Indira was a wonderful hostess. Put on a wonderful dinner, was kind and lovely. Her house is heaven
Thank you Indira for making my stay so lovely. It was perfect, the peace, tranquillity and friendliness of everyone made it a place I would want to come back too. I just wish I could have stayed longer. The breakfast Dosa's were a delight as was the spa treatment.
This was my third stay at the First Steps Guest house -( twice this month ) -it is my home away from home --I feel like part of the family --Indira has become a dear friend ---Anjun makes sure I am ok and not locked out (
This was my second stay at this magical place --it feels like home -everyone watches out for me --from the charming setting /comfy room (did I mention how comfy the bed is/to home cooking indian breakfast in the morning /to being able to say hello to the children at the First Steps nursery school that is right there /I even got the chance to spend some time with the kids ---I feel safe here -my Bangalore home ---Indira is a special person who light shines so brightly --can't wait until I return back again before I head home to the states
Indira was the most charming and delightful hostess and went to a great deal of effort to make sure our stay was delightful. Anjum was also most charming and helpful.
Indira's place is filled with activities and still is a calm space in the heart of the city. Many surprises. The restaurant which is quite literally a 'secret garden', the spa, the pool and the hammock!! Great place to stay. Indira is a wonderful host; makes you feel at home; amazes you with her ability to maintain this beautiful house and is ready to help in all ways she can.

About the Host, Indira
the owner – Indira Basapa, Entrepreneur
Her two sons are currently abroad in pursuit of higher education and this empty nest syndrome, gave roots to supporting a project that has always been very dear to her heart. Indira and her team through her Trust – “Lt. Col. Chik Basapa Memorial Trust”, have always supported the rental of ‘Navchetana’ a home for the mentally challenged and destitute women. However, now her vision and goal in life is to build a permanent home for these inmates. All proceeds from the guest house will go towards this noble cause.
While the clientele enjoy the ambience and comfort of a home which belongs to a segment of property that spans a period of 127 years, they also get an insight into the rich culture and heritage that represents old Bangalore.
