08/01/2015 It is never easy to say bye to a family that has opened their hearts to you. Mrs Ganga Cariappa and Mr Cariappa were such a joy to meet and a real treat to be with. I was in their home for one night and I can only understand the feelings of all those who have reviewed them (... More

By the time I had reached Mysore, it was at the end of my trip to India. After spending a few days at the Shanti Niwas BnB, I did not want to leave. Ganga and Cari were one of the most delightful couple I met during my trip, and their children Gagan and Suniana were an absolute pleasure to talk... More

My stay at Shanthi Miwas was a warm welcome. Such a wonderful family! I could stay talking and drink chai all day. Tea, Coffee & Biscuits was frequently offered, and I found they are such a great source of information. The area is in Sadartha Layout and their home is very close to a great dosa and almond milk cafe,... More

Thanks to Ganga and Cariappa for quickly responding and arranging for the stay in spite of our short notice (approx 10 mins). We were looking for a place to stay in the night during our long drive from Mangalore to Coimbatore, immediately after the phone call they helped us with an accomodation which helped us in relaxing and taking some...

I stayed with Ganga and Cary for 4 days this March, having luckily come across their home stay via a traveller recommendation. They welcomed me into their family immediately and the chats and fun we had was actually the highlight of my stay in mysore (although its a beautiful city!). I was travelling alone and practising yoga and they couldn't... More

Our plan was to stay 2 days in Mysore during our cycling-trip but in the end we stayed 4 days because Ganga and Cary were very hospitable and they gave us a lot of tips about what to see in Mysore. In their house we met Stephen who organizes cycle-tours in and around Mysore, vey nice to do. And Cary... More

The best things about this house stay is the quite area and the very friendly and helpful family. We stayed there for 6 nights and Ganga organised personal yoga lessons each morning which for us was really the best way to be introduced to it. The breakfast was very nice, and in the room we had enough privacy. The only... More

Yours hosts being good cannot compensate for a poorly maintained property. We stayed there for 8 nights and honestly it took, quite a bit of getting used to. If it was not for a medical treatment which I was undergoing, somewhere in the vicinity, I would have probably checked out the first night. Actually there is quite a bit which... More

It was a very nice stay at Shanti Nivas homestay. We stay here from 1st Nov to 3rd Nov 2013. The rooms are neat and clean and we were 5 friends who stayed here. The price was 500 INR per head per night and for that price the rooms were excellent. You can also get breakfast by paying 150 rs... More

To stay at Shanthi Niwas was such a special experience - mostly due to the extremely open, friendly and fun way of the host family. It is like you become part of their family for a few days but at the same time keep all the privacy and freedom you would like. We extremely enjoyed the delicious home-made breakfast, sat... More
