Himalaica is the vacation home of Shalini and Uttam Dave, created with painstaking care over the past fiftenn years. That it is a labour of love is evident in the architecture, the interiors and the gardens. …MoreBuilt mostly by local craftsmen, the property achieves a unique character that seamlessly meshes a traditional country style with modern comfort – drawing its inspiration from the past, living in the present, and looking into the future. Unlike most vacation homes in the hill stations of India that remain boarded up, to be aired from time to time, Himalaica is a functioning home, with full-time staff, pets and a benchmark that says you will get freshly-brewed coffee anytime you walk in! Shalini spends much time and effort in maintaining the home in pristine condition, stocked with all the goodies one cares for on a vacation, while Uttam is passionate about the garden – continually working at it and introducing new species from his travels around the world!
