We had an awesome experience staying here in Dec 2017. The owner as well as the caretaker were courteous and made sure our stay was delightful.
Right after booking was done, the owner gave us pointers towards what to expect during our stay and also introduced couple of visiting points which are part of the owner's private land nearby & worth visiting. On our first evening of the stay the owner came with goodie bags for the kids (it was Christmas) & everyone loved the gesture. It was great meeting and talking to the husband-wife duo who has built and maintained this villa with love and care.
On arrival we were greeted with a box full of strawberries and shopping bags as a souvenir that we can carry back with us. The caretaker attended our special dietary needs (without sugar, less spicy etc) and served us with good food, just what we needed. (though lip smacking not, it was alright). The caretaker was resourceful and met expectations.
The bunglow / villa itself is beautifully built and kept clean. The pictures reflect the current condition of the bunglow. The linens were clean and fresh, the toilet was spick and span. The kitchen, living area and terrace areas were clean as if they were mopped just now.
The bedrooms are larger than hotel rooms. And have natural light, enough light points as well as charging points. One of the bedrooms also has a crib, in case if you are travelling with an infant for whom you could use it.
The bathrooms have good quality fixtures and are equipped with 24 hours hot water, thanks to the gas geyser. The bathroom equipments appeared new. The toilet was spotless clean.
The kitchen is equipped with basic necessities including gas stove, microwave, utensils, water filter etc. and one could cook there if you had consumables (food) .
The bunglow offers elegant view of the outside area with full size windows which are draped with curtains in Amaltas colour scheme. The terrace areas as well as the front porch area is beautifully carved out and can be a good huddle place for the group. The caretaker offered to light up campfire for us and with Panchgani cold weather we had warm time around it.
Overall excellent place, kept neatly by friendly people. I would definitely go there again when visiting Panchgani.
