Cinnabar is a slice of heaven in the hills of Southern India. We cannot recommend staying here highly enough. Bala and Vasu are the kindest hosts and made us feel immediately at home in their beautiful house, and were charming fireside companions in the evenings....More

Cinnabar homestay is the perfect model of what a homestay should be. Clean, well-maintained, comfortable rooms set a few feet away from the hosts' own dwelling; veritable feasts for dinner each night made with love and attention to detail; dessert served in the hosts' living...More

About
Description
Peaceful gardens well planted with fruit trees surround this unique Kodaikanal house. Two sunny rooms with private baths, detached from the main house, make the stay truly memorable."Where you feel like a More personal friend, not just a guest". Relax...On the porch, or perhaps in the quiet of the living room where a log fire awaits you on chilly days. A selection of books, newspapers and magazines is at hand.Set away from the bustle of the town centre, the lush lawns provide many places to relax in the sun or just savor quiet moments alone...Wander through the garden escorted by a playful dog and see unusual organic fruit and vegetables growing.A delectable full western breakfast using home made cheeses, jams, breads and more is served at 8:30 am in the dining room. A gourmet dinner, using locally grown produce is served in the dining hall at 7:30 pm. Less

Response from BalakrishnanKodai | Property representative |
We are a small two room homestay ideal for two couples or a family of four and hence do not have different types of rooms.
