You are one with nature here
My wife and I didn’t expect much when we made the booking at Aastha Home stay for fifteen days. We were prepared to move out and seek some other place. It turned out to be one of the best fortnights of our life.
The accommodation was most comfortable and extremely relaxing compared to our vacations all over the world. It is calm and quite with only sound of birds and breeze to disturb its tranquility. You are one with nature here.
The panoramic views all around are divine with colours of the landscape changing from day to day and every hour of the day. The walks on the tracks nearby are enchantingly beautiful and invigorating. We had plenty of fresh air and fresh fruits too. This homestay is located in a junction of four village roads and the nearest market place, Fagu, is just one and half Km.
The most striking part of our stay was the hospitality of Shri Naresh Sharma and his wife Nisha. The food she served was simple but very testy and sometimes we were treated to the exquisite Himachali dishes. The simplicity of the hosts won our heart and it was an experience of living in an extended family. We are looking forward of coming back next year.

An unforgetting experience of sunrise and sunset
Staying in 'Aastha' is unique experience of home and nature's beauty. An unforgetting experience of sunrise and sunset. Especially homely treatment of Sh. Nareshji and his family members will be in memory for a long time. Locales like Fagu and Hatu peak are memorable life time experiences. The beauty of Man and Nature combination reflects in both. One should visit Shimla and Fagu at least once in life and benefit in enlightening candles in one's heart. Our heartfelt thanks to Nareshji and Astha Home Stay members. We recommend to select 'Aastha' and get an opportunity to witness beauty in Man and Nature and enrich one's personality.
With best wishes and compliments to 'Aastha' inmates.

My family enjoyed the stay
I have visited most of the tourist places all over the Asia and Europe and I also belongs to the land of natural beauty, but got the different natural beauty, culture and hospitality. This is really a home away from home. My family enjoyed the stay. I wish to visit again and I wish Mr. Naresh and his family a very bright future in the tourism and hospitality industry.

We'll be back soon
When I heard about Aastha Homestay, I approached it with the same city dweller kind of suspicious arrogance as we do to everything new. However, I am happy to say that I was proved wrong. Not only by the locales and natural beauty of the place, more so by the genuine love, compassion, hospitality and committed companionship of Mr. Sharma, Nisha and the kids. It always easy to write nice things about a place... but this one comes from the heart... We'll be back soon.

Talai is a most wonderful place
Talai is a most wonderful place, and more wonderful and most affectionate people are Mr. NK Sharma and his family who treated us in an extraordinary way. We felt more at home here with their hospitality. We wish them all the best.

We enjoy the apple gardens and vegetable farms
Like any other person we felt that staying away from main city would not be good, but given the insurance of my relative I had courage to come to Aastha Home Stay. It was really a nice cottage. Just keeping with its motto "Home away from home". We enjoyed the stay. Mrs. Nisha Sharma and Mr. NK Sharma were very good hosts. Mrs. Nisha cooks very good food. We enjoy the apple gardens and vegetable farms. Mrs. & Mr. Sharma are very nice people. There service was very nice. The cottage gives a beautiful view of snow clad mountains and the valley below. It was a homely stay. If you want to enjoy your stay in Himachal this is the place.

I love to visit again and again
I have visited lots of cottages and hotels but the best I can easily say is Aastha Home Stay. As the name says Aastha Home Stay, one feels he is in home only, nowhere else.
I love to visit again and again.

A fantastic and unique experience
Staying at Aastha has been a fantastic and unique experience, that we would never be without. We have felt like family, and felt that Aastha Homestay is definitely a home away from home. We have enjoyed every minute. The nature is fantastic. It has been one of the best experiences in India.

This was sheer bliss!!!
I was at the verge of a nervous breakdown and needed this holiday so very badly but had no idea where to go. My son just picked up the phone and talked to Sh. NK Sharma at Fagu. He had stayed here and loved it.
And after that I was put on a bus to Shimla by one son and received and looked after by another.
This was sheer bliss!!!
I have acquired a "home away from home" and they have acquired a surrogate mother. Bless you Nisha, Naresh and the 4 little angles.
