Dear sir,It was a pleasure to have you and your family over at our home. Thank you so much for being such wonderful guests and of course for your time for reviewing FHV. We are delighted to note that we were able to reach your expectations. Our business thrives on guests who leave with fond memories and create a wonderful opportunity for us to receive their friends and families. Being located in the thick of a forest does leave all the noise and chaos behind. Once our guests enter the Villa, the endeavor is to create an atmosphere of complete relaxation and an 'At Home' feel. We are happy that you have carried back fond memories of your stay here and we look forward to welcoming you back to FHV soon ! Best regards, Pooja & Sunil"

“SCENIC, BEAUTIFUL & ATTRACTIVE”
Reviewed June 30, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Nice villa with homely environment, away from hustle and bustle. Best place for splendid vacations. We in a group stayed in the property for 4 nights, really enjoyed the property. The best part is terrace garden with stylish furniture in the garden for enjoying your morning and evening tea. Luxuriously maintained by the owner. Sunder and Shalu, a cute couple and care taker of the villa is worth mentioning. We really enjoyed their hospitality and food cooked by them as well. We really cherish the memories of days spent there and like to visit again. Its worth spending. Lastly, the owner of the property Mr.Suneil Ahluwalia was always there to help us from the date of booking and till the end of the stay. Special thanks to Mr.Suneil.

“Paradise in Mashobra”
Reviewed June 29, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Forest Hill Villa is just the perfect spot for a nice peaceful vacation in the hills just next to Mashobra. The villa is extremely spacious with amazing views from all areas, specially from the terrace. The villa has 3 rooms + an attic (which also can be the 4th room), Living Room, balcony next to the attic and an open terrace where you can sit all day long and admire the amazing views.

The couches, beds are extremely comfortable and linen is clean and the overall villa is spick and span. The woodwork, atrifacts and the overall villa is very tastefully done.

The care taker Sundar and his wife are extremely helpful and cook amazing food as per your choice. They guided us about which treks we could take and also took us personally for a small trek close by. Their service is fantastic and are extremely flexible with our timings to prepare food for us.

I would highly recommend people with families and group of friends to stay at Forest Hill Villa.

“Home away from home in the hills”
Reviewed June 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A nice cottage with homely environment to relax and chill out with family. Great hospitality provided by the couple Sundar and Shalu is worth mentioning. They took great care of our needs and were friendly and cooperative. We stayed for 3 nights and still cherish those memories of morning tea in the lawn gazing at the mountains & woods and barbeque nights.

“Tranquil experience..”
Reviewed June 4, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Amazing place, so beautiful that it seems you have entered one of the Enid blyton books or Ruskin bond adventures. The cottage is cozy and tastefully done. Luxuriously maintained by the owners. We were 4 adults and 2 infants who visited this lovely cottage in may for 2 nights. Every minute in the stay was worth the price. Caretakers of the cottage sunder and shalu were really nice and humble. Sunder Bhaiya has really good cooking skills and doesn't dissapoint in anything he makes. We had a bonfire and barbeque session one of the nights which was the highlight of the trip. Amazing vegetarian tikkas. The view from the property is so serene that we did not want to come back. This property is the ultimate beauty in natures hidden nest Mashobra. Book without apprehensions.

“Simply Magnificent...!”
Reviewed May 6, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

One of the best home stay options I have seen. Right from the decor in each of the rooms, basic amenities, cleanliness, view, cooks (Sundar and his wife who served us delicious food), everything was top-notch.

Lots of books for the vivid readers to spend quality time amidst the hills. Mahasu House (another good property is next to it) but if you are a small group who requires three rooms, then don't care to search for any other option than the forest hill villa.

They also arranged a barbeque as per the menu provided by us. Everything was so good about this property. Loved it!!!!
