This is a property located on old Pune- Mumbai highway, a little away from Lonavala.
We traveled as an extended family of 8 people. The property is very spacious with 3 bedrooms and some extra mattresses. The cook/helper is excellent and would cook almost anything ( Indian) you ask him too. There is no market in the immediate vicinity so be prepared before hand. Great for people looking for a break from all the noise and chaos of the city. You just sit back and relax, contemplate or whatever!

“the best family holiday ever”

This was the best place for a holiday with family. The bungalow is so serene just as the name suggests. The bungalow was is perfect condition, with ample parking space. When we reached there, everything was in place. Kitchen was equipped with all utensils required on a holiday. The grocery store is just about a kilometer away. The caretaker really just takes care of everything for you as per your needs. he even cooked separately for my 6 month niece. The house also has a library stocked with some interesting reads, we also found a couple of games in the house along with crossword. It was brilliant for a family holiday. There are no A/c s in the bungalow, i was initially worried about this knowing it is right after Holi and the heat will be unbearable but the house is pretty cool and fans are sufficient. The owners are really helpful and guide you with every step. I would strongly recommend this as a holiday spot for all.

“Excellent for family or friends weekend stay”

We were school friends having reunion once a year and for the first time booked a bungalow instead of a standard resort or hotel. To our pleasant surprise this one was a well designed and tastefully decorated bungalow offered for such a reasonable price. Its away from city so we are saved from hustle bustle and crowds. The bungalow parking has ample parking place which took 4 cars in a line but we were anyway leaving the place together next day so parking wasn't an issue. In addition there is enough common place for parking.
Bungalow and its premise is very clean and well maintained. Also the bedsheets and linen was very clean. The place is tidy and totally lacks any clutter.
Caretaker Sumit is a great cook too and served us tea and snacks whenever asked, great starters and also tasty dinner, both veg and non-veg.

We stayed here for the weekend and had an wonderful time. The property is extremely clean and well maintained. There is a lovely garden space which is so green and wooded with a lot of trees, giving you a feeling that you are in a forest lodge. The place has a beautiful tranquil vibe, away from the hustle bustle of the city. The owners and caretaker are also extremely helpful and were very tuned in to our every need. We are well travelled and have been to various homes, but this was one of our favourites. Will surely be back soon.

The bungalow was very neat and clean and it was exactly the same as shown in the pictures. The rooms were very neat and clean and the caretaker SUMIT was really very nice and helping. We didn't face any difficulty during our stay in the bungalow and if i will get one more chance to visit lonavala, i will definitely book this bungalow.
