The Coorg Chalet, A Family Homestay, run by a local Kodava family, is located in Madikeri city, in a serene neighborhood with a mountain view. The rooms have private bathrooms that come with free toiletries. Other facilities offered at the property include free WiFi, a shared lounge and a fitness center. ENJOY COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST COOKED AND SERVED IN THE HOME KITCHEN BY THE HOST. Home cooked traditional Coorg/Kodava style dinner is also available on request, with extra charges (kindly make the request/place order at least four hours before meal time). Distance to tourist attractions: Raja's Seat 1 km, Abbey Falls 8 km. Thalakavery, Dubare Elephant Camp, Kaveri Nisargadhama and Golden Temple (Buddhist monastery) are within 45 km. Madikeri Bus Station 2 km, Mysore Railway Station 120 km, Mangalore Airport 140 km. We would be happy to provide all kind of assistance in travel planning, sightseeing vehicle arrangement, Restaurants, etc. Guests will have access to the entire house, kitchen, bathrooms other than the attached ones, living room with TV, dining area, etc. Even though our neighborhood is located just 2 km from the center of the city, it is in a serene area without any noise/air pollution with a mountain view from the balcony of our place. There is convenient public transit as we are situated just 2 km from bus stand, 2 minutes walk to auto rickshaw stand. We can even arrange for taxi to pick up from our place. We would normally prefer family or group of friends including men and women (kids also) and avoid group of only boys/men looking to party. Although we do not mind responsible drinking (alcohol) by family guests, we would like to avoid group of men/boys who would want to party in the house.

If visiting COORG (madikeri) you can trust this place even with blindfolds on. Just 1.5km away from the market and 2km away from famous sightseeing destinations. Its my 4th visit to Madikeri and "Thelma Studios and Chalet" is the first thing that comes to my mind while planing the trip. Mrs.Thelma leaves no stones unturned in satisfying the guests. Its always a pleasure to meet and talk to her. The breakfast provided is very delicious and you can even put forward and special request if you have. My betterhalf was down with illness during the stay and Mrs.Thelma allowed me to use her personal kitchenette for cooking meals for her. She even suggested me the best doctor in town and was even ready to take us to the doctor if we asked. Its a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED place for everyone, from young couples to elderly commuters.

It's a nice homestay if you are visiting Coorg. They don't serve you Lunch or Dinner, just breakfast is available. If you are expecting a Hotel kind of buffet breakfast think twice. They just have 2-3 option for breakfast. One of the hotels menu is available in the homestay, this is Odiya guy running a restaurant, with a home delivery time of 15-20 mins. I never had the experience of staying in a Homestay so decided to take one, it would have been a great experience provided the room would have been a glowy and attractive. But still a good experience. If you get a chance to choose room please don't select the room down stairs. Go for the upstairs room, the view from above is nice. Also a bit away from the heart of the city. Auto Rickshaw ride takes Rs.30-40 for pick or drop to the center of the city.

Location is very nice. Rooms are very clean. The USP of the stay is the affectionate family. Mrs. Thelma prepares the best breakfast. It is so good that you will not feel the need to have lunch. We are surely going to come there for the best stay

Good location easily commutable from Madikeri town center through local auto. Thelma maam and her entire family were very courteous in welcoming us and showing us the rooms and describing us about all other amenities being included and provided. Never miss the breakfast - it's too yummy you could eat your heart out and skip lunch if you feel so :) Got all the information regarding nearby tourist attractions, food joints, easy commute options etc...

Hi , This is a homestay located in a peaceful line . You will just fall in love with the architecture of this building . The host is also very good she receives you well and clarifies any doubts you have. Dont trust the wifi here. I asked the host the password of the wifi and it stopped working 5 mins after she told us the password. when asked about this the host told some problem with the internet provider . But I feel something fishy there. So better to check it.

We stayed there as a family for three nights from Dec. 11 - Dec. 14.. Actually we planned for 2 nights, which was extended to 3. We were given a quadruple Room in second floor.. it was very good.. the breakfast given were rare dishes which was very yummy. My four year old kid really loved the breakfast.. it was delicious.. I must mention about the hospitality of Mrs. Thelma and her family.. they were so kind.. got so impressed... me and my family loved everything.. 24*7 hour water facility, TV, dressing room.. everything was good.. you can reach the town from here within 5 min... Very nearer to Raja seat.. we will recommend this place to families if you want a safe and homelike stay.. thanks to you for making our stay memorable...

We stayed with Mrs. Thelema Kariappa at her house for 2 days. She's an excellent host and takes care of you. They provide a room at the Ground Floor of their beautiful house which has a direct access. The Room is pretty good with two large beds and an attached bathroom with heater. She also provides home cooked Kodagu breakfast and Free WiFi We had a very comfortable stay at her house. You should stay at this homestay for local experience
