Panjim: International cricket icon Yuvraj Singh has become an Airbnb host and opened doors to his Goa abode for a one-time-only stay to a group of six people.
Perched on a hilltop with spectacular views of the sea beyond, Singh’s home pays homage to the rich cultural heritage of Goa.
Six guests will have insider access to the cricketer’s three-bedroom holiday home filled with special memories and meaningful keepsakes from his years on the pitch.
Singh’s home will be available for INR 1212* per night - Singh’s birthday and jersey number - for a two-night stay from Oct.14 - Oct. 16 2022.
“My Goa home has always been extremely special to me. While my work takes me across the world, this villa is where my wife and I come together to spend quality time with our friends and family," Yuvraj Singh said.
From its vantage point high on a hilltop, with 180-degree panoramic views of the sea beyond, Casa Singh offers a serene setting to explore the colourful charms of Goa’s sun-kissed villages.
A luxurious pool is part of Yuvraj's Goa home including a swim up bar and several nooks for lazy afternoons spent reading or enjoying leisurely meals alfresco.
Local Goan dishes will be served by the home’s personal chef in the dining room just off the main mezzanine area. The house is filled with photos of Singh’s family and many cricket accolades - including his first ODI 150 - abound.
What makes the stay memorable is a virtual greet-and-meet by Yuvraj Singh upon arrival, an excursion to the picturesque Divar Island on an e-bike, riding through mangrove fields, and churches, and personalized keepsakes from Yuvraj as souvenirs
How to book:
Bookings open at 1 pm IST on Sept. 28.

This two-night stay is not a contest, Airbnb said in a release.
The 2007 born vacation rental firm is closely monitoring India's infection rates and government policies and will offer booking guests a USD1,000 Airbnb credit if it becomes necessary to cancel the stay.
