Hans Tuinman, a Dutchman who together with his Indian wife Sucheta built this spectacular villa, said, “It is very rewarding to be recognized in this way after just one year of operation. Summertime is truly a very special place to stay, a place that has character, an intimate feel and most importantly, a place that offers guests a unique experience.”

Hans added, “All this is especially humbling as we are not professionally trained hoteliers or architects, Summertime is simply our personal idea of the perfect holiday home: relaxing from the moment you enter the gates, but also sumptuously comfortable.”

Summertime is a luxury holiday rental villa in Goa, secluded, yet very easy to get to from the popular Calangute and Candolim beaches. The villa perches on a hilltop overlooking paddy fields and a lush tropical garden, it enjoys two acres of private gardens, shared with birds, butterflies and tranquillity which are fast disappearing even from Goa.

Inside the villa, a double-height living-dining area is filled with light and breeze. The three generous master suites – identical in size but charming and individual in character – have large dressing areas, palatial bathrooms and choicest of furniture sourced from travels to Bali. Fully staffed with a cook, gardeners and security, Summertime is the perfect place for a family or a group of friends to relax and recharge their batteries. Though Summertime has been designed to give six guests a private, serene experience, its abundance of delightful nooks are what make this villa such a perfectly romantic getaway.

Summertime’s owners also run the Solita, a classic luxury yacht available for exclusive charter. A completely different way of exploring Goa, the Solita will take you out to sea to spot dolphins and down Goa’s secret backwaters and past quaint villages – an experience from a more elegant time.

Both the Solita and Summertime can transport you into a novel world, into the Goa you dream about, one filled with balmy sea breezes, soothing greenery, gently lapping water and birdsong.
