This amazing sea view apartment is adjacent to its almost identical sister apartment. It is a generous size and is furnished with tropical style cane furniture throughout for that real holiday feel.

The bedroom has the luxury of both a ceiling fan and air conditioning so that you can get that perfect night's sleep. The beds have comfy mattresses and pillows. Attached bathroom boasts a large wet room style hot shower. Outside you can sit on the veranda sipping a cool drink and playing one of the games from the apartment. Then watch the sun go down and get ready for a great Goan evening ahead.

About the property

Silva Shell

Soak in the sun on Goan golden sands: Book any of the 3 beautiful apartments at Silva Shell, Candolim. Simply click on the tabs near the top of this advert to see further information for each apartment. The apartments are elegant; 2 have a sea view and 1 has a more secluded green view. The apartment block is unique because of its extremely close proximity to Candolim beach. You can see it clearly from the sea view apartments – the ground floor 1 bedroom apartment and the 2 bedroom 1st floor apartment. It’s a really rare gem because it is hard to find such properties with this kind of stunning sea view. You can also take in the lush greenery and sprawling field that separates the apartments from the beach. There are mature whispering palm trees in abundance and the apartments are situated on a little lane just off of the ever popular, main Candolim high street. It is a mere 5 minutes walk away. The surrounding area is green and lush and the apartments are just a 2 minute walk to the golden sands of Candolim beach. There are so many shops, restaurants, bars, salons, spas and entertainment on the high street. If you are interested in booking a stay at Silva Shell during the nationally famous music festivals at which the most renowned and acclaimed musicians and dance artists perform, please know that there may be tremendous noise, loud music, traffic jams, massive crowds between December 15 and January 5. These festivals occur at at the latter part of December but preparations begin around mid December. Unfortunately, we do not have any control over these events. These events are reminiscent of Woodstock. You can also shop until your drop in the array of leather goods shops, trinket and souvenir shops, fashion boutiques, fabulous jewellers and much, much more. On the golden stretch of Candolim beach you will find so many great beach shacks to lounge at and sample the local beers and food - take your pick. They are a much needed, shady respite from the gloriously warm Goan sunshine. Outside each shack there are sun beds lined up to sun yourself from top to toes whilst enjoying waiter service and pampering delights such as massages and manicures. These shacks are open in the evening too. So, you can choose to spend your evenings on the buzzing high street or sink your toes into the cool evening sand whilst enjoying a cocktail or two. Each apartment has good sized double bedrooms. The beds are comfy and make for a great night's sleep. Each bedroom has good wardrobe space also. So, bring as much holiday wear as you like. Bring on the glamour! The living areas have elegant day beds to relax on and take in the views. The kitchens are fully equipped so that you can opt to rustle up some home cooking if the fancy takes you. There are some real handy amenities such as a washing machine in the 2 bedroom apartment, coffee makers and fridge freezers so that you never have to think about having a warm wine or beer. These apartments really are special and ready for your truly brilliant Goan experience. Simply book up and start counting down the days to fun in the sun, relaxation and a home from.

About Lisa Norton

I am Goan born and bred and want you the holiday maker to experience the many great, beautiful and fascinating things that I have experienced living and growing up in Goa in the past. So, mi casa su casa. Come and enjoy it at Candolim beach as much as I have.

Why Lisa Norton chose Goa

These 3 lovely apartments are in a block together, so they are perfect for a family get together or a group of friends on a fun holiday. They were built around 3 years ago on family land which is green and very pretty. This apartment is modern with great amenities and has a fresh feel.

What makes this apartment unique

Take in the unique holiday benefits. These apartments are in a very special location. It has:cafes, bars, restaurants and entertainment are all within close proximity - walking distance and the golden sandy, sun kissed Candolim beach is just 2 minutes walk away. You can walk from there to the adjoining Calangute and Baga beaches. This really is a great location and in my opinion very hard to beat. If there is up to 10 of you that all like to holiday together then you have the benefit of 3 apartments all in the same family block. Absolutely ideal.

Lovely clean and tidy apartment near the beach.

Had great welcome from Lil and Pete the managers. Only one complaint about the apartment we had was that no sitting area outside. But will definitely be back, hopefully to the upstairs one with the sea view. Great stay overall.

Very Happy.

  • 5 of 5

Me my partner and a friend came to Goa for four weeks and before we flew looked everywhere for a decent, good value apartment and luckily we came across Silva Shell Apartments. When we landed we were greeted by our taxi driver who was organised by Lill and her husband (Their English) which also were just a phone call away for the whole holiday if we needed anything which was nice so we had nothing to worry about. When we arrived at the apartments we were happy to learn we had the top apartment which is nice and big with two large bedrooms, large kitchen, bathroom and living area and to top it off we had a large balcony which has lovely views over to the beach with palm trees and lots of golden sand.

The apartment also has everything you could need for

self catering e.g washing machine, fridge, oven, microwave, kettle and also have a filtered water machine which is great as you can not drink from the taps. The apartment was cleaned at least twice a week including sheets and towels (a very good job done by Sara).

If you don't fancy cooking yourself you have no need to worry as a 2 minuet walk will take you to the main road which has loads of restaurants and bars with every world cuisine you could wish for. We didn't have one meal we were not happy with all the food is freshly cooked and so cheap!

Very happy with everything about the Apartment and Goa.

Will be back and will defiantly be staying at the Silva Shell! #

Bottom apartment stay

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in the bottom sea view 1 bedroom. What a great place for the price and location. The beach was a five minute walk or less. The bedrooms AC kept you nice and cool. It was very close to all the restaurants. The property had enough space to park your car, bike, or both. My favorite thing about the apartment were the people and animals that lived around it. The housekeeper was so sweet. She offered to cook us home made meals and do our laundry. The highlight of my trip was being greeted by the neighbors dog each night after coming back from being out. I love animals and the dog was the sweetest gentle creature. I would sit out on the porch at night listening to wind against the palm trees as my new friend would sit by my side.

The apartment upstairs is really beautiful. I recommend that apartment for anyone with more than 1 person. The kitchen was just calling my name to cook in. The bathroom was nice and modern. The bedrooms were all good sizes. The only down fall was i was renting the apartment in May and it did not have AC. I would love to rent this rental in January. It is so nice and modern.

You won't be disappointed with either apartment you rent. The price is unbeatable for the location.

Location, Value,

  • 5 of 5

The sea view apartment at Silva Shell was a lucky find. The listing description was on point. The near proximity of the gorgeous Candolim beach was a treat. This cozy, clean, comfortable, modern apartment had everything to make our stay in Goa enjoyable and memorable. We felt safe and cared for by the caretaker. The property manager Lilly was helpful, resourceful and responsive from the moment we contacted her for reservations to the end of our week's stay.

I will definately return to Silva Shell the next time I visit Goa.

These 3 lovely apartments are all in one block. They are situated just a 2 minute walk away from the famous Candolim beach which joins Calangute beach then Baga beach. An abundance of quality restaurants and shops just minutes away.10 minutes drive away is the Saturday night market which has great music, fabulous bargain shopping, excellent food and live entertainment which goes on until late. A little further up the road is the world famous Wednesday Anjuna flea market with thousands of stalls, restaurants and beach bars. Further north are the idyllic, relaxing beaches of Morjim, Mandrem, Aswem and Arambol. You can take advantage of overnight stays at Palolem (paradise beach - stunningly beautiful), day trips to the spice plantation, the elephant sanctuary and waterfalls. Or you could rent a scooter and explore the stunning scenery, coastline and towns for yourself which include white washed churches and colourful temples. In Baga there is plenty of nightlife if you want it or you can just relax in one of the many chilled beach bars right on your door step after a superb meal on the Candolim high street which is just a walk away. Fort Aguada is only a 10 minute ride away where you can soak up the Portuguese history and go back in time. You certainly won't get bored on your Goan holiday.
