More information The space Experience the feeling of living in a home with access to the rooftop to relax especially in the early morning or evening hours. It is not just a cookie cutter modern flat in a crowded multi storied building with a doorman and elevator. If you have children they would love to play in the roof. The fully renovated 2nd floor upscale living place in my ancestral home meets the need of a standard US household with large refrigerator, wall oven, dishwasher, glass cook top, induction stove, microwave, Reverse Osmosis [RO] Water filtration system, foreman grill, coffee maker, electric kettle, blender, toaster, dishes/silverwares/pots & pans. It has adequate size AC [a rarity in most vacation rentals], & fans in all rooms. Unlike other homes, hot water is available even in kitchen. However, the most unique feature of my flat is that it fits the need of varying types of groups. For example, if you are a family of 3 couples and 4 teenager children each couple could have their own private bedroom and the teenagers could have fun in their own 4 single beds in the second bedroom. If you are 4 business traveler want to enjoy having breakfast together but have privacy at night, you could have that too. The family room and the living room has comfortable sofa beds and door for privacy and can easily be used as a bedroom at night. A charcol BBQ pit on the rooftop is another unique feature of my home. The open space in the ground with two large mango trees [you can pick mangoes from the kitchen window in early summer] is not something you will find in a multi storied apartment building. The roof makes my place unique and it is highly unlikely that you would find a place exactly like this at this price range in any other vacation rental in Kolkata. According to the Kolkata municipal corporation's latest regulation my neighborhood is categorized as having the second highest property tax rate in Kolkata out of the six tax zones. Another uniqueness is that the house is separated from the main street by a private driveway[about 90']. This makes it quieter than most houses in the neighborhood. The main uniqueness is, however, the flexibility that you don't need to get any management or board's permission to host a small party on the rooftop. just let me know ahead of time and I will arrange for tables, chairs even fans & extra water supply with an additional charge. Within 6-20 minutes walk in diff directions you could go to shopping areas [e.g., Gariahat & Lake market], Lake, Kalighat, Rashbehari Ave, Hazra Road, nice resturants, public transportation, movies; Three famous parks [deshpriya park, triangular park, madox square] are within 5-7 min walk. To provide good water pressure in the shower head a pressure pump has been installed. Unlike many houses equipment such as air conditioners are of adequate size to ensure true comfort during hot days. Complimentary Sheets, towels, blankets & high speed exclusive wireless internet access provided [Pl remember to ask for password upon check in]. More

Interaction with guests
I am an avid traveler in India and abroad. When in Kolkata, I would try my best to help you with anything that you ask for. If I am not there during your stay my caretaker will ensure that your stay goes smoothly. At an additional charge and prior arrangement, you could use my 5 seater car with a driver. However, our interactions with the guests could be as much or as little as the guests prefer. We respect our guests' privacy. As a super host for my US home I provided many amenities in my Calcutta home, which are basic in USA but nonexistent in most listings in this site. Foreigners and NRIs will find most amenities they are used to.

About the neighbourhood
Newer buildings, wider streets, less congestion, more public transportation. More western style shops, malls and restaurants Recommended for Western and Medical tourists. Several good hospitals comparable to US standard, Tollywood and major attractions are located in this zone. Salt Lake: developed after independence. Naturally buildings are newer, roads are wider and planned. Less congestion But those may not be all good for tourists without car. Some streets look deserted after 9 p.m. Good for Business travelers especially in IT sector. Most homeowners have car/s. Taxis refuse to go after 9 P.M. as they cannot envision return fare. Getting street direction from locals after 9 P.M is problematic.
Getting around
For various reasons public transportation is inadequate or nonexistent in some neighborhood which otherwise can be considered very desirable. For example public transportation in Salt Lake or New Town are scarce or nonexistent. Most home owners in these areas have their own cars and therefore, Taxis do not want to go to these areas after 9 P.m. as in their own estimate they cannot get return passengers. These areas are most advantageous for business travelers with rented cars paid by the company and the traveler is not keen to mingle with locals. Transportation cost and time to most tourist attractions from these areas are much more than houses in proper Calcutta.
