“Just about OK”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

Reading the reviews about this place, we were really looking forward to spending couple of days at Balaji Villa. The place had 3 rooms and 2 cottages. We were put up in one of the cottages which looked pretty nice however, after staying there for a few hours we noticed the bed was strewn with rat poo (there was faint smell of rat pee in the bed as well). The care takers swiftly moved us to the other cottage. Given the forest area, we had a lot of insects visiting us in the night (switching off the lights, couple of coils helped)
The swimming pool was another disappointment. it was too small - fit for kids i'd say. and it wasn't all that clean to even take a dip. Although we were looking forward to the pool, we avoided it during our stay.
The food was great (although the lunch and dinner were priced a little on the higher side), the family was cheerful and accommodating.

Room Tip: Avoid the cottages if you are not too keen about the insects in the night.

One of the best home stays I have ever stayed in. The experience was beyond what we had expected - in terms of service, food and the rooms. Very clean and pleasant surroundings. I will definitely be going back with friends and family.

Room Tip: For couples the cottages are better whereas the rooms are good for families.

I had a pleasant stay in Balaji Villa, coorg. The concept is truly homestay with green forest surrounding the villa. A very well maintained, clean and food serve was delicious. It is located very close just 200 mts diversion from BLR-Madekeri highway. Special thanks to people maintaining this property. Well suited for family holiday.

Room Tip: Advance booking would help.

It was a great place for those who love silence midst a forest. Chilled nights midst a summer, clear blue sky above, Excellent service by staff and tasty food makes it even more interesting. Would love to come back some day, for sure. :)
