Chennai house description

Three bedroom independent house. All bedrooms have attached bathrooms with modern fittings and air conditioning. Kitchen includes refrigerator, gas stove and microwave, with plates, utensils, and cookware. Pool with jacuzzi. Outdoor grill and kitchen area for barbecue. Backyard with lawn and plenty of seating. Utility room with washing machine. Has broadband / wireless internet connection through USB adapter.

A short walk to the beach on a private and gated road (about 750 feet). The beach is generally quieter than the main ones in the city. Perfect for an morning or evening stroll.

Ideally located in a quiet neighborhood away from the traffic and pollution of the city, yet close enough for easy access to the heart of the city. Close to the entertainment / shopping complex Mayajaal (http://www.mayajaal.com/). Many other restaurants and stores are also close by. About an hour's drive to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mahabalipuram (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahabalipuram). Also close by to the IT Corridor.

Other nearby sites include:

Dakshina Chitra (Highly recommened for architecture / history buffs!) (http://dakshinachitra.net/)
Madras Crocodile Bank (http://www.madrascrocodilebank.org/cms/)
MGM Dizzee World (http://www.mgmdizzeeworld.com/)
Tirukalukundram (Ancient 1,500 year old temple) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tirukalukundram)
Auroville. A peaceful international ashram community(http://wikitravel.org/en/Auroville).
Pondicherry (Historic French colony in India). A 2-3 hr drive along the scenic East Coast Road right along the coastline. (http://wikitravel.org/en/Pondicherry)

There are plenty of opportunities for day trips!

A caretaker and his family live in a separate building in the property. They can guide you in places to see, arranging for transportation, and any other help you may need. They are also excellent cooks and will be happy to prepare authentic South Indian meals as well as do the cleaning if you wish.

                    We stayed at this location for a month and the house was perfect for us and our family from India who visited us there. The rooms each having their own bathroom made it great to all be together and yet still have your own privacy and comforts when needed. The swimming pool provided exercise, fun, and a great way to cool off. The caretaker and his wife cooked wonderful meals for us and went over and above the call of duty to be helpful and make our stay a pleasant experience. The fenced in yard made the home and lovely garden, with the mango,lemon,palm, trees and flowers seem like a private little oasis.

                    Recommended for: Pet owners, romantic getaway, age 55+, tourists without a car, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway.

                    We are a family from the UK with four children under the age of 10. Our criteria was simple, we wanted a house that was reasonably priced and had a swimming pool, as all of our kids love swimming! When we found this property the first thing that stood out to us was the excellent communication we had with the owner. He replied promptly to emails and had lots of local knowledge to assist us during our stay. He advised us to visit the property and to make sure that it fulfilled our requirements. The house more than satisfied our requirements for a number of reasons... The house is a lot larger than we anticipated and there was lots of space for our children to play in and to amuse themselves. The house was clean and tastefully decorated. There was a lovely caretaker and his family that live on the same site. The family were extremely helpful during our entire stay. They prepared some of the best Indian food I have personaly tasted in Tamil Nadu! I have eaten in many places in the city, but the quality and favour of the food was wonderful, with even my UK children asking for more! The food was all bought fresh that day and tasted delicious! There was so much food at lunch time there was still pretty of leftovers at dinner time and the cost was very reasonable indeed! The local beach is only a brisk 5 minute walk along a private road. The house is in an excellent location off the East Coast Road. The road is a direct route towards the centre of Chennai (about an hour) or in the opposite direction the historic Mahabalipuram is another 35Km, further still is Pondicherry all along the same main road. We did not have a vehicle but a local taxi company assisted us, charges for a day were very reasonable. The pool was wonderful! The outdoor space is landscaped well with plenty of shade under mango trees. The BBQ area is large and is geared up for parties. At night there are plenty of outdoor lights that are particularly romantic when spending time in the pool. The A/C was excellent in the rooms upstairs and although the rooms downstairs were without A/C, the fans worked well. My only suggestion would be updating the dining table, chairs and sofa, although these were still perfectly functional. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already booked the house again with our in-laws this December. This is a lovely get away for the whole family and is big enough to accomodate a party. I would definately recommend!

                    Recommended for: Age 55+, adventure seekers, tourists without a car, families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing, girls getaway.

                    We have stayed at this house for two weeks this August. Great family home. We felt like we didn't miss much since we are from Canada. The house keeper and his family are amazing fun loving people with full of smile in their face and they will help you with anything you ask for. We didn't use the pool much since we had another house near by for our brothers family... Amazing indian breakfast made by house keeper for very little price for the grocery. What an amazing time we had at this house...we enjoyed more than the price we paid as rent for those two weeks. I will recommend this house for anybody...

                    My family and my in-laws (8 in all) were looking for a relaxing family outing near the beach on our current trip home - we stumbled upon this property and were thrilled to stay here. It lived to its expectations - the photos do no justice to the beauty of the property, it is very accessible, the pool was awesome.. Loved the jacuzzi in the pool. The beach was a little messy the day we went to get into the water, we were very grateful that we had the pool to swim, lounge and relax. The caretaker was super nice, he even accompanied us to the nearby beach seeing there were many women in our group. He fixed up dinner for us from nearby restaurants and he provided us with awesome coffee and tea! There were 4 bedrooms instead of the 3 listed, so all of us slept very comfortably. In fact, we could have had 2 more people sleep comfortably. They were missing a television, the caretaker mentioned that they've ordered a large LCD tv to replace the old CRT one - we didn't miss it though, we had a lot of fun and the absence of the tv meant more family time! The bathrooms could use a little bit of TLC, was a little out of sync with the rest of the house! The owner was very nice to talk to and helped set things up for us. Would recommend this place without hesitation!

                    Vacation rental is about 45 minutes from downtown Chennai because of heavy traffic both ways. The beach is barely accessible because of roaming dogs and the ocean is filthy because of sewage drainage from the city. Ongoing problems with Wi-Fi connection. Inadequate mattresses on beds, threadbare towels, terrible sewage odor in one of the bathrooms, inadequate showers, poorly stocked kitchen utensils, dirty furnishings. The groundskeeper and his family were congenial and helpful. We left early and did not ask for a refund. We hope some of that extra unused rent was shared with the on site groundskeeper as we did not require any extra cooking or housekeeping. The accommodation was not up to Western standards, but by Indian standards it could have been much worse. We did enjoy the pool, but some kind of chemical in it stained bodies and suits blue. Owners were helpful, but they live in Texas. We wouldn't recommend this property to a friend or relative.

                  About the owner: We are originally from Chennai, India, now living in the US. We stay in this house when we go back for vacations.

                  Why the Owner Chose Chennai:
                  This house appealed to us because of the location. A quiet neighborhood, yet with easy access to the city. Perfect for an evening stroll to the beach.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Newly buily pool with a relaxing jacuzzi. Plenty of fruit trees, so if you go at the right time, help yourself to a mango!
