We had a lovely stay with Mark and Stephanie. They are very welcoming, cooked us an amazing dinner, have a beautiful garden where you can relax and enjoy the day. It was awesome to stay there with our 19 months old son, because they have a kid too and these 2 got along really well, so cute to see them play together!
Thanks barbara, see you again soon
Mark and Stephanie are gracious hosts along with their dogs sultan and silver, who were the calmest ones that I have seen. Good property with a great sit out and tons of fruits. Enjoyed their breakfast spread.
Helpful and friendly hosts, Mark and Stephanie have managed to create a pleasant atmosphere round the table in the garden for the excellent and copious breakfast . The fresh tasty coffee was particularly appreciated. Perfectly adequate bedrooms with constant hot water. Not really central, but within the"yoga district" with lots of organic restaurants and shops.
We really enjoyed our stay at the peacful house. Unfortunately we didn´t get to know Mark an his wife but Nasim, a yoga student of Mark, was a very nice and helpful host as well. The breakfast was delicious.
Glad you enjoyed, maybe we meet in person next time.
Thank you again Mark. hope to visit again for yoga :D

Thank you.
We had a very pleasant stay at Shanti Nilayam.
No big signs will ever be on Shanti Nilayam, we are opposite Nalpak and More supermarket their signs are plenty big enough....
We had some wonderful days with Mark,Stefanie and Oliver.
They are really funny, helpful and strait forward.
We got some yoga lessons from Mark and is was though but really effective.
Mark was very helpful in organizing our trips and we flavored some tasteful chinese food from Stefanie.
The breakfast was healthy and tasty.
Sultan and the other German Shepard are very friendly.
Places like Shanti Nilayam and people like Mark and Stephanie are what make Airbnb such an enriching travel experience. Instead of being shacked up in a Dasaprakash or a Pai Vista, we ended up staying in this charming old British Raj Era building with a beautiful garden and dining area in the backyard and enjoyed the hospitality of this warm and interesting couple, their incredibly social one year old, Oliver and their friendly and playful Alsatians, Sultan and Silva. Stephanie was a wonderful hostess. She cooked us some tasty and wholesome dinner and shared some delicious treats with us. We sure won't forget that organic chocolate coated dried Jackfruit in a hurry. We had a great stay at Shanti Nilayam. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay for longer.
A truly great place to stay. Mark and Stephanie are wonderful hosts, they made me feel very welcome. My arrival at 6am was no problem. I came to Mysore in search of traditional wrestlers exercises using wooden clubs. Mark went out of his way to help me find them.
Both Mark and Stephanie have a wealth of local knowledge, which is a great help.
I had a room in the back of the property which was very quiet and restful, the mornings started with everyone including the hosts having an outdoor breakfast together, just like extended family.
Welcome back anytime and I can get some more lessons in swinging Indian Clubs from a self taught master,,,
Mark and Stephanie are very easy and fun to host! They understand how to live cooperatively and keep everything smooth. They took full advantage of our place and kept everything clean.
Also, Mark gave me some private yoga Lessons ~~ Something I needed very badly!
