"Blossom's" is a quaint little cottage a part of a village concept designed by the famous architect "Charles Correa in C.B.D. Belapur. It is immersed in greenery, surrounded on three sides by thickly wooded hills. A perfect place for peace and quiet but yet well connected to all that Mumbai has to offer. A number of eating houses, pubs and restaurants shopping malls, shipping institutes & the Belapur rail and bus stations are within a 2 ~4 km radius.
“It’s the dearest cottage in a particularly charming and safe area called Artists Village. Vinney and her family live next door which was particularly helpful when I locked my keys inside. It was nice to have her there and her support. She communicated with me exceptionally well, responding immediately to questions like, how do I turn the washing machine on etc. It was easy to get places using the auto rickshaws through Ola, they come pretty much immediately, and there are lots of useful little shops near by.”
A simple, pretty and tranquil lakeside retreat for the discerning traveller in search of peace and connecting with nature. Excellently located mid-way between Mumbai and Pune, Mehek Villa is perched on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Kalote lake and set amidst a lush one acre garden. Surrounded by the lower Sahyadri hills, the house is set adjacent to the lake. The patio swing and the gazebo are perfect lookout points and there are delightful walks along the dam leading to a waterfall.
“One word: Breathtaking! Mehek Villa will definitely be one of the best Homestay's that we've ever been to. Right from the get go, this place captured us & was just one of the most blissful experiences we ever had. The Property - A completely private & tranquil lakeside cove for a location overlooking the low lying hills & the mesmerizing lake with its tiny islets was a welcome treat to our senses. Starting from the gently curved sloping driveway leading to the villa, the lovely patio on the side, the entrance/verandah also an extension of the main hall & the massive balconies on the 1st floor - all overlooking the beautiful scenery below, & the small steps leading to the lake all combined to make this a one heck of a location. Interiors, Hygiene & Helpers - The interiors were very subtle, tasteful & minimally perfect with every decor pieces & furniture in just the right places. When we arrived, the villa was spick & span with every room cleaned from under & the washrooms sparkling white. The 3 designated caretakers who stays near the entrance were equally welcoming & made sure that all our requirements were addressed promptly. Things to do - Exploring the villa & just soaking in to the tranquillity of the place was lovely. We explored the lake & about 10-15 mins walk by the scenic lake, there was a lovely dock where we had a fun time trying to hook some fish. The low lying hills & a waterfall nearby for an easy leisurely trek was an absolutely delight. Food - Kitchen was very well equipped with a fridge, washing machine, oven, cooking stoves & beautiful cutlery were well stocked for our requirements (though we didn't get to use much as it was an overnight stay for us). There was a menu card of a nearby restaurant at the villa who home delivered very efficiently & the food was wholesome & tasty. Hospitality - the Hospitality of this Mom (Merriam) - Daughter (Tara) duo makes you feel at ease & relaxed instantly. It was a just an absolute pleasure talking to them as it felt like a conversation to an old friend. They were one of the most sensible, friendly & cool host I've spoken to. They literally brought soul & style to this villa. Thanks to both for deciding to open this place up for us ! N especially to Tara for convincing Mom enough!😃”
