Awesome well managed property with everything you expect from a homestay. Surroundings will give you a chance to connect to nature. Rooms, bathrooms, dining and common areas are tastefully done and well managed by owners and way above some of other homestays.
This could have been a 5/5 experience but for few things which some of us did not like such as:
- Limited veg snacks/food on offer, specially on the new year eve
- Cost of buffet per person is little bit on the higher side
- Owners expects guests to be respectful of schedule but it can be difficult if you are in vacation mood and travelling as a big group.

Overall it was a good experience and a memorable one.

An early morning walk across the Polaycad estate is an exhilarating experience. The nip in the air during the month of May and the natural beauty of the foliage is a walker’s delight. Even the moderately inclined botanist will spot the orange, lime, guava, sapota, fig, avocado and jack fruit trees amidst the vast expanses of coffee and pepper plantations.
Robin and Malligea Cariappa are wonderful hosts and they took special care to make our stay comfortable and the food cooked to our liking. Robin is an accomplished sportsman who missed qualifying for the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games in the triple jump event by a whisker. He also played hockey as a centre forward at the national level and is the Captain of the Golfing Society of Southern India.
The Polaycad bungalow, situated on a sprawling 160 acre plot, was built in 1920 by Robin’s father. The property has been beautifully maintained; many of the furniture pieces are over a hundred years old and the walls and flooring have been preserved all these years with changes made only to the bath room tiling and fittings. The food served during our stay was excellent with a wide variety of traditional dishes from Coorg which included pandi curry, paputtu, akki roti and kadabu.
We reached the Polaycad estate by road from Bangalore in approximately five and a half hours over reasonably good roads although there were some rough stretches. We needed to seek directions to the estate once we reached the town of Ammathi in Coorg (Kodagu). The Cariappas don’t advertise their home stay very much and there were no name boards or signs to guide us to the estate.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and spacious and the food was excellent.

You drive off the main road from Amathhi and enter into a mature coffee and pepper plantation. In the centre of the plantation, at the end of the road we see this lovely red tiled period bungalow. On the paved courtyard in the front, part of the estate's coffee crop is drying in the Sun. and our hosts, Robin and Malligea Cariappa, are waiting for us. My wife and I took one room and stayed for three nights (there were no other guests at the time) at this enchanted property. The room was clean and comfortable and so was the large modern bathroom. The Cariappas were the perfect hosts and Mrs Malligea's Coorg cuisine was outstanding, pork, mutton, chicken and fish, we were spoilt for choice and no item was repeated during our three breakfasts and three dinners. Mrs Cariappa went out of her way to procure Coorg's gastronomic specialities for us to carry back home, in addition to giving us some delightful plant cuttings. We went to Orange County for lunch, which was very nice, but Mrs Cariappa.s gastronomic efforts were truly fantastic. We would recommend this homestay without any reservations.

We booked all the 4 rooms for our group and stayed there for 3 nights. What a memorable experience! Great food - prepared according to the local coorg cuisine. Really mouthwatering, and the flavors linger on in the mouth for a long time.
The hosts are the finest people you might meet in your life. So caring and friendly and always smiling. Took care of many small things and gave us a great tour of the estate.
Overall, a memorable vacation. Many thanks Mr & Mrs Cariappa!

We visited Coorg with 2 other families few days ago. The stay was the best experience for us. The place is beautiful and located amidst Coffee plantation making the stay perfect away from the town hustle- bustle.the place is very tastefully decorated. The hosts were wonderful. Their hospitality made our stay home away from home. one gets up in the morning to the chirping of birds. The place is visited by may different kind of birds and has beautiful flower collection. The Coorg cuisine was very good. We all have decided to surely visit this place again only to stay at this place for a few days. Thank you Mr Robin and Mrs Malige for a wonderful stay and making our trip a very memorable one.Visited coorg with 2 other families. the stay was the best experience for us. the place was beautiful and located amist
