In 2011, me and my partner will be traveling through France and Italy and then flying to India to work in an orphanage!
Chris and Warren were very accommodating and warm hosts. They went above and beyond to make sure I knew where to get groceries, where to eat, where to do yoga, massage, and take other classes, etc. It was so helpful to stay with western people that have been living in India for many years.
The room was wonderful and is in the shade, so it stayed cool in the heat. The bathroom is clean, and the kitchen allows for your to store food and make your own meals. It is a great place to unwind and keep as a home base when you are traveling far away from home.
I could not have asked for more.
The room was lovely (with en suite bathroom) and the apartment, spacious airy and fully equipped. A great set up to enjoy both privacy and company.
But the highlight was the hosts. Chris and Warren made me feel so much at home that I did not want to leave! Nothing was too much trouble and their easy manner and their engaging company made a real difference to my stay.
I came to do the yoga thing but discovered so much more, largely thanks to my hosts.
Thank you both! x
I came to Mysore to practice at the Jois Shala. I was pleasantly surprised to find Chris' listing on Airbnb. Chris responded promptly to all of my inquiries, and I quickly decided that this is where I wanted to stay.
The location of Chris' flat is perfect - less than 10 mins walk from the Shala, and about 5 mins from Dhatu organic shop/restaurant, and the south Indian eateries on Khalidasa Road.
The flat is equipped with most things you might need for cooking. The room is a good size, with an attached bathroom - I never felt cramped, and I always had privacy if that's what I wanted. The WiFi works well as does the satellite TV, and the flat has a pleasant balcony for reading, conversing or just... contemplating :)
Chris and Warren are consummate hosts! They keep the place clean and tidy, without it feeling institutional. They are incredibly helpful, always offering advice regarding the neighborhood, the Shala, and local places to eat. They can even recommend places for dental work or quality medical attention if that should come up. Their generous spirit made me feel welcome. I really enjoyed my stay!
Chris and Warren are fantastic hosts, and the room for rent is perfect for someone who is new to Mysore and looking for a place to stay before committing to a longterm lease. They are very knowledgeable about the area and quick to help you out--whether you need directions, advice about navigating the city, or just a cup of hot tea. Warm, welcoming hosts, lovely (very clean!) room, and great conversation. Thank you!
It was a pleasure to have Chris staying with us. We are looking forward to his next visit.
Gente extra-ordinario. Difícil de encontrar. Espero que sean mis clientes mas a menudo...
