We welcome you into our family and our way of life…

Our guest rooms are airy, spacious and furnished mostly with restored antique furniture. Balconies overlook the gardens and the natural birdlife within.

Our home cooked meals, some over a wood fire, are a culinary delight to those who wish to sample the authentic Goan cuisine.

What we are…..

A naturalist’s paradise, nestled in a serene and picturesque village. Historical places within the village include the 15th century church of St. Thomas and an 17th century fort that once stood watch over the old borders of Goa.

Over the years several domestic & international guests have walked through our doors that include professors, architects, TV news anchors, film personalities & airline professionals.
