About BirdSong (Goa)

Along the charming inner roads of North Goa, between Mapusa and Aldona, nestles Moira – one of the four heritage villages of Goa. In its winding lanes lie many an old abandoned villa, draped with creepers, studded with trees, exuding nostalgia and lyrical mourning for its long gone Portuguese owners.

We found such a house – not in utter disrepair, but with jarring modern additions. Ensconced amid jackfruit, chikoo and sangwan trees, BirdSong was built in 1804, more than 200 years ago. A beautiful Portuguese bungalow of pillared verandas and high roofs, gardens and pools, it offers the rare delights of inner Goa, away from the usual hustle of beaches and markets. After four years of loving restoration, BirdSong is our warm and gorgeous home let out to discerning travellers.

The villa is blessed with an excellent cook. Personalize what you eat with him each day. The staff can stock up on beverages and a snack for guests if a mail is sent in advance with a list of requirements. All meals except breakfast are as per the requirements and orders of the guests.

You must not forget to request for a taste of the local Goan flavors while you are there! There is plenty of fresh produce and fish for all palates. A quick conversation with the chef will set the right tone for absolutely lip-smacking sumptuous meals. 

You can speak to us if you want to understand the Goan cuisine better!

The sound of Lush trees, and sweet bird songs float in through the day nurture your senses like no-where else.

 Tucked away above the bar, next to the swimming pool, are the steam room and a massage parlour. The L-shaped pool is the happy heart of BirdSong, it’s short arm perfect for small children. A masseur/masseuse can be booked by appointment if notice is given in time, especially during peak season. Use the projector and screen in the bar lounge to make family memories!

Take a quick drive to the nearest beach and plonk on the hammock with your favourite drink and book. Nothing better than a snooze under the tall palm trees! We do whip up cocktails that suit your mood. You can even unwind with a dip in the pool and snooze under the trees!

The 6 suites at BirdSong are distinctly stunning, well-appointed and complete in any form of comfort. Each of the six suites at Birdsong is distinct and individual – evoking the mood of an old plantation bungalow.

Stay at Birdsong and watch the villagers idle past or the kingfishers eat up our fish in the lily pool or catch a flash of the golden oriole or the strut of the magpie robin. Go for a night stroll along the mysteriously silent village lanes or take a leisurely pedal during the day. Goa has a plethora of activities to do depending upon what suits you! The walks and visits to local churches, leaving your mark on the sandy beaches, lots of happy shopping at the night market and enjoying delicacies across town – there is something for everyone!

You can even learn how to dish up Goan dishes to suit your palate! Just ask for it. If you would like to understand Goan history and other locale information just strike up a conversation with our team for a great historical glimpse!

Sight Seeing

Church of Our Lady of Miracles - Church located in Mapusa

Founded in 1594 and rebuilt several times since, the Church of Our Lady of Miracles (also known as St Jeromes), around 600m east of the Municipal Gardens, is famous more for its annual festival than for its architecture. It was built by the Portuguese on the site of an old Hindu temple, and thus the Hindu community still holds the site as sacred.

On the 16th day after Easter, the church’s annual feast day is celebrated here by both Hindus and Christians one of the best examples of the way in which Hinduism and Christianity often coexist merrily in Goa.
