Vasu an Bala really made us feel like home. We enjoyed the delicious home-made food, comfortable room back in the garden and the good company. A great place to relax, come to rest and discover Kodaikanal.
One of our most amazing travel experiences!

Everything from the property, the room, the facilities and especially the hospitality by the hosts was absolutely the best! Very well-maintained and very comfortable room, great food and lovely hosts that help you with all that you want, and more. They even packed up a breakfast tiffin for us as we were leaving early in the morning. We learnt cheese making from Bala and Vasu, the hosts, and it was really one of the best experiences of our lives.
Cinnabar, baar baar...

This was our tenth trip to Kodaikanal but the first to Cinnabar. We had seen some good reviews on Tripadvisor but as they say, seeing is believing. On the way up the hills from Coimbatore, we had a minor accident in the car we had booked thru a travel portal which resulted in us being stranded about 50 km from Kodai. A call to our host Bala and he very quickly arranged for us to travel in another car without much delay. Throughout the remainder of the journey, Bala was constantly in touch monitoring our progress up the hills. A very warm welcome followed on arrival and we were shown to a very comfortable and pleasing cottage just a few steps away from the main house. I could go on and on about the well maintained garden, the crisp and clean linen etc. etc. But this is to be generally expected. This was a homestay which to my mind is all about the hosts. Vasu and Bala are very warm and enthusiastic hosts who put in a great deal of effort and passion in everything they do to keep the guests well looked after. We were personally served every meal by them. A special mention has to be made of the very tasty homemade granola and the mouth watering desserts that followed every dinner. They grow most of the vegetables in their organic garden. Excellent conversations followed every meal in a cosy room by the fireplace. This was undoubtedly our best stay in Kodaikanal so far and we hope to revisit Cinnabar in the future. Vasu and Bala, thanks for everything and we are going to miss you guys and your lovable dog Luna terribly.

Cinnabar is a slice of heaven in the hills of Southern India. We cannot recommend staying here highly enough. Bala and Vasu are the kindest hosts and made us feel immediately at home in their beautiful house, and were charming fireside companions in the evenings. Throughout our stay they provided us with excellent recommendations for activities and have a raft of local knowledge that helped make our time in Kodaikanal very special. The home cooked meals are delicious and most of the food comes from their bountiful vegetable garden. The rooms are comfortable, clean and have everything you could want and more.
A homestay that feels just like home
by Rajesh M on
Cinnabar homestay is the perfect model of what a homestay should be. Clean, well-maintained, comfortable rooms set a few feet away from the hosts' own dwelling; veritable feasts for dinner each night made with love and attention to detail; dessert served in the hosts' living room; genuine and engaging conversation with the hosts; a treasure of information about the town: all of this made us feel like we were staying with family. Bala and Vasu, the hosts, will regale you with stories of plum farming, cheese making, and sustainable living. If that's not enough, they'll guide you to where you can find the best avocados in the bazaar area and where you can hike to for the best view of the Nilgiris. PS - Don't leave without their homemade granola recipe!
Both rooms are fine.
