Nestled around the most scenic location in the sahyadris, our hill top home is the perfect idea of a getaway and a 5 mins from tiger point. The highlight of our home is the nearby view of scenic valley overlooking an 'L' shaped formation of the mountain which is just 200 meters away from our home.

The space

A very simple but a very scenic location. A private valley with no crowd just 200 mtrs from our farm. Our farm has 2 gardens, patio and a small mango plantation farm. Overall a nature lovers paradise.

Guest access

The entire 2 acre property consisting the farmhouse, it's kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, gardens, swings, patio and the valley that overlooks the sahyadris.

Interaction with guests

I'm always around on the phone to assist my guest with whatever they need.

Other things to note

Please note that our bungalow is surrounded by lush green forest and hence in some seasons there are mosquitoes and insects entering the villa. Even though we have put wire mesh nets on our windows to avoid the insects from entering inside the bungalow, it is advisable to carry mosquito repellent with yourself. During the rainy season, there not enough sunlight as the area where our villa is located is covered around mist and fog 24/7 and hence it becomes very difficult for the caretakers to dry the bed sheets and towels even though we use a heater to dry them. Hence in rainy season, the bed sheets and towels remain a little moist and there is nothing that we can do about it.
We provide our listing on accommodation only basis. Breakfast is provided by our caretaker at an additional cost of rs 60-80 per person. We have a fully functional kitchen which our guests are free to use. Our caretaker can also cook and serve homely Indian styled meals at additional prices of Rs 220 (vegetarian) and Rs 240 (non vegetarian) per person per meal. Our guests can also order food from nearby restaurants and the caretaker will happily pick it up for you or the food will be delivered at the villa. Once your reservation is confirmed, you can call him and inform him regarding your meals and preferences. We recommend you to inform our caretaker 1 day prior to your check in regarding your meals and other arrangements.

The place is greatly located on the top of the hill. My family had nice time at the place. The care taker Yaswant and his family are of great help with food. Since it was raining we could not have a valley view, but the cloud was a great plus. The place is isolated from the crowd and a great place for a weekend getaway from city life. Great place to have bachelor party I observed the below aspects could further be improved: 1. The property was not maintained as shown in the photograph. Since it was a rainy season, everywhere it was slippery and water in the verandah as well. We understand this could have been a seasonal issue. 2. Beware of mosquitoes and smelly beds and linens. Agian this could be due to rainy season 3. The approach/entry to the house is not elder person friendly with steep and slippery steps. There is no way any handicapped or elderly people could enter the house unless you literally lift them. So if you are planning with elderly parents, be aware that there could be inconvenience.

Hi prabodha, Thank you for your public response. I understand the difficulties faced by you and i have started working on them already. As you know that the climate there is cold, moist and windy as the bungalow is located on a mountain top, is very difficult to dry the bed sheets and linens. We use heaters to dry them and hence they remain moist. I will certainly look into all issues described by you and once again thank you for coming over and you are always welcome back.

Great place, largely as described. Quite serene and secluded – to the extent that it is difficult to find. Of course, the caretaker does a good job at giving you directions. Since the mobile connectivity is limited, it is possible that the caretaker’s phone is not accessible once in a while, but the trick is to keep trying. Caretaker is quite helpful and the place is great. There are things that could have been better like (a) linen and towels – caretaker mentioned that it is difficult to dry them in the rainy season which is why they were messy (I believe him on the difficult to dry part but they now too are quite worn off; (b) noisy inverter – since electricity is quite erratic, the house has an inverter. I was impressed to know that they even have a generator. The problem is that the invertor is very noisy and can give sleeping problems to some; (c) the caretaker’s family is cooperative but walks in and out of the house all the time, there is also a dog on the property who also feels free to enter (great if you are a dog lover) but not if don’t want dog hair on the bed sheets when you arrive. It is important that you carry your own mosquito repellents and food items to cook since the restaurant around is not great. All in all great experience, Bharat was extremely kind to have sent a bottle of drink for us.

Thank you for your public response lavanya. i have already stayed working on the issues faced by you. As you know that the climate there is cold, moist and windy as the bungalow is located on a mountain top, is very difficult to dry the bed sheets and linens. We use heaters to dry them and hence they remain moist. I have also looked into the inverter issue and have had the noise problem repaired. Once again, thank you for intimating.
