About Lisa Norton (Lil)

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 (Lil) chose Goa

These 3 lovely apartments are in a block together, so they are perfect for a family get together or couples. They were built around 8 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.

Ottima Posizione

  • 4 of 5

La posizione è ottima, vicino al mare e vicino al centro senza i disagi dei rumori della strada principale. Bello l'appartamento, solo scarseggia in piatti bicchieri, senza scolapasta, grattugia e cavatappi che mi sono acquistato a mie spese. Per il resto tutto bene, anche grazie alla ragazza che due volte a settimana fa' le pulizie e cambia lenzuoli ecc.., ragazza che è stata gentilissima e disponibile per ogni evenienza. Piero

Owner's Response: Caro Piero, Mi chiamo Crescentia Coutinho, propietaria di Silva Shell in Goa. La ringrazio d’aver scritto questa recensione positiva del tuo soggiorno a Silva Shell. Silva Shell è un posto speciale perché è la mia casa ancestrale. Mia madre, Maria D’Silva, nacque in una baracca in questp terrotorio. Morì nel 2001 all’età di 93 anni. Era il suo sogno che io costruissi questa casa e la facessi in una pensione così la gente del mondo potesse venire per conoscere il nostro modo di vivere, la nostra ricca cultura, cibo, musica, bellezze naturali e meravigliose spiagge di Goa. Voleva che la sua casa fosse modesta, comoda, pulita, sicura, e conveniente. Lei era una persona molto caritatevole, ospitale ed accogliente. Io ho insegnato a Bassera, la giovane signora che prende cura degli ospiti, ad offrire la stessa sollecitudine e attenzione ai dettagli come avrebbe voluto mia madre. Ho preso nota degli arnesi di cucina che non c’erano in cucina e li farò disponibili il più presto possibile. Grazie per i Suoi commenti. Questi mi permettono a migliorare i servizi. Spero che Lei rinviasse Silva Shell ai tuoi amici e familiari e che ritorni presto. Distinti saluti, Cres English Translation Dear Piero, My name is Crescentia Coutinho, owner of Silva Shell in Goa. I very much appreciate you taking the time to write this positive review about your stay at Silva Shell. Silva Shell is a very special place. It is my ancestral home. My mother, Maria D’Silva, was born in a shack that stood on this land. She passed away in 2001 at the age of 93. It was her wish that I build this home and turn it into a guest house for people around the world who wanted to taste and experience the rich culture, food, music, natural beauty and the beautiful beaches in Goa. She wanted it to be modest, comfortable, clean, safe and affordable. My mother was extremely charitable, hospitable and warm. I have trained Bassera, the young lady who attends to the guests at Silva Shell, to offer the same attentiveness to detail and the care that mother would expect. I have taken note of the kitchen gadgets that you missed in the apartment and I will ensure that I have them available. Thank you for your feed-back as it helps me improve services. I hope you will refer Silva Shell to your friends and family and hope you return to Silva Shell someday. Regards, Cres

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 hundreds 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. 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 or a beach shack 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.
