My overall experience right from booking to check out was fantastic.
I decided on Radha Cottage solely after reading positive reviews on-line and I am glad I could give my family a great time.
I visited Radha cottage with my wife and 5 month old infant being super cautious about the room hygiene, overall property, food, hospitality and above all staff.
I did the booking on phone with Ms Vidula (owner) who is gem of a person and gave me a better deal than what i could see on-line. She is kind, soft spoken and also helped me decide on a honeymoon room/ cottage for my small family.
After visiting the place, we found the honeymoon room cozy but less spacious as what we expected looking at the on-line pics. This made my slightly uncomfortable at the first go as I also had my infant son along. Through the lady manager I spoke to Vidula Madam who acknowledged my concern and without much questions thankfully upgraded me to duplex Villa (partial possession though) since they were available. Now folks, this is something which I highly appreciate of Vidula Madam, lady manager and Radha cottage as this gave me a sense of what their motto are. Many thanks !!!
We then shifted to Cottage # 9, where we could access a bedroom, living room and a balcony. Overall both were appropriately maintained rooms but duplex Villas are awesome and very spacious for large families or bigger groups.
We stayed here for 3 nights. Every meal was pleasurable and big thanks goes to the seniors chef who is know as 'Mama'. Every dish prepared by him and his team was delicious and my taste buds still call for Mutton Masala. Food was authentic Maharashtrian thali with nice course with limited but adequate choices which is served on your table. I am a food lover and will rate then 5 / 5.
Best was, they were flexible in planning next meal in conjunction with what we would prefer (ofcourse in reasonable limits)
Staff boys are young, energetic and are very helpful. Raju is the senior person looking after everything at the property after the lady manager. Room service is timely.
They have a small garden area with couple of swings and a slide which is mainly a children's play area. Mobile network has limited access here which I loved as you don't really wanna be running around your ever buzzing phones while on vacation. Rooms are equipped with intercom and every reasonable amenity that I wished for at the given price.
I would rank their overall hospitality the best as I experienced Orange County (Coorg) here where their motto is guest's satisfaction and high quality service.
Only con side is Radha cottage is quite distant from the Matheran station which warrants around 20 mins of walk however its worth if you wish to be a closer to the nature with a good property.
Beware of your bags and other belongings with monkeys around.
Again, Thanks a a ton for taking care of my family and I will look forward to visit again in a distant future.
