The SpaceListed by Conde-Nast as one of the top 30 eco-resorts in India, staying in one of the 7 rooms on this working tea plantation is a feast for wildlife and birdwatchers. Bordered by the Nilgiri biosphere, you can spot birds like Hornbills, Indian Gaur and even elephants! Close to Mudumalai National Park , the famous Blue mountain toy train and the hill stations of Ooty and Coonoor, this could be your base for exploring the beauty of South India. Guest AccessA full-time host and experienced tea planter who lives in a separate bungalow on the property. Interaction with GuestsI am available for nature walks and general guidance on the area but will not intrude on your privacy unless requested. The NeighborhoodThe mountain ranges of Nilgiris are lush and verdant with tea bushes on their slopes. Comfortable weather all round the year and an abundance of wildlife and birdlife.

The SpaceSometimes , you just need a break,in a beautiful place . alone, to figure everything out in life . These are 2 beautiful prefabricated steel house with a big Hall apt for nature lovers & travelers who wish to take a break from the hustle bustle of city life . If you are looking out for a busy road, with lots of shopping , restaurants etc, then this is not the place you want to visit. Entire House is INR3980 per night upto 4pax and Rs500 per extra person and sleeps Max of 8 to 10. At one time Ooty was know to be second best climate in the world but now air quality is poor in Ooty but still much better then other mega cities all around. So we choose Kotagiri a city which is just 25 kms away from Ooty. If you are thinking this trip will be your escape to perfect utopia , our stay & ambience would give you that . During Peak season its common sight many people vomiting same time due to motion sickness. Across the streets people eating down the road you will see them throwing up. I'll advise if you suffer from high altitude or motion sickness then travel empty stomach. Driving on a scenic winding hwy from Kotagiri to Ooty you can see purple haze on horizon, pollution from Bangalore and Mysore sits there. If any one says Ooty, Coonor and Kotagiri are beautiful little sleepy town then I would say either they are either in Denial mode or talking about past or this is the best they have seen. I don't believe in putting icing on the cake. Well, lets get to place where you are gona spend your vacation called " MYSPACE" just to get a feel that its gonna be Your Space . I reiterate if your are city person there is nothing here for you. You will be bored from surroundings and regret on your decision or who ever told you about this place. By the same token if you love grandeur of nature , bogged down with crowd, traffic and don't want to spend too much money then we will be in love at first sight. There are no shops and restaurants around but aren't you sick of them? Anyway These cabins are Large, with attached very clean baths, each cabin got king size beds,Also each bath got hot hand shower with gud pressure thanks to pressure pump, bucket bath are not bad . Color combination ,wooden flooring high end plumbing fittings. You can also enjoy the view from the front hall /Sun room just to kick back or do nothing all day and rest after that in the evening. For wild life lovers watch heard of Bison's, lots of birds etc. Only animals I have seen are Bisons, Wild boars, Deer, rabbits, one time heard of 16 Bison. Just to be on record last sighting of a leopard was on evening around 7pm of Nov 7th ,2014 by me for about 2 min with car light . As far this place goes you can go on mild to moderate hike to Gundada Road and entire circle takes you back to pandian park . or if you are courage's enough then park your car and take a walk down to end up seeing a beautiful stream running thru , You can also walk on a trail to village called Thanthanadu usually village people will welcome you for tea or coffee to there homes. You can do all the shopping in Kotagiri and stack up or order daily morning to a guy called loganathan who delivers in MySpace from newspaper , milk to chicken etc . Staying here is brilliant idea to save money simultaneously you get your pleasure of staying in beautiful setting with awesome beauty around, you go to bed in peace and wake up to the sound of birds. When you leave you will leave with a sense of Solitudeness . Staying here Eve Ensler saying applies " “Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don't want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you're doing here. Believe in kissing." . To continue about the space , Can't buy beer or hard liquor around need to get it in Kotagiri only . Please bring Flash lights, pen drive with some movies and books you always wanted to read. Please do not littler, have respect for next visitors and environment. If you happen to visit Myspace during June/ July better chances of eating fresh Pear fruits which surrounds your cabins ,all the shola trees ( Indigenous trees) . Morning and evenings are very pleasant. Do not wonder off during afternoon. Over here UV rays are very strong and you can get heat stroke. Wish you have a pleasant stay .. Regds Nisha Guest AccessWi-Fi, Kitchen, Camp Fire with BBQ, Ample Parking, Non stop Hot water . we have cook and maid, who can cook you meals upon request. You can buy what every simple raw food you want and the lady here will cook you quite delicious food for. If there is large group then you have to pay for extra added help, cook charges 500 Rs a day to cook you breakfast, lunch, dinner including pampering you. I feel this is deal, cook is under sold , they are happy with this money. They are very good in cooking S Indian meals. You won't be disappointed, if you want to indulge yourself please do that by paying a nominal fee of Rs300 for using kitchen . I have observed guests taking classes from these ladies. I totally admire her devotion to cook and clean. If you are bigger group there will be additional help and additional cost. Cook can stack up refrigerator with advance notice. We have very limited amenities no sushi bar but can cook fish, no chicken rolls but chicken curry mild or hot. No lintel soup but Dal. If you are smoker then bring smokes and matches, no smoking in the rooms please. I tried very hard to make this place immaculate and very comfortable for guests. Over the period of time I have observed that local people from this area are poor but very honest and will not hesitate to give you helping had in a heart beat, they will bend back words for you. PLEASE BRING FLASH LIGHTS. If you have to take auto from Kotagiri it cost you around 180 to little over 200 In the end my two cents, if you can get involved in protecting forest and poor people that would be great. Rich tea estate farmers around don't give a damn for the very fingers wrapped in home made bandages with cuts and developing arthritis plucking tea all day long under hot sun or rain. Most of the tea pluck-rs live in the shacks also under the old rusted tin roof due to poverty and minimum wages which are not raised for long time. While tea estate owners have awesome homes, which is great, they earned it. There kids study and live in western world. If you walk by ladies plucking tea be kind to them they bring your morning cup of tea. Please feel free to give them a tip if you want, they have been kept below poverty level systematically. Please do not push your luck, nature can be harsh. You can get seriously hurt jumping rocks. There are no doctors around so don't push your luck. Night life can be made beautiful by sitting next to the bon fire as you prepare Barbeque with friends chewing old memories would be fun filled and in the end those would be the most enjoyable & memorable moments. I have stacked up dry woods for the bon fire use them wisely since we need to cut trees for refilling it . Barbeque charcoal alone costs Rs100 per pack. Interaction with GuestsI stay in Coimbatore and doesn't stay here much, so far I have met only few guests, care takers are here to take care of you and to interact with you. I am sure there are things we can go better, feel free to contribute your advise to caretaker. Your contribution will help future travelers. Personally I like to interact with nature & wildlife more then human beings. Bisons , Leopards , Bear come and go on there free will, I personally prefer that. Some day there will be herds of Bisons and other day none. So far I have not heard any complains from guests. There is always room for improvement, anything you observe is not right please feel free to raise voice. Your concerns will help us to serve you better in future. I strongly recommend for only those who love nature & wild life to visit here. The Neighborhood"In order to understand the world, One has to turn away from it on occasions " I love this place because for couple of reasons , you can be in a quite serene and quaint place . Especially in India it is hard to find very quite places without human imprint and ear deafening noise everywhere. Over here there are not much vehicles move , so u sense the solitude ness . Winters are very nice and moderate . Summer can be warm . No air pollution or noise pollution around. Big towns around are quite polluted and dirty. Ooty and Coonoor is not what it use to be. During high season in summer streets are packed with tourist shoulder to shoulder with water shortage in hotel rooms. should go for a drive to kodanadu around 6pm to embrace mist .. Getting AroundTo get to this place you have to arrive to Kotagiri which is about 1hr from mettupalayam & 40 min from Ooty by car. From Kotagiri you can take either Auto for 150 Rs or cab for little more. There are couple of buses come here two in the morning hrs and one in the afternoon. If you have a car then you can take day trips to Ooty, coonoor and Kodanad view point. On reaching Kotagiri Bus stand travel down further in Ooty main road until u reach Pandian park , take right go further up (if you are travelling from ooty pandian park is before kothagiri buastand take left ) and keep left until you reach CSI Thanthanadu Church . Our property is just adjacent to the church. Other Things to NotePlease bring Flash light or any thing which is important for you like medicine etc. You can do all your shopping in Kotagiri to stack up refrigerator, I rather have a man to deliver grocery, vegetables, water etc . If you miss something you have to drive back to town to buy something very basic like tomatoes, garlic, coconut etc. I have a lady who is thr care taker & good cook , she is very picky how to cook. Only choice you have is to tell them hot or mild. Please feel free to give her suggestion to cook something new. She probably will save you money. There is no charge for this it will be good if you toss her tip. There is natural spring around and water is pumped from it directly to overhead tank. I drink water from the tank after boiling else You have to buy water bottles or get it delivered . Cell phone works very poor but internet works good . Its very common I get e-mails with phone number to call back. E-mail Id's and phone numbers are deleted automatically. Don't expect call back. If you have boots which you have not used in a while, collecting dust, bring them. Hiking boots will give you good grip also prevent injuries. During Monsoon season leaches are common, they are harmless, they love sucking on your blood, carry salts and they will drop. This only applies if you are out in the woods for hiking etc. They are all over Nilgiries. Bring head cover. Air quality is good here, in general oxygen levels would be less so take deep breaths whenever you struggle for oxygen , offlate around Ooty city and on roads it is becoming difficult to breath. due to heavy diesel traffic. Most vehicles are gross polluters. Dark monoxide, carbon dioxide fumes are common behind most of the automobiles. At times it is hard to breath air which is one of the dark side of new age Nilgiris. Good old days are gone. I've observed thousands of tourist coming and making Nilgiris dirty. It's common sight to see bus stopping on highway and people eating packed food they bring out side bus and tossing all the garbage on the street. Better to stay within Kothagiri .

The SpaceWe offer seven beautiful cabins with attached baths for nature lovers & health conscious travelers alike. Also its a paradise for bird watchers. If you have any health issue that prevents you from walking short distances apx 300 meters on walk way , this isn't the place for you. Each cabin is 1800 per night and provides accommodation for two people not three. At one point in time this entire area was internationally deemed as the second best climate in the world after Pasadena, California. Gone those days and it will get worst. This place 'Fuschia' (named after the beautiful non indigenous flower in a bell shape) happens also to have many of these flowers in a huge spectrum of colors. There is a Hindu temple which is right next to parking lot, over a period of time local farmers have planted tea on the road, this causes an inconvenience to walk, but at the same time it's a little historic reflecting it's original state. You have to walk 10 min from the parking lot on a nice scenic trail to reach the cabins (I love calling this an automatic tread mill). But once again if you have difficulty walking also if your are city person there is nothing here for you. You will be bored from surroundings and regret on your decision of coming here. By the same token if you love grandeur of nature and don't want to spend too much money then you will be in love at first sight. There are no shops and restaurants around but aren't you sick of them? Anyway these cabins are Large, Medium and small with attach very clean baths, each cabin got king size beds, one small cabin with smaller size bed but two can cuddle. Also this is not the place where you want to measure the size of the cabin but vastness of outside beauty. Also each bath got hot shower with low pressure, bucket bath is way to go with geyser heated water. This place is zero star, to me this star ranking system is good for cities. In old days there were no star system and people live quite nice lives in villages compare to artificial life we are pushing ourselves into in cities. This is back to basics concept and coming here you are going back in time. Jack London, Shakespeare and list goes on who lived in simple cabins or cottages, which probably helped sharpened there brains. Anyway bathrooms got color combination tiles, granite, high end plumbing fittings, very colorful wash basins which I picked up from Thailand. You can also enjoy Gazebo/Sun room just to kick back or do nothing all day and rest after that in the evening by the fire side. For wild life lovers watch heard of Bison's, lots of birds etc. Only animals I have seen are Wild boars, Deer, Porcupines, Rabbits, one time I counted heard of 33 Bison, Leopards and vast variety of birds. Just to be on record last sighting of pair of leopard was on evening of Feb 8th ,2015 by me and Gardner Sandhu for about 5 min with flash light across the creek. April 26th evening all guests saw pair of leopard at distance, Feb 2016 we saw three bears. September 18h our dog was taken by Leopard right in front of cook and gardener, they are size of golden reteriver or little bigger but never heard attacking cowns cows or animal, only active at night. I saw two with flash light and they walked away, made my evening and I consider my self lucky enough to sight them. Seeing animals and birds is healthy sight since they are loosing there homes to viscous human beings who are not hesitant to kill them, cut forest and burn. Personally me working hard for past few years won the battle but lost the war. When you come here you will see what I mean. As far this place goes you can go on mild to moderate hike to waterfall or if you are courage's enough then climb tall mountain right in front of you, you can also walk on a trail to village called Bibin, usually village people are very welcoming and will invite you for tea or coffee into there homes. Also to make you feel better all the money you give for these cabins eventually trickle down to poverty driven people who were born in poverty and after working hard all there lives still living in poverty. There lives are almost like modern day slavery, dark side of this paradise. Especially women who pluck tea leaves under hot sun or rain and get paid very little. Surprisingly they always have beautiful smile in spite of going through never ending hardships unlike people in big cities. Anyway you are not coming here to end world hunger but to enjoy your time so lets get to the point. This place is little bit off the beaten path and very few people live around this area. If you like inner cities person then again this is not the place for you. I don't want to discourage you not to come but same time bit concern if this is a good match for you. Since there are no shops all around here so you can do all the shopping in Kotagiri and stack up the refrigerator. Mostly its the caretakers who goes and do shopping for you to kotagiri market and pass on the bills to you of what ever price they paid plus small profit on top, but still your meals price is not that high. Since they really know what to buy and what goes into southern cooking. They charge you little money for auto charge also for there gas bill etc. Its quite a task to bringing groceries back down hill from kotagiri. I am personally hardly involved in doing anything around here other then to communicate with you and pass your phone number to Ishwar. Staying here is brilliant idea to contribute to poor, simultaneously you get your pleasure of staying in beautiful setting with awesome beauty around, you go to bed with noise of waterfall and wake up to the sound of birds. When you leave you can be proud of contributing towards not so privileged everyday life people in Nilgiris. Staying here American novelist John Muir's saying applies " A day spent in a nature is a day added to your life". If you have more then a back pack or carry on's then guys will be courteous enough to give you helping hand. I am sure they will appreciate tips too. People around are very humble and down to earth. Do not arrive when its dark. Can't buy beer or hard liquor around. Please bring Flash lights, books you always wanted to read. Please do not littler, have respect for next visitors and environment around. Some lady I never met tossed dirty diaper in the tea estate during there stay, I hope she never comes back again. Since it is such a small place no guarantee you will get cabin. Oh by the way water fall doesn't look as nice due to deforestation. Some people especially coming from cities buying land have no respect for nature and they are not hesitant to cut trees which took years to grow in 5 min. Land without trees look bare and horrible. Forest around here with old matured trees is diminishing very quickly, wild animals loosing there home. Criminal actives in cutting Shola trees ( Indigenous trees) is quite common here especially by outsider not the locals. This is crying shame, we talk about vanishing Amazon forest but this is happening right here in Nilgiris. Unfortunately none of the rich tea planters all around raises voice or concern over deforestation. But if labor working in fields demand bit more money in wages that is four letter word to them. Anyway morning and evenings are very pleasant. Do not wonder off during afternoon. Over here UV rays are very strong and you can get heat stroke. If you are not is good shape don't attempt to go on hike especially heavy smokers. Most of the time I am not here but just in case if I am here and I happen to be driving to Kotagiri then I would love to give you ride from Ooty to Kotagiri. Also if you need help with pick up and drop off there is a real nice guy who got small Maurti Van and he can take you around sight seeing etc for fair price also pick you up from Coimbatore train station or airport and drop you back. Same applies to hikers, we got pro who know Nilgiris like back of his had and all the ikes in this region, his name Anil. Guest AccessOnly cooks we have can cook you meals upon request. If your are more then couple of people then you have to pay for extra added help 400. Cook charges 400 Rs a day to cook you breakfast, lunch, dinner including pampering you. If you skip our lunch still the price is just the same I feel this is a deal, cook is under sold :} especially for the location they are happy with this money. Please let Baby (cook) go around 9 P.M since she has to cook you breakfast also. You can eat as late you want, there is extra help to serve you late. Also there is another guy who take care of you or run around doing misc things for you also hauling your luggage up and down from. He is happy with the tips. If you want to have bon fire in the evening it will cost you apx 200 rs. We don't cut trees and wood comes from city or left over from pruning tea. If you come in large group then there are couple of ladies who are very good in cooking S Indian meals. You won't be disappointed, if you want to indulge yourself in cooking please do that. I have observed guests taking classes from these ladies. I totally admire there devotion to cook and to clean on top sun dry all the dishes after washing. We have very limited amenities no sushi bar but can cook fish, no chicken rolls but chicken curry mild or hot. No lintel soup but Dal. If you like to drink coffee late night or early morning then ask Baby for Hot water Kettle and small coffee packs. If you are smoker then bring smokes and matches, no smoking in the rooms please. I tried very hard to make this place immaculate and very comfortable for guests. Over the period of time I have observed that local people from this area are poor but very honest and giving. They not hesitate to give you helping had in a heart beat. If they help you in anyway please feel free to give them a tip. There is pile of plastic all over in Nilgiris and its very common site when pile gets bigger to get rid of all the plastic someone will start fire and all the toxic chemicals goes in the air we breath here. Oh yes one more last thing all the pictures of beautiful Nilgiri mountains or rolling hills you see on your coffee table books or travel magazines are only for coffee moment, in reality lot of nice place have been turned into concrete jungle in very bad taste. Some old buildings so called British Bungalows are still very charming to look at. PLEASE BRING FLASH LIGHTS. If you have to take auto from Kotagiri it cost you around 200 Rs. Please do not push your luck exploring too much too quick, nature can be harsh. You can get seriously hurt jumping rocks around the waterfall. There are no doctors around. If you forgot something or need something from town there is someone always going there and can bring you what for no extra charge. Interaction with GuestsI personally don't live here full time, so far I have met only few guests, care takers are here to take care of you and to interact with you. I am sure there are things we can go better, feel free to contribute your advise to caretakers. Your contribution will help future travelers. Personally if I have a choice I like to interact with monkeys more then human beings. They come and go on there free will, I personally prefer that. Some day there will be 20 of them and other day none. If monkey are around keep your cabin close or they will get in for your snacks, they have good taste for Frito lays chips, chocolates etc. So far I have not heard any complains from guests. There is always room for improvement, anything you observe is not right please feel free to raise voice and tell them. Your concerns will help us to serve you better in future. I strongly recommend you not to come here if you are not strong enough to go up and down on very mild/moderate walk for about 300 meters or if you are a city person. The NeighborhoodI love this place because for couple of reasons , you can be in a quite serene and quaint place . Especially in India it is hard to find very quite places without ear deafening noise everywhere. Since there are no roads around so you don't even hear traffic. Winters are very nice and moderate. Summer can be warm . No air pollution or noise pollution around. Big towns around are quite polluted and dirty. Ooty and Coonoor are not what they use to be. During high season in summer streets are packed with tourist shoulder to shoulder with water shortage in hotel rooms. There are lot of restaurants in Ooty also fast food chains like Domino Pizza, Subway, Baskin Robins South Indian restaurants especially Ananda Bhawan. Its good Idea to get out and take day trip to Coonor and Ooty. If you go to Ooty visit Vegetable market and fish market. You really get good fish there and Baby will cook for you. Also its fun to take small train ride from Ooty to Coonor. Its called blue mountain train. Credit goes to British bringing train to ooty going back century. Please keep in mind this is small place middle of nowhere and can accommodate only few people at a time. Things can go wrong, power failure due to storms, monkeys can get inside the kitchen. So far haven't had any crises. but this applies to every day life in Nilgiris. Avoid long hikes if you are not in a shape, especially during hot sun. Avoid going too close to bison to take pictures. This area is free range for Bisons and some days there are lot of them and some days non. Its really fun to ride small train which is also called Blue Mountain Railways, it runs from Ooty to Coonoor also from Ooty to Metapalaum via Coonor. Locomotive enthusiastic comes from all over the world to ride steam engine which is Apx over 100 year old. If it was not for British we wont have these trains running today. Getting AroundTo get to this place you have to arrive to Kotagiri which is about 40 min from Ooty by car. From Kotagiri you can take either Auto for 200 Rs or cab for little more. Couple of buses comes here from Kotagiri morning and afternoon. If you have a car then you can take day trips to Ooty, Coonoor and Kodanad view point. My personal opinion about towns in Nilgiri Dist is quite low. If you get to see some old pic from the early times they are quite admirable. Now cities are overcrowded, heap of garbage is common site, plastic is everywhere with no proper solution how to dispose it off, you will see sign saying plastic free Nilgiri which is BS. Quality of air is very poor. Traffic Jams are common and you will be breathing exhaust form diesel vehicles like in any other cities in India. Volvo Buses from Bangalore are very comfortable and reliable. From Coimbatore if you have to take cab it cost anywhere from two thousand rupees depending on size of car. Other Things to NotePlease bring Flash light or any thing which is important for you like medicine etc. You can do all your shopping in Kotagiri to stack up refrigerator, I rather have couple of women do shopping for you, they know all the raw vegetables, spices they need. If you miss something you have to drive back to town to buy something very basic like tomatoes, garlic, coconut etc. They are very picky how to cook. Only choice you have is to tell them hot or mild. Please feel free to give them suggestion to cook something new. They probably will save you money doing shopping. There is no charge for this it will be good if you toss them tip. There is natural spring around the cabins, I drink water from there. You don't have to buy water bottles, spring water gets filtered. Cell phone works good and we have 4 G. Its very common I get e-mails with phone number to call back guests, but on Airbnb E-mail Id's and phone numbers are deleted automatically till reservation is made and accepted by me. So don't expect call back if you have not made reservation and charged your card. If you have boots which you have not used in a while, collecting dust, bring them. Hiking boots will give you good grip also prevent injuries. During Monsoon season leaches are common, they are harmless, they love sucking on your blood, carry salts and they will drop. This only applies if you are out in the woods for hiking etc close to water body. They are all over Nilgiries. Bring head cover since it can get hot during around noon, sun is strong. Air quality is good here but around city and on roads not too good, due to heavy diesel traffic. Most vehicles are gross polluters. Dark monoxide, carbon dioxide fumes are common behind most of the automobiles. I've experienced at times it is hard to breath, and looks like smoke bomb went off. Good old days are gone. I've also observed thousands of tourist coming and making Nilgiris dirty. It's common sight to see bus stopping on highway and people eating packed food they bring out side the bus and when done tossing all the garbage on the street.

The SpaceThis is a newly constructed 2-bedroom villa in a by-invitation only limited edition Luxury villas Riverside Dreamscapes spread across green acres in the Nilgiris. The villa is set in a big plot with front and large back lawn area, big enough to play badminton, do tent pitching etc.. The open air fireplace is just perfect to cosy up with a drink in the evening and enjoy the quiet beauty of the Nilgiris serenity with sky full of stars. There is a covered car park and enough space to park few more car parks in the driveway. Bedrooms are large and medium with attached very clean baths, each one got king size beds with high-quality mattresses, pillows and linen. Each bath got hot shower with good water pressure. Each of the bedrooms has attached balcony overlooking the lawns and great view of the green slopes. Living and dining rooms are separate and both have large glass walls on two sides for you to enjoy the views all the time. There is small open air deck for you to enjoy your coffee in the morning sun or dine under stars in the evening. Fully equipped kitchen, a laundry room and a servant room with separate entry. All interiors are tastefully done – modern yet blending and warm – mainly wood furniture, wooden flooring and ceiling, high end plumbing fittings, shower panels. Villa is located within a gated facility with peripheral fencing. Support services are on call for all essential services. People are very nice and the place is safe for a relaxed holiday. But then we are on the periphery of a forest. So, lots of birds and occasional herd of Bison’s – harmless animals as long as you don’t disturb them. You can go on mild to moderate hike to waterfall and if you are courageous enough – take a refreshing dip in the stream (natural Jacuzzi). There is also a walking trail to the club house through the tea plantations. The caretaker is a very good cook of north Indian cuisine and reasonably good at south Indian & continental. Breakfast and tea/coffee will be available always. He can prepare snacks / lunch / dinner on advance intimation at reasonable cost. You also can have meals at clubhouse with advance intimation. Typically, expect a cost of 500/- per meal per person but could vary depending on what all you would like to eat…. The important point to express your preferences in advance so that provisions are procured from town and stored accordingly. If you are smoker then bring smokes and matches, no smoking in the rooms please. Guest AccessBe at home and you have access to whatever is available. Fridge is typically well stocked and few items may be available at cost. We have badminton rackets, a small tent and few flash lights. You can use what’s available. There are tennis courts within the complex and you can use them but please bring your tennis racquets/balls if you would like to play tennis. Club house serves meals on advance order and you can use the facility. Interaction with GuestsI personally don't live here full time, care takers are here to take care of you and to interact with you and to show you around. If I happen to be there, it will be my pleasure to meet up and interact... The NeighborhoodI love this place because for couple of reasons , you can be in a quite serene and quaint place . Over here there are no roads around so you don't even hear traffic. The views keep changing by hour from bright sunny to misty foggy to cloudy. Clouds form and appear from nowhere and within minutes engulf the whole place only to disappear quickly… On a clear night, you can be sure of watching sky flooded with stars…. People are very nice and honest … a bit lazy but then relaxation is in the air here. And above all the place is very safe and you can feel it such. Getting AroundThis place is about 3.5km off Metuplayam-Kotagiri highway near Aravenu town. If you come by air – nearest airport is Coimbatore, 1.5hours drive. Volvo Buses from Bangalore are very comfortable and reliable. These buses can get you to Coonoor which is about 15km from Aravenu. Coming from Ooty, come via Kotagiri which is about 30 min from Ooty by car. From Aravenu, take road to Catherine Waterfalls. Road is narrow but in good shape. Drive easy and you should be at the entrance to this villa complex in about 10min. You will be guided to villa from there… another 2 min. A taxi pick-up and drop could be organized at cost. Other Things to NoteDo consider bringing anything which is important for you like medicine etc. Cell phones works ok but internet very poor.

          Sometimes , you just need a break,in a beautiful place . alone, to figure everything out in life . These are 2 beautiful Steel cabins with a big Hall apt for nature lovers & travelers who wish to take a break from the hustle bustle of city life . If you are looking out for a busy road, with lots of shopping , restaurants etc, then this is not the place you want to visit. Entire House is Rs2500 (40 USD)per night for couples and Rs500 per extra person and sleeps Max of 8 . At one time Ooty was know to be second best climate in the world but now air quality is poor in Ooty but still much better then other mega cities all around. So we choose Kotagiri a city which is just 25 kms away from Ooty. If you are thinking this trip will be your escape to perfect utopia , our stay & ambience would give you that . During Peak season its common sight many people vomiting same time due to motion sickness. Across the streets people eating down the road you will see them throwing up. I'll advise if you suffer from high altitude or motion sickness then travel empty stomach. Driving on a scenic winding hwy from Kotagiri to Ooty you can see purple haze on horizon, pollution from Bangalore and Mysore sits there. If any one says Ooty, Coonor and Kotagiri are beautiful little sleepy town then I would say either they are either in Denial mode or talking about past or this is the best they have seen. I don't believe in putting icing on the cake. Well, lets get to place where you are gona spend your vacation called " MYSPACE" just to get a feel that its gonna be Your Space . I reiterate if your are city person there is nothing here for you. You will be bored from surroundings and regret on your decision or who ever told you about this place. By the same token if you love grandeur of nature , bogged down with crowd, traffic and don't want to spend too much money then we will be in love at first sight. There are no shops and restaurants around but aren't you sick of them? Anyway These cabins are Large, with attached very clean baths, each cabin got king size beds,Also each bath got hot hand shower with gud pressure thanks to pressure pump, bucket bath are not bad . Color combination ,wooden flooring high end plumbing fittings. You can also enjoy the view from the front hall /Sun room just to kick back or do nothing all day and rest after that in the evening. For wild life lovers watch heard of Bison's, lots of birds etc. Only animals I have seen are Bisons, Wild boars, Deer, rabbits, one time heard of 16 Bison. Just to be on record last sighting of a leopard was on evening around 7pm of Nov 7th ,2014 by me for about 2 min with car light . As far this place goes you can go on mild to moderate hike to Gundada Road and entire circle takes you back to pandian park . or if you are courage's enough then park your car and take a walk down to end up seeing a beautiful stream running thru , You can also walk on a trail to village called Thanthanadu usually village people will welcome you for tea or coffee to there homes. You can do all the shopping in Kotagiri and stack up or order daily morning to a guy called loganathan who delivers in MySpace from newspaper , milk to chicken etc . Staying here is brilliant idea to save money simultaneously you get your pleasure of staying in beautiful setting with awesome beauty around, you go to bed in peace and wake up to the sound of birds. When you leave you will leave with a sense of Solitudeness . Staying here Eve Ensler saying applies " “Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.” . Can't buy beer or hard liquor around need to get it in Kotagiri only . Please bring Flash lights, pen drive with some movies and books you always wanted to read. Please do not littler, have respect for next visitors and environment. If you happen to visit Myspace during June/ July better chances of eating fresh Pear fruits which surrounds yoyr cabins ,all the shola trees ( Indigenous trees) . Morning and evenings are very pleasant. Do not wonder off during afternoon. Over here UV rays are very strong and you can get heat stroke. Wish you have a pleasant stay .. Regds Nisha

                  The SpaceThe farm stay that we have setup came into being as we wanted a home away from the madding crowd of cities and towns. Having lived in the Nilgiris for many years and having watched the towns and villages grow we scouted out this alternative area which has the advantage of being just 7 kms out of the township of Kotagiri and yet nestled amongst thick forests and rolling undisturbed countryside with amazing views of the deep valleys which form the heart and soul of the Nilgiris district. Our space is a labour of love and is the ideal destination for a family , and couple of families or groups of individuals who basically love the outdoor life, a spacious home but with a great degree of personal space when it comes to cooking and living styles. The farmhouse comprises of three bedrooms with attached bath and toilet, a spacious living area with a fireplace and large windows, a very well appointed kitchen and pantry with space to dine and a very large covered sit- out cum balcony which faces the stunningly beautiful valley in front. The only sounds that one hears during the day are those of birds. There are some sightings of wild life in the neighbourhood largely during the evening , night and early morning hours. Indian gaur, barking deer, the indian sloth bear and the occasional elephant have been sighted in and around the farm . But people and animals in the area have always enjoyed a friendly and easy living environment. We have a caretaker on the property who takes care of the conveniences and utilities like gas , power and electricity etc. The kitchen is equipped with basic appliances like toaster , microwave , refrigerator , gas and induction plate, cutlery and we can also ensure basic items in the pantry like breakfast cereals ,bread, jams and butter and some soft drinks and juices which would be chargeable on use basis. Otherwise guests are free to bring in their own provisions and the kitchen could be used at their convenience at no extra charge. Guest AccessOur farmhouse is located amongst a tea garden comprising a total of 5.5 acres. There is a fully yielding tea plantation surrounding the farmhouse that you are free to access and engage with. There are amazing walks to be had around the farm stay and estate. The views overlooking the property are fascinating and for bird enthusiasts there is rich and varied bird life endemic to the region all around. Interaction with GuestsWe as the host family do not live on the property but will always be close at hand to provide help and guidance as and when required (we live about an half hour drive away are usually don't miss out on a chance to visit the farmhouse). We would love to meet you and show you around the property on arrival and introduce you to the caretakers who are available for basic domestic assistance. The NeighborhoodThe road leading up to our farm house serves the tea gardens and terminates at the tribal Irula village close by. There is negligible traffic throughout the day and only leaf jeeps frequent the road during evening hours making the area traffic and people free throughout the day. The farmhouse is situated further into the estate so you can enjoy the feeling of total seclusion. Getting AroundThe farm stay is located just 8 kms from the township of Kotagiri, 27 kms from Coonoor and 35 kms from the district capital township of Ooty. We recommend that you have your own transportation for the duration of your stay if you wish to head into town to buy supplies or dine-out. The nearest supplies shop is just a couple minutes drive away and you'll find pretty much anything that you need in Kotagiri which is 8 kms away. Other Things to NoteThe FARMSTAY is typically setup for guest access to the kitchen and self cooking as the kitchen and dining are fully equipped with appliances, crockery and cutlery. However our caretakers are cooks too and if their services are required for the duration of your stay, they can be made available to cook for you at a small additional charge. Please discuss this with your host family at the time of enquiry/ booking.
