Come and experience living in a period Indo-Portuguese house which acts as a retreat for the soul. We welcome you to take a holiday or a break at our home and experience the old Goan way of life, on one of the last protected parts of Goa in terms of natural beauty, colonial architecture and local culture.
We don’t have a menu and don’t give you bills all the time, but we welcome you to wander off to where the wifi is weak. We are on an island called Divar where the sounds of birds are still more audible than vehicles and man. The island is accessible by ferries on the Mandovi river from Old Goa, which was the historic capital of the state during the Portuguese times.
Our home is a few hundred years old and we have maintained it to hold its grandeur while upgrading it to incorporate modern luxuries. We have rooms, a dining hall, a swimming pool, a bar, a shuttle court, a duck pond, a meditation spot, and more for our guests to use. We do try to remind everyone that this is not a hotel or a resort but a high end home which operates the way an affluent family used to live in the age of the past. The guests have plenty of activities in the house as well the island from bird watching to fishing and as well as savouring a fine scotch to perhaps a session of Bob Dylan poetry appreciation.
We like to live in the present and invite you to experience this through your holiday.
Your hosts, Jay & Susan
