This was our 2nd trip to goa and 2nd stay with Sir captain leo lobo.As usual the property was well maintained.We had an awesome time.Home away from home!!only one shortcoming that we didnt get certain items like eggs ready to eat meals etc apart from maggi.Various items were provided in the lazy cottage when we booked it in 2015.We arrived at midnight so we had to manage with maggi.Just a request to maintain some more food items for the weary travellers like us who reached god awful hour.Overall everything was perfect and hats off to Captain Leo for the maintenace of the property and the ever smiling and helpful Kalpana di.Thank you for a peaceful and relaxing holiday!!!!
My husband and I loved Captain Leo's place. It was so spacious for the 2 of us and beautifully located - close to Panjim and right on the mighty Mandovi which flows right outside. The amenities were superb. Everything was thought of and provided- even purified drinking water! Kalpana, the friendly cleaning lady came every day and was kind enough to put our clothes into the washing machine and dryer for us. Captain Leo is a kind and considerate host and it was a pleasure to meet his family. I can't recommend this place highly enough! Would like to make it my permanent go-to place in Goa.
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.
Extermly happy ...the property is on the bank of the river mahandi with the entire house having view to the river...salute to the captain as all minute things have been identified and noted ....you seriously feel at home as everything is organised and notes avaulable....the staffs are awesome
Loved this place have never experienced this piece of GOA
Thanks captain and team
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.
