“Truly serene among the tea estate.”
Reviewed 29 August 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is my very first experience with a Homestay and I simply loved it.

The serenity homestay is located 12 kms from Coonoor and near the Ralliah Dam. Ralliah Dam is around 20 mins walk. The place is awesome and is very well maintained by the caretakers Arif and his wife Waheeda. It's like going to your own home where there are people looking after you and you do not have to do anything.

The house is a 3BHK with a functioning kitchen. There is a sitting room with fireplace and a small library and TV. They have also kept some board games, in case you missed to take it. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable with all basic amenities. The bathroom is big enough and clean. You should definitely try the food cooked by Arif and Waheeda. It's simply mind-blowing and easily affordable. Moreover, you will not find any good eatery nearby, so this is highly suggested. We had all 3 meals of the day. A very good place to stay and must visit again. :)

“A serene place with spectacular view!!”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This is homestay is near Ralliah Dam and easily accessible through in Google map. The owner, manager and caretakers are very much cooperative. They kept in touch since 3 days earlier of our visit. We also received a warm welcome while entering the homestay. It is on the lap of tea gardens covered by hills. One can enjoy magnificent views while relaxing in the drawing room. All the rooms are spacious. Master bedroom can easily accommodate 6 persons while other 2 bedrooms can accommodate 2 persons each. Ralliah Dam could be the nearest sight seeing place. The homestay is secluded from city's hubbub and highly recommended for peace seekers.

“Truly serene”
Reviewed 3 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

One of the most serene places I have stayed in. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Ideal for group of friends or family to have a great time torgether. One little thing. It would be great if there is power back up for water heating especially in the morning. Otherwise it was all great. Looking forward to visiting again

Management Response
17 May 2017
Thank you for your review. We would be happy to welcome you back to Serenity anytime.

I am sorry there was an issue with the hot water. There is usually always hot water as we have individual geysers in the bathrooms. Unfortunately there had been a heavy storm while you were there and one phase had gone; the phase with the geysers on. Hence waheeda and Arif had to heat the water on the gas stove for you.
We hope when you return there will be no electricity issues (something we cannot do much about!!)

“High on a hilltop, tranquil & lovely homestay.”
Reviewed 15 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This homestay is 'far from the madding crowd', very well situated for a de stress holiday. We stayed for 4 days, enjoyed the warm hospitality of Waheeda & Arif, a lovely couple who tirelessly cooked & cleaned for us.
The bonus was when we observed our kids more interested in playing outdoors enjoying the healthy climate, rather than getting an electronic high with gadgets & gizmos!
Thumbs up for the serenity homestay. Highly recommend it :-)
