Goa cottage description
'Goldfinch' 4 bedroom Cottage; 'Sandpiper' one bedroom Garden Villa and 'Honeyguides' two bedroom apartment are fascinating homes, surrounded by neat, well maintained landscaping. These spacious properties are furnished to a high standard throughout. The terraces and balconies offers breathtaking views of the vast landscapes and the breezy paddy fields.
They are distant homes, far from it all and allows one to choose ones' own pleasures and space. Once you enter the complex you experience it to be a quiet paradise where tranquility reigns.
It is a perfect place to do everything... do nothing ... do anything you like.... and allow your whim to take precedence over everything else and when desire dictates, you may get out of the island by a short ferry crossing and visit the popular beaches and tourist areas and return home to serenity.
Since the island of Chorao is a bird sanctuary, all properties in the resort complex are named after birds.

Perfect for exploring Goa
Perfect for exploring Goa
We rented this house over the Christmas holidays for an extended stay with our children. It was magical. The house itself is large and very comfortably furnished. It is cleaned every day, and there was a limitless supply of fresh towels. It was also arranged that a lovely lady cooked for us every day. Oh, and fresh bread was delivered every morning! The grounds are beautiful, the highlight being an enormous, well-maintained pool. Our children spent hours there every day. Everything was always clean and tidy, as well as very quiet. The owner, Subhash, took care of all our needs and always went above and beyond the call of duty. The location is on an inlet, you need to take a short ferry ride to get there. It means that you are surrounded by bucolic countryside, with just a few very friendly locals around. It is possible to rent a car and driver to take you to the beach, shopping or sightseeing. We enjoyed our holidays so much that we have already been back again and are planning our next visit. We have also recommended the house to some friends and they were just as enthusiastic about the place. Absolutely perfect location for a trip to Goa. (Note that at the same location it is also possible to rent 1- and 2-bedroom townhouses.)
