Casa Do Rio is a comfortably furnished villa standing in a sea front position in a small exclusive complex of eight individually designed houses. The villa has uninterrupted views over Arabian sea and the small rocky cove opposite the house.
Reis Margos is a small fishing hamlet and its claim to fame is the Portuguese Fort that was built as an additional support to Fort Aguada to protect the mouth of the river Mandovi from enemy attack. To the modern day visitor the village is more welcoming, ideally situated half way between the beaches and restaurants of Candolim and the shops and nightlife of Panjim. This is one of the few places in Goa where the road follows the coast giving magnificent views over the sea with numerous photo opportunities. This is also a good area for birdwatching. Last season a fish eagle was nesting a few minutes away from the house and some keen birders spotted 30 different species of birds.
The house is a modern villa on two floors. It has a large first floor terrace and balconies from the master and first floor bedrooms, all with magnificent views. There are french windows from the dining room onto a small paved patio and a small plant filled garden and lawned area to the front and sides of the villa.
L-shaped sitting/dining room with French windows to paved patio. Range of comfortable seating and dining table with bench seats. Cable TV and CD player.

Larger parties can be accommodated easily by booking "Casa Do Rio" in conjunction with "Tulsi" as it is a neighbouring 2 bedroom apartment on the same complex.
PLEASE NOTE Please note this is a non smoking property. Kindly restrict smoking to the garden and balconies.
Saw dolphins from the house on the first morning. Dolphin boat trip from Coco Beach well worth it. Kebabs & Curries (formally 999) was the best food and highly recommended.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you for all your help and advice for our holiday. We had an amazing time and absolutely loved the house and location (Casa do Rio, Reis Margos). You were quite right,- we did see dolphins from the balcony almost every day. We loved the house and everybody that worked there was so friendly and helpful. We particularly wanted to thank Pravin our driver because he couldnt have been any more charming, helpful, knowledgeable, kind and reliable. Thanks again for your amazing help and efficiency again too. We hope to go back again sometime in the future when we dont have a wedding to go to and we can do what we want!
