“Just like the name says”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

My wife and I spent two nights at this homestay and were blown away by the kindness and hospitality of the family. Not only are they extremely helpful with their advice on things to do around Jaipur, but during travel down times, are a real pleasure to sit around and chat with. Shveta also gave us a great Indian cooking lesson which ended in a spectacular, home-cooked dinner. Really, the highlight of this homestay are its wonderful hosts, but the room we stayed in was also very nice -- roomy with a large bed and attached private bath/shower. There are only a handful of rooms in the house, so if you are lucky enough to find an opening, I highly recommend you make a booking.

I stayed at the home of the best hosts in their Jaipur home for 4 nights. I found this lovely couple very obliging and helpful from the booking process, through to helping me with many Indian complicated things. Even after check out they still are assisting me. They will make sure that you are both comfortable and not ripped off by Indian tourism system. The home is about 6km from city center and a cab can get you there quickly and for just 150 rupees. The area is safe and pleasant and green (near a garden). Meals can be provided at dinner and breakfast is big and tasty. The rooms are large, good bathrooms and comfortable beds. I really recommend a stay here over a hotel. Thanks Shveta and Kul for everything! Hope to stay with you again.

The place is a true haven of peace and hospitality in the buzzing city of Jaipur. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. We truely felt part of the family and learned a lot about Indian culture. Something we wouldn´t have experienced staying in a hotel.
They recommended restaurants, shops and places to visit you cannot find in a travel guide e.g. an ethnic village in the outskirts of Jaipur. Our hosts helped us with our SIM card, train tickets etc. Kul even got up early in the morning and took us to the train station, when the taxi driver we had booked didn´t turn up. Shveta is an excellent cook and prepared an exquisite breakfast (even with one Indian dish).
The villa is even more luxurious than you might expect from the photos. We had a large room, a huge bathroom and a nice terrace. Everything was spottlessly clean and beautiful. The villa is situated in a quiet and safe quarter west of the city center - a perfect place to relax after several hours of sightseeing and shopping in noisy and crowded Jaipur. Regards! Alexandra & Nadine

Jaipur Villas combined excellent accommodations with sincere Rajasthani hospitality to make our stay in Jaipur very memorable. The gracious and warm hosts made us feel like we were part of the family. We experienced true Jaipur culture and learned a wealth about the people of Rajasthan and India from the knowledgeable and helpful hosts. This bed and breakfast gave us a wealth of understanding about India that no five star hotel could ever have provided. We would recommend these accommodations to all who wish to truly experience the beauty of Jaipur and it's people!

My wife and I spent 3 days with Shveta and Kul's family. They were extremely hospitable, and we spent some very interesting evenings learning about and discussing indian culture and history.

We didn't feel like paying customers but rather a part of the family, without it interfering with the privacy of our holiday.

Besides this, accomodation was impeccable: large and comfortable room with terras and jaccuzzi,and Shveta did not fail to surprise us with abundant and delicious indian breakfast.

Regards!
Charlotte and Pieter

It surprised me to see how nice the people were in this place. They helped us with our luggage, our long (and often tedious) questions, our travel plans, our flight ticket mess-up. etc etc. This is impressive stuff considering the price. The rooms are minimalistic but comfortable, though they have everything you thought you'd need. The food = nine on 10. The location was a little difficult to find, but it wasn't a problem once we found our way around.

After many emails with Shveta & Kul & there endless stream of help before I even arrived, I knew I was arriving into what would be a wonderful experience. There is no limit to how much this family will help & look after you to ensure you have the best possible stay and there generosity & warmth honestly touched my heart. Their home is quite stunning & close enough to the city but far enough away from the noise so you wake to the sound of birds in the trees not the incessant honking horns of India!
Food was probably the best I had in India with Shvetas cooking classes being a definite recommendation on the to do list there! Rooms were wonderful, exceptionally clean with beautiful amenities & I cannot speak highly enough of the nearly 2 weeks we spent there.
This family welcomes you from the heart & you become not just a treasured guest but a member of their family. I cannot wait to come visit again (Kul & Shveta you cant keep me away!) and to sample the delicious food (especially the paneer dishes asap!!!)
The best homestay experience I have had for sure.

Room Tip: Do not miss out on the cooking classes!
