Tikli Bottom is a modern Lutyens style four bedroom Indian haveli which is run as a private guest house. The courtyard and trees in the garden offer much recreational space, and shade in the hotter months.
It has the character of a hill station, being almost surrounded by hills, and lies less than 50 kms south of central Delhi in the state of Haryana, off the Delhi-Jaipur highway, nestling against the Aravali hills, and is 30 Kms and 45 minutes from the international airport. It is peaceful, quiet and most relaxing.
Four double bedrooms are offered to guests to live en famille with the owners, Martin and Annie Howard. No beds are more comfortable than ours; nobody's air is cleaner, so close to Delhi, no food more organic and tasty than ours; and nobody's views through the windows better - we are a soft landing on arrival in India, or as a tell-all-about-it safe haven before departing.
We are a destination, not a stepping stone - stay three nights to get the most out of us. There is plenty for the active to do, yet nowhere is better for doing nothing at all.
* At last we have wifi, though it is slowish; fine for e-mails, not so good for Streaming
