1000 ft above sea level nestled in the Western ghats. Close to Shirdi (the shrine of Guru Sai Baba). You will love the place because of the hills, nearby rivers, the light, nature, sunrise, sunset, a beautiful garden, the quiet, the solitude. The place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families. A retreat from the hustle bustle of life, to write, to draw and paint, to think. A lovely stopover for travelers exploring the beautiful ghats of Maharashtra. A home away from home

The space

A two storey fully furnished 1450 sq feet bungalow with a beautiful garden and lawn spread over a 6700 square feet property. Views of the magnificent hills of the Western ghats of Maharashtra. A part of a gated community of 250 bungalows called Orange City.

We, six friends, visited Kasara for Kalsubai trek and other surrounding attractions and found this place as an ideal place. The place is very spacious with and includes an equally spacious garden. We fund two bedrooms with double-bed and one bedroom with 3 mattresses were sufficient (each bedroom has separate bathroom although). I personally found the bedroom at second floor with the terrace quite amazing as it provided the terrific view of the surrounding also of Kalsubai peak. The working kitchen with refrigerator and other utensils were very useful. The caretaker Tukaram provided punctual services when called for. The place was clean when we checked-in and, was kept clean and spotless by the caretaker for all the days we stayed. Largely we got better than we expected and most complaining of us was also not able to find much to complain about. Book the place without hesitation.

The place is very good and the location amazing. Around 20 mins away from Igatpuri so it's very peaceful. I just have one protip- carry your own linens and towels. The booking part was done without any hassle and the location is very easy to find . Book this place for a peaceful stay away from the humdrum of the city.

I am glad your stay at Malhaar was enjoyable. Please note that our property is a private bungalow and we make every attempt to provide our guests with the comfort they deserve. However, it is not a hotel or a serviced apartment. The location is in a village area and there is a scarcity of manpower. Therefore, certain amenities like fresh linen and towels are difficult to provide always. I am sure you will appreciate the fact that I had advised you to get your own at the outset of your trip.

The Host arranged for fresh sheets on request and was extremely helpful. The place is not centrally located and one needs to drive to for at least 30 min+ to go to places. The place was nice but had mosquitoes. Although the host had informed us about this and had made necessary arrangements.

You are most welcome Rutu. However, a maximum of 30 min drive to beautiful places makes it very central do you think with Orange City is situated right next to the expressway? :) Apologies for the bugs as the bungalow is loacted at the edge of a verdant forest ravine. I guess you did not close the windows on time in the evening as advised. As indicated by the watsapp messages I am glad you and your friends had a wonderful time at our bungalow. Take care. Drive safe

This was a beautiful two storey house in orange city! Very homey, and secluded. Good for family and social weekends away from the city. The host was absolutely helpful, and sent us exact directions before getting there. The housekeeper runs a dhaaba that can bring you food both veg and non veg. A clean well kept house, with a lawn out front and private parking. Good security, and accessibility from Mumbai. Worth visiting for a quiet weekend with friends or by yourself. We had a lovely time!
