Places to stay in Matheran
We are located near the main market. Restaurants, Bars, Shopping, ATMs are a two minute walk. Being on the edge of the hill one can enjoy valley views and breeze from within the property at their ease
  • Great place to stay if you're looking for some peace and quiet and if you fancy walking in the clouds early morning or watching the moon and hills at night. Did not face any kind of problems during our stay and did not experience any bed bugs during our stay as mentioned in the previous reviews. It is a foresty area so a few insects are to be expected but all in all great place to stay at if you're in Matheran.

  • I do not recommend this place to anyone. When I called him up for issues related to bugs on mattresses he said at 11:30 in night he responded back with words "Manage yourself." I am paying to him so he should take the responsibility for all the necessary arrangements 24*7

  • This is very old property but well maintained, located near valley, very scenic location. You can just relax and watch the beauty of the nature without going out. Great hospitality by host. Was very prompt in communicating and taking care of us. Provided all the necessary amenities and information during our stay, Felt very homely. Keep up the great work.

    Sandesh2017-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • A very honest profile. You get what you are promised. Someone looking for a quiet & quaint home like place with a modest budget look no further.

  • Vishwal was very cooperative. The place is very close to market

  • The place was booked by a friend of mine as a birthday present to me. It was kept as a secret the whole time till I visited the the hotel. Obviously, my writing this review shows that I was very happy visiting the hotel. The view from our room was fabulous. Vishwal, the host, is a decent and loving person, he hosted us perfectly. We had both lunch and dinner in the hotel itself and the food was amazing home cooked . I recommend the place to people those who seek for a few days' peaceful stay away from the hassle of the city. Both the place and the host are great.

    Prasad2017-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Vishwal was very Co operative and helpful in providing us with details of things to do in and around Matheran. The home like Indian food available at the property was pure Bliss, and the valley views from the property are just gorgeous! The rooms could use a little upkeep, but otherwise a great stay!

  • Michelle gave the perfect directions to reach and we had a smooth check-in process. The location and property are really serene and we had a great time in a mixed group. The caretaker Nisha & Vijay were helpful and cooked some good food & snacks for us. Just one downside is that the property is not maintained well and is low on amenities (Television is not there and Refrigerator in the main stay was not working, a working one was in the kitchen, which is in a different hut, away from the main structure, so a bit less accessible)

    Vaibhav2018-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Place is good and cool and the parsee traditional furniture is preserved well ,you do not get a valley view or sunset as the trees in the bunglow have grown and as per govt rules they can't be shredded . we found a scorpion in our room at night which is common in hilly terrains . over all my kids njoyed lot . the food served by the caretakers was awesome mde as we requested (without additives and artificial colours) which is a main issue eating outside home. if hosts can do some value addition it would be a great deal at least a wifi connection as due to hilly terrains it's difficult o get cell phone signals so at least important communication can be done by email and keep some crockery for lunch and dinner instead of traditional steel plates and glasses

    Amit2017-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • If one likes distant away from crowd of hill station and quietude and privacy of stay, this is the place to be for stay. Walking is part of this hill station of vehicle free living.

    Tukaram2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Michelle's place for two nights with a group of 6 friends. It was very comfortable and her communication is prompt and precise. The caretakers Nisha ji and Vijay ji were very accommodating and took great care of us. Be it getting stuff for us from the market or preparing great homely food. Her place is a 15 mins walk from Matheran station which is worth the effort once you follow the precise instructions. It is a well maintained property ideal for a group of friends or family. I would love to be back sometime and recommend it to everyone.

    Sannat2018-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay for people looking for a homely stay. Good food and the caretakers were helpful as well. Is located at a distance from the market but is closer to majority of the tourist spots in Matheran.

    Sunil2016-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • great location and amazing food.

    Vinit2017-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • My 2nd time at this cottage I love it here . The food is awesome so are the host. Perfect for a family of 7 far from market but suits me fine . Thank you again for the wonderful time I’ve had at this wonderful place

    Kiran 2018-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Place Is scenic and surrounded by dense woods aside. The care taker Mr.Vijay is a kind and geniune person who will strive for your betterment every minute. His efforts were indeed heartwarming. Onlything i disappointed with, was presence of a snake in washroom which then onwards puffed us with a fear of going to washroom though the care taker had taken ample measures. I had conveyed this to host too she will get that fixed verysoon. Otherwise a superb place to enjoy serenity.

    Parsi Manor, a 19th century colonial bungalow, has been featured by JetWings International Magazine as one of 6 unique stays from across India! A 10 minute walk from Charlotte Lake, this 4 bedroom Parsi heritage villa is a glimpse into a regal era gone by. Security deposit of Rs 10000 should be paid to the caretaker in cash. It will be returned at the time of check-out or via NEFT within 5 days after a careful survey of the home.
    Savor the regal charm of a 130-year old Parsi villa, complete with a Parsi cuisine. Relax on our verandah and watch the famous Matheran monkeys at play. Tastefully decorated with antique Parsi furniture, the Manor is time portal into a British era gone by. Restored with great care, the Manor has been furnished with an elegant blend of vintage wooden furniture and modern amenities. Stepping into the Manor is like stepping back into time. If you observe the antique pieces carefully, you will find little plaques detailing their origin which are a delight to read. The villa opens out onto a cozy verandah complete with wooden furniture, ideal for enjoying a cup of Irani chai while you watch Nature at her finest.
    Charlotte lake is a 10 minutes walk through the forest. You could visit sunset and sunrise point, not too far from the bungalow. The caretaker can help you with directions and a map of Matheran as well as other scenic location nearby.
  • Lovely house and garden, beautifully furnished with antiques, charming staff, delicious food. But far too close to other modern hotels, with flashing neon lights and loud music to be a peaceful, relaxing place to stay.

    Jane2018-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • You can miss it if you don't know where to look but once you are there, it is a pure bliss. Thoughtfully decorated with antiques, golden era furniture and paintings, this place transports you back in time. The common areas were my favourite with comfortable chairs in patio accompanied by their own stash of books for reading, living room with board games and a dinning room big enough to seat all guests together. The private room was spacious and comfortable and the meals were delicious. The Caretaker- Santosh was attentive and very helpful.

    Ayushi2018-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was best air bnb experience ever. Beautiful house, amazing home made kitchen. Host family will take care of you as if you were a king. If you stay at Matheran this is your place.

    Peter2016-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our trip to Matheran was a bit unplanned but we've had our eyes on this place for quite sometime. We are on a constant lookout for quiet and serene home-stays with equally quiet, green and serene surrounding and I must say that the Parsi Manor turned out to be exactly what we have been looking for- an amazingly quiet property right in the heart of Matheran with clean and beautiful rooms and bathrooms. The caretakers Kunda and Santosh were two of the most simple and patient caretakers we've come across. Must commend the food they cooked for us as well which was always freshly prepared and served hot. We loved the Chicken Dhansak they prepared for us. And lastly, a huge thanks to Tejas for being prompt in replies and keeping in constant touch with us, despite we being not able to call her back.. Thank you for making this short-unplanned trip memorable, will look forward to visiting again and recommending the place to family and friends.

    Vinayak2016-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is good. Warm and cozy clean and well kept. But is over priced for a place like matheran.

    Garima2016-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very well maintained. Loved the manor. The caretakers are great. A little away from the main market but situated in a very peaceful area.

    Dhairya2017-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place and excellent care takers ( Santosh and Kunda ) . Heritage structure gives much needed warmth in cold season. Perfect place to escape from busy schedule of Mumbai . I will definitely recommend this place to all ...!!!

    Ameya2017-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful Heritage Villa, nestled in green and scenic surrounding. Very Well maintained. Impeccable service. Finger licking delicious food.

  • A lovely location, close enough from the city and far enough from it's hustle bustle. This place is a nice weekend getaway where you can just sit back and relax. The host Naqisa is very friendly and is always a msg away. Thanks for hosting us :)

    Ashay2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Great and responsive host. Best staff. Best rooms. Must visit for anyone. Value for money. Food is really tasty too.

    Darshan2017-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nice resort but service not upto par. Had a terrible experience getting room service for basic meals. The reception was unreachable most of the times. Though we were offered an extended stay to make up for the poor service, but the service shouldn't have been this poor in the first place. The provision of amenities was also poor.

    Mukul2018-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very close to Neral railways and very secluded and peaceful if u are looking a skip from messy and noisy city life. There are share autos and buses available from East side of the station to this resort. Food, u can only get from their resort and no menu was available except buffet for all time of the day. By evening kitchen will be closed and no food stuff there after. So make sure u carry some instant eatables. Few maintenance issues were there like plumbing problems in the bathroom, leaking ac water etc. Check in was horrible as the service is pathetic. The host Naqisa is good and she responded and resolved any query instantly. No shops or any markets at walkable distance, hence better to carry stuff if anything needed. Since I m from Mumbai only and my preference is a silent location for chilling out, I like this place very much. There is nothing much to say more about. EVen though listing comes under tag matheran, its far away from matheran and climate is just a bit better than Mumbai, definitely not like Matheran. Consider all these points and book the resort.

    Our property is located in the centre of dense forest,with panoramic view of the hills and forest on left,sunrise point is walking distance from our cottage.all basic facilities such as colour tv,bedroom, bathroom, varanda seatout is availab
  • Nice, scenic and secluded place in Matheran. The owner stays nearby and was very helpful with everything. The rooms are spacious enough and clean. The location is not central, but every point is at a walkable distance from the place. Even though the owner provides home made food, I would suggest to eat from other places as it wasn't that great.

    Ananthakrishnan2017-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Kshitij Cottage is a beautiful place. Host Rajendra takes great care of his guests. We had dinner and lunch at the lodge itself. It was wonderful meal prepared by his wife. Tasted very much like home made food and served very hygienically. Rooms and washrooms are tidy. Portico in front of the rooms is a great place to have meals, play cards and enjoy the scenic beauty. Cottage is close to Matheran entrance as well as main Matheran market. So ease of access is an advantage. Beware of the monkeys around, they come in the portico easily. They do not harm just that they snatch away food. If it is a group of 6-8 people this will be a great option to stay.

    Anupriya2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is easily best value for money place in matheran.. Worth for 2/3 days trip if you have a group 8-9 ppl.. the whole vibe of the place is brilliant.. also the owner is really very helpful with everything and the food he prepares is very tasty.. would recommend chicken sukka or fried chicken with pav for non veg eaters n paneer shahi for veg.. would definitely recommend this venue to lot of my friends n family.. 10 star rating to the venue n owner

    Hitesh2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • The place is nice and walkable from market . It's truly value for your money plus the food provided by the host was very good . Ideal place for 8-9 people to stay

    Shrey2017-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I (6 people in total) spent a few days in Matheran taking in a few of the sites. Rajendra was unbelievably helpful in helping us navigete Matheran, which is a tricky place to be with several elderly/not able bodied family members. Rajendra was able to arrange for everything we needed for transportation and itinerary. He even met us at neral station to take us to the house. The accommodations were simple but pleasant. Each room was clean and well maintained, the patio faces straight into the jungle so it felt like we were in the middle of things. Rajendra's wife, for a reasonable extra fee, prepared all meals for us. The meals were to die for. We all loved her cooking. I highly recommend Rajendra's place. Matheran is a very different type of place to visit and Rajendra's property was a pleasant departure from a dull hotel environment. One of the best places I have stayed in India!

    Amidst the 2 acre forest plot we have aesthetically placed the Panorama Bunglow with 6 rooms and 3 levels; 2 rooms on each level. Amenities include ACs, 32 inch TVs, Refrigerator, Garden area etc We have a separate kitchen area that can be used with an additional fee. The fee will give you access to all the utensils needed for cooking and eating.
    It's a total Green plot with lots of trees. If you love nature and are looking for a quiet place to enjoy, you will love the bungalow.
    Matheran, which means "forest on the forehead" (of the mountains) is an eco-sensitive region so you will have to walk everywhere. However, take pride visiting it as it is Asia's only automobile-free hill station. Caution: The roads are not metalled and are made of red laterite earth. Also the network coverage is generally poor through out Matheran.
  • Response rate was within an hour. Devang was very helpful at every step. Clear directions, didn't find any difficulty in locating the place. The place was nice and quiet with friendly caretakers.

    Mugdhaa2016-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • As described in the reviews, I found the property to be located amidst the jungle like location. From the terrace, you do not see anything other than trees and trees and trees. In spite of being in forested area, it is surprisingly quite close to the market and other food joints. The owner is always accessible on phone and super responsive and accommodating to your requests. The caretaker too is efficient and refreshes you with his tea and coffee offerings. Those who like to just relax in the lap of nature but still like to enjoy modern day amenities like TV, air conditioner etc. must experience this place. Overall five stars to the property.

    Rajesh2018-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to chill. Not far from market yet in the midst of Jungle like feel.

    Piyush2017-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • The place is close enough and yet removed enough from the main market. The caretaker was very attentive and co-operative. There are a few power cuts and the bed sheets needed to be changed around but no dealbreakers here. Great place to quiet down.

    Mehernaz2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • The location is exactly as described. You can see the 360 degree VR views as well. Great communication, he called us gave great tips on how to reach and what to do. The location is a stone throw away from the main market and far enough to be an absolutely quite and peaceful place. The sunset point is a mere 20 minute walk from this property. I had planned to get my Labrador but changed the plan at last minute as I was unsure about her behaviour with the number of monkeys in matheran. However if you plan to get a pet, this place is pet friendly. We had meals at the panorama hotel which is just round the corner and was tasty, delicious and healthy. Will definitely come again with my pet (will get a crate this time to avoid pet-monkey conforntation). Kudos to Devang for maintaining this property. Tips for travelers looking to stay here. 1. There is no mobile network, so if you have specific requirements like tea/ milk tie up with the caretaker well in advance. 2. The way to sunset point goes right across the property, if you walk downhill, you can avoid taking the slightly longer route. 3. Path to the property is well illuminated (a bulb for every couple of hundred metres), so post dinner you can easily take a stroll in the main market which is open till (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) . You won't be requiring any mosquito protection as there aren't any (probably at this time of year). 5. It really gets 100% quite at night, no sound whatsoever. Enjoy :)

    Kumar2017-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Total disgusting place please never visit it. 1. It's miles away from civilization with no roads or streetlights so no access I'm the night. 2. It's dirty as hell walls are damp and have moss . ACS don't work and fans are disgustingly dirty. 3matresses smell of urine and are damp 4. Bedsheets and towels are stained and dirty. Pillows smell of excreta and damp as well. There is no hot water till the caretakers decide that they want u to have a bath . And they switch the geyser on u have to pay for everything and give a tip to the grubby cleaners are they never come to your room. And yes payment upfront for a upgraded room and after they take it .. they inform u that the ACS don't work ! Stay away from this place it's disgusting ... I'd love to share the videos and the pictures I've taken ill push it on my blog .... Overpriced and oversold this is the worst place u can come to spend your vacation

    Lovetto2017-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Devang was a very cooperative host and was always there when we needed him. The place was clean and in the middle of the forest. Can be recommended for those who like getting away from Matherans hustle without staying too far away from it.

    We are a villa situated in the main market with valley facing rooms. There is a sit out within our property from where you can enjoy the valley view and breeze at your ease. Being inside the main market area, everything including restaurants, ATMS, Shopping is a two minute walk.
  • A very quaint dwelling amongst nature with an excellent scenic view of the valley. One can enjoy a very quite and undisturbed stay with excellent home cook food which is served hot. The host is very helpful and happy to help in any manner that he can.

    Amitava2017-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for three nights at Vishwals place. The compound is peaceful and close to the main market area, the rooms are simple and the view is just amazing (especially for sunrise). The food cooked by Vishwals mum is really good. We enjoyed our stay.

    Annalena2018-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing host and brilliant view of the valley from the property.

    Krubhakar2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is just the perfect place for a peaceful retreat. Facing the valley, away from noise, yet very close to the market for everything. It left me relaxed and wanting to come back again. Shoutout to Vishwal for being extremely polite and always-so-helpful.

    Robin2018-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • Laxmi hotel in Matheran is a quiet, homely stay with a great view. The host, Vishwal is sweet and super helpful. The house is close to most of the central attractions in the area. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. Truly, a great experience. Thank you, Vishwal

    Shreya2017-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very nice place to stay during my trip. Cottage type rooms, and I liked that very much! Located in market area so all shops and restaurants are nearby. The room was good enough for 4 people. It would be better if there was a geyser in bathroom. Perfect budget friendly place. Vishwal is very co-operative person. Go for it :)

    Abhijit2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, good view, good but simple veg food, super helpful host but roopon amenities are Spartan, room decor can do with improvement but overall value for money

    Ajeet2018-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Ofcourse the view is simply spellbinding. Thats one thing to be kept in mind. The room was comfortable for one day stay, but i wished the fan speed was a bit more so that we could get our clothes dry easily since it rained the whole day. The walls, i feel also need a touch up, may be a fresh layer of painting. The beds could be little more comfy, may be an extra layer of bedding to get more cushioning effect. The host is super friendly and highly gregarious. You can always reach out to him , and he is super helpful. The door of the room in which we stayed does need a complete reconstructing since its upper side was not getting fully closed and some small flies could enter through that. Other than all this, it was a pleasant stay. :)

    Natural. And silent.

  • Awesome place to stay. Away from all the city hustle. The host is very welcoming and very helpful at same time. I would say it waz an amazing get away. Personally i would highly recommend this place.

    Mehul2018-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking for a place away from mainstream market and crowd, this is the place you would want to stay in. It is not commercialized, has authentic British look, cleanliness of rooms, large enough place for a group of 10-14 people. I would recommend this place 10/10 times for people traveling in groups. P.S. If you're a couple, this place is not for you. Only groups should book this place.

    Aniket2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Well it's fun to stay here, although it's little off from city side but you will enjoy the feel and surroundings.

  • One of the best stays I've had. A very beautiful and well maintained farm house. Eventhough the weather was hot and dried up, the farmhouse surroundings were flourishing with greenery (the plants, bonsai, nursery). All aspects about the place has an artistic touch to it. The room was totally beyond expectations. Very very beautiful and well planned!! No time restrictions for using the pool, table tennis and other amenities. The common area is very spacious and beautifully setup with antiques and lights. A simple and tasty complimentary breakfast. We did not opt for their food but there is a good restaurant very close to the property which delivers to the farmhouse. The art studio and clay cottages are work in progress and I would love to visit once they are completely setup. The staff is very friendly and ready to help anytime. Overall, very happy with the experience.

  • Had a really good time. Shiv's staff was extremely cordial and helpful. The homemade food was wholesome. And the pool is very well maintained. Hope to visit again soon.

  • Its the ideal quiet getaway that's rustic and beautiful and within an hour's drive from Mumbai. The whole place is impeccably kept and beautifully decorated. Swimming pool is v clean and the waterfall is a soothing addition. We didn't opt for food, but we should have :). What little we had was truly yummy :). Caretaker and cook and helpers are warm and helpful and welcoming. Will definitely go back. Thanks for the lovely stay Shiv.

    Bungalow situated on one acre of land, 2.5 Kms from Karjat railway station. Has a lot of trees, lawn and greenery. Also has a spacious sit-out verandah with a wide view all around.
    To de-stress Karjat is the right place. If you like nature which is pollution free come share the beautiful surroundings of the place full of hills and greenery. Enjoy being in the flowing waters of a nearby river. Seeing villages of the remote interiors. Hiking and trekking.
    So Shanti Van provides you with all the time that you are looking out for yourselves, peace and tranquility, to fall in love once again.
  • Have been to this place for a quick weekend trip with my family. A beautiful place and very peaceful surrounding. The best part is that one gets the entire property which provides the much needed privacy along with a lady to cook meals (if required) and a caretaker. Ample space and screnery around the house along. Definitely visiting this place again. Cheers.

  • The farm house is a perfect get away from the city. Just a couple of Kms from Karjat Station it is situated in a great spot with a nice mountain view. it is perfect for couples, friends or even family. we spent two night here and loved it. One day we did a day visit to Matheran and the second day we trekked to Sondai Fort about 20 kms from the farm house. The place is clean and has a nice garden where one can have chai and conversations at peace while having peace and quiet all around.

    Rahul2018-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • The place is decent. Host Vijay is good & responsive too. but the area is quite disappointing as there is very less frequency of transportation & Even Network issues were there too as it is in the outskirts area of Karjat.

    Ajay2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best place with all the facilities and services for a peaceful stay. Spread in a very large area with lots of trees. For holidays or break/leave from day to day stressful life and rejuvenation one can stay here alone or with family. Everything is excellent at Vijay's place.

    Come, live a power-packed, full, exciting and creatively satisfying experience and or give into the beauty of nature and relax by exploring what the Italians famously call 'dolce far niente' or the sweetness of doing nothing. Don't worry about your meals, we have you covered.. at no extra cost!
    One room has a double bed & two mattresses, and fits 4 people comfortably. Your booking is with all meals included. The rooms have an attached bath with open to sky showers and a vertical garden that will allow you to stay connected with nature always. All the materials used to build the village are from the earth and is built through earth methods of adobe, rammed earth walls and recycled wood frames. The roofs which are thatched by a team of female artisans from Bhuj are one of the prime features of the village.
    Karjat is surrounded by lush green mountains. The silence and natural surroundings and fresh air are the most refreshing things to look forward to. The local market is a walk away. The home like atmosphere and simple food give the mind and senses a break from the routine. Matheran is just 45 minutes away. There are multiple treks around the area where one can go with a local or even unassisted.
  • A truly beautiful experience. The place is very well maintained, each inch is built in an eco-friendly way and with so much care. The greenery is so soothing. Ganga and Ambica are such sweet hosts. The night trail with Amol was so much fun and we got to spot fireflies, crabs, etc. The pottery class was indeed stress-relieving. We being hard core non-vegetarians didn’t mind having the veg food for a night. It was that tasty. We are definitely going back.

    Ankita2018-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • A very beautiful and peaceful place to spend the weekend. Lovely cottage with breathtaking bathroom. Common areas are very thoughtfully done with lots of engaging activites for your family. I personally loved the seating at the earth cafe. The hosts are very prompt to reply to any queries.

  • We had a lovely stay at the Art Village. The hosts were warm and welcoming and helpful. There wasnt anything much to do in terms of activities in and around this place, but the hosts have been thoughtful to provide books, toys for kids, a projector if you want to watch a movie etc. A day easily passes by without any problems. If you want some Bollywood thrown in, there is ND studios right next door. As in a home stay, there are some small issues with lights not working and geysers not providing hot water etc... but since there were 2 bathrooms for each cottage, this was easily taken care of. The food was pretty decent too. Thanks very much for the good time had.

    Lovely 2 Bedroom Villa overlooking the valley. We are situated right near the main market and restaurants, bars, shopping, ATMs are just a five minute walk.
  • Vishal is a great guy, and his property is centrally located Matheran. The back side of this property is soooooo scenic,I would've given 10 stars if I could!!

    Amit2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Laxmi Hotel is a perfectly situated place where you can easily roam to tourist spots, market shops, eateries and transport. Walkable distance from Matheran Railway Station (Less than 5 mins walk) We had two family rooms which is beautifully situated at valley view where we had Sunrise experience also. Amazingly quite and peaceful place, you can feel that you are close to nature. If you are pure vegetarian then you must have to experience homely cooked Gujarati Thali over there. Mr Vishwal Mehta is a very good host and nice gentleman, very quick in communication and response.

    Harshil2018-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The address provided shows a Villa. But its an old home converted into a Hotel. Scenic, but very bad condition of beds and bathrooms. Host's phone was switched off and we were not even confirmed our stay. Bad experience.

    Tejas2017-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • a beautiful view where u can sit and enjoy nature all day long. convenient location in matheran market.rooms are basic but nature compensates for it.they have a small play area kids too.enjoyed our stay.

  • Valley facing rooms in a heritage building of sorts. As the place is very old don't expect spotless cleanliness and luxurious rooms. But the vibes are very positive and the views and ambience are simply awesome. Vishwal and the others were always available for help.

  • Hi everyone, i went to lakshmi valley view hotel with my extended family and two kids, the property is centrally located in the main bazzar. Its an heritage property dating back to 1907, it used to be a family bunglow latter converted to hotel. Although the rooms available on Airbnb are part of a decade old extension and not part of the heritage wing. Rooms with attached toilets are basic and clean opening on to a veranda, each room can accomodate around 4. since the property is old matheran weather has taken toll on the structure which requires serious maintenance. the best par of our stay was warm and humble nature of our host vishal, who promptly helped us with all the requirements. We were happliy surpriced with the complimentary tea and breakfast(not part of the booking deal. kids were provided with home cooked food by the host. over all a good exprience. Thanks again vishal.

    Kayak. Mountain bike. Trek. Write a book. Or just hang out! Set in a corner of the universe with Mt Kani 5 mins walk. Amazing trekking and mountain biking trails. Bhilvale lake for kayaking. Bon fires, cooking and comfortable living in Geoffrey Bawa inspired architecture. You cannot find a more wild getaway in less than 1 hr 45min drive from the city.
    Experience farm stay in a 3 bedroom farm house with a mango orchard. Mangalorean (kaula) tiled roof with large balconies and verandahs lining the entire house. All materials used are local and recycled. The doors and windows used to be the old Karjat courtroom in another lifetime. And the single panel rose wood writing desk plausibly occupied a place at the viceroys office in Calcutta :-) 3 Pillar could be just the introduction to nature you want to give your children. It is closer to Old Mumbai Pune Highway than you estimate and further from city life than you imagine. Bhilavle lake a mere 50 meters away for amazing kayaking (kayak and mandatory life jackets are part of booking package). A dirt track of 3 km for those interested in mountain biking (2 mountain bikes part of package). Virgin trekking trails start 500 meters from the farm, and for the more adventurous - climbing faces which need professional gear - available on pre booking at extra charge.
    Even though its close to Chowk and ND studios, it's through 1.5km of kuccha road and once at the farm feels miles away from anywhere. The immediate lake access (in summer months the water recedes upto 500m but can be accessed by walking on the dry lake bed), and the 10 min walk to Mt. Kani with virgin climbing trails makes 3 Pillar more of a base camp to explore nature.
  • A very lovely and charming home! The rooms are large and comfortable and have a cozy feel to them. There are books and games in the cupboard - worked really well for the kids, and there is wifi should you need it. The host has taken care to set up the place ad stock it so that you have most of the basic stuff that you would need - the fridge is decently stocked with supplies, there is a coffee maker and there are basic provisions in the kitchen. Soma is very responsive and available to address problems or queries if any. There is a small river at the back if you feel like boating and a few nice trails for walking. We had a lovely weekend there with the whole family!

    Gauri2018-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at the 3 pillar farm was memorable. A perfect weekend getaway from hustle bustle of the city, into a picturesque beautiful village besides the seasonal lake. The pouring rains made the stay even more amazing with gorgeous views. The place to stay was beautifully done, and we had a great family time. Soma is a wonderful warm host who was just a call away, tried to make the stay comfortable and pleasant. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone who was peace, tranquility and 'own' time.

    Tania Anupam2018-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • The place was great.. adjoining a river, with ample scenic beauty surrounding you. The approach is bit tricky, however the end makes it up. Rooms were huge and clean.. kitchen equipped with all basic amenities..garden full of mango trees... heaven for mango lovers!! Naunath was of great help, he was constantly available on a single call... All in all a fun trip.. will be visiting again surely during monsoons.

    Siddharth2018-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect retreat away from the hustle of the city, best to visit during monsoon and winter given the proximity to a lake and natural surroundings. Soma's home is beautiful and unique, giving it a very heritage like feel. Spacious to accommodate 8+ guests easily. Enjoyed spending time in the Mango orchard behind the house. Both Soma and Vishal are great hosts and were very prompt in their responses. Tip: Preferably carry your own stock of food supplies and guests need to manage cooking on their own.Caretaker manages basic cleaning etc.

    Anup2018-05-27T00:00:00Z

    Harish2018-06-24T00:00:00Z

If you want to enjoy a peaceful getaway, this is just the place for that. The rooms are clean and spacious, with all amenities.

    Pallavi2018-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay at 3 pillars farm. The weather and the view of the river from the sit-out was the highlight of our stay. Soma is incredibly helpful with little insights on things to do, and what you will find in the house. Unusual from other air BnB's this one came with a stocked fridge and basic supplies like dal, rice, masalas and basic toiletries. We felt the kitchen and the bathrooms could have been a little cleaner, but a small hindrance in a large bag of goodness. They have cycles, a kayak, games and books to keep you occupied during your stay. Pro tip- while getting there, the maps will take you through a tiny village, don't be alarmed. You have to make your way through it to get to the bungalow. Mind you the roads are really narrow.

    Sanaa2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at the cottage , perfect for a few days away from the hustle. Enjoyed hiking around the place and the kayaking experience. Soma is very prompt with her responses and a great host giving us local tips and providing us with bread, eggs, coffee. The kids enjoyed cycling around the place. Neo the caretaker is very helpful. The last 1.5 km is a complete off-reading experience to reach the place.. once you reach, one enjoys the beauty of the place. The property is well developed with large rooms and comfortable beds.. Loved the chairs in the livings area.. All in all we were impressed and would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking to have a quite rustic getaway. Monsoon and winters would be the perfect time to come back again..

  • It's a good place away from urban area. Very much peaceful with a good privacy to enjoy a holiday.

    Karan2017-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • it's a really quite and nice place for a group of 5-7 people who are looking for a property which is a hour's drvie from Mumbai. The rooms are good and spacious. best time time visit the place would be from June to September. There's greenery everywhere. also the location is very simple to reach and the house is good. we were 6 people and it was very comfortable for all of us. The rooms have attached washrooms and they were clean. This place is a bit far from Panvel station, so do take a private vehicle. also groceries are available nearby in the market. and it is convenient to have a private vehicle. The best part of this place is that it offers a barbeque fire place to grill food and have a great barbeque night with friends. the care taker is very helpful and he will help setting up the barbeque. he will also bring the coal and help you in prepping the food.

  • Great place to stay for a night or two, no disturbance around and quite safe too. Perfect for a small gathering with friends.

    Simar2017-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • It is a lovely house... scenic beauty, serene and calm. It is a comfortable stay with fridge and basic necessities. We faced a bit of a hassle bcoz the electricity went off for almost 4-5 hours! But i believe it was a one off case and the host did stay connected and help us thru. Service from caretaker is less than basic so if u r comfortable to manage on ur own, it is cool. We can get food from the market nearby so it is not too much of an ask but if u want the cook to manage all ur meals well it is a tuffie! All in all a good experience for us coz we were looking at a family getaway and not too many expectations in terms of food and service.

    Armaan2017-07-15T00:00:00Z

  • All the basic amenities are taken care of, the caretaker cooks good food. The owner and the caretakers are just a call away. The location is perfect for a weekend getaway.

    Nirali2018-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Sumit's place between 23rd-24th Feb. Although the place is a bit away from the main highway into Karjat, we had no issues finding it as the map and the directions given by Sumit were spot on. We were a group of 7 people, all family, and each one of us just fell in love with the property as soon as we stepped onto it. It's a fully functioning bungalow with a well-maintained garden in the midst of nature. Although it was hot during the day, the weather cooled down by the evening giving the perfect setting to enjoy a sip of tea sitting on the lawn with the entire group. Sumit pre-empted our needs during our stay and was always available on call to resolve any of our queries. The caretakers were available just a call away all throughout our stay and ensured we didn't face any inconvenience. Delicious meals were cooked by the caretakers (breakfast was included in the fare while both lunch and dinner were chargeable) that made the experience all the more worthwhile and left us wanting for more. FINAL VERDICT: Highly recommended place for a peaceful stay in a tranquil environment amidst nature with your family. Would surely want to go back again !

    Amey2018-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Good Property. Silent Neighbourhood, Beautiful scenery during monsoon with fireflies in the night. Host has thoughtfully loaded the house with an Invertor backup (most important as the power cuts are frequent), Speaker, Card Games, Scrabble, etc. Nice sundeck which overlooks the well maintained lawn. Clean bathrooms. Helpful caretakers. my friends and me had a good time together at Sumit's property.

    Sachin2018-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Sumit is an excellent host and provides u with basic amenities and a caretaker who takes care of all your needs. The place is a little far away from the karjat area, so you will have to travel a lot to get to a store if u need anything. But if you are looking for a getaway in a quiet, peaceful place, i would surely recommend it.

    Gaurav2017-10-22T00:00:00Z

  • I visited this place to spend time with friends on my Birthday! Place is good and had a great time with friends there. Very helpful care takers and good food made by them . As it was 24hrs stay there we could not do much sight seeing as lot of the spots were far from the locations but just 3mins ahead small river passes by and it’s great to dive in and enjoy the rainy season and greenery along side. Also host were very keen on our stay. All the required amenities are there so nothing to worry. Music system made the mood even more better. In all great experience!

    Prachi2018-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Came here with my friends and it was a perfect one night getaway .

    Overlooking the hills of Matheran and surrounded by mango orchards. This architect Vistasp Mehta designed eco property offers an escape from the city to soak up the peace of nature. Relax, read, play, swim, walk, or simply do nothing. Enjoy simple, healthy country food. Ideal for upto 8 adults, max 10. The property is exclusive and the two night weekend package price is good value, as it includes food and warm-hearted service. So please don't haggle! We can help manage the tax. Pls ask how.
    Sohana is a farm house situated in a hundred acre estate, which you are welcome to explore. In line with the objectives of Modak Van Society, you can learn first hand about nature and see rainwater harvesting and solar power in action. Look out for the notes and guide books on birds, trees and flowers. We can comfortably accommodate six to eight adults in two bedrooms and can sleep ten at a push. Larger groups would have to sleep on two charpois or even the floor and we prefer to avoid that. Children under ten years of age would need to be supervised. Water is drawn from the borewell, run through an ozonation process and is very drinkable. We have it tested once a year. The house runs on solar power, so you should not suffer electricity outages. During the monsoons we may be more reliant on the grid. We have A/Cs in the bedrooms, which run on the grid, but we rarely need to use them because the house was designed for natural cooling. Because of the irregular electricity supply, A/C cannot always be guaranteed, so if that would spoil your visit, Sohana may not be for you... During the monsoons and winter we remove the air vent covers and switch the A/C off. The courtyard water tank is filtered and kept bacteria-free by ozonation, meaning we use very little chlorine and can use the water for irrigation of the trees and plants. You will usually find some natural sediment on the bottom and some insects floating on the surface, but it is great for swimming and our help will remove anything that worries you. The river Pej borders the orchard and has a path to help you explore its banks and rapids.
    Nasarapur is a typical small river-side village situated between Karjat (12 km) and Neral (7 km). The hill station Matheran is nearby, as are the Kondana buddhist caves. The nearest shops are a few kilometers away, in Kadav. The nearest places to eat out are about 5 kilometers away. Dada's Grill is near Kadav and there is another good restaurant, Namak, on the Karjat - Neral road, about 14 kms away.
  • Pretty Property with Poor Maintenance and Execution for Luxury Prices This has to be the worst Airbnb experience I've had. To start with - the furniture in the living room was covered with dusty blankets and the tank/pool had bird droppings and feathers settled at the bottom. Karjat gets very hot post March and hence before making the booking I specifically asked Shabnam if both the bedrooms had air-conditioning and she confirmed that they did. On arrival, only the AC in one bedroom was working.  Shabnam told us that she had been trying to fix the AC for almost 6 months! This meant that she had enough time to let us know and we could have booked another property. Shabnam offered to refund 10,000 out of the 35,000 we paid and we decided to adjust by cramming 6 people in the same room.  But our ordeals did not end here. That night the electricity tripped. Shabnam had mentioned how such an issue can be solved by accessing the utility room but the door to this room was locked. The house maids who had left for the day do not have phones and Shabnam did not answer her phone. Most of our phones were very low on charge and soon there was no way to reach out for help. We spent the entire night in complete darkness. You cannot imagine how spooky that was.  When we tried to communicate our concerns the next day, the hosts responded sarcastically instead of being apologetic. We were celebrating my husband's 30th birthday and our plans were completely ruined because of the mishaps. Despite the part refund, not a place worth the money spent. A very unpleasant experience.

    Mohit2018-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nestled a little away from the nassrapur village, sohana is the perfect getaway from city life. As you enter the estate you are surrounded by lush green trees and a beautiful pathway leading to the house. The pictures on Airbnb do not do justice to the beauty of the sohana house, we entered wide eyed as the place was waaaay beyond our expectations. The first thing that hits you is the beautiful patio with arched brick-wall decor and right on the outside the tank (which is hardly a tank, it was just as good as any pool, minus the chlorine). The rooms are exquisite and tasteful with all amenities. Linen fresh and neatly stacked. Jayawanta (the caretaker) and her husband were always around to help for anything. And the food prepared by her was homely and yum! she even prepared kheer for us on special request. Sohana was everything we wished for and MORE. A special mention of the owners, Shabnam and Koen who were always available for our smallest queries and in making our trip comfortable & enjoyable. And for also having such exquisite taste, we sure are stealing some interior decor ideas off sohana! Definitely coming back here!!!!!

    Steffi2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • This bunglow is one of the best property i have ever stayed in. It was so peacefull that we never felt like leaving even the cook was friendly and made sure our each and evry demand was fulfiled. The river beside the house was the best location to watch the sunset with river trees and mountain in the view.

    Rushil2016-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place is much more than it's described by Shabnam or through the images. This is a solace for our regular stressful life in cities. Little difficult to locate (but that's the beauty, isn't it ?) but once in, you are in a different world altogether. To say the least, simple but detailed architecture - interiors of the place is just perfect. All amenities, that we are "spoiled with" for day to day life are all there. Jungle walks amidst whizzing chirr of the insects are just out of the world. The beautiful river Pej flowing just in the backyard and serene surroundings have to be experienced to believe. I've been to many offbeat places but the caretakers here are by-far the best. Though the food options are a little limited due to the limitations of logistics, whatever is cooked and served by the caretaker lady, has a lot of love & affection in it, which makes it, one of the tastiest food each time you eat. Entire space was available for us to wander about and the best surprise was the aam ras (from the mangoes plucked from the estate) preserved naturally and served. Shabnam herself is very approachable and is quite attentive to your queries, if any. Else, you don't really need her help considering the amazing job done by the caretakers.

    Sundeep2017-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • A stellar experience from start to finish. I'm not sure what was more beautiful, the house or the scenic beauty which was like poetry in motion for us. So fluid that your eyes begin to dance in circles to capture the surrounding which go on for miles and miles. When you stay in a house like this so well designed and surrounded by a background so beautiful as if you are in a movie, you feel you are as close to mother nature. The place is located in almost what feels like a jungle and you can take long strolls and check out the rivers which is a beauty in the monsoons or varieties of trees. Let's get down to the brass tax - The house is magnificent, has all the activities from table tennis to badminton, foosball, some board games and let us not forget the pool or the TANK that they would like to call it. You will not need a reason to step out with all the acitivities in house. The helpers Ganpat & Jayawanta were brilliant when it came to making for us simple tasty food which was finger licking good. Don't be fooled by the limited menu as the taste is definitely not compromised. A special thanks to Koen and Shabnam who were always a phone call or (Hidden by Airbnb) away and gave us detailed instructions to help us in case we ever needed anything. Lastly a big shout out to the WI-FI connection in their house which proved to be very useful for (Hidden by Airbnb) /music/work Oh don't forget to vist the Kondana caves or the Rajmachi trek which is 30 kms away from their place. It takes around 45 mins from the place so don't forget to map it.

    Kenrick2017-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful experience at Sohana. The house is beautiful, well designed and sits amidst lush greenery. It is an ideal place to relax, de-stress and just do nothing. Of course, there are things to do if you wish to - play table tennis, foosball or some board games, go for a swim, go for walks - all of which are provided for at Sohana. Carry a book with you if you wish to read. Jayawanti and Ganpat are very sweet and took good care of us, with Jayawanti (who is a great cook) even cooking special requests made by us. We truly enjoyed our stay at Sohana and are likely to be back for more :) Traveler's Tip: The road leading up to the house isn't very good, so a vehicle with high ground clearance is an added advantage.

    Nidhi2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Sohana had been indeed a 'Suhana' experience for me and my group of friends. The house is lot more beautiful than what it appears in the photos. The moment you reach the place and look around it becomes very apparent that lot of heart has been put into creating Sohana. The layout of the house, color, design, selection of the furniture and even crockery is a work of art. As we visited during monsoon, the surrounding was even more beautiful than what it might normally be. It was raining the whole day we arrived at Sohana. The greenery around the house combined with the drizzle made a beautiful picture. The hosts (Shabnam & her husband) guided us during our journey and the location shared made it very easy to find the place. Jaywanta Maushi, her daughter and her husband took care of every need of ours and cooked the food exactly the way we asked them to. We also had the chance to meet the hosts in person before leaving the place and am really glad that we got that opportunity to meet the creators of Sohana in person. This is a perfect place to get away from the hush of the city and indulge yourself in relaxing activities. We even had the chance to have a swim in the pool while it was raining and that for me were the best moments of this trip. Sohana helped me get closer to the nature and shut off from the worries of corporate life for perhaps the best weekend of this year yet!
