"Serene place with comfortable stay & best food"

6.0/7
Posted 1 year ago

This is the third time we are visiting Coorg. We visited in the middle of July 2015, best time with incessant rains, drenching the Western Ghats, resplendent with Greenery, surrounded by Forests, Coffee/Tea Estates, Full flowing Cauvery River. This is the first time we are staying in Serene Homes and the best ever so far in our case. From the time we started our journey from Bangalore, Navya had been on the call enquiring throughout, about our safe journey to Serene Homestay (Which is in interior South Coorg). Approach roads throughout has been quite good barring very small patches. Prakash greeted us personally as soon as we reached the HS, in the night and they had made all arrangements for our comfortable stay. This place is in the midst of a Coffee Estate (advisable to use Google Navigation to get there). Approach drive through forest on one side and estates on the other is also enjoyable, frequented by Elephants. In fact we had a sighting of Elephant crossing the road on our approach to Serene Homes in the night. Rooms were spacious enough to accommodate 7 of us, clean and comfortable. Very responsive servants. Variety, quality and taste of food was excellent. Water Rafting places is nearby (approx. 20-30 mins by drive). Nice Rafting experience with family and friends. Initially some of us had hesitation but, with trained professionals, the experience was awesome and memorable. Looking forward for more such outings. Special thanks to Prakash, his friend Dilip and Water Rafting Nitin and team for their help when we had some issues with our vehicle. Last but not the least, friendly dog Buddy, loved especially by kids. Overall the entire stay was very nice. Prakash and Navya hospitality was excellent in the true tradition of famed Coorg hospitality. Highly recommended.

"Relaxing stay & awesome food"

6.0/7
Posted 10 months ago

It was a quick plan for a Christmas outing to Coorg and almost every resort/homestays were full. Luckily we got accommodation in Serene Homestay. We were a group of 3 couples with 3 kids and we had our own apprehensions as it was a hurried call. But upon reaching Serene Homestay we were relaxed and excited. Even if it was December, weather was dry and warm. But the travel through Nagarhole National Park was scenic and we enjoyed every bit driving through the forest. The homestay is located inside a huge coffee estate and we were impressed at the well-maintained property. The rooms including the bathrooms were clean. There was a small kids play area where kids enjoyed a lot. Apart from that there is a small basket ball court. But the highlight was the small stream down the property and we including kids enjoyed a lot playing in the cold freezing water. The walk through the mud road going down to the stream through the coffee estate was rejuvenating. We reached the homestay afternoon and planned to go to Iruppu falls in the evening, but just preferred staying back in the homestay relaxing. The dinner was splendid and they served more than enough which we could have. The host already took our preference and we preferred the local flavor with the Coorg special pork curry, which was indeed splendid and we devoured every bit of it. Next day breakfast too was good. We wanted to spend more time in homestay, but our travel plan was packed so we had to leave the homestay after breakfast. For our next visit to Coorg for sure, we will not add anything to our itinerary just a relaxing stay at Serene Homestay. A must visit and stay in Coorg.

"By far the best homestay we visited so far"

6.9/7
Posted 6 months ago

I was looking for a quick getaway and I was constantly hunting for suitable options. One of my colleague's suggested to try Serene Homestay. I immediately booked and was hoping that I will be able to enjoy the holiday with my family. We had gala time in the homestay, great food, fantastic hospitality, superb hosts, simple but perfect amenities and to top it all very clean environment. I would definitely recommend this place to those who wants to get away from the city rush and want to spend some peaceful time with their loved ones. I would request the hosts to introduce lunches in the afternoon as well at extra host to complete the icing on the cake. Note: 1) Lunch is not provided so you will have to go fetch the same yourselves in the nearby restaurants (Cafe Robusta and few hotels in Kutta village area). Costs are on the moderate side but not good ambience. Food was OK though. 2) There is a small stream nearby to the homestay (300mtrs far), do not miss this place but do avoid going very early or late evening as wild animals visit this stream for water. 3) You will be provided with a soap and towels, you will have to remaining sanitary stuff. 4) Even though there was a TV in the common area it was not functional (I won't complain though)

"Home away from home"

6.5/7
Posted 11 months ago

Situated in a beautiful coffee estate in a small town called Kutta in Coorg district, Serene homestay is a home away from home. Its an ideal location for a medium size group of 12-15. Thats because if you have that size group, you will get the whole homestay for yourself. Big courtyard in front of homestay which serves as car parking, short pitch cricket ground (they provide you with bat and ball), basketball court (basket ball is provided) and probably as coffee drying yard at some point of the year. Extremely courteous hosts. Owners will receive you themselves and take care of all your needs. Everything that they can. Clean rooms, clean toilets, clean bedsheets, clean pillow covers, clean towel and clean blankets add to the extremely good experience of staying here. To top it you have extremely comfortable mattress and pillows. Hygienic and tasty food that doesn't go heavy on your stomach. And they have power backup as well. Everything is great except for one. They don't provide lunch and the town doesn't have much options. So, incase you have kids and elderly people with you, do make some arrangements for them. You can try requesting the owners and most certainly they might oblige. Anyone who stays here should go down to the private stream that flows through the coffee estate. Also you should visit Irpu falls which is 8 kms from the homestay. If you can, walk to the falls from homestay. Walk is amazing as you almost see half of the town, inhale fresh air and get to take some amazing photos. To top it all there is almost no traffic. Buy fresh wines and honey from the town market. Extremely good honey at 3/4th the price of big brands. Haven been here twice in last 1 year and if given a chance, I would go again. Best time to visit according to me is towards the end of monsoon.

"Nice play to relax"

6.6/7
Posted 1 year ago

The home stay is located in coffee gardens, wholly owned by the couple owners. The place has private stream, walking area, play area for children, basket ball court, open courtyard for breakfast, flowers, etc which we didn't find in others. As we had gone to take rest and laze around for couple of days, it shorted our requirement. There are some locations like wild life sanctuary, irupu falls near by which can be visited if you get bored. The local stream is good to enjoy a bath in private. The rooms are on first floor, well kept, clean and also there are two open yards to dine, see TV, laze in sunshine etc. There is purified drinking water facility and also 24 hour hot water availability. You get the best food prepared and also local cuisines are available. The service is very good. The food is tasty. The owners (mr. Prakash & mrs. Navya) take personal interest from starting to end of the trip so that we are satisfied. We enjoyed the trip. Especially my daughter was very happy. We request the owners to provide lunch (chargeable) if requested as only breakfast and dinner are included in the tariff.
