“A rare jewel...”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

That little drive up the mountain covered with coffee estates on the way to Thippenahhali Estate sets the perfect platform to what you are going to experience the moment you enter the estate. In fact, you will say that the drive was nowhere near to what you will be greeted at this estate that is surrounded by nature, by its class and its rich heritage.

From the gate to the garden, from their fountain to the surrounding mountain, from your room to the dining room, every bit of detailing has been put to place by this very suave, down-to-earth, very approachable and extremely knowledgeable hosts Ravi and Meera ensuring utmost comforts to their guests. They make you feel at home and certainly define the phrase “home stay” for you.

Go experience the nature at its best, people at their best and most importantly the calmness, quietness and serenity this place offers. This place is one of those rare jewels that is affordable and one that leaves a lasting expression on one self for a long time.

This place is now a part of my annual travel plans.

One piece of advice, DO NOT STAY MORE THAN 3 DAYS AS CHANCES ARE THAT YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO VACATE FOR EVER.

Great place inside the coffee estate. Higher priced cottages (outside the main house) are w-a-y better than the rest (only slightly economical). Agree with most of the positive comments by other reviewers. However, we did not have the benefit of enjoying the warmth of the host family. It is possible that they are tired of meeting complete strangers or were busy on those days. I would recommend them employing a manager to handle day-to-day affairs and manage the staff-members that mostly speak Kannada ("gotta illa" for us). That person could also give a guided tour of the coffee estate and tell us about food that is served (local cuisine?). So, the visitors would go back not only with unique experience but with some firsthand knowledge about coffee farming. Moreover, we could have also avoided the embarrassment of requesting the lady of the house when someone forgot to put toilet rolls!

Room Tip: Choose cottages Arabica and Robusta over cottages Kent and Sandromon

Initially we had booked the low end rooms. But once we reached there and saw the individual cottages, we were left breathless!! They had such an amazing view facing the imposing Mullyangiri peak that we immediately upgraded to those cottages.

They were nice old heritage type cottages reflecting the culture of local architecture. It had a nice balcony with easy chairs perfect for an evening sit out. The food served also had local cuisine and was very tasty and served nice and hot.

Apart from the beauty of the setup and the spacious and luxurious rooms, the thing which stood out most about our stay was the hospitality offered. You actually feel like being at home as guests of the family. The hosts were very cordial and would always make it a point to visit during the meals and give company. They even gave us a tour of their ancestral house which was more than a 100 years old. It was a very nice and warm gesture by them

I would definitely recommend this place to people looking for a nice weekend break

Any first time experience will be cherished for a long time if it is a happy one. we wanted to experience a home stay for the first time and stayed in tippanahalli home stay from jun3to5.
It was a very rewarding experience as you are made to feel at home with good food well maintained cottage. The view of mulyangiri hill from the verandah of Arabica cottage was indeed breath taking. Waking up to the calls of several birds instead of an alarm from the cell phone was very welcome. The morning walk in the plantation was enjoyable.Dog lovers may enjoy the dogs' welcome barking during the walk but others advised to check the time/route for morning walk beforehand.

Room Tip: collect road map to mulyangiri from the host

We checked into the hotel on an evening. The family was very hospitable and had prepared the room for us very well. The location of the place is excellent and the buildings were built in the old colonial style. They had good options for recreation like TT board, walker's track (in the coffee estate) and gardens. The food was good as well.
