The location is wonderful. It stands true to its name !! The sanctity of the location is further maintained by Hemant’s staunch view on not throwing the place open to masses. Overall it was different and wonderful. The areas of opportunity are the food and the room servicing. It would be good to have some more food items for breakfast. For e.g: the day we stayed, upma was served for breakfast. It would have been good to team with an item like paratha to make for a filling breakfast. Especially with kids, its good to have a slightly better spread. The toilet/bathrooms could have been serviced more often.

The trip to Jhadpoli was a very enriching experience for the students and teachers too. The hospitality and warmth shown by the staff at the accommodation not only made us feel comfortable but also augmented our experience. The eco-friendly environment imbibed in the students a greater sense of responsibility and sensitivity towards mother earth. The beliefs and traditions followed by the team at the accommodation rooted values in the students’ minds. The healthy meals served at the farm were not only delicious but also detoxifying for all. This stay was a perfect destination for our students with special needs as it enhanced the students’ abilities. We would specially like to thank Mr Hemant for his support and enthusiasm with which he guided us through the trip. We especially appreciate your warmth and care towards the children, which additionally made their stay extremely enjoyable.

A BIG BIG thank you for the wonderful celebration my daughter Arianna had on her birthday at the Hideout !!! as she very gleefully put it, it was "her best birthday ever!!!! " your warmth and hospitality overwhelmed all of us, and everybody, adults and children alike, really let their hair down and had a blast . thanks for letting us share in your wonderful world and profound life experience. From the moment we stepped on to the farm until we left, your family so warmly embraced and took care of each of us - made us feel like we were home. But then you are a really special family, so how could we have expected anything less !! A big god bless to each of you and we promise to be back soon, this time with our little one.

A relaxing and educational stay at a well-maintained organic farm where the highlights include meeting a Warli artist, going inside a house belonging to a local tribal family, and cooking classes, as well as conversations with the caring owner. Highly recommended for a weekend away from Mumbai!
