The host and his brother were very attentive and provided all info required and were easy to get in contact. Early check in and late check out very much appreciated. I would recommend.

This was our first visit to Fernlodge, staying for 3 weeks. It certainly wont be our last ! Yvonne, Norris and Anya are the perfect hosts - happy to share their beautiful home and gardens with us. Without repeating everything that has been written by previous guests, we can only agree whole-heartedly that Fernlodge is the "oasis" of calm and tranquility in the hubbub of Goa. It would be very easy to never leave the grounds - happily lounging around the pool, watching nature and practicing yoga (my aim for next holiday), finishing each day with one of Norris's fabulous meals - listening to Yvonne's sitar playing. Surreal but wonderful. There are only three studio apartments in the complex and this justs adds to the peacefulness of the place. Having discovered Fernlodge, we would love to keep it a secret - but that would be very selfish. If you are looking for a different experience to the usual Goan guest houses, then do try Fernlodge - you wont be disappointed !

                                                                                                  5 of 5
                                                                                                  We really enjoyed our nearly three week stay at Fern Lodge everything was as near perfect as you could wish. Yvonne and Noris made us so welcome and looked after our every whim. Noris was a willing driver for us to take us anywhere we wanted to go at a very reasonable price . The Fern Lodge is about 3 kilometres away from the beach about 10 minutes via Noris and his careful driving a tad too far for us to walk in the heat of the day and there was no need as Noris was always willing to take us and pick us up. The room was perfect and kept clean the kitchen space was so handy to cook or prepare breakfast, store the G&Ts in the fridge or make the odd cup of coffee or tea. The supermarket was nearby and stocked all of our needs including beer and gin with gin at about £3 a bottle for the local brew very acceptable variety. We spent a lot of time lazing around the pool with friends. The atmosphere at Fern Lodge was very calm and peaceful especially with no children allowed. It was nice to speak to Anya the daughter of the house when she was not at college.With a couple of nearby restaurants within walking distance and the delights of major dan cuisine available via Noris. I nearly forgot to mention Noris's talent for cooking especially the sea food BBQ at such a good price so good we had it twice! Noris can also arrange pushbike ,scooter or car hire he was also very helpful with currency exchange as the larger value notes had been demonitised there was a shortage of cash with Noris's help we didn't have any problem unlike many people we apoke to on the beach. There is also a washing machine available for guests to use very handy and the washing quickly dried on the racks provided.Fern Lodge is very handily placed to visit Margao or Panjim. With Noris's cooking skills and a couple of local restaurants within a quick walk there was no need to eat elswhere however we did and would recommend The Pentagon Hotel in Majorda or Fiskar both which would need a booking as they are very popular Noris will do this for you.
