I had an excellent time staying here over the Christmas holidays. The home and patio along the river are stunning - right out of the pages of Architectural Digest. So peaceful and comfortable. Rinoo made us feel very comfortable at all times and shared lots of local information with us. His staff were also super helpful and eager to assist... More

The paradise for us! After travelling through Goa, exhausted and stressed, we found this beautyfull, beautyfull Place!! The rooms are very unique, charming, all the rooms overviewing hughe palms or the River .... You only hear: silence, the birds and the very nearby sea, which is only a few meters from the Villa!, passing the private path of the house.... More

The Villa offers more than just accomodation and food. It is the unique atmosphere of beauty and harmony, the carefully chosen decoration and colours all around, the garden, etc. that make this place an ideal location to recharging and finding inner peace. I can full-heartedly recommend this place to those who like beauty and harmony.

We have been in Villa Rivercat the last three years. As Rinoo, the owner says, "this is not a hotel, it is a home, so feel welcome". That we do, which is why we are going back again this year for a fourth time!

a great place to stay feels like a safe haven in India with a great atmosphere. The house is just beside a beautiful long beach go and soak up the sunshine then watch the sunset! The fruit salads at breakfast are great and you have a collection of puppies and kittens to play with. Lots of places nearby for yoga... More

Stayed here over the Christmas period, and all the staff were lovely and really welcoming. The building itself is great and all the rooms full of lovely antiques which really make you feel like you're in a home, not just a guesthouse. Also a great location 30 seconds from the beach. However, I think considering we had a shared bathroom... More

I stayed at the beautiful Villa Rivercat for four perfect weeks at the beginning of October 2013. As a single female traveller on my first trip to India I was relived after a long flight to be greeted with masala chai and Rinoo... the kindest, most warm-hearted, wonderfully funny and generous host (soon to be friend). The house itself it... More
