A beautiful drive, the sounds of birds as soon as you arrive, ever so energetic host and the absolute shocker of life in the wilderness with the luxury of someone making sure you have a nice fresh home cooked (over wood fire) meal and to top it the very very important block of ice which kept the important fizzy barley...

Who it's not for- people who search for accommodation of the five star variety Who it's for- a place for people who search for accommodation with a "million stars" (above you) variety. The name is self explanatory- it's absolutely off the grid. Don't expect- internet, electricity, phone network Expect- a very committed host, honestly cooked meals all on wood fire...

This place is aptly named "Off The Grid". This place has all the ingredients for a wonderful vacation. Beautiful location - the place is a valley surrounded on 3 sides by forests, delicious food, completely off the grid - no mobile, no WIFI, only solar power and a fantastic host. It is a beautiful 1 1/2 drive from Belgaum. All...

OTG is one of only 2 places that I have ever visited, where everything that is mentioned on the website is exactly what you get when you visit. The hospitality is exceptional, the food is brilliant, and the treks/ walks are wonderful. We were a family of 7 people, with 2 children, 2 teenagers and 3 adults. There was something...

We took three children, three teenagers and five adults here for a get together. The place is basic but comfortable. The kids were happy staying in the riverside cabins while the parents enjoyed the breezes in the second floor rooms of the house. The small natural pool on the property was great for refreshing dips, especially for the kids, but...

This is a wonderful place that lives up to its name. It offers the ideal opportunity to "switch on" to life and focus on the natural world around you. Wonderful walks, lovely waterfall pool for a dip, no phone/internet coverage and fab food make for a rewarding visit. John is great company and runs a truly "natural" place to stay...

Off The Grid is a true sanctuary. Waterfalls, jungle trails, birds, wild animals, a canopy of stars! A place to reconnect with oneself and nature. Sylvia and John where caring hosts, very helpful in making sure that I was comfortable during my week at the farm. Highly recommend it!

We stayed here in February 2015, and had a wonderful time, v bad of me not to review sooner as it was just perfect. We arrived very late and tired, myself after leading a group tour, my partner direct from the UK, straight onto a domestic flight and then the three hour drive from the airport, so we were shattered....

A friend and I visited Off the Grid a few months back . Although the drive from Panjim was long it was a great experience . The rooms are basic but very comfortable .
