Excellant location. Very close to main attraction in the center of Bangalore and yet quiet and pleasent neighbourhood.
Above these - both Vinnie and Navin was so helpfull. I just felt like a family member.
Very nice room and excellent location, very close to main places near MG road, and still very quite neighbourhood.
Above these - great hospitality. Just felt a family member. Highly recommended !
My stay here was wonderful! Vineeta was out of town, but Navin was very friendly and welcoming. He provided me with privacy, but also was welcoming to conversation and very helpful with ideas for planning my days. They are well traveled, and the conversations we had were very interesting. He makes a mean breakfast as well. The provided description is accurate. Wifi is good. The place is clean. Showers were warm. The bed was very comfortable. The surrounding neighborhood is also very nice. The apartment is located very near to several delicious restaurants and Cubbin Park, which is a fantastic place to wander. I would easily recommend this place to other travelers, and would definitely stay there again if back in Bangalore.
I contacted Vineeta for my daughter, sophie, who was travelling to india alone. Vinnie went above and beyond and picked her up from the airport even though her flight arrived late at night!
Sophie told me that Vinnie prepared an amazing breakfast each morning for her and she said that Vinnie and Navin were both lovely to her!
Vineeta and Navin are just two beautiful people that I had the privilege to meet during my stay at their place. Very warm host and made me feel like home. Their place is quite centrally located in Bangalore.
All and all, fantastic experience.
Thanks Vinnie and Navin. Looking forward to meet you guys soon.
Vineeta & Navin are kind, friendly hosts who have a wonderful spot in downtown Bangalore. Their place is very comfortable, an ideal central location with convenient access to the local sites, many within walking distance. It was a pleasure staying with them!
My stay at Vineeta & Navin's home was absolutely delightful. They are wonderful hosts! I arrived late into the night (around 11 PM). They waited up for me and were easily available by phone for my taxi driver to ensure that he took me to the right place. Upon my arrival, we chatted for a little less than an hour about my travels, their backgrounds and my plans for the following day in Bangalore. They had a few tourist books covering the city and we reviewed maps and strategies for me to get around. Breakfast the next morning was lovely and Vineeta was very amenable to my request for continental breakfast. I had a key to the apartment and to my room (although I felt very safe and did not feel the need to lock my bedroom door). Everything was clean and orderly. I had toiletries available to me as well as a blow dryer. I was flying out from Bangalore back to the US very late at night and Vineeta and Navin stayed awake again (my taxi came at midnight) to ensure that my transfer was seamless. I cannot say how much I appreciated them staying up to ensure that this was hassle free. They both speak amazing English (their vocabulary is likely more vast than mine and my only language is English) which was comforting to me as I found it challenging when I stayed anywhere in India where the hosts did not speak great English. While staying in their home, I felt like I was just visiting with old friends I had known for years. You are crazy if you come to Bangalore and do not stay with them. The location is also fabulous. Very close to MG Road - completely within walking distance!
Welcome to our home! Navin is an entrepreneur, excited about start ups and new ventures. Vinnie is a creative consultant. We love to meet and interact with travelers, swap stories, share experiences and hopefully, some laughs. We live in the town centre, walking distance from a host of pubs and eateries. For early risers, the beautiful Cubbon park is just a couple of minutes' jog away. Let us know what you like to do, and we'll be happy to help you get the best out of bangalore.
