100 year old house, Great place, warm couple, awesome food....simply relax and enjoy at this place away from the noise...the estate is maintained impeccably and the hosts are very warm and adjusting...their coffee is to die for in the morning...thoroughly enjoyed.

Room Tip: go for the 3 bedded rooms...worth the money

Went with family and friends to this charming 100 year old bungalow in Ammathi. Run by the Cariappas, the bungalow has two large bedrooms (sleeps 3) and two smaller ones (sleeps 2). The bedrooms are well appointed and the bathrooms are very large. The lawn is immaculate with some beautiful flowers, overlooking the coffee plantation owned by Mr Cariappa and his brothers. The food is outstanding and is personally served by the hosts. This provides and ideal place to read, have long chats, ruminate (and put on weight!). Don't expect any interruptions from mobile phone calls as you don't get a signal.

Went in as a vacation with family of 4 adults and 1 toddler. Overall a great place if you want to just break free of office hustle bustle.

Location: A little off the road, this beauty is nested bang in the middle of coffee estate. It is a slight walk to get to main road, though we didnt have to head out without the car quite often so we were okay. The place has a small lawn and each room has a very small sit out area which is very pleasant early in the morning. You can go for a walk in and around the estate if you like and see the usual coffee shrubs.
Rooms & Amenities: Rooms are old style and we got the ones in Annexe built later than the old bunglow. Being a homestay at a hill station, this didnt have anything you would expect in a hotel - no TV, AC, Fridge in the room. Perhaps for the better. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The bed was king sized though the mattresses werent all that thick.
Food: Food is cooked by their regular helps and the menu is very limited as you would imagine in any household. It was a little spicy for our taste but gives you a good feel of local cuisine. Breakfast & Dinner is served in a very limited window in the dining room and lunch is not served at all so you have to get out to fend for it irrespective. The only grouse that we had was that with a 2 year old kid who was scared of the confines of the dinning room, the hosts didnt allow us to carry food to the room.
Service: Practically unavailable to the room. You have to go to the main bunglow to get a water refill. Happy for some and troublesome for others, depending on your preference.

I enjoyed waking up to birds instead of horns and it was a great experience for me. The kid really took a liking to the pet dogs and that helped him settle in a little better.
The hosts carry with them a great family legacy that they are proud of and are very straightforward. A tour of the artifacts from the legacy is in order if you request.

Overall, I would love to go back just for the location and its serenity.

1. Very beautiful homestay. Kariappa family is a genius - excellence in sports, arts and hospitality.
2. They have decorated the homestay very well.
3. Comfortable cosy rooms.
4. She is strict about timings for breakfast and dinner. (which is fine considering maids servants availability). This is NOT a resort so do not expect treatment from various servants.
5. It just gets better when she serves dinner. So delicious and variety of dishes.

Approach road is a bit tricky but once you know your way, there is so much to explore.
They have 4 dogs which are left open from kennel in night. So do not venture out unless you inform them.

Overall - Definitely recommended. I just came back yesterday and already thinking when to book the homestay again !!! :)

It was an amazing stay at this place... perfect place for relaxing your senses and having great time with family. Icing on the cake was hospitality extended by aunty and uncle both as we enjoyed every moment of it. Stay was very comfortable and food was yum, specially the "palputu" which was authentic corgi food (first hand experience but a good one ) ... Thums up for this place as we relived every moment right from playing badminton to taking walk across the coffee plantation ... Great journey ...
