“Beautiful, refreshing, home away from home”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I visited Homestead Villa in August 2016 for a long weekend with my family. We were a group of 10 adults and two children. The property is beautiful with three gardens and an amazing view of kasuali. It was homelike and provided complete privacy. I especially loved the swing hanging from the tree. I spent most of my time on it - reading and admiring the view. The care takers were very accommodating, hospitable and helpful. The cook prepared the food as per each persons liking. We also opted for a barbecue night at some additional cost - the food, weather, music (we carried portable speakers and music) was great. The villa also had many board games, badminton, football and TT which kept everyone occupied. All in all, we had a wonderful family time and didn't feel the need to venture out at all. As a feedback I would like to provide two suggestions (1) the pricing is a bit high for a place which is non-luxurious but just like home especially considering that charges for food, cook and care takers have to be paid separately. It would pinch less if the pricing is all inclusive (2) Please replace the swing hanging by the tree with a new one. It was falling off and had nails jutting out from everywhere.

Thankyou Smriti, we are delighted that you all had a wonderful stay at Homestead.
On Swing, the monkeys damage it and we replace it every season. Its been replaced this year as well.
The cost of the cook is kept optional as many long term rental guests prefer to cook themselves or get their own helps along. The caretaker has no charges Smriti but most of our guests are so overwhelmed with his considerate nature that they leave a tip( not encouraged y us or desired by him).
Look forward to having you stay with us again.
Regards,
Homestead Team

“Overall good experience, recommended for larger families”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Homestead is a beautiful property that is very well maintained. Very much feel like home. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Surely recommended for larger families more than 5-6 people who visit kasuali. If you are a couple or 3 people then personal privacy might be an issue as the rooms are very close and you share a common living area, just like a home. But for larger families it will be pretty convenient. Lots of restaurants in walking distance to eat and explore.

Thankyou Arjun.
We are glad you mentioned that there is common living room just like in homes. This would always be given as a private bungalow and we never do cross level bookings.
In your case too, we upgraded you to the three room cottage even though yours was a 1 room booking and blocked out the other two rooms.
Am glad you felt at home and enjoyed your stay.

Homestead Team

“Just like home - perfect for kids”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were a family of 5 with a 3 year old and were looking for a spacious homestay with lots of greenery and a great view. This checks all boxes - is open on all sides, has three big lawns, an awesome cook and a friendly manager. Right at the start, we had a change in dates and the hosts were extremely accommodative. Shikha is quite receptive and keen to make the stay pleasurable. The place is just 5 mins walk to the main bazaar which makes it very convenient. They don't charge per meal and only for groceries and the food is exactly what home food should be like - tasty, hygienic and feel-good. We had the second floor which has a nice green lawn behind where we played baddy and TT (the manager supplied us with the equipment) and also chilled out ! The front balcony has a nice swing which my son enjoyed along with the beautiful view which we all relished. It is also mighty convenient if you have a driver - they supply parking, driver acco and food. Highly recommended therefore - if we are in these parts again, we are surely not looking anywhere else.
