7 Reviews

Our speciality

Escape the city & rejuvenate your spirits at this charming Parsi-owned villa in Gholvad, a 15-minute walk from the beach (Bordi beach). Just 45 minutes ahead of Dahanu, this villa is an idyllic retreat.

Detailed Description

Come rejuvenate your spirits in a quiet, eco-friendly environment, surrounded by lush greenery and chikoo orchards. Gholvad, being a relatively unexplored beach destination 45 minutes away from Dahanu, is the perfect summer getaway.

A charming four bedroom homestay located 15 minutes from Gholvad beach, Master's Courtyard is ideal for families looking to escape the city for a weekend. Relax with your loved ones in our comfy living room, gear up for a cozy tete-a-tete on our indoor swing or explore the owner’s personal collection of artifacts adorning the private courtyard.

Known as the ‘Chikoo Bowl’ of Maharashtra, Gholvad is famous for its chikoo orchards and ancient Parsi-Irani bungalows. Stroll between rows and rows of orchards, admire the architecture of old Parsi houses and fall in love with the raw beauty of the place (untouched by industrial development). One can also stop by a tribal home and check out the Warli paintings adorning the house or stop by Vrindavan Studios where the TV epic Ramayana was shot. For the foodies, we recommend checking out the local eateries for delicious Parsi food and Taari (a famous drink that Parsis would choose over tea, any day).

Great place and amazing hosts! If you are looking for a quiet place to relax over the weekend, away from the hustle & bustle of the city, this is a great option - Simple, spacious and memorable. I stayed the weekend with Family - elders and kids - and everyone enjoyed it. Expect a laid back weekend, surrounded by nature and some great conversations with the host. The hosts are very warm and welcoming. They were gracious enough to share their house, their stories and ensured we had a great stay. Recommended for folks looking to enjoy a nice, relaxed weekend. One thing to watch out for - mosquitoes. They do provide mosquito repellents in each room but maybe carry a mosquito repellent cream if you are a mosquito Magnets :) I have found that any place that's surrounded by nature does tend to have mosquitoes, so keep that in mind. Overall a Fun and memorable experience. ...

A wonderful fun filled stay and an excellent host! Indeed a memorable stay at the bungalow. The architecture of the first level which houses all common spaces was excellent and made the stay even more memorable. The only reason why 1 star is removed from the overall rating is issues with the air conditioner. However, the host went out of his way to help us out on this front and is looking into the issue.No other complaints. ...
