O ovom smještaju

We stay in Pune and built Devrai Farm House as a get-away from the city crowd. It is not a *commercial* property, but more of a farm-house, a simple and humble place to live near nature. The house is a lovely place and we are sure you will love it.

Devrai Farm House (FAQ)
-------------------------------------------

o Where exactly is the farmhouse located? What are the nearby beaches?
The place comes before Kashid beach and Murud comes later. Kashid beach is ~10-12 mins and Murud 30-35 mins. Korlai beach is on the other side.
Borli beach is a 10 mins walk, but not recommended since it's not clean. Kashid and Korlai beach are better options. Murud and Nandgaon beaches are also not far away. Murud beach, Nagaon temple, Alibaug (and it's beaches), Birla Mandir are some of other nearby attractions.

o Is the place isolated/desolate? Are there people/houses nearby? Is there proper hygiene?
By no means is our place desolate like lots of other farmhouses. It is just off the main road, there are other bungalows nearby, caretaker stays on premises, bus-stop/rickshaw-stand/hotels/shops/ATM are 3 mins walk away. There is a hospital in Borli for minor problems. It's safe for seniors and children. Our caretaker ensures that the place remains spotless clean and extremely hygienic.

o Are the bungalow and cottages nearby?
Yes, both buildings are in the same plot along with a third building for the caretaker. Although the buildings are on the same plot, they are on two corners of the plot so that privacy is maintained but not too far so that it is possible for a large group to stay partly in the bungalow and partly in the cottages.

o Is there any provision of vegetarian/non-vegetarian food?
Yes. There are two options:
a) Home cooked food by the caretaker who is 24x7 on-premises. We will give you the caretaker's no after payment so that you can discuss the options and the rates with him before-hand.
We hold an FSSAI license so you can be assured that the food is hygienically cooked.
b) Hotels across the road: There are 3 hotels just 2 mins away. If required, the caretaker can get the food for you for a nominal delivery charge.
Option (a) is cheaper, option (b) is flexible.
Please note that food is @ actuals and the tariff covers only accommodation charges.

o Are meals included in the price?
No. The price covers only accommodation charges and all meals (including breakfast) are not included in the price.

o Is there a provision for A/C?
For the bungalow, A/Cs are installed in both bedrooms. A/C charges will be over and above the accommodation charges.
For the cottages, A/C are not yet installed and should be available soon.

o Is there an inverter backup? How long does it last?
For the bungalow, the inverter can support 3 tubes and 3 fans for 4+ hours. For the cottages, the inverter can support 2 tubes and 2 fans for 3+ hours. However, please note that if there is a power breakdown lasting more than the max. hours, even the inverter will not work. The A/Cs are not supported by the inverter.The A/Cs are also fitted with booster stabilizers so that they continue to function during low voltages.

o Is there a view of sea from the farmhouse?
Yes. There is a "Machaan" type gallery built on top of the other building that has parking @ bottom, caretaker's room and the Machaan on the top. You can see the hill on one side and the Borli beach sea on the other.
You can also view the sea from the terrace above the cottages.

o How big is the farm in terms of plantation?
The plot is around 12 gunthas and lush with mango, coconut, banana and other trees. So it's not huge but good enough to relax!

o Is proper drinking water available?
Filtered water (Aquaguard UV filter) is available. In addition, we give you 5 bottles (2 bottles for cottages) every day. If you do not want to take risks (especially for children), bottled water can also be purchased from the caretaker or nearby hotels.

o Is hot water available for bathing?
Yes, that is a necessity! There are 25 liter storage electric geysers in both cottages. In sync with the natural theme, we have installed a wood boiler in the bungalow. For the bungalow, one will need to inform the caretaker in advance so that he can start the wood boiler.

o Is safe parking facility available?
Yes, you can park your vehicle(s) safely inside the gated plot.

o What are the activities available (for children)?
As mentioned in the ad, this place is for a leisurely stay in the country side and not an activity center. We have a garden with swings, a wave slide, water pad and hammock for children.

o How is the network connectivity?
Unfortunately except for Idea, other networks have poor connectivity. BSNL may work at times.

o Can we use the kitchen in the bungalow?
As a rule, we allow use of the kitchen only for emergency purposes. Food arrangements are separately handled by the caretaker You are welcome to use the refrigerator.
For requirements like milk/tea for children you can inform the caretaker accordingly.

o What are the checkin/checkout timings?
Check-in is at 1 PM and check-out at 11 AM. We follow a flexible check-in/out policy except for peak seasons.

Me and my friends Recently visited Kashid and stayed at Devrai farm house. The location mentioned on the app is perfect and it is very easy to locate the place. It was amazing experience to stay at this farm (URL HIDDEN) a beautiful & clean house with hall, dining area, kitchen , 2 bed rooms other then this they have a garden area with table, swing, hammock. Care taker of the house is really good. Quick response of Host Shravani is appreciable. Do visit this place :)

Thanks for your response. I have not missed a single call or sms from you and have responded as fast even though I was traveling on that day. I have sent you directions, pre-travel updates via SMS, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and email. Although you had requested an instant reservation, I had sent a detailed FAQ and asked for explicit confirmation before accepting your reservation so that we did not set any false expectations. Although we find your comment about our response and reachability harsh and unacceptable, the comment about the caretaker is entirely understood. When the caretaker could not deliver home cooked food as per your requirements because of a tiff between him and his wife, I got it done through another person. Although the food arrangements are handled entirely by the caretaker, we should have handled this in a much better way. Anyways, we are replacing the caretaker this week because of earlier complaints about cleanliness.

This was the complete disaster, this was our first interaction on airbnb and didn't expected such a mess. We reached at this place at 1 pm on 27 may. The bungalow was neat and clean. We spent the day on kashid beach, had a dinner at the bunglow. At around 11 pm electricity went off and inverter kicked in. Only 2 fans and tube lights were running and AC went off. After an hour inverter went down and we also lost the fans and tube lights. We tried to contact caretaker but he did not respond. There was no water and no electricity for the whole night. The entire bunglow was heating like a boiler as it was the month of may, some of us spent the night in outside garden and others in Car where we could cool down for some time. Not a single person could sleep for the whole night. We had to get the water from outside by ourselves in the morning to get fresh. And no local person offered for the help. After surviving this disaster, when we complained this to the owner, his argument was that we should have used water more carefully and what he could have done for the electricity part. We were not there for whole day and used water only in the evening to get fresh. If this guys don't have even this much of water storage and backups for the electricity then such places should not be listed on the Airbnb in the first place. We asked the owner to visit the place before we leave in the morning to have a look at the situation but he denied. After some time I got a call from owner, he said that he checked the situation with care taker and he is going to refund the 50 percent amount for the electricity and water inconvenience. We felt that this guy has some proffessionalism left towards the business he is running and we left the place with the thought that not all the money was Wasted. After returning I followed up with owner for the refund but he texted me back that he need to have a word with me abt our abusing behaviour with care taker. I called him back multiple times but he did not respond. What I couldn't understand is that, before leaving the place owner himself assured us that he has checked the situation with care taker and will refund the 50 percent amnt and care taker did not complained about our behaviour that time. I mean who suffered for whole night care taker or my group ? And how this justifies not refunding the amount for water and electricity inconvenience? I waited for a week and put this review. I hope no one should go through such a mess, this guys won't understand that it's not just abt the money. It takes lot of efforts to gather everyone and executive such picnics for all working professionals....

I received a call at 9AM IST on 28 May 17 from Mr. Rohan. He was extremely upset and the complaints mentioned were: 1. No electricity during the night There was no electricity. Some people in the group had to sleep in the car because of the heat and humidity. What happened: There was an electrical breakdown in the entire region around Kashid for almost the entire night (12+ hours). The inverter ran out after 3+ hours. We have this clause specifically mentioned in our receipt. See below. Inverter backup works for only three hours for 3 tubes and 3 fans in case of a continuous power breakdown. Although we have installed booster A/C stabilizers, the A/Cs may not function for extremely low voltages. 2. No water in the morning There was a water shortage in the morning. What happened: We had ordered water tankers at night itself but the overhead tank could not be filled because of electricity problems. This is our mistake i.e. we could have filled the overhead tankers beforehand. 3. The caretaker did not pick up the call when they called around 11:30-12 AM at night. What happened: The caretaker had knocked the door multiple times around 9 PM but still the door was not opened. Considering that there were ladies in the house and the men were heavily under the influence of alcohol she did not call them. They could have called us directly but did not because they thought it was too late in the night to call us. Considering the inconvenience (even when only (2) above which can be directly attributed to us), I had offered to refund part of the accommodation charges. However, after getting further detailed feedback (see below) from our caretaker, I have escalated this to AirBnb to report the following unacceptable behavior. 1. Rude behavior Foul language (multiple abusive words) for us as reported by our caretaker although we have not uttered a single bad and/or unprofessional word. This happened after our telephonic discussion, where I had specifically asked Mr. Rohan to focus on the problems they faced and how we could mitigate those using the *proper* language. I had specifically told him that we could have attempted to solve the problem had he called us directly at night. 2. Started AC even when the booking was for nonAC. This amounts to cheating and was discovered by the caretaker in the morning. This also may be the reason that they did not allow the caretaker in at 9 PM in the evening.

A cosy and homely place.The garden had mango laden tree, under the shade of which is the seating arrangement. We enjoyed excellent family time. The bunglow is located just 15 mins drive from kashid beach and at 1hr drive is janjira fort,murud beach.We could comfortably see all the places. The hosts were very helpful and guided us well. Mr Vinayak Gadkari personally met us and inquired about our stay.

Rahul and his family were one of the most, most adapting, adjusting guests we have seen. There was a problem with one of the ACs and he called me up to discuss the problem and even the possible solutions! I have not seen many guests making an effort to solve the problem since (rightly) the problem was ours. I offered him a refund but he was reluctant to take that. There was another incident where he mis-placed his mobile in the garden and it was picked up by some workers visiting nearby. Even here Rahul was extremely gentle in voicing out his problem to me since I was there on the site. This ended on a good note since we luckily managed to retrieve it back. I also had a good chat with his family. We really hope that they do visit us again in the near future.

This is seriously one of the best Airbnb experiences I've had. Photos didn't even do the place justice -- it is big and spacious and airy; the land surrounding the bungalow is so wonderful to wake up to, eat your breakfast, sit on the swings or the hammocks. This was an ideal location for us -- we were a group of 10 on a retreat, looking to spend more time with one another but not really running around sightseeing. The food Shravani's staff cooks is really yummy, Maharashtran homecooked thali and really comforting. The whole staff is incredibly helpful and responsive. We were glad we had a Marathi speaker in the group; not all of them seemed as comfortable in Hindi and definitely not English.

Wow! Thanks a ton for your superb review, Sanjena. We will convey your feedback to the staff. Although teaching them English is a daunting task we will probably try it some time :-). Hope to see you and your friends soon! Sincere regards, Vinayak/Shravani Gadkari.

Nice Place to stay and relax for 2-3 families with kids. Property is well maintained. Close to kashed beach as well. One suggestion, please make sure you have the directions to this place well understood, there are multiple places with the name starting with Borli around this region.
Profil korisnika Shravani
Shravani odgovara:
Thanks for your super super generous feedback, Mohan. The extra super is for putting away the problems that you faced while locating the place. AirBnB shows the co-ordinates as Borli-Panchatan which is not correct and should be Borli-Mandla. We will get this rectified with AirBnB immediately and also sincerely apologize for the loss of time else you would have enjoyed the place a bit more. We will also ensure that your excellent suggestions are addressed by the time you visit us again. Thanks!

We are travel buffs who love to get away from the maddening city crowd (and !) whenever we get a chance. We built this farm house for the same purpose and are very happy with the way it has turned out. Apart from travel, we love reading books, swimming and chatting for hours together!
