A perfect getaway from the Srinagar city. Breathtaking view from the houseboat and the service was excellent. Everything from the ambiance of the houseboat to the meals served was on point. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone travelling to Kashmir! Surely looking forward to going back to this houseboat in our next visit.
We had a stay of 4 days with family. It was wonderful experience which is beyond words. The hospitality provided by the team which lead by Maqsood Bhai was awesome. We were received with a warm welcome and had nice trip in Shikari on day one. The rooms were very beautiful, clean, and have all the facilities required. All the staffs were there at our service as required. All staffs were very courteous and were there for the help up on request. The review, will not be complete, without saying a word about Maqsood Bhai.. the proud owner and care taker of the house boat. He was such a fantastic host with all potential on how to make the guests happy with all possible ways. Beyond as customers, Maqsood Bhai taken care of each and every aspects of our stay with all helps required. Thank you Maqsood Bhai for the excellent hospitality rendered from your side.
Special mention required about food also, as it was tasteful and prepared as per the demand. We had requested different Kashmiri flavours and the cooking team were ready to prepare and supply. Thanks to Wasim for providing a delightful and delicious variety of Kashimiri foods. And the Chacha, a very bumble person who is provided us Tea and Qahwa any time when we asked. A great personality :)
Definitely Jacquiline is highly recommended for those who are planning to visit Kashmir for calm, peaceful stay where you can relax at its best.

The very tasty food was served to us by Wasim and Akbar Chacha. They took really good care of us.The houseboat is nicely done up with Kashmiri handicraft.It was beautiful and peaceful place. We had a great experience and highly recommend it to the tourists.
It was almost afternoon when I received warm welcome by chacha over the cold winds of lake. I along with my wife and seven years old daughter was overwhelmed with the beauty of Kashmir and the houseboat New jacquline .

Thanks management for making our tour delightful.
The two houseboats that they have on the ghat are well maintained. One houseboat caters to bigger family group and the other has two rooms. We stayed in a room that had an additional single bed for a kid and there was another room in our houseboat which had a couple staying there. The caretaker of the houseboat Maqsud was very polite and helpful. He was proactive in asking and arranging for things and the food was served nicely in a homely manner.
