“A hidden jewel”

We were a group of 5 girls heading to Goa for a small celebration. After browsing through a number of accommodation options, we zeroed in on the this pretty wooden chalet. And that was the smartest thing to do!
You couldn't ask for a better location. The property sits right on the banks of the river and has a fantastic front patio and upper deck. The interiors are tastefully done keeping in mind the basic needs of everyday life. There is a small area that stocks up all basic essentials, like packed food, shampoos etc. Its like having an indoor store all of your own. Gosh this place is better equipped than even your homes!
One thing to note is that there are villas adjoining this property. So you might want to watch your decibel levels while partying out on the patio, in case the neighbors are present. (Privacy is NOT an issue because of the layout) We had an indoor party though and faced no problem.
The property itself is very huge, with 5 double beds in 4 rooms. It should have no trouble housing at least 10. Tip: Run and capture the upper floor bedrooms 1 and 2 before your friends do! The view is to die for.
On the flip side, finding the place is not the easiest thing to do. Blame it on Tripadvisor! The directions shown are incorrect. The property is close to Karmali station and you should have no trouble reaching it if you have the right directions. So make sure you get in touch with the owner before heading out.
And lastly, the owner, Captain Lobo is the most gracious host you can imagine. He will ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible.
If you are thinking of staying here, just go for it! This place is as good as it gets!

I must have gone to goa a number of times but never did I know that there were these amazing villas located on the banks of the Mandovi river! Lazy River cottage is one such place... Its a amazingggggg villa with a gorgeous view of the lake and one of the best villas I have stayed in till date... The villa is stocked with goods that you wouldn't even find in a regular home which makes your stay all the more comfortable... you can use all of them at MRP+5% which is a great deal! The deck is wonderful enough to host a party of your own and the villa is cosy enough to laze all day around... The bedrooms are super comfortable and the caretaker takes care that everything is clean! Capt.Leo is an extremely hospitable host..He even allowed us to check out his other property which is going to be our next stay! Lovely lovely experience!

We were a group of 7 friends travelling to Goa to celebrate New Year. So we needed a big place to ourselves. and Lazy River Cottage was exactly what we wanted. The Owner, Capt. Lobo was courteous, gave exact directions to the place, made sure the place was cleaned, ensured that enough supplies were there for the group. we had requested for Barbeque equipment which was duly provided at the cottage.
Capt. Lobo also gave some very helpful contacts for bikes..taxis..etc, making our stay even more comfortable.
