Hi! Welcome to my place which is a west-facing small house located inside the Jaisalmer Fort. This property of mine is more than 250 years old located inside an 850 year old UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The breath-taking view from here is that of the Jaisalmer City and at night, the breeze will relax you.
Here, you can rejuvenate and be away from the hustle-bustle of the daily life by being one with the city's heritage!
Once here, you'll have a memorable stay & an amazing Airbnb experience!
This 18th century house where you will be living during your stay was built more than 250 years ago but I renovated it around 25 years back to keep it abreast with modern amenities. The place boasts of a big balcony with a swing looking over the city, a courtyard which leads you to the room and a rooftop to enjoy the expansive view of the Jaisalmer city below. There is a dining hall for where I can serve you delicious delicacies while you watch the Jain temple right from its windows. The place is not only serene but also has an amazing aesthetic feel to it. You can Sit, Relax & Soak in the environment while watching the Sunset from the rooftop or from the swing in the balcony.
The room being shown here is one of our special rooms and is called the “Gokhraa Room”. Right from the windows in the room (The windows in Rajasthan are called 'Gokhraa'), you can look across the city and also the Sun setting beyond the horizon. Also, keep in mind that this room is on the 1st floor and it is accessible through a staircase. Not only the room has a breath-taking view but also a great place for you to sit by, relax, enjoy or even just soak in the beauty right from the comfort of your own room. The mattress is quite comfortable and is of queen size and can easily accommodate 2 people. A stay here will not only rejuvenate you but also enthrall you with the sheer beauty of the city.
My place is situated inside the Jaisalmer Fort which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is not only one of the largest Fort in the country but it is also the largest living fort in the whole of Asia. A walk of 150 meters from the main square of the Fort reaches you to my place. Since my place is located inside the lanes of the Fort, you’ll not be able to bring your own vehicle and would have to walk the small distance (Don’t worry, we can send runners for you!). There are numerous Jain Temples & the Palace Museum nearby and you can take in the ancient history just by walking through the small lanes of the Fort and witness how people are living in it from ages.
-The bathroom is having access to 24 hours Hot & Cold water along with all the other modern amenities.
-There is high speed internet & WiFi which you can access from the room.
