We stayed for 2 days in May-2016, we were a big family with kids
We were looking to avoid a hotel stay and rather stay in an apartament/villa and there could not have been a better place than Homestead Villas.
Private villa, with lot of space, spacious bedrooms, lawn, games for kids, greenery all around, very well maintained, supported by excellent/very helpful staff - could not have been a better place to relax and unwind for a couple of days.
It is in the heart of the city and very close to Mall road, other tourist attractions - it is only after you make the journey to Kasuali that one realises that this was a very good choice to make as compared to other stays which would need frequent car travels.
We did everything from playing cricket, TT, Carrom, Badminton, Chess, Cards, Dumb Charades, Antakshri; enjoyed sitting in the lawn with a cup of coffee/tea; clicked tons of photos --- well the idea was to relax and the place allowed us to do so.
If you are an online freak who cannot survive without having connectivity, there is WiFi available with very good connectivity
One of the biggest issue in any travel is food especially when one is with kids and this trip was made more memorable with the food we had - excellent cook available prepared whatever we asked for, excellent taste - we only had compliements for the preparation. Property is supported by good staff/caretakers who will not give an opportunity for you to complaint about anything.
Abnout the owner, Shikha is very receptive, proactive to ensure that your stay is comfortable and memorable, there were absolute no hassles to make the booking or during the stay.
Well, while there is nothing that we have to complaint for, here are a couple of suggestions which can be looked into
1. While we came from Delhi where the temprature was 47 Deg Celcius, Kasuali too was warm at ~30-32 Deg Celcius. While the fans work fine, provisioning AC could be looked into
2. The only other suggestion I have is to use printed/colored bedsheets in the bedrooms to add to the color that this property provides.
To summarize, this property is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED in case you are planning to visit Kasauli especially with Family/Kids or if in a large group

There are many tourist attractions in kasauli..but I felt that homestead villa is the best amongst all of them..yes it's a private villa for families to stay but it's so beautiful and serene that it is in itself a must visit place..huge luxurious bedrooms with dining and hall..lush green private lawns...home made food anytime of the day...trust me I have always stayed at the hyatt's and the taj's during my previous holidays burning a big hole in my pocket but I have never felt so relaxed and rejuvenated staying at a place as I felt here..this superbly maintained villa is located right in the city centre and every other tourist attraction is walking distance..play cricket, badminton, table tennis, carrom board, chess, cards and listen to beautiful songs all day, enjoy the cool breeze sitting and chatting endlessly in the lawn....I can't think of any better place I have ever stayed in...highly recommended for one and all...if planning to visit kasauli please look no further...dont waste time and energy looking for hotels or resorts on various websites ...you will enjoy each and every moment of your stay here ...thanks ms shikha (owner) Mr yashwant (caretaker) and Mr bhagesh ( helper) for taking such good care of my family...my son and my father both did not want to go back to delhi...posting 2 of my favourite photos...this villa looks pristine in the night..
Amazing location. Very well maintained place. Its been my fourth trip to this place and i must say its always been worthwhile. I went with my family and friends. Kids had great time. Staff is really HUMBLE and eager to help. Must visit place.
Beautiful property, located amazingly well for solitude as well as proximity to the Mall. Access would be be an issue for persons who have problems climbing lots of stairs, but the large and well maintained lawns are a big bonus for the kids and pets. Rooms and bath are decent.
The cook they recommend is very good too. Staff is helpful. Would love to go again.
This is the second time i visited here , and would really recommend this..
Good staff there to help you out.
Perfect location,homely touch, great hospitality, soothing aura and yummy food and safe place for kids
Very Spacious bungalow, with a great view of the mountains. Shikha, the owner was a real team player from the time we contacted her, she clarified our doubts, helped us with our taxi from Chandigarh.
On arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the caretaker. Everything from the food( cook made super stuff), the helper helped with a smile and the cleaner did beds and cleaned our rooms as in a regular hotel.
The garden is a great place to lounge, for children to play and the bonfires over the chilly December nights that were set up will remain in our memories as yet another New year well spent .
Thank you Shikha
