2022 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
A verandah is typical of British colonial architecture. It allows us to enjoy the outdoors in a protected manner. We get to relax and enjoy the scenery, without being troubled by sunlight or rain.Victorian Verandaz is a pretty little cottage with a lovely verandah in front. It is designed for guests to rest and play in safety and comfort. This cottage is tucked in next to a planter’s bungalow. A bungalow that has played host to Coorg’s bold and beautiful for over a 100 years. Coorg aristocracy, British officials, army officers and planters have gathered here many a time. To discuss state affairs, hunt and feast.Victorian Verandaz is built on top of a slope and offers a view of thickly wooded slopes. Surrounding it, is a typical coffee plantation with lakes, a nursery, drying yards and the sounds of Birds.Let Coorg slow your heartbeat and make your mind sit back and rest in relief. Unwind in the pleasant climate at 4,200 feet. We extend you a warm welcome to Victorian Verandaz.

The 3 days we stayed at Victoria Verandaz are going to be one of the best experiences we had as a family. The serene location, awesome atmosphere give a wholesome feeling that connects us with the nature! The estate with the water falls, excellent view points that we enjoyed during the estate tour is the best we enjoyed while staying here. Seeing some of the oldest machinery, things used by the family ancestors during the house/museum visit is definitely not to miss! The sumptuous food served for breakfast & dinner are world clause. Getting such an amazing food at a holiday spot is something I have not heard of! For the first time my kids enjoyed an outside traditional food this much! BTW the Ozy-dog will take you for a beautiful walk in the morning 😍I would strongly recommend everyone to enjoy Victoria Verandaz atleast once in their lifetime!

It is a perfect place to stay in Coorg. Very beautiful place in the middle of coffee plantation surrounded by very beautiful nature. They are very lovely people you will feel like a home and breakfast is awesome. The rooms are cozy with all the amenities (Wi-Fi, hot water, power backup, gas supply with gas stove with all the kitchen wares, microwave oven is also present). We slept like a child and your morning will be welcomed by beautiful sunlight and melodious sound of birds and of-course with awesome breakfast. If you are going to Coorg then must stay here (you would miss a life time experience if you didn't stay here). I can say our stay was much much awesome that sight seeing. The dinner epically the pineapple curry they provided was just delicious. Thanks Thimayaa for everything, you are awesome.

Awesome stay, beautiful property and equally awesome and beautiful hosts. I am not sure where to start from, right from our arrival until the checkout and after, everything was more than awesome. Diana greeted us on arrival with a beautiful smile, rooms were perfectly clean, the scenery was mesmerizing. It was so quiet and beautiful and serene that we hardly stepped out. Thimaiah gave us a tour of the property, explained coffee plantation pros/cons and also walked us through the family heirlooms. Diana was so hospitable and asked us every now and then if we needed something, but otherwise they left us alone to wander around. The food was delicious! I mean I am trying to think of something which we didn't like or was a bit below par but couldn't. I read comments about strict timings, but we never felt any problem with that, in fact with early breakfast and timely dinner we had all the time to relax and enjoy. Ozzy is very friendly, and my son enjoyed a lot playing with him. To summarize, we couldn't ask for more, everything was marvelous, this review may be short, but the experience was simply great. We will definitely visit again.

This is a wonderful homestay in the midst of Scenic coorg... a real gem. It is a working coffee and pepper plantation , with work at full flow. As Thimiah , our gracious host mentions " there is no point in visiting Coorg unless you see the working of a plantation" and that is very true . He will take you around in his red 1960's Willys to show you the hustle and bustle of the plantation as well as the tour of his estate with its own personal waterfall and viewing point , His collections of antiquities is also amazing . Do engage in a conversation on golf as he is an avid golfer. The accommodation is basic but very good . Very clean and well locked after property with hot water and essentials provided .The hosts make sure that you are well looked after . They even provided with insect sprays to protect you against the elements . Diane is an amazing host and an even excellent cook. The traditional breakfast was yummy as well as the amazing dinner which was cooked and served to us . My desire for having a indigenous cup of black coffee was also catered too. I cannot stop praising the hospitality my old parents and me received at this property . Although this property is very serene , it is slightly off road. Hence the use of your own car or a taxi would benefit you. Alternatively Diane arranges it for you . This property was recommended by some friends who frequent it often and it did not disappoint . Would definitely visit again .

9 of us friends stayed @ Victorian Verandaz on the 12th Nov. The homestay has different accomodations to suit your needs. Near the house they have 2 bedrooms with a common dining room & verandah. They also have a Cottage Hermitage for a couple & Cottage Rustica for a max of 8 people nearby if one wants more privacy. Run by a charming couple Diana & CC Thimmaiah, Victorian Verandaz which is just 8kms from Madikeri has an old world charm & finger licking food. Situated in the midst of a coffee plantation, it's like living in the heart of nature. Thimmaiah's museum is worth seeing...a collection of antiques & items of a bygone era.

Victorian verandaz - was home away from home to us , to unwind from the busy , concrete,city life. Hosts, Mr. Thimmaiah and Mrs. Diana are absolute and enterprising. Mother nature welcomed us in the form of their homestay and coffee estates. Kudos to the couple for the culture trip. Their exhibit of ancestral heritage is exemplary. Neat and well maintained cottages, full fledged kitchen, the mountain garden is a surreal treat to anybody wishing to be at close proximity to beauty and experiential learning. Thank you Thimmaiah and Diana for the warmth and care. Best wishes to you

Words fall short to describe the amazing experience we had during our stay at VV. The rooms,linen and bathrooms were spic and span, Diana's cooking,Timmy' estate tour and the couple's hospitality was outstanding and the place and it's surroundings were mystical. A big thumbs up to Diana, Timmy and their team for making our trip to Madikeri memorable.

The Victorian Verandaz is a sprawling coffee plantation about 8kms east of Madikeri, managed by 5th-generation owners. My wife and I stayed at The Hermitage, a cute little 150yr old cottage with a well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable bedroom, and a huge bathroom complete with an antique Copper Vat of hot water, heated with firewood from outside, by a caretaker! We stayed 3 Nights and were extremely happy with the property. Rustic, clean, and away from the maddening bustle! Admirably taken care of by the owners, a lovely couple- the very friendly Thimaiah and his charming wife, Diana. And good ole Ozzy, the estate canine! Breakfast was a hearty homemade fare, dropped off at the cottage early morning in a basket that included Coorgi delicacies, bread, eggs, a carton of milk, and a bottle of fresh coffee decoction. We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for the actual experience of a homestay deep inside authentic Coorg territory. (They also offer regular room stays) The approach roads are smooth and comfortable. Though the final stretch of about 1.5kms is rough, it is motorable. And once you enter the gates, serenity and pure nature take over! The attached pics should give you an idea of the place. Just give them a call and go for it! You can reach Thimaiah at 9448059850 or Diana at 9449768800
