Hello - I'm Mandy! I've lived in different countries and have been, at various times in my life, a journalist, designer, management professional, academic and entrepreneur (a la Albert Camus, living life in all its intensity and variety, and so....!). I'm also a greenie and have a little organic urban farm on my terrace in Mumbai. Other than that, I enjoy travel, the good life, great music, soul-stirring movies, awesome literature and inspiring company (the last thing is the reason I've been an airbnb host since 2005).
I have homes in India and the US, so catch me wherever...and know that even if I'm not home when you visit, there would be a reliable person hosting for me. My homes are clean, comfortable and conveniently located - four listings in Mumbai (same location - good for group reservations) and two in upstate NY (same location).
IMPORTANT: Please see photos, descriptions, and previous guest reviews before contacting me, to save our time. Also, know that I may simply not respond if:
a) you have a blank profile
b) you seem to be email bombing many hosts to get the cheapest deal
c) you are vague about your purpose of visit, have no verifications or reviews - in short, you are an unknown entity to me, and then expect me to rendezvous with you to show you my home before you make a reservation :-)
That having been said, I'm glad to answer GENUINE inquiries from GOOD FOLKS! And if you end up being my guest, will gladly go out of my way to make your stay a GREAT experience :-)
