Lovely experience, this place is tastefully done and the small touches and attention to detail shows. Kelshi beach is a quick 10 minutes walk through a quaint village lined with coconut and mango trees.Great place to recharge,take quick walks on a neat and clean beach with very few people around, be awoken by the sound of birds and go to sleep with the sound of crickets! If you want to get away from it all, this is the place to go to ! You can also explore multiple places close by if you want! Santosh the resident manager is really helpful and always ready to help with information, local tips, local food and ensuring you have a great stay. Thanks Tanmay & Gargi and Santosh for a great break.
So Amidst all the greenery of Konkan lies this coastal village with its unique rainwater management system. Cozy cottage is the place to stay which provides all the amenities one needs for indeed a cozy stay! We enjoyed the time we spent strolling thorough the village. Special thanks to Mr Santosh ( Manager) for his prompt assistance.
Very Cozy place. I wish the roads were better than I can come more often. So thoughtfully made and Mr. Mahajan (Santosh) is a great help. We could arrive very late so missed out and more prolonged stay.
Nice Place! Very comfirtable, nice rooms, very good for our trip with friends. Suggestion : to look in the kitchen will be fine for foreigner and also for babys! Thank you very much.
Excellent stay at Cozy Cottage. We were thrilled by such kind of facility in Konkan Region. Moreover the staff was very supportive & kind. They ensured us comfortable stay over here. As far as cottage is concerned it is very well architect and built. Also the Wi-Fi & professional touch is the icing on cake. Thanks.
Kelshi is a beautiful village. Although remote it is endowed with tremendous natural beauty. The stay at Cozy Cottage was very enjoyable, basically because of hygiene, ambiance & cleanliness is well maintained. Staying in such a remote village would not have been possible otherwise. Customer's needs are taken into account very minutely. All the best, for future & congratulations for starting such a resort!
We had a prompt service night when we were In Poona. Contacted Mr. Mahajan. It was a pleasure to be here. Every smallest thing is been taken care of. We are surely going to visit again. Cleanliness is awesome. We thank once again Mr. Mahajan.
This is my second home, these are very genuine feeling. Mr. Mahajan has taken outstanding efforts to maintain this beautiful atmosphere. Excellent location, decorated with very sensibly and with personal touch. My daughter really enjoyed to stay here when she was homesick. Thanks once again to Mr. Vichare, Mr. Mahajan for making our trip memorable.
As we moved from Mandangad to Kelshi and the horrible road, I had only one wish.. that the place should be nice & comfortable. Cozy Cottage didn't disappoint us. The place is very well done up and it. Still being new helps. The rooms are comfortable though they can be a bit roomy. I understand that the meal arrangement is outside but could have been good if it was in-house. The staff was courties and friendly and they tried to ensure maximum satisfaction for my family and our group. Sometimes we wish to be left alone but the staff didn't allow that. As strong "Must See" and "Must Visit" place cheers & all the best.
A lovely stay - Thank You. It could not have been better. A wonderful stay on our cycle journey from Mumbai to Goa. Thanks.!
