Peaceful location, Very well maintained. Near to bus depot.
I would highly recommend the place to all..
Myself and friends spent 1 day at the bungalow on 16-Sep-17. We were a group of 7.
I had sent an inquiry for the availability of the bungalow for rent on the TripAdvisor website and I got a prompt response. Was able to complete the booking in a quick time. Had to NEFT the payment to the owner's account. Pricing is fairly reasonable. Rashmiji, the owner of the property clarified all the queries I had about the property.
Location of the bungalow is some 15 minutes away from Lonavala. Located close to Malavali railway station and very easy to find. The Bungalow itself is part of a gated complex of bungalows which makes one feel secure and safe.
The bungalow is fully furnished and completely functional with 3 decently large bedrooms. The bungalow has been furnished well & with taste, like one would furnish it for oneself and feels like home. The whole place is maintained well and is very clean. The bedsheets, lenins & towels were all very clean. The hall is reasonably spacious and seats 8 people very easily. Importantly the images of the bungalow on various website match with the real thing.
The kitchen too is fully functional including a gas stove, refrigerator and substantial number utensils/dishes/glasses/mugs.
Barring the microwave, everything in the bungalow is operational including the TV (Tatasky).
The caretaker Sumeet is like icing on the cake, very polite, cooks awesome food, veg & non-veg. We had him take care of food end-to-end. We had a mix of veg & non-veg friends so we just told him what we wanted cooked. He bought all the raw material and cooked some awesome stuff. We had him cook Kanda Bhajis, Chicken chilli dry, Chicken gravy, Veg gravy, Chapattis, Kanda poha, egg omelettes and lots of tea. He is just too good.
Amazing and relaxing stay. Will definitely be coming back with family & friends again and would definitely recommend it to others.
Couple of suggestions to the owner would be
1. Please get the microwave fixed
2. One of the couches needs some repairs
3. Evaluate if Internet service (WiFi) can be provided.
A lovely bungalow with great service from the caretaker, Sumeet. A very clean and well maintained bungalow that comfortably accommodated 10 people. The option of cooking our own meals or having Sumeet cook them for us, was much appreciated. It was a hassle-free trip with zero interference and ever-ready help.
One of our family members is wheel-chair bound, but the bungalow proved to be well equipped, thanks to the presence of all important amenities on the ground floor with a room and attached bathroom. Though there are a few steps to enter the bungalow, that can be worked around with a little help.
Would definitely be coming back!
We stayed at the place for two days and had an awesome time. The place is clean, well maintained and Rashmi was a very warm host. Sumeet is a very good cook and a great caretaker. Polite and helpful.
I will definitely recommend this place to everyone and will stay at bungalow serenity when in Lonavala again..
The bungalow is spacious and very comfortable. Its a fully furnished and functional place with everything that you would need to make your stay pleasant. The place was clean and well maintained. The owner sent us the direction of the place to the tee and also the location pin shared was pretty much accurate. Did not have any problems reaching the place. A biggggg thankyou to the care taker of the bungalow. He ensured that he did not let us down with any requirements. The food cooked by him is delicious while it gives you a taste of home food as well. Amazing stay...Amazing getaway!!
Stayed at Bunglow Serenity on new years eve. We loved the property and were given excellent service by Sumit, the caretaker. It's an extremely well maintained property and food was really good too. It is easy to locate the property as it is not too far from the highway. Booking the property is hassle free. An outdoor sitting area for a nice bonfire or a barbecue and ample space for parking cars makes things much easier. Overall, an excellent place for visiting with your friends or family. Cheers!!
Everything about the Bungalow was just too good. The stay was comfortable and the caretaker was also polite and helpful. Enjoyed the evening at Bungalow with my family. A little bit of painting of few walls can make it better than some of the hotels. I would surely like to come back once again with my family and recommend the same to others as well.
Home away from home is what I could say.
