Despite being a stone’s throw away from the hot spots of north Goa, Summertime is an oasis of peace and serenity. Located in a quiet, green and forested area full of birdlife, the villa is a perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries. No matter where you are in the villa, the views are lush tropical gardens and the pools. It is a joy at any time of the day, whether you are waking up to the birdsong, feeling the breeze as you sit under a tree, or watch a koi fish jump up.

The space
A few years ago, our Summertime villa won the award for "Asia's Most Romantic Boutique Retreat", from World Boutique Hotel Awards (WBH) in London.

It was very rewarding to be recognized in this way as a very special place to stay, as a place that has character, an intimate feel and most importantly, a place that offers guests a unique experience.

All this was especially humbling as we are not professionally trained hoteliers or architects and Summertime is simply our personal idea of the perfect holiday home: relaxing from the moment you enter the gates but also sumptuously comfortable.

Located just a stone’s throw away from the popular Calangute and Candolim beaches, Summertime perches on a hilltop overlooking paddy fields and a lush tropical garden. Summertime is a rare villa which enjoys two acres of private gardens, shared with birds, butterflies and peace. There is a large infinity pool which overlooks the gardens and the valley, a waterfall and a koi pond.

Inside, a double height living-dining area is filled with light and breeze. The three generous master suites have large dressing areas, palatial bathrooms and choicest of furniture sourced from our travels to Bali and other places through India. Fully staffed with a cook, gardeners and security, Summertime is a perfect place for a family or a group of friends to relax and recharge their batteries.

Guest access
Summertime is set in two acres of landscaped gardens with an infinity pool, lounge pool, koi pond and waterfall. There is also an organic veg/herb garden across the road. All of this can be enjoyed by our guests.

Under the pool is a private apartment with its own entrance and garden. This area is clearly marked as private and we expect guests to respect this. Prakash, our caretaker has a self contained room with ensuite bathroom just off the kitchen. We ask you to respect his privacy too.

Other things to note
It is very important for us that our guests understand and appreciate the character and location of our bungalow: it is a place for people who love nature, not party seekers. We do not allow loud music, drugs or outside visitors. If this appeals to you, then we would be delighted to welcome you at Summertime.

Location

Calangute, Goa, India

Summertime is located on possibly the last green area of Calangute. In at attempt to do our bit of conservation, we have planted a huge number of trees and plants.

The sounds you will hear mainly will be birdsong and even the cry of peacocks, church bells and on some weekends, prayers from a nearby retreat center.

Yet this oasis of peace and serenity is just a few minutes' drive away from the restaurants and shops of Calangute. Mapusa and Panjim are 20 minutes' drive away. The airport is an hour's drive away and the Thivim railway station is 45 minutes' away.

Hi, I am Nora. I have been working for a number of years with Hans & Sucheta who own a company that specializes in designing tailor-made tours in India. For the last three decades they have travelled the length and breadth of the sub-continent to find exciting and unusual places to stay in some of India's most beautiful and fascinating locations. So maybe it is no wonder that at one stage they wanted to build their own bungalow where they could receive guests. I now have the great job of villa manager so I look after all reservations for the villa. Summertime villa will appeal to friends and families looking for a home away from home with outstanding personalized service and a superb location. Hans & Sucheta also own a classic 42 ft. motor yacht, Solita, which is available for charter and Summertime guests get a priority.

During your stay
We live in "Aranya", a two acres property almost adjacent to Summertime and our Odyssey Tours' office is a two-story yellow bungalow just across the road. So we are close by in case you need us but we like to give guests their space so that you can feel Summertime is truly your own.

Our villa Manager, Nora, will welcome you on arrival and introduce you to the villa and its various amenities. She will also introduce you to the house staff who will be looking after you during your stay.

You will find a detailed dossier in the living room which includes suggestions of places to go and things to do in Goa. You can always call Nora for any further help and suggestions.
