Many guests have described their house experience beautifully, so I will not insist on that. What you see in the photos is what you get and much more. We spent from May 12 till July 4, and we had a great chance not only to meet the owner (super supportive in all senses you may need) but Nafisa and Ashraf. We had great fun with them; they are the heart of the house. The smiles and the positive energy we got from both every morning is priceless. Nafisa taught me to cook Indian food, incredible dosa masala, green chutney, coconut chutney and much more. Moreover, she explained how to pronounce "chutney" correctly. Ashraf drove me to the local market to buy vegetables and bargain the prices for us, so we were not charged international prices, but local. We were travelling on his scooter an amazingly positive experience to feel local. Here is the "tip" you do not rent a house only, you rent the soul and heart of India, so hurry up don't miss it!!!!! because it is not available everywhere.

This was a very nice house on the coast of the Talpona river with beautiful garden. 1) Location was very good – 7 minutes of walk to Rajbag beach. The first hundreds of meters you pass the typical village street with rikshaws, cows, dogs etc. but then you turn through the golf course into a beautiful and well maintained garden of Lalit hotel. The Rajbag beach was pretty empty (especially its Northern part) and there were enough sunbeds in the shade for everyone. Sunbeds were free but you were expected to buy some fruits or fresh juice which was pure pleasure. During low tide you could walk to the Patnem beach with lots of restaurants and then further to very lively Palolem beach. It was not possible to return at night along the beach because of high tide but the ride with rickshaw took about 10 minutes and 100 Rp. 2) The villa itself was very nice and clean – it had living room, master bedroom with wonderful river view directly from the bed and smaller bedroom. The bathroom was decent and kitchen had all the basics. 3) One highlight of this villa was Nafisa who came every morning and made us an amazing breakfast. She was able to make also ordinary European breakfast but, being in India, we preferred local tastes. I was not sure about children, but even they were interested in new experiences and they liked everything that Nafisa prepared. She made different things every morning (pohaa, aluparata, etc.) and was willing to explain us how to cook and gave advise about spices. The house was cleaned daily, garden maintained by Nafisa’s husband and they also took care of laundry – no worries at all. 4) Another pearl was the river side gazebo in the garden where we could watch the sunset, read and see the fishermen coming and going – this became our favorite place. Villa had wifi and the owner arranged pickup from the airport and gave the driver’s contact for excursions and tours. So we were very well taken care of. In one word – this was a paradise. Thank you!

We stayed here for a 4 day weekend while friends were camped up inside the larger and much more expensive LaLit, but the Riverview was a much better deal. You feel as if you are home, with a living room, 2 bedrooms, nice garden and a wonderful platform upon which you can dine with family, do yoga, or just meditate. Highly recommended! Comes with housekeeper and cook, and a short walk to the LaLit beach.

Our family - me, my wife and our twin 18 year old kids - spent 3 days at Riverview Villa to welcome our kids into adulthood on their 18th birthday. The aim was to give them an unique once in a lifetime experience that they would remember throughout their lives. Riverview Villa provided them all that and MORE. We have stayed in many places in Goa (it is the kids favorite holiday getaway) and many hotels across India and Singapore, but this was their best holiday experience, bar none!! It's also interesting to note that this is one of the few places in Goa on tripadvisor that has ZERO 1 star, 2 star or even 3 star reviews! Some highlights: 1. Fantastic Villa - 2 double bedrooms, fully stocked, patio, right by the river, green, peaceful. Like a hobbit home from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. 2. Fantastic food - breakfast part of the package (pancakes are a MUST try), lunch and dinner either cooked by Nafisa (cook, helper and all in one support staff available from 9 am to 1 pm) or at places recommended by Shefali (owner) 3. Fantastic gazebo - right over the river LITERALLY!. Shefali had very considerately put it up for us early, to enhance the kid's experience , even though it was raining! We can't thank her enough for that act of kindness. My wife and I spent ALL our waking moments here during the 48 hours of our stay, other than dinner. Including sleeping early mornings and afternoons. I can only repeat what another Tripadvisor member has said about it - 'But oh that Gazebo'. Some caveats 1. It's not a 5 star hotel. So if you are looking for bars, disco, lawns, golf and all the activities and services associated, this is not for you. 2. There will always be minor inconveniences and irritations. So if you are a demanding, perfectionist expecting to be waited on hand and foot, then this is not for you. But if you are somebody, or a family, who is looking for bonding and joy and peace and quiet and being close to nature, then you will find all of that at Riverview Villa. Dr Balaji

A cheerful villa right by the river, Riverview Villa is ideal for a relaxing Goa holiday. Shefali, the owner is warm and generous, having fully stocked the kitchen and home to ensure a comfortable stay. The villa has a great view and all the amenities available. Nafisa, the cook and housekeeper is friendly and cooks a delicious breakfast (particularly recommend the aloo parathas!) Located at a 20-minute (Rs. 150 in offseason) rickshaw ride away from Palolem Beach, and 2 hours from the airport. Highly recommend following Shefali's restaurant and beach recommendations.
