My name is Shane Gama Pinto. Our place that we call 'Casa Gama Pinto' is a Heritage House over 400 years old.
My parents and I reside in a section of our heritage house. Our family have lived in this house for generations. One wing of our house was donated to the 'Franciscan sisters of Christ King' who currently run a home for the aged called KristRaj Bavan in that wing.
The rooms we have listed are in a modern cottage extension of our heritage house that mimics the charm of the main house mixing modern with traditional
touches to complement with the Heritage structure.
We personally attend to our guests needs whenever possible.
