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. ”
Set on a 2-acre farm, in Dahanu’s serene Gholvad village, Cob5 is the ideal getaway to relax and unwind. 5 self-contained cottages, designed to sooth your senses with comfort and style welcome you to an experience of the countryside.
“Such a gem of a place! Discovered this place while randomly browsing on Airbnb, and luckily I decided to try it out. A huge thank you to the host, Sadiq, and his team for making my stay super special. While it's the beauty and the serenity of the place that inspires you, a lot can be said about the food- you could visit here just for the food, its that good. The quaint huts are clean and lovely spaces to unwind, and you can probably go to the beach - though I just spent my time enjoying the company of the ducks, the hens, and other farm animals ( including Brownie the dog and a tortoise out for an evening jog). Kudos to Sadiq for creating such a unique space for people to get away from the daily grind!”
