“Beautiful homely breathtakingly scenic affordable holiday home...”
Reviewed 5 September 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Dala Rooster is a beautiful, well equipped, well furnished and well kept house I have ever rented. The view from this house is absolutely gorgeous. The housekeeper and his family are very warm, friendly and efficient.
The house has a fantastic gazebo overlooking the valley. We spent many hours in this gazebo chit chatting over cups of tea and snacks.

A must visit with family and friends.

“Great view,good food,homely atmosphere.”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Dala rooster is a comfortable property. Very well managed. We were a group of 10. It was a holiday planned for our parents and their friends. And dala rooster turned out to be just the place. It is located in a calm serene colony and the view of the waterfalls and the dhoom dam during the monsoon was breathtaking.
Mr and Mrs Bhajan, the caretakers were very warm n efficient. The food was delightful especially the barbecue.
I would say that we were happy playing cards, singing songs n just chatting.Not to forget all the garam garam kaanda bhaji that were served!!!!
Please go with family n friends n pets too. Capt Gokhale thank you!

“Awesome property, excellent service, totally worth it!!”

Just loved the place, superb property, mesmerizing valley view (though there were no rains in June end when we went), excellent service by the care takers.

We had booked our stay for 3 days, we took 3 rooms, the entire 1st floor, the rooms were clean and well furnished, for the first day evening we asked care takers Mr. & Mrs. Bhajan to cook dinner for us, the food was decent (almost like home food), then for the next few days we were exploring panchgini and mahableshwer so didn't have meal with them again, but yes the served us sumptuous breakfast everyday.

The property has WIFI, you just need to ask Captain Gokhale (Owner) for password - I was carrying office work, I just emailed Captain for password and he promptly replied and even called to confirm if the WIFI is working well. The only problem we faced is that the WIFI works only in living area and kitchen, there is no WIFI range on the first floor rooms.

Few feedbacks - One of the bathrooms on 1st floor didn't have jet spray, which we thought was a slight discomforting, secondly there needs to be dustbins in all the bathrooms for hygiene purpose, and WIFI in rooms is also needed.

To sum up with a very well built property with brilliant view (im sure in rains its would be way beyond my imagination) and good service. I would recommend all to live this experience if you visit panchgini.

Spellbound would be the least I can say about my stay with family at Dala Rooster. An Heart-warming, friendly hospitality by Capt. Gokhale and Mrs. Gokhale...

Excellent staff with some awesome cooking, and last but not the least, an awesome locale. The accommodation is clean, PET FRIENDLY and vibrant. Having Capt. Gokhale & family as a part of our every meal was delightful...

Will recommend people visiting Panchgani not to miss out Dala Rooster if they are looking for an Home-Stay accommodation....
