About the Home

  • If the idea of discovering the art of slow living, one day at a time, makes your heart happy, then SaffronStays Acaso, a 4-bedroom boutique homestay in South Goa is exactly where you need to be. 
  • A happening night life, an enticing sailing experience and an extravagant escapade is what defines Goa, right? Wrong. Goa is also sunrises on the lake, fishing in the river, aimless strolls on the lawns, watching clouds change shapes, lazy afternoons steeped in retro music, wholesome home-fresh meals and anything and everything that makes you feel different and alive
  • Romantically closeted within the tranquility of a Goan agricultural village and the grandeur of its 200+ year history , this pet-friendly homestay in Goa abuting a seasonal lake with the Zuari River flowing just a kilometer away is one where you can fully enjoy the perks of easy, non-hustle, lazy days. 
  • To begin with, the home has a spacious entrada (the foyer) which looks like it was picked right out of a storybook. Walk in and you’ll find yourself in the living room which is traditionally called ‘the sala’. Walking further along this compelling living space that looks like a ‘colour burst from heaven’, is the dining room with a huge dining table that easily seats 10, dominating the room. 
  • The interesting part, as soon as you enter this beautiful homestay in South Goa, is choosing your room! All 4 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms are in hues of Violet, Indigo, Orange and Blue, and in the words of the Homeowner’s daughter, “It feels like a rainbow rested here!” Choose the room that suits your vacation mood and we promise, you’ll be smiling all along. 
  • An amazing catch about staying here is that each room is different in its rustic vibe and cosy interiors, and a whole new experience by itself. 
  • The courtyard in this homestay in South Goa is just the perfect spot for the entire family from toddlers to senior citizens to bask in the early morning sun, or spend your after-dinner scenes counting stars and talking nostalgia!
  • The host’s eclectic collection of books and music is available for your reading and listening pleasure during your stay here.
  • The property overlooks the seasonal Mai Tollem lake which is teeming with beautiful migratory birds
  • Starting your day with yoga under the mango tree, lounging in the lawns in a hammock, spending a night in a tent,  playing a game of badminton with the family or joining in a boisterous game of football with the neighbourhood lads are some of the fun things you can do right here in SaffronStays Acaso.
  • On days when you decide to explore the unexplored and set out to travel the path less travelled, this beauty that spreads across a 2 acre plot will surprise you with little, happy and wholesome things. Like visiting the local bakery on the neighbouring quaint alley, a walk down to the St. Alex Church, sampling local produce at Crumbs, cycling to the majestic Rachol Seminary (Asia’s oldest) or trekking your way up to the massive Braganza Mansion (Goa’s largest and oldest).
  • And last but not the least, relish home-fresh Authentic Goan meals prepared by the professional in-home cook. Every spread will leave your tum-tum happy and satiate your cravings fully!
