... and pasted a huge grin on my wife.
We went there for two nights: my wife and her parents, my mom, and me. The other reviews on TripAdvisor talk of the good food, great hosts, and a comfortable stay: this is all true, and the reality is much warmer & better. We've stayed in "coffee estate homestays" before, but this one stands out as a place to go to for a relaxing vacation. All of us had a good time at Jagale.
Our graceful hosts were there for us and also gave us our own space. Their dogs are playful and well-trained. The staff is friendly and responsive, the food is good, the rooms are comfortable, and the place is peaceful.
For those new to "homestays", remember your hosts have a life, too. When we arrived they were out but the staff took care of us and we settled in with a delicious lunch.
On getting there: the GPS took me to Nittoor. From there I called Ramesh and he guided me the rest of the way. I've put in my edit re the road to Jagale on Google Maps, but till it "takes", remember that Jagale Homestay is East of Nittoor, at 12.1264N,76.0754E coordinates, and correctly marked on both Wikimapia & Google Maps.
