First and Best HomeStay!!
on Jun 10, 2018
Amazing property overlooking the Himalayas and the non-stop (Beas) river sound make the stay even more special in addition to the great views literally from all the corners of the house.
Praveen's (Pintu) property is in Vashisit, 100 meters away from the famous temple. There are many restaurants in this vicinity, we particularly liked the Freedom Cafe, was simply superb. Though we were 5 in total, I have booked the entire apartment to get some space for us.
I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxed, cozy place with great views. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Praveen's house and highly recommend for families.
May and June are super peak season in Manali and understandbly Praveen was busy. But he had arranged everything as per the expectation and his mom paid us a visit to see everything is in a order, that was sweet. Our daughter found some company to play with their guests one evening.
Our sincere thanks to Praveen's friend Ashwani ji who had made all the travel arrangements for us throughout the stay and the driver Harish Ji was a good person and knows a lot about Manali and the surroundings. Driver cum tour guide. Thoroughly enjoyed the company till Amritsar.
Please do take note that the property is located down from the road level and there are approximately 20-30 steps to reach the place. If any elders in the group then I suggest that you speak with Praveen whether there is an alternate route available to reach the place.
Tips : Main bedroom overlooking the mountain.
Home away from home

Lovely place to stay. Loved every bit of it. The sunrise, the sound of the river, the mountain backdrop and everything!
The kitchen had all the necessary cutleries for a basic cooking. But remember to pack all the groceries to cook.
The steep stairs upto the road was back breaking. But definitely worth the view down.
Will defnitely recommend this place.
Pherhaps the best homestay in Manali

This is one place which exceeded my expectations, we loved the place very much.
Owners Praveen(Pintu) & Kiran are very friendly people. They helped us book the vehicle for Rohtang. They gave lot of suggestions to go around based on our interests.
Best thing about this place is the location. It has beautiful panoramic view from the balcony. Very serene, yet accessible. This may not have star hotel kind of atmosphere, but what ever is there that's pretty good and they have put their heart into building this place and they are lot of thoughtful ideas gone into building this place.
We were 5 people and stayed there for 4 nights and while leaving felt as we should have stayed longer. Very good for a group of 5-8 people. Definitely value for money!
Driver of our cab, which we hired from Delhi, comes often to Manali and he too had lot of admiration for this property.

The location of this homestay is very good. You have shops, restaurants, bike rentals, bike service stations all at a walking distance. The rooms have a double bed with attached bathrooms and running hot water. Very clean and neatly maintained. One can see the snow capped mountains and Beas River from the balcony and the view is simply awesome. For someone who is looking for some peace and calm I think this place is best suited. There is no parking available so you will have to park your vehicles on the street but it is absolutely safe. We were a group of 6 and just stayed for a night but would love to go back again.
