About
Born in Yorkshire, England I set off to travel the globe. On my way I met my husband Noris in Bermuda, where we lived for 11 years and have 1 daughter. I always had a love for India and had many trips to different parts. Our dream was to have a guest house in Goa, my husbands home land. In 2008 we bought our house and in 2009 began building our guest house. The view all around is wonderful, lush gardens, coconut trees, which we pluck and make oil, the rice fields and watch the variety of birds and the eagles soar above. We take morning walks at Majorda Beach then have tea at one of the beach shacks and relax in their lounge chairs. We are in the midst of nature, but within minutes we go to the city, the beach and the airport. We love it and want our guests to love it too.
