About the Home

  • SaffronStays Kurinji Estate is a quintessential pre-independence British Tam-Brahm estate bungalow with an old-world charm perfect for a laidback holiday in Kodaikanal.
  • Time stands still in this 6-bedroom Thanjavur-style stone home.
  • Head out for a trail through the winding 9-acre estate and be sure to be greeted with freshly prepared, warm Tamilian meals by one of our best caretakers, Natrajan and his wife, upon your return.
  • You can sit on the machan (built by Natrajan) admiring the Kodai valley or enjoy a special picnic set-up next to the recently-revived pond.
  • On a cold windy night, under a carpet of stars, don’t forget to create unforgettable memories around the warm bonfire.
