Avalon Inn is set off the main Ashvem - Mandrem road amidst lush cover. The property has been painstakingly developed; evolving from a bed and breakfast to a comfortable resort. The highlight is their garden, which is a result of meticulous care and maintenance. Colourful flower bearing plants and palms punctuate the green lawns. On one end are five bamboo bungalows with an under-the-tree sit-out nearby. This faces the main reception area and the stone cottages. Being a few minutes away from the sea, the resort is designed as a quiet space to relax and rejuvenate.
Avalon Inn offers three kinds of accommodation facilities.
Five bamboo bungalows are set on one end of the property's garden area. They come with basis essentials - ceiling fan and mosquito net with an attached toilet. The bath/shower area is common to all bungalows.
Two stone cottages are set on the entrance of the property amidst lush cover. Inspired by Portuguese architecture, these cottages present cozy sit-outs. Named Opal and Pearl, they present basic necessities to the guests. An outdoor shower is common to both cottages.
The highlight of the property is Villa Joia, a two floor building which houses four spacious double bedrooms designed keeping long stay guests in mind. The rooms on the ground floor called Ruby and Topaz offer an ensuite shower. Onyx and Amber on the upper floor are also double bedded rooms with an ensuite bath and a two seater tub. All rooms at Villa Joia are furnished with modern amenities like satellite television and a kitchenette.
Avalon Inn is owned by Erika Shantz, an Austrian consultant and Salvador Mascarenhas, a Goan seaman. The story began when they met by chance on a windjammer cruising the seas of Turkey. Both had an urge to reivent themselves and found Goa as an ideal place with an opportunity. In the November of 2008, Avalon Inn began operations as a bed and breakfast resort.
