Picture this – a beautiful old Goan home housing a lifestyle store selling exquisite Goan antique furniture, rich with the patina of age; and exclusive designer wear by Goas very own Wendell Rodricks. A lovely Portuguese villa retailing the latest in beach and formal wear. A path-breaking store that sells mirrors, art pieces and furniture made out of leaves and plants combined with acrylic sheets and handmade paper. And a series of quaint stalls selling intricate silver Tibetan jewelry – and they allow you to create your own designs!
Where can you possibly expect a better shopping experience than this – right here in Candolim?
If shopping alone doesn’t do it for you – check out the gastronomical delights this area has, to offer you. From the piquant taste of Goan and Portuguese cuisine to the subtle flavors of Italian, Burmese and Thai cuisine. From intimate, candle-lit restaurants to fun bars to a beach shack that resounds with the rhythm of live music, karaoke bar, pool table, internet access and library. If you want more, they’ll also throw in free beach umbrellas, towels and sunbeds!
And if you want easy access to all these pleasures that Goa offers, then make your way to a hidden corner, off Candolim Beach, to a magnificent private villa lovingly designed and run by a celebrated Goan author and his wife. Just 200 meters from the shimmering sands, this beach villa is built on one and a half acres of lush greenery and coconut groves.
The interiors of this 2-storied, 2 bedroom luxury villa will transport you to another world with the gorgeous sweeping wooden staircase; a carved double four poster bed; and traditional shuttered doors leading out onto the verandah. If you need a third bedroom, you have access to a delightful hexagonal guest cottage.
When you’re done with eating, shopping and a dip in the ocean, chill out on a hammock at the villa rental, lounge around on the open deck in total privacy or simply soak in the private pool. Life is so good in Goa!
