“Dream House with a perfect Host...Must Experience”
Reviewed 5 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

The moment I saw it on the web during my search for a stay in Goa, I was in love with this place. I convinced my family and close friends, though they were not so confident of having experience as mentioned in reviews. However, I booked this place for 4 nights. We were 2 families total 8 of us, and this perfectly fitted our requirement as it is 4 bedroom chalet. On the day of checkin me and my family took some time to reach the place, while my wife's sister and family were about to reach driving down from Pune. They took some to locate the place as from outside you may not recognize the place. The first call I received from them one locating this place was full of excitement, I could feel how elated they were to see this wooden chalet. Finally we too joined and WOW! what a place, what beautiful location...even pictures cannot define the experience. It is a dream house, one that everyone would like to own and that is why I think all guest take care of this property as their home.
Ground Floor: It has a garage where you can park your CAR/SUV and still have space for Bike too. Fully furnished ultra modern kitchen, a pay (on cost price) as you use grocery store for daily needs, a Mini Bar, Refrigerator filled with Beer, Coke, Juice etc..all at cost price, WIFI Free, Computer, Dishwasher, Washing Machine, Barbecue Grill Weber with charcoal(Yes), TV (though not used much) with Tata Sky, baby safe chair...all this on the Ground floor. There is lovely Dining table in the Kitchen area, also having Bar chairs facing the windows overlooking the river, we loved this place during morning Breakfast and night cocktail dinners with the extended family. On the other side of the Dinning area after the Stairs which lead to the upper floor and down the lower floor, is the main sitting lounge. This is a beautiful place to spend time with family, listen to music (yes they have a good sound system attached to the computer), read books and a extended lounge where kids can play too. Also there are two toilets in the Ground floor. The river view from the kitchen to the lounge is awesome. Airconditioning and Floor Fans are available too.
Lower Floor: It has two spacious bedrooms with independent bathrooms, one bathroom is having a full window overseeing the River. Both the bedrooms have Almirahs and a common mini refrigerator too. From the bedroom you have access to the beautiful dock at the backyard. This place awesome to sit in the morning or evening or for barbecue.
Upper Floor: It has two Huge Bedrooms with independent Bathrooms and a small utility Kitchen (quite spacious) along with Ironing board. There is a lovely space in front of bedrooms for a sitting lounge overseeing the river and they have provided relaxing chairs for your experience.
I must compliment Capt Leo for such a wonderful hospitality, we met him couple of times during our stay. He has taken care of the minutest of the details for ensuring customer delight. During our stay the nights were bit chilled out, Capt Leo, next day arranged the AC blankets..wow that is called service. The cleaning lady (forgot name) was also very helpful and cheerful. Overall a 10/10 and never to forget experience.Wish you all the best Capt Leo and team.
Tips: 1.) The place is very near to Panjim (10min drive), so hire a Car or Bike and plan your day to the beaches. Most north beaches are 10-20kM away and easy to access.
2) The food available from restaurant (forgot the name, you will find menu kept) is very good, must try.
3) Must try beaches : Agonda Beach in South (70kM drive), Mandrem, Ashvem beaches in North for peacful experience. For Nightlife Baga, Calangue, Candolim beaches in North

“Perfect Place!!”

My husband and I were planning to take our parents to Goa and we were looking for a peaceful place, but not very far from the usual attractions. For more Goa has never been much about the beaches, its always been about the serene Mandovi river that unknowingly becomes your companion.. holding your hands and taking you the the most beautiful places. What better place than Casinha Raibandar then, for someone like me. The place is spacious, clean and most importantly Mandovi is right behind the house. After a day full of activities - beaches and churches, it was so amazing to just sit the backyard, watching those boats go by. The house was well designed and maintained, very thoughtfully. All the essential supplies were there in the kitchen, and the store. The bedrooms and linens were clean. Capt. Leo was a great host. He visited us on the day we checked in. Explained all the necessary processes. It was quite a hassle-free experience. There is nothing I would change about this place. I would definitely visit this place again.

“By far the Best stay in Goa”
Reviewed 4 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Everything is so positive abt this place, for 7 adults and 2 children this place was very spacious and accommodating. Its literally a home away from home. Unlike other competitors, you can blindly go with the picture posted for CASINHA RAIBANDAR, we witnessed the beauty just the way its detailed in the pictures (meaning no photoshop work etc done for selling).
4 luxurious bedrooms, ample lighting and the scenic beauty you wake up to will make you come back or extend your stay. Its an absolute comfort and peaceful place. The kitchen is fully equipped with access to the store room for almost all ingredients. So you need not worry if you wish to cook a meal or a prepare a quick bite.
Capt. Leo is a wonderful person, hes got this place loaded with all you require and expects his guests to honestly pay for all thats used.
Overall a very warm and pleasant stay.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Our stay at the Casinha Raibandar was an amazing and relaxing experience. We spent the first 20 minutes just exploring and admiring every part of the place.
The house is clean, very well ventilated with plenty of sunlight. The attention to detail is meticulous.. from wine glasses and beer mugs to a fully equipped kitchen with oven, dishwasher, washing machine (and a mini kitchenette on the second floor!), from a big collection of all kinds of alcoholic spirits, mixers, a massive carton of beer, to all the basic cooking ingredients, eggs and gourmet bread, from mini refrigerators in every room to a computer with a music system and broadband internet. I can't think of any possible way that this host could have done better as he exceeded every expectation of ours.
The host is a very trusting and welcoming person. He expects you to honestly account for all the things used from the pantry and pay him.
I don't think I will ever enjoy staying in this part of Goa if this place is not available.
