So why choose a homestay?

and why choose ours?

Its sharing our home……

which is clean, comfortable, with a great atmosphere, home cooking, continental or Indian breakfasts, an outdoor sit out and roof sun terrace with lots of plants, two lounges, small library, fast WIFI, in a quiet residential area with super amenities next door and which is just ten minutes from the action in the city, such as the Palace and Market.

well what a wonderful time we’ve had….. same but different…. Now most of those who visit are returners, or those who hear about us via word-of-mouth, you are all our friends.

So its been the usual mix of fab guests from all around the world, with a significant increase in travellers from Canada. We’re now getting to the end of our busiest period and we’re feeling the heat a teeny bit. The photos taken of our guests on cycle (or other tours) and at our lovely home can now be found on flickr here.

Please just search for the album that corresponds to the date you were here (sometimes albums might overlap!) and feel free to download any photos you like. Any problems, can’t find or download please contact Stephen at tours@mycycle.co

 

Postcards

We’ve published high quality postcards of scenes from Mysore and Srirangaptnam, many found on our cycle tours. These are available at Mysore Bed and Breakfast and selected local stores including Dhatu near Kalidasa Road.

 

All our proceeds go to Asha Kirana trust to support their work in their hospital, clinic, through offering ART and outreach work for people who have AIDS or are HIV+

fond farewells

We absolutely love having our wonderful and diverse range of guests. There’s no continent which hasn’t visited us many times over, except perhaps the Eskimos and Penguins, and their neighbours.

I’m often heard declaring how it’s one of my best jobs ever (except it’s not really a job) because it’s providing great opportunities to engage and communicate with people and one’s input has perceivable impact which we can feel, real results. so it’s Fab.

As a consequence, we make good friends, our family extends and the BnB community grows, and when we say goodbye, so much, it’s sometimes sad.

Yet, you know, we wouldn’t change it.
So thank you to all our wonderful friends.

here’s a few of the over 1700 of them here

 

more of our guest photos can be found at  our photo albums

Art inside the book!

Our guest book is a lovely read. It helps remind us of the startling range of lovely people who have crossed our threshold and brought Wonderful connections into our Mysore life. Well it’s also a hidden source of even more art! Thank you.
