A few weeks back we, a family of four, stayed at the Riverview Villa. The villa is located away from the crowded beaches with a heavenly view of the Talpona river. It is 'put together' for a vacation without a hitch. The homely rooms and the bath were clean, well appointed with ample amenities and a lot of care. The spaces inside and outside on the banks of the river are designed to unwind. The gazebo over the river was perfect for a quiet evening looking at the fishermen with their lights against a dusk sky.
Nafisa, the cook and the caretaker, made a particularly fabulous breakfast of Poha (flattened rice) and Goan sausages in a curry with great coffee. She made sure that we were comfortable right through our stay. The kitchen is well equipped with necessary utensils, fruits, snacks and things that you will need (yet you never know) like a corkscrew, assorted glassware, a french press etc.
One of the mornings we went on a boat ride upriver which was organized by the host on request. Overall Chim, the host and Nafisa, the caretaker were so keen on us having a great time with the least intrusion. And we did.More
