This Riverside Eco Retreat nr. Karjat overlooks the hills of Matheran and surrounded by mango orchards.
This architect Vistasp Mehta designed eco property offers an escape from the city to soak up the peace of nature.
Relax, read, play, swim, walk, or simply do nothing. Enjoy simple, healthy country food.
The property is exclusive and the two night weekend package price is good value, as it includes food and warm-hearted service. So please don’t haggle! We can help manage the tax. Pls ask how.
Riverside Eco Retreat nr. Karjat is a farm house situated in a hundred acre estate, which you are welcome to explore.
In line with the objectives of Modak Van Society, you can learn first hand about nature and see rainwater harvesting and solar power in action.
Look out for the notes and guide books on birds, trees and flowers.
We can comfortably accommodate six to eight adults in two bedrooms and can sleep ten at a push. Larger groups would have to sleep on two charpois or even the floor and we prefer to avoid that.
Children under ten years of age would need to be supervised.
Water is drawn from the borewell, run through an ozonation process and is very drinkable. We have it tested once a year.
The house runs on solar power, so you should not suffer electricity outages. During the monsoons we may be more reliant on the grid.
We have A/Cs in the bedrooms, which run on the grid, but we rarely need to use them because the house was designed for natural cooling. Because of the irregular electricity supply, A/C cannot always be guaranteed, so if that would spoil your visit, Sohana may not be for you… During the monsoons and winter we remove the air vent covers and switch the A/C off.
The courtyard water tank is filtered and kept bacteria-free by ozonation, meaning we use very little chlorine and can use the water for irrigation of the trees and plants. You will usually find some natural sediment on the bottom and some insects floating on the surface, but it is great for swimming and our help will remove anything that worries you.
The river Pej borders the orchard and has a path to help you explore its banks and rapids.
Yours for the weekend, this is our home during the week.
You are free to use the two bedrooms, kitchen and living room, as well as the water tank for swimming, BBQ, TT Table, badminton area, fussball table, carrom board and a host of other interesting games.
An optical digital cable connection, gives you unlimited and fast Internet access.
Our cook, a lady from the village, prepares simple vegetarian and non-veg fare which can be agreed upon before hand so we can get the ingredients and is included in the price. We provide a menu by once you book.
You can bring your own meat and cook it on the barbecue or ask our cook to prepare it for you.
The food is prepared under your supervision as we don’t have a restaurant licence.

In an emergency, the Estate Manager, who lives in the village can be relied upon to assist.
Smoking is strictly not allowed anywhere within the premise of the house. If you must smoke then it would need to be outside the garage area and you may ask my helper lady to give you an ashtray. We like to preserve the sanctity of the nature surrounding us, so prefer not to have cigarette butts dropped around.
