The space

WOODEN CHALET ON THE RIVER BANKS is one of the three beautiful Heritage riverside properties (please check out LAZY COTTAGE ON THE RIVER BANKS and SAINT PETER'S BAY) true Wooden Chalets situated on the banks of one of Goa's largest River.
The house 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 Town Center (or Patto as it is known in Goa), where 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. All buses end their journey at the Panjim Main bus stand from where you can get all sorts of transports and car and two wheeler hire. 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 NON-PROFIT convenience store where we provide mostly everything you would need from cooking ingredients to variety of beverages, milk etc. etc. It is really convenient and thus the name “CONVENIENCE STORE”. All items at cost price plus 5% to cover losses etc.
We have a SAFE in the convenience store where you can lock up your valuables.
The house Lady Kalpana will come every morning to clean up. She is also an excellent cook as recommended by previous guest. It is important to note that any cooking is totally between the guest and Kalpana and is dependent on her availability as she has her own family. Her nominal charges for the group is Rs. 300 for cooking breakfast and Rs. 500 per other meal. This is for labour charge only and you will have to discuss with her about getting the material.
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, 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 at cost price plus 5% is provided so you can enjoy a barbecue on the stone patio. There is good fishing scope however ardent fisherman should bring their own equipment.
We provide the best quality bed linen and bath towels. Night sheets are provided as night cover as it is not too cold. We provide LAUNDERED blankets sealed for your protection at extra charge of Rs. 20 each to cover laundry charges. Cleanliness is our motto.
In the hall there is a full-fledged computer station. There is free unlimited Broad Band Internet and Wi-Fi. We have BSNL (Govt.) connection and we pay monthly for unlimited broadband. Generally, the Broadband has been very satisfactory but we however state that the connection is dependent on BSNL and we have no control on the quality or any breakdowns. We can assure you that we will make all efforts to ensure that in case of breakdown we pursue BSNL to attended earliest.
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. We however insist that the guest respect the residential locality and keep the music level to low level.
We have taken great pains to ensure that our guest have the best of comforts and feel at home.

Guest access

We give out the house to only one group at a time. There is no in house staff and the complete house is to your disposal only.

Interaction with guests

We are on the mobile connection in case you need any help or advice or other requirements.

Other things to note

Guest almost always ask “how far is the beaches of the North – Baga, Calangute, Candolim” the answer is about 30 minutes’ drive not withstanding unusual traffic. We are not in the heart of the nightlife, but mostly all guest staying with us prefer to come to a peaceful home after a hectic night life. In many cases after experiencing a couple of trips to the beaches and nightlife many guest just prefer to relax at home with the best ever view and serenity you can get in Goa. The Casinos and boat cruises are just 10 minutes away in Panjim City and this has been one of the main attractions of most guest.

It's was an awesome experience for us , excellent view and Capt Leo had taken minute care to make our stay comfortable . They have a store where all necessary kitchen groceries are available, which one can use and pay as per the rate chart available in the kitchen. Perfect place for family getaway in Goa . Care taker Kalpana is also very warm and can do cooking for you at additional cost .

A great location on the riverbank with a fantastic view of the river. Capt Leo has thought of every possible comfort - from purified drinking water on tap to instant boiling hot water so you don't need to boil the kettle for tea and coffee. Very well stocked with essentials like milk, butter, tea and coffee and even beer, soft drinks and spirits - all on a reimburse or replace basis. Kalpana, the friendly cleaning lady came daily and Irene changed the linen every 4 days. This is one of the best airbnb places we've ever stayed at. Capt Leo is a very responsive host and very considerate. When my handbag with the house keys inside was stolen outside a Panjim movie hall, he was extremely sympathetic and had to be practically forced to accept payment towards having new keys made. The Lobos are a charming family whom it's a pleasure to meet.

I am a retired Merchant Navy Master . I presently am restoring heritage houses belonging to me. I also love sailing and working with my boat. I love traveling and have been traveling to to Europe with my family every year and have many great friends all over Europe. Lisbon is my home base in Europe and I love Portugal. My idea of traveling is to stay with families and friends I know at the place of destination. For me it is important to live within the local community so I can experience and know the customs and way of life. I do not believe in organized tours. My properties are open to like minded people who will treat them like home.
