neighborhood that do a home delivery.and grocery stores that deliver to our home.i will have the take away menus placed..should you need a local sim card,or a local phone please let me know at least ten days in advance.
it is in the posh neighbourhood of juhu,and very conveniently located..
airports are about 20 minutes away.the neighbourhood is quite even though it is still in the heart of the hustle and bustle that is mumbai.grocery stores are a minutes walk away.the nearest hospital( god forbid should you need one) is about ten minutes away.malls and movie cinemas are about a ten to twenty minute drive away.even in the worst of traffic..bandra,and carter road is about a ten minute drive.
there is also a small park with a jogging track( about 400 metres =1 round of the park) within the complex.
the beach is about a 5 minute walk,so jogging on the beach or just for an early morning walk,or an evening stroll,it is a great option.jogging on the streets of mumbai is a bad idea.
public transport is just outside the house,if you walk out on to the road a minute from the house.tuk tuks and cabs are easily available.and so is the other public transport. trains and buses(if you are adventurous) are not too far away.buses are right around the corner and the train station is about ten minutes away.
...I would like to thank Aryan for being such a great host! Also the appartment is exactly as described & offers everything you need. It's definetely a comfortable place to stay. I will certainly book it again once I'm back in Mumbai :)
We have been welcomed like kings and queens at Aryan's place!
He really took godd care of us and our comfort! rare!
The place is excaltly as it's featured. Spaceful, comfortable and very clean. The location is convenient for it's easy to move from Juhu
We do wish to be back soon :-)
The apartment was exactly as advertised - clean, comfortable, and has all the amenities that one would require. Aryan was very responsive and accommodating given my very early check-in. Definitely value for money. I would stay here on every future trip to Mumbai!
Excellent location and cozy apartment.
The apartment was well furnished with all amenities as promised in the add and house notes.
The Vaid family (living downstairs) had put their best efforts to make our stay comfortable and hassle free.
We stayed at Aryan's apartment for 5 nights and he was a really great host. Aryan was very welcoming and offered to help us with anything we needed. The apartment was clean and as described. Thanks so much Aryan and hope to see you soon!
I stayed here for about six weeks beginning in December 2013. The amenities were exactly as described: spacious layout of the flat, nice living room, kitchen, laundry facilities, hot water, etc. The flat is clean, couch and bed are comfortable, and it has just about anything one would need for a long term stay. The location is nicely accessible to other north Mumbai suburbs and the train stations (i.e., 10 minutes to Santa Cruz Station, 20 minutes to Bandra depending on traffic) and rickshaw/taxi stands are very close. Juhu Beach is also a five minute walk away, which is very convenient. Unfortunately, there is only one decent restaurant within walking distance, I found myself traveling to Bandra relatively frequently for meals. There are a number of restaurants that deliver here if you are so inclined. Finally, this part of Juhu is along an airline flight path so there is some airplane noise. That said, I didn't notice it after the first day.
The apartment is in a convenient location, just 10 min to Khar and Bandra restaurants and nightlife. The place is fairly comfortable. As mentioned in the description, the kitchen is not equipped for cooking anything fancy but is fine for a simple breakfast or meal. You can easily order take out delivery. There are some small convenience type stores outside the complex. Aryan even provided a few basics like milk and bread for my arrival which was helpful.
Communication with the host was good and I would stay again here.
This is a beautiful apartment. It is furnished nicely and quite comfortable. There are two air conditioning units - one for the living room and one for the bedroom. This is very important in the heat of Mumbai! There is a washer for doing your laundry. Wifi worked perfectly.
The area is calm and quiet. It's situated in Juhu, about a 5-7 minute rickshaw ride from the Santa Cruz train station. If you're coming for a short stay and plan to tour downtown, it may be a bit far for your needs. If you're staying longer or not wanting to go downtown, it's perfect. There are two small stores at the entrance to the apartment complex where I was able to purchase necessities.
The apartment is on the third floor. The owner's mother lives directly below and provided someone to carry my luggage up/down the steps. She also arranged my taxi to the airport, told me where to get various things, and fed me twice :)
I had a great stay here.
Was a great comfortable stay. Apartment had everything you need and hospitality was fabulous. Would definitely stay there again on a next visit to INDIA.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
