LAZY COTTAGE ON THE RIVER BANKS is one of the two true Wooden Chalets situated on the banks of Goa's largest River "Mandovi". (Please check out WOODEN CHALET ON THE RIVER BANKS and SAINT PETER'S BAY for information on the other property). The house has its own wooden jetty and has docking facilities for a reasonably sized yacht.
Located 1 Km from the ancient city of Old Goa and 8 km to the City of Panjim. Old Goa was the first Capital City of Goa which was first shifted to Panjim due to the Plague centuries ago. The Old Goa Church was the first resting place of the body of St. Francis Xavier when brought to Goa from the Far East where it is preserved till today.
The house is on the river level with unlimited private parking in front. The main road is on a higher level about 4 metres above the river level. A building on the higher road level which stands between the road and the house isolates any traffic sound from the road which makes it a quiet and peaceful place to stay. The bus stand is situated on the road above.

Guest access
We give out the house to only one group at a time. There is no in house staff and the complete house is to your disposal only.

Other things to note
Guest almost always ask “how far is the beaches of the North – Baga, Calangute, Candolim” the answer is about 30 to 40 minutes’ drive not withstanding unusual traffic. We are not in the heart of the nightlife, but mostly all guest staying with us prefer to come to a peaceful home after a hectic night life. In many cases after experiencing a couple of trips to the beachs and nightlife many guest just prefer to relax at home with the best ever view and serenity you can get in Goa. The Casinos and boat cruises are just 15 minutes away in Panjim City and this has been one of the main attractions of most guest.

I am a retired Merchant Navy Master . I presently am restoring heritage houses belonging to me. I also love sailing and working with my boat. I love traveling and have been traveling to to Europe with my family every year and have many great friends all over Europe. Lisbon is my home base in Europe and I love Portugal. My idea of traveling is to stay with families and friends I know at the place of destination. For me it is important to live within the local community so I can experience and know the customs and way of life. I do not believe in organized tours. My properties are open to like minded people who will treat them like home.
