About this listing

You’ll love our home because of its gorgeous setting-paddy fields to one side, a thicket of trees on the other and a landscaped garden on the third. You are surrounded by a verdant Goa year round, within easy driving distance to Panjim (7kms) and Candolim beach (8kms).

Designed as a residence-cum-studio, couples who'd like to getaway and work offsite, or people simply looking for some quiet, while exploring and absorbing the beauty of North Goa. Not suitable for children below 2 years.

The space

The apartment is part of a 2-bedroom, ground-floor unit (neighbouring Porvorim) in North Goa, that can accommodate four adults comfortably.

Part of a residential complex less than 7-years old, it is situated in the very last building in the complex - one that overlooks the rice-fields (planted out during the Monsoon). It has all the advantages of being part of a year-round residential community (security, stable internet connection, grocery store) just off the national highway 17, while enjoying the quiet and views of pastoral Goa.

Our home was recently freshly re-painted, with mesh windows and doors installed to allow a breeze throughout the day, minus visits from the insect world. Furnishing the interiors continues to be a slow and joyful work-in-progress, with a mixture of found, bought and DIY pieces that make up the decor.

The living room opens out onto a balcony ideal for a quiet cup of tea to begin the day, or to watch the setting sun. We particularly enjoy listening to the myriad birdcalls that rend the air, or watch the neighbouring brood of hens, forage. (Keep an eye out for the large yellow-beaked Hornbills!)

A short flight steps off the west side of the balcony gives you private access to the communal lawn and garden.

Hot water in the bathroom is supplied from the solar-heated water tanks on the rooftop. (Please note: the cold water in the pipes will need to allowed to flow for a couples of minutes before hot water comes through).

Guest access

You will have a private room with non-attached bathroom to yourself.

Interaction with guests

This is my home and you will be sharing my space for the duration of your stay. If I am travelling, Trisham, my co-host will greet you at the time of check-in and show you around the apartment. He is your go-to person via phone or a short (2km) walk away if you need any other information during your visit.

The apartment is looked after by Sheila, the housekeeper. She lives nearby and comes in to clean for an hour (4:30 - 5:30PM) five days a week. Please note she does not do the dishes so do not depend on her to wash your tea-cups.

For any assistance, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us any time over the phone, email or via Airbnb. One of us will respond to your queries promptly and make sure you are comfortable and well taken care of.

Other things to note

> We rarely have power outages in this neighbourhood. However the apartment has an inverter backup for lights and fans. Please note: no power back-up for the wi-fi router and aqua guard.

> We have poor reception/cell service for Airtel service providers at our house. You may find it difficult to make phone calls. We recommend going into Living room or onto the balcony for the strongest signal strength.

It was an awesome stay at nomita's place.... We loved it. It is just as described and the perfect hideout needed After a day/night out in the busy grooving goa culture. It was like our little peace of the day. Would certainly recommend to all and I would myself be back next time am there. A special thanks to Manoj... The contact nomita provided for taxi, who helped us with everything more than a taxi alone... He was guide for everything we needed and was there all times I called him even though he wasn't feeling well.

Nomita's apartment was exactly the kind of space that we were looking for. Definitely a great place to stay. Clean rooms, nice kitchen and a small garden. Trisham is a humble guy and was always available to the calls. We fell in love with her apartment, so peaceful it was. Would recommend this place to everyone :)

It was a great place. Definitely "Home away from Home". Panjim, Baga, Calangute, Candolim beach all are at a distance of equal radius. Hiring a vehicle is recommended. Awesome garden,kitchen,clean rooms. Trisham was a nice and humble guy and was always available to the calls. Definitely the stay made my experience a memorable one. Thanks !!

We had a wonderful time at Nomita's place. Her home is great to get away from the hustle bustle of touristy Goa (about 20 minutes away by car/bike) and yet be close enough to good restaurants. Nomita's friend was there to give us the keys and he was extremely helpful in showing us everything we needed to know plus tips about places to visit or eat (especially since some restaurants are closed during the monsoon). The house was exactly as she described: it had a positive vibe, enough space, minimalist and tasteful with a decent good internet connection. The desks were an added bonus as we attempted to get some work done.

I am somebody who likes to keep things simple - a good book, a nice long walk, a consistent yoga practice and good food make for a happy day. A graphic designer and organic gardener, by profession, I've spent the last several years travelling within India on different projects - often to small villages and towns that allow me the quiet I thrive on.

I travel light and slowly - preferring to spend a length of time exploring one place, allowing it to reveal itself to me. I enjoy being in Nature and often find a park or trail that becomes my refuge, especially while in big cities.

Having lived a traveller's lifestyle I found that I also enjoy hosting people. Sharing my experience of the place I call home and continuously discovering it through the experiences of my guests is delightful. My continued interest in sustainability and my experiment in minimalism is reflected in the decor and systems put into place for the smooth running of my home.
