Been there with a fun group of friends and we had one of the best weekends at this place. Amidst the lush green surrounded by long trees, coffee and arecanut plantation. It was a peaceful place. They set up a firecamp for us.. Arranged for a loud music speakers with Bluetooth connect. Super tasty veg and non veg food and coffees at evening with lipsmacking snacks... All in all a great memory and feels attached with the place. Of all Mr. Tejasvi a well read advocate lawyer was a great host and guide to our mini treks and activities around. Thanks for hosting us in your place.

I traveled to the Chikmagalur in the month of June 2017. that was a family holiday trip. I booked my stay through reference. The location of the homestay was near to the homestay. There was a parking space available. The exterior and interior were good. The reception staff was cooperative. The room was clean and neat. The service was prompt. We used restaurant service for the food. The good was good. I like to suggest other travelers.

We visited Chikmagalur in the month of May 2017. That was a family holiday trip. I booked my stay through reference. That was a home-stay so reception was not available. The surrounding was full of greenery. The homestay was in nature. There was a sitting arrangement in front of the room. That was good to sit and chit-chat. They had given proper information. They had kept rooms clean and neat. The food was not good. They prepared for someone else and that was not good. The food was included in the package. They had told they will provide rain dance and fire camp but after asking they had provided only fire camp. The room has privacy. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was well maintained. The room was clean and spacious. There was a tea estate so for walking it was good. We reached there by own vehicle. There was a proper parking space available. The manager should provide proper hospitality at the check-out time too.

I went to Jungle green Home-stay last weekend . It was really above the expectation what we had . The service provided by them is really good with good food . Home-stay is located in heart of coffee estate where you will get exactly what you want and that is PEACE . Mr Tejaswi Who gave the warm welcome and will never forget the night sight seeing with high beam torch . And Last but not least Mr Rohit the Manager of home stay , The guy who took us to the home-stay when we stuck in mud . The way he has taken our XUV like dirt race we will never forget that ride . He is very humble guy who will take care of everything at your stay . I have so many thing to say but let me keep something for you to experience !!!

This is an amazing place to get a feel of living in a farm house in a beautiful remote estate. Thejas, the owner of the property and Rohith will pamper you with ultimate care. Whatever you ask them, they would never say no. Cook Chandru is a great guy, he will get whatever you ask for, however you ask for and whenever you ask for. Within few hours of check in they will make you feel like you own the place and will place no restrictions. There is a pond inside the property, right in front of the place where you would stay. Here you can go for fishing; we caught around 20 fish and cooked the same for dinner. For people who have been living in the city, you can have a wholesome experience of living in a jungle; you can see fireflies, hear peacocks and birds singing in the morning............. If you want to feel nature, this is the place to go. This property is located in the right place that many of the tourist spots like the Badra Wildlife Sanctuary, Mullayangiri hills etc are located in close proximity. Word of caution – this is not like an expensive resort where you would pay hefty amount of money and get a commercial service, uninterrupted power supply etc. Power break down is very common across Chikmagalur. The team at the Jungle Greens Homestay try hard to provide power supply with their generators and UPS boxes and make sure that the guests don’t suffer.

Truly a great experience; best home stay ever

6.6/7
Posted 13 Nov, 2014

Jungle Greens Home Stay is a cosy home stay tucked deep in the green coffee estates of Chikmagalur. It’s two km from Malandur village and 18 Km from Chickmagalur town. The owner, Mr. Tejaswi was a gracious and friendly host who took great trouble in making the guests stay a memorable experience. The staffs are equally courteous and helpful. I spent my weekend this November here, and I was totally satisfied with my stay. The food was great, service was commendable and the staff super friendly. They really knew how to make our stay comfortable. For Rs. 2000 a night - per person - for a log cabin (wooden house on stilts) with three meals, welcome drink, tea and snacks, I thought, was a steal. A dormitory in the main house was even cheaper at Rs. 1600 per person and a large deluxe room was for Rs.1800. The single wooden cottage set bang in the middle of the coffee plants was, to me, the best of the three options. The cabin was fairly large with a sit-out and a clean toilet with decent sanitary fittings. A wooden staircase led to the cottage. There was a backdoor that led straight to the plantation. A neat feature of the cottage was that the double bed could be folded up against the wall flush, and the extra space was ideal for entertaining extra guests. Mr Tejaswi told me, he planned to build more cottages since this one was very popular with the guests and was always booked. The food was Malnad style with chicken as the main dish for non-veg guests. Pork and mutton made in traditional Chickmagalur style with aromatic spices, was available on demand. I opted for pork at night, but both pork and chicken was served as well and I didn't have to pay extra for pork. For the journey and to take home, I ordered 2 kg Pork @ Rs 350 per Kg. Veg food was also available. Breakfast was mainly Idily, dosa and sheera. The Bhadra National park is just 11 km from here. Jeep safari was available for Rs 400 per person. Other highlights are the four hills, waterfalls, trekking and white-water rafting. The Bhadra Dam is close by. Kemmangundi Hill Station is a must see and is about 40 km. For the price and the super experience, this place is highly recommended. But please be aware this is not a fancy resort with outdoor activities but a sort of rustic homestay where you unwind in tranquil surroundings and experience nature in all its diversity and absorb the Malnad estate culture, home life, hospitality and warmth. For thrill seekers there are numerable resorts and hotels who organize actives and have conducted tours to all hotspots at a price that’s three to four times this place. Mr. Tegaswi can however, organize outside jeeps to take you sightseeing at an additional cost (fixed price set by private operators). He wills also tailor-make a trip or activity best suited for you, your priorities and interests. Also be aware that being in the vicinity of the forest, there are bound to be creepy crawlies and bugs. Folks especially ladies who have an aversion to crickets, moths, beetles, cicadas, leeches and slugs, beware. If you can't live with nature and its bugs, stay at home. Also, like most home-stays with guests from different backgrounds and cultures, there is bound to be a little noise towards the evenings when the folks get together by the fireside and sing, joke, laugh, make merry with music and dance in myriad languages and styles. Please take this in your stride and accommodate. This will ensure a truly memorable experience for all. After 10 pm the host ensures cessation of all music and noise, though activities can continue both outside and in the rooms. Just a note of caution: The 1 km approach road to the home-stay is a little tricky, especially during monsoons and should be negotiated with care. Do the stretch slowly on 1st and 2nd gear and you should be fine.

This was our first time at a home-stay and we were a bit apprehensive. But turned out to be a very nice experience. Set in the middle of a coffee plantation, this was my imagination of a typical Chikmaglur home. The home-stay is run by very hospitable folks and they strive hard to make us feel at home. Overall it was a pleasant trip for the family.

I stayed at the Estate Villa at Jungle Greens, with my family. The location was stunning with a 180 degree view of the forest. We had a nice quiet vacation, with long walks in the plantations and playing badminton/cricket etc in the front yard, which is huge. We had an attendant who helped with any small/big thing we needed. The facilities are good. No pretense at sphistication like the star hotels but everything you need is right there. The food was excellent, with a fair amount of variety. The host family extened us excellent hospitality. They arranged for a new year party for all the guests on the 31st, with no extra expense to any of us. The front and back yard of the estate villa can be developed - trees, plants and some grass would make the place even better. Hammocks would be ideal for lazing and gazing at the wonderful forest and the birds.
