Location is really exotic"

Posted 14 Jun, 2016

Beautifully located among hills, and strawberry farms, the bungalow was grand. We had a full floor consisting of 2 large rooms, one lounge cum dining room, a huge balcony overlookig the hills and a river on one end and at the entrance an open sit out. We enjoyed the space, the view, the chirping birds, good care and food by the Care taker and his family. The weather was very pleasant and cold enough at night to use a blanket during our stay in the first week of March 2015. However, upgrading the bathrooms will be helpful. We were more than delighted to visit strawberry farms, enjoyed plucking some and eating fresh ones too. Visited many places surrounding Panchgani.

And Homely"

Posted 14 Jun, 2016

The place is a little tricky to find since it is a kilometre off the road. We had our own car so it was not a big issue but otherwise be prepared for a bit of searching. Prashant helped us find the place and we loved it as soon as we saw it. The view is beautiful and the calm and greenery is awesome. The valley and the lake view is precious. Prashant and his family made our stay very comfortable. Their home cooked food is delicious. They served us customized breakfast and any time we preferred at a very reasonable price. The only con is the rooms as not as clean as a hotel room should be. Also ground floor room lacks privacy. But other than that Highly recommended. Stayed June 2015, travelled with family

''Just Wow''

Posted 14 Jun, 2016

For those who look for peaceful stay away from market/crowd, this place is the one of the best places to stay in Panchgani. Reaching there gets tricky, you have to take a right turn just before Manama Restaurant if you are reaching from Wai. It is very near to Panchgani Health Resort. Do not go with google maps, as they are misleading. The view is good, its a small villa where you get all standard amenities. The food is prepared and served by Maharashtrian family who stay there, its home made, but you will get opportunities to try Marathi dishes. Its clean and neat overall, well maintained. The caretaker (Prashant) is very friendly. Overall, very good experience, at cheap rates.
