Bitasta is the most generous and gracious host and if you are looking for somewhere quiet, elegant, comfortable and welcoming, you simply couldn't stay anywhere more inviting or more beautiful in Pondicherry. I recommend her and her home wholeheartedly and without reservation.

Bitasta is an amazing hostess. The accomodation and brekkies were 1st class. Her home is just a pure museum and so well situated. It has been a pleasure to stay with Bitasta and thank you so much for being so helpful and knowledgeable. For people who want to dive, the Temple adventures are a stone away and a pretty good bunch too. We will cherish fond memories to Pondi. Merci et au revoir!

I truly enjoyed the stay with Bitasta. She showed great hospitality and the experience is like staying with friends at their home. The house itself is tastefully decorated with old charm like a small museum. The terrace room is very spacious and nice. The other two rooms are very nice also with high ceiling and more cooling. Pondicherry and Auroville are both very inspiring places. For sure I will come back and stay with Bitasta!

We had a very pleasant stay at Bitasta's place. She was very hospitable and friendly . There was an issue with the toilet flush as it wasn't working but she brought a plumber to immediately look into it and got it fixed . Overall this place is ideal is for those who want to live in the heart of Pondicherry as it is very close to the beach and most of the good restaurants and attractions are close by .

If you want to experience real Pondicherry; if you are someone who enjoys art, heritage and culture; if you want to stay in a room with the best ever terrace that gives best ever view of a mesmerising sunrise; if you want to live in the best part of white town, choose this Homestay. Bitasta's home is like a beautiful art gallery. It's walkable distance from all the best cafes and restaurants of Pondicherry. It's right on the beach. We visited Pondi for our anniversary vacation. Be it a date under the stars atop our room's terrace or date night dinner that Bitasta arranged for us at The Promenade, I m short of words to describe the charm of this place. Her breakfasts were generous. Dogs were charming. I think her cocker spaniel Oscar had a crush on my wife (hehehe). She was quite helpful in arranging a taxi for us from and to chennai. Also, her suggestions about the local food, cafes, sightseeing and shopping were quite helpful. Would highly recommend her homestay (especially the rooftop room) if you're looking for a quiet Pondicherry vacation.

We had an amazing time staying with Bitasta. She is the perfect host! Not only is the house and its furnishing truly beautiful with a garden, a rooftop terrace and two lovely dogs - Bitasta also invited us to come along to cultural events in Pondicherry. We met lovely people and felt very welcome from the first moment. Bitasta's home is THE place to discover a wonderful part of India.
