I live in the suburbs of Mumbai. More specifically at a 10 minutes drive from the international airport. The closest station is Andheri which is about 30 minutes from the southernmost part of Bombay (where most of the touristic locations are located) and the station is 10 minutes from our place.
I have a spare room in the house with a double bed, a separate bathroom outside the room (still private though) and wi-fi access in the house. You can use the kitchen whenever you want to except if you are using it in the night after 11 and before 7 I'd request you to be quiet. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, an oven among other things. Also, you can play badminton/tennis in the backyard in the mornings or evenings. I live on the ground floor, so although there is no elevator you wont have to drag your luggage up a flight of stairs.
