One of the real necessities of travel in India is having a place that you can go to and feel is a `home away from home.`
Godwin and Jenny Fernandes` Secret Garden Guest House has been that for me for years. It has been a place of quiet and retreat in the most beautiful and peaceful of settings in Agonda Beach, Goa.
The family has made a place that takes you away from any of the hussle and bussle of home or travel. For me, the Secret Garden family has provided a safe and nurturing environment that keeps me gladly coming back.

Winter 2016-17

Got back this year for a healthy dose of Agonda!  We were in India and Sri Lanka for four months this last winter, and got to spend a few weeks at my favorite stop in Goa - Secret Garden!  As usual, had a wonderful time, got to celebrate a large 'international' birthday party for an Austrian friend at Godwin's 'Hidden Garden' restaurant, with guests from Europe and North America, and had some nice trips around the region. Just a really nice time.

Still a bit of Christmas around!

something fresh for dinner!

You want juice?

Whoo hoo!  Tandoor Naan!

....and tandoor chicken!
