This is a spacious, airy, self-contained studio apartment on the second floor of our family house in the Diplomatic Enclave near the airport. There are lots of books, paintings, two guitars, an itinerant tomcat and a large terrace overlooking a park.

El lugar

The apartment has a spacious sitting area, a very well-stocked library, a double bed, a bathroom/toilet, a small kitchenette and a large and spacious terrace with an outside sitting area. The kitchenette has a fridge, a microwave, a toaster and an electric kettle. Basic cutlery and crockery are available. You can order in food and heat leftovers, but you will not be able to cook a meal unless you are whiz at Microwave cooking or think that buttered toast and coffee are a meal!
A cross trainer is available in the room if you feel like a short workout.

Disponible para huéspedes

There is a washing machine in the common utility area on the terrace, which you are welcome to use, but please do bring your own detergent. The room has an independent access from the ground floor. There is space outside to park a car.

Atención a los huéspedes

We are available on phone or email to help you figure out logistics (that would be Asmita's forte, usually!). Shankar sometimes take guests out on eclectic guided tours of Delhi for a fee. Shankar's family lives on the ground floor and are very friendly and helpful, as well as being extremely knowledgeable about Delhi, it's culture and it's historic attractions.

Usually people pick cities as destinations. After a week with Asmita, Shankar and his family, I'd pick the Chankars as a destination, for the privilege of staying with them. The apartment is above the family home, with its own private entrance, a 20-minute/Rupees400 ride from the airport. You could ignore the family entirely, but it would diminish your stay to do so. Shankar taught me to cook meatballs a whole new way that made them light as a feather, and he and Asmita made me feel a welcome part of the family. His parents were involved me in stimulating discussions on history, art, and current events. But if you'd prefer not to take advantage, you can come and go without being seen. The apartment is in the Diplomatic Enclave about a Rupees100 tuktuk ride from most places you want to visit. Nearby is a modest local market and 2 or 3 restaurants, along with a number of state bhavans where you can eat the food of almost every region of India at reasonable prices. I would return simply for the pleasure of the Chankar family and their terrific roof terrace apartment. The rest of Delhi is a bonus, not the other way round.

A wonderful stay. The flat is beautifully decorated and presented and perfectly located in a leafy, peaceful spot but central, with everything you need nearby. I was welcomed warmly and made to feel very much at home. Shankar and Asmita were incredibly kind and helpful every step of the way.

My stay with the Chandra family was one of the most welcoming AirBnb experiences I have had. Shankar's parents Kumi and Anil, and his sister Mira were my hosts, and they were extremely kind and warm-hearted. The room itself is wonderful - a large studio with plenty of space and kitchenette. It's a great refuge from the huddle and Biddle of Delhi, and close to cafes, the local market and transport.

Asmita and Shankar were traveling when I stayed but they made sure that everything was well organized and I had no problems finding their place and checking in. Shankar's parents were warm, welcoming and extremely friendly making me feel like an honored personal guest. The location is fabulous, a quiet peaceful neighborhood in the heart of the diplomatic enclave - very safe and central. The space itself is lovely with book-lined shelves and interesting curios. It is located on the terrace, a self-contained living area that gives a perfect mix of privacy and the feeling of staying in a home.

Shankar and I are lifelong residents of Delhi and in love with this city. Shankar is a film maker, photographer, nomad and collector of curios, while Asmita teaches at a university in Delhi. We like cats, dogs and intelligent, broad minded and honest people. Shankar sings, draws and cooks like a dream. I like to think that I'm a super-organizer who is given to running everyone's life for them if given a chance...!
