The space

The Space

An affordable clean place to stay during your time in Mumbai, and especially to be able to give tourists the opportunity to stay with an Indian family and to experience Indian customs and traditions and of course also to introduce them to authentic Indian culture, cuisine and care!

Our visitors love to enjoy the private terrace overlooking a beautiful garden! We are situated ideally in a quaint and authentic quarter of the city, and evenings are best enjoyed sitting on the terrace observing the amazing birds above and the beautiful rain trees below. A cup of chai (tea) is perfect at sunrise as well!

Location – neighborhood description
It is a 5 minute walk to the train station and thus very accessible to South Bombay and North Bombay, for the purpose of easily visiting the historical and cultural sites of the city. There are also local bus stalls (selling tickets for private bus tours) to other towns and cities in Maharashtra and also to other interesting places in other states close by. We are about 14 km from the International airport.

There are 24-hr Pharmacies nearby and also a Reliance Supermarket at walking distance.

Other Things
You are not allowed to host parties nor have any other visitors in the apartment. Alcohol is prohibited.

If you are travelling for research or any otherwise, that requires a long-stay, you are welcome to stay with us for longer periods of time as well.

This is not an airbnb accommodation. It is truly a home away from home. The warmth and the hospitality is something you can never get anywhere else. It is the best airbnb I have ever been to and it is so because of Mrs. Postel and Fabia. Truly great people. Lots of love and a great thanks to them for hosting me. If you are in Bombay this is where one should be. It is a 6 star experience.

What a great home away from home.....the Mother Daughter duo takes care of their guests to the smallest details. We enjoyed the superb flat where they stay....full open on one side and big windows in the room. A rare thing in Mumbai houses.....

The room and house is a copy of the description given here. Its lovely 10th floor appt, overlooking a beautiful park. The size of the balcony is something you would not have seen in Mumbai and is pure bliss early in the morning. The room is cosy with all requirements taken care of. There is an attached bathroom which is very clean and hygienic. Soraya and her daughter are a wonderful host. They take great care to make you feel at home while away from home and do a fabulous job of it. They are more than ready to help you with any requirements of yours including offering to drop or pick you up. They offer great tips on sightseeing and food. Food serve at the appt (breakfast and dinner) is awesome and lip smacking! All in all, I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a comfort stay in central Mumbai.

I have been to quite a few homestays and Soraya's place beats them all hands down! In fact, it's the first time that I actually cared enough to write a review. Soraya and her daughter Fabia are fantastic hosts who really make you feel at home. We were accompanied by our two-year-old daughter and all of us loved their place! The room itself is cozy, well-lit, spotless clean and very windy! They get the housekeeping done pretty well to keep it that way too. Being on the top floor of the building, the apartment gets an awesome view of the sunrise from the spacious terrace that everybody on airbnb keeps raving about. More than anything else, it was the welcoming nature of the duo that made us comfortable immediately. At 'home', we chatted away times together, enjoyed having meals together, went out for an evening walk together, spotted out parrots together and had a real good time! My daughter, who us generally shy of new people, got so quickly fond of her 'Fabi didi' that it took us by surprise. And by the way, if you're a parent of a pretty stubborn kid, Soraya is THE person you should seek advice from! She shared with us so many parenting tips that actually work, and we really thank you, Soraya, for that! All in all, it had been an absolutely enjoyable experience for us and they do deserve the superhost status airbnb has bestowed upon them! We made two new friends during this trip and got rid of the question of where to stay next time we are in Mumbai! We wish both the lovely ladies the best that life can offer and any troubles heading their way vanish in a puff. :-) Until next time!

Don't think - just book! This is THE place to stay in Mumbai! Fabia and Soraya are amazingly generous and caring hosts! They were so flexible in everything from my initial online contact with them till the time I left their place. They took care of me like family and I felt secure and very happy with them. I was actually sad when I had to leave as I felt there was so much more to share and talk about. The apartment itself is a dream - amazing space in a crowded city like Mumbai. Do watch the sunrise from the balcony! Warm, extremely generous, engaging and very organized. Thank you for your love and I am sure we will meet again!
