A beautiful and well-kept family-friendly abode is what the Damodaran family has to offer at this place. At 5 kms away from the city center, this abode is definitely a must stay place if you ever have to visit Mysore.
The breakfast offered in the package was simple and delicious. We even asked Mrs. Damodaran to prepare dinner and lunch for us during our stay. Simple, homely, and delicious are the words for the fare Mrs. Damodaran offered.
In a gist, it is a home away from home. Thanks!
We had such a lovely time here-if you manage to secure a booking to stay you will be lucky indeed.This self-contained apartment with its own roof terrace is an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nivyavand her family are extremely welcoming and helpful.It is worth asking them to cook you dinner so you can experience delicious Indian home cooking.
We really enjoyed our stay, three nights at the rooftop retreat. Easy to get to from the centre (a short pre-paid rickshaw from the station), and incredibly welcoming and well kitted out. We enjoyed our breakfasts and twice opted to eat the super homemade food from Nivya. The flat is as advertised, private and clean. We enjoyed the city and this place was the cherry on top.
Tucked away from the busy street, this homestay was delightful. Nivya and her family were welcoming and even shared their food with us when we arrived starving hungry. It is, of course, better to send a message ahead that you would like some food! The rooftop apartment was totally private as it occupied the whole floor above Nivya and her family. It was clean and spacious with excellent air con. We were so comfortable that we wished we had stayed longer. You need a few days to explore Mysore.
In the helpful guest book many guests have recommended Julian the tuk tuk driver. Do not hesitate to give him a call. His spoken English was excellent and he made our brief visit very easy plus he was totally reliable. A nice family man. In a busy city where tuk tuk drivers hassle you fighting for your custom he was our angel.
Thank you once again Nivya for one of our best, most personal, homestay experiences in India.
I would love to return one day.
Great property, loads of space both inside and out. Extremely clean, yummy breakfasts and such a lovely family, very nice meeting them. They even did some washing for us. There is everything there that you would need. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and totally recommend it. It's a bit outside the city centre, but that makes it quieter in the evening and it's really easy to get into town on a tuk tuk.
