We struck gold with this heritage Portuguese style villa that is tucked away in a secluded corner of Goa, close to Majorda beach. The pool and verandas of Vivenda look even better in person than they do in pictures. Each room is individually themed with an eclectic collection of furniture and art. The whole house has been charmingly decorated and... More

Love little gem, I keep on going back to this charming place. Simon and Charlotte are great hosts, very engage with their guests. I was there a couple of weeks ago, and I like the atmosphere, the fact that you can interact with the hosts and with other guests.

Lovely main building with interesting and varied rooms around it, a charming pool and even more charming bar. But my room was not clean (thick dust on various surfaces, grit on bathroom floor and gunk in drain) and a few in our party had clogged shower or sink drains (one that totally flooded the bathroom). The breakfast would be much... More

Beautiful house in a lovely location, walking distance from the beach and some good restaurants. I like the Majorda area because it is quieter and less touristy compared with some areas of north Goa. Also, close to the airport, which was nice because our visit was short. Charlotte was very welcoming, and the food here was spectacular. We did enjoy... More

It's got charm, it's got soul, it's got food to die for -- who cares if it's not walking distance to within anywhere else interesting? We loved the unique rooms, our hosts, their dogs, the welcoming family feel, the freshwater pool, the open air bath. Heavenly, scrumptious, glorious.

Stayed in April 2016 after 9 days touring in the North. Situated in small Goan village, walking distance or cycle ride from a lovely beach with great beach shack restaurants and bars. We went at the end of season so not crowded but also some of the shops closed. Vivenda was just what we were looking for; an authentic, welcoming... More

An absolutely beautiful hacienda, done up in Portuguese style by a brother - sister duo. They happily share some amazing anecdotes with you. Look out for interesting pieces of furniture, such as the ancient fridge and the one man manual music box that could welcome you. Excellent service, great food and an incredibly charming environment.

I shared a simple and cool room with a beautiful outdoor bathroom...you may find a frog in the toilet bowl but that is what happens in the countryside. I have been here before and loved my experience so was excited to return. Nothing to disappoint, it is somewhere where you can get away from the craziness of the world but... More

Can't speak highly enough of our experience at Vivenda. The neighbourhood is paradise, and the house itself is incredibly beautiful. My room was Alipore, which has a huge and comfortable bed, and a long, narrow en-suite bathroom, where I was joined by several geckos every day. Bring your earplugs if you're a light sleeper – it's a bustling village and... More

Vivenda is an old Portuguese bungalow located close to Majorda beach restored by British Bro-Sis duo. It has modern comforts balanced with a tour of classic Indian heritage. The duo, from the famous Kolkata Hayward (beer) family, are warm hosts. They have deep interest in India & it is reflected in the home. Vivenda has a nice pool in the... More
