We chose this place for a get together / offsite with few of our colleagues, and also as a farewell to one of our colleagues moving on.

Let me first comment on the location and the access. I was having an apprehension of being this property away from SH91 (State Highway), but realised that the 3 km distance from the intersection to the home was a smooth road, and an experience to drive.

Once we reached our destination, we felt the drive was worth it. This place is nicely tucked away from the hustle and in a quiet location on the mountain side with lots of massive trees.

There are 4 main rooms which are part of 2 cottages, and these are outside the main home where Dilip (our host) and his family is living. Rooms are very well maintained. Few rooms has a small attic with a bed, and I'm sure the kids will love it.

The best part of our trip is the connect we built with Mr. Dilip, as he was so kind to share his vast knowledge/ experience, and also gave few tips around quick exercises for relaxation. He also took us to the nearby mountain, which is a good uphill trek, which can be easily managed with kids also. The views from there are spectacular.
On the same day, we went down to a nearby brook, and realised how the overall environment can make you tranquil.

One of the evening, we also had a coffee estate walk, and this was also a lots of knowledge gathered, especially on type of coffee, how, when, what will be considered, processed etc. We also visited Dilips’ parents who is also living closeby, which was also a great feeling on how well-bonded the entire family were.

Our 2 days and 3 nights just got over in a wink, and each one of us committed to return to the same place with our families with kids, as we don’t want them to miss this place.

Thanks Dilip for all your help and cooperation to make this stay a very memorable one. Just missed to comment on the food, which was just yummy.

This is one of the most beautiful places I have stayed in! Dilip and Vidya are the perfect hosts, the surroundings are stunning, and the food is awesome!! While leaving, I told Vidya that coming to Kabbe was like visiting my mother's home--filled with comfort and warmth and love. I have no doubt that I will be visiting again. This is a place that settles down in a corner of your heart and beckons you again and again.

We had a very pleasant stay at Kabbe. It’s the last estate before you reach stunning nature, by walking 30 minutes you reach the hilltops where you get the view of Kerala’s and Karnataka's mountains. We spent a weekend at Kabbe and it was an amazing get-away from the city. Very nice hosts and great food! Good variation of Indian dishes and the best dosas we’ve eaten, and we’ve tried many. We also learned a lot about coffee cultivation and production. Really recommend it!

I cant overstate how wonderful this home-stay is. Kabbe's quaint immaculate garden-fringed cottages are nestled in a lush forested coffee plantation offering amazing hill views, with a steady gentle background score that mixes silence, the murmur of the Chelavara falls and birdsong. It's a fantastic place to unwind, disconnect, rejuvenate and reconnect. What makes it a perfect getaway is the exceptional family who host you. Dilip and Vidya are amazing people, who are warm, affable, accommodating and wonderfully witty. They will ply you with heartwarming local cuisine, regale you with tales of the Coorg way of life and take care of you like old friends come to stay. They offer guided walks of the plantation and can suggest great outings in the Coorg hills. Have the fireplace or the barbecue going in the evening, and you will have an evening to remember. Go for a hike up to Kabbe peak or to Chelavara falls for serene misty green vistas. Sink into the chairs on your verandah and do nothing. All in all, a perfect getaway. The drive from Bangalore takes about 7 to 8 hours, but the road is great. They have driver accommodation as well. Cottages have all the comforts of modern life, including hot water, a refrigerator, an electric kettle and plenty of charging points. The portico of the main house and the dining area has Wifi in case you need it. If going to Coorg with friends or family or just your partner, this home-stay cant be recommended enough.

Room tip: If you have kids or are a group of friends, go for cottages with the bunk beds in the loft that have to be climbed up to.
