A 3 day trip at this place was a truly awesome experience. Mr. Dhruva welcomed us to this cozy place which is situated in the midst of hills and plantations around. Meticulously done up apartments, superb hospitality and warmth is what we needed and what we got when we went there. Coorg food is very good here and the quality... More

A really disgusting place. The rooms were very damp, smelling of fungus, alcohol, vomit and even faeces in some places. When this was reported to them, they guy attending to us said that it was because the room was closed for a long time, and it should be okay if we left the room open for 20 mins and we... More

A decent homestay, away from the city located amidst green surroundings. Value for money and the staff were friendly and co-operative. Do call them before reaching here, since mobile signal are bit weak at the place. You can view the hill surroundings from a telescope which is available at request. Aravindan.K

I stayed in Vanavihar Homestay where food was good, sight seeing was awesome. One must stay in a home stay, estates, or resort in Madikeri to feel this green, cold hill station. Home stays are really cheap and good. I recommend this place Vanavihar Homestay to all my friends who have a real thirst for nature.

The food given is of very poor quality. Can't compare to even those available on roadside. The owner has no knowledge of what a homestay is all about. The room is not that clean ( dont go by photos advertised in the website). Overall I would advice travellers to avoid this homestay.
