This is a one hundred year old modest Portuguese Mansion, carefully renovated and set in the very quiet village of Majorda, in South Goa. The longest beach, with the most beautiful sand in Goa, is about a kilometer away. We have 7 beautiful, uniquely themed bedrooms, the main garden with a 12m swimming pool, private dining and sun bathing areas at the back of the house, and a tent in the high season.

The space
When you book the entire Villa you have exclusive use of the whole house, garden and pool. We are an award winning Boutique hotel with 15 staff to look after you in every way we can. We have a full kitchen and bar with all the other services you would expect from wifi to laundry.
We can only accept reservations for the whole house if none of our rooms have already been booked individually, so the more notice you can give us the better.
We look forward to having you and your friends, family or colleagues to stay.

Where you’ll be

Goa, India

Vivenda Dos Palhacos is on Costa Vaddo in the village of Majorda. We are one km from the longest and one of the most beautiful beaches in Goa, with gorgeous white sand. There are excellent shacks on the beach and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Including Tendulkar's favourite - Martin's Corner.
Majorda is 25 minutes south of the airport and about 45 mins south of Panjim. This is one of the quietest and least developed parts of Goa's coastline

Ex advertising writer now runs This Villa with his sister Charlotte. Both born in Calcutta and grateful to be at least half Indian with OCI cards. One or the other of us are usually here at the hotel. We look forward to meeting you.

During your stay

Your Hosts
Charlotte and Simon (a brother-sister team in case you were wondering) were both born and brought up in India. They are the fourth generation to live in and love India and have spent as much time as possible here. They will be delighted to suggest and help organise side trips and places to stay out of Goa to their guests who may be coming to India for the first time.

Charlotte

Charlotte loves India and has traveled extensively in it, though there are still many places left to see. Goa’s cultural heritage makes it an amazing place to live and she looks forward to sharing her experience with you. She has lived and worked in Japan, Hong Kong and London, speaks Hindi usefully and is co-writing a book which she hopes to do more of.

Simon

Simon was most recently Creative Director of a large advertising agency first in Bombay and then in Delhi. He has always wanted to do up an old house and turn it into a hotel. What else do advertising people do when they get to forty? Teach? He loves Goa and feels that India is home. He is a budding cook – especially in a kitchen where many willing hands make light work – and his lunch parties in Singapore, Hong Kong, Wellington and Bombay were invariably long and pleasurable.

John
John has been with us since the beginning. He is an excellent Consultant Goan Chef and would do more painting if he had time. He also plays the guitar. Most of the time though he is busy looking after our guests, the fifteen or so staff we have – and us. He commutes from Chinchinim, about 25 mins south of us.
