Interaction with Guests
Interaction can be as much as the guest desires. I understand and respect the need for privacy and quietness.
The neighborhood is above all friendly, calm and peaceful. There is no road noise, plenty of trees around to give it a cool comfortable feel. Park is just a few steps away.
Bus-stop and the Monorail are just a few steps away. There are auto "rickshaws" available all the time for a very economical way to get to nearby spots. Access to the freeway is quick to get to "town side" within 30 mins.
Few simple rules: No smoking, no alcohol on premises and mutual respect for privacy and quietness.
Le séjour à Mumbai s'est très bien passé et Mani est vraiment une personne très accueillante. La maison est bien située et reculée de la rue principale, au calme. La chambre est spacieuse et propre.
Je recommanderai à toute personne cherchant un logement bon marché et de qualité à Mumbai d'aller chez Mani.
Mani is the best host we had in India. Not only he was helpful and involved in every issue of our trip, but also it can be seen that inviting guest to his house makes him happy. He's very warm person. His place is situated in the middle of Chembur which we found our favourite district in Mumbai - cozy, beautiful and not crowded with tourists. Staying at his big house, filled with beautiful indian art is the best choice we could have made.
Mr. Mani is very friendly and welcoming. He came and stood in the main road to guide us to his place which was few yards away from the main road. He guided us with taxi bookings and suggested on our trip aswell. He offered us extended help and support during our stay. That place is really good and awsome. its very peaceful without any disturbance and very clean maintained.
After a long bus ride from Goa, we needed a good rest in Mumbai and that was what the Villa was waiting for. We didn’t realized it was his house till he appeared right in front of us (as he was watching us outside from his inside CCTV camera) once we got off from the TukTuk. Otherwise, we could have big deal to find the phone to call him to ask the direction as our Goa phone disconnected. He has such a nice house with huge room and balcony which easily could accommodate myself, my husband and our baby. He is very friendly and helpful on navigating different places in Mumbai megapolis.
Mani is such a lovely person who welcomed us warmly and took care of us for every little thing we asked for. He's such a nice and cultivated person.
The house is a bit difficult to find but Mani was waiting for us even late at night and the location is a bit far from interesting places in Mumbai but rickshaws and trains are there for reason right ;)
Even though the accommodation was basic, we slept very well in Mani's room but it was too much cluttered by different useless pieces of furniture that made it difficult to move around especially for the 3 old metallic beds that made the room look completely different from the nice picture on Airbnb. Maybe it was an effort to accommodate more people but it reduced the space and more than that, it was not as shown in the picture. I thing he could improve things by some housekeeping or at least comply with the promised description.
Wifi in the room was a real pain and we had to move to the hall to get some signal.
Overall, Mani's room was a good deal. Clean and cozy. Especially when you know that it's not easy to find clean and budget accommodations in Mumbai.
I would recommend it to fellow travelers and hope that Mani will improve few things.
Thanks again Mani. Take care of yourself
Mr Ahmed thank you .
The extra two single cots were for extended family , say for
Elder two kids should they join and which have helped in the past
And had I known and had you given a hint ,it was hindering a bit would have
Folded and shifted them away.
Mani ist ein hervorragender Gastgeber. Wir haben uns wie Zuhause gefühlt. Wir stimmen den vorangegangenen Bewertungen voll zu und würden beim nächsten Aufenthalt sofort wieder bei ihm wohnen.
Nous voila de retour de notre périple. Dernière étape Bombay avec un retour une nuit chez Mani. Mani est une personne remarquable qui est particulièrement attentionné avec ces hôtes. La maison est située dans le quartier de Chembur assez loin des quartiers touristiques de Mumbay mais la ville est immense. La solution du taxi n'est pas contraignante. La maison est typique et a beaucoup de charme. Pas mal de travaux à envisager mais cela lui donne du charme à l'indienne. La ville est trés chère pour se loger, chez Mani c'est une vraie bonne solution.
