Beautiful property. Quiet and tranquil.Set in beautiful gardens overlooking paddy field.
This was our 4 th visit to Fern lodge. It remains an excellent place to stay. Its a haven for birds in the beautiful garden . So tranquil and relaxing.Our hosts Yvonne and Norris are superb hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Lovely comfy bed ,bed linen and bath and beach towels supplied, changed very frequently. Washing machine available . Yvonne gives an occasional Sitar concert in the garden. Very good it is too.Norris also provides an excellent Taxi service. We recommend highly this property let. One not to be missed.
It's always a comfort and a pleasure to have return guests. The friendliness and the joy given by our guests imakes life wonderful.
Our haven takes you away from the demands of everyday life ,giving peace and tranquility ,but with adventure.
We thoroughly enjoy spoiling you with our talents ...like my sitar playing by the pool,lit with fairy lights and candles. My daughter also joined in with a violin piece..Norris puts his talents for a delicious dinner at the pool side ,such a wonderful ambiance.
If anyone has a musical talent you're always welcome to join in !
Norris is always willing to do his "in -home "taxi runs , may it be to the beach , restaurant, city, station and airport..
And we always miss you when you've gone .
What a great place
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.
It was so wonderful to see you enjoy your selves.A chance to have Fernlodge as the meeting place for you and your friends from various parts of the globe.
Noris is definitely a BBQ King after those delicious Sea Food BBQ's by the pool.It makes it so pleasurable when all our guests enjoy a social night.
I hear many times how quiet and relaxing it is to come back (even from the beach) to our tranquil environment.
The pace of our lives seems too fast and our health is suffering ,so our aim give you that space just to "be" , uninterrupted creative peace.
Thank you for Being with us
A great place to stay in South Goa
Before we booked our 4 week holiday at Fernlodge we read all the web information and the reviews. Yvonne was on the end of an e:mail when we needed her advice. We liked the information and were pleased to find everything that was said, was in fact correct. The property is clean and modern, the setting is quiet and rural with lovely views and Yvonne, Noris and Anya are friendly and helpful. The pool area was a wonderful place to relax if you didn’t want a day out and great for sitting round when Noris cooks you an evening meal. We found that walking to the beach or the local restaurants gave us the exercise we needed and we often picked up provisions from the local sellers on the way. If you don’t want to go into the village for a meal then just up the road is a typical Goan bar/restaurant called Johnny’s which is very clean and serves excellent food, we ate there twice. Noris will also cook you some excellent meals.
We were so impressed with our holiday that we booked another 4 week holiday for next year before we left. This is unusual as we don’t normally go back to the same place twice but for us Fernlodge is special.
The best family in a great place
Tengo la mejor experiencia con este lugar. Ivonne y su familia son sumamente encantadores, siempre preocupados por que uno este bien y con todo lo necesario. Estoy viajando sola y este es el lugar perfecto para descansar y agarrar un poco de energías. El lugar lo tienen sumamente cuidado, todo muy limpio, puedes hacer uso de la lavadora lo cual es perfecto para los que venimos viajando varios meses. Les recomiendo alquilar una moto pues el lugar es un poco alejado de algunos sitios. La piscina es deliciosa y tiene una vista maravillosa. Pero lo mejor de todo es la calidez y el cariño con el que te tratan, desde el momento que decidí venir a Goa estuvo muy preocupada por mi llamándome constantemente y preocupándose por todos los detalles. Hasta ahora la familia mas encantadora de la India.

I have the best experience with this place. Yvonne and her family are very lovely, always worried that one is good and have everything you need. I am traveling alone and this is the perfect place to relax and grab some energy instead. The place I have very carefully, very clean, you can use the washing machine which is perfect for those of us traveling several months. I recommend renting a scooter because the place is a bit out of some sites. The pool is lovely and has a wonderful view. But best of all is the warmth and affection with which you are treated ,from the moment I decided to come to Goa she was very worried about me and calling me constantly worrying about all the details. So far most lovely family in India.
It was our pleasure to have you as our guest ,and became a friend .It was lovely to take care of you !
Thank you for sharing your experiences here in Goa.
We are also very happy we were able help you with your yoga and ayurvedic treatments,and afterwards be able to relax in the tranquil environment
It 's good to know you felt so comfortable ,and also that cleanliness is a priority .Maintaining a high standard of cleanliness is very important to us.
We wish you all the best with your future endeavours.
Peace at Christmas
What a wonderful holiday my wife and I had. From the moment we were picked up at the airport and throughout the holiday, we were treated like family :-) Nothing was too much trouble for Yvonne or Norris, who were always at hand to assist, give advice or just have a cup of tea with. All three apartments are situated in beautiful surroundings, with a lovely little pool to take a cooling dip. The apartments themselves offer all you will need, with full air con, large fan, small cooker and fridge. Not that you will want to do much cooking as Norris is a chef and will tempt you with some amazing food. Yvonne will arrange bikes, motor scooters or cars for you and is always at hand to offer the occasional lift or excursion. Anya, the hosts daughter is at hand to giggle and smile a lot, whilst thinking up more mischievous plans. She is also a willing hand at cards or other games.The beach is ten minutes away and is very quiet, but with good friendly shacks, serving drinks and food all day and night. There are towns and villages near by you can visit, to shop or just meet the locals. There are so many wonderful places to eat, all within easy traveling distance. All in all this is a stunning place to visit, tranquil, lazy, fun and friendly. We had a very peaceful Christmas and would love to visit again. Thanks. Ian and Tina xx
Thank you so much for being here ,for being part of our family ,and we are so happy that your holiday was just how you wanted it be , just to "BE", instead of all that doing !
It was a wonderful time over Christmas and New Year here , together with all the other guests,going out to dinner ,Christmas day at the beach ,and watching the fireworks down at Majorda Beach for the New Year .
The Classical Indian Music concert in the garden was a real treat and glad you all enjoyed it .I'm planning more events for the future,by then I will have improved with my sitar playing !
We like to promote India for it's music ,art & culture ,and not to mention food.
We really look forward to spending time with you again in the near future .Best wishes.xx
Beautiful, peaceful and friendly
My stay at Fernlodge was amazing. Yvonne, Norris and Anya are a delightful family who take extra care in the upkeep of the property, providing local guidance and most importantly creating a feeling of welcome every day. The property is stunning, the apartment has all the amenities you'd need and Norris is an excellent cook too!
I have stayed at many vacation rentals over the years and often find the places look better in the photos but at Fernlodge it is exactly as the photos appear - beautiful! I highly recommend staying here if you come to south Goa. The beaches close by are wonderful.
