  • The property is divided by two parts of the original family who run the show differently and without speaking each others...the left side is very poorly maintened and deteriorating in a deplorable way that is a pity.The other side run by Mrs Judith is on the contrary very clean and well kept..The garden on both sides would need more care and a professional designing so its brought up to its original splendor.
  • The person who is in charge of explaining canot speak proper English nor Konkani And on the web site it's given as free entry , but after entering the place the lady in charge told us to pay 150Rs per hade irrespective of age The house is divided into two parts So if u want to see u have to pay 150rs on one side and then if you want to see the other part you have to pay more 150rs per head
