Mumbai is a large city, it depends entirely on the area that you want to stay. Fort area, Malabar Hill and similar areas will be very expensive for apartments with a pool. The suburbs will be less expensive but obviously further from central areas.
Goa weather end of April much same as Mumbai, hot and humid but rain will start earlier some at end May.
North Goa and South Goa quite different look at Goa site and decide which suits.

Hi there Bridge

Just noticed you are new to the site so welcome to BE and the Indian forum.

As you are looking to travel to Goa you may want to check out the Goa forum as there are plenty of threads on things like good places to eat (and more importantly places NOT to eat at !! )

Anjuna is North Goa, and close to another couple of places called Calangute and Candolim. These are busy resorts where a lot of Brits go, but these days are also very heavily populated with Russians during tourist season.
Margao is the main town of South Goa, which at the moment is quieter than North Goa. If it is beaches you want I would look at places like Palolem, Varca, Colva and coastal places in South Goa as opposed to Margao.
If you want mega quiet try Agonda.

Dread - x

Thanks that's great I write down your email I might need accommodation. On Mumbai at the moment I am looking at the Marriott lakeside apartments but I think they are going to be too expensive just waiting to here back from them. I think I will be in Mumbai 6 weeks maybe longer then go to goa as its cheaper to stay there

Bridge I suspect you need to do quite a lot of research yourself.
Powai lake area is a suburb, and about 17-20 miles from Fort area for inst. Travel in Mumbai can take a long time during the day as very heavy traffic. The local trains could be frightening for stranger.
As Dread has said put a post on the Goa-side for info. regarding there, plenty of people will reply.

... and six weeks rent will cost you more than you'd pay to buy somewhere in many parts of India!
