“Heaven in Goa”
Reviewed November 1, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This place makes you work hard a little bit to get there from anywhere in Goa. But once you're there, you wouldn't want to leave the villa! The place is located in the midst of amazing greenery and has a private pool. There a lot of different floats available to enjoy in the pool and there is also the option of having a pool-side barbecue.
The caretaker Bishnu deserves a special mention as he is absolutely diligent and makes sure that you have lazy, comfortable vacation by helping with food/drinks anytime. Do make to savour his awesome masala omelette and listen to him play some soulful songs along with this guitar.
The owner Charles and his father were also really helpful for arranging food/drinks for us on the villa itself.
All-in-all, we (a group of 11 friends) had some really fun time at the villa and would love to visit again!

Dear Vrajesh,
Many thanks for your review and excellent score. Am glad you all had a wonderful time and enjoyed your stay at Casa Bottu and the bachelor party (or should I say parties)!!
Thanks for the mention of Bishnu and his hard work - yes he sees to it all guests are well taken care off. I understand you'll had some difficulty in finding the place and to overcome this I now send Bishnu to collect guests from the ferry point. Also GPS co-ordinates get provided to guests. To conclude, again, thanks for your review and look forward to welcoming you and your friends again in the future at CASA BOTTU.
Best regards

“Perfect example of Goa's laid-back lifestyle”
Reviewed October 29, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Great villa to stay. beautiful interiors with clean rooms & washrooms. Well maintained and almost all basic amenities present to optimum levels. We had one hell of a time here. Great support by the caretaker and I am always gonna remember his Godmaxx taste-bud smacking omelettes. Perfect pool size and depth to have fun with safety even under the influence of booze. The lush green surroundings and the serenity around were a big big plus.

A perfect getaway for friends, couples and families alike.

“CASA BOTUU--A Beautiful Villa”
Reviewed October 29, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

CASA BOTUU-A Beautiful Villa I must say.

Reaching this place was a mystery as we reached Goa late evening driving through quiet and serene jungle roads, but Bishnu the caretaker was always over the phone to guide us through till we reached the place.

The Very first sight of the villa takes you to back to the great Portuguese styled Goa, Bright colors, ambient lighting, Classy Wood interiors and a huge living room with a designated book shelf(didn’t get time to read though) and a Rocking chair and a huge wooden Dining table. All the Rooms were lavishly designed and Beds were clean with fresh Bedding.
I must note that the Bathrooms were designed in line to the interiors of the place and were Huge!
The Swimming pool was our meeting point and was open for 24 hours(You generally do not get this option in hotels/resorts).It was surrounded by well-maintained trees which acted as a canopy. The Care taker Bishnu was a very helpful guy who was always happy to help and enthusiastic too(He actually took part in our karaoke activity and played guitar well too)

Overall it was one of the best places i have stayed in Goa and would definitely suggest it to people looking out for a serene and quiet outing/trip far away from the maddening crowds of North Goa.

“Great for a 'private' holiday in Goa with friends”
Reviewed October 26, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We went there for a bachelor's party ( a close friend of mine and I were the guys getting married). We were a group of close to 12.

The Villa is a located in Charao Island, which is not that difficult to reach to. A taxi from Panjim will drop you to the doorstep of this place ( provided you have some GPS and Internet). There is a pool in the Villa which was great fun for us. The rooms are large with open bathrooms ( No, we didn't leverage this). The caretaker is fun and young and makes great homely food. Don't miss his omlette. He lit up a barbeque for the two nights we were there and for folks who we eat Non-Veg, his chicken was supposed to be mind-blowing. The veg Bbq was nice as well.

Would definitely recommend this to a group of friends who want a private time off within themselves.

“Beautiful hideout away from the crowds”
Reviewed September 24, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

This is a beautiful villa. Offers the privacy you get told when you book. Ideal for those who want to get away from the busy crowds but still not out of reach as you can still take the ferry and go to the mainland anytime. We spent most of our days at the villa which has its private pool and privacy that goes without saying. Owner Charles manages all things very well and gave us all facts before we arrived. Bishnu handles all the activities on site perfectly and can organise a few things like food, etc. if you advise him in advance before your arrival which is what we did. We decided to have a BBQ one evening and all things were well done. Beautiful candle light dinner under the stars & BBQ along the pool although we were luck it did not rain that night. The villa offers a small mini library that can keep you busy when you laze near the pool and also numerous games that can keep you occupied when you just want to spend time with your drink in hand and your mates. Its very important you have your own means of conveyance like bikes or a car as public transport is not very common here. Also before to head to Chorao its important you do most of your shopping at Panjim like alcohol and drinks and snacks as advised by Charles. Although we were not into photography we saw numerous kinds of birds all along our stay as this island is home to the Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary. Even though we had our apprehensions before to go to this place as we were not sure as it was on an island - we were lucky to find this spot in a little paradise in a true goan village setting.
