Fantastic little villa in South Goa
We stayed one week in August at River View Villa. What a pleasant, relaxing home to be in during late monsoon season. The view of the river was amazing and constantly changing with the different light of the day and changing tides. It definitely felt like home away from home.
We received a message from Shefali upon arrival at the airport to let us know our driver would be waiting for us and provided his phone number. Shefali was waiting for us when we arrived at the villa to show us around.
The housekeeper, Nafisa, and her husband, Ashraf, totally spoiled us. Waking up every day to the perfect cup of coffee or masala chai was such a treat.. Nafisa is an excellent cook, her breakfasts were delicious and filling and her dinners rival the best restaurant. We requested paratha for breakfast one morning and even though she had never made them before, Nafisa turned out some of the best I have ever had. She took such great care of us during our stay and we will miss her very much.
Life was very pleasant at River View Villa. We certainly plan to return, hopefully in the very near future. Thank you!
Peaceful and Tranquil
Hospitality par excellence. We were very well looked after.
Beautifully appointed and seamless check in, with every detail in place. Best was the rooms were beautifully cool when we arrived after our car drive. Nafisa the house keepers killer prawn curry.
Magnificent view and we spent most of our time watching the tides change in the river in the comfort of the gazebo.Tranquil, peaceful and a perfect haven.
Thankyou Chim, we'll be back again and again.
Thank you for your wonderful review. It was an absolute pleasure to have you here and I look forward to you coming back again !
Doesn't get better than this, paradise.
This is our 4th visit to Riverview. As always the house is spotless and the garden beautiful and are both looked after by Nafisa and Ashraf. They are a wonderful couple who can't do enough for you and are great company. Nafisa cooks breakfast and meals on request. Her butter chicken and masala omelettes are fabulous and better than any restaurant. There is a new bar around the corner called Varandas which is worth a visit for the views at sunset. The house is well situated and handy for taxis rickshaw etc. Patnam is 5 minutes away with great beach bars.
We spent most of our time in the garden watching the river go by with the fabulous wildlife and peace and quiet.
Cannot fault this holiday, house is superb, tastefully furnished, all mod cons and Nafisa and Ashraf make the stay perfect.
We enjoyed our stay so much! Nafisa and ashraf who look after the house make their guests feel very welcome, nafisa’s cooking is delicious, esp her Goan prawn curry! The views from the deck of the river are really beautiful and miraculously it’s the only house I’ve ever stayed in where you can see the sun rise and set... the sunset scene is incredibly theatrical, an hour of murmurations and birds coming home to roost... chim is a very helpful host, and responds immediately to any issues. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back!
Thank you for your lovely review! It was an absolute pleasure having you here and I hope the rest of your holiday goes fabulously! Look forward to seeing you again.
This house is perfect everytime . This is second time in the property and already looking to re book for March .. Chim is amazing and very helpful. And the maid is perfect! Every morning I would wake to delicious breakfast and fresh coffee. Highly suggest asking her too cook you an authentic Indian lunch, it’s incredible ...
If you want a get away, here is perfect , sit overlooking the river and relax... it’s perfect
Thank you for your glowing review. It was an absolute pleasure to have you here again and I’m delighted that you’re returning in March. Look forward to seeing you again.
A perfect place to laze and enjoy goa
We all loved the villa...the wonderful stay arrangements and the warm hospitality. To come to Goa and not want to get out of the house...is a rare thing but the villa is such that you just end up being a part of this dream world and don't wanna step out of it. Loved every bit of interior design and landscaping and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Nafisa the housekeeper is a delightful and very genuine person to chat with, excellent cook and took very good care of us.its a pleasure to meet such caring people.
Overall the stay was too good and i would recommend this villa to anyone who would want to relax in Goa.
Special interest holidays:
I can also arrange for private yoga classes in the garden with a serene view of the river. Besides this, the housekeeper can also teach you some Indian dishes as she is an excellent cook.
