Raj is a nice host. He was able to assist us about our queries on our itinerary requirements. He also helped booked an airport transfer for us. The week we arrived it is the start of the monsoon season for mumbai. He gladly lent us an umbrella for our convinience.
As my first time travel to Mumbai, I had a great time staying in Raj's home and exploring the city. The biggest advantages for me is the location of the house: In such an unacceptable weather in May&June, I am able to go out for activities and come back for taking shower several times because of the wonderful location: Only 5mins walking to the train station with a great Veg restaurant. Thanks Raj.
Pros: Raj runs this place very professionally Dealing with him feels like you are dealing with a reputed hotel top management. He is extremely courteous, thoughtful , caring and non-intrusive. The place itself is designed in a way that you get the privacy and convenience of a hotel room and the benefits of a PG.Never met any of his family folks during the stay so you can imagine how private and non-intrusive it is. Room is on the ground (website hidden) has a separate outside entrance so you can enter/exit at your convenience at late nights without disturbing the host.The room has a connecting door to his flat so you can knock anytime if you need anything.He is also reachable on phone/sms/whatsapp for any requests.Raj will provide you keys for our outside door. The room is fully self (website hidden) has an LED TV (I never watched) ,AC and an attached private toilet and bath fitted with instant geyser and shower.Raj will provide toiletries and towels on request. Wifi is extremely fast and has a good range and is 24(website hidden) works outside on the road as well.Helpful if you book an Uber and want to track the driver. Extremely tasty veg and non-veg home-made meals can be ordered in advance (charged extra, (website hidden). 150-200 per meal) .Mangoes (during season) in most meals including breakfast ,eggs of your choice for breakfast and got shrimps curry and fried Mandeli (Anchovy) in one meal. The room has two single beds and comfortable pillows. There is a two door wardrobe with keys to store your stuff. I guess there is a small bookshelf as well with books but I dint check. Cons: Though the area is quiet , its situated near the airport so you will have planes landing and taking off frequently especially at nights. Didn't bother me at all since I am used to staying in a noisy part of the city but could bother you if you are used to extremely quiet areas. The place is located on a narrow one way road where folks drive both ways (illegally) so it becomes extremely congested during peak hours.I had to cancel Uber twice since the driver was stuck in traffic and couldn't reach me on time.Luckily Auto-rickshaws are a plenty on the road and being small can easily navigate on the narrow road and I use to get those easily. The paint in the room was peeling off. Didn't bother me .Not sure if that bothers you. If you need cold drinking water , ensure that you communicate your preference in advance since Raj's family doesn't drink cold water and may not have it readily. Since its on the ground floor, mosquitoes can be a nuisance but Raj provided me a repellent when I pointed out and that took care of things. The towels provided by Raj may not be to your liking.They are extremely thin and aren't soak friendly.Advisable to bring your own. No safe in the room so don't bring along...
Quiet neighbourhood, neet place and very helpful and kind host. The location is very close to train station, which makes it easy to go any place in Mumbai. Recommended!
Raj and his wife were great hosts, I felt very welcome at their house.
Raj was even so kind and drove me to the airport with his scooter!
The room is simple but fine if you stay for a few nights and want to avoid standardized hotels. The neighborhood is lovely and close to the train/bus station. During the day/evening it can get quite noisy because of airplanes coming to/from the airport.
Last but not least, I can recommend the breakfast, especially the dosas and coconut chutney!
The apartment was nice and clean. For the reason we booked this, it was a good place to stay. The owner and his wife were friendly people and their hospitality was great. They want to do many things for us and filtered water they gave in a minute. The neighbourhood is quiet, only the Airport is close by. At times you can hear the planes. Many shops and fruitstalls you can find in the neighbourhood. From this place it is is easy to start your Mumbai sightseeings.
Friendly and accommodating

About the Host, Raj
Perhaps, the one thing that is going to take you by surprise and also deeply touch you on your India tour is the warm hospitality of Indians. A ready smile on the face, always willing to go out of the way to help somebody, exuding genuine happiness upon meeting a person - these are some of the common traits you will find in maximum Indians. Service, in our Indian ethos is the ultimate duty -SEVA PARMA DHARMA. So it's understandable why the tourists visiting India want to come back again & again.
Having grown-up in a traditional Hindu Joint Family system prevalent in India since ancient times, I like to meet people from different parts of the world especially from different cultural back ground.
I have graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Bombay University and after serving for 14 years in project engineering I started this ‘Incredible India Homestay - Bed & Breakfast’ Establishment in our part of the world in the year 2003.
