The SpaceThe Grumpartment has 3 Air Conditioned bedrooms with attached western style toilets. Hot water is available 24/7 powered by a big 500litre solar water heater. Each bedroom has two beds. Each bed in the first two bedrooms are 4 feet wide and 6.5 feet long. The third bed room has two single beds. Each bedroom has a wardrobe, a traditional wooden clothes hanger and plenty of coat hangers. The first two bedrooms have a laptop friendly workspace (i.e. a working table and chair with multiple electric plug points). There is also a common laptop workspace in the dining room.
The entire house is netted to prevent mosquitoes and other insects from getting in.
We had a power crisis in Tamil Nadu for a couple of years; in some seasons we used to have 14 hours of power cuts every day. But now the power situation in Tamil Nadu is much better. Nowadays we have occasional power cuts in Trichy. The Grumpartment has a powerful generator to support the entire building including the air conditioners, television, microwave, etc. So you don't need to worry about power cuts.
The Living room has a comfortable couch and a HD LED TV with a TATA SKY ultimate (all channels) dish TV connection. The couch can seat 5 guests. We provide about 12 extra chairs for extra guests.
The dining hall has a table that can seat 6 people. If you have extra guests you can always use the additions chairs or stools present in the house. We also provide cutlery, plates, bowls, etc.
The kitchen has a good stove and a gas cylinder, a refrigerator, a mixy, electric water kettle, toaster, microwave, big wet grinder, etc. A whole lot of cookware and other utensils are also provided. The kitchen also has a small service room with a traditional stone ammikal (a stone crushing or grinding thingy that can be used to make chutneys and masalas.) House cleaning equipment is kept in the service room.
We have two balconies; the front balcony adjacent to the Living room and the back balcony adjoining the dining room & kitchen. The back balcony has an Indian style toilet and bathroom. The washing machine and laundry box is kept in the back balcony. The back balcony can be used to dry clothes: clothes drying lines and plenty of clips are provided.
The Grumpartment has two covered car parks inside the premises. Additional vehicles can be parked inside the premises but won’t have covered parking.
CCTV cameras are present outside the building for security purposes.
The house is on the first floor. So you have to climb around 20 steps to get to it. Unfortunately we don't have a lift and the house is not wheelchair accessible. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the entire house and ample car parking space in the premises. Interaction with GuestsPlease feel free to contact us any time, My dad and myself are always happy to assist. Even if we are unavailable at a certain time or day, my manager Harri will be there to assist you. The NeighborhoodAnnamalai Nagar is a relatively new & popular neighbourhood. It’s very close/adjacent to Thillai Nagar. It does not get very busy and is quite peaceful. All the streets in Annamalai Nagar are named after some flower. The area is more of a residential neighbourhood, although we do have some hospitals, restaurants and other business in the area. Getting AroundThe best way to get around Trichy is by Ola Taxi. Download the Ola App on your smart phone and book a taxi at your location.
There are no auto-rickshaw stands nearby but if you are out, you can also use auto-rickshaws to move around. However you will have to bargain for a good price with the rickshaw driver or you may end up paying too much for your ride. That is one the reasons I recommend Ola Taxi; you don't need to bargain, the price is fixed on the distance travelled and the time taken for travel.
You can also use public transport. Chatharam Bus Stand is about 10mins by walk (800 meters). You can get buses to anywhere in Trichy and neighbouring areas from Chatharam Bus Stand. It is one the two main bus stands in Trichy. Other Things to NoteWe provide housekeeping once or twice a day depending on your requirement. The housekeeping staff does not work on Sunday, so if you compulsorily need housekeeping on Sunday, please let us know, we can make some sort of alternate arrangement.
