Homestay next to wild elephant corridor

Ever heard of a house even elephants like visiting? You might just see one drinking water from the garden pool of the house as you laze on the hammock next to your room. This homestay is not just a homestay but a home away from home. Located about 240 kms away from Bangalore and 92 kms away form Mysore in the middle of 20 acres of coffee, pepper and orange plantation, the homestay is as refreshing as the beautiful scenery around.

After staying and working in various places in India and abroad as marketing professionals Viju and Nimi now live with their two dogs (Jomo and Viva) in their ancestral home in Coorg.

As hosts of this homestay since 2005, they offer guests their warm hospitality, interesting experiences and a variety of cuisines. The guests have never-ending options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, the reason being Nimi's interest and expertise in cooking. An avid bike rider Viju can take his guests round the estate and let them deal with the fresh breeze as they hold on to the bike.

The homestay has three spacious rooms, two on ground floor and one on first floor with attached bathrooms. For those guests, who like to cook their own food there is even an option of a separate open kitchen. The ambience provides a comfortable homely stay through comfortable cushions, hammock, magazines, board games, wind chimes and small miniatures in and around the guest rooms. The unique point of the homestay is its dining area- Diner Gazebo. It is a hexagonally structured dining area with poles and a traditional Coorg roof holding it down. It is an attractive set-up with beautiful gardening around which makes it look like a part of the nature come to this homestay and experience nature, tranquility and beautiful Coorg culture all in one place.

there is no value for money in this holiday homestay \'elephant corridor\'. they have charged 350 per meal and absolutely there is no value for the amount they charged. no amenities available. host comes every 10 minutes and gives some shock like no electricity, no water and elephant can surround any time. it was more of fearful stay then enjoyment. there was no power for 2 days and no generator, or back up available. for the local sight seeing we had to depend on the host, and the cab driver charged around 3,500/- for the local sight seeing that too for an old ambassador car. th quality of food provided was worst, and they charged 350/- per meal without any quality food. No eateries available in the vicinity and have to travel for atleast 8 km to reach the town where there are few hotels available. had a very very bad experience despite spending around 8,000 rs for holiday home booking

Fabulous Experience !! The experience was fabulous. The hosts were simply amazing and made us feel at home. I am absolutely not wrong in saying the 24 hours that we spent at the home stay was fantastic and one which we all unanimously want to do again.
