The apartment is a 30 minute drive from the domestic airport and 45 minutes from the international airport. It is also very close to the Bandra-Worli Sea Link (BWSL) which takes you to South Bombay. It is a cable-stayed bridge with pre-stressed concrete viaduct approaches, which links Bandra and the western suburbs with Worli and central Mumbai. The Sea Link reduces travel time between Bandra and Worli from 45–60 minutes to 7 minutes.
The Bandstand Promenade is a kilometer long walkway along the sea. Less than a decade old, it is simultaneously a popular hang out spot and a jogging track, a park and also a lovers point. Visible along the promenade are expensive bungalows and flats, some of which belong to Bollywood movie stars like Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, John Abraham, Farhan Akhtar, Shabana Azmi, Rekha, Katrina Kaif among others.
Bandra Fort is located right at the end of road adjacent to our house. It was built by the Portuguese in 1640 as a watchtower overlooking Mahim Bay, the Arabian Sea and the southern island of Mahim. Castella de Aguada has been featured in several Hindi films, such as Dil Chahta Hai, Buddha Mil Gaya, Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na and Robot.
We have a few house rules to follow. They will help us in maintaining the place and help you in having an enjoyable stay:
1. Please keep the noise levels low, especially after 10 pm. We have nice neighbors and want to keep it that way.
2. No smoking in the house, except in the balcony.
3. Our upholstery is white so please be careful not to stain it. Please refrain from eating on the sofas.
4. You can use the toiletries etc that are in the house. We also have guest towels available to save you the hassle of carrying your own.
5. While the apartment is fully airconditioned, we urge you to be mindful of leaving airconditioning on when you are not in the apartment. You can help us save the environment and save costs.
6. The house has a biometric lock. The apartment can be accessed with a 6 digit code that you will be given upon reaching the premises.
Ashwin's mother, Shakun, was unusually helpful to us during our stay. She is more than you can hope for!
The apartment is like on the pictures, except maybe that the bathrooms are smaller and the apt a little less clean.
Ashwin and his mother were wonderfully responsive and hospitable hosts. The home was immaculate and just as pictured and the location was perfect. It was situated right next door to a 5 star hotel which made for easy meals! Highly recommended!
I loved our stay in this beautiful apartment. It is in a lovely, quiet location, just minutes from the Bandstand Promenade. The apartment is just as it appears in the photos. The host (Ashwin's mother) was so kind and helpful throughout our stay. I definitely hope to stay here again on future trips to Mumbai!
Online pictures are exactly what the apartment looks like in reality. Location off Bandstand is highly convenient and the host was always available to answer any questions at all times. The apartment is self-sufficient and very quiet and the fact that they have a maid that comes by once a day is an incredibly perk. I'd definitely return if an opportunity presented itself.
We felt very relaxed and happy in this clean and comfortable apartment in a 'quiet' part of Mumbai. Parents of owner live nearby and can always be at help which wasn't necessary at all. So much nicer than a hotel!
I am a professional working in Singapore but travel across the world and often in China, UAE, Germany and the US. I grew up in Mumbai and know the city very well. I have a wife and two young kids and we use this house often as our vacation home.
