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.

oh, and we’ve been no 1 in Mysore on Trip Advisor for five years

according to India today these are the ten top reasons to choose a Homestay here

 

Flowers and Gardens
Mysore is known, in Indian terms, as a tier two city, with around a million residents It feels, however, more like a town than a busy metropolis. One of the reasons it has this human-scale is its gardens, tree lined avenues and lakes. Where we’re based in Siddartha Nagar (or layout), a residential area just ten minutes in auto rickshaw from the Palace, at the centre of the city, we’re fortunate to have a series of gardens with one just opposite our house.

We’ve also put some effort in to creating our own garden on the roof and ensured you’re welcomed by greenery at the front gate.

Our potted plant roof garden, at its best over the winter, is a great asset for the guests. For a drink in the evening, place to meet our other guests, watching the fruit bats fly over in the evening, and generally chilling out, its one of our communal sit-out areas

Mysore is also easily accessible to gorgeous rural areas with fields and rivers close by and national parks a little further away. Our most popular cycle tour is on Srirangaptnam where you can get a good feel for rural life.

Stephen and Lucie

I’m just back from the Uk and recent guests have asked Manjula and Vasanth what does Stephen do? well clearly not very much as these guys have just proven they can organise the BnB without me here, Vasanth manages the transport, Manjula the BnB and now we have Anant to lead the Srirangaptnam tours. so the answer seems to be.. he does nothing… 😉
