are you allowed to venture on the highway with the 'L' board on your ride?
No problem about that @ HRH - RR, if Naresh is uncomfortable one of you guys who are planning to loll about in the back seat can take over.

Also another thing i never understood was Sip n Dip shows up on Country club website. Until now , i was under the impresssion that the place is a shack built by a local.But surely if Country club has taken it up , then there must be some level of standard that they maintain! Country Club
LOL Arun, it was never a shack but romeyo mentioned something about the use(s) that the place was being put to.

With our gang there, all the shady guys would leave ASAP, so that should be ok too.

Guys, here's the update : 2 guest houses and 1 resort .

1st Guest house : All to ourselves but it has only 2 bedrooms. If this option is taken then the ladies can take up the 2 bedrooms and the gents will take up the Living room with mattresses which will be arranged by the owners. This is on the beach itself.This has been confirmed as backup plan.

2nd Guest House
:This is the ITC Guest house . Its actually booked from the 25th Evening but we know the people who have booked 3 rooms. They are willing to give these 3 rooms on 25th for our usage.

3rd option : Jolly Homes resort.Mr Fixit has not yet got back to me in this regard but instead he has arranged the 1st choice. He's still working on Jolly Homes and other known guest houses to see what will be free during the 25th weekend for 16 people min!

4th : Sip n Dip as per my Dad was good about 3-4 yrs back and is indeed shady now . Now i dont know what standards my dad is taking as the yardstick , but I've said no to the choice although its available .

That's some cool work Arun. I am game for Option 1 or Option 2

Btw, i dont see more than 2-3 ladies accompanying us. So actually, 1 room for them should be enough.

Also, I am quite sure all of us have not much problems in adjusting on mattress as long as an AC is available

To my mind - there is no question about it - Only option 1. No neighbours to disturb etc. Nothing like having a place all to ourselves. As long as we have A/c. matress and some sheets i.e. if we do not crash out on the beach - it is perfect!

Think about it guys - a place on the beach which is all ours or something else...............

Excuse me gentlemen , but by my calculation there are a clear 2 weeks i.e. 14 days or half a month between the 25th and 9th. So what is the problem with doing both?!

Cheers

@Ravvs, I told Arun the same. Less rooms, no problem. No bed, no problem, AC-problem solved.

Most importantly, we should be close to the whoosh whoosh sound of the waves, what can beat that feeling?

Well , the guest house is booked for us definitely , so there are no issues there.

Even with the AC and what not, i know for sure once you guys experience the sea breeze on the terrace , you'll be pullling out the mattresses to be laid up there and to experience a morning sunrise over the horizon? I know Ive chosen my spot for the where i want to sleep(as if) , lol .

Fantasies apart , I will be getting resort confirmation by this evening. So I wont indulge all you guys into selecting from the choices and will declare the venue soon :-) . Rest assured that it will be chosen on few factors

a) Freedom to scream
b) Freedom to run wild onto the sea shore ...... and the waves
c) Freedom of mind .... the ones who want to loose control shall be allowed to as long it doesn't spoil everybody's evening.

Default Phew - what a relief!

I logged on after two days fully expecting half a dozen pages of absolute delight. I was a tad disappointed, but also relieved, to find only a few posts.

LOL yeah!! We can do one in hounour of the newbie - the GTX! I can assure you guys that the car is an absolute delight. I had a wide grin on my face right through that 700 Km drive from aamchi Mumbai!! IfI can have a few kinks ironed out before this week-end we can change the 'Laura' in the list to 'GTX'.
