Feedback - Leisure Homestay We had 3 nights stay at Leisure Homestay and this was booked based on 8.2 rating at Bookings.com Let us look at the brighter side first . Property is located in a beautiful place . Vasuki is the contact point for the property and he interacts well with customers and tries to address issues / specific requests from customers . You may not get to meet him as he does not stay at the property. Once you reach property you would have initial interaction with owner Arun and thereafter everything is taken care by the local help ie Sannaiyya and Manjunath. There are activities within property like a small track for Go-kart, ATV, air pistol ( all on Payment basis) . There is small lake ( 100 mtr *50 mtr) where one can do boating and fishing along with a swimming pool close to rooms. There is a zip line across the lake but we were not confident as there were no safety harness provided. Only break fast/ evening tea and snacks were provided complimentary along with package . We got coffee powder complimentary from the property on check out. The boys taking care of us were really good. Local dishes like neer dosa, mushroom based korma and Meetha pan served along with dinner was liked by everyone . Sannaiyya and Manjunath are the only two guys available for support even though the property was fully occupied with guests. They were overloaded however you would find them providing all possible support. Morning breakfast was very basic with one local dish with rice item, bread jam butter and holige ( seems to be made with roti maker) even ghee was not provided with holige on our first day . We had to specifically request Vasuki and thereafter it was taken care . Any request for eggs/ omelettes were charged extra . We could not have campfire because of rainy weather however the barbecue that we ordered for evening was half cooked Al faham chicken. Though we shared the feedback this was charged in our bill. Snacks provided along with tea was just enough for a family of four . We were 8 members accommodated in three rooms still the portions of snacks were ridiculously small. On request they provided additional snacks but charged Rs 400 🙂. Dinner is again basic though there were two items of non- veg. We found the chicken curry being repeated everyday. The impression one gets of the property through website is really good but you would be disheartened once you reach property . We found most of the guests who checked in along with us had same opinion . Owner’s house is well maintained however guests rooms and areas around lacks maintenance. Special focus needs to be there on recreational facilities, dining hall, gym and the maintenance of go-kart. Kitchen is located at owners house and this is brought in a cart from there to guest’s dining hall. Boys needs to do lots of running around even to get a second helping. Property consist of 7 rooms with three single beds in each room. Other than soap and towel you may not find anything in these rooms. You have to specifically ask for shampoo/toothpaste . Rooms are small with no cabinets or even hangers to keep your belongings/ clothes. Though generator back up is there unless specifically requested that would not be switched on. We were most of the times without power supply. Property claims that they have WiFi facility in common area. We had two boys in the group who had to attend online classes on Saturday . Though this was projected well ahead of time we found that there was just a WiFi pod with 2 GB capacity which was not even charged. Only after speaking to Vasuki an alternate arrangement was made. Prime factor is that owner has very limited interaction and everything is left to the boys . There is room for owner to interact and seek feedback from guests on a daily basis. This would not only help him to connect with guests but also improve the quality of food and facilities. We paid ₹55721 for a family of 8 members for 3 nights which is about ₹2320 per person per day . I understand all good property providing decent services charge on similar lines. My humble request to the property is to enhance the maintenance of property and the hospitality extended to guests . This is a Homestay and I would expect more warmth than being run as a lodge .

From booking till we checked out, it was a very nice experience. We were 10 adults with 4 kids (4 families). We booked this place for a relaxing vacation after seeing the reviews on tripadvisor. This home stay has 7 beautiful cottages and too many out door and indoor games like Badminton, cricket, basket ball, shooting, boating, frisbee, darting board, carrom, chess. There is music system with place to dance and a separate place for Campfire too. We had a good trek in the forest like coffee estate. Mr. Arun was very friendly and highly accommodative. We decided to play cricket on the day we arrived and it was already over 6 in the evening and it was getting dark. The ball which was available was lost. So Mr. Arun went to the city to get us a new ball at that time and with in 15 mins we had a new ball to play. Food was excellent and good number of varieties were there. Also, for all my non-veg loving friends, he arranged very good non veg food for dinner and lunch. House keeping staff were very friendly and helpful. When ever we asked for anything like from Boost for kids, to extra beds, they provided everything with in mins.
