The bungalow is surrounded by coffee plantations, it’s a beautiful sight. Arjun’s mom & the rest of the team cooked us delicious local kodava food everyday. The breakfast & dinner provided was homestyle & light. We couldn’t have been happier with the food. Thank you.

    We decided to visit this place after seeing all the good reviews about food and hospitality in Google and Airbnb. The bungalow is tucked into a quite space near Nagarhole and the ambience is mind blowing! The property is maintained very well and there is no way one can even find a fault in any aspect. The host was very humble and helped us immediately as soon as we requested for something. Coming to food,it was superb and very authentic and hygienic. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and intend to come back soon.

Here is a summary of what my parents said about the place: The owners were very hospitable, helpful and kind. Good people! They also like their two dogs. The property was beautiful. The food was amazing! No complaints. Im also sure that the place was very clean because I would have heard otherwise from my parents :) Highly recommended.

    Calamondinn Bungalow It was an absolutely fabulous stay at the Calamondinn Bungalow. An architecturally stunning home with interesting history, where each corner had a different story to tell . The bungalow is beautifully preserved by the Masti family . The stay was very comfortable and the hosts were friendly and accommodating with all our requests. And the food was by far the best part ..simply amazing fusion of local flavours. It truly felt homely . If there’s one reason you should come here- it’s the overall experience of being nestled away in the midst of a coffee estate, savouring the feel of all things local - be it the piping hot coffee , the flavourful food , the experience of waking up to the sound of chirping birds, the cool weather and just the comfort of just sitting around and soaking up the essence of Coorg in every corner of the Bungalow.

    Our over all experience was lovely. The property reminded us of the old British era situated amongst the wilderness of Coorg. The host, Arjun and his mom were extremely kind to treat us well with hospitality, catering to our needs and requests. However, we were dissatisfied with one room in particular allotted to us completely outside the house and did not reach up to our expectations. Nonetheless, it was a lovely stay and definitely worth the visit.

    A cosy, warm and beautiful bungalow, surrounded by a coffee plantation and beautifully manicured garden was such a treat to spend relaxing days in. The highlight of our stay was the incredible Coorgi food that we were fed by Arjun and Devika Aunty. The love and warmth in preparing the food was evident from the taste to the presentation. Arjun took time out to show us around their estate which has a beautiful man made lake in it! Loved our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to unwind for a few days.

Arjun ensures the stay is all comfortable and helps in planning your itinerary.. trust me its worth taking tips from him.. his mom is also very affectionate and caring. Her deserts were to die for (caramel custard was my fav.). I used to always sneak extra from refrigerator. All in all memorable stay and trip. Do note that property is South of Coorg so you need to travel some distance to reach hilly/ tourist points but with that lovely green drive amongst plantations, one can afford that.

    The bungalow is great- very well maintained and has an old world Victorian charm to it. The plantation is lovely and green and walks around it are quite pleasant. The food is really fantastic both in terms of taste and quality. However a few things to mention 1. It’s a small property - the property doesn’t really have a view and very little space around it- don’t expect to roam around inside the property or enjoy a view from the rooms 2. The water body is not inside the property- somehow we got the impression that it’s part of the property but actually it more than half a km walk from the property gate 3. The hosts live inside the property and while quite professional and prompt, you can’t really call them warm or spontaneous. A bit of language issues with other staff members. Overall , a pleasant stay.

    Hi Saikat, Thank you for your wonderful review. We strive to maintain the quality of food and cleanliness as always. Ever since Covid-19, our staff and us have been training to maintain distance and take precautions. We can't really do the things we love such as socialise or entertain with guests like we used to anymore. South Coorg isn't really known for the steep elevations that the western part of the Western Ghats are known for - all you'll see around are tall trees, no valleys, yes! Thanks for mentioning about the pictures making it seem that the lake is within the same compound as our bungalow (it's on another estate of ours down the road) will ask for the changes to be made by Saffronstays. We loved having you over! Take care. :)

I always prefer to eat outside when staying somewhere, but the breakfast and dinner were absolutely wonderful. Made us sad that they dont serve lunch as well! When you're here, do not order in dinner or breakfast. Their cooks are magnificent Safety : the first place we had felt there was no need to lock our doors when stepping out. Cleanliness : not a speck of dirt anywhere. Simply the perfect resort

The rooms were well maintained, clean, and super spacious, and the interiors tastefully done to give a vintage feel. The hosts, Mr. Arjun and his family, and the staff ensured that we felt comfortable. The food, especially the hot akki rotis (rice flatbreads) were delicious. The walk around the coffee estate, honey making on site were informative and interesting to see. Brandy, Burtie and Alexa made our stay even more enjoyable. 🐾 Overall, it's a quaint bungalow to, close to nature that's makes for a great stay. :)

    Calamondinn Bungalow is a beautiful, quaint property nestled away in the woods. Me and my wife stayed there for 5 nights and had a delightful experience. A few notable things: 1) The property is a 125 year old colonial bungalow. It has a rustic charm that grows on you. The rooms are huge and you can also sit around the living area. 2) Arjun and his mom are gracious hosts and they did everything to ensure our stay was comfortable. 3) The food was delicious. We had many authentic Coorgi style dishes which were phenomenal, but even the English desserts were amazing. 4) Arjun gave us a lot of tips on which places to cover on our day off and helped us plan the itinerary, as well as contact a reliable and knowledgeable driver who showed us around. 5) We were on a Workation i.e. we were working remotely but also got to enjoy on weekends. 6) Wifi connectivity is good, but due to remote area bandwidth may be a problem. Vodafone has zero connectivity but Jio works fine. 7) Powercuts are frequent, but there are UPS-powered charing points in Living area. Keep your phones / laptops charged whenever there's power. Overall, it was a beautiful holiday for the two of us. P.S. The filter coffee in the morning and evening comes from their own plantations. If you are a coffee lover, you will absolutely love it.

    Absolutely brilliant place! Have nothing to complain about, and everything to rave about. The property is absolutely gorgeous, and maintained extremely well. The food was authentic and brilliant! The staff was very well trained and courteous. This was a perfect getaway from the hectic lives we have, and going back after 1 week of recharging here! Definitely coming back again! :)

    We had the most amazing time, a beautiful heritage property with the most agreeable hosts Arjun and his mom, Devika. Everything was excellent, fantastic food and endless lovely filter coffee’s. The property is located amidst the lush coffee plantations and it was wonderful waking up to the sounds of several birds, serene and peaceful. Perfect place to switch off and relax especially if you haven’t had a break from your bustling city life. We shall surely return soon. Thank you Meena & Narendra

    Had an absolutely wonderful time at this homestay! Arjun and his mom go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need at all times. The food was way better than we expected. The property was beautiful and well maintained. It exceeded our overall expectations.

    We had a lovely time at Calamondinn. The best part of the stay was the food and free flowing conversations. The host go above and beyond in taking care of you. And the bungalow is immaculate and very thoughtfully decorated. You can spend some time admiring every piece of furniture there is. Arjun is a perfect host, with some lovely dogs and can answer all your questions. Kudos to him in managing everything so well. Come for the location and stay for the hospitality.

    Saffronstays is a nice cozy bungalow tucked away amidst the greeneries of pepper & coffee in Gonikkopal, coorg. We were 8 of us and we were allotted ooms accordingly. However what was most disappointing was the way pets are treated here, though this property says they are pet friendly. We were allotted a room which is outside the main bungalow as we have a pet dog with us and the dog is not supposed to enter the main bungalow etc etc(meaning a lot of restrictions were imposed on the pet), though they claim to be pet friendly. This is something which the homestay authorities need to relook. You cannot claim to be pet friendly on one hand and lay rules like this which is completely annoying to the pet owners. This kind of jekyl and hyde behavior cannot work. It has to be an all or none affair with pets. We have been to luxury properties like Taj and the pets have been treated wonderfully there. Morover you also charge 2000/- as sanitising charges of the property and the lady in the bungalow (Mrs Devika) was not at all amused when we asked for pet food like curds/boiled veggies/Eggs etc. Let me tell you, the quality and taste of food served was amazing, though communication from Mrs. Devika leaves a lot to be desired. We had to literally tell her multiple times that we need eggs for breakfast. These kind of things do make a difference in us returning to the property for another holiday. I think the caption of " Where families bond" didnt work with us as we felt that communication from her was bad.

    The place is impeccably clean and the food is really good. The caretakers commintment towards their hospitatily is very evident. We hope in the future lunch is also available at the bungalow itself. Although I have nothing to complain about, however, I do believe the experience can be improved. The bungalow needs perhaps a book/booklet which the visitors can go through to get know the bungalow and the property around. The estate tour was certainly missing and even here I believe a booklet serving to self-tour, visitors can tour around the estate by themselves with the help of the booklet at some specified timings. I would also add an booklet towards the everyday things that goes into maintenance of such a beautiful property. Of course, these can be more personal if the caretakers can spend time with the guests, however I do not see this to be practical so I have suggested a booklet

    Was a relaxing and lovely stay at Clamondinn Bungalow. Arjun and his mum are the quintessential graceful hosts and their staff were super helpful and polite. The bungalow's old world charm grows on you, add to it the delicious home cooked meals, walks in the green clean surroundings...and you have the perfect weekend getaway. Thankyou for everything!

    A one of a kind experience with a serene environment around you and authentic mouth watering kodava cuisine to savour it with. From the Coffee plantations beside you to the feeling of going back in time with the colonial architecture of the Bungalow, the place has so much to offer.

The property is quaint and beautiful, and the hosts are always available should you need them. Food was great. Would definitely recommend this place as a weekend getaway
