Goa cottage description

'Goldfinch' 4 bedroom Cottage is a fascinating home, surrounded by neat, well maintained landscaping. This spacious property is furnished to a high standard throughout. The terrace offers breathtaking views of the vast landscapes and the breezy paddy fields.

This is a distant home, 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.


Goldfinch Cottage: Goldfinch is a 4 bedroom cottage. The ground floor consists of the living room which opens into a covered terrace. The dining area is closer to a large kitchen equipped with refrigerator, 4 burner cooking hob, micro oven, toaster, kettle, all cooking utensils and crockery. Adjacent to the living room is the air-conditioned en-suite bedroom having double bed with elegant wrought iron furniture, opening into a large, extravagant terrace. An additional bathroom with a bath and an enclosed utility room are on either side of the stairway that leads to the upper level.

The stairway opens into a large family room with TV and DVD having comfortable seating providing a frontal view of the complex from the open terrace attached to it. On this floor, there are three air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms with double beds, 2 of which have large balconies and the third leads out into an open terrace, all offering magnificent, serene views of the country side. The bathrooms have enclosed shower cabins

Chorao Island: Chorao is one of the most quaint, unspoilt and beautiful island of Goa. It is very scenic and ideal for people seeking more of a laid back environment, people who are private, well traveled and who have affinity for rural charm. The island has a rich habitat for wetland birds and plants amid the rolling hills and habours the famous Dr. Salim Ali's Bird Sanctuary. This gorgeous island is a perfect locate for painting and writing. There is a slow space here. There are no traffic lights. People wave out to each other and if you still wish to experience humanity just cross the short ferry. The island has a population of twenty thousand. You will find taxis, shops, post office and fresh sea food. There are ferries at two points and run every 20 minutes from 6 am to 12 midnight. During the other times and specially if one is in a hurry or one has to go to the airport or the mainland, one can hire a ferry as a special crossing for a nominal sum of Rs.60/-.
