10, Nautical Mile - as the name suggests, this is a Mountain Cottage of a Mariner. This has been made out of love for the mountains and a wish to slow down the pace of life. Ideal for family and 'me' time, this is a home away from a home; tucked away in the lush green forest 15km away from the cantonment Town of Ranikhet at Uttarakhand.
“In a bit of a quandry, whether to pick the host or the space for an exceptional experience. Been to a lot of Airbnb's/Hotels but this wins hands down on being the perfect getaway with amazing location, views, hospitality by Ganesh/Rajesh with a awesome food experience served with a lot of love. The icing on the whole experience was AJ, guiding us and always making sure that our every need was taken care of. Simply put - it was a holiday that ticked all boxes. Not to be missed and for sure - Im going back SOON !!”
Naval officers abode in the Himalayas aptly named . After spending years in the beauty of coastal land and lapping in the sea and with it its infinite beauty ,a naval couple decided to build something in the Himalayas - their first love. It had to be serene, peaceful , with a garden, high but not too much, cool but not cold, homely and warm, in wilderness but connected, green but not a jungle. They searched and searched & finally found a place and built their dream cottage.
“Raghvendra's house is at a great location if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday. The view from the balcony is outstanding. The check in process and all communication was very smooth. Being from Bombay and owning to the heavy rain during our stay, we found the cold very daunting. But after a quick conversation with Raghvendra, he helped arrange additional heaters for us. The caretaker on the property, Ganesh, is extremely sweet, helpful and an amazing cook. We asked him lots of questions about the local cuisine and he also cooked some of those things for us. Would definitely like to go back to this property in the Summer.”
"The Oak Suite" – an ensuite double bedroom with a fireplace, cozy recliners overlooking the beautiful back garden of the villa. Lie in bed and watch the sun rise – this is a happy family place and my favourite suite in “The Deodars” Our summer getaway for 30+ years; we have recently converted the villa into a beautiful living space, a home away from home, for you. Treat it as a lodge where you can spend a few days de-stressing and be enchanted by this quaint hideout
“It was snappy decision for a lazy holiday and this place turned out to be one of the stays so far. Lovely Victorian house made of stone and high ceilings. Spacious bedrooms with comfortable bed and all the quilt needed to keep one warm. Rooms also had heater and fan. Attached bathrooms were clean and spacious. Towels were adequately provided, good quality mats to keep your feet dry and had top of line toiletries . Harish and Bina appointed by the hosts took very good care of us. Made us feel homely and always at service. You can literally ask for anything. The house also had a good collection of books and also Netflix catering to both generations. Living room has cosy furniture and ambient lighting. Highly recommended if you are looking for a quite getaway. Best times spent with family and friends.”
