The place is very good, it is located in a safe community, with a groceires shop nearby (which is rare for India), not far from some places you would like to visit. And if you are okay with walking, then it is ideal for you. Mahesh and his wife are very good people, didn't have any problems with communication with them. The apartment and room are exactly as described on pictures. I'd like to mention a few things. First of all, I work while travelling that's why I really need Internet, and I was asking about it before booking. I get the response that it is stable and always available. However, when I arrived, it turned out that the router is placed very far, so there is no internet in a room (phones are not getting it, and laptop is getting very slow), so I had to work in dining area, which I can't say is comfortable :). Also, AC in the room is placed in a weird way, it will always blow right in your face despite of configuration. The host is aware of bad internet connection in the room and has also mentioned other guests complaining on AC, so I guess it may be improved soon. Everything else was as expected, nothing to complain on.

Response from Mahesh:
Andrew, thanks for your largely good and appreciative review. Re your mention about slow internet, none of my guest till date had found any difficulty in working on their laptops in the room and that is the reason, I had assured that working on laptop will not be a problem at all. On mobiles also, once it is connected by bring it in the Dining Hall, it works in the room also. In view of your specific requirement of higher volume Internet Office Work, I had assured you before giving you the booking that, in case required, I will give you additionally a dongle USB drive with high speed recharge for your work. On day one itself, when I saw you working in the Dining Hall, I offered you the dongle. You, however, declined my offer saying that working from the Dining Hall is ok for you. I, at that time added that if it so, I had also no problem in your sitting in the Dining Hall all through your work. It is not appropriate on your part to say that there is no internet in the room. I will certainly explore the possibility of moving the wifi instrument near to the room as suggested by you if the re-positioning does not affect the aesthetics of the Dining Hall. Re the Air-conditioner blow coming to your face when you sleep, yours is the first complaint so far. You have mentioned that we have also mentioned about other guests having complained about the AC, but that is not correct. I will, however, explore the possibility of moving it on the other wall to avoid the blast coming on the face, although it is not easy in a small room.

Mahesh and his wife were excellent hosts. I felt very at home in his apartment. Their place is right next to Churchgate station giving you easy access to many sites. I also visited a number of sites with Mahesh who was generous and kind with his time and perspective.

Mahesh User Profile

My wife and I live in the same apartment. While she is a homemaker, I am a Chartered Accountant & Company Secretary turned businessman, now in complete retirement. I now keep myself fully busy in reading, seeing movies, theater, arts and cultural performances, keeping fit by walking, swimming, cycling and trekking, traveling all over the world and working in the area of spirituality and social causes.
We love travelling in India and overseas having travelled extensively to UK, Europe, China, South East Asia, Japan, Western Africa, Persian Gulf and frequently visiting USA and Australia in the past few years to be with our grand-children, where our children are settled.
Both of us enjoy meeting and hosting people, specifically students and young interns for whom we become mentors. We cherish maintaining relationships.

Ministry of Tourism, Govt. of India has classified my two homestay rooms as “Incredible India Bed & Breakfast Establishment”.

Specific Advantage of the staying at my place:
As many of my guests have described the advantage of staying at my place, it is “location, location, location”. If you are a person who likes walking/running for health and exploring the city, with a least possible struggle, by way of walk, mine is the place to stay. Marine Drive is the best place for walking/running and it is just across the road. I daily walk an 8 KM round. All the sight-seeing places of South Mumbai are within 5 to 20 minutes’ walk from my place. Churchgate part of the Marine Drive where we live, is just adjacent to Nariman Point, Fort-Flora Fountain-Kalaghoda-Ballard Pier and Crawford Market-CST Station. If you enjoy Cricket, Wankhede and Brabourne Stadiums are on either side of the apartment just 3/4 minutes’ walk. For a Foodie, there can’t be a place better, as there are 100s of Restaurants serving all possible cuisines.

Life Motto: Aim always at giving more than you promise.
