Our Story

Shane Vaz is a Goan native brought up in Bombay and initially worked in the Middle East. He works closely with NirvanaAbode clients and is an expert when it comes to both, interior spaces and listing properties.

Marlon Moraes is a Goan native, who belongs to one of the oldest and most well-known families in Goa. He is passionate about helping people find their perfect home and loves guiding them through the entire process.

Nirvana Abode was conceptualised in 2017 after purchasing 4 houses in Goa. These properties were listed on Airbnb for over a year to conduct market research and study the workings of the hospitality industry. In 2021, Nirvana Abode was registered as a fully-functional homestay and guesthouse business in Goa with over 100 properties listed.
