Depot Estate homestay is a short car ride or about 12-18 min walk from Madikeri, but the winding road down into the estate ensures you have all the peace and quiet you want. The villa has a lovely old world feel with beautiful flowers all around; the walk around the estate gives you a feeling that you are in the midst of a forest. The food is simple but wholesome prepared by a smiling caretaker (Ishwari). We asked Ishwari to tailor the dishes to our taste and enjoyed the cold Americano! You are woken up in the morning by the persistent knocking by a colorful Hornbill, and the pet Labrador is pretty friendly. The rooms are comfortable, the bathrooms basic but clean. The dining rooms feel like a friends place (this is after all a home not a hotel) This homestay unlike the others that we considered is a lot more accomodating. Don't miss having tea/ coffee in the upstairs patio, and do be careful of the ubiquitous leeches in and around the estate. Overall, a good value for money experience and we would love to be back in lovely Coorg!

The beauty of the estate homestay is the experience. To be amidst the coffee, the tall tree canopy, to hear the call of wild animals and birds, to have a decent trail where we were lucky to spot elephant dung, coffee fruiting berries, vanilla fronds and jack fruit! To understand Kodava culture and history, one can see the family photos, read books on Coorg in the library, and to have a room with a view with the balcony opening from it. We stayed for three nights and four days, in March, where the weather was very hot, unusually, with one morning a surprising mist descending on the estate making it magical...Every evening we would take a walk on the Estate grounds, detouring near the Sacred Grove where ancestors reside, and wind up watching bats return to their broods as night descends into the valley. The Estate is blessed with a pond in which ducks and geese play around...there are stools/stone ledges on which one can sit down and view their play at leisure. Homestay is essentially about the hostess. The owners are not residing, they came on the first day to look us up. Shri Rajan Appanna and his better half were gracious and genuine in their desire to make up for the fact that we were 'vegetarians' and perhaps they even staggered the booking for the other rooms that they gave us a run of their entire property for the duration of our stay. ( while they listened to pompous theories of Coorgi origins and descent along with trivia about British colonial history) Ishwari Amma is the hostess who is so down to earth and whose embrace of guests so complete that what ever short comings are there in the accommodation and stay, she is able to overcome with her resourcefulness and her smile that has endured many seasons! We had her Akki Rotis, along with traditional Coorgi vegetarian fare, alternating with roti sabji and dhal. For breakfast we had typical south Indian idlis, dosas, upma and stuff. The coffee in the morning is divine especially since one can take in the very Estate and savour the vista as well as the aroma in the morning light! Will recommend this place for an authentic Coorg Coffee Estate experience, as it is just on the outskirts of Madikeri town, walking distance in fact. An unusually warm March made us recommend ceiling fans for the rooms and the dining room to make for a comfortable stay here. Would love to visit again after monsoons when it is supposed to be the best time to visit Coorg between September to November!

It was a hunt through the Net while we identified the home stay, wanted to be closure to the town and had no great expectations. When we connected with Mr. and Mrs. Appanna we instantly knew we are dealing with absolutely genuine owners. Their efforts to explain the home stay falsities to novice like us, personalised hosting , extreme value for money and on top wonderful overall experience has made us fall in love with the property. We have not only recommended to all our friends but have decided to repeat the experience again. Keep up the good work Rajan...

Stayed here for three nights along with my family. Location: Just out skirts of Madikeri town, but not far also, just about 3 minutes driver to town centre, its very easy to locate it just on state highway, if you navigate using google maps, you can reach here very easily. Homestay: Its an huge Bungalow about 50 years old, in midst of coffee estate, surrounded by dense coffee plantation and trees, its a home with all items used by owner is still kept there, owners don't stay here, care taker is one person "Ishwari" she is all in one person who manage the show, so there is limitation in terms of services. Rooms: Very clean rooms & bathrooms, clean bed linens, spacious rooms , one room in the 1st floor has king size bed, 2nd one has queen size bed. Food: Breakfast is part of tariff, lunch, snack & dinner would be prepared on order, we tried veg breakfast, it was really good. Service: As its managed by only one person, don't expect hotel type of service, but care taker "Ishwari" she is very friendly and very good chef, happy to assist in what where possible. What's Unique here: 60 acre coffee plantation, a small natural pond with ducks and geese in it, wakeup to the sound of chirping birds, friendly pet dogs, nature walk around the estate, yet very near to the town. At night switch off all lights and watch the fire flies flying around, awesome view, couldn't capture these on camera :) Tried to star gaze, as weather was cloudy, couldn't get to see any stars, else its a good place to star gaze. Even though its slightly over prized, you wont regret staying here. Checked out some photo sphere of this location on Google maps to get a better views of this estate.

We visited this place a couple of years ago. It is just before entering Madikeri. The house is beautiful but not really old. The owner has all his personal belongings still in the house. But the owners didnot stay there. They have enough servants to take care of guest. I assume there people caretakers and worker at the estate. The food is made to order and very limited choice. The taste is really not that great. The cook didnot know how to cook coorgi food. Hence, you cannot trying any of the specialities. Overall, if you need to stay in an estate bungalow along with your friends, this is a decent place. I did not feel it was any special as there are a lot of similar resorts/home stays in Coorg or Yercaud or Ooty or Masinagudi. So, there is nothing special about this place.
