It’s been a dream to have a home close to the beach. A place I can lounge with a book, relaxing in the planters chair with legs propped up. Surrounded by my heritage, things I have been hoarding for ages, memories of me and my brother venturing into our attic collecting all the discarded antiques and quaint things that appealed to me. The handbag woven by my grandmother, the ancient frames, the kitchen utensils my daughter wouldn’t even know about, the old heavy lock that was used to lock my grandpa’s shop, the measuring cups and so many more memories.
Now I have all these and more in my home in Mangalore. A place that’s serene but bang in the middle of the city, a place surrounded by trees sometimes visited by peacocks and monkeys, stones throw away from the ferry ride to the beach.
A place I’m longing to stay in and share with the world. If you want to stay here, swinging in the balcony enjoying my garden, having conversations over authentic Mangalorean breakfast and just being in this home it’s time to make a trip to Mangalore. A place of temples, beaches, heavenly coastal cuisine, art, culture and heritage.
Stay with us, enjoy our hospitality and experience Mangalore.
