Kashid has always been one of the top weekend destinations for me ever since the first visit on a rainy friday night way back in 2007. It has still retained most of its charm, the sand is still white, the beach is still one of the cleanest & its beauty still unblemished. 5 years on, the magic of the white sands & the raging waves, coupled with the dark monsoon clouds & light drizzle still remains as spell-binding as ever!
This time around we decided to camp in at RK's villas. We were 2 couples & hence we decided to book the entire first floor. With 2 separate bedrooms, a living room with a dining area, a kitchen & a large balcony sitout, this place is as close as it gets to the feeling of a holiday home.
Although the price might seem to be slightly on a higher side, the homely ambience & the peaceful stay will sure make every penny of yours count.
The hospitality of the caretaker is worth mentioning & the service was prompt.
The frequent power outages are also taken care of, as they have generators as a backup, thus ensuring un-interrupted power supply.
Although the beach is a 10 min walk from the villa, the waves can still be heard, while you are sipping your cup of tea on the balcony.
With more bedrooms available on the ground & second floor as well, this serves as a perfect destination for a weekend outing with your old gang or with some of your long-lost relatives.
For the romantic couples, there is always the much desired privacy on the second floor with a single bed room with 2 really large attached terraces.
Who says beaches are a summer destination, try this one out on a rainy day & trust me you will love every bit of it!
