About the Area
Bastora is a very quiet, quaint village about a 5 minute ride from the town of Mapusa. Groceries and other household items can be acquired from the town.
Our neighbours are friendly and are very welcoming but we would appreciate very much if you would keep them in mind when staying up late/listening to music so as to avoid disrupting the peace in the village.
Hosts can offer a complimentary light breakfast at their discretion. All other meals, including a full breakfast, might incur an additional cost, if offered. Meals and any additional payment should be arranged directly with your host.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
