“Fabulous place with great facilities”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a great time at Tranquility. It is a well equipped 3 bedroom house looking over the mountains. The house keeping staff at this place made our stay very pleasant and memorable. I traveled with my two children and my older parents. The house sits on a hillock and if you are traveling with older guests, please take into account that there two flight of stairs to climb which have about 15-20 stairs.
The home made food was a treat and we thoroughly enjoyed. This place is about 25 km from Shimla and I am very happy that I chose this place as Shimla is very crowded and cramped and does not give the relaxed ambiance that one gets while visiting a hill station. I was looking for some quiet and relaxed time with my family and Tranquility turned out be an excellent choice. For those who live abroad and are wanting to visit this place, this would be an excellent choice as it has all the amenities comparable such as standing showers, western toilets etc. The house is well maintained and is very clean. Thanks to Aarti and the house keeping staff for going above and beyond to make our stay pleasant.

“Marvelous place”
Reviewed July 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Tranquility in 2nd week of Jun, 2016. It is a nice and cozy place for relaxing & holidays. Space in the rooms is amazing. Awesome view from large windows of rooms. The staff and Cook both were very cooperative and gentel. Cooking of our vegitarian food was very delicious & tasty. Views of the hills, valleys, green mountains and good weather all around is fabulous. We would like to come here again.

“Perfect holiday in the hills”
Reviewed June 12, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at Tranquility in April, and it was one of the best properties we've rented in India. The house felt cozy and gave off a very comforting, lived-in vibe. It had vantage views of the hills and the valleys, and we spent many afternoons just sitting by the large bay windows and gazing outside. (Sitting outside was a bit of a problem during the day because of rogue monkeys, but if we had nothing on us - books, food, camera, etc. - they'd pretty much mind their own business.) The services offered by the cook and the caretaker made our stay only that much more relaxed. (Definitely try the barbecue and the masala chai!) We also enjoyed Cookie's company on our walks!

Arati, the owner, was incredibly kind and helpful right from the time we started the booking process to the time we left. She even spoke to our taxi driver to give him directions to the house!

I'd recommend this property to anyone who's looking for a slow, relaxed holiday. And even to those who want a bit of the buzz that Shimla offers - it's only a one hour or so drive to Mall Rd. (Arati can recommend taxis, or else just walk to the end of the road to the taxi stand.) I'd just stay home and read, but otherwise, there's a TV in the living room, stable internet connection, and books and board games that you can ask for.

Tranquility in the Hills was a perfect break from our hectic city lives, and we're so glad to have found it! Hope to come back soon!

“even better than the first time”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

our second visit ...even better than the first time. a truly endearing gesture from the owners a "WELCOME BACK" chocolate cake and a fine bottle of plum wine. beds are as cushy and comfortable, the degree of care, comfort is a level above the other boutique/homestay properties.the staff looks after you so well and caters to your every whim :-). from the crispy pakodas, to the tea, hot coffee, cold coffee, the aloo paranthas, chicken curry, dahi wala chicken, the BBQ, THE KADI, all were yum even the kids, teenagers, adults all of us enjoyed each and every offering from the kitchen. the weather was awesome, the housekeeping perfect. had a good chat with mr and mrs sharma(the owners) who happened to be there.thanks for looking after us.

“Relaxing in the mountains”
Reviewed June 6, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

its a perfect place to chill and relax amongst the mountains. A nice 4 bedroom property at the top of a hill, with perfect amenities and a near perfect caretaker and an awesome cook to fulfil your culinary desires. we were a group of three families and took up the whole house and had great fun. Its an isolated place. no hotels or eating places around. So need to eat at the house and you will definitely love eating there. Food cost is very reasonable and the cook cooks as per your demands. they have a good barbecue also in the evening on demand. Good rooms with adequate facilities, ITs on the Kufri Chail road.
they have good library with all types of books, nice sofas to lie down and read, good sitting areas.
The negative points are that its an isolated place, so need to have your own vehicle to go around. Wont get any taxis nearby, no eating places nearby. not good for elderly people as steep climbs, difficult to take the luggage up .Need to carry some DVDS, and some board games for kids. No connectivity for vodafone, but bsnl and idea works well. The wifi was not working and the caretaker changed the router but still not working.
And another plus point is the ever helpful owner who takes good care of you with her phone calls- happy to help types. The property is also quite budget friendly. Very good for groups going together.
Overall a very good place to chill out and RECHARGE.

Hi Premal, Thanks so much for your visit. Would just like to clarify a few points in your review. 1) There's a taxi stand which is walking distance (or a phone call away) from our house. Many guests have availed of this service.
2) We have at least 7 or 8 board games available on request (even 2 carom boards!) and a large collection of DVDs, again on request.
3) There is a resort which is 500 metres away which has a coffee shop cum bakery. There is also a "dhaba" joint close by. But like you, most of our guests prefer the food made by our in house cook!!!
4) We advise all our guests that there are a few shallow steps to climb up to the house, with a good handrail alongside, as is the case with most properties in the mountains.
5) Due to some problem in the line, everyone's internet was down for those few days, that is not in anyone's control but the weather and BSNL!!!
Look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards, Raja and Arati
