An urban homestay/ farmstay with modern ammenities. With a fully functional kennel for dogs. A place where you can also learn sustainable living off an acre farm.
“Rajeev's place gives a great feel of what ecotourism is like - all the vicinity of Mumbai. The place is easily accessible by all vehicles. A high level of cleanliness is maintained, which one might not expect in a place like this. Rajeev is a very friendly host and would be more than happy to take you around the property explaining the nuances of farming he's applied. Creature comforts are kept sinple; don't expect amenities equivalent to a similarly priced hotel. This is a place where it's strongly recommend you spend time outside the room exploring or simply relaxing. There are currently 8 dogs (7 of which are rescue dogs) on the property so expect animal noises and interaction. They are well behaved and supervised. Balloo is the sweetest and friendliest of them all. Be sure to give him some love when you're there.”
A charming Parsi-owned pet-friendly farm stay at Gholvad, Master's Courtyard is just 15 minutes from the beach. This gorgeous homestay offers 4 lovely rooms & a magnificent courtyard displaying the owner's personal artifact collection.
“Loved the experience. The hosts were themselves present to make the stay very comfortable. Nice and a clean property. Good collection of books to unwind and do nothing. Porus (the host) was kind to allow travel with our dog. His wife was a very kind lady and we had a great time at the breakfast table with the other guests chatting about their time and sharing their stories. The helpers were great and made my dogs meal as instructed. The nearby beaches are not that great with garbage all over, but the walkways and the orchards around are a good experience. ”
Into nature I go, to lose my mind and find my soul. This is a 7 acres of organic farm with more than 740 trees of different varieties. At our farm you will gain insights on how organic food is grown and harvested, before it reaches your dining table.
“We were very glad to see that the place is simple, rustic and yet stylish in it's own way. The surrounding is covered by lot of plantations, one can just relax, take a walk around, hera the birds chip, observe different trees, their farm animals and connect with Nature. The brick house stay was a different experience, it always kept the ambiance cool even in scorching heat afternoons, also it is well lit with natural light and well ventilated. We spent most of the time on the porch because of the pleasant surrounding. One can enjoy perfect sunset and sunrise. Evenings and early mornings were pretty cool. Ah, the food was fresh and tasty, thanks to the lovely local ladies. I cannot forget the fresh hot bhakris they served and pampered us like anything. To summarize, go for the unique experience and lot of stories from Fawzan that will keep you intriguing and entertained. This farm is plastic free, all the more reason to visit, we need more such places and mindset. Thanks for Fawzan for such an experience.”
