We (Sneha and Anuja) run an eco-friendly homestay for travelers to enjoy staying close to the nature, experience many activities in a comfortable, cozy place in 'konkan' region of India. Sneha is an architect by profession while I (Anuja) have been working as a management consultant for few years. We decided to move away from the chaos of the city, live closer to the nature and also share the experience with like-minded travellers.
We share a room in our grandmothers old house. Apart from this we have one new villa with four rooms and a bamboo cottage (it's a one room with balcony over a pond and a private semi attached washroom). These five rooms (four in the villa and one cottage) we give out to guests in our homestay.
Our place is easily accessible by train/bus and we can guide you about how to reach.

Anyone curious enough will get plenty of opportunity to learn alongside us and also apply their ideas in the practical setting. One will also get an opportunity to work along with local artisans and understand cost effective construction techniques with locally available materials.
The place offers myriad activities like working in an organic orchard, fishing, fruit picking, making various fruit products, pottery, bird watching, cycling etc. We also try to grow our own vegetables organically.
Currently, the orchard is completely organic and has about five acres of land with many tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, chikoo, guava, kokum etc. There is an old house where our grandmother has been living for about thirty years, single-handedly taking care of the orchard.
We are constantly trying to improve our customer experience hence there are abundant opportunities to build and shape the place and help in curating the experience for our clients.
