This is a very beautiful homestay with fantastic hosts. It is everything that was promised and much more. The location is very quiet and the little house has very cosy everything that was needed. Preethi is an excellent cook and went out of the way by cooking us even when she herself wasn't feeling very well. Mr Raveendran generously drove...

We recently made a trip to Kodaikanal for a family holiday and stayed at Serenita ! We had a lovely time with the host Ravi ( Mr Ravindran) and his wife Preeti. They are just a wonderful host and a very charming couple! We never felt that we are staying not in our house but somewhere else. Preeti is a...

Thanks so much folks for being so thoughtful! It was indeed such a pleasure to meet and spend quality time with you. As I have said before, makes it totally worth everything we do. Going back to their crazily busy lives once they leave Serenità, folks have stopped posting their reviews more or less and we are compelled to survive...

Serenita is an excellent place to stay if you are looking for a peaceful time with your family or friends. Just like an outhouse with all required amenities and yet with maximum privacy. Clean room and toilets. Amazing view brings chill to your mind and most of all, Ravindran and his family was exceptionally supportive and gives us a feel...

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
Car advised
