Stayed with family 2 nights and 3 days. A great experience. Beautiful clean and well furnished cottages in the midst of rain forest of silver oak with black pepper creepers and coffee estate of Western Ghat. Excellent hospitality. Owners take personal care of the guests to make a homely stay. Excellent spread of food. Arrangements for sight seeing by jeep was very good. It has been a pleasant experience and looking forward to come again.
The place is not possible to locate on iphone users.
Not value for Money you spend there, you can get better places at same cost @ chikmagalur.
The owners are very stingy and new to the business may be, they think thrice before issuing a disposable glass or plate.
Only Veg food they serve, Non veg dishes they procure from out side and they charge bomb after adding their Margins @ 200%.
Coffee Bean Estate Villa/Homestay -
Situated in a place between Sakleshpura (part of Hassan district, Karnataka) and Chikamagalur (Chikamagalur district, Karnataka) is a breath of absolute fresh air for the uber cool uber users of the Urban city.
The homestay is surrounded by coffee plantations, jackfruit trees, plantations of various spices such as pepper.
The homestay had a personal garden that hosted a series of flowers which were a delight to look at early in the morning.
The host (also the son of the owners of the Homestay) Dhanush did a splendid job in terms of hospitality. He was considerate, courteous, kind and helpful with the guests and their travel/stay experience.
The food was brilliant on day one. The varieties of food included the best of South Indian dishes all homemade in the kitchen. Chandramma and aunty (helpers at home) were very sweet to talk to.
The house was red mud floored with an old fashioned architecture that reminded me of my grandma's house.
The place has no signal whatsoever. It's a signal free area which enables/forces you to throw away your phone for a game of ball with friends and family.
We played the good old lock and key along with badminton and throw ball. Sports equipment are provided by the homestay. You can choose from football, basketball, cricket as well.
We also witnessed something beautiful apart from all the above mentioned details. There were at least six to seven elderly couples (young at heart). They were atleast over 60 years of age and they had come on a trip and were seen living every moment of their lives in the homestay. We saw them take group selfies, playing throwball, attempting to start a bon fire and discussing places to explore in Sakleshpura. Inspiration of friendship goals poured into us.
So cool no?
I usually don't take efforts to write a review on any place, but this place has left me speechless. The beautiful arrangements and the surrounding is worth the stay. The cleanliness, ambience and friendly staff is what I would rate 10 on 10. Keep it up guys. Surely looking forward to come here again!!!!
