Другие важные подробности

The house is modern and functional. There is a barbecue and seven hilly acres. Two acres of vegetables, gladioli and strawberries until the water lasts. Electricity fluctuates and there is no electricity on Tuesdays but it's an opportunity to get out and about and it's a great excuse for a lovely candlelit dinner. There is no wi-fi although 3G mobile access works for most major mobile networks. Mahabaleshwar provides everything from internet cafes to a wide variety of cuisine.

There is very heavy rainfall in the monsoon (June to August) but the house is still open and accessible. A wonderful time to write.

As my friends would be. Lots of good talk and laughter and sharing our books and what we thought of them. No dogs because of Chikki the Alsatian who lives there. No smoking as my husband died of Emphysema three years ago. He was a writer and this is where he wrote his last three plays.

This is one of those places that makes Airbnb so cool. This place has an amazing vibe and a unique character. If you are not interested in sightseeing but just want to spend quiet and peaceful time in Mahabaleshwar, this place is for you. I highly recommend this place.

Go. Just go. Don't overthink this. Just find a date this place is available and book it! Susan's place A Writer's Retreat can be anything you wish it to be. Here's what we did - switched off our phones, picked out books from the amazing collection, had those long-overdue conversations that city life often dont allow for, went for walks amidst lush greenery and sat for hours in that lovely balcony as clouds, mist and sunshine painted the canvas infront of us! Wow...This is definitely a holiday we are gonna remember for a long, long time! Vitthal was super helpful, made our stay extremely comfortable. Our meals were simple but so delicious that I over-ate almost every time. Tintin is adorable, gave us company (infact led the way) when we took a walk around Susan's property. In all, a memorable weekend thanks to a memorable place/experience. Please don't miss it.

Enchanting !! this is our second visit to Susan's place in Chikali, and we have already made plans for next visit. It is truly readers and writers paradise, amidst sheer nature. Vitthal is as always very amiable. A delightful surprise was, however, Tintin. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

The place is too beautiful to describe!! Its more beautiful then pics posted by Susan :) What a lovely view from the room and the sound of seasonal waterfalls and clouds . One of the best holidays I ever had!! We just dint feel like leaving the place!! About the room, it is clean and nicely decorated. We hardly saw any humans during our stay :p .. So the place is secluded. Tips: Get the direction of the place right. You dont see any people/house around for kilometers so nobody to help out. Mobile network goes on and off enroute. Also near to Susan's house there are some roads, where if you drive the car down, you wont be able to drive it back up!! Even four wheel drive vehicles they dont take it down that roads. We were very lucky, we took the wrong right and just then saw a man running towards us and he guided us back. Also its quite misty around this time, so plan to be at the place before noon. Evening it is almost zero visibility. Pack the stuff needed in Mahabaleshwar as there are no shops after that. Susan's place is around 12kms from Mahabaleshwar. And check the spare tyre of your car before driving ;p Thanks Vital for great breakfast and the help in replacing the punctured tyres!! Would be back soon!!

A 69 year old English woman, lived in India for the past 47 years. Books are my life and my passion is the Deccan and its art history. My late husband was an author and playwright and once said "only peace and quiet grow at Blue Valley" but we also grow our own fresh vegetables and gladioli. I have two daughters who live with their lovely families in England and Mumbai respectively. And my three grandchildren keep me busy in either place.
