Stayed there for a week while doing a paragliding course (unforgettable experience, just do it!) and it was fantastic. Lively, friendly and sociable venue with great food served straight from the kitchen and eaten house-party style. Most westerners in India only meet a string of touts and hustlers but here you're mingling with educated types weekending from Mumbai and the atmosphere is great. Hosts Sanjay and Astrid are great, as are all the staff in the guest house and paragliding school. Native Place is just outside a small village, Kamshet, and feels a world away from the city but is only a couple of hours highway drive from Mumbai, rent a car or just ask them to book you a driver. You might feel a little left out if you're not paragliding but there's an easy answer to that: give it a try. Wrote it up for the Independent in the UK and it's still online at http://www.independent.co.uk/travel/asia/wings-and-a-prayer-learning-to-paraglide-in-india-448410.html. Best of luck to them.
