I personally prefer to have calm stay and feel warm at a place I am visiting. Well done place and very neat & tidy, would definetly visit again with out a doubt. Hosts are very warm, welcoming and helpful. They would also recommend you things if you have any preferences about food or places to visit. 5 star for sure

I am so appreciative that there exists a place that values customer service with so much vigour. The property was well maintained and very clean. Vipin and his son were phenomenal hosts, helped us make our Kolhapur experience a huge success. From making our itinerary , to recommending us places to visit, to what local cuisines to try, and where to find them. They were just a phone call away ; I never sensed any irritation or displeasure in their voice even after calling them for the 6th time in the same evening. They were always very warm. I look forward to next time. It is refreshing to see family values still remain at the forefront. It is an example of how business should be done and is a lost art. Keep up the great work. Keep doing this and you’ve made a customer for life.

The stay at this property was flawless. Not only was the property was well maintained, Vipin was always available if and when needed, and i was happy to note that, we didn't need to reach out to anyone much because everything was spic and span. The beds were comfortable and the view was lovely. All in all, it was absolutely worth the bucks. Thank you for the lovely experience!

We had an amazing stay. Totally worth it. The building might be a bit old , but the interiors have been done very nicely. Owners are very responsive and co-operative. It's very Homely and comfortable. Everything was kept very thoughtfully. Will surely recommend a stop here.

Going by the reviews on tripadvisor and the pictures, i contacted the owner Vipin to book the 1 bhk but it wasnt available hence we booked the 2bhk which is on the first floor of the same old building. Crappy place with no hospitality or service! Since i was carrying my pet pug, i was looking at pet friendly accommodations. To my surprise this place was such a downer. We are a well traveled family and have stayed in the best accommodations, i must say we were totally disappointed. its going to be a long feedback so please read carefully and then take a call. We traveled from Bangalore and arrived at this old building in a pretty posh area and were greeted by the security's wife Kausalya who was rude in behaviour on the first day but kind of mellowed down. Vipin the owner of the flat called her to give us the keys. Seeing the building itself was quite a put-off. After 11 hrs of travel, we just wanted a place to settle down rather than go hunting for a place as we were there for 2 days for a family event and needed a place just to sleep. > We walk into the flat which is on the first floor which smelled damp and all the room fresheners had run out. Luckily we carried our own room fresheners and sanitizers (oh yes we went prepared as we were ready for surprises, but not like the ones we had). > a 2bhk flat if the owners had put in the effort to maintain it and come and check the place regularly, it would be worth paying every penny. The sofas were ripped, there were lizards and roaches which we were trying to chase, Jesus. Old sofas so low that elders and people with knee issues would need support to get up. Walls were damp and you can see paint chipped off in many places. > The mat at the entry of the house smelled of dog pee (probably of the previous guests who were there with a pet). > old looking bedsheets which made me think twice to use so borrowed a few bedsheets from my aunt, and i had carried enough of pillow covers. Forget using the towels kept for guests ;-) > thank heavens the bathroom looked clean, as that was our main concern but the water was brownish in colour and the same with the filter water, one would never dare drink that water. The bathroom had used bottles of shampoo and other liquids which we thought were kept for the new guests. Hygiene and cleanliness is something these people had overlooked during these covid times. I had already pre-paid them a deposit and we did not have a choice but to stay in the place for 2 days, never to visit such a place again. People please research well and take a call, dont go by the pictures posted on social media especially on air bnb. Except for the property being pet friendly nothing seemed attracted about the Garden Homes which is no where close to Garden homes. I always give good feedback but this is an honest feedback for fellow travelers visiting kolhapur, the owner or his son weren't courteous enough to come and check on us or respond to our feedback, hope they pay attention to these details. Instead they were insisting us on paying the remaining amount second day of our stay because I'm sure they knew that people will check out looking at the place. They were more greedy for the money than hospitality and even when i shared the feedback on whatsapp with the pictures, the owner sends me his bank details for payment. Crappy hospitality :-)

Watchman is a nepali lady & has a typical accent,very humble to speak too lizard could be a intruder if guests are not careful to keep the window nets secure, sofas are very well maintained, towels are laundry washed on top priority, so are the linen & all ,about roaches not one complain in 15 years, called guests frequently though in family medical emergency,our representative called the guests on all 3 days of their stay & looked after all the order & demands, Our properties are top notch, among the best , kindly chk all the reviews on all good reputed booking platforms, like booking.com ,airbnb,& more,not one review,reads a negative in last 10 years, need not say more then. Payment was not deposited even after chk in on the first day, on demand on second day, reasons were put forward for the delay & paid us only at the time of chk out after 3 nights stay My only concern why they did not chk out early if the stay was not satisfactory aftet 1 night , & we werent paid for their entire stay of 3 nights ....so

We stayed here for just one night and we love this place. It is the pent house in the 6th floor with a private garden and bath tub in the terrace. The kitchen is fully equipped. The provide us milk to prepare coffee. Both the bed rooms are spacious, bath attached and highly ventilated with a private garden. The property is quite decent. Mr Vipin is very cooperative and helped me even to find a better restaurant in Kolhapur. I just called from Bangalore for the query and he blocked the property for us. We need an extra mattress and he provided with a nominal charge. The overall experience is great. One suggestion: The couch in the hall as well the curtains needs to be replaced as they are looking pathetic. I suggest them to provide a complement breakfast as the charges

We stopped over here on our way to Goa. Took the 1BHK on the top floor. The interiors are done by a nature enthusiast as there is a beautiful lush garden on the terrace. Wonderfully landscaped with a hot tub open to the sky right on the terrace. Interiors are also very tastefully done. No comfort has been overlooked. The kitchen enough utensils, cutlery for two-three people. TV, fridge, microwave in working condition. Dining table has some fruits and snacks but they are chargeable. I feel at the cost, they can probably throw that in for free. Liked the special tea stuff given - lemon grass, cinnamon etc and a 2 milk small packs at no additional charge which was much appreciated. Bathroom has some interesting pebbles decor and an indoor plant right next to shower. The owner threw in the breakfast complimentary even though it was not part of the deal. Our dog was allowed and he absolutely loved the outdoorsy feel of the place. Parking is provided at the ground floor of the apartment complex. We reached late at night but the owner was present to receive us. Its a lovely setup. Please make sure you are there to watch the sunset and sunrise something we sorely missed. A bit expensive and maybe more apt for a bigger group.

Ok, to start with we were completely taken by surprise by this place as we never expected something like this to be available in Kolhapur. The homes (I would rather not use the term flats or rooms) are perfect in every aspect. And they are beautiful. The interiors are not only picturesque but also practical at the same time. Every detail for the comfort of guests is taken care of. The owner Mr. Vipin Kharbanda is very helpful and cooperative without being intrusive. The staff, too is very sweet and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone planning to come to Kolhapur with family or friends. Very reasonably priced. It is a much better deal than any hotel you can find here. I am already planning to come back here while writing this review. I doubt I'll ever be able to stay at a hotel after this.

We stayed here for just 1 day, since we were driving from Goa to Bombay. The property we stayed is located on the 7th floor and it's was a flat with a terrace garden. The room consist of a living room and a bedroom with a well designed bathroom and the crowning glory was the garden outside surrounding the living room on 3 sides. Mr.Vipin does a great job looking after the property and was always a phone call away for any requirements. The kitchen is well equipped and you can have a dinner or breakfast sitting out on the terrace facing the faraway mountains. The two things need attention is the mosquito metal nets, which are torn at some location and hence we ended up getting bitten just a bit. The second issue is a total absence of internet. Overall a great property.
