I was a bit worried about how this home-stay experience will turn out considering my own age (79) and the fact that my wife and I have some food restrictions. The worry was needless. Our every need and concern was attended to by the Bala and Vasu, the remarkable couple who run this impeccably clean well-maintained and picturesque property at a very convenient location in Kodaikanal. In fact we were given not just ample hospitality but a virtual gourmet treatment. Add to that the pleasure of getting to know two most interesting persons with diverse interests and the effort they put into their cute farm!
We could not have asked for more!
