Located 1 Km from the ancient city of Old Goa and 8 km to the City of Panjim. Old Goa was the first Capital City of Goa which was first shifted to Panjim due to the Plague centuries ago. The Old Goa Church was the first resting place of the body of St. Francis Xavier when brought to Goa from the Far East where it is preserved till today. The house is on the river level with unlimited private parking in front. The main road is on a higher level about 4 metres above the river level. A building on the higher road level which stands between the road and the house isolates any traffic sound from the road which makes it a quiet and peaceful place to stay. The bus stand is situated on the road above. LAZY RIVER COTTAGE is located, just 15 minutes by road to the Panjim Central Bus Terminus which terminus is equidistant from North and South Goa. The house is designed so that the view of the river, and adjacent islands are prominent from every location in the house. The lower bedrooms open onto a paved patio which is on the river edge and has its own wooden jetty projecting into the river. It has docking facilities for a reasonably sized yacht. 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. More

Getting around
A car is needed for this place like I would say for most places in Goa as the bus services will waste your holiday time. We have a contact person who arranges all sorts of vehicles for the guest.
