“So welcoming”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Although we went in July (monsoon), and it rained a lot . the hospitality was wonderful. Tim and Diana were very thoughtful and helpful, the accommodation comfortable and the surroundings tranquil. Lovely place for children. Thank you so much and we look forward to returning in the summer months.

I returned to VV for my second visit from 2nd to 6th July 2013, along with my wife and two grown up children. As experienced during my last stay at VV, the stay was extremely comfortable, hosts were ever helpful and gracious in every way one could expect. The stay at VV was absolutely comfortable & memorable and the local cuisine we chose for breakfast every day is a must for every guest to VV.
Diana and CC are absolutely amazing hosts and I am sure VV will grow from strength to strength based on their willingness to be look into guests needs and their attitude of making every guest of theirs at home!!
The monsoon package at VV is a steal and well worth a lot more!
Well done Diana and Cc keep up the excellent work and see you at VV soon when time permits me to take off on another break!!

I went with a friend and the Coorg area was a really good choice in June in South India as it was really lovely and warm but not too hot. It was monsoom so it rained a few times each day - which was really beautiful. The owners of VV - Diana and Tim are lovely welcoming people. We stayed in a cottage about 5 min walk from the main house and rooms. The cottage is really lovely and comfortable. We had our own kitchen. The owners sometimes gave us a lift into town which was very generous and having tea at their place overlooking the plantion was beautiful. The owners helped us with advice on day trips and drivers to take us. We went for the day to an elephant sanctuary, white water rafting and to a buddhist temple which I highly recommend. On the plantation the staff and Tim took us on walks and explained things about the culture and vegetation. It is very lush and many fruit trees besides the coffee bushes. We also went on walks on the property beside a stream with an amazing waterfall. Beware of leeches tho - you need to have gum boots or closed shoes sox and long pants. Overall a really restful beautiful holiday.

Hey Orna, now Doc, to us. Josh an U really showed us the 'way'. Loved your company and we were glad u chose to stay in Coorg and at VV- Rustica. I believe you enjoyed your stay with us , our Coffee Plantation, the Water Falls and our lakes, but most of all, I believe I enjoyed the way you loved 'Nature'. Ah, the Leech is part of the COORG MONSOON PACKAGE!!!!! Thankyou for sending me your CD on' Kabbalah Dreaming'.

We were 2 couples & 3 kids on a driving tour. Our visit to coorg was the centerpiece of a lovely trip planned in a hurry.We were fortunate to connect with Thimayya and our 4 night stay in cottage Rustica at Victorian Verandaz, was everything we imagined it would be and more. Diana & Thimayya were warm,helpful and gracious hosts. We had a lovely time tramping around the estate with Thimayya personally and his staff,who were as welcoming and helpfull as our host.The Kids learnt and saw a lot,the idiot box was'nt required. If it's peace tranquility & green vistas with lovely food & folk you are looking for,go right ahead.Would recommend it to All. Ours was a memorable time.
A special mention on Diana's cooking...Awesome!!

We booked cottage with attached kitchen for 1 night to check how it feels to cook and stay in home stay with coffee plantation. We had great fun and cooked food and had amazing time.

Owners are very good and friendly. You can walk into more than 100 acre plantation and a amazing waterfall inside the plantation. Since rains has started, wait for few days and then can enjoy the tracking. I you like to spend time relaxing, then it is a ideal place.

We were absolutely sure we didn't care for resorts or hotels when we visited Kodagu.This long awaited trip we wanted nothing else but a cozy homestay.After a brief search we settled for VV- and what an experience this has been!I am not sure whether Kodagu delighted us more or the VV!Thimaiah and Diana - your perfect genial hosts- pamper you with their affable hospitality- and the home cooked Kodava delicacies! The estate is all green serenity- all you hear sitting in the veranda is soft chirping of birds; frogs take over come dusk, but the tranquility prevails, as time seemingly comes to a halt! At the end of the day you didn't want to end, you retire to the cozy cottage bed only to start afresh the next morning- inhaling the crisp air with the Kodagu coffee aroma! When your visit here has to end, you go home with a new friendship- with Kodagu, and with your hosts-Thimaiah and Diana...
