Overview
Private Room , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Kodaikanal, Dindigul District, Tamil Nadu
An exclusive and tranquil Homestay with Bed & Breakfast type of accommodation a short distance off the ghat road, well before the hustle and bustle of Kodaikanal yet very close to it. Serenità Homestay is peacefully perched on a serene and secluded hillside offering an exhilarating view.

We offer only a single accommodation suitable for a Couple or a Nuclear family at this point in time which means total privacy.

The Accommodation comes with an attached bath and a small kitchenette and is furnished to make it comfy and cosy (If your partner finds the room too cosy and wishes to lounge around while you want to be up and about, we will help you drag him/her out of bed for a nominal fee). It has an independent entry from our driveway, a small covered patio and a private lawn with outdoor seating. We designed the accommodation to make...

Interaction with guests
True to it’s name, this is our home and we live here through the year. We are more than happy to interact closely with our guests but at the same time leave that choice to them. Food is served in the room as requested. The whole idea here is to share our experiences while hearing out our guests as well.

As you drive up the busy Kodaikanal roads, you realise that the quiet hand of change spares no place. Serenita, nestled quite obscurely in the hills though tries to give you a chance to experience moments of quietude. Add to that the hospitality of Ravindran...More

About the neighbourhood
Serenità Homestay is perched on a secluded and serene hillside overlooking the Pethuparai valley and the distant Palani plains. Accessible by an asphalted road (not the best of roads!), one can come in by their own vehicle or a cab...for those really adventurous, one can trek too...be prewarned about the gradients though coming in is mostly downhill. Situated inside a gated property, the place is as safe as it can be, parking is no issue as this is not a thorougfare. The only neighbours we have are a few farmers way below (you may wish to give them a lift when they ask for it...) and a neighbouring house whose owners come in probably twice a year
