Olaulim Backyards is a homestay with a difference. Situated in a small, peaceful Goan village, it’s a perfect get away from the busy coastal area but close enough to combine your stay with a day on the beach.Our three cottages are very rustic, and very exclusive, set in a coconut grove with a beautiful view on a lake. You can laze around the swimming pool or get active on kayaking, bird watching or cycling.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights at Olaulim Backyards, a most wonderful rural position. It was a very friendly atmosphere and we met some lovely people whilst we were staying there. The owners, Pirkko and Savio were most welcoming and helpful. They suggested places to visit

Pirkko and Savio are just great hosts. Your stay will be like a house party with friends, space to be on your own and options to get to know the other guests. The setting is tranquil and hosting perfect. We extended our stay and then returned for our last couple of nights.

Our five night stay with Pirrko and Savio and their delightful family and four legged menage was one of the best experiences we have had in our five trips to India. The combination of delicious food and a wonderful waterside setting with great opportunities for walking,

I stayed for few days with Pirkko and Savio - and was so sorry not having booked more time in Olaulim. After all noise and traffic around the coastal Goa (many places, it seems) this would be one perfect place to keep base in, while visiting Goa for a longer period. Very easy to

We spent a restorative 48 hours at this little spot of paradise. Hosts Pirkko and Savio were warm and welcoming and attended to our every need including travel advice. They even welcomed our daughter (living nearby) to supper. The pictures don't lie as to what a lovely spot

Hello, I think you sent this to me by mistake. Did you mean to send it directly to Olaulim Backyards? I stayed there with my partner in January 2017 for 5 nights which was really lovely and relaxing. I enjoyed it so much I have booked to go again in December this year for 10 nights and my daughter will be coming to join me for 7 nights. You and your family will absolutely love it there. If you want to check availability etc you will need to contact Pirrko directly at the accommodation. They have 5 cottages and they are all lovely, but probably "Sunbird" and "Indian Pitta Cottage" would be the best for you as you have a young child and there a no steps to reach them.

can we come there just for brunch and enjoy the beautiful property?
As far as I know, one cannot visit the resort only for meals or for a day picnic etc. One needs to spend a minimum of 2 nights at this resort. However, it is best that you check/verify with the owners. Thank you
