The homestay is situated in a traditional Goan village about 3.5 km away from the beach and iconic town of Margao, far away from the touristy and crowded North Goa. The simple yet comfortable rooms overlook a vast paddy field, a few steps away from the main house. Run by a multicultural couple combining the worlds of Goa and Europe, the homestay is tastefully adorned with influences from all the west and the east. The family is a traditional, yet modern one, with immense respect for people and animals, something they expect from their guests as well. Offering a view of the rice fields, this quaint home situated in the South of Goa encompasses all that is “Susegado”- a fitting term for Goans, meaning “chilled out”. Having said that, it is worth mentioning that this property is a homestay, true to its nature- guests live with the hosts in their own home, sharing the same space.
The home is situated around a beautiful courtyard, with two rooms. One of the rooms is kept green in color, located nearer to the main house. This well-lit room, with ample sunlight streaming in, gives it a happy and cheerful vibe. The other room, which is blue in colour offers more shade than the former, giving it a calm and peaceful feel. Both rooms have a back porch that opens up to the green rice fields where one can sit and relax on the beautiful outdoor furniture and sip on your drinks. Both the rooms offer a queen-sized bed, A/C, fan, refrigerator, tea/coffee maker, a safe, Wi-Fi, and a well-equipped bathroom with a WC and a hot shower. The property is functional all year.
The hosts like to start the day with their guests together whenever possible, usually with wholesome breakfasts that are carefully and consciously prepared by them. The property offers both veg and non-veg cuisine, sometimes local and sometimes continental. The hosts use healthy produce from their garden as and when possible, but the rest of the produce is locally sourced and in keeping with seasonal changes. For the rest of the meals during the day, guests can ask the hosts for recommendations of restaurants and cafes close by, which are easily accessible.
The property is perfect for solo travellers, couples and families, preferably no more than four guests. It is suited for those who enjoy the quiet and slow life on vacation, far from the maddening crowds of Goa. If you want to experience life in a typical Goan “waddo” this is it!
The property is set 30 minutes South of Goa International Airport. Accurate information will be given at the time of confirmation.
