I stayed with wife, two kids and my parents here from 11/01/15 to 13/01/15. I would highly recommend it to any one who is looking for a calm serene place to just RELAX AND ENJOY. The staff is friendly and always asks your preference for food. Believe me, food is heavenly. Dont forget to ask to serve pork which is... More

This place is about at least 2 hours drive from madikeri. The surrounding is made up of plantations so it is a very quiet environment. We were a group of 9,guys and girls. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The food was good and the owner made sure to ask about our preferences.

We had the whole house to ourselves. we were three families with kids. we enjoyed our stay there. it is right next to the highway so the odd truck horn will be a distraction. The property is well located with nagerhole, irupu falls, dubare being nearby. The roads are not great from mysore. However, the roads in the kodagu district... More

We spent a weekend in April at Skanda Homestay. After a scenic but bumpy drive, we arrived at the charming estate house. Room - Large, with an antique feel. Bathrooms are large and adequately appointed. We were not the only occupants of the room - several tiny black bugs (harmless) appeared in the night, apparently very common in the rainy... More

Skanda is our best find of a homestay in Coorg. A quick drive from Mysore, Skanda's location at Tithimathi is at the entrance to the Nagarhole National Park which allows lots of activities to be fitted in. From walks, fishing, bird-watching, to taking a guided tour of the coffee processing unit, it is all available within the large estate. Apart... More

It is a decent place to stay, but I wouldn't rate it as worth the money that we paid. Due to the conditions of the road (which is extremely bad), I would say that the location is not good and there are not too many things that you can do around. Food was good, but the rooms (bathrooms, bed, linens)... More
