About the Homestay
We live in an amazing house built by my father - breathtakingly beautiful, and have the top room to spare. Just off the main road into the locality (a quieter part of Gurugram, India), our home is ensconced in greenery and the top room is almost hidden from the road. Yet it is open on 3 sides to balconies and a private terrace that opens on to the green spaces, and allows air and sunlight to stream in.
The bedroom (with en-suite kitchenette) is fairly large (16'x21') with 2 single beds and a day bed, 2 computer-work tables with chairs, a sideboard, a dressing table with stool, 2 wardrobes (lockable). You can sit out on the terrace that has loungers and chairs. En-suite bathroom.
The host will put you in touch with the laundry service (home collection and delivery) and you will pay directly to the laundry person. Clothes iron & access to washing machine available on chargeable basis. Wi-fi, TV, AC/room heater, power back-up and hair-dryer included. Vegetarian light breakfast is included in the tariff. Kitchenette is equipped with induction cooktop, water filter (water for drinking & cooking), electric kettle, fridge and toaster, plus basic cooking and eating utensils-crockery-cutlery.
The residence is well-connected with several eateries (Indian as well as Pizza hut, McDonald's, Subway, Cafe Coffee Day, Haldiram, etc.), ATMs, shopping malls, cinemas, medical (including hospitals - Columbia Asia being the nearest) - all at walking distance. The airport is just 20 minutes away.
We are a family of 2 - my mom who is a poetess, and myself, a facilitator of self-change and integrating spirituality in daily life. Languages spoken: English & Hindi, smattering of French, and a few regional languages of India.

Amazing!!! That's all i can sum up my stay at Awaahan. It is a Oasis in the middle of concrete jungle of Gurugram. Although i met with the host very briefly, but everything was organised meticulously. I was taken very good care by Arun in absence of Ms Anuradha. I would walk again at stay at Awaahan at very first opportunity. The house is located very conveniently to your local needs as well as transportation requirement (close to airport, railway station and highway). I had a memorable stay! Thank you Ms Anuradha.
Little Far from Delhi. but Very Nice & Clean Place to Stay in Gurugram. Anuradha Madam is Very Co operative & helping Nature. We enjoyed our homestay in this place. Again Very Superb.
I just loved my stay at awaahan, its really a beautiful place, well organised and adequately equipped. I am a hygiene conscious and cleanliness freak person that I might have troubles while staying at 5 star hotels either but I had no question about anything at awaahan. Anuradha is a great host, she is very attentive and caring. Morning breakfast was healthy and tasteful, staff was also very helpful. I appreciate the greenery they have maintained around, the area is peaceful and plush, I would love to come again and again !
