Yshana was an excellent and very caring host - she was easy to contact and always keen to sort out any issues that arose. With the currency issues in India at the time we were concerned as to how we would pay for car hire but Yshana ensured that the taxi company could be paid through her by bank transfer rather than in cash as is often the case. There was plenty of food supplied and the maid who came three times a week did cook for us on occasion - and the food she produced was excellent. The apartment is well located and within easy reach of the city - quite a long walk but auto rickshaws are readily available from the main road which is a few minutes walk. There are good supermarkets close by and The Marriott Resort is directly opposite - it was possible to get day membership for the use of the pool and spa. There is no shortage of good restaurants within walking distance. The only real issue we had with our stay was a lack of a television - there is one on the description but it has clearly been removed - a table top one was brought the day before we left but there were no connections to use it. However Yshana did allow us to the internet download limits which let us get the news etc on-line. It would have been nice to have somewhere to sit out and enjoy the excellent weather but there is no facility for this - a minor issue. All in all we had a good time and would recommend it if you are looking for a quiet property in a local residential location with easy access to all that Goa has to offer.

It is located on the edge of a small unspoilt village where, most mornings, the fishermen bring in their catch. The deck and patio afford great views of the wide river which teams with bird life ranging from great flocks of house crows to kites, egrets, herons, kingfishers and eagles. You can watch the sun rise to the east and set over the palms and the beach to the west and every evening the light is different and makes the perfect accompaniment to the local beverages. Breakfast was always delicious and served with a smile, the housekeeper will prepare lunch or dinner on request and if you want to eat in you won't be disappointed. The house has everything you need for a two week stay and is very clean and comfortable, the owner is charming and helpful and made us feel very welcome. It is a five minute walk to Rajbag beach which is quiet but if you want more beach action walk to Patnem which is a bit busier and then onto Palolem which is busier still. To the south Galgibag is also very quiet but has some interesting restaurants and bars hidden away in the trees at the back of the beach. You will be spoilt for choice as far as eating out. We ate at two of the three restaurants in the village and the food was superb but for more choice Patnem and Palolem are a cheap taxi ride away. Seafood is surprisingly good value and of a very high standard and the curries are fantastic. This is a quiet corner of Goa and it did feel a bit of an effort to visit the "sights" but a trip up river with one of the local fisherman is a pleasant way to end a day; Chaudi the nearest town is small but frenetic with a colourful fruit and veg market a few days a week and the Tanshikar farm is well worth a visit. We had a wonderful and very relaxing fortnight and would defiantly recommend Riverview Villa, Rajbag and Southern Goa.

The people are so genuine and friendly - didn't meet one person that we didn't like! Saffron Nest is perfect. Clean and fresh. The local host, Myra, made us feel very welcome - nothing was too much trouble for her. Would definitely return - a real home from home.
