Fantastic Hosts. They were not only welcoming but made you feel as you were some long lost guests. location was also ideal if you want to be in central Bangalore.
My hosts made me feel incredibly welcome, even cooking a delicious mixed north indian and kerala breakfast for me, giving me tips about the trip. The place is just as described and really very ample and beautifully designed, and the hosts are very easy going and tranquil people who are also very knowledgeable and kind. I would definitely recommend the place to anyone. The neighbourhood is incredibly beautiful and calm.
