A three-decade old family-owned plantation bungalow; the bungalow has been totally re-furbished with two additional rooms added in an adjoining cottage!
In the bungalow, the walls are pale ivory, the ceiling polished wood and the floor tiled in mosaic; reminiscent of the colonial days! The veranda has a classic terracotta tiled floor with terracotta lined walls

Common facilities housed in the main bungalow include a lobby with a television set, living room, dining area. All guest suites have modern washrooms with individual solar water heaters. The cottage is a modern iteration of the classic bungalow has two modern mini-suites.
The bungalow has primary and secondary power back-ups to address situations! While the main bungalow has a beautiful veranda overlooking the paddy fields and the lakes at a distance, the cottage has a semi-private veranda in the front overlooking the estate and private rooms at the rear with a direct view of the lakes!
Food is traditional Coorg or Kodava, with some cuisines from the neighbourhood thrown in.
If the guests can get around to stepping out from this luxury home, activities include an estate walk, where one can learn the deepest secrets that make a fine cup of coffee.
A walk or a Jeep drive to two lakes offers another kind of adventure and excitement! For those who really want to venture beyond their comfort zone, the famous Nagarahole National Park and Tiger Reserve is 15 km by road; but merely 2 km away as the crow flies!The Tholpetty Wildlife reserve is again just 15 km away. Irupu falls, a naturalist's delight is a 25 km away!
The plantation, ponds, paddy fields, game sanctuaries are what photographers dream about!It is needless to add that after the day's tour around the various sights of Coorg, the evenings will be around a camp-fire where there is sheer revelry.
With only the stars for company on a clear night, it will be an ecstatic experience in the middle of nowhere, where the air is so pure, that the lungs hurt!
The bungalow is set amidst lush coffee plantations and over-looking paddy fields and two enormous water bodies. Around the house is an orchard, a blend of various hues, flowering plants, lawns!
Away from the deafening and polluted cities, the only sounds audible are the chirping of birds, the occasional sound from a herd of deer
While the early morning experiences are almost surreal, with the sunlight attempting to peep through thick fog; at night, trumpeting of elephants can sometimes be heard at a distance
