Description
 
Rockheart is what dreams are made of!
Standing in one and a half acres of private walled garden in an exclusive beachfront location, there are few properties of this kind on offer in Goa. A small road meanders off the main road and winds through the coconut palm grove until it reaches the walled garden in which Rockheart stands. Step through the gate and you are transported into a cool peaceful oasis.


 

This beautiful house is the second home of Gita Simoes. Frank, her late husband amongst many other acclaims, is the author of a delightful book "Glad Seasons in Goa" in which he charts the quest for that "perfect acre" in which to re-establish his Goan roots and create their dream beach home, and the subsequent adventures he has building it! Gita is an artist and internationally known designer and the house is rich in style and taste as many of her own works of art are displayed together with treasured family memorabilia which adds to the ambiance.

CHARITABLE DONATIONS
Frank and Gita have always had a charitable cause close to their hearts

Arc De Hope Is an old age home based right here in Goa, which Gita & Frank both helped raise awareness for, while donating generously to. Visits to the home can also be arranged by us if you are interested in meeting the residents or to see how contribution will help make a difference to their world.

As part of her on going efforts to raise social awareness for these cause Gita has pledged to donate 2% of all rental income.

During your stay you will be made welcome by the small team of staff that consists of a cleaner, a gardener/day watchman and night security so there is always somebody on the premises. To complete this homely atmosphere there are two resident family pet dogs, all very gentle and friendly, and whilst they live and remain outside are happy to let you stay in their house!

In the large and completely private garden there is beautiful private swimming pool with sunbathing deck, wooden decking where you can sit out under the stars, and hammocks to gently sway in the breeze for when the short walk across the garden through the gate and onto the seven km of exquisite beach proves too much!

This is truly a perfect property for a lazyday in Goa.

Sara & Gareth Birmingham, UK - Oct 2006
I cannot imagine there is a more tranquil and beautiful place to stay in Goa than Rockheart. You feel as if you are in a family home and the place oozes good times and good memories. After a hard year we will be going home relaxed and rejuvenated.



Please enjoy the house – there is no need to rush around as everything you need is here. brilliant sunshine, hot sand and the sound of the sea. This has been a blissful week with memories of sunshine that will stay with us forever.



 
Jill ,Jakaimie & family - London - Feb 2007


Three generations of our family – from 3 to 68 stayed here in Feb 2007.

The location – near shops, cabs and the Sea. The house suited us very well and the garden was clean for a kick about with football for the boys. The staff were very good with house work and help generally – especially with the five kids! We certainly recommend Lazydays to friends & family.


 
Joan & Guha . England
This is our very first trip to Goa and we have fallen in love with it! After having traveled around most of the world for years we believe no other place anywhere offers such an excellent mix of charm, indulgence and adventure (bird watching, fishing, sailing with the dolphins etc)

Rockheart is in our view (and we have looked around) is the most loveable house in Goa. We will miss it and its diligent affectionate staff.
