The Riverview Villa is a little oasis of calm.The perfect place to leave the noise and kitsch behind. spent two nights here and loved it!There arent many places where you can enjoy both the serenity of a river and the excitement of a beach. We spent the rain soaked mornings in the gazebo overlooking the river and the evenings at the beach which is a short walk away.The house, with its two cozy bedrooms and spacious lounge not to mention the well equipped kitchen, is the perfect hideout.
The house is ideal for families or friends and has an altogether laid back and homey feel to it. the experience was relaxing and fun and we look forward to spending more time at the Riverview Villa.

Riverview Villas is the ideal idyllic getaway, one that I always dreamed about, but had not encountered till now. The scenic river view along with the warm gentle hospitality at the immaculately yet simply done up villa was just the quiet weekend break we needed. A gentle pause to life's rush.

The beach was a short walk from the villa, quiet and tempting. Though off season, there was enough choice of different kinds of cuisine- local, mangalorean and continental in neighborhood restaurants after a customized breakfast at the villa.

After a two day-one night stay with my family, I can safely say that house No.125 embodies everything right about Goa. As tourism seems to be the primary source of income for this state, This villa proves exactly why people flock from all ends of the country to be in Goa. Set on the Eastern bank of the Talpona river, this villa overlooks the languid Talpona river and the Bay where it meets the Arabian Sea. The view, however spectacular is probably the least great thing about the house. This two Bedroom, one bathroom house, comes with a large and spacious drawing which opens out into a river view deck. A fully equipped kitchen (with an espresso machine and french press might i add!) plus very comfortable and high quality bedding account for comfort and convenience. The bigest selling point of this villa however, is the closed deck at the edge of the house. With a full view of the river, sitting on the deck makes it esem like you're actually sitting on the river, gently drifting along. The deck, made of wood, with a glass table is very elegant yet feels nice and worn-in.
The ambiance evoked by the villa is very warm and Goan. The two housekeepers, cater to nearly every need or desire and are incredibly cheerful. They go a long way to making the house feel like a home. There are two dogs that stay in the house, but those scared of dogs need not worry as they are quite docile.
The canacona beach is one of the most serene beaches in all of south goa, and is lovely for an evening out with friends, or just a morning walk.
All in all, i was quite blown away by the entire 40 hour experience. It's great to visit with friends, or just with your lover, either way, you wont leave this place without a nice smile.

When you want to get away from the touristic feel of Goa, this is the place to be. It's an absolutely magical place, hidden away from the crowds. The rooms are very tastefully furnished, kitchen is well equipped and of course the view is incredible. The outdoor gazebo is the stealer, you could spend all day here, gazing out at the calm river and listening to the sounds of nature. Perfect place for a family or a group of friends.

We recently spent three relaxing weeks at Riverview Villa yet again, our fourth stay in three years ! We are addicted to its idyllic & beautiful location on the Talpona River, where restful, tranquil days are spent hypnotised by the dancing ripples of the river glistening in the sunshine, as it flows directly outside the french doors of both the sitting room & the bedroom.It is such a glorious start to the day to throw open the doors each morning and bond with this magical setting.
The occasional fisherman gliding past, laying his nets,graceful white egrets perched on the river banks or the russet flash of a majestic Brahmini Kite soaring in the blue skies above, are the only interruptions to calming, languorous days.
At dusk, a concophany of birds come home to roost in the trees outside, filling the air with a riot of colour & sound that fills the darkening skies, making way for another dawn to another lazy day in the sun !
Inspite of its central location in Rajbagh, Riverview Villa is a private and wonderful place to escape the bustle of everyday life but with help at hand should you need it, from Suraj, the gently unobtrusive and ever willing caretaker, who lives with his family,just a stone's throw away.
We hope you enjoy this lovely villa as much as we do.

After an exhausting businesstrip Riverview villas was just the perfect place to stay.It has a very private feeling with beautifully furnished and spacious cool rooms but the best part for me was the outside area, where there is a nice place to sit with guests or relax in the little pavillion just next to the river which looks more like a lake.Watch the birds in the morning or the fishermen in the late afternoon.There is always a little breeze.It really calmed me down.A lot of things are in walking distance and it is also nice to have a walk through the little village.
Hope to be back next year!

I am a seaside and beach type of person. For me this is a perfect spot. I like the combination of fun and quiet time with minimal effort in switching between the two. The location is perfect. Set just around the sand bar from the beach on the river's estuary, I can walk over to the beach in minutes to have fun or just stay in and soak in the view.
Riverview Villas has a charming feel of having been lived in, much like a home. However it still maintains the professional qualities of an hotel. It is clean and comfortable.
If you like fishing, there cannot be a more perfect spot without leaving the comfort of the villa.
Riverview villa is very well located in terms of access to most places in the canacona area. Chaudi (the main town) is only 5 minutes away by bike.
The owner is a very charming and straight forward lady who will do her best to make sure you have a very comfortable stay.
I will definitely be back again.
