“THIS PLACE IS A HIDDEN GEM. I loved the place so much so that I felt like I should keep this house for my own knowledge and parties only, that I would not expose it to the world. Would be unfair, wouldn't it? Samarpan is Kshama's dream work, who is an architect by position. She does both buildings and interior. We were here for the new year's eve. Location: Kshama helps you with exact pin location & preferable mode of transport options. Below details are from my experience: 1. This place is in Saralgaon which is: -14 kms from Murbad bus depot -45 kms from Kalyan railway station -67 kms from Thane railway station. 2. Your own vehicle is highly recommended. Also, there are ST buses from Kalyan & Murbad but I don't have much knowledge as we had our own vehicle 3. The road is in good condition, however Kalyan traffic is hell & you should be mentally prepared for it. Kshama had warned us beforehand. 4. Type the location as 'Visawa Resort Saralgaon' in maps & as soon as you get there, use the pin location provided by Kshama 5. 200 meters ahead of Visawa resort and you will find a big gate, enter the gate, take a left 6. There are wine shops, medical store, lots of dhabas, supermarket, sweet & farsan shop, small vegetable & fruits market, all just 2 kms from the place. The villa location is peaceful and free from hustle bustle which is good. 7. 5 mins walk from the villa and you will find a river, there is a narrow path to get down there. Stay: 1. The villa is huge with 2 bedrooms + 1 loft bedroom, 2 toilets + 2 bathrooms. Open terrace area available with simple lighting done already. There is a home garden backside with a space for bonfire. They provide barbeque if needed, with additional charges. Parking space for 2 cars. 2. The bathroom has body wash, bath salt, shampoo, hand wash, tooth paste, napkins, air freshener, toilet paper. No water issue and very clean. First aid box is available. 3. 1 towel per person & 1 chadar per person were provided. There were enough chairs for casual seating, dining table, rocking chair, extra beds etc. 4. There is a kitchen with vessels, gas, airfyer, toaster, fridge so u can get precooked or ready to eat food 5. Drinking water and ice trays were kept ready. Wine glasses were available 6. There were lots of activities/games like cycle, carrom, chess, badminton, foosball etc. 8. There was a case of low voltage electricity and no power but there is invertor backup upto 2 hrs to work 1 fan & 1 light in every room. There is also generator provision which will support fans n lights for the entire stay 10. Super network issues so they provide jio dongle for internet Hosting: 1. Kshama is an excellent host. Her response is very quick. We were in touch all the time since the booking 2. Caretaker Sharad is really helpful, he gave us a tour of the place. He does not stay in the villa so we call him whenever needed and he gets to the villa quickly 3. Kshama has given a lot of thoughts to this place, so half of the time you will just explore the place and appreciate the creativity 4. There were amazing wall paintings, antiques, decoration, unique books, fridge magnets, cute & important notes with respect to electricity & smoking, indoor balcony swing, disco light, unique ceiling lights etc. She is a gem. 5. Kshama had also provided us the customized check-in & check-out which is very rare with other properties & I loved it 6. We were not sure of headcount of our group, so Kshama suggested that we book for the confirmed ones online & then on the day we pay extra person's charges to the caretaker. Impressed with such flexibility. This place is 5/5 for me but no harm in giving suggestions: 1. Swimming pool will add more value to the place, if possible 2. We faced electricity issue. Since we were awake the whole night, we needed the power, it was hard to contact the caretaker with such low network. We had temporary power available. My suggestion is that the caretaker should visit the place once early in the morning to check things so even if we don't have network availability, we atleast have a contact with the caretaker in person Tips for visitors: 1. Plan the travel in advance, save the directions offline as the road trip has network issues too 2. I think Jio network worked well and Vodafone calling network was average. Airtel was zero for both internet & calling. Find one person within the group who has good network there and use for contacting the caretaker as we had trouble in that area 3. Be light with your luggage as basic amenities are already provided, so you can focus on carrying other things 4. Download your music offline 5. I didn't experience mosquito issues, still carry mosquito repellent We were a group of 9 for new year's eve and we had a great time. Good memories to take along with us. I can't wait to visit this place again. Thanks Kshama and Sharad for this amazing experience.”
We welcome you all for the stay at our house owned by Professionals: Abhijit Sawant Architect and Tanuja Sawant Legal Advisor. EDEN HILLS is a gated community development on a hill top built by a Mumbai based firm and marketed by Soft Corner. The property is around 40 Acres with my land around 3800Sft and house around 1200 sft. The property is 3 kms from the Kalyan-Ahmednagar State Highway.
“The location is beautiful, right in the middle of absolute greenery. The house is tastefully done up with nice touches like pretty bowls, speakers, a bench to dine outside and artistic furniture and linen. The food is pleasingly home-cooked and the caretaker is extremely helpful. The nearest market is not very close so the place is wonderfully quiet. But please carry whatever you need over and above the amenities provided according to the property listing. Abhijit himself gave detailed guidance throughout the booking process and was very friendly, hospitable and approachable throughout. It’s a rustic stay and there’s no network at the house, which is great! Wifi is thoughtfully provided if one wants to use it. A great place to relax and unwind while listening to the birds outside!”
A beautiful view waiting for you to trek ( under the guidance of a local). A reservoir which just a walk away. Visit nearby Fort - which at a driving distance away or just chill with the view of Moringa trees on the terrace. Star grazing ( carry your own telescope) can be done. The sky is clear with no light pollution. Fishing ( fishing rods can be arranged on prior information). Therefore activists that can be done-- trekking, fishing and star gazing.
“It's a beautiful place in the midst of nature... Pleasant staff, decent stay and a brilliant star gazing experience is what you can expect.
