Guestbook comments from the manager
The apartment is very spacious and well kept. The owner, Subhash is very warm and friendly and helped us in every way he can. He guided us and gave us a lot of advice and ideas on how to go about in Goa. It was just like staying in our own house.The gardens and the swimming pool well maintained. The resort is very quiet and peaceful.



I and my teenage son stayed here for 3 weeks. We had a wonderful time. This resort complex is very unique and private. I would definitely recommend the cottage and the resort as a fantastic holiday place.
