OUR GUESTS HAVE SAID SOME NICE THINGS ABOUT BIRDSONG RETREAT
Andrew and I appreciate all the trouble you took to make my birthday celebration so special !! We were able to do both the bird watching and a visit to my ancestral home/ church ….but most of all we enjoyed meeting you both and staying in your stunning home. Andrew & Marisa Mascerenhas (USA)
I’m not joking… this place has got the whole lot… Village alike beautiful location bounded by a lot of greenery, a classy home in Portuguese architecture with all modern amenities, Proximity to major birding sites as well as city life, Wonderful hosts and above everything lots of birds around. You need to keep aside 2 days to sit back, relax and watch birds that come near the veranda and balcony.
I’m sure that any nature lover will find this place very attractive and comforting… I went with my family and all of us including my 6 year old son loved it. Looking forward to go back there soon…” A paradise to stopover in Goa Manasi & Kamal (india)
Had a lovely few days. Good birding. Excellent company. Will come again. Pam & Ken Garrett (UK)
Wonderful welcome from Raj and Deepak and staff. Peaceful little haven. Wonderful birds. Sit on the verandah and breathe! Breakfast wonderful. Will be back soon. Chris & Keith Deakin (UK)
After being on the road in India for almost 2 weeks throughout the country coming to Birdsong was a welcome respite after trains, traffic jams, airports and the like. You can bird for hours at the property and around as well and it is not your regular birds that you see.
But above all it is the welcome and warmth of Raj and Deepak make this place wonderful. I wish their endeavour many successes and to bring them the enjoyment that it can. Sanzhar Abdikhalyk (Kazakhstan )
I came from Kazakhstan and it is the first time I am in such a hospitable home here. The welcome and the atmosphere I liked a lot. I wish Raj and Deepak health, luck and all the best. Alexander Beliaev (Kazakhstan)
It was very nice to spend time in this quiet haven. I love trees and dogs and felt at peace in the silent surroundings and the occasional hellos by Daku (I wish there was more time to befriend Bijli). Service provided by Shanti, Shobha and Adolf was excellent. I could see that Syprianos was dedicated to the garden – and the results are for all of us to see and enjoy.
Thanks a lot Raj and Deepak, for your warmth, care and wonderful stories! Wishing you all the very best. May this house bring you and all who visit much happiness. We could not have chosen a better place to stay. Many thanks and love. Bela Bhatia (India)
What a good idea to choose this place for our Goa vacation!
The house is beautiful and comfortable, the owners are friendly and welcoming, the staff is competent and smiling, the surroundings are quiet and beautiful. Perfect!
Best wishes for the future of Birdsong. Jacques Dreze (Belgium)
It was so nice to be in the nature at the border of the forest with singing birds all around. Thanks a lot for your hospitality. Monique Moyence (Belgium )
I share Bela, Jacques and Monique’s affection for this wonderful abode and the wonderful hosts. Being here for 10 days was a blessing! Thank you once again for your overwhelming hospitality in Pomburpa. We could not have dreamed of a better place for this historic holiday. Jean Dreze (india)
‘Birdsong’ brings you more music than you would ever imagine to hear in Goa. Set amidst verdant greens and beautifully tended garden this is an emerald paradise. The high point is of course the ever interesting affable exchanges one has with the delightful hosts of ‘Birdsong’ – Raj and Deepak. Much appreciation for the quietly diligent house helps – Shobha and Shanti. Shall not take a moment to recommend ‘Birdsong’ to friends and family in a breath. Much love.Urmi Basu & Vivek Pandey(India)
Made most welcome from Raj and Deepak – beautiful house and garden, so peaceful and quiet Mike and Jackie Baker(UK)

A beautiful house with beautiful people! Loved the warm hospitality by Raj and Deepak and simply adored the dogs! It was like homecoming for me.The place justifies the name and is a haven for bird lovers! Look forward to many more visits. Tanmoy Das (India)
