The 15 Best Airbnb for Your Solo Trip in Goa

In my opinion, one just cannot have enough of Goa. I have visited Goa a bunch of times now. And whenever it’s time to leave, I wish I had a couple more days. People fail to realise that Goa has a lot more to offer than it seems.

From my experience, I have noticed that I end up spending more time on finding my stay. Throughout multiple visits to Goa, I have stayed in all types of places with varying prices.

I feel it is always best to choose mid-level accommodations. The cheapest options usually compromise on safety and cleanliness. In contrast, the options on the higher end are just huge luxurious options which I don’t find fit for solo female travellers. 

In this blog, I have listed some of the best Airbnb rentals which will ease your burden of finding a nice place to stay during your visit to Goa and save some of your hard-earned money.

1. Studio Apartment-Flat – hosted by Sanaa

This is where I stayed during my last Goa trip, and it is perfect for solo female travellers. It is a studio apartment, which means it contains everything in a single room with a separate bathroom. The host Sanaa is a verified super host and responds to any and every query immediately. I had no issues during my stay here. It is well connected to all the happening places in Candolim. So, travelling to any place from here is hassle-free.

Even though this place is just 2 minutes from the main road, there is no disturbance whatsoever due to the traffic. The place was clean, comfortable, and is worth the price. Basic amenities like a lift, Wi-Fi, iron, air conditioner, hairdryer, television, and a workspace are all accounted for.
