

If you are looking to stay in the South of Goa, and be close to the cities, I would suggest any of the villages around Margao - Curtorim, Rachol, Carmona, Arossim, Betalbatim, Benaulim, Majorda.

South Goa is still pristine, as compared to the North, and you will not have a lot of Delhi folk you can call neighbours (for now!). If you are a culture vulture and looking to socialise, South Goa ranks a pale second to the North of Goa, but if you can do without the book readings and theatre and live music every third day, you will be fine!

Best wishes.

Thanks. I've been to north Goa a few times in the past 4 years - my cuz lives there. Another cuz has a (second) house in Varca so I've seen a little of south Goa. I preferred the south.

Any idea what a 2BHK apartment would cost in the places you mentioned (rough estimate will do)? I'm assuming a 'cottage' would be pretty expensive.

Please let me know about the water and electricity supply too. I'm retired.

It's difficult to get correct information from people who don't actually live in some place. That's why I posted here.

The local English language paper OHeraldO is available online - I think they now make a nominal charge. Plenty of property ads every day.

What would be your budget for that house? Because of course, you can find things like that, but maybe that's not what's you're after, both in terms of price or configuration.
