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
