This is exactly what one looks for in a home stay.... I have lived in 3 other homestays in Coorg, however this one wins hands down. Beautiful!!! It is one of the most well maintained properties I have seen, exactly as seen in the pictures. The house is so tastefully done, each and every piece in the house appears like it was meant to be ‘only’ in that place. Clean, neat and tidy.. the entire house including the homestay rooms. Fresh linen, laundered towels.. and very well maintained bathrooms.. come very very close to that of a 5-star property. The layout is so good that you get your own privacy and at the same have access to every facility. Amazing!!! That’s what I can say about the food… Homemade to the core, be it the local delicacies or a preparation of your choice. I had

I don't recommend this homestay for any reason.. firstly it is very isolated. We had to spend most of the time in travelling from the home stay to the city center. And the hospitality was miserable. The food was pathetic. We had to eat upma for our breakfast.. i don't think at least any south Indians would be interested to have upma in a home stay. We dint enjoy our stay in this place at all. And i think the food charges were pretty expensive and the food was not at all worth it.

We were on a family holiday and what a disappointment it was. First of all, the hotel is not in Madikeri as claimed in the website. Be prepared to travel a minimum of one hour from Madikeri. It is about 50km from Madikeri in a tiny hamlet called Cheyandane. When you do reach the place after a tiring journey, there are no signboards to lead you to the place. We had to go up and down and finally after several enquiries, we could locate the house on top of a hillock. The rooms were neat, but we had paid for extra beds @ INR500 each. The so-called beds were too short for our kids that they had to share our own beds. There were no tubelights in the room, only incandescent lights which was quite a pain even for casual reading. Power failures were so frequent. Whenever the power

We were a bit surprised how long it took to get there from Mysore, but it was worth it. We went to Ashraya for our anniversary, looking for a quiet and peaceful getaway. It was tranquil and beautiful. Swathy adjusted the menu to our American tastebuds (we had both Indian and Western food for breakfasts), and it was delicious. Mr. Aiaippa gave us a delightful tour of the plantation. Our morning walks along the road wound among coffee plantations dotted with teak and jungle oak trees. It is a two-hour drive from Ashraya to Ravi Ghandi (Nagarahole) National Park, which we visited and loved. Other sights are closer, but we didn't make it to them. Be sure to try some local honey.

I was a solo American female traveler who has been to India many times: I was looking for a relaxing vacation in Coorg. After much research, I decided to stay at Ashraya Homestay, and I'm delighted that I did. All of my email inquiries were answered promptly by Mrs. Swathy Aiyappa; she was so helpful and kind. Mr and Mrs. Aiyappa's home was lovely and comfortable. They offered excellent company and conversation, but also let me enjoy my time alone whenever I wished. Their coffee plantation is gorgeous; I enjoyed long walks along the local roads, looking at coffee bushes, banana and coconut trees, and so many interesting plants and flowers. And the food was AMAZING! The most delicious home-cooked food I had in India. So, if you are 1) traveling alone, 2) from a foreign

My husband & myself were doing a Road trip from Mumbai to down south and Coorg was one of our destinations, we decided to choose a homestay at Ashraya. We had the most amazing experience, Uncle & aunty went out of the way to take care of us. The location is gorgeous as u look into coffee plantation, tall trees & hills... practically one can sit outside the house & just gaze thru the natural beauty. The rooms & bathrooms were very clean & spacious. It was a true homestay where we got introduced to coorgy culture, we visited the ancestral home & the temple were all special ceremonies are held. One word of caution - watch out on your weight as Aunty servers the most delicious food that after one meal you wait what special is being prepared for the next meal and not to miss the

Me & my husband had a wonderful holiday at Ashraya Homestay, Coorg. It was perfect. Our Host Mr. Aiyappa was awesome & patiently answered all our questions. He also suggested places that we could visit during our stay. The food was superb, we got to taste the traditional pork curry, bamboo shoot veggie & akhi roti..We felt completely at home.... A special thanks to Soumya & leela as well who were the housekeepers. We are looking forward to staying at Ashraya again...

My wife and I visited Coorg in December 2009 and stayed at the fabulous homestay, Ashraya in Cheyandane, Coorg. The experience surpassed all our expectations. The Aiyappas, were amazing hosts who patiently answered all our queries and were most enthusiastic in helping us plan our time there. Their hospitality was unforgettable. The food was superb! We feasted on the local delicacies like akki roti and pork curry, had homemade honey and preserves laid out at breakfast and enjoyed the estate grown coffee.. it kept getting better!! The optional lunch / dinner meals were very nominally priced. In a place like Coorg which doesn’t have cafes or restaurants around, we were lucky to find a place that excelled in food! Our room was spacious, with plenty of room for luggage,

I was planning a holiday in Coorg with family (wife & two small children aged 6 & 3 ) and wanted a homestay in a estate where we could show the children how trees grow and about coffee picking etc Our stay at Ashraya (Chudamani Estate) with the Aiyappa family (mr. Lal Aiyappa & Mrs. Swati Aiyappa) was the best decision i could have ever taken for this trip. It was a lovely estate house nestled on top of a small hill with a interesting drive up. Uncle & Aunty went out of the way to make our stay comfortable and were particularly patient with our two naughty children who had questions about everything . A special mention of the home keeper's - Leela & Sowmya who tolerated us & the children and kept us up with those lovely cups of coffee & the delightful kodugu cuisine. Uncle

Had a fabulous trip to Coorg. Stayed at Ashraya. Check out website at ashrayaincoorg.com. It is important to call in advance so that you are not disappointed. Lovely house in the middle of a coffee estate. Wonderful hosts. Never felt like leaving.
