By far, one of the best experiences I had in a homestay. We travelled as a family (me, my spouse and my parents). The beautifully done cottage amidst the coffee plantation is a treat to the eye. Even the decor is very aesthetically appealing. It's just the perfect resting place, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
We had initially taken a package consisting of breakfast and accommodation only, but ended up ordering another meal per day as well. The food served was way more than we could manage to eat. We loved all of it, especially the desserts and non-veg items. The fridge and shelves provided an added attraction, being filled with fruits, cold drinks, chocolates and snacks.
I had a memorable B'day celebration at Vindhya's. Mr. Jayanth arranged for a cake at very quick notice and we had a very nice time.
Since we were not aware of many car agencies around the place, we asked for Mr. Jayanth's help regarding a car with driver. He arranged for a car for our trip starting right from Mysore. Mr. Saru, our driver is a very punctual person. He made sure we went to all the important places and helped us with lot of information regarding the places we visited.
Finally, we visited Mr. Jayanth and Mrs. Remya at their home and were treated with some beautiful stories and views of the plantation.
We would definitely recommend staying at Vindhya's homestay and enjoying the hospitality. It's just home away from home. There are absolutely no second thoughts about that :)
