Carlos and Merlyn…Congratulations and thank you for hosting us at your spectacular residence…we could not ask for anything more…the amazing aviary, wide range of plants all painstakingly labelled, staircases leading down to the lower vantage locations each with amazing visual treats, statues including a replica of Christ the Redeemer, the swimming pool, and the best part of all…the private riverfront...

The standard of cleanliness was better than most hotels I have stayed in in India. We were just happy to roam around the village saying hello to the locals who were...

Serene surroundings in an ancestral home, with excellent hospitality by the host and his family. After the hustle and bustle of Chennai, it was nice to experience Goan village life. Country walks around the property, fishing , swimming or just lazing around after a sumptuous breakfast. The town and beach are a short distance away. Me I just wanted to...

For a start, it was such a relief to know that we would be picked up from the Dabolim airport at that awful and unearthly hour of 2.30 AM GB continued to meet our every need and request so willingly throughout...
