Description

WOODEN CHALET ON THE RIVER BANKS is one of the two beautiful riverside properties (please check out LAZY RIVER COTTAGE) true Wooden Chalets situated on the banks of Goa's largest River, "Mandovi" in the Heritage Zone of Ribandar town. Built in 1730 it underwent major restoration works completed in 2012. It is located on the outskirt of the City of Panjim, and within the Corporation of the city of Panjim. It is history that centuries ago the first Capital City of Old Goa was first shifted to Ribandar due to the Plague. It was later shifted to the present main city of Panjim. The Ribandar Church nearby was the first resting place of the body of St. Francis Xavier when brought to Goa from the Far East. His body was then shifted to Old Goa where it is preserved till today.

Casinha Raibandar is centrally located, just 10 minutes to the Panjim Central Bus Stand which is equidistant from North and South Goa. Just a 5 minutes' walk from the house to the Ribandar Center (or Patto as it is known in Goa), you will find available dry provisions, fresh vegetables, meats and fish besides a chemist and a fast food shop. The bus stand is also situated here. The road going Eastwards will take you to the ancient Portuguese Capital city of Goa known as Old Goa which is just 6 Km away. Goa was the only overseas State of Portugal known as "Estado da India" and most of the history lies in this city of Old Goa. This is a location having world famous historical sites and numerous Cathedrals including the Cathedral of Bom Jesu where the body of St. Francis Xavier is preserved and visible to date.

Car and bike rental facilities are also available for which information will be provided.

The Chalet is fitted with all amenities one can think of and what you would normally like to have in your home. Some of the amenities are two fully equipped kitchens, dishwasher, microwave ovens, baking oven,, U.V. filter, hot and cold water fountain, clothes washing machine and dryer etc. etc. Besides, the house is fitted with a hydro pneumatic water pressure system giving full pressure on all the water outlets and showers.

There is an in-house convenience store where we provide mostly everything you would need from cooking ingredients to variety of beverages, pre-prepared foods, milk etc. etc. It is really convenient and thus the name “CONVENIENCE STORE”.

There is a restaurant that delivers food to order to the house as on date. The menu is kept in the house and you have to order on the phone.

The house is divided into three levels and has four large bedrooms, each with toilets attached. The main Hall, Kitchen, dining and sitting areas is on the road level. There is a large garage which can accommodate a large vehicle plus 2 or 3 two wheelers. Two bedrooms are located on the first floor above the road level and two bedrooms are located 3 meters below the road level right on the river edge.

The house is designed so that the view of the river, the Salem Ali Bird Sanctuary and adjacent islands are prominent from every location in the house. The upper bedrooms have a spacious wooden deck with deck chairs to relax on with full view of the river. The lower bedrooms open onto a paved patio which is on the river edge. It has docking facilities for a reasonably sized yacht.

The upper bedrooms have its own kitchenette fully equipped including a fridge. There is also an ironing board on this deck. The lower bedrooms have fridges in each bedroom. Barbecue equipment including coal is provided so you can enjoy a barbecue on the stone patio. Fishing equipment is also available for the ardent fisherman.

We provide the best quality bed linen and bath towels. Cleanliness is our motto.

In the hall there is a fully fledged computer station including printer and scanner. There is free unlimited Broad Band Internet and Wi-Fi is accessible from all the bedrooms and at all locations in the house. A music station attached to the computer system allows you to play music from the internet, pen drive or memory card or just connect to your mobile or other portable equipment. Dish T V is installed with all available channels on Tata Sky. There is also Telephone (incoming only) with cordless stations at each floor level.

We have taken great pains to ensure that our guest have the best of comforts and feel at home.
