Started by a couple from Mumbai, Hardika and Anirudh, this vintage house has been restored to its former glory over the last few years. Wanting to escape the rat race, the couple moved to Goa and made this their home. While they occupy the basement, the first floor is open to guests along with their independent garden cottage.
