“Beautiful place”
Reviewed 5 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Excellent place to stay and experience the typical Goan life. The pool is wonderful and the villa is situated amidst dense jungle. Lots of privacy and in a large group like we had, it was real fun.

The food cooked by Vishnu is excellent and the fully equipped kitchen can even invite all the males to try their hands at something interesting.

The swimming pool is a delight and after an early morning run it is the best place to cool down. Or chill with a beer in the afternoon. Or relax after a long day at the Anjuna Flea market with some wine and barbecue at the pool side.

Once you get the hang of the island and the resort's layout, travelling to and fro is a breeze. I would recommend that one take the Ribandar ferry only when going to the airport or Panjim or down south. For all trips to the popular beaches and north, use the Pomburpa ferry. There are small eating places in the island itself if one wants to try the absolute home made curries.

A very quiet and relaxing place. Go party on the mainland till 4 in the morning and come back to recharge your battery in this wonderfully quiet home. Then swim and laze all afternoon at the poolside while you make plans for another wild night in the town ! ;-)

“Lovely Off-beat Trip in Goa.”
Reviewed 28 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Being from UK we were initially skeptical as we booked the villa and requested a location map to get to the villa but were not provided one (we were offcourse provided other arrival info, house rules, and other details via mail incl GPS co-ordinates but we all know how good the GPS works in goa). It was like one of those movies where you are asked to get to the ferry rendezvous point and then have to follow the caretaker to the villa…..not knowing where we were going….

On reaching the villa we were greeted by the wonderful villa Casa Bottu. Our kids could not wait to jump info the pool on first sight of it and was one of the best swims we had in Goa of being in the pool along with rains pouring down at Chorao. The villa is huge and has lovely rooms and also a small mini library.

The beautiful Island of Chorao – peaceful and a quiet village unlike other goan areas closer to the beach. Due to the rains we could not do much as we had planned to go to the Bird Sanctuary initially but had to cancel that plan.

Bishnu & Zitu the caretaker team did a wonderful job and prepared a lovely dinner for us on the night we checked in. I tell you the kids really relished the finger licking chicken tandoori and malai tikka prepared by the duo. All spice levels trimmed down to match our palate as per request of the owner to the boys.

Overall a wonder full experience and would highly recommend to anyone who wishes to spend some quality time by the pool or just with family and mates sipping on chilled beers!!

“The perfect staycation!”
Reviewed 24 October 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A holiday in Goa is always exciting and what made it perfect for us was "The Island Pool Villa!"
A huge property, perfectly maintained and a swimming pool that kept us away from the sea!
The caretaker, Bishnu was the perfect host, he was proactive and extremely helpful. He helped us with directions and cab bookings and even cooked for us (we picked the supplies).

With this place what you see is what you get. If you are looking for a lazy getaway, don't even think twice before booking this place.

The villa is located on Chorao Island, which is a beautiful and quiet place of Goa. The villa itself is a lovely Potugees house with a very nice pool and garden view. Inside decoration and furniture can reveal the owner's good taste. The services provided by manager Vishnu is so caring. He can solve almost all your needs. Last but not least, food prepared by Vishnu, especially the Indian dishes are so nice, that we particularly ordered extra food from him.
