Please do not send me your phone number and expect call back. Airbnb does not allow to exchange phone numbers or e-mail id till reservation is made. When you send me your phone number or e mail id it comes hidden. Please print directions from google maps, google fuschia kotagiri. Cabin 7 is small and in very wooded area, forest I grew around here. If you don’t want to be in Forrest surrounded by trees then may be this one is not for you.
We offer nine beautiful cabins with attached baths for nature lovers & health conscious travelers alike. Also its a paradise for bird watchers. If you have any health issue that prevents you from walking short distances apx 300 meters on walk way , this isn't the place for you. Each cabin varies from 1500 to 2500 per night and provides accommodation for two people not three. At one point in time this entire area was internationally deemed as the second best climate in the world after Pasadena, California. Gone those days and it will get worst. This place 'Fuschia' (named after the beautiful non indigenous flower in a bell shape) happens also to have many of these flowers in a huge spectrum of colors. There is a Hindu temple which is right next to parking lot, over a period of time local farmers have planted tea on the road, this causes an inconvenience to walk, but at the same time it's a little historic reflecting it's original state. You have to walk 10 min from the parking lot on a nice scenic trail to reach the cabins (I love calling this an automatic tread mill). But once again if you have difficulty walking also if your are city person there is nothing here for you. You will be bored from surroundings and regret on your decision of coming here. By the same token if you love grandeur of nature and don't want to spend too much money then you will be in love at first sight. There are no shops and restaurants around but aren't you sick of them? Anyway these cabins are Large, Medium and small with attach very clean baths, each cabin got king size beds, one small cabin with smaller size bed but two can cuddle. Also this is not the place where you want to measure the size of the cabin but vastness of outside beauty. Also each bath got hot shower with low pressure, bucket bath is way to go with geyser heated water. This place is zero star, to me this star ranking system is good for cities. In old days there were no star system and people live quite nice lives in villages compare to artificial life we are pushing ourselves into in cities. This is back to basics concept and coming here you are going back in time. Jack London, Shakespeare and list goes on who lived in simple cabins or cottages, which probably helped sharpened there brains. Anyway bathrooms got color combination tiles, granite, high end plumbing fittings, very colorful wash basins which I picked up from Thailand. You can also enjoy Gazebo/Sun room just to kick back or do nothing all day and rest after that in the evening by the fire side. For wild life lovers watch heard of Bison's, lots of birds etc. Only animals I have seen are Wild boars, Deer, Porcupines, Rabbits, one time I counted heard of 33 Bison, Leopards and vast variety of birds. Just to be on record last sighting of pair of leopard was on evening of Feb 8th ,2015 by me and Gardner Sandhu for about 5 min with flash light across the creek. April 26th evening all guests saw pair of leopard at distance, Feb 2016 we saw three bears. September 18h our dog was taken by Leopard right in front of cook and gardener, since then till now I’ve seen many time and stop counting, don’t be scared they only come for cats and dogs. About the size of golden reteriver or little bigger but never heard attacking cows or human, only active at night. I saw two with flash light and they walked away, made my evening and I consider my self lucky enough to sight them. Seeing animals and birds is healthy sight since they are loosing there homes to viscous human beings who are not hesitant to kill them, cut forest and burn. Personally me working hard for past few years won the battle but lost the war. When you come here you will see what I mean. As far this place goes you can go on mild to moderate hike to waterfall or if you are courage's enough then climb tall mountain right in front of you, you can also walk on a trail to village called Bibin, usually village people are very welcoming and will invite you for tea or coffee into there homes. Also to make you feel better all the money you give for these cabins eventually trickle down to poverty driven people who were born in poverty and after working hard all there lives still living in poverty. There lives are almost like modern day slavery, dark side of this paradise. Especially women who pluck tea leaves under hot sun or rain and get paid very little. Surprisingly they always have beautiful smile in spite of going through never ending hardships unlike people in big cities. Anyway you are not coming here to end world hunger but to enjoy your time so lets get to the point. This place is little bit off the beaten path and very few people live around this area. If you like inner cities person then again this is not the place for you. I don't want to discourage you not to come but same time bit concern if this is a good match for you. Since there are no shops all around here so you can do all the shopping in Kotagiri and stack up the refrigerator. Mostly its the caretakers who goes and do shopping for you to kotagiri market and pass on the bills to you of what ever price they paid plus small profit on top, but still your meals price is not that high. For couple having Breakfast, lunch and dinner it will cost 1200 Rs a day, for single person 600 Rs a day, if you skip either meal then. OST will be less. Its quite a task for them to bringing groceries, gas calendar etc back down hill from kotagiri. I am personally hardly involved in doing anything around here other then to communicate with you and pass your phone number to Ishwar. Staying here is brilliant idea to contribute to poor, simultaneously you get your pleasure of staying in beautiful setting with awesome beauty around, you go to bed with noise of waterfall and wake up to the sound of birds. When you leave you can be proud of contributing towards not so privileged everyday life people in Nilgiris. Staying here American novelist John Muir's saying applies " A day spent in a nature is a day added to your life". If you have more then a back pack or carry on's then guys will be courteous enough to give you helping hand. I am sure they will appreciate tips too. People around are very humble and down to earth. Try not arrive very late at night but if you do please inform Ishwar. Can't buy beer or hard liquor around. Please bring Flash lights, books you always wanted to read. Please do not littler, have respect for next visitors and environment around. Some lady I never met tossed dirty diaper in the tea estate during there stay, I hope she never comes back again. Since it is such a small place no guarantee you will get cabin. Oh by the way water fall doesn't look as nice due to deforestation. Some people especially coming from cities buying land have no respect for nature and they are not hesitant to cut trees which took years to grow. Land without trees look bare and horrible. Forest around here with old matured trees is diminishing very quickly, wild animals loosing there home. Criminal actives in cutting Shola trees ( Indigenous trees) is quite common here especially by outsider not the locals. This is crying shame, we talk about vanishing Amazon forest but this is happening right here in Nilgiris. Unfortunately none of the rich tea planters all around raises voice or concern over deforestation. But if labor working in fields demand bit more money in wages that is four letter word to them. Anyway morning and evenings are very pleasant. Do not wonder off during afternoon, sun can be strong. If you are not in a good shape don't attempt to go on hike especially if you are heavy smoker. Most of the time I am not here but just in case if I am here and I happen to be driving to Kotagiri then I would love to give you ride from Ooty to Kotagiri. Also if you need help with pick up and drop off there is a real nice guy who got small New car and he can take you around sight seeing etc for fair price also pick you up from Coimbatore train station or airport and drop you back. Same applies to hikers, we got pro who know Nilgiris like back of his hand and all the hikes in this region, his name Anil and you can ask me his cell number.
I love this place because for couple of reasons , you can be in a quite serene and quaint place . Especially in India it is hard to find very quite places without ear deafening noise everywhere. Since there are no roads around so you don't even hear traffic. Winters are very nice and moderate. Summer can be warm . No air pollution or noise pollution around. Big towns around are quite polluted and dirty. Ooty and Coonoor are not what they use to be. During high season in summer streets are packed with tourist shoulder to shoulder with water shortage in hotel rooms. There are lot of restaurants in Ooty also fast food chains like Domino Pizza, Subway, Baskin Robins South Indian restaurants especially Ananda Bhawan. Its good Idea to get out and take day trip to Coonor and Ooty. If you go to Ooty visit Vegetable market and fish market. You really get good fish there and Baby will cook for you. Also its fun to take small train ride from Ooty to Coonor. Its called blue mountain train. Credit goes to British bringing train to ooty going back century. Please keep in mind this is small place middle of nowhere and can accommodate only few people at a time. Things can go wrong, power failure due to storms, monkeys can get inside the kitchen. So far haven't had any crises. but this applies to every day life in Nilgiris. Avoid long hikes if you are not in a shape, especially during hot sun. Avoid going too close to bison to take pictures. This area is free range for Bisons and some days there are lot of them and some days non. Its really fun to ride small train which is also called Blue Mountain Railways, it runs from Ooty to Coonoor also from Ooty to Metapalaum via Coonor. Locomotive enthusiastic comes from all over the world to ride steam engine which is Apx over 100 year old. If it was not for British we wont have these trains running today.
  • Fuschia is a special experience. Set amongst beautiful tea plantations in the Kotogiri highlands overlooking a stunning waterfall, the property is an oasis of tranquility in often chaotic India. Although the accommodation is somewhat basic, the food and hospitality are outstanding. Baby is an excellent cook, Ishwaran helps in any way required in taking care of the property while Shanti maintains the rooms. Sharan, the owner, has a genuine passion for preserving local nature and truly cares about contributing to the local people. It was a pleasure to get to know Sharan and his crew and we loved our experiences around the campfire and family style dinner table. If you are looking for a genuine back to nature experience supported by caring local people Fuschia is for you.

  • It was a really amazing experience staying there, food cooked by Baby was fresh and tasty also Ishwar sir was very supportive, we stayed in cabin #2 and the view was great it was clean and had all amenities. We will definitely be coming back again. Also we met Sharan sir and got to hear lots of his intresting life stories.

    Rajshri2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location and the entire Experience. You just need to go there to experience the feel

    Anirban2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best place hands hands down for a small group of friends or even couples..waking up to a breathtaking view and the scrumptious breakfast made it a lot more enjoyable trip..the hospitality is commendable and the location is just too good.. Would choose this place over Ooty any day.. Considering the calm and serene atmosphere added with less hassle from other tourists, this is a great place.

    Srikanth2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice property, Really a good place to connect with nature. Quite and serene place. Comfortable and clean rooms, Good food, friendly and courteous staff. You can enjoy the various natural trails in and around the property like the meditation rock as well as a wonderful waterfall which is 25 mins walk through the property.

    Akshit2020-01-31T00:00:00Z

    Sunil2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • If you want get away from the city life and all that noise, this is the best place. You can blend in with nature and have a great time. You will experience some great hospitality, really good home food, and some greatness of almost everything. The host was really great and helpful. Well, I had an amazing experience. I am just waiting for the right time to visit again.

    This the smallest cabin we got and cheapest one, no wash basin in bath room. Bed pretty decent size. If you are solo traveler and want to stretch your money then not bad idea. It's not always available. If you are city person please don’t come here. Not good match.
    Please read details under main listing called Look no further, this is it. FUCHIA. Comes up if you key in ooty or Kotagiri, Tamilnadu. Staying in this cabin every thing is same other then it's small
  • The location is beautiful and the venue is so wonderfully and thoughtfully built. It’s a definite recommendation for everyone who wants to escape from their noisy city lives. I felt amazingly welcomed and comfortable as a solo traveller and would love to visit again once time permits. You should too :)

    Sonia2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place filled with fantastic people. Sharan, Baby and Iswars hospitality blew me away. The delicious food, the calmness of nature, the kindness of the local people and waking up to the sound of the waterfall turned my initial plans of staying for just 3 nights into almost a week. There is a direct bus from Ooty to Kotagiri which is so worth catching, I couldn't recommend going that little extra mile more. I cannot wait to visit again, thank you so much to everyone there, it was such a treat!

    Ashley2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect place on a perfect location! The guesthouse is on a tea estate. Very well organised, clean, friendly staff, good food, lovely dogs, beautiful rooms, great walks.. need I say more? A fantastic place to relax in a hammock and read a book or to explore the beautiful hills. I came on foot, it is about 1 hour walking from the main road where the bus stops. Turn right at the tea factory.

    Per2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The place is marvelous, really close to nature. You can easily spot Bison and Porcupine there and if you are lucky then maybe you'll see a leopard. It is connected by serene beauty of waterfall and streams. Caretaker in the place, Baby Akka is super cool and cook homely food (which I had after millennia). I was given a solo lodge that was great and the place was filled with awesome people as well. Sharan sir himself is very welcoming and his hard work the on estate is laudable.

    Kanishk2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Sharan’s place is one of a kind. If you like to inhale some magnificent breath-taking nature, Sharan’s place is THE place. Not only that, he and his co-hosts Baby and Ishwar are amazing human beings. I loved every minute I spent there. Truly, one of the greatest places I stayed with Abnb. I’m truly honored and humbled to meet with such amazing souls. Kind and generous people. I hope to stay at his place again :)

    Yasmine2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Fuschia is truly a paradise on earth. I planned to go for only 2 days but ended up staying 6. Sharan the owner is a wonderful person with a big heart. I was very lucky to catch up with him as he’s not often at the property. Ishwar and Baby ar such lovely and caring people to. I really felt at home. Every day they surprised us with amazing food. The area is a truth paradise, the rooms are great, it is super quiet. You can only hear the waterfall. Truly heaven on earth. Thank you Sharan, Baby and Ishwar for your amazing hospitality. I’m jealous as you guys have created such a wonderful home. And are living in a paradise every day. I wish I could stay forever and hope to be back someday. I wish you all the best in your life’s!

    Tim2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay, it would be a little difficult to find the place on google maps (I followed the map and got lost 3 km away from the place) but the host helped a lot and stayed on call till I reached the stay so I would suggest to take the landmarks before you start as it’s helpful. Coming back to the rooms and food, Rooms r kept clean and food is also good and the best part is the view from the rooms and place where it’s located. The only back drop of the place would be the walking to the place from the parking. Overall, had a good experience.

    Omkar2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sharan was planting trees in his forest conservation effort at Fuschia. What an amazing guy. The caretakers of the ground are very considerate, great food. Great chats. It’s the people like Sharan I meet makes me want to come back to India over and over again. Incredible India.

    Shweta P2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place, well maintained. The caretaker Joe is very helping and polite. The house is on the top of the mountain overlooking the entire tea plantation. Great place for a couple of small group of friends

    Kanchan2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious, clean, beautiful views, worth every penny. Highly recommended. Stayed with wife and 8 months old kid. Everything was perfect right from the check in. Place is not far from the city centre yet serene. can enjoy wonderful valley View all day long. Host Mr. Vijayprabhu was very prompt in communication. caretaker and his family had also been a great help. Would love to stay here again.

    Sukrut2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • House is very beautiful and peaceful, view from the room is awesome.Enjoyed my stay

    Ashish2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Location and rooms was superb.

    Praveen2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located atop a hill a bit outside of the city center. The view from the window is breathtaking. Since it's a bit outside, auto walas and cabbies charge you more. There's doorstep delivery from swiggy with ample options. Mr. Vijayaprabu was always quick to respond to any queries. We asked for a late check-out and he promptly agreed. 5+ stars for the caretaker Jose. He's just amazing with his hospitality. Always there for you needs. There are no shops around the house and we needed some groceries. We asked Jose and he promptly delivered what we needed. Would definitely recommend to fellow travelers.

    Maroof2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Best place to stay in ooty. The caretakers are very helpful and very hospitable.

    Nidhi2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • This room is an outstanding choice for anyone interested in enjoying the beauty of Ooty. The view is magnificent, the room very comfortable, the staff is extremely helpful, the location is quiet but close to transportation and services and excellent value. My wife and I stayed a week and look forward to coming back again.

    Ooty, Tamil Nadu, India

    Nianna Estate (formerly Karthik) is a beautiful stone dwelling surrounded by luscious tea leaf terraces, organic vege-farm and fresh water stream. The estate is located in the charming town of Deenaty close to the Sivan Temple. The best way to reach the estate is via the Oooty - Kagguchi road. If you are looking for a farm-to-table experience (seasonal) then this is just the place for you! Pick carrots, radish, beetroot, red cabbage, tea and more, and the caretaker will prepare a meal for you.
    The Plantation House is located amidst 30 acres of lush Broken Orange Pekoe (BOP) leaves. The house is the focal point of the estate but there is great trekking in all directions. To the north lies multiple terraces of tea leaves which once climbed leads to a potable fresh water stream. To the south is a fully-organic vegetable farm (seasonal) and tea weighing area with staff quarters. The house itself has a bedroom on the upstairs and downstairs levels. These 2 fabulous rooms sleep 4 people comfortably. Both rooms have en-suite bathrooms. There is a living room with a TV downstairs and a sitting room upstairs. There are 2 outdoor viewing decks on the north and south side, from here wild animals such as bisons and deer can be spotted. The house has a cosy dining room that seats 4 comfortably, the kitchen is full-service and open for you to use. There is a powder room attached to the dining room. We have a washing machine on property. For in-house dining, a chef is available at a small fee. Nianna is the ideal place to catch up with some quiet time, play family games, dive into a great book or take in the freshest air you will ever experience. We recommend driving to the estate in an SUV or high vehicle as the approach can be muddy, there is an option to park your card nearby and have a local vehicle bring you to the property. Arriving after 5pm is not advised either as the last 1 km of road doesn't have lighting.
    The neighbourhood is a very charming place. Kagguchi has some lovely tea shops with locally made food. Deenaty is a very quiet and sparsely populated village, do not expect to find any large retail shops here, in fact we advise you to bring your own consumables. There is a local town in walking distance (5 mins) from the Estate with houses and shops. There also neighbouring estates.
  • It was wonderful stay, good and clean space and helpful dinesh made it all worth. Its 1 hour away from Ooty main town, you need to carry all your food items. the only problem we faced was to reach the house from denaty (1.2 km away) and no proper road and bushes around the path to scratch your car.

    Amjad2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • It's a very beautiful property, surrounded by lush green trees and valley in front. Room size is good, balcony is the place where you will spend most of the time admiring the view.

    Creative2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of the finest places in Airbnb. Care taker Dinesh helped us with everything and he cooks like a professional chef! I really loved the tea estate and the plantation around. There are many birds and animals(harmless) around the estate. I ll definitely visit this place another time!

    Lloyd2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had an extremely lovely stay. The property is isolated and the cottage is quaint and cozy. Sitting on the upstairs balcony and soaking in the surrounding beauty is something everyone must experience. The caretaker, Mr. Dinesh, is of great help. Besides cooking delicious food (he can make any vegetarian dish taste simply fabulous), he also showed us a few trekking trails and places we could hike up to. He was there for every tiny niggle we had and made our stay perfect.

    Anjali2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great place!!

    Megha2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • I will specially mention about the caretaker, Dinesh’s hospitality, it was so cordial and warm. I will recommend this place to everyone as a great weekend getaway amidst nature. The stay was a bit remote and difficult to find yet it was worth every bit of it. I will love to come back again.

    Deenaty, Tamil Nadu, India

    Please read main listing for Fuschia Kotagiri to get detailed description. All details are exactly the same except cabin # 5 is smaller but still comes with king size bed and sleeps two adults. Your food cost per couple will be apx 1200 Rs, which includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s totally worth it given location etc. If you choose not to partake in meals, your cost will be less.. if you are city people please dong come here, not good match. I totally respect you time off from work.
    Surrounded by forest, tea plants, and the soothing sounds of a tumbling waterfall.
    Extremely quiet and peaceful. Local people are gentle and kind.
  • This place is a heaven on earth. We spent 3 days here but would have loved to spend more than a week at least. Amidst of tea plantations this place has a waterfall, a pond and above all, fresh air. It's just amazing to wake up in the arms of mother nature and experience the mesmerising sunrise along with songful chirping of birds. As Sharan has already mentioned much about the place, so don't expect lavish restaurants and luxury hotel services here. Rooms are very clean and they have a variety of room sizes to cater different people. The kitchen is open and we can make full use of it. I must say the food provided by Ishwar and Baby is really delicious. Baby's veg biryani was awesome. There is a nice sitting area and a small set of books which we can read. We can spend time chit chatting here. Sharan has a lot of stories that can keep you involved. There is a chess board and Sharan has recently arranged a carom board, probably we inaugurated it. In addition to so many good things this place is pet friendly. Thanks Sharan for this, today's generation hardly knows how to live with other creatures. Because of your place we could take our pet child along, who had so much of free space to enjoy and have fun. She made friends in blacky and browny(the two pups already in Fuschia). Thanks Fuschia, Sharan, Baby, Ishwar, Blacky and Browny. We will be back soon.

    Amber2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place, If you are planning to visit kotagiri ,believe me you have a bliss awaiting you here, Fuschia..!!! A warm and wonderful host , if you are lucky to meet him. Caring and ready for anything set of people to help you with everything that they can, and heavenly surroundings, what more can you ask for??? You even have a semi private waterfalls that most other stays cannot offer. Waking up to the cold morning , to the soothing melodies from the birds and the waterfalls.....mezmerizing. Food is authentic Tamil food , Simple , and yummy(this may cost a bomb depending upon what you may expect). I would definitely recommend this place.

    Chaithra2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Truly amazing place. Sharan, Ishwar and Baby (Dhanalakshmi) took care of us in every possible way. We were apprehensiveat first because we were traveling with 2yr old kid, but the place, people and their hospitality made this visit super memorable for us. Be ready for a bit of walk, a bit of cold, random sightings of bison, bears(we missed by a few mins). Be ready also to stay disconnected while you're here and you'll totally enjoy this place. The food by Baby is amazing. Special thanks for tending to needs of our kid while we were there. Really appreciate it! Look forward to being there in future.

    Karthik2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Place is quite peaceful , if u need peace with good view it's the best place.

  • This is the best e-detox you will ever need. Just be with nature... be here... be at fuschia... feel the bliss of being with the nature once again how we were when were young

    Venu2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Please visit this place if you are looking to stay amidst nature, like to be treated to amazing home cooked food and be hosted by Sharan sir. The place is just as mentioned - clean and comfortable. The property is in a tea estate. There is a nice waterfall where you can hike to, a meditation rock if you are looking for some quiet time. The caretakers - Iswar and Baby are very hospitable and make the best food!

    Anjali2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Sublime hikes, whether it's sunny or cloudy, everything is beautiful in these tea fields. The accommodation is very beautiful but very humid, it is the climate in these mountains .. it is better to provide warm clothes. The meals are delicious and the atmosphere is very warm, it is a special time to meet other visitors. Sharan and Baby's family are very kind and knowledgeable. I will return with pleasure.

    This is a self-catering cottage with a bedroom/ living area, kitchen/dining room and an en suite bathroom. With exposed brick walls, walnut finished wood and hand painted tiles, Ivy Cottage is delightfully shabby chic. Rustic and yet luxurious, its red, white and black color theme and art work reflect local tribal culture and the animals of the Nilgiris. An entire wall of floor to ceiling windows look out on a private patio and gardens and a stunning view. Gardens are shared with other guests.
    Just 7 kilometers outside of Ooty town, this property is close to all the major tourist highlights but is secluded and remote at the same time. Away from the hustle and bustle of Ooty town, Ivy Cottage is a serene and peaceful retreat, overlooking tea estates, wild forest and mountain ridges. Two other houses, Stumpfields and Bilberry share the 1.5 acre property. Bilberry Cottage is directly above Ivy Cottage. This is a mountain retreat, not a five star hotel. We have staff here during the day to support guests, but not at night. We have beautifully equipped kitchens so you can cook your own food, but we do not have a restaurant. We understand if you do not wish to cook on your vacation, so you can hire one of our ladies for a "Book A Cook" option, (please see the house manual for more details). There is Highland Hotel with a good restaurant just 1.5 km away. We urge only resilient, nature loving, independent, resourceful, adventuresome people to book a holiday here. Its a wild and steep terrain, and at night you will not hear the noise of traffic, but rather the sound of wind in the trees, owls in the dark, rain on the roofs, bird and animal calls. While the evenings may have firelight, candles and electricity, once the lights are out, it will be pitch dark all around. When skies are clear the stars and moon are perhaps the most beautiful you will ever see. Its something about being in the mountains 8,000 ft high, with no pollution covering the atmosphere. Other times of the year, especially in the monsoon, its just incredibly dark. The mountains of Ooty are also very cool year round, especially at night. While the indoors are warm and cozy, mountain air outside is brisk! For those who want complete luxury, room service, wifi, TV's, a restaurant, and 24 hour staff service we recommend you book a hotel in the town of Ooty. Come here ready to unplug from emails and the internet, TV's and movies, and try curling up by the oil heater with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Let your body and mind re-set and re-charge as you decompress and let the nature around you remind you there is a different way to live. A little iron gate invites a short walk into national reserve forest surrounding the Stumpfield property. A private flight of stone steps leads down to the orchard of fruit trees and herb garden. If you look carefully you might find some strawberries as well! Feel free to pick your own herbs, spring onions or leeks, or just sit back and sip some tea at the garden table. For those who want some serious hiking, just ask our helpful caretaker who can either guide you or point you in the right direction.
    We live in the wilderness, completely secluded with no other neighbors around. You probably won't feel too isolated because we have two other houses on the property, with guests and staff during the day. At the end of our drive, along a main road is a small village where the local tea-pickers reside. You can catch a glimpse of this village from the balcony of the cottage. There is a dry goods shop in Buttercombai, which has rice, sugar, tea, lentils, onions and eggs. At the top of Thumanatty Road and Kotaghiri Rd. junction there is an Aavin store with all dairy products, just. 5 km away. At that lookout point, local villagers also sell vegetables and eggs. You can also order food from a couple restaurants that delivery straight to your cottage. For greater variety be sure to shop for food in Ooty town before arriving at Stumpfields. I'll have salt, pepper, tea, coffee, biscuits, cumin, chili powder, coriander, and turmeric powder and oil. So, if you are planning to cook, please bring your fresh veggies and or meat and fruit. Since we live at the top of the mountain, we have a freshwater well, and you can drink straight from the tap, no boiling needed, so don't plan on buying water. Since Ooty is 7 km from, its best to buy your food in the market in Ooty before arriving at the cottage.
  • It is a great place..always recommended

    Vibson2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place with a breathtaking view of the Nilgiris.

    Yohan2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had stayed at Ivy to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The house is the most beautiful place in all of Ooty. We loved our stay here. Enjoyed the thoughtful spaces in the house and the pretty upholstery. The garden and the views were breathtaking. The three dogs were very friendly and came to play with us everyday. Hariharan was very helpful throughout our trip. The whole experience was so enjoyable. The house is very peaceful and away from all the hustle bustle of the town. I highly recommend this place.

    Tanmai2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Stumpfields was a true gift. Breakfasts with gorgeous views, the friendliest dogs, a homey and beautifully decorated space, and truly wonderful hospitality! Stay here for peace!

    Abbey2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The place is great and the information provided by the host was very helpful in deciding our trip. The place was very clean with all the basic amenities. The view was spectacular (especially the sunrise). The company of the dogs makes the stay more memorable (Azhagi followed us everywhere, Waza showed us the place were we can see the best view and Konjam was such a playful dog copying whatever the other two were doing). Time flies by playing with the dogs. I would surely come again to Mala's place on my next trip to Kotagiri/Ooty. I would recommend travellers to read the description carefully and then decide to book. This place may not be everyone's cup of tea. Things such as uneven driveway to Villa, roaming dogs, no restaurants, inconsistent network, no staffs during night, steep walking could bother many, but none was a problem for us. The stay and view is all worth all of it. I would recommend the place to everyone.

    Niyati2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • The views from the cottage are just stunning. Can spend hours just sitting on the garden swing and staring at the garden filled with flowers and the mountains beyond. Very classy cottage with very good amenities. The only thing that could be better is the pavement /path that leads up to the cottage where parking is. It was uneven , dirt roads for most part. Also, they are not kidding when they say the hike up to the cottage is steep! If you are okay with that, fabulous place worth staying.

    This is a remote cozy cottage about 6km away from Kotagiri town. There are two private bedrooms with attached bathrooms available for rent on the first floor. Nearby attractions include a waterfall, a small dam and trekking trail. Meals can be arranged on prior notification – You may also feel free to use the shared kitchen and laundry. The property is fenced off so you can safely enjoy the occasional sighting of bison, bear, leopards, rabbits, porcupine, sambar deer and other native wildlife.
    Wake up to the sound of sparrows and fresh aroma from the surrounding tea estates. A shared wifi is available but speed is poor as the surrounding hills block the signals. We have a landline for free national calls. As this is a shared property we prefer only families as guests. Alcohol is permitted but only on the first floor.

  • Its a beautiful bungalow in a tea garden just five kms from Kotagiri. Gary's Mom and Dad stays in the same property. They are very nice hosts and I must admit maam is a great cook. Please look forward to very tasty breakfast. Our pet Bubbles (Labrador) almost refused to leave the house after two days stay. We also enjoyed garden fresh tree tomatos (never seen them before) and plucked Pitches from tree. Mobile signals are weak but there is wifi at home so had no problem. We went there as guests and left from there as family members with lots of good memories. I will pray for Uncle's speedy recovery. looking fwd to our next visit to Kotagiri.

    Dipta2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Greendale is the destination for a calm, relaxing, beautiful and an ideal spot for a vacation at Kothagiri. It's a home away from home. Mrs. Gerry is one of the best hosts I have ever come across. She poured in so much love and took care of us , not to forget the piping hot breakfasts and coffees she served us which were amazing. This place is paradise for nature lovers. Waiting for the next vacation back to Greendale.

    Yugesh2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable stay and very sociable hosts. Excellent breakfasts too.

    Peter2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The place is excellent and hosts are very warm and friendly. It is perfect for a family of 3-4 folks. I really enjoyed my stay at Gary's place. If I go to Ooty again, this would be my choice of stay.

    Jaswant2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • To all the people who are trying to zero in on a perfect stay. You don’t need to look any further. Green dale is a perfect place to visit if you are looking to stay away from a crowded place. The house is situated in the midst of nature and is really peaceful and serene. Aunty is a wonderful host. She is really approachable and helpful apart from being a very good cook. She makes sure that freshly prepared food is served to you. The service offered was worth more than what I paid. I am definitely going to come back to this place.

    We support Climate Change and we support 'PLOGGING', Thank You. Nestled in a very quiet neighborhood of Ooty and our place has a serene view with a Thatch Stay to enjoy the mother nature with a tribal (TODA) flair. We serve traditional vegetarian food and can be availed for an extra cost 230/meal/person. Thank You.
  • If you love the nature and a backpacker this place is going to make you mind-blowing. When the climate is beautiful you will get best out of it and the small hiking in the forest with Toda People will give you best experience... I had the lifetime experience in this place as I did Solo Ride to this place... The TodaFood and Culture is almost like 1000 years history and lot more to know about them . Add in advantage if you know good Tamil so that it's easier for you to communicate with them... Carry what all needed during the stay as Main Road is quite far...

    Bharadwaj2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent communication from Tharun. Rajesh the caretaker was very humble. I'd like to call it a great experience, rather than stay. Place is located in remote village. It has basic hut stay with clean restroom. No issues with the hygiene. We enjoyed the stay and would like to come back agin with my tribe. It's better if you get a tamil speaking friend along, it'll help understand the history of the place. It's about 1.5km downhill walk, coming back can be quite a task if you are not fit enough. If you love solitude, no place can be better than this. If not, get your gang & intoxicants along. Please try not to litter the place, to maintain its sanity.

    Pavan2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Thatch stay was an amazing experience, after reading the great reviews for this place I had great expectations from this place, it turned out to me even more amazing than what I expected. The hospitality was great, we reached that place late in the evening, Rajesh picked us up from the point till where car could reach, on our hike to the site he would share with us the information of the tribe, the mountains and would respond to every questions that we had. We were welcomed with an evening tea and were served dinner. The local people helped us to set up bonfire in front of our thatch and shared with us stories and songs of their tribe. They told us about the rituals. We got to celebrate pismuskutan's (a guy from the tribe) birthday as well. They invited us over to their traditional festival as well but we could not join as we had to leave the next day. Next morning, we went for a short hike, the place is simply beautiful, as described it is away from all the hustle and bustle of the citu and has an environment which gives mental peace. We could see the natural dense forest as well as the man made tea garden on the mountain on theother side of our stay. Bisisin is a wonderful lady wo took care of us. She served delicious food, showed us the traditional embroidery work, shared with us their rituals of marriage by showing is her wedding album. She always has this smile on her face and is really kind. P.S. I am tamil and the localities are very fluent with tamil, hence the communication was really easy. But they also know english to an extent that they could communicate required things. My friend is not Tamil, but in between the conversations they always made sure that he is comfortable and not getting bored!! :) Overall, It was an amazing experience and a wonderful stay. I have not described the place much because it would be best to experience it directly by staying there and not read it here.

    Sharanya2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Thatch is a different Experience altogether in Nilgiris (Kodanad Region) One Would realize Life is way too simple. We get a Chance to know Toda people's Culture and their means of Livelihood. It's Recommended only if you are in a Group (Min 3). It's not suitable for Family, Kids, Senior Citizens.(Only Adults) The Hike leading to the Thatch is Quite Awesome. One would be put under physical test in that Hike. Toda people were simply Superb 👌 The Hospitality was Great. We Trekked the Dense Forest from our Thatch. Greenery all around, Stream of water Flowing through the Forest. It was Worth a Experience 😊

    Manjunath2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • This really is an astonishing trip. The experience shows you a brilliant, undiscovered side of Ooty Toda tribals then take you to a breathtaking spot for a hike, And then has an even more beautiful location the Thatch Stay for you to watch the sunset from and sleep under the stars.. All the equipment is of super high quality, and I have dined fully. Thank you Tharun for a magical experience.

    Joshi2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place took us by surprise! My wife and I were looking for a nature stay in kotagiri hill range, and this authentic Toda hut stay was more than we could wish for. Tharun has done a great job giving the warm tribal folk much needed visibility on the internet. The hut is tucked away from the main road and can be reached after a gorgeous short walk through the forest. Mornings were spent birdwatching and sipping on tea. Evenings were spent with the amazing people of the village, talking and learning about Toda history and culture. The elders were very excited to share memories through stories, song and dance. The pastoral tribe's food is very different from the regular spread. Pàal Saappadu is a must try. Anybody with an interest in nature and culture must visit Thatch stay.

    LOCATED: 5 minutes walk from the BOTANICAL GARDEN !!! Suite room- Wood-Panelled walls. Similar to a high-end-luxury heritage property, (but offered at a price even less than a low-budget room, by a Non-profit organisation). CENTRAL LOCATION - so it is safe, easy to find local transport, major tourist spots easily accessible. FOOD & ROOM SERVICE IS AVAILABLE - Also, choice of restaurants located just across the road. JUST 500 meters from MAIN COMMERCIAL ROAD (for Shopping & Dining out). CAR PARK.
    This is a posh Luxury Double room Suite with one Double Cot, similar to a high-end-luxury heritage property, but offered at a price even less than a low-budget room. Being a Non-profit charitable organisation, we offer the lowest budget-pricing possible, in a prime location within the heart of Ooty. The ambience here is that of an old heritage property, unlike the commonplace modern day trendy buildings. Holiday makers throng to the hills of Ooty to leave behind their stressed up life in the cities; and the last thing they want to see is another stereo-type modern space to stay in. This heritage suite is totally (solid) wood-panelled, exuding a truly Victorian ambiance. It has a Sofa-lounge section, a Dining Table section, a Dressing Table, a TV, and a Toilet. Check out the snaps, it is all in there for you to see. Unlike other low-budget properties, we are centrally located - so your family is safe, and you don’t have to hunt around looking for local transport (and then spend more than twice your Room-tariff on expensive cabs). The location further makes it easier to access most of the major tourist spots. Maximum number of guests permitted - 4 Guests Charge for each extra guest from the 3rd Guest onwards (up to 2 Guests - No extra charge) - Rs.500 per extra guest. SO WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES? 1. SUPER LOW PRICING: High-end luxury heritage properties charge exorbitantly from 5 times to 15 times our tariff - (you can check this out yourself if you feel this is an exaggeration). 2. LOCATION: Just about 250 meters radius from the Botanical Garden Main Gate, and about 500 meters from Main Commercial Road of Ooty. So (a). It is safe; (b). You can just take a short walk up to Commercial Road for shopping and dining out; (c). You have a choice of transport at your door step; (d). If you prefer instead to chill-out, just take a leisurely walk in to the Botanical Garden; and (e). It is easier to access most of the major tourist spots. 3. CATERING: Room-service is available. In addition to this, there are also a choice of restaurants catering to all budgets, located on the opposite side of the compound just across the road. 4. FOR NATURE LOVERS: 55 Acres of Lush Green superb landscape awaits you with in the Botanical Garden. With hundreds of selections of flowers and trees, it is a must-see for all. Even otherwise, just take a stroll in to the garden any time you feel like it; after all, it is just round the corner. 5. ROUND THE CLOCK HOT WATER: Unlike other budget properties, we provide 24 Hour Hot water service with Geysers in all bathrooms. (So, no morning/evening timings for Hot water, and no water-rationing). 6. CAR PARK: Ample car parking is available within the compound and it is free of charge. Further, the Gates are closed and locked in the night for safety. 7. LOCAL TAXI SERVICE AND TRAVEL ARRAGEMENTS: We do arrange local taxi services and sight-seeing tours both in Taxis and Mini-busses. We connect the guest directly with the relevant service-provider, and we never act as (commercial) commission-agents in between the customer and service-provider. 8. PERSONALISED SERVCE: You can count on a non-commercial attitude and personalised service from us - what else would you expect from a Non-profit organisation? A REQUEST: Our policy has always been to offer the lowest possible budget pricing. Although, most of our guests have felt that the interiors of our rooms do match those of high-end luxury heritage properties, kindly do recognize our limitations therein considering our exceptionally low tariffs (resulting in thin profit margins). Hence, it is earnestly requested that you kindly do limit your expectations from our property and services, only up to a level foreseeable from just a budget property service. We do prefer not to compare our services to that of high-end luxury properties that charge exorbitantly from 5 times to 15 times our tariffs. But, in due course, it will be our endeavour to try and match, or perhaps even exceed their standards of service, while keeping our same low-budget pricing intact.
    Located in the prime heart of Ooty with just a five minute walk to the Government Botanical Gardens, landscaped gardens featuring rare trees, a fern house & an Italian-style garden set in 55-acres.LOCATED in the prime heart of Ooty in the neighbourhood of the Botanical Garden, and yet very near the Main Commercial Road. It is just a five minute walk to the Botanical Garden, 55 acres of spectacular landscaped gardens featuring rare trees, flowers, a fern house and an Italian-style garden.

  • Lovely old building in the grounds of a temple just by the botanical gardens. Herita style decor, with a comfy bed and hot water. The building is being restored so bear with them as some of the building isn't finished. It is cold at night in the winter months, so you do need to ask for a room heater. Overall, a lovely quirky place to stay, with fantastic hospitality from Shakti the caretaker.

    Joanne2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We didn't meet Mr. Sumith but were greeted by Mr. Shakti with a big smile. He was always around and bringing tea, coffee and hot water. A wonderful, happy and pleasant man with a cute family. The room is like on the picture. The wood gives the place a warm feel. Lots of space for luggage and everything is clean, the bed is comfy. The house is mostly quiet and in a good location. Bathroom is functional, all stone, very clean, and very hot water is there if you use the left faucet. Complimentary we got cookies, toiletries and towels are fresh. The whole Club House, Residency, is an interesting place, very different from a hotel. Mr. Sumith was always there for us via WhatsApp and inquired several times about our well being during our stay. We had a great time, thank you.

    Kaverinathan2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • A hidden treasure with old world charm yet easy to locate with the assistance provided from Sumit. Shakthi is the 'Man Friday' for sure. We stayed here for three nights & went around maximum places on foot. It's so centrally located yet not noisy etal. Don't miss the opportunity to stay here if you are planning to visit Ooty. Thanks Sumit & Shakthi for making our stay a memorable one.

    Beautiful old British Colonel's residence restored to perfection. Royston by Nianna is a blend of old world British aristocracy coupled with modern day amenities and comfort. If you are looking for the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of the corporate world or are simply due a perfectly restoring holiday then Royston is the one. Located 70 kms from Coimbatore, the journey to Royston is an adventure in itself. We warmly welcome visitors from near and far - our pleasure is hosting.
    Royston is a gorgeous old Colonial residence which once served as home to Colonel Rowcroft. Colonel Rowcroft was a British Army officer who served in India during the time of the First World War. As such Royston is abundant with history. The walls are clad with wartime memorabilia including old photos and hangings from the past 100 years. The main house comprises of 3 fabulous bedrooms (all with televisions) and the adjoining cottage has one bedroom. The main house sleeps 6 comfortably and it is suitable for all ages. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms which are large and well equipped, there is also a powder room. The cottage comes equipped with 2 bathrooms. The living room is where everyone comes together, with the warm fireplace and oversized couches - there isn't a more comfortable place on earth.

    Coonoor is an old hill station with tremendous history. It served as a rehabilitation retreat for the British soldiers during the war due to its temperate climate and extremely clean air. The town of Bedford which is in walking distance from Royston is a real melting pot. Fresh fruit markets, butchers, farmers markets, seafood merchants and many more traders line the central marketplace. You can find the freshest of food here with local fare to boast. Coonoor is a sightseer's paradise. Sims Park, Lambs Rock, Dolphin Nose and Highfield Tea Plantation all lie within a stone's throw from the house. The town plays home to every form of religion and from the hill where Royston is based you are able to see a Church, Mosque, Jain Temple, Gurudwara and a number of Hindu Temples. Within 20 minutes either side of Coonoor lies Ooty and Kotigiri each with their own charm. A little further afield is Nianna Tea Plantation, a 30 minute drive, another HOSPITALITYEXPERT property which we encourage you to visit. Coonoor is a famous hill station that is 17 km from Ooty in Tamil Nadu, India. It is probably the second most popular hill station in the Nilgiris. The hill station stands at a height of 1839 meters and is known for its great picnic spots and picturesque surroundings. Coonoor is also famous for tea gardens and tea factories. Coonoor provides the traveler with the panoramic view of the lush green Nilgiri hills, with its ravines, valleys, and waterfalls. Bird watching is a popular pastime in Coonoor, as the area boasts of a large variety of species like cormorants, pipits, thrushes, parakeets, skylarks, Nilgiri verditer, etc. Travelers can take a walk through the tea gardens. There are number of trekking and hiking trails around Coonoor. Travellers can enjoy the exhilarating and unique ride on the toy train that connects Coonoor with Mettupalayam (which Indian Rail spells Metupalaiyam) and Ooty. The trip provides some breathtaking views of the Nilgiri hills in all its natural glory. Though secondary in importance to Ooty, Coonoor offers a more secluded retreat, away from the crowds that throng Ooty. If a quiet, romantic holiday tucked away in the hills amidst fresh air and verdant Nature is what you are looking for, Coonoor is your best bet. We provide umbrellas for each room to be used during the rainy season, so nothing stops you from exploring the beautiful surroundings.
  • It was a great stay and would highly recommend it. It's in the heart of the town but still very peaceful. Also very neat and clean.

    Hariharan2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This house looks extremely beautiful. My first stay in colonial house. The valley view from first floor is very stunning and you get breath taking sun set in the evening. I stayed with family including infant and everyone enjoyed the stay and felt more comfortable. Cook akka and care taker anna was very helpful. They prepare delicious hot food in our convenient timing. Joseph Frankel uncle is friendly and he suggested many local tips. I will sure come back and i suggest this house for the pleasant family stay.

    Goutham2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you are planning to visit Coonoor, you HAVE to stay at this place. It is as beautiful as it looks. The view from this place is beyond beautiful. The best part was the hospitality. The hosts are great to talk to and the cook is beyond amazing. You must enjoy all your meals in the house. Ask for recommendations from the chef. And he uses fresh ingredients. He even set up a barbecue pit for us. The compound has many fruit trees like avocado, sweet lime, different types of guavas, peaches, etc. I am a die hard nature lover and it’s a heaven for people like me.

  • We stayed at this beautiful cozy villa for 3 nights and we had a pleasant experience and would definitely visit again. Super hosts Usha and Joseph Frankel had it all arranged before we arrived. Though we confirmed about the dinner a little late, the staff made sure to have all the items requested were ready on time for dinner. The staff is very helpful and catered to our needs and cooked some delicious food. I also appreciate the hygiene maintained around here. We would love to visit this beautiful property again to experience the warmth and care the hosts and staff provided. You guys are indeed hospitality experts!! Thanks again.

    Rakesh2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • The stay was good and cosy, a 100+ years house and lovely hosts. We were extremely well taken care for by the Caretaker and his wife who not only helped us through the trip but fed us some excellent food on demand. Only note to the Owners and to all who read this comment - there is no professional chef at the place,it is the Caretaker and his wife who cook and they do a good job at it, lovely couple - God bless them. Overall a lovely stay and worth returning to .Mr and Mrs. Frankel gave us excellent care and guidence and the place was clean, spick and span (Love the house and thank Mr and Mrs Frankel and the caretaker and his wife for making it a home for us)

  • Very cozy place. Mr Ramesh is very helpful and courteous and made our stay very comfortable, his wife cooked yummy meals for us too. The house is perfect for a family, has beautiful views too. Will come back soon:). Thank you Mr Kennedy.

    Rajul2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Kennedy's villa for 2 days. The villa is beautiful, just that the roads are bit narrow. Ramesh the care taker was there to help us with anything we required. He assisted us with lunch and breakfast. We had a great time with Bonfire and Barbeque. We would definitely come back and stay. You can relax and njoy here. Rooms are clean and well kept. There are enough blankets to keep u warm. Washrooms are clean and has sufficient hot water available 24/7. Definitely recommended with family and friends

    Ramachandra2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you like a rustic and quite place in Ooty; don't look any further. This is the place. There are no restaurants or shopping close by. However, Ramesh, the caretaker was ready to help anytime. We stayed for a week but Ramesh made our stay more pleasurable.

    Prasad2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • I and my family had a wonderful stay. Mr. Kennedy, Mr. Ramesh & Staffs are very humble an co-operative. However, there is two thing I would like to highlight to Mr. Kennedy 1- There is no mirror in any of the room. It’s only placed in washroom. 2- Out of 3 Room heaters 2 are not working properly, neither we can place it at a position that we can get the heat. Switches are right above the head of the bed placed, and thus you can not put the heater and can’t use it.

    Prashant2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed the stay! 😘

    Sharmila2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

Wonderful Heritage Cottage, beautifully maintained with its original beauty and modern amenities, calm and peaceful location away from the the everyday noises, overlooking the race course and the beautiful valley, absolutely wonderful staff to make you feel very much at home. The host Mr Kennedy and the manager Mr Ramesh will make you their family. They made my visit so beautiful and memorable I shall visit this Cottage every time I come to Ooty, even if it is occupied I shall definitely visit my friends, Kennedy and Ramesh, very grateful to have acquainted them.🤗🙏

    Rama Devi2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place for a 2 families

    Vijaya2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • The booking process was relatively quick and was confirmed in less than an hour. Though we arrived late like around 7pm, Mr. Kennedy & Mr. Antony both were there to receive us, which was really a personal touch! About the property, it had an amazing view, located like on the edge of a cliff & was speck and clean, well maintained, clean interiors & extra fleece blankets! A bon fire was nicely set-up and we weren't disturbed by any means all through that wee hours party. Mr. Antony helped us make our breakfast next morning which was truly generous of him. The property is in the heart of the city from where you can have a beautiful view of the lake, the race course & the glimmering city at night. Watch out for a nice collection of books kept by Mr. Kennedy to those avid book lovers!

  • This is my second time at this place and as usual the hosts were very kind in making our stay comfortable. They even offered tips to.visit nearby places, warm hospitality and sparkling clean rooms made it the stay even more pleasant.

    Senthur Balan2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • For someone like me who was looking for a stay far from the city chaos, this cottage was the best choice. It's not less than a home hosted by two elderly ladies. Place is so clean with a lovely garden and beautiful scenic view from the terrace. Best thing I liked is, it is almost equidistant from Coonor and Ooty, so we could cover both the places ,not completely though. Though Chris was not physically there to host us, he kept checking and made sure that we have a nice stay. P.S. I came with my brothers who stayed in home stay for the first time,though initially they were not so happy with my choice ( wanted to stay in a hotel) but later on to my relief it was a nice experience for them.

    Payal2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Chris's place in Ketti valley is perfectly sandwiched between Coonoor and Ooty. Most places worth a visit in Coonoor are a short drive away. The apartment is extremely spacious and comfortable. The porch that the Lawley cottage opens to has an incredible rose garden which was fantastic to wake up to every morning. Right from a variety of wonderful and reasonably priced home cooked meals (we had breakfast and dinner there everyday) to helping us shortlist places to visit, both of Chris's grandmums who have been running this place for years now, were extremely gracious and helpful. Chris himself too helped us a great deal with planning our travel, arranging for a vehicle and driver and so on. He was available whenever required. We checked in pretty late on the day we were scheduled to arrive but it was all hassle free. It was indeed home away from home. Coonoor is a must visit for the lush green beauty that surrounds you all across and this homestay is ideal to have a relaxed calming experience.

    Manju2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very peaceful place to stay. You can enjoy the nature of Ooty from here. The hospitality provided by the Aunty, who takes care there is great. The food she provides also great and less cost. When I stayed there I preferred eating there, rather out. This is also safe place for family.

    Ramaraj2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place with serene view of ketti valley .The food is really good.

    Ankit2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and the wonderful ladies at the house took good care of us, right from keeping us informed regarding the location to giving us information about the local places to visit, they were very kind and helpful. Their home cooked food was tasty, the rooms are well maintained and has ample space for people visiting with family. All in all a great experience and I would stay there again.

    Senthur Balan2019-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Good place to stay with great hosts. Communication is prompt and the place is easy to reach ( 7-8 kms before ooty) . Both the aunties took good care of us. They provided homemade food at a very nominal price. They showed us around their farm and made us feel at home. Would recommend staying here if you are looking for a homely place with good people and food. If you are looking to stay in a place with a view / particular about amenities / complete privacy, look elsewhere.

  • Sushill was a great host, he is super responsive and we had a pleasant stay at his property in Coonoor. The Bungalow is pretty spacious, the bedrooms have heaters and there are geysers for both the bathrooms. The kitchen had enough utensils and appliances to make pretty much any meal for a group. It is located in a small colony just off Bedford junction. The location is nice. The view from the terrace is pretty scenic, you have a nice view of the sunrise as the whole house is facing east. Larger cars will have a really tough time getting to the bungalow itself. Smaller cars will be able to get there and it can be parked within in the property itself. We had 3 bikes with us so we were able to park them and still have enough place for another car and a few bikes inside. From the bungalow a lot of common view points/points of interest are close by. So any group staying here will have a nice and easy time getting around.

    Amrithnath2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • I booked this place last minute and was really satisfied. The location was the best in coonoor - down a quiet street surrounded by local families and only a five minute walk to "Bedford circle" where you will find all the good places to eat and shop. Also walking distance to Sims park which was beautiful. I felt really safe in the area. The house was big and spotless clean. It has a beautiful sun room at the front of the house which looks out to the mountains. A huge upstairs terrace also looks out into the mountains. Also features a large kitchen and two other bedrooms and two bathrooms. I had previously stayed in a few nearby places where I had trouble with hot water, but the hot water worked perfectly here. They also provide a heater. As well as a Wi-Fi dongle. The furnishings were really homely, lots of wood and Traditional tamil style furniture. Sushil was a great help when making the booking and Satish was extremely helpful during my stay. I never felt hesitant to contact him or ask him questions or assistance. Nothing was too much trouble for him.

    Amelia2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • The place is bang on in the middle of Coonoor so you won't find any difficulty in visiting the nearby tourist spots. Most of them are at walkable distance from the house. The house itself is absolutely worth it. No complains at all. Will be booking this place again the next time I visit Coonoor.

    Sruthik2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this house. It is so spacious! The hosts were very responsive and helpful. We really enjoyed the neighborhood as well. If I'm ever back in Coonoor I would come back to this house. :)

  • Good place to stay !!

    Deva2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • If safety is your primary goal, then this is the airbnb home you could choose as it is situated amongst some of the best people in coonoor. The Ashirvad Colony where the home is located is one of the best residential places in coonoor. The super market, medical shop, hotels plus a doctor's clinicnearby. I spoke with the neighbors and they are cordial and almost every one in the locality is hospitable and helping. The home looks recently renovated inside and the low height bed was enjoyable for my little daughter. The host Sushil and his assistant Satish were always available and helpful. The water motor switch could be placed inside the home as mine was slightly long stay could not go out switch on the motor. Except for the one suggestion I would rate this place 6/5. I will keep coming and planning to stay for a longer term because of its sheer location, walkable distance to Sims park, on the way to lamb's Rock, dolphin nose, the flowering plants and of course cordial hosts. The books collection is ultimate, they range from biography of TTK to most romantic novels of all time. Amazon and swiggy are the real deal. Amazon delivers items here and I bought an emergency light but thankfully I didn't need to use it. Swiggy delivery is available to and the place is surrounded by good restaurants and coffee shop(Cafe coffee day is 10 mins walk). The location is a plus for the property. The narrow road can be negotiated by skillfull driver as it's isn't slope but narrowness is the challenge. I got my full size suv Captiva and I must admit it's difficult but not impossible. If in doubt seek help the hosts helped with a parking. The home was cleaned well, bed covers spick and span, kitchen was neat floor was moped.

    Coonoor, Tamil Nadu, India

    Nestled in the Nilgiri Mountains at 8,000ft, just below Doddabetta Peak, this self-catering apartment with a fully equipped kitchen has a master bedroom and a sleeping loft. Surrounded by reserve forest and tea plantations, the view is stunning. On the same property is the large house, Stumpfields, which also hosts guests when the owners are travelling, and a smaller apartment, Ivy just below Bilberry, that hosts two guests. While each house is fully private, the gardens and grounds are shared.
    Just 7 kilometers outside of Ooty town, this property is close to all the major tourist highlights but is secluded and remote at the same time. Away from the hustle and bustle of Ooty town, Bilberry Cottage is a family-friendly peaceful retreat, overlooking tea estates, wild forest, and mountain ridges. We have staff here during the day to support guests, and at night our staff are only a phone call away should there be any questions or concerns. We have well-equipped kitchens so you can cook your own food. If you would rather hire one of our ladies to cook for you please bring your own groceries and look at our" BOOK A COOK" option found in our house manual. We urge only resilient, nature loving, independent, resourceful, adventuresome people to book a holiday here. Our property is not suitable for guests who have major medical concerns, who are unable to walk 300 meters up a hill or who are very elderly. Its a wild and steep terrain, and at night you will not hear the noise of traffic, but rather the sound of wind in the trees, owls in the dark, rain on the roofs, bird and animal calls. While the evenings may have firelight, candles and electricity, once the lights are out, it will be pitch dark all around. When skies are clear the stars and moon are perhaps the most beautiful you will ever see. Its something about being in the mountains 8,000 ft high, with no pollution covering the atmosphere. Other times of the year, especially in the monsoon, its just incredibly dark. The mountains of Ooty are cool year round, especially at night. While the indoors are warm and cozy, the mountain air outside is brisk! For those who want room service, wifi, TV's, a restaurant, and 24-hour staff service we recommend you book a hotel in the town of Ooty. Come here ready to unplug from emails and the internet, TV's and movies, and try curling up by the wood stove with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Let your body and mind re-set and re-charge as you decompress and let the nature around you remind you there is a different way to live.
    We live in the wilderness, completely secluded with no other houses around, except Stumpfields and Ivy. However, since there are usually other guests on our property and staff present in the day time, you won't feel completely isolated. At the end of our drive, along a main road is a small village where the local tea-pickers reside. You can catch a glimpse of this village from the balcony of the cottage. We are in the middle of a totally undeveloped 10 acre piece of land that is surrounded by and overlooks government reserve forest. Our access to trails, extraordinary views, glimpses of wild animals and wide variety of birds in this high altitude rain forset and peace and solitude make our place unique among the overly commercialized, over crowded tourist hotels and inns in and around Ooty. We take pride in our efforts to protect the environment around our house. We keep our grounds and the surrounding forest and pastures around us clean with absolutely zero litter. We ask that you help us keep it pristine.
  • I have visited this place thrice already. Have stayed in all 3 properties - Ivy, Bilberry and Stumpfields. All 3 have its own charm. Please don't think twice before booking either of the three depending on the no of people travelling. I don't shy away from calling this my home away from home. You will be spellbound by the thoughtful touches, hospitality, dogs, balcony, swing, garden, and I can just go on. Waza and Allegria officially made me dog lovers. You will be surprised by how playful they are. Irrespective of the mindset you are in, a couple of nights here, and you will go back in peace :) Only prerequisite to Stumpfields and Ooty in general - An experienced driver :)

  • Amazing property with breathtaking views. The cottages are sparkling clean, have balconies with stunning views, and are adequately stocked. There are large lawns where you can loiter around or play with the hosts' 3 lovely dogs. The property borders the forest so you sometimes get to see Bison grazing around. I highly recommend this place for nature lovers who enjoy silence (definitely not a place for loud parties).

  • Would definitely recommend a trip to Ooty just to stay at mala’s wonderful home. Everything here is just perfect right and has something which will appeal to adults and kids too. Cant wait to be back.

  • Amazing place. It must be one of the best stay i ever had.

    Sunu2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • romantic, spacious, with a breathtaking view! the grounds are well manicured and gorgeous. do plan to spend some time at the cottage to take in the atmosphere. few tips: 1) i do recommend you get a driver or have your own ride. we arranged one at the bus station. finding an uber from the cottage is difficult . 2) bring some house slippers or woolen socks. the stone floors get cold in the winter. while the hot water in the shower didn’t last too long we heated our own water for a bucket bath quite comfortably. the fireplace was charming and we enjoyed curling up to it. Hari is such a helpful gent and a great resource! despite minor logistical inconveniences of getting there and leaving, staying outside of ooty is 100% worth the effort! We definitely unplugged, woke up to the sunrise cresting over the mountains, and breathed fresh misty mountain air. would def stay again!

    Sonny2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • The location and property are great with an amazing view of the hills. The dogs are very friendly and well-behaved. The only problem was hot water. The geezer takes too long but the hot water lasts only for a few minutes. Regarding food, the nearest restaurant (5 star) is 1.3 km away. Otherwise, you can drive down to the town, which is 6 km further. They also have an option of book-a-cook, but you need to get groceries. If these options are not feasible, you can just get something on the way back from the town and heat it up later for dinner; there's a fully equipped kitchen. P.S. Do not be surprised to see herbivores like bison, sambar, hare, etc. in the front yard after dusk.

    Amogh2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • A must place in ooty to stay if you want to enjoy the perfect countryside life. It has the perfect setup for a couple, a family or even for friends. Waking up to such an amazing view with such a well maintained garden is a bliss to the eyes. The caretakers Hari, Parvati and Devi will welcome with the sweetest smile and the three dogs will host you along. The provision of kitchen and the fireplace makes it extra special. The use of the such simple things to make it so gorgeous will definitely woo your heart as it did mine.

  • Firstly we were little scared to come down from a small and bit steep road towards the resort. While driving we were thinking , hoe and why this resort was built at such a location. To our utter surprise this was the place we get Excellent views of Tea Gardens and then we wanted to take a walk in the tea gardens of 4 acre where this property is situated. During walk we heard sound of Natural Waterfall while a stroll in the property area attracted us towards it. We were really delighted to be at this small fall and admire it. Quality service , right price make this place amazing experience to look for.. It was delight to watch starts in open sky at night and enjoy the blissness of being with just your family friends and get best services at this remote place. If u need a life, I suggest, you must come here atleast once and you would become a repeated guest like us..We are going to return soon with our friends soon...........

    Just a ten minute drive from Charing Cross, Ooty, on top of a quiet hill overlooking the surrounding hills, Ketti valley and beyond, receiving the sunrise everyday and the shadow of the sunset, this little bungalow is a paradise for a retreat or a getaway from the hustle of the busy and noisy life. It is a home, made to feel like home, for every guest that stays.
    The small roads on the hill are ideal for walks and cycling with almost no traffic. There is a couple that stays on the property that will cook (only breakfast) for the guests and guide the guests around Ooty if required. A cozy bungalow you will want to keep revisiting...
    It is close to Ooty as it is to Lovedale, and only a short drive away from any school in Ooty.
  • This is easily the best place to stay in Ooty, period. The view from this place is majestic. The caretakers, Martin and Manjula, are very helpful and kind people. We really wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely miss this place.

    Sourabh2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

The stay is definitely not inside the city and its close to nature:) Nights are very cold and the house is neat and clean:) Thanks swapna for amazing stay:) worth the price:)

    Naveen2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house. Make sure you keep an alarm to wake up to see the sunrise above the Nilgiri hills - breathtaking and you can watch it from your bed. Clean place. Simple and delicious breakfast. Getting meals could be a problem but Swiggy does deliver with difficulty. The caretakers are warm and generous.

    Jonathan2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little place to take a break from your busy and tiring sightseeing/tour. The hosts are very helpful. The property has a very nice view of hills and valleys covered with tea plantation. If the weather is good you can have a scenic sunrise as the valley is on the east. The place gets very quiet at night which I absolutely loved. !

    Samvasa on the hills, is a villa with a view like none other. Located at the tip of the mountain, the house overlooks the magnificent valley of the Nilgiris. Around 10 km away from the city of Coonoor and 20 km from Ooty, it is tucked away from the cityscape while being well connected to it.
    Our villa is located at the peak of the mountain with a view of the valley. We have two rooms, a hall and dining. The hall and dining have a glass front making the space open yet tucked away from the cold.
  • We had a wonderful experience at Samvasa. The pictures do not do justice to this place. Moreover, the caretakers Pramila and Anand were really helpful and hospitable.

    Gargy2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

  • It's an amazing place to stay, relax and chill. Caretakers are just amazing and get you whatever you want. View is just perfect and we didn't even feel like stepping out of this place. A must stay place.

    Raksha2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The beauty of this place cannot be expressed in words. This place has everything around it. One can see dense forests, tea plantation and pretty houses n roads at a distance and admire it all the time. Me n my husband went there on our wedding anniversary. We wanted to have a perfect lazy getaway n this was truly that. The place is 20km from ooty, located on top of the mountains which adds on the view and beauty. Pramila (the caretaker) is a wonderful person and cooks soo delicious meals. After trying the food we didn't have any meal from outside. Property is big n they have their own tea plantations. The living room has great view. During nights it feels like the ground is shining with stars.. You get the aerial view of entire city, the location is so promising.

    Rupali2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The place has excellent views and are much better than displayed on the website. Pramila and Anand are the best caretakers ever

    Nikith2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Samvasa for 4 days and I must say we will never forget the mesmerizing view and such an amazing hospitality at this place. The place is easy to reach, sparkling clean, has a very beautiful view around the house and the staff is very very supportive and helpful. Food served here is of great quality and very tasty. Host is very prompt to respond to queries and is supportive as well. Overall, this place has given a true home away from home experience to me and my family. I highly recommend !

    Kalyani2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Samvasa for a period of four days. It is certainly a holiday to remember as the location, hospitality, services etc. were top-notch. Wonderful property at the end of a hillside, with amazing views throughout the day. We had access to different weathers on all days - sunny, cloudy, foggy and the best thing was we felt we were pretty much part of the place. So serene. Also, the caretakers are doing a great job and they were highly hospitable. Amazing cook and we got to eat some good south indian food. Very accommodating as well with our requests for chai and coffee. They also directed us properly regarding sightseeing both in Coonoor and Ooty and managed to arrange commutes for us as we didn't have our own cars. Overall, a great stay and we would certainly recommend the place to fellow travellers.

    Pushkala2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • The place is located on top a hill, thus offering an amazing view of Coonoor valley. The caretakers took very good care of us and their home-cooked food was simply outstanding! The house is sparkling clean and everything is well maintained, with most modern facilities available. Highly recommend this for both couples and a small group of friends or families.

  • This places ticks all the right boxes. It is located in a beautiful valley and you have a view of the hills and a waterfall right outside your room! The room itself is neat and clean and furnished very thoughtfully. The food is a little expensive at 200 per meal but it makes up for that be being extra delicious! There are lovely walks all around and you can visit the waterfall that's nearby for a quick dip. If you're lucky you will come across bisons, monkeys and malabar squirrels. The stay itself is home to two lovely dogs and a pair of kittens that are a joy. Kotagiri is reachable from Bangalore by a direct sleeper bus from Mayura travels. You can get down at the bus stop and pay 200 to get to this stay by auto. As warned in the listing, there is small walk to reach the house itself. But surrounded as you are by all that greenery, that's something you would hardly mind...

  • Location location location. Resting atop a gorgeous valley, the place is as serene and peaceful as it gets. With gorgeous rolling tea plantations enveloping the house coupled with the amazing hospitality of Eshwar and Baby, it's well worth the budget.

  • The best place to stay. Choose if you have to stay far from all kind pollution, because this place gives you the peace of mind with fresh air and with only the noise of the private water fall and the birds chirping.

  • Imagine waking up to the whirling sound of a gentle waterfall and birds slightly tapping at your window. You wake up to a small herd of bison in the distance grazing on tea leaves. The only thing else needed for this perfect morning? Fresh tea with a homemade meal. Like the Eagle’s said about Hotel California, “You can check in, but you can never leave.” Perfect place for couples, groups, or travelers looking to escape and reset. Tons of hikes and little trips to keep you entertained. Plus, I could sit here every day and enjoy life - no need to go anywhere else. Can’t wait to come back.

  • Fuschia is paradise. The surroundings are so calm and beautiful and peaceful, and the hospitality of Baby and her family was so good. Their food is next level. Sharandeep was so helpful with logistics and advising us on public transport routes. Such an amazing place doing great things for the natural environment. We felt so at peace and at home there and would have loved to stay much much longer. Don't miss it!
