Its not just a place to stay, it's a beautiful experience. I went there to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The house itself is so beautiful, you will feel like staying inside all day. The house has everything that you might need. I am really surprised by how much care has been taken to place small small things in the house so that you don't have to go out to purchase them. Also Captain Leon is very helpful person, you can always reach out to him in case you need any help. I would definitely go again in future. Only one thing, during night the lights are little low, not a big issue though.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 1 August 2017 for a stay in August 2016

Thanks to Captain Leo and his help Kalpana we had a great family trip. We arrived late and upon our request Kalpana prepared an awesome lunch for us. She also cleaned the house everyday. The house was as per the description and we enjoyed our stay at Casinha Raibandar. Kalpana is a gem, she cooked meals for us as per our taste and it was served when we wanted it. Her being around the kitchen made our vacation all the more enjoyable.

The only couple of issues we faced during our stay was parking and taking our car out. Since the house is located in narrow 2 way street we need a spotter to give us the all clear to bring out the car. Also because of the BSNL internet, if the net service goes out one cannot be sure when the internet would be back. Perhaps it would be nice to invest in an alternate service provider.

Captain Lobo has well placed instructions in a binder and we could refer it for any issues.

This is the best of both worlds.A beautiful wooden chalet overlooking river Mandovi with all modern amenities. We had an awesome time. The place is ideal for a family getaway. Capt Leo is such a gracious and kind host. All our needs were taken care of. A special thanks to Kalpana who helped our large group with her culinary skills.

We chose wooden chalet for our stay in Goa and it was a great desicion. It was a family trip and we were 9 adults and the house catered to all our needs. With four beautiful bedrooms, hall space, kitchen, dining , garage, balcony , etc. We couldn't have asked for more. There was an in house store,so one didn't have to go out to look for supplies. The house help Kalpana was very efficient and friendly. Glad we didn't choose a hotel. This was a great place to stay at. All the necessary information was provided to us and we this house is located near the Panjim city. So we could go to the city and the market and do our attractions around easily. All beaches were 40 minutes away and it didn't seem like a long drive. Over all we enjoyed and if we go back, we're sure to choose wooden chalet.

“The Wooden Chalet on the River Banks”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Our stay at The Wooden Chalet on the River Banks was exceptional. The house is big, spacious and perfect for family stay at very reasonable price. It is equipped with every possible requirement and contact numbers. Little far from the beaches but this accommodation makes it up for a perfect scenic location offering great views of the river and hills from every room.
A heartfelt thank you to Capt. Leo for all his arrangements and assistance.

“Spacious older house with lovely views situated on a noisy main road. The living areas open to the air.”
Reviewed 19 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A very interesting wood-built house, with views on all floors of the Mandovi river. The ground floor where there is space to spread out is open to the elements as the central staircase leads upwards to an open verandah; therefore these areas became pretty hot at times. (There are fans and even an aircon in this space but it is like having the door open and turning the aircon on.) Air-conditioning in the bedrooms was effective. Upstairs bedrooms are large and can easily accommodate 2 or more people each, but the back wall of the house fronting onto the road is uninsulated and therefore these bedrooms were noisy at times. The downstairs bedrooms are quieter (though the ceilings are the upstairs' floors) and smaller but still good size double rooms. The cleaner was very sweet and would come at the drop of a hat to answer any questions and offered to cook for us. Slightly disconcerting to see her arrive with "rat medicine" and termite spray which was squirted liberally but ineffectually over the old beams as large chunks of matter fell from the ceilings overnight where termites are evidently making themselves at home. Nevertheless had a comfortable stay and was near enough to Panjim to commute easily.
