“Atithi Devo Bhava is what you experience when I first step into Aamchi Wadi. Archana ji was waiting wearing a smile for me and moment I shook my hands I got a vibe as if I am at own home I had lovely 24 hours at her Wadi. I had plans to hike around but I did not leave the place and indeed was smitten by Rajeen and Archana ji thoughts and way of looking towards life . They are awe inspiring couples and have their stories which is worth listening to z Coming to amenities / food / clean illness it is numero uno . Archana ji personally cooked for me and it was lavish meal . Rajeen has travelled extensively across and you name the topic and he has the answers and knowledge Aamchi Wadi is not for those who typically are looking forward for parties . It is for those who want to live a homely life and enjoy the nature and surrounding followed by conversing with Rajeen and Archana . There are plenty of options around to hike or cycle around this beautiful village and Rajeen is best guide to explain the whole area Words would fall short to describe my feelings and experience . All I know is that there would be repeat of this place in near future again Lat but not the least : those who are living with carbon monoxide diet in Bombay and want a fresh stock of oxygen . Take out you car with your pal or loved one with a book or guitar and head to Aamchi Wadi. Go with minimum expectation and return with abundance of Love Cheers !!!!”
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.”
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.”
