About this listing
Mi Casa Su Casa:) Welcome home. I love the idea of offering my guests the comforts & intimacy of a home, while remaining totally respectful to their privacy, security & unhindered accessibility.
You will be a part of an exciting, vibrant community of travelers. Bathe in an open air shower on the Patio, chill out in a hammock, enjoy breakfast with chirping birds & squirrels for company or a candle lit dinner under the stars :)
You stay at a hotel while you live in a home. Live it up!
My home is a gorgeous Villa with a mix of Spanish & Mangalorean architecture, located in the green, serene environs of Koramangala, Bangalore. In the heart of the town, yet tucked away on a quiet street by the park giving a feeling of a country home.. All windows & balconies, barring one, open into a park. I consider myself a warm & courteous host. The place offers serenity of a countryside house and the warmth of a loving home.
In terms of physical space, the bedroom itself is spacious & elegantly furnished with lots of natural light, 2 full sized mirrors, a study desk & private attached bath. It can easily accommodate four guests. It has one Queen Sized bed & one Queen Sized Futon complete with bed linen, duvet & pillows.
A home is only as good as the people that inhabit it. I love to attract guests from far & away who like social spaces, prefer their breakfast at the kitchen counter or the dining room, dine in at favorite neighborhood or a destination restaurant with a friend/s as compared to dining alone at that fancy Michelin Star restaurant in the hotel :)
A discerning solo traveler who loves her comforts, values her security & wants her privacy need not necessarily opt for a lonely hotel room. Mi Casa beckons her :) to be a part of exciting, vibrant community of travelers. Indulge herself with an open air shower on the Patio, chill out in a hammock, enjoy breakfast with chirping birds & squirrels for company or a candle lit dinner under the stars :)

Interaction with guests
I consider myself to be a social, warm & friendly host. However, my interactions with guest solely depend on Guest's preferences.

Welcome home :) I am an entrepreneur, technology enthusiast and excited about my new startup. I live with Pepper & Tango - my two adorable boxers in a gorgeous Villa in an upscale part of Bangalore, Koramangala. I love to meet new people, share experiences, life stories & laughter :) I have totally loved hosting each one of my guests and in the process discovered that genuine, heartfelt warmth is precious & no amount of artificial smiles & curated services can substitute it.
I am a big music aficionado and I am high on Blues & Jazz for the past year or so. I still listen to EDM but no so much into it now. It's Blues, Rock & Indie Folk, Folk Rock, Bluegrass, Jazz & Bollywood that I enjoy listening nowadays.
I'ld be delighted to make your stay in Bangalore comfortable & hopefully memorable :) Please feel free to ask how I could be of any assistance to you in Bangalore. I'll try & do my best to be of help.
