This vacation home is just perfect in all aspects.
Someone who is planning to visit Santiniketan and want to get the best out of it should choose this vacation home. We stayed there for one week and gathered a lifetime experience. The house is at walking distance from the railway station called "Prantik". Its a place where one can enjoy the beauty of bucolic view in presence of perfect calmness. Lots of trees, low density of neighbouring houses, which are maximally two-stored, allow fresh breeze to flow all the time. In the house there is a parking slot (enough for a SUV) with a small but beautiful lawn attached to it. Rooms are big. ACs and geysers are all in good condition. Although the beauty of Prantik itself is enough to give someone the pleasure of a perfect tour, it is difficult to avoid the desire to see Visva-Bharati, which is also very near to the house. One can avail car or bus to go there. But we preferred bycycles, which can be borrowed from nearby stores. Those were rides to remember. This vacation home gave us a homely feeling. The short distance allowed us to visit Visva-Bharati whenever we wanted. In short, the house not only provided us a place to stay but also helped us to get the best out of that tour. So I would strongly recommend someone who is planning to visit Santiniketan to stay here.

Amazing place
It was a stupendous experience. Beautiful house, nice environment, friendly and professional staffs, awesome location. Staying there made my summer vacation million times better than I expected it to be. To be honest, I felt like home. And this house's architecture and interior have a perfect blend of traditional Santiniketan culture and a modern house. And the beautiful garden is an amazing place to relax. I would definitely go back there again.

About the neighbourhood
One thing that attracts me about Prantik and especially the the neighborhood in which Aikataan is situated is that the neighborhood is extremely safe. I have been visiting Prantik since my childhood days and I haven't seen anything bad happening anywhere. The property and the location is also 100% secure. So You don't have to worry about Your security anytime. Besides, there are a lot of places to visit and things to do in Santiniketan. One thing I can tell You and that is if You are looking to get a feeling of what the Indian countryside is like, You will get that in Prantik.

Each room comes with complementary breakfast. A full service cook is available on demand for lunch/snacks/dinner. Cab and guide services are available on demand. Entertainment facility is available in the house and we are currently working on the wifi. We will be providing wifi shortly. You can get around the neighborhood very easily using several commutes such as cab, toto, train and bus.
