The Loja (shop/store in Portuguese) on the water’s edge was an early trading post. Canoas (boats) exchanged salt and tiles for farm produce bound for village fairs.
Restored, it’s now a self-contained space in the same rural waterfront setting, tranquil yet only 20 minutes from Panjim.
Experience Goa of long ago; early morning walks, cycle in the village; an 18th-century chapel, temple and waterways.
Be creative or idle, watch fish jump, catch your supper, sleep to the lull of running water.

The property sits on the edge of a man-made lake, an example of traditional Goan sustainable practices born out of our love for fish, water and tranquillity. The ruins of the old “Loja” (shop) that we found on the property have been converted to a studio for family and guests.

During the day you may have the company of birds, the occasional hornbill and porcupine, and in the evening there will be fishermen pulling up their nets by the sluice gates.

Wake up early enough and you will sight mullet breaking surface. Beyond this, lie paddy fields, village houses and temples.

The Loja is a studio that will comfortably accommodate 2 people with a well-equipped kitchen. Imagination has been used to design the space for you, with a dining/work table fashioned from weathered planks saved from the old sluice gates and framed watercolours on the walls. Indoors, you can write, read, browse the internet or simply watch TV. You can have breakfast by the water’s edge and cook your own dinner at night.

The Loja is cleaned and sanitised weekly for long-term stays at which time the linen and towels are changed.
We follow all Airbnb cleaning protocols and maintain 24 hours between occupancies allowing for a double sanitisation protocol plus a thorough cleaning of the space.
If you need your baggage sanitised, inform the manager and he will arrange it.

Living/Sleeping space:
Space has been maximized by having 2 regular-sized beds that can be stacked during the day to make room for the coffee table. Call us if you are coming with a child below 12 years old and we will arrange a camp-cot at an extra charge of Rs 500 per night. Bear in mind that you will be responsible for child safety.

Even though the Loja is designed for 2 adults, guests often cite special circumstances to accommodate a third person for a night. In special cases, we will provide the camp-cot for 1 night only for Rs 1000. Contact us in such cases.

Storage, TV and internet:
There is also a cupboard with hanging space and shelves, a small portable ironing board and a travelling iron.
The TV receives selected satellite channels.
Internet is available via a Jio dongle with a stated 150 Mbps download and 50 Mbps upload speeds. The current plan is for 2Gb data per day. Guests may purchase extra data if they need to.

We have opted to treat the traditional tiled roof of the Loja with high reflective coats of white resin paints that cool the internal space, rather than fit a traditional air-conditioner. This keeps the Loja cooler than the surroundings and its carbon footprint low. Remember, however, that Goa has a hot, humid climate.

Kitchen/dining space:
The kitchen has a fridge, microwave and induction cooker with crockery, cutlery, and cooking utensils. Basic cooking material (salt, pepper, cooking oil) as well as tea, coffee and sugar will be available for short term stays.

To help you get started we provide breakfast material (eggs, bread, noodles and milk, onions, tomatoes, chillies, fresh fruit, bread and butter, and fresh local fruits) for your first morning.

You can also opt to have a cooked breakfast at a couple of places in Olaulim.
The manager can inform you where to buy essentials such as bread, milk, eggs, fruits and vegetables.

Modern, with hot water geyser, shower, washbasin, and toilet with hand towels and bath towels. Liquid hand soap, Pears bath soap, toilet paper and a hairdryer are also provided. Water supply is continuous from the mains and a 500 litres external tank with a pump that will tide over short breaks in the mains supply.

Please note, that like all other places in the country, there can be times when the water or power supplies are disrupted for several days - a situation that is beyond our control.

Kde se ubytování nachází

Aldona, Goa, Indie

The Loja, in the village of Olaulim, is on the boundary of an old man-made lake fed from the Mapusa River, a tributary of the Mandovi River. This lake is controlled by sluice gates that are operated at night to the early hours of the morning by the local fishers from the village. Their quiet chatter is a comfort to most guests who are awake in those hours. It is therefore secluded but not isolated.

The village is served by local buses going to Panjim and Mapusa. Buses stop outside the village. The Loja is about 1.2 km from buses that ply on the arterial road to Panjim. Within 1.5 km, there are places where you can buy Goan snacks, have lunch, buy fresh vegetables and fruit, and bottled water. Though within walking distance, it is advisable to have your own transport, or hire a self-drive scooter or book a taxi.

The village is spread over a large area of hills, fields, and orchards. Sparsely populated, it hosts the Church of St Anne’s that was originally built as a chapel in 1752 AD. The Ravalnath and Ganesh temples are a few km away in the villages of Aldona and Nachinola. Olaulim and its surrounding areas have in recent times attracted the attention of architects and artists for its scenic beauty.

The Loja sits comfortably in this setting. Its closest neighbour is the hut from where the sluice gates are controlled nightly by the fishers drawing their nets, and providing a comfortable background buzz of human contact. The light sleeper should bear this in mind. Neighbours on The Loja's other boundaries are a private dwelling and an eco-tourist place.

V roce 2002 jsme koupili tuto nemovitost, kterou přitahují její přírodní krásy a také blízkost Panjimu. Od té doby jsme zpočátku vybudovali studio pro rodinu a přátele a nyní je otevřeno i pro hosty Airbnb. Zůstává zdrojem radosti a hrdosti.
