Villa Rivercat will be happy to arrange services for you including taxis, motorbikes, bicycles, doctor, travelling advice, yoga, massage, foreign exchange and tickets. Future plans for the villa include a beachfront restaurant and painting materials in each room, whereby guests may indulge their artistic desires.
Rinoo understands the plights of developing artists and is pleased to welcome them.
If they would like to contribute to the villa’s art collection, so much the better.
Villa Rivercat is the perfect place for meditation or seminar groups, if somebody wanted to organize it. Film-directors, scriptwriters, musicians, classical dancers and all kind of artists are welcome to use this place for their inspiration. It is even possible to rent the complete house for a period of time to use it for exhibitions or a film-setting.

Villa Rivercat has enjoyed excellent reviews in international publications such as The Rough Guides, Lonely planet and Let’s Go. The latter guide chose the house as the Best Kept Secret of India and Nepal:

“Artists and pretty people commune in the calm glow of candle light at the Villa River Cat in the secluded beach town of Mandrem. Find it before it gets found out.”

“More of a retreat than a guest house, this sprawling, beautifully furnished home just off the beach. An international group of beautiful people is encouraged to light candles and bask in the Goan paradise, cooking and eating together.
