Description of the Goa vacation cottage rental
Little Paradise Cottage is an eclectic blend of contemporary and traditional design, offering comfortable accommodation with facilities that include air-conditioning, satellite televison, wifi and power backup. Refurbished and restored from an typical goan village house, the cottage is elegantly styled with tiled roofs, white laterite walls, large bay windows and patios for dining, reading, meditation or just sunbathing!

Cool off in the private dip pool, laze in the hammock, sunbathe in your balcony or step out for a swim at the nearby Vagator and Anjuna beaches.The cottage is quiet and safe and the perfect Goa hide out for people seeking a quiet home away from home... and yet minutes away from colourful markets, beaches, churches, forts and the fishing villages of Goa.

Little Paradise Cottage sleeps upto 4 adults and 2 children. Reservations can be made for two or more people. We only accept bookings for one group or family at any time so you will have exclusive use of all facilities during your stay.

VALLEY BEDROOM (sleeps 2 adults and 2 children)

The bedroom opens through glass & wooden shoji like sliding doors to a large private open balcony overlooking the valley of Assagao. Typical goan style inbuilt seating and comfortable chairs make the balcony perfect for that morning cup of tea whilst spacious enough for yoga practice or just sunbathing. The large attached bathroom has a generously sized indoor tub and shower, geyser, washing machine and an outdoor shower and bathing area... for the true tropical experience.

The interiors are minimal and designed with an eclectic mix of a modern two seater sofa, traditonal low divan bed, classical chaise lounge with wooden tables, rugs, art and mementoes from travels'. A large covered patio adjoins the living room for outdoor dining, reading or entertaining. The living area is connected to the master bedroom through shoji-like sliding doors.
A wooden dining table with benches seats 6 people, and opens to the rear verandah and garden - for barbeques, outdoor dining or a lazy afternoon in a hammock under a canopy of wild flowers.

Upon request, the caretaker of the cottage can assist with the shopping of groceries, prepare breakfast and also cook simple, delicious indian food.

The cottage is perched on a verdant hill slope on 1200 sq m of lush green, creating the experience of a 'tree house'. The property has areca and fan palms, ripe mango, cashew and coconut trees and the newly planted fruit trees of banana, papaya, chikoo, lemon and sour sop. The seasonal flowering plants - the frangipani, bougainvillea and raat ki rani - are a riot of colour and fragrance. Little Paradise is a birdwatcher's delight and you can spot a variety of birds of colourful plumage right on your verandah - including the Purple Sunbird, White-browed Wagtail, Tickell's Blue Flycatcher, Red-whiskered Bulbul and the Asian Yellow Oriole.
