  • Description


    We are nestled in the midst of a 20 acre coffee plantation inter cultivated with pepper. We also run what we call a Homestay in India which is just a B&B in the Western world. We have wild elephants crossing the estate, off and on.

    Me, Nimi and my husband Viju are the owners and sole proprietors of our establishment. We have travelled and we are both foodies so we like to share what we have with the rest of the world with like minded people. We also have an open kitchen outdoors so that our guests can also share their kind of cooking with us.

    We have a large garden which needs constant care.

    What else ...

    We have set times for meals and our volunteers would have to adhere to the timings.
