Interaction with Guests

We are always around the place when you need us. We enjoy your company and hearing of your travel adventures.We often go out with our guest ,taking them somewhere off the beaten track . We have had guests that have had hip replacements and unable to walk far ,so often we drop then off at the beach ,and may be join them . Some couples loved to dine with us or just have a drink,so we all sit by the pool or in the garden. Noris (owner ,chef,driver ,and my husband !!!) loves to cook food from around the world ,and nothing is too much .There is a separate kitchen for him too !

The Neighborhood

It is a very private area ,no houses overlooking the pool and garden ,and we are surrounded by nature .Here the experience is relax ,rejuvenate ,catch up on a book .There's a library on the veranda . The gardens promote a well being and invite you to do yoga or meditation too. The beach is 5 minutes away by scooter and by cycle about 15 minutes ,a great way to see the local countryside ,and keep fit ! We are far enough away from it all ,but close enough to all the amenities .

Getting Around

We are tucked away in the village of Dongorim ,Majorda ,from the main roads there are frequent buses to other village and city. The railway station is in Majorda village (fast trains do not stop here e g. Mumbai ) . We pick up and drop off at the airport,as per taxi rate. We can organize scooters/taxis for longer sight seeing tours. And we are always there to help you get to where you'd like to go .

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
