“A fun time at a great place”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2015

As a large group of friends we had been planning to have a holiday for sometime and had narrowed down our search to Dala Rooster.After having read the previous reviews expectations were high and we were not disappointed at all. Leaving scenic beauty aside which was abundant ,the place itself was very comfortable. The children in our group were the happiest having space to play.We had arranged for a BBQ and Mr Bhajan and his wife the caretakers were very welcoming. Our whole group had a great time and would definitely repeat the experience and recommend it to others.

Response from the owner Thank you for choosing to stay in our Dala Rooster and we are happy to know that you had a wonderful stay. Do visit us again in the near future. Best Regards, Capt.Vikas Gokhale

“Home away from Home”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2014

Dala Rooster is a perfect oasis in the holiday village of Panchgani. Owned by Capt. Gokhale and efficiently maintained by Mr. and Mrs. Bhajan, the holiday home is spacious, cozy & comfortable. We were treated to an almost royal treatment and were never short of any facilities. We enjoyed our stay at the Rooster and wish to go back soon! Dala Rooster is really "A Home Away from Home!"

Response from the owner Thank you to your entire team of architects for visiting us and posting your review. We are happy to know that you all enjoyed your stay and found our Dala Rooster worthy of its praise. Please do come back again. Best Regards, Capt.Vikas Gokhale

“Excellent property very well complimented with very good location and food”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2014

The property is very well maintained. The overall structure is built with a theme and some historical background and the furniture and the decor really goes well with that theme. Capt Gokhale it was good too see your paintings. The food and hospitality was very good. I will recommend this property.

Response from the owner Thank you for posting your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay along with your family members. Thank you for appreciating the furniture and decor. Just to let you know, we have designed it without any professional help. All the paintings on the walls are done by my father and myself although we have no formal training as we both come from the marine background. We are looking forward to your next visit to Dala Rooster along with your friends which was cancelled the last time around. Warm Regards, Capt.Vikas Gokhale

“It was the best thing happned to our group.....we found this house”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

This is one the best, well equipped, well furnished and well kept house I have ever rented. This is includes houses we have rented across the world. The view from this house is absolutely gorgeous, especially if you like monsoon season. The housekeeper and his family are very friendly and warm.. They make great variety of traditional Maharashtrian veg and non veg food cooked to your order at a very reasonable rate. This is perfect house for large group to visit and have a great time. With 6 bedrooms and 5 baths makes it very convenient for large group. 10 of us friends went to Panchgani to celebrate our 50th birthday together and we had one of the most memorable time together. We were discussing staying options all across the spectrum and we were really glad we found this house. The large sitting and dining area accommodated us very easily. This house has a fantastic gazebo to enjoy the scenery. We spent many hours in this gazebo just chit chatting over cups of tea. This is very nice addition to this house many of our friends are already looking forward to visiting this place again soon, and I will too. T

Response from the owner Thank you Mr.Rajendra for posting your review. Really feel proud that somebody who lives in the U.S and who has seen several homestays across the world found our Dala Rooster to have fulfilled your expectations and be worth a praise. Thank you once again and we look forawrd to see you, your family and friends visit us in the near future. Warm Regards from Capt.Vikas Gokhale

“Superb stay with amazing views & warm hospitality”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2014

Mere words cannot describe this beautiful place. It has amazing views of the valley no doubt but what makes it special is the warm hospitality. The care taker couple are extremely caring, considerate & make you feel right at home. The house is maintained very well - extremely clean & well equipped that leaves you lacking for nothing. This place is a better option than staying in a 5 star hotel because what you get here is the special care right from your food needs to everything to make your stay most comfortable.

Response from the owner Thank you for choosing to stay in our Dala Rooster.It was indeed a pleasure meeting you and your family. Do come back again. Warm Regards, Capt.Vikas Gokhale

“A Perfect place for to be with your loved ones !”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2014

We wanted to celebrate our first wedding anniversary at a place where we would get a mix of urban luxury as well as countryside and hill side view. And, Dala Rooster proved to be a perfect match. The care-taker couple Mr. and Mrs. Yadav's hospitality as well as cooking was a pleasant surprise and the owner, Mr. Gokhale arranged for a cake, which was actually an icing on the cake ! The bungalow is thoughtfully designed, and Mr. Gokhale's and his father's paintings along with his mother and wife's crafts give a regal look to the house. The view from all the rooms is refreshing through out the day. The Amenities, the cutlery, the cleanliness and hygiene was at par or better than most of the 4 starrers that I have seen !Plan to visit soon.

Response from the owner Thank you for posting your review. We are glad to know that you had a wonderful time in our Dala Rooster and that we were able to match or even exceed your expectations. Please do visit us again. Best Regards, Capt.Vikas Gokhale

“Homely Treatment, Superb Amenities, Excellent Maintenance!”

Reviewed 19 May 2014

I, my wife and my friend and his wife, four of us stayed at Dala Rooster on 1st May 2014 and checked out on 2nd May 2014. We had decided to not to go out for sight seeing but to just relax for a day and spend time together. All we needed was a quiet and elegant place to stay, natural surroundings, homely treatment and great food. Our expectations were not only fulfilled but exceeded, I must say. The reception, the garden, the peace, the location and the architecture won our hearts in the first half an hour itself. The amenities are comparable to any professionally managed star hotel. They are coupled with a big garden on both sides of the construction. The valley just behind the resort is rich in plants, birds and is a pleasing sight at any moment of the day. The climate was good too. They check with you if you would like to have food prepared by the care takers and take my word one should say YES. Absolutely homely and tasty food as suggested by you (based on the availability of raw material in the market) is prepared and is served in a very disciplined manner. You can spend your evening at the garden or a round table arrangement hanging besides the valley. Comfort, exclusive treatment and peace of mind are the things you can look for over here. As such, many of us might have seen Panchgani and Mahabaleshwaer more than once. The real beauty lies not in the various points for which these places are known but the calm and quiet natural surroundings. Well, the cost always is one of the factors when we plan a trip. Again take my word, if you spend a rupee here, you feel like having got two rupees back. Value for your money is high. In comparison with most of the hotels in the area, Dala Rooster offers you accommodation at a very very justifiable cost and fits your budget for sure. They have managed a perfect balance between commercialization and homely treatment. Lot of parking place is available. Most of the tourist spots are reachable within 20 to 40 minutes. Market is nearby. Food, if ordered at the resort itself, attracts extra cost but that is the beauty of the stay there. Breakfast and Tea / Coffee are complimentary. Far from the crowd that spoils your short trips, safe and elegant than the professionally managed hotels, Dala Rooster is IDEAL FOR FAMILIES. Good care is taken of your belongings, your expectations of a peaceful stay and the Company that you would like to have around when you are with your family. Captain Vikas Gokhale personally deals with each inquiry and ensures that each guest has a satisfied face at all the times during the stay. I strongly recommend families to opt for Dala Rooster if they have a day or two to be spent peacefully in the natural surroundings with great and exclusively prepared food. - Bhushan Katakkar

Response from the owner Thanks Bhushan for posting your review.It is indeed our pleasure to host you and we are delighted to know that you enjoyed your stay. Please do visit us again. Warm Regards, Leena & Capt.Vikas
