The villa is located very conveniently, right next to the Mumbai - Pune old highway near the second exit. Very tastefully done interiors and spacious to boot, it was everything we were hoping and some more. The villa has large windows letting in a lot of natural light and is in a gated compound which gives a sense of security which is important when traveling with family including a baby.
All the rooms are fully equipped with all necessities and luxuries. The drawing room is a pleasure to sit in and talk, the recliner was a hit with everyone in our group wanting to book a turn to sit on it, the bedrooms have nice beds with good firm mattresses. All the washrooms were very clean and had geysers and showers. The kitchen was adequately equipped the only addition I would suggest is a Microwave. The garden has chairs and a table to enjoy the cool evenings. There was even a hammock, however it was a bit on the narrow side and maybe suitable only for kids. There were people in the neighboring villas maybe due to the long Holi weekend. It gave the whole area life and we did not get the feeling of being alone in the compound.
I am not sure about public transport, however we had cars so travelling was not an issue.
Sheshadri was a very kind and communicative host. Gave us a great deal of information about the place and the surroundings. Also provided details for whom to call for any issues and the numbers of various cooks and restaurants around so as to get food delivered or eat at home whichever we preferred.
All in all our group of 6 and a baby had a great time and felt that our trip was made even more memorable because of this villa.
