the space

Sitting by one of the last pristine beaches in Goa, this ancestral 75-year-old home has seen only a few minor aesthetic changes during its lifespan. Set in a quaint fishing village, you can experience the old-world charm of the house in quiet comfort.

 

Although the property is located only a few meters away from the beach, what makes the experience captivating is the presence of forests, rivers, and hills surrounding it. The beach serves as a nesting site for endangered Olive Ridley turtles and is, therefore, an environmentally protected piece of land. The hosts strive to help preserve the environment around them, educating locals and tourists alike on the imminent need for conservation.

comforts

The house itself can accommodate up to 4 people comfortably. The two rooms are furnished with antiques – a typical Indo-Porto home. The house features two double bedrooms (one with original canopy beds), a large, naturally lit, and airy living room, a separate dining area, and a compact but fully-equipped kitchen kitted out with a fridge, cooker, and utensils. There is also plenty of outside space: a big sandy garden with hammocks and a barbeque grill under coconut palms and a gorgeous balcony overlooking the sleepy village and its church.

 

Additionally, the property also has three Indo-Portuguese-style huts that can accommodate up to 2 persons each quite comfortably. They are furnished with traditional Indian furniture and offer elegance, simplicity, and comfort.

 

The property is functional all year.

food

Your time here can be as private as you like – the kitchen is yours to experiment in. The house is stocked with breakfast items (tea, coffee, milk, eggs) and a few essentials you can help yourself to during your stay. Additionally, there are provision stores close by to pick up other essential items.

 

You may not really want to cook when you come on holiday – and we get that. The neighbouring ladies are happy to make you some home-cooked meals for an additional fee. There are also beachside shacks that serve up fresh fish meals.

ideal for

The house is perfect for a group or a family. If you want to experience Goa of the past, this place hits all the right spots.

getting there

The property is located on one of the southernmost beaches of Goa, about 2 hours from the airport. Accurate details will be provided at the time of confirmation.

things to do

Apart from swimming in the sea, exploring the village around, and long walks on the beach, we can arrange a guided day hike deep into a Goan wildlife reserve. Walk through a canopy of ancient trees, observe birds, and listen to the sounds of the forest. Along the way, enjoy exhilarating views of the Western Ghats from atop an 85-foot treehouse!

 

We can also organise an excursion into the Goan backwaters along with a local fisherman whose family has been making a living off the sea for generations. Learn a few tricks of the fishing trade, and learn to use traditional methods of crab catching using bait and traps.

 

Finally, we can put together a beautifully curated trip to a pristine waterfall a few hours from the property including a local meal.

 

Pre-bookings are mandatory for all activities.
