We stayed at Skanda Homestay when there were no other guests. The estate house is spread out with two or three cottages that have rooms for guests. There is a large space to play volleyball, a car park, and quarters for the those who work in the house, and they can spare a room for drivers too. Just in front...

The place is very well connected as its on the main highway, the estate is huge and it just gives a really good way to relax within the quite country. The management is very polite and the food is very homely and tasty.

Albeit peaceful but the place is far from the city. You can play badminton and volleyball on the two courts that they have. The manager said they have bonfire too but was unavailable as it was raining during the weekend. Madikeri is approx 45 mins away. Nearest ATM was ~9 KM.

A good weekend getaway option from Bangalore. Overall comfortable stay and very good food. Staff was very courteous and helpful. However, upkeep of the property was not to expected standards including rooms and linen. At the price point and available staff members - overall standard was expected to be much better. Also, location is too close to state highway leading...
