Two sides of our house—oolala—face the beautiful Lake Swaroop/Rang Sagar. Your private bedroom—the White Room—has west-facing lake-view windows, from which you can see breathtaking sunsets every night, feel the desert wind, and soak up the lakeside ambience, especially during wedding season. The feeling you get is the best Udaipur has to offer.

Your room is on the first floor (steps) and has a locked door, king-sized bed, locked closet, cable TV, and private bathroom.

The space
Udaipur is world-famous as THE location for a quintessential North Indian wedding experience. Our house, named "oolala," is perfect for sophisticated guests—Indian + foreign tourists, honeymooners, business travelers, and people who want a purely Udaipur/Rajasthani experience on the lake. During wedding season, this includes “monsoon wedding” processions on many streets throughout the city, fireworks over the lake, and beautiful symphonies of temple bells—all against the backdrop of peaceful Udaipur lakes.


How is oolala different from other Airbnbs? It’s quintessential Udaipur:

• oolala is YOUR lake house in Udaipur, Rajasthan: Two sides of this red house face the lake; it’s right on the edge of the lake, touching the water. You can’t get any closer than that. Every room in our house has lake-facing views (except the office and two of the bathrooms). From the rooftop terrace, you have 360-views of the lake and Udaipur + the wildlife living on a small island nearby (ducks, eagles, parrots, and many other types of birds). Coupled with that, oolala is in a vibrant neighborhood right in the center of Udaipur within walking distance of the most popular tourist attractions.

• oolala is an old, Indian-style house: It has gorgeous paintings of village folk art + traditional lights throughout the house. The furniture and décor was handcrafted by Rajasthani artisans, and the paintings were painted by Udaipur artists. Everything you experience in this house is sophisticated + pure Rajasthan. It’s truly one-of-a-kind.

• oolala is a true Airbnb house: It’s not a hotel masquerading as an Airbnb. Because of that, your stay is in a *house,* with all the benefits that provides. One of which is the homemade dinner service we offer (for an additional charge): Delicious, vegetarian food prepared hygienically and with love by me (Lovely, the wife in the husband-wife hosting duo) or my sweet mother-in-law who is an experienced home cook.

• Manish, the house caretaker + cleaner also lives at oolala and is at your disposal 24/7. Although his English is minimal, he understands universal body language. :)

• We rent four private bedrooms on Airbnb, so you can easily interact as much or little as you want with other travelers in all oolala’s common areas—kitchen, dining room, sitting room (with a lake-facing balcony), office, and beautiful rooftop terrace with a 360-view of central Udaipur and the lakes.


Three private bedrooms in oolala (all have lake views + max of two guests in each room):
• Green Room [this listing, your room is the only bedroom in the house with a balcony]
• Blue Room [the largest bedroom in the house]
• White Room [the coziest bedroom + on the first floor of the house]
• Chocolate Room [the coziest bedroom + on the first floor of the house]

Great extras
You’re welcome to our dinner service or to cook for yourself: For an extra charge, you can request the same vegetarian meal that our family is eating that night. Or, you can cook for yourself. Our kitchen is small, but fully stocked with many appliances (refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster oven, espresso machine, French press, juicer, and auto-lighting gas stove) + Indian spices, sugar, salt, butter, and cooking oil. We also provide breakfast basics, such as coffee, tea, bananas, etc. Note: If you want to share our dinner, please let us know by noon so we can buy the appropriate amount of ingredients. Thank you.

Fast WiFi: We try to provide the best WiFi service we can. Our WiFi is "pretty fast for Udaipur" (min 500 kbs and up to approximately 3 or 4 mbs, depending on traffic). Downloads are unlimited, but the speed decreases as downloads increase.

Misc. little amenities that make a big difference: Each bedroom has plenty of electrical outlets, some of which are universal outlets, so you don’t need electrical adapters. Each private bedroom/bathroom also includes a clothes line, make-up mirror, and hair dryer. And, you can use our laundry washing machine on the ground floor to wash your clothes yourself, or if you prefer + at an extra charge, we can send your clothes out for laundering.

Where you’ll be

Udaipur, Rajasthan, India

oolala is located in the area named, Outside Chand Pole (which means outside the “Moon Gate”). The neighborhood is in the densely populated, Ambamata side of the Chand Pole Bridge in the “old city.” You really feel as if you’ve been time-travelled back several hundred years as you walk through narrow alleyways, passing women in saris and sauntering cows. Then, at the end of the lanes, you see the peaceful lakes and lovely lakeside property. It’s a safe, vibrant area that has many restaurants, and is within walking distance of many tourist attractions.

oolala is also quite easy to find because the house is red and visible from many lakeside vantage points—it’s one-of-a-kind. So, you’ll be able to easily find your way back to your sanctuary on the lake at the end of an exciting day.
