“When we decided to travel to Kasauli we knew we wanted to stay at a homestay and not in a hotel , since we wanted to chill and relax on the getaway vacation . We chose Santila 1), because the house was on the hill itself and two how beautiful it looked . Santila is situated on the hills of kasauli way below the commercial kasauli market, away from the hustle bustle . One look at the beautifully built Anglo - Hill home , we fell in love with it . The mountain view from the house looks into other Himalayan ranges making the sight absolutely breathtaking. The hosts Ms. Lila and Santosh , well we cant call them hosts anymore but friends now , are absolutely amazing . We connected with them so instantly , it almost felt like family . Be it Ms. Lila’s delightfully stories or her heart warming laughter , while Mr. Santosh Kutty is a gem with his adventure stories too. The house is well designed with great aesthetics of a mountain home . The Kutty’s have made sure you feel at home with all the amnesties and cleanliness one requires at home . The bedroom , 1.5 bathrooms , kitchenet are all well loaded to ones requirement. But we loved the living room with a lil bed . It has the most cosiest vibe and you might spend the entire stay in the living room playing board games , watching a movie or enjoy your drinks . This stay was mainly special because of the Kutty’s . They not only lend you their rooms but they also welcome you to their home and their lives . The dinner cooked by Lila Kutty is truly special ,she serves the guest breakfast and dinners with sheer love and joy . Kutty’s special fried egg is my favourite and that’s how like my eggs now . Mr . Santosh kutty is a daredevil himself , if you are adventurous and lucky he might take you for a trek from the house to kasauli markets right at the top Of the hill . Our stay was even more special since we were there on the Christmas Eve. Mulled wine , smoked chicken , Spaghettis , roasted potatoes and lovely stories by the fire place . This holiday was more than a vacation , it was special since we got to spend Christmas with such lovely people . Lila and Santosh are couple goals !! We will surely visit the Kutty’s again because we know we made new friends !”

“This place is undoubtedly one of the best offerings in the kasauli hills. Its one of the most lavishly done up properties with very warm and trained staff to take care of you during the complete stay. The scenic beauty is a delight and the property in itself speaks volumes of its royalty and grandeur. Highly recommended.”

“Sukhmani Homestay is a great place to stay and enjoy a quite, relaxed weekend away from city life with your family. The house is quite spacious with balconies all around. Mr. Rahul was kind enough to arrange a bonfire and provide all that we needed. The staff is also quite friendly and fed us delicious & warm food of our choice. In all it was a great experience, we celebrated the new year 2020 in this house and hopefully will return soon. Thank you to the whole team for taking such good care of us.”
