  • An amazing collection of artefacts made from a most special metal. Fabulous designs and set in the most beautiful and pristine environment. A definite surprise to find such beauty in such a tucked away place. We met Mrs Mathur the heart behind the business and it was such a nice experience.
  • The reviews were great on Airbnb, so we decided to book here for a different experience. There was some hitch while booking so we called a person named Mr. Suresh, who assured us that the place was booked for the weekend, we should have listened. We saw the bookings open on Airbnb & went ahead. First of all it's a lovely property, accessible by a narrow road which winds down. Their home is beautiful, they have given one small room for rent, must be a servant room by the look of it. It's on the ground floor housed with the art gallery. All day there are people in the adjoining room, which lies between the art gallery and this room. Though your door is locked, no peace or privacy. None of the reviewers wrote there is an amusement park, on the next plot. The whole day there were screams from revellers. On reaching in the afternoon, I asked one of the maids for tea, she flatly refused, saying that there was a kitchenette with enough supplies, to make tea ourselves. They served us breakfast at 10 am the next day, delicious poha, omelette. Again I asked for a large mug of tea. The cook got cups & a large mug & promptly gave the mug to own of the owners, in a case of snubbing? This is the attitude, I feel with Airbnb, these people want the money yet are very stingy in sharing their home. No TV, no place to move about at night. Their art gallery has fabulous stuff, the prices though on the higher side justify the labour involved. Do visit the gallery, but don't stay over. We have removed the Airbnb app. Will not be booking through it henceforth.
  • An amazing place to visit... They work with local artists to collaborate with different mediums.... Beautiful art pieces...out of the book structure... :) The owners have worked hard to build this space. Must visit.
  • A must visit if you are in panchgani or Mahabaleshwar and you like are or making things... There is a lot going on here from the dokra work (lost wax casting technique), to gourd and pumpkin carving to iron work. But the best part is that often all the artists collaborate. It's like an ancient makerspace, everything under one roof. They have a homestay which is available through Airbnb and they also have artist residencies. Finally they do have a store where they showcase and sell their work.
  • An NGO which showcases the work of Adivasi Craftsmen from Naxal Affected Areas of Gadchiroli & Chattisgarh. What I loved here was Devrai Rock Dhokra art form which is unique to Devrai Art Village is a fusion of metal and stone which are custom made by carftsman.
