Alexhouse is our beautiful old Goan village home with thick laterite walls, wooden roof with terracotta tiles, and deep maroon floors. It is set in a little vaddo in North Goa with its own Chikoo tree, secret garden and a cute little plunge pool. A 3 bedroom home with gorgeous art and abundant with spaces to lie back, relax and enjoy a sense of susegad.
Our home is discreetly divided to provide our guests with a private unit towards the front of the house. The space comprises a lovely Goan style balcao with stone benches to sit down and enjoy the monsoon breeze while watching the world go by. The balcao opens into an anteroom, with gorgeous high ceilings and art on the walls. This room leads to a Goan style bedroom for two, with a queen sized wooden bed, an antique armoire, a work table and chair and its very own sitting area.
To the other side of the anteroom is our cosy living space, which doubles as a single bedroom. This is set up as our Radio/AV headquarters with a home theatre system, a TV and our mega drive of films, documentaries and series. Guests will also have access to our much treasured library of books, coffee table books, magazines and games. The living area leads to a generous sized tiled bath.
Being an old village house this is an ideal setting to absorb the typical Goan way of living; the sound of rain beating down, the dancing of monkeys on the roof, the occasional millipede around the house and the sweating walls in the monsoon !
Please note that our home is where we bring together and celebrate our love with mementos from our travels and our priceless collection of Art, photography and books. We hope that you will treat our home with kind consideration and care.
Toegang voor gasten
Guests will have exclusive access to the front portion of the house which has a separate entrance. The back of the house is occupied by my husband Aditya and I and is our (mostly) private residence.
Guests are welcome to access all the common areas such as the pool (in season), the garden, and the garden balcao - which is the heart of our home.
We are happy to share our perfectly brewed cup of coffees, our fast wireless Internet connection, electricity back up, and an endless supply of clean drinking water in quirky glass bottles - so no plastic bottles can tempt you while in Goa ;)
