Reading the reviews about this place, we were really looking forward to spending couple of days at Balaji Villa. The place had 3 rooms and 2 cottages. We were put up in one of the cottages which looked pretty nice however, after staying there for a few hours we noticed the bed was strewn with rat poo (there was faint smell of rat pee in the bed as well). The care takers swiftly moved us to the other cottage. Given the forest area, we had a lot of insects visiting us in the night (switching off the lights, couple of coils helped)
The swimming pool was another disappointment. it was too small - fit for kids i'd say. and it wasn't all that clean to even take a dip. Although we were looking forward to the pool, we avoided it during our stay.
The food was great (although the lunch and dinner were priced a little on the higher side), the family was cheerful and accommodating.
