About Location

Shimla, is the capital city of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, located in northern India. It is bounded by Mandi and Kullu in the north, Kinnaur in the east, the state of Uttaranchal in the south-east, and Solan and Sirmaur to the south. The elevation of the city ranges from 300 to 6000 metres. Shimla is well known as a hub for India's tourism sector. It is among the top 10 preferred entrepreneurial locations in India.

In 1864, Shimla was declared as the summer capital of British India, succeeding Murree, northeast of Rawalpindi. After independence, the city became the capital of Punjab and was later named the capital of Himachal Pradesh. Shimla came into existence from 1st Sept,1972 on the reorganisation of the districts of the state. After the reorganisation, the erstwhile Mahasu district and its major portion was merged with Shimla. Its name has been derived from the goddess Shyamala Devi, an incarnation of the Hindu goddess Kali. As of 2011 Shimla comprises 19 erstwhile hill states mainly Balson, Bushahr, Bhaji and Koti, Darkoti, Tharoch & Dhadi, Kumharsain, Khaneti & Delath, Dhami, Jubbal, Keothal, Madhan, Rawingarh, Ratesh, and Sangri.

As a large and growing city, Shimla is home to many well-recognized colleges and research institutions in India. The city has a large number of temples and palaces. Shimla is also well noted for its buildings styled in Tudorbethan and neo-Gothic architecture dating from the colonial era.

Testimonial

The property takes you back into history. The staff and the decor further add up to the charm. 
We stayed at this charming cottage for 4 nights. The location is excellent - it gives you a serene location where you feel you are miles from some city. You can experience pin drop silence in the night. Yet its not that far off from Mall - just 15 min walk to Mall. It has ample parking within the complex. The gardens is very well maintained. We had breakfast and dinner included in our package. Food quality was excellent. 
Staff was very courteous and catered to our every need. I did visit several other cottages in Shimla and in my opinion this is definitely the best value place to stay in Shimla.Ashok Sobti - Delhi

Our team had rocking time here, Thanks to Jai and his courteous staff :)
It is one of the gems in terms of accommodation in a hill station like Shimla. I wish every hill station should have one such villa with such Courteous Staff.
Imagine having your own villa in the middle of Shimla valley for two days, in the morning you can enjoy morning tea and breakfast in beautiful garden of Marley Villa along with delicious breakfast prepared by Kala Aunty, Ram & Raju, in the evening time you can enjoy bonfire along with drinks and barbeque. We were having 5.1 speakers with us and we enjoyed music and dancing along with Bonfire which cannot be enjoyed even in big hotels especially when you are group of 16 Members.
Kala Aunty and Other two boys Ram and Raju always ready to serve you in best possible manner, you cannot expect such kind of treatment in over hyped commercial hotels in many hill stations. 
Detailing our experience in few points:1.Beautiful Structure that will take you to old world charm.2.Beautiful garden with three sitting areas.3.Big rooms with Carpets and wooden flooring.4.Comfortable Beds with Cozy Quilts.5.Clean and Modern Bathrooms with Branded Bath Kits6.Very Serene Location from Hustle Bustle of the City.7.Home cooked Meals that too as per your choice.8.Very near to Mall Road still peaceful.9.Motherly Vibes from Kala Aunty, She will take care of everything.10. The owner of the property always concerned about their guests which we experienced during our stay in Marley Villa.
Last but not least book at least for 4-5 days as we were not having enough time to spend in  Villa due to our 2 day planned itinerary. Thanks a ton for making our trip a unforgettable experience.J.D. Noida

It was a pleasant, peaceful time we had as a family this week. The accommodation was very comfortable coupled with good attention by the caretakers for all our valid needs, made us feel more like a home.
It was like a blessing that we finalised on this wonderful cottage in Shimla,afer searching thro' various option. The location of the property was the gem of all. Mindboggling view from the door step, big lawn with a well maintained gardening and a sitting area nicely dressed up with attractive lights can easily take large group of people and give them fun filled stay away from home.
Visitors can order what they want to eat; it will be prepared and served deliciously at the dotted time. That's our experience!This indeed a 'home away from home' certainly.  People who visit will have everlasting pleasant memory for their life time.P Balaji - New Delhi

This was a very unique experience. As my very first trip to Shimla it was a joy to be such a comforting environment. The staff were all very helpful and the quality of the stay was quite nice. Perhaps the best part about this cottage is the beautiful view of the valley from above!!!Sohil Bammi - California
