Hi there, I'm Mandy - never-say-die globe trotter and inveterate rolling stone - former journalist, designer, management professional, academic and entrepreneur - to name a few :-) I'm also a greenie, and have a little organic farm on my terrace in Mumbai that keeps me grounded when I'm not traveling! Besides travel, I enjoy the good life, great music, soul-stirring movies, awesome literature and inspiring company - the last item being the reason I've been an airbnb host since 2009 :-)
I have homes in India and the US, so catch me wherever...and know that even if I'm not home when you visit, I'd have a reliable and friendly person hosting for me. My homes are clean, comfortable and conveniently located - five 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 begin a price war
c) you have no introductions, verifications or reviews, are quite mysterious about your purpose of visit, but still want me to rendezvous with you somewhere and take you - a complete and utter stranger - back to my home for a viewing of the room :-)
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 :-)
