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.

This is a beautiful homestay where the only thing more amazing than the surroundings is the hospitality! Waking up and seeing the lush rolling hills right outside is truly a magical experience and not one my family will soon forget. The delicious local food and entertaining company provided by the hosts transforms Victorian Verandaz from just a homestay to a unique Kodagu experience.

Stayed there for 3 days, just me and my 9 yr old son.. right in middle of coffee plantation, this is a 150yr old house where some antique items are still preserved over generations.. Great hosts.. Diana Mam made sure we were comfortable.. provided great local cuisine for breakfast.. Thimmiah sir showed us around his plantation in his jeep .. great passion. Access road could be tricky but once you are in you wouldn’t really care.. A warm couple who genuinely likes to host and take good care of their guests .. thank you so much..🙏👍

This was an incredible peek into authentic Kodava (Coorg) life and cuisine, as well as a tour of Kodava history. The homestay has beautiful views of rolling hills and is cradled in nature. We had an incredibly clear view of the sky and even by moonlight we could see the many ranges of hills. We received personal tours which gave us a wonderful look into life as a coffee planter. From the homestay we did not hear any traffic, which was a great break from city life. Our hosts ensured that our stay was very enjoyable.

We as a couple were looking forward to a great vacation and I am glad we chose our stay at Victorian Verandaz. To start with, the owners are amazing people, so warm and welcoming. They made sure that we were comfortable by all means and the breakfast provided was just amazing!! The rooms are very comfortable and cozy! The best part of the stay is the ambience! What a beautiful place to live amidst the nature! A wonderful coffee estate which has its own view point, a waterfall within the property and the roads less taken which all nature lovers would want to explore. The owner Tim is a passionate conservator of Coorg culture and his collection of Coorg artefacts is just unparalleled! The warmth and welcoming nature of the owners would make you want to go there again and again! I would highly recommend to stay at Victorian Verandaz if you are in Coorg. This was my husband's third time and my first time at Victorian Verandaz.

What more could you ask for over a cozy stay with astounding view, beautiful garden, magnificently splendid coffee estate, unique and delicious food and on top of all of this, such a lovely couple as host. I had never written a review before but the experience at Vectorian Veranda made me write one. Initially I and my wife were hesitant to stay away from the city centre but when we realised that's where we are going to have a tranquil stay, it became easy to decide where we want to rest our backs. We came to Coorg (Madikeri) by bus from Mysuru and took a local cab to our stay. I step out of the cab, see the view and stand still, absolutely still. Not exaggerating, for few seconds I forget that I need to take my luggage out and pay the driver. Diana greets us, asks if we need coffee (so sweet of her) and we say yes, of course😅. We go to our room. It's not only clean, tidy and specious but it also gives that cozy comfort. We freshen up fast so that we can see the view for 5-10 minutes and have a walk around the estate. By the time we came out, coffee and snacks were ready. We sit there, finish our coffee but the heart is not over the view yet. We sat there for more than an hour but still not ready to stand up and walk around. I could not help but say to Diana, "it's a blessing to wake up to this everyday, isn't it?". She affirms, "indeed". Tim came after some time and took us for the coffee estate tour in his 1965 Mahindra jeep. Not to forget, Ozzy (the friendly dog) accompanied us throughout. Few highlights of the tour: 1. The enormous property is full of coffee, pepper and orange plantation 2. It has 2 natural and 1 man-made pond 3. A waterfall (isn't that amazing) 4. One more house where Tim's earlier generations used to live. Tim has preserved more than 100 years old coffee threshing machine, utensils, storage area etc 5. On their home terrace, they have created a mini-musium of all their year old belongings including and not limited to medals, golf clubs, machines used for farming, things used for home decor, cigar holders etc. Here we had an option of having home cooked Coorg styled dinner (early intimation and separate charges). We opted in. Every goddam thing on the table was scrumptious. And the dessert, made out of home coffee? (yes, a coffee dessert) was as delicious as it looked. For second day, we had a plan of leaving before 5:30 am for the Mandalpatti sunrise. By the time we got ready, breakfast was prepared, packed and kept outside our door. Not to mention, everything was freshly prepared and looked yummy. After a very long and tiring day, when we came back Diana was right there asking the most sweet-sounding question, "want a cup of coffee?"🤭 You know the drill that followed, right? View-snacks-coffee-peace. Third day before our check-out we had breakfast. Want to know the menu? Idli, sambar, chutney, bread, butter, home-made orange jam, coorg honey, coffee. Contented, period!!! Will I recommend this stay to my friends and family? Well, if I come to Coorg ever again, this is the place to be. Cheers to the lovely hosts Tim and Diana.
