This is the right place for relaxing away from everything.
We stayed three nights in the garden house because the yabyum beach resort was fully booked. It has two rooms and a big open air bathroom.
At night you hear all kind of sounds from the forest and lots of animals come close (mostly mosquitos).
Although they dont have a restaurant the buffet breakfast is complete with fresh fruit, homemade jams, freshly made juices, etc.
For dinner you can order typical food in advance, which is also prepared with great care and very tasty.
If you get bored or just want to go to the beach or market you need a taxi or scooter. The beach is 10min away and it's clean but a bit crowded sometimes, with sellers or dogs bothering every 30min.
I don't think it is worth to go to north Goa just to stay there, but it could be combined with other places.
