The Green Garden Room is one of 2 bedrooms located in my garden apartment in Koregaon Park, Pune's most cosmopolitan and bustling area. You get to be around nature and cut off from everything, yet enjoy being in the heart of the city. Pune enjoys great weather all year, yes!

The space

The room has a queen-sized bed, chest of drawers and single closet, Cable TV and air-conditioning. It has a huge garden facing window and offers you a cut off and chill zone. There is a private bathroom right outside and you might only have to share it with me in case I have guests in the other room.

Guest access

Guests have free access to the garden, kitchen and living areas to read, lounge and generally relax/eat. I will give the guest a housekey so that they can come and go freely. Please note that you can check in anytime but will need to checkout after a 24-hour period. This is because sometimes the room is booked back-to-back. If you need extra time, reach out to me.

Interaction with guests

I work from home so am adequately available to interact with my guest to make them feel welcome and address their queries. At the same time you are here to enjoy your own space so I will be around but not interfering. However, I love to enjoy a cup of chai and homemade pear banana bread with each guest as a welcome gesture!

Other things to note

My cats and vaccinated and home-broken. They are easy to interact with but because of their super high self-esteem they might choose to ignore you. Count yourself lucky because if they like you, they are likely to sit on your lap till you revolt.

It was a pretty amazing and absolutely homely experience for me and my friend. Shalini and her husband are great hosts and we enjoyed interacting with them. Shalini has beautifully designed the home interior. Loved to be at Shalini's garden house.

Shalini User Profile

I am a communications designer and facilitator, which means I work with words and content to create marketing collateral, business presentations, instructional solutions, plus write poetry, articles and blogposts. I live with my three cats Rumble, Rafael and Rainbow in beautiful home where I compost my wet waste, take only bucket baths and pretty much do all my errands walking. I work in the social space on issues such as waste management, abandoned animal rehabilitation, and social discrimination. I love to cook, dance, sing, and take out plenty alone time for my yoga and meditation and plenty of social time for my friends and family--as that is what makes a full life, right? My life motto is: Don't let your self-imposed restrictions keep you in the shadow of your own destiny.
