Kabbe Holidays

Reviewed 11 July 2017

Nice cottages, within walk-able distance to the hills and/or walking trails, lush green surroundings and great food (at the homestay). It's definitely a repeat-visit place if one loves nature and walking around hills (trails)... Also, reg. the road mentioned in many reviews - I drove down to Kabbe Holidays last week and the roads are excellent. Concrete slabs have been laid down and its a very pleasant drive to the homestay. It took me approx. 6 hrs from Bangalore to reach Kabbe holidays. Basic directions present on homestay webpage are more than enough to reach the place...

We chose Kabbe after reading a lot of reviews online. The one thing I was concerned about was the approach road which was planned to be completed before my visit. Unfortunately, it didn't happen due to various reasons so we had an interesting pick-up from the main road, walk 200m on a road under construction with the luggage and then on Dilip's pick-up truck. An alternate route was available but avoided due to slushy roads after recent rains. Kabbe holidays is a really offbeat destination and it is really lovely to see the place amidst the hills and enjoy the natural surroundings. Vidya and Dilip are very friendly hosts and we were able to connect on several topics with them.

There are only 4 rooms in total and we had 3 of them so we had the place pretty much to ourselves. The rooms are ok, comfortable but I feel that they could be done up a little better. While they preserve the antique look of the place, some modernization could help. Apart from that, the location and food just blows you away. The food is just exceptional fare - plain home cooked style but delicious. Vidya has trained her team well and they serve out something new and tasty everyday. I think we would all have gained a few kilos during our stay :). Walking trails - there are some interesting treks nearby. Dilip took us on one and the views are stunning. Wispy clouds kissing the top of nearby mountain peaks as you look over Kerala. If you are the outdoor enthusiast, you would love it. Since we were traveling with 3 kids, we limited the treks but they sure had a good time. The temperature up here is at least 3-4 degrees cooler than other parts of Coorg because of the mountains and vegetation. Loved the weather.

The place is very remote and cut-off from the nearby town hence do plan your daily activities well ahead. Plan what you need from the town before you arrive here. The 4-star is for the rooms and getting there but I would rate all other experiences superlative. One suggestion is that they could plan a bonfire in the large open space, that would be a unique experience for the guests.

Kabbe holidays is an excellent spot for travellers wanting to explore a place, culture, people and food. The hosts and owners Dilip and Vidhya made us feel like we were at a home away from home. This is not for the resort types touristy crowd but for the adventure seeking, explorers.

Totally recommended!

The homestay is in the midst of a coffee estate, about 280 km from Bengaluru via Virajpet. You can go via Madikeri too. The place is very pretty. The rooms are neat and the toilets are clean. We had been there in March, but the nights were cool. The hospitality and food was awesome. The four rooms can host 10 persons, but if you can adjust, some more can fit in. Vidya and Dilip are very good hosts.

Room Tip: Luckily, all the rooms are good
