“Home away from home”

Excellent property with excellent hosts. We were four of us so had booked both rooms of the home stay. We therefore had complete privacy.

The hosts were a very amiable couple and played a very important role in making us feel at home and taking care of each and every request we put forward to them. I would love to visit Madikeri and Coorg area again and would like to stay at Udaya and meet the charming hosts.

“What a stay! Thanks to Udaya and the wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in April 2013

The place is an absolute serene. The Bunglow is very well maintained. There is a full time caretaker who makes sure your stay is comfortable and cooks yummy local food.
This place is 10/10.

As captioned ,it was an amazing first time homestay experience . The hosts are very rich in hospitality and have made the best possible attempt in providing a luxurious homely experience to guests. Highly recommended for two families vacationing together at Coorg.
The highlights of the place are :
1. The property is as lovely as you see in the pics on the homepage -lovelier with the greens and mist of coorg when u actually visit the place.
2. Very well maintained with a caretaker provided .
3. The personal touch of the hosts- Prem and Preeth , right from booking stage to serving breakfast to tips on sightseeing ,transport (the transport guy recommended by them from mangalore to Coorg to kundapur was excellent too ), shopping around for coffee and spices ,is highly appreciated -never come across something like this before, on our other vacations.
4. The property is in the heart of the city making it very convenient for eating out ,getting takeaways and shopping in the main marketplace .
5. The hammock ,swing , taps providing hot water through the day , a kitchenette with filtered water provision and a litre of milk daily beside other utilities ,are essentials provided , which add a Comfort touch to the stay - very well thought out by the hosts.
6. Very clean,spacious bathrooms .
The vacation has been very memorable for us ,from kids to senior citizens alike , and would look forward to staying here in case we were to think of Coorg again !! Thank you Prem and Preeth for making our vacation lovely in every way. Have already recommended it to friends !!

“Amazing place to stay - would love to go back”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I would like to thank the owner Preeth & Prem for providing us a great place to stay in Madikeri. The owner Preeth was waiting to receive us and had a list of attractions in madikeri with the distance from the udaya homestay. I had booked for 2 days which I felt was very less when I reached the homestay. I have listed the Pros & Cons below:

Pros:
Ideal location
Well maintained and clean bedroom, bathroom and kitchen
Lot of space for kids
Affordable

Cons:
1. Complimentary breakfast was not good, there was rawa idli with no chutney and the bread was not fresh.
2. The wi-fi was available but was slow could be used for only whatsapp

But overall it was an excellent place to stay and I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Madikeri.

“Excellent Hospitality and unforgettable stay”
Reviewed 11 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My name is Srinivas Potharaju and I am from Hyderabad and I visited Udaya for 3 days along with my family of 6 adults and 1 kid. I had to tell you that I got excellent treatment from owner of this Homestay and I can always cherish the delightful moments we had at this place. Everything is so nice and tidy and they treated us with utmost care. We really felt great staying here. We were helped with places to visit, shopping and even with booking of taxi rentals. Complementary breakfast was great and the local culinary was awesome. The place is exactly like the photos shown here. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family and I won't think of any where else to stay for my next trip. Fabulous service, nice place and great location is all I have to say about this place.
