The neighborhood

This is one of the quieter street you can find in Chennai, since there is no reason for traffic to flow thru' here. The condo itself is the escape from all the noise, traffic, chaos and excitement of the city.
Everything is available within walking distance- groceries, food, restaurants, take away/delivery, coffee bars, beach, salon/spa etc.

Getting around

Auto rickshaws, call taxis (public buses, if you want the experience) are all a phone call away.

This is a great location, in a great part of the city. Right near the ocean (though the beach beyond the nearby temple is mainly used as a toilet in the morning) and walking distance to the amenities of Elliot's Beach and Besant Nagar, and right next to a very nice park. It's a calm and quiet area, which is great if you have small kids. The apartment building is well maintained, and easy to get to with autos and cabs. The apartment is spacious (two full bathrooms and bedrooms, a big furnished kitchen and living area), and has a great view. The balcony is very nice. (However, if you are running the A/C in the main room then it is incredibly hot, since the exhaust from the A/C spits right out onto you.) The washing machine, fridge, and stove are all very useful, and well functioning. These made the stay very pleasant. That said, the apartment seems to have seen better days. Some of the metal fixtures are beginning to rust, as are some of the metal plates and cutlery. There is a bit of water(?) damage on some of the walls. The bathroom pipe/nozzle in one of the bathrooms drips. The kitchen sink got backed up and began to leak onto the floor (this was promptly fixed within the afternoon by the property manager). The water can developed algae (twice!), indicating that it hadn't been cleaned or replaced recently enough (or cleaned well enough). The air conditioner in the second bedroom was very old, very noisy, and none of its settings could changed (it was either on or off), and it could barely keep up. The air conditioner in the main room was broken for most of our stay there. And while the property manager did his best to have it fixed as quickly as possible (twice - first the compressor broke, then some of the wiring had to be replaced), my sense is that it has to be replaced. Overall this is a great place in a great neighborhood, and we had a great stay, though hopefully the above issues will be fixed for future tenants.

The flat has a great view and is in a nice neighbourhood. We enjoyed our stay here. That being said we have some minor issues which could be better like cleaning of appliances and faucets.the Internet did not work for a couple of days but in the end restarting the router solved the problem. We would be happy to stay again.

Mani made arrangements for someone to let me in...provided details about the neighborhood and gave a heads up on where to eat and find things. It was all very nice. The basics were there for cooking and the ac kept the place cool in the 100 degree heat. Nice and homey 3rd floor apt. We enjoyed it. The Beach was not accessible from the property that I could see. We had to walk down a way to get around the wall. I think the walls were necessary to keep beach dwellers away. The view was as seen and was good for people watching. Fishermen and locals were active in the area and it gave good insight into the local customs and activities. I felt very safe in the neighborhood and we often went out after dark to get food etc.

Away from the noise and hectic city life, Mani’s home was just what we needed. Although it was in the middle of a hot sticky Chennai summer, we found it to be the perfect refuge (with AC!). We had a wonderful stay and were so appreciative of the kind and expeditious help of Mr. Narayanan, the property manager. Any need, question or problem that arose was quickly resolved. The pictures were very accurate and we found the kitchen stocked with all the necessities of a western or Indian kitchen. Mani’s home is on a lovely street with a full canopy of trees that provides a tranquil shade to the area. Every morning was well spent resting on the oonjal (swing), having South Indian filter coffee and watching one of the best sunrises the area has to offer. The beach is always alive with activity; you can see boats going out in the morning and cricket being played each evening. Within walking distance, there are a number of great restaurants and shops, Mani even pointed us to a few of his favorites. Next time we are back in Chennai, we’ll be certain to stay here again!

we had a great stay in the beachfront condo. It is extremely quiet and with a fresh breeze from the see. Mani was very friendly, helpful and accurate in responding to inquiries. The fridge was filled with coffee, fruit and milk for the first morning and the bathrooms contained shampoo etc. the neighbors were also very friendly for a chat.

Ideally located apartment with a fully equipped kitchen, 2 large bedrooms and bathrooms, everything was perfectly clean, fresh sheets and towels, fans in all rooms. It was absolutely perfect for our stay in Chennai with our 18 months kid and a friend. Mani's team on the ground has been helpful, esp. in organizing airport pick-up with key delivery. We've considered different solutions for our stay (incl. expensive hotels) and were delighted with this apartment. The sea view from the balcony is amazing, the people in the flat were very nice, there are nice things to do / see in walking distance incl. a famous temple by the sea, a church, some place for shopping such as Fabindia and a Nilgiri supermarket where you can find everything you need, Eliot's promenade...i absolutely recommend the place for a stay in Chennai!!
