House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children under 12 and the host doesn’t allow pets or parties.
Half an hour away from hum drum of Kasauli town - a sprawling three-bedroom villa with a big living room, a spacious functional kitchen for self-catering and big terraces with panoramic valley views; has a treehouse and a fireplace on the deck for barbecue. In winters, one can see even the majestic snow clad Dhauladhar range of Himalayas. Suitable for those interested in privacy, minimalism and wanting a digital detox. There's no full-time housekeeper/caretaker.

The space
Feel the burden of city living fall away from you in the abundant light, air and space provided by the uncluttered interiors and floor-to-ceiling windows opening on to the terrace from every room. The serenity of this house is underscored with minimalism in decor. The few pieces of wooden furniture showcase traditional Indian pieces juxtaposed with distressed, grungy or modern ones. Sadly my IPhone pictures don't fully capture the space or the charm of the place. You will yourself discover quirky touches in the lamps and light fixtures made with recycled materials such as rope, left-over wooden pieces, whiskey covers and even a mouse trap! The house is a story of our travels and our life. Each spacious room has its own character, afforded by its views and its contents - be it Afghan cushions, or an Iranian Tabriz carpet, or a Russian vase, a Japanese coffee service, Polish crystal wine glasses, Italian chinaware, or the posters collected from the museums we have visited. On the deck is a brick fireplace that can be used for cozying up on chilly evenings or for a barbecue. Kids will enjoy climbing up to and playing in the tree-house that was built specifically for the four grandchildren of the house. We have deliberately avoided keeping a television or having wi-fi to enable our guests to digital detox without temptation of screens. We do not have a full-time housekeeper or caretaker, so you would be on your own.

Guest access
all parts are accessible to the guests.

Other things to note
Maintaining a house in the hills is not an easy task. Rains tend to take a heavy toll. Some repairs may be pending at the time of your stay. Please bear with us. The minimalist furniture may not be to everyone's taste. Regardless, the home has a lot of character and comfort. Please make sure you bring a lot of drinking water as we don’t have any RO system at home as we are not sure of the drinking water quality one can achieve in the hills. We do not have wi-fi or television. Electricity in the hills can be a problem, outages are common. While there is a lot of greenery outside, it is in its natural state and we have just planted flower trees and bamboos to make a tiny garden outside. We need to call for a water tanker every time there's a guest, so please do conserve water. We do not have a full-time, live-in caretaker/housekeeper, so please do not expect daily cleaning (it's on alternate days) or to be waited on.

You can choose to revel in the quiet and solitude of the house, or venture out for nature walks and a bit of history ( the place is near Kuthar Palace). The Kuthar palace is about 15 min leisurely walk from the villa and hosts the Alcor resort and spa and a restaurant for your dinners/lunches. 7 pines nearby also has a restaurant.
