Our Family

We, Bennita (Beni) and Ganesh (Gani), will be your hosts during your stay in Arco Iris.

After having spent the better part of our lives inhaling the dust and fumes of Indian urbania, we both decided that there was no place like Goa. Since the kids were only too happy to second our opinion, our shift to the beach state was considered, contemplated and then executed in double-quick time.

After having made the decision to make Goa our home, it took us a fair amount of time and energy to locate the property that would satisfy our myriad requirements. It was after the arduous search of almost a year that we chanced upon Arco and instinctively knew that our search had ended. The fact that the house had not been occupied for close to three decades, meant that it took us another three years to restore the house to its present condition.

Arco has been our home now since May 2009 and matters have been helped by the seamless manner in which Trusha (14 years) and Trikaya (12 years) have transitioned to the Goan way of life.

After having experienced the serenity of life in Arco for the first couple of years, we thought it would be a shame if the pleasures of living in a quaint village in Goa weren’t shared with others yearning for a interlude in their hectic lives and hence the decision to open our doors to guests.

Guests are provided with boarding and complementary breakfast. Additionally, lunch and dinner can be arranged for with prior notice. We are always accessible to offer assistance, be it for transport arrangements, sight -seeing options or just about anything else that will make your Goan holiday a memorable one.
