Shivi was an excellent host, making us feel welcome from the very beginning with delicious masala chai and biscuits after our long journey. He really took the time to talk to us about Indian culture and traditions which we really appreciated because we had so many questions. I went with a friend and we were completely blown away by the... More

We were not even supposed to come here. Our original destination, Fagu was snowed under and we were given the number of Shivi, whose family owns the place. We called him and he arranged for us to be picked up and brought to his homestay. We were in a valley facing room. There was a large living room with a... More

We are currently traveling around Asia for a number of months and made the perfect decision in booking Aapo Aap for our Christmas, it was a perfect getaway from the trials of traveling and the bustle of India. We had one of the self-contained apartments and were able to make it feel like home for a few days. Shivi was... More

Property is excellent, with a picturesque sight in the background, mix of green forest n bald patch of hill mounds, sun soaked bedrooms n drawing room makes u feel at home n with nature. gr8 stay but at a fraction of the hotel stay. Though far from Shimla city... n that's why its in the lap of natural beauty.

I have stayed with my family from 26th to 30th December 2013. The place is amazing with excellent views of valley. Our stay has been memorable. The place being away from Shimla by about 15 kms, offers serenity and just right for people who enjoy staying away from city's chaos. Shivi with his ever smiling and helping attitude is a... More

Was her just for a couple of nights and loved the experience. Very beautiful home with beautiful view of the hills. Simla is 7-8 kms from here and not a lot to do close-by except enjoying in the lap of beautiful mother nature which is the best part. Food is good, very friendly people around and friendly host.

Beautiful location, 20 minutes drive outside center of Shimla, nice big terraces, nice garden, nice view, royal and comfortable rooms, clean, quiet. It is a very big family house, with extra rooms for... More

We had a lovely stay here. The owners were kind and helpful, even coming to find us on the main road after we got lost on the way. The food was tasty and plentiful, but for us one of the best things about staying here was the incredible view. Our room looked out on to a huge terrace that commanded... More
