If there's one thing the pandemic has made me value, it's a vacation! After being confined at home in Mumbai (You know the average space of a Mumbai flat) for over 8 months, an open and humongous space is what my soul was craving.
I had been longing to enjoy a mask-free vacation. Is that even possible I asked myself? Turns out it is at Villa 30 in Khandala. A 4BHK villa which is home to the brightest space, a private lawn and pool that will remind you what sunshine feels like (Because clearly all of us have forgotten.)
I hadn't known about this place for the longest time, and now it's a secret I want to share because it's PERFECT for your next weekend getaway. Why you ask? Read on...
- Accessible Location: Weekend getaways are supposed to be relaxing and so should be your journey. Villa 30 is only a 1.5 hour from Mumbai and Pune which means you reach your vacation destination in no time. The best part? You don't have to worry about crossing the Lonavala market traffic or get lost in the many lanes there, Villa 30 is super easy to get to from the highway. Alternatively, the train station is less than 10 mins away, so if you wish to travel by train, that's a definite option too.
- Humongous Villa with Contemporary Interiors: A vacation is all about having the luxury of space, right? Villa 30 has a humongous living cum dining room that's perfect for a large group or even a small group because extra space never hurts. The living room has direct access to the pool and lawn which invites a lot of natural light, sound of chirping birds, and breeze that makes you feel that good vibe all day. The outdoor area is where we spent a lot of our time enjoying the picturesque view through the evenings and moonlit nights, once the sun sets, it gets nippy there and that's definitely fun.
