Elsewhere dates back to 1886 when Anjelo Zeferino Sequeira bought 80,000 sq mts of land for the total sum of Rs 2,000. Later, after inheriting the property it was divided in half between Anjelo’s two sons – Dr Francisco Joseph Sequeira, a gynecologist, and Luis Gonzaga de Santana Sequeira, a priest who lived in the neighbouring house until the late 1950s. Father Sequeira had his own canoe, which he used to cross the creek and say mass in the Mandrem church. The hotel is now managed by Anjelo Sequeira’s great great grandson. Located in North Goa, about 30 minutes drive from Calangute, Baga or Panjim, the hotel is cut off from the mainland by a salt water creek. Access to Elsewhere is via a 70 meter long wooden foot bridge across a creek. Elsewhere has four beach houses and three tents. All the four houses are built in a traditional style with thick cool walls, shuttered windows, cool natural flooring, and lofty terracotta tiled sloping roof. The Otter Creek Tents face the creek, which runs parallel to the sea.
