“Cosy stay...”
Reviewed May 8, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The property is, Walnut Villa, is a kilometer and a half from the Panchgani Mahabaleshwar road in the Bhilar village.
It is very well maintained...3 bedrooms, a separate dining area and a garden. Ideal for 3 couples, can comfortably accommodate 10 people. The cook and caretaker were very helpful and reachable any time of the day. Chicken curry was very well prepared and tasty. There are board and card games in the house and a fairly good collection of novels too. (Reading Sidney Sheldon on the grass in the early morning cool air and sipping chai was the best moment of the trip!) Overall, the stay was cosy and comfortable.
The one improvement that can be made is the last stretch of road of 20mtrs to the house, which is difficult to maneuver for a SUV.
Tip: familiarise yourself beforehand with the location of Bhilar village in relation to various tourist spots; will help plan the trip more efficiently.

Dear Mr. Aasim,
Thank you so much for the positive feedback. It was a pleasure to host you and your group. We look forward to having you visit us again.
We will definitely see what can be done regarding the last 20 mtrs stretch of road so that it is easy to maneuver a big SUV.

“A home away from home”
Reviewed February 5, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Have been here a couple of times and must say the experience gets better and better everytime.. A perfect getaway with a lovely and homely feel. This is a place where you can enjoy the luxury of a top class hotel and also the precious moments of togetherness as a family and friends (which ideally is the plan for a vacation but unfortunately can't be accomplished in a hotel).
This is all thanks to the Management and the Oh so efficient and willing staff.
A must visit place for an ideal vacation with family and friends..
Kudos!!!!

“Perfect getaway home for family and friends.”
Reviewed February 5, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Visited the property with school buddies. Located in the village of Bhilar, (5 kms from panchgani) which is being promoted by the Govt. as a village of books. Nearby locations are Velocity amusement park- @ 2 kms, Cheese factory- 2 Kms, Mapro Garden-@5 kms.
We had a great time. The house was spic & span.
The caretaker, Mahendra was always around when needed. Helped us prepare the barbeque.
The home cooked food was one of the highlights. Suman is a wonderful cook. We had both Veg (Jain) and Non-Veg menu.
The owner too was always available.....Called us a couple of times during our stay to make sure we were comfortable.

The house has enough sleeping capacity to accommodate min 10 persons.
Location is perfect. Views are great, especially from the bedrooms. All bedrooms have airconditioning.
Clean towels, linen, good crockery.
Would definitely visit again.

“An amazing host”
Reviewed January 1, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Before I talk about the stay... I must say Jatin is a wonderful host, the way he managed our queries and request was really appreciate. The villa is nice with good bedding and amazing people working to make your holiday special...

Will recommend if you going in a group, it's better to stay here as it is just 10-20 mins drive from mapro garden, amazing ambiance and is cost efficient.

“Beautiful weekend getaway resort”
Reviewed December 20, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Recently stayed at the Walnut Villa for a family get-together and had a wonderful experience. The villa comfortably accommodated our group of 9 people. The property is very well maintained with a beautiful yard. The caretakers are warm and friendly and took care of our every need. It is perfectly located in the quaint town of Bhilar not too far from Panchgani town center. Would definitely like to visit this place again.

“Wonderful weekend”
Reviewed September 27, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

A great property which is away from hustle bustle of traffic yet close to city centre. Has specious rooms and cosy family spaces. Caretaker is a lively person and cooks excellent Non Veg food if asked for. We had an excellent family weekend...
