The Casa a home stay in Lonavala that can be just about perfect for a quiet weekend getaway or even a longer holiday for friends and family alike. The location is on the Mumbai Pune highway, and we took about 3 hrs to get there from Mumbai. You will need to get off at Centre Point, or Neeta Inn and catch an auto from there, who will charge you Rs 60 for a 2km ride. Fixed rates in Lonavala. The owner tells me that the accommodation rates are seasonal, but extremely reasonable since the home is new so if you're looking for a house in Lonavala and everyone's charging a bomb, I'd recommend this since it is pure value for money.
The place itself is just like home but better. Neat bedrooms, airy balcony, kitchen with a refrigerator, neat bathrooms with geysers and faucets. You can smell the fresh air and go out for a pleasant evening walk, or you can choose to sit back and laze in the balcony with some wonderful tea the maid prepares.
Kailash parbat restaurant is the closest landmark which is a 5 min walk from the Casa. All in All I recommend this wonderful tucked away home for a getaway. Don't forget to indulge in Chikki and Cooper's fudge, which is just 10 mins away by auto.
