Dala rooster is a beautiful home away from home. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and Dilip and his wife ensure they are kept spick and span.

Das, the caretaker and his wife are fantastic cooks. They keep your stomach Happy all day long.
Das wants his guests Happy. Need anything? ask Das. The Indian version of Jeeves. Need a doctor? Or a masseur? ask das. Need kulfi or fish fry ask Das.
Monica is super warm and friendly. Most helpful and sweet.

Wish I could have stayed there forever!

I had heard about this place from a cousin and then decided to gain a 1st hand experience when we decided for a picnic.
We expected a nice bunglow decently maintained with some caretakers. However when we actually reached there we were zapped amazed and surprisngly and rather happily shocked.
To say Dala Rooster is just a bunglow is an insult ! Its an amazing structure built in Scandinaviann style. Wow is the only way to describe this place.
This place has 2 self contained bedrooms at the basement and 1 bedroom on the ground floor. The ground floor also has the lavish drawing room and a well equiped kitchen and dining area. The 1st floor has 3 bedrooms.
To top it all there is a gazebo and the view is just outstanding.
The caretaking staff was courteous and extremely helpful.
Although the package is breakfast and evening tea only, we still decided to dine indoor on the 1st evening of the stay. We were served delicious dinner and the food was tasty and nutritious.
The best member of the staff was Motya - their Dog- who had a gala time with our kids.
Do visit this place and enjoy the stay and food. Salute to the Gokhale family who own this place for ensuring discipline while extending courtsey to guests.

My journey and arrival at Dala Rooster was an amazing & awesome driving experience.
The rainy season was about to finish.
Entire Panchgani valley was flourished with countless green plants, herbs, etc.
Dala Rooster homestay is located right in the valley and top of the valley.

Drawing room/living room of Dala Rooster

The drawing hall or room or living room got a huge glass window.
From that window, the entire green valley was visible to me.
Bhillar (name of the village and it is now called as Bhillar Book Village) Natural Water Falls was still running.
The waterfall was creating an amazing sound. Entire Dala Rooster veranda was full of greenery. I also found a colour to all the walls was very fresh. When did I ask Captain Gokhale about it? I was told those were imported polish, which he applied on all the walls. I was not aware of such polish and that was my new learning.

I found a number of hand paintings hanging on each wall. Captain Gokhale informed me that his father painted all those paintings. Captain Gokhale’s father is the grandson of Namdar Gopal Krishna Gokhale.

I found a simple and robust furniture in the hall.

When I checked with Captain Gokhale about it? He told me that the entire furniture is made and designed using Babhali wood.
He also informed that he used Babhali wood since Babhali is the only wood which does not attract any wood bugs namely Walvi.

Heritage Newspaper Created By Namdar Gopal Krishna Gokhale & family heritage

In the living room, I also found the original newspaper that was created & published by Namdar Gopal Krishna Gokhale.
I also found images of the entire Gokhale family.
Seeing this heritage material took me into history books which I learned when I was in school.

All 6-bedrooms

Dala Rooster got overall 6-bedrooms.
3-bedrooms on the first floor.
1-bedroom on the ground floor.
2-bedrooms below the ground floor.

All the bedrooms got a unique design.
All the bedrooms were neat, clean & tiptop.
Every toilet was neat, clean & hygienic too.
All the bedrooms were facing towards Panchgani valley and that ’s something incredible, wonderful, peaceful, inspiring and satisfying too.


Dala Rooster got a huge kitchen.
The kitchen well designed, well decorated, neat, clean & up to date.
Local caretaker staff cook & serve amazing and tasty home cooked food.
While watching & observing the local staff while cooking! I realized (found by sheer observation) they were using fabulous spices.
When I checked with Captain Gokhale about it! He told me that all spices used in cooking are homemade. He also informed that these spices are available to the traveller to buy it since every traveller who enjoyed the taste of Indian food over there? Started demanding the spices used in Dala Rooster.


Dala Rooster’s another inspirational spot.
This Gazebo takes a traveller into the different world.
I ate my breakfast & lunch in this Gazebo.
Eating or drinking in Gazebo (early in the morning, afternoon or in the night) gives 3 different experiences all together to each traveller and I enjoyed all the 3 experiences in one day.

Overall my first experience at Dala Rooster is awesome and I recommend Dala Rooster homestay to all global travellers who are sick of urban cities, who are sick of sound & air pollution that happens in urban cities and above all who are keen to stay away from their own homes but still want to live and take homestay experience.
