About the Home

  • How about you ditch your daily morning ritual of sitting in your living room, sipping coffee and head to a coffee estate near Kodaikanal instead? If this sounds like an idea, SaffronStays Nandanvan Estate is where you should be.
  • Engulfed in a 35-acre organic coffee plantation, take an assisted tour of the estate where coffee is not just grown using rainwater harvesting but also roasted. 
  • Run by third generation of coffee growers, the coffee estate was established with a single goal: To enjoy an exceptional cup of coffee with friends while protecting the environment.
  • Choose from over 200 books stacked in the library here. Experience the much-needed quietude with people who you vibe with. Enjoy a leisurely trek in the estate and plan a picnic by the stream. De-stress by playing with the 2 adorable pet dogs in the lawn.  
  • Birdwatchers, keep your binoculars handy and be ready to spot around 30-40 species of birds. You may even spot a herd of elephants, bison or mouse deer as you trek through the woods.
  • Meant for the thinking souls who love to sit back and enjoy reading a novel while enjoying their cuppa, this 3-bedroom vacation home is draped with climbers and surrounded by flowering plants. Right choice when all you want to do is nothing...
  • Relax in the gazebo with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and admire the striking views of the lush green mountains with fog as the icing on the cake. Our friends had a tough time trying to move us from here. 
  • Enjoy healthy home-cooked meals prepared using locally sourced fresh ingredients. Try out South-Indian style dishes as well as Mixed Veg Gravy, Veg Biryani, Chicken Biryani and Chicken Fry with your group in the dining area.
