Given great details on how to arrive at the apartment. Felt really welcomed and at home. The apartment is very spacious and airy, and it looks as good as the photos. The host and her beautiful daughter are really nice people and very helpful in therms of tips and to do's around the city.
Jay is a lovely host! Her family was so nice and welcoming, and very helpful with logistics of my trip. Truly great people and a perfect example of why airbnb has succeeded internationally thus far. Thank you Jay!
Superbe chambre! Surement la meilleure literie que vous rencontrerez pendant votre voyage en Inde! L appartement est charmant mais à usage des propriétaires uniquement. Les petits déjeuners, servi entre 8h30 et 9h sont délicieux, variés et copieux.
L appartement est idéalement situé.
Nous aurions juste aimé rencontrer Jay qui semble jouer une part importante dans le succès de cette location. Une prochaine fois peut être !
Encore merci pour tout!
Raph et Fred.
Everything great about Jay and her wonderful apartment has already been said and they are all true. Jay was very kind and patient to help us with the train tickets, checking of flights and booking of a taxi to get us to the airport. Her apartment is immaculate. It's beautiful and cosy and we were so very reluctant to leave it after spending 3 nights there. The breakfasts were so yummy! If you are thinking of staying in Pune, you will not regret staying at Jay's!
The room we stayed in was well lit and well appointed, stocked with good reads, drinking water, and tea-brewing facilities. The attached bathroom was a classy affair, with soap, dental kits and towels provided. Though we did not use it, laundry service was also available for a reasonable fee. Wi-Fi worked at a decent speed. The surrounding area is calm and serene, and it was an analog pleasure to wake up to the call of birds in the morning and watch the trees in the attached balcony. The main hall where we had our (included) continental breakfast demonstrated the high taste of our host with the beautiful décor and curios. The apartment is easily accessible via elevator.
Jay is a most erudite and accomplished host, and me being a sucker for great conversations, the highlight of our stay was the breakfast table talks my wife and I had with her. She was greatly communicative leading up to our stay, and most flexible and accommodating with our late arrival on New Year's night. One of the things I love most about Airbnb is the opportunity to meet interesting and inspirational people, and my inner social animal was definitely satisfied during this stay.
Thank you so much for a most pleasurable stay, Jay. I look forward to staying in touch and seeing you again soon!

About the Host, Jay
Life is too short to explore all the things I am interested in! Arts, crafts, design,travel, walking, people, spirituality, reading,music you name it I have something to do with it. Jill of all trades, for me every day is a new world, a new experience, a new opportunity to connect.
I like people who are interested in others and the world around them, enquiring minds and friendly feelings.
If you like Tolstoy, Queen and Vermeer, Arundhati Roy, Bhimsen Joshi and Sudhir Patwardhan, Greece, Italy, and Turkey, fresh baked bread, chicken curry, and waffles we will get on just fine!
