Well, it will be really hard to ignore that Cape Town is one of the best and coolest cities in the world that has no shortage of spectacular viewing points. And what if I say that I had recently been there and the place where I was staying used to wake me up to the mind-blowing mountain views.

Designer Penthouse

The Designer Penthouse is definitely one of the perfect locations in the city (Western Cape) that is run by the perfect host Vera. Well-managed, well-decorated, comfy, and spacious area are some of the ideal features that make the apartment just a perfect fit, no matter you’re visiting there as a couple, with family, or on a business tour.

Talking about the place, the Penthouse consist of a huge living space spread on two floors and the downstairs area consists of a kitchen where you’ll be provided with literally everything, from espresso machine for your morning coffee to microwave and washing machine. Ah! I never felt like I am away from my home.

Wait, your wonderful host has even taken care of your entertainment, that means she has make an arrangement of a smart TV with an already setup Netflix account. What else you need after a long tiring day or after exploring the city? Just you and your favorite Netflix show along with South African finest wine and Braai. All sorted.

The downstairs was my favorite spot where I could enjoy sight-seeing those amazing mountain views, table mountain, lion head, signal hill, and devils peak without any interference.

No matter where you go or live, you never want to compromise with your beauty sleep, right? Again, not to worry, because Vera has taken good care about that too. The Penthouse has 3 different bedrooms with their respective features and the master bedroom was my first choice because it was having a queen size bed and I could wake up to the mountain views daily. The other two upstairs bedrooms also had a queen size bed and a huge balcony to enjoy some amazing views over the harbor and the HottenTotten Mountains in the distance.

Hey, if you’re planning to pay a visit in the summers then don’t miss chilling at the pool that is on the Penthouse’s level and can be easily seen from the upstairs balcony because working on the tan while enjoying some fantastic views is all anyone could ask for.

Believe me, once you visit the place, you’ll never want to leave the place soon. And the best part is that your host stays in the same building and will always help or make sure that you’re staying as amazing as possible.

The exotic aroma of Assam’s tea, beautiful silk bazaars, hilltop Kamakhya temple were some of the things that attracted me and made me move to my next destination-Assam. Besides being a traveler, I love doing wildlife photography as well, so I desired to stay somewhere nearby the very famous Kaziranga National Park. And guess what, I made a wish and it came true in the form of Villa Shivalay.

Talking about the villa, this luxury homestay is managed by a very adorable senior couple. I stayed there for 3 days and the place felt like home. The best part about the homestay is that it resides in a quiet locality, close to some of the main tourist spots like Kaziranga National Park, Majuli River Island, Hollongapar Gibbon Sanctuary and much more.

The homestay has 3 really beautiful bedrooms with a common living room, a kitchenette where you can enjoy home cooking and a wonderful garden to enjoy the village life and be in the lap of nature. They have also made arrangements for some good books and games to make the whole affair even more joyous.

What should I say about the hospitality, the very humble and courteous staff used to serve delicious hot meals every day. And since they use organic ingredients from their own kitchen garden, it makes their lip-smacking meals totally different and tastier than any other hotel’s food.

Overall, my experience with this amazing couple and their services was absolutely worth the visit. Do visit Villa Shivalay if Assam is your next stop too.

If you don’t spend your afternoons exploring sleepy Goan villages and beautiful architecture, you haven’t really experienced Goa. I am not saying just to say this but these are some true feelings of a happy soul who is sharing her experience with you all. And big big thanks to Hardika and Anirudh who made me explore this mesmerizing side of the city.

After getting a chance to know them, I came to know that this 30+ couple is actually from Mumbai who didn’t want to be a part of the rat race and decided to start their home to travelers, Miss Jenny’s Homestay, a peaceful location yet close to the city’s hustle-bustle that makes it the perfect to enjoy both the sides to the city.

Here are some of the Amazing Images I have Captured.

I’ll be starting with my favorite thing, but before that tell me if you’re a dog lover by any chance? Yes? Then you’re going to love the place even more because the couple lives with their adorable dog or I should say with their little furball of happiness. Not to worry even if you’re afraid of them because they have made arrangements (doggy gates) for those who aren’t comfortable with pets.

P.S: I had a great time with their dog. ( That’s Something Awesome )

Talking about saligao, the place is a lush village with Kingfishers, Drongons, local pubs, tiny eateries that serve the best homemade Goan food, and grand Old Portuguese homes. Oh! Did I mention that even they are living in the downstairs section of a 100-year-old Goan Portuguese house? In addition to that, there’s an amazing museum just behind their homestay as well.

You’re visiting Goa then, of course, you don’t just want to have a gala time at the Beaches, Forts, Markets or any other place mentioned in your Google search (Top 10 things to do in Goa or Best places to visit in Goa). You too need comfort and luxuries at your home or the place you’ll be staying at..

So, I checked Best time to visit Goa and booked this Home. Thankfully, Miss Jenny’s Homestay has two big cozy rooms on the upper level of the house that are interconnected, thus making it apt for family or a group of friends. They also have attached balconies and common sitting area in the garden. Hey look, you have such a peaceful place for reading, playing, and for enjoying their delectable Indian-Continental breakfast. The third floor is an independent garden cottage that makes it a perfect fit for those who prefer a ground level room.

It’s not the end, the place itself is well-equipped with HD TV, AC, Water heater, Water bottles, Minibar, Tea/ Coffee maker, and bath essentials in your room. Damn! There’s nothing to worry about any basic essential. 

If anyhow you’re paying a visit to the country’s pocket-sized paradise, don’t miss the chance to stay at this breathtaking villa that is beautifully run by two wonderful hosts and their love and warmth.
