We planned the stay thinking it to be eventful. But it was completely boring. No electricity most of the time. Shocker was no mobile connection except BSNL. Should have been informed before so that we could have planned accordingly. Food was good but variety was not much. Asked for coffee in the evening and service staff told he is bringing... More

This was my first time at a homestay and must say I was blown away! The first thing you notice about this place is the pictureque view of the mountains, then you realise that you are truly in the lap of nature, completely secluded. The only sounds are that of the birds, crickets and the stream! I could spends weeks... More

Stayed there last weekend for couple of days and never felt like I am away from my home. Giri sir is a down to earth person and gets engaged with all the guests very well. He also guides what to do while you stay there. Good food by his wife kept our taste buds happy as well.

The house itself is a 300 year old typical South Indian house. The rooms are simple and basic but immaculately maintained. The courtyard of the house is beautiful. Around the house you can go for...

Been there with friends. Hosts are very nice folks and very hospitable. Good food, great rooms, awesome view and bonfire under open skies. Cant be better then that. Location of the homestay is the biggest plus. It is some distance from the main road and have to drive through jungle to reach the house. A night stroll on this road... More
