Chorao Island Resort is located on picturesque Chorao Island which is encircled by the Mandovi and Mapusa rivers. The Resort is a small village of privately owned villas and apartments and was built as a secret retreat from the bustle of the coastal belt with an emphasis on peace and tranquility. Exotic plants and bougainvillea flourish around the villas and almond trees line the lane leading to the sparkling blue swimming pool.
“Sandpiper” is a lovely one bedroom cottage which stands in a shady garden and is only 30 seconds away from the residents’ swimming pool and the sunbathing terrace. There is a deep terrace which runs the width of the villa which has been furnished with comfortable seating and a dining table and chairs so that you enjoy outdoor living to the full.
You can take full advantage of this delightful central location with the exclusive car and driver included in the price of your holiday. This means within a 40 minutes drive (and a short ferry crossing) you can, for example, be sunbathing on one of Goa’s magnificent beaches; exploring the World Heritage site of Old Goa or bartering for bargains at the flea market. Or you can do nothing at all and simply relax by the pool.
Chorao Island is the Goa of yesteryear but not for long - work on the bridge connecting it to the mainland is soon to start so come now and enjoy it while you still can.

CAR AND DRIVER FACILITY
So that you can take full advantage of this delightful rural location and have the freedom to visit different beaches and sample the many restaurants in Goa, “Sandpiper” has a car and driver included in the price. Shopping is easy too - with the driver to help on where to go and what to buy. If you want to explore, your driver is a knowledgeable guide and can show you not only the usual sights but also the ones outside the well-trodden tourist routes. Enjoy a touch of luxury with your own personal driver (and let someone else cope with the confusing traffic and racetrack rules of the road).
The car carries up to 4 passengers and is available courtesy of Lazydays for up to 10 hours daily between 8 am and 12pm with a minimum of 1 hour for lunch (hours negotiated locally with the driver). All you pay for is the petrol you use and if any journeys begin or end outside the contracted hours there is an additional fixed charge of Rs 100.
EXTRAS Petrol: Calculated at the rate of Rs 5 per km Rs100: if any journey begins or ends outside the contracted hours. Rs50 per hour: If you require the driver for longer than 10 hours this will have to be negotiated with your driver and an hourly rate of Rs50 will be payable. Ferry charges: Rs.7 per crossing.
A couple who want to get away from it all.
People who want a base for exploring both South and North Goa.
Anyone who wants the best of both worlds –the bustle of Calangute and Candolim and the peace of Chorao.
PLEASE NOTE Please note this is a non smoking property. Kindly restrict smoking to the garden and balconies.
This is an ideal setting, a place to laze about round your almost private swimming pool, but with car the driver to explore with. The main dilemma is between buying food in the market (Mapusa and Panjim both excellent) to cook OR wandering in to the restaurant for a relaxed meal and gossip. FINALLY I write this brief poem of praise For it does, on the whole, what it says The ferry is slower From Chorao (that's in Goa) But it makes for some real LAZYDAYS

Our stay at Dove cottage has been a peaceful experience in such a beautiful setting. The pool is clean and well looked after as was the cottage. All the staff have looked after us very well and have been helpful. Alan & Julia gave us a good introduction to Chorao Island, which was helpful along with the information booklet. Jitu, our driver was excellent, always on time and with some good suggestions on where to go, what to do and where to eat. Mandrem beach was quiet and peaceful but with good facilities. Our overall stay here I would rate at 10/10. Well done Lazydays you have my vote. Jitu, our driver was a very good ambassador for Goa. Always calm, smiling and responsive to our needs. He did many things to help us feel relaxed. A thoroughly good man who it was a pleasure to know.

Without doubt this has been the best holiday we have ever had. Chorao Island Resort is superb, peaceful and relaxing and so very tranquil. All the staff have been superb in their care and consideration and so very courteous at all times. Nothing is too much trouble, especially Mohan and the restaurant team. Jitu our driver has been wonderful and taking is to so many brilliant places and always with a smile on his face. Do go to Mandrem beach in the North. So peaceful and quiet. To all here - Thank you. We will be back soon. Keep up the good work.
