So, this was my second trip to Coorg and me and my friends decided to spend our 4 days break from our hectic schedule at Gowri Nivas hosted by Bopanna and his family.

In a nutshell, it was the perfect place to spend our long weekend. We were received by Bops (Bopanna) who was very helpful in providing us with directions from the start and once we reached, we were greeted by the lovely black Labrador the family owns - Rowdy (He is one of the most docile and silent dogs we had come across). Bopanna and his mother were there to greet us and show us the cottage which is in the same property but offset from the main house in the middle of a plush, green garden with adequate space and privacy. As for the rooms and space, it had the old charm and grace of vintage houses with latest amenities which was really comfortable. The housekeeping staff were very prompt in responding to our requirements and Bops took the time out from his busy schedule to come and check up on us, and was very helpful in giving us recommendations on where to go, which places to see and where to get good coorgi food from.

Another reason for loving the place was, though it is a very silent and independent place, nestled in the garden, it is still a stone throws away from the main market and other prime sightseeing places, so location wise also, it was a good choice.

It was a really wonderful experience and I think the next trip too will definitely love to spend at Bop's and Muthu's Homestay - Gowri Nivas.

Our stay and experience at Gowri Nivas was nothing short of exemplary! Muthu and Bopanna were excellent hosts and we had a great time interacting with them and spending time at the homestay. Bopanna was gracious enough to let us take a walk through their plantation, about an hour's drive from the homestay. The property is very well-maintained with beautiful architecture that allows you to soak in the fresh cool air while you wake up to the chirping of birds every morning. This place is ideal if you want a quick getaway from your city life. We are sure we will visit Gowri Nivas very soon again.

We have been to Coorg many times but it is the stay that makes it extra special. This time we stayed at Gowri Nivas hosted by Bopanna and Muthu who ensured our stay was memorable. It is a lush green and vibrant homestay even though it is in the heart of Madikeri. Even though we did not do any sight seeing we enjoyed a relaxed stay at Gowri Nivas. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully designed, the breakfast was simple, delicious homely food. We enjoyed talking with Bopanna, his mother, and Muthu who made us feel at home. They have an adorable son Ahaan and playful dog called Rowdy, who was a wonderful addition to the stay! Bopanna was also kind enough to invite us to their estate which was about an hour from the homestay in Kakkabe. The estate is beautiful and has a lovely stream running through it. It was a wonderful walk through the plantation. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Gowri Nivas!

A very cozy and comfortable Homestay hosted by a very sweet family. They serve very yummy food and are conveniently located near the Coorg bus stand. We have stayed here twice and the place has been maintained so well. I would recommend to anyone who wants to spend their holidays in Coorg.

Authentic cottage stay with no frills. The hospitality shown by hosts is commendable.
Rooms were neat, a little bit rustic but authentic.

The hosts live in the main cottage while the one they rent is detached and has a little path leading to it. The path is between a well maintained garden with beautiful flowers.

There is a timing for hot water but hosts Muthu and Bopanna are very accommodating.

There is a black dog who may appear intimidating at first but is a very nice and docile one, name was Rowdy I think.

No issues with parking and it’s very close to Hotel Le Coorg.
You can check with hosts about food or can order through Swiggy.

Our stay included a complimentary breakfast which included cornflakes, milk, honey, eggs(requested for both boiled and omelette and hosts readily obliged), bread toast, butter, idli and sambhar.
Sambhar was an absolute delight and really delicious. It was the best one we tried during our trip of Mysore and Coorg.

You know you have caring hosts when they are waiting at door with plates and spoons when your Swiggy delivered order arrives. Thank you Muthu.

We were on transit to Madikeri and found this beautiful, cosy, and aesthetically designed property tucked away in the hustle of the town. The icing on the cake are Mrs. and Mr. Bopanna, who played the perfect hosts even on last-minute notice. Our takeaway is that we met one of the warmest people with a keen eye for detail. Their idea of hospitality has made us friends for life.

We recently spent a weekend at Gowri Nivas. It was one of the best homestays ever. The entire family which included Muthu, Bop, Ahaan and Rowdy (the doggy) were amazing to say the least. The place is extremely beautiful and well kept. The food was so good that we could hardly stop eating. Our 7 year old son and their son became such good pals in a few hours that he did not want to leave the place at all. Rowdy is a super sweet and fun doggy. We look forward to visiting the place again :-)

Charming little cottage tucked away in a little lane in the middle of the town. Muthu, her family and staff are lovely hosts, kind enough to accomodate all of one's requests and needs. Strongly suggest checking with her for tips to get the most out of your trip to Coorg. The attention to detail at this homestay is top-notch. The place is immaculately clean. Breakfast is a feast. And the tea is perfect (thanx Muthu 😁).
2 days were certainly not enough for this place.
