A perfect home for weary travelers to relax in the evenings after long days' exploration of Mumbai. A Red Agra Carved Stone bungalow is copy of havellis of Rajasthan of ancient times. The bungalow has 2 floors, ground floor has 4 bedrooms, first floor has 3 bedrooms, 2nd floor has 3 bedrooms occupied by me, your host. The bungalow colony of 100 plots has many trees and birds so it has quiet, cool hillstation atmosphere, yet accessible to any corner of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai by Eastern Freeway
Mysore Colony is a 70 year old bungalow type colony that is in a very quiet place, pollution free space, whose temperatures are lower than the rest of Mumbai because trees cool of the space, almost a hill station in Mumbai with 100's of trees and 1000's of birds who sing varied songs with the changing seasons.
Each of the bedrooms have 2 to 3 beds with mattresses but the charges are given per single person so even half a room can be booked at low rates.
The Monorail, Mysore Colony Stop is about 10 minutes away that takes one to Chembur station on one end and Wadala on other end.
The Eastern Freeway has a RCF junction a few minutes away. One can go to South Mumbai on one end and the other end goes to Navi Mumbai, North Western Suburbs as well as connects to Santacruz- Chembur link road to reach Santacruz and Bandra -Kurla Complex as well as Bandra Reclamation.
BEST buses takes one to Kurla, Chembur and Ghatkoper Stations.
Ofcourse taxis and rickshaws are a call away. It is good to live in an environmentally place and work, travel to various places of Mumbai easily.
Yet come home to a peaceful, serene home at the end of the day!! Come home to peaceful slumber and refreshed mornings, with higher % of oxygen and water vapour in the very air that we breathe...The home hidden away among the large trees has a special charm, yet is modern enough with all the facilities.
This place is independent of the owners, the owners stay on the second floor while the 3 bhk flat for the guests is on the first floor and 4bhk flat is on Ground floor, so there is no interference from the owners.
The flat is completely furnished with essential stuff and aesthetically collected paintings and artifacts.
The guests have access to the modern kitchen where they can cook vegetarian meal if they are inclined, there is a dinning space with 6 chairs that is used for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
There is a 400 sq feet of open terrace that is the place for pets with a separate entrance as well is the only smoking zone in the home.
There is background music at home as there are hundreds of birds who provide the background music for many hours.
The professional people charge a minimum of Rs 5000/- to clean up a space littered by fur and other waste so the Security Deposit of Rs 5,000/- is collected on arrival of the guest with the pet to have a through cleaning of home after the pet leaves.
Interaction with guests
I would love to interact with you, my guests, if you have the inclination.
You, the guests stay on ground and first floor of the Bungalow while I stay on second floor so you are most welcome to come up for a chat and few laughs or recommendations about my city. Any guidance/ information/knowledge that I am capable of giving I will happily share.
The guests, you have your privacy and there would be no interference from my side as long as the House Rules are followed. I also respect your privacy so the choice is entirely yours, my guests.
We can certainly share a few laughs anytime.
You have to sign the resister immediately on your arrival that is on the second floor of the bungalow and hand over xerox of your identity documents for the inspection of Maharashtra Tourism.
Guests come home as Gods' representatives, be reasonable, try being a giver too, not just a taker, compromise, there are other guests too, be eco-friendly, water, electricity everything is available but respect them. Put them off when not in use, it is free for you but the farmer in some farm is desperate as neither electricity nor water reaches him, as the cities steal them from his backyard.
There are waste containers in each room. Please place all your waste in the container. The helpers are humans too, do not humiliate them by littering the whole space with tissue papers, plastic bags, plastic bottles, all varieties of paper, rotting food, child's diapers (and adult diapers too). The waste is collected at about 8 am every morning so if there is too much waste, make a trip to the ground floor and leave your garbage outside the 2nd gate of the bungalow where the car is parked and society staff will decompose what is possible and dispose the rest. Admire the living plants on your way back!!!
We like to live well, be happy and keep our distances so that we do not disturb the guests, but sharing a few laughs is always welcome.
This is a family space so no alcohol, drugs and other illegal activities would be permitted. If caught you would have to leave immediately and no refund will be done for remaining period as rules are violated.
Loud music is also not welcome.
Please order vegetarian food at home to preserve the sanctity of the place, you may have any preference outside.
Smoking, if essential, should be only in the open terrace and /or garden on ground floor and not in the rooms, especially bathrooms as other guests have to use the same facilities later.
All pets are strictly in the terrace only, no fur is to be found inside the home or there would be a cleaning fee of Rs 5,000/-.
All prices of rooms are on per bed basis so that you do not pay extra for unused spaces. Pay only what you use why pay for 2 beds in a room though you are single unless you are keen on having the entire room to yourself and do not like the presence of another strange human. In that case you would have to book the same room for 1st as well as second guest, maybe third as well!!
The whole bungalow has hot and cold water round the clock, a rarity in Mumbai. The hot water is solar powered so may be in the cloudy or rainy days it may not be effective.
The check in times are flexible but no help is available so self checking is possible with prior notice so that the keys can be made available. You have to welcome your self in this Krishna Mansion.
This space is my home not a 5 star hotel at a discounted price. If you are searching for a home away from home then this is the place but it is not a perfect place with antiseptic touch, I am an environmentalist who enjoys living with Nature and natural surroundings.
Guests are requested to carry their Valid photo IDs. Please carry your original identity papers and the xerox copies of the same. The xerox copies will be submitted to me, your host, immediately on arrival to the premises and signing in the Registrar Book is essential as it has to be maintained for Dept for Maharashtra Tourism.
I am Anjani Mehta. I am very fortunate that I am living in a very green, quiet area in Chembur east. I am happy to learn new things and know about how the people live and explore larger dimensions of life. I would be happy to share my home with many strangers who may leave as friends.
I am an environmentalist, I work with Nature and enjoy good natural things in life that are more sustainable and less wastage.
