Acerca de nuestra casa

Our family of four live in this renovated old Portugese Home in the picturesque village of Moira, Goa. Moira is an emerging expatriate community. Most cafes, restaurants, and beaches are 1/2 hour away, though there are a couple of cafes only 10 min away and a local restaurant just down the road from us. Our verandah is a beautiful place to while away the rainy season, and has been used as a writers and artists retreat before. While our family of four lives here we do just that - live, work, rescue puppies, cook, cry and love:) The exterior of the home is newly painted and the interior is more lived in despite having been painted only a year ago (red earth handprints DO make their mark). We have beautiful antique beds and though the house isn't exquisitely furnished yet it is very comfortable and a beautiful place to "get away from it all." We also have a cleaner that comes in 3 hours a day and a prep-cook that comes in for an additional 3 hours per day. There is also a driver at your disposal, though you would have to rent your own car (approximately $25 per day for car rental). Absolutely no cats or smoking in the house please.

Más sobre nosotros

  1. We are Canadian with a house in Goa, India. My husband, Anand, is a film-maker and I am a home-maker and volunteer with ambitions to do my masters this September. Our son Owen is the family "techie" as well as a dog-whisperer, and our daughter Inna loves doing handstands and baking in the kitchen with Mom.

  2. We love camping and going on long walks as a family. Our favourite holidays were trekking in the Himalayas and hanging out on the beach in La Manzanilla, Mexico.

  3. We love old things- old renovated houses and furniture, and our late Granny most of all :)

Where is it?

Vecindario

We are in a beautiful little village with a Priests Training Centre beside us and nunnery and quaint chapel in front of us. If you aren't religious (which we aren't) then it doesn't matter because the entire service is officiated in Konkanee, the local language, so it is nice as you will come to have a glimpse into the community. There are beautiful walking paths all around the neighbourhood and a bustling market ten minutes drive away. Some cool hippy hangouts 25 min drive away as well as a much visited beach by domestic tourists 30 minutes away (our favourite beaches are up north and mostly closed in monsoon). It will be monsoon time from July 8-Aug 8 so lots of rain, making our house a beautiful retreat for watching the rain fall from the verandah. There are many breaks in the rain as well which make it easier for exploring.
