“Karthik is a great host - quick with responses. The place itself is amazing. We broke in the new years here. Rooms are spacious and clean and have Hot water. A lovely reading or general hangout room is thrown in as well The lawns are lovely. The folks running the place are not intrusive at all and are very pleasant (they have a warm-up time like most of us do :)) Given the home style fresh food nature - they need adequate heads up on food. Fresh food so nothing to complain about. Would really recommend for large groups, it's a lot of fun!”

“A place away from the Maddening crowd, where there is peace, tranquility and oneness with nature. An absolute relaxation sets in. The ambience of the home stay is breathtaking as it is inside a tea estate. The food prepared by baby was simply amazing. Tasted just like home and the treatment too was just like home. The food was so great that we decided to have all our meals in the homestay itself.. it was very pocket friendly as well. The hosts and the staff were so warm and greeted us with smiles followed up by good long chats. The hotel staff was helpful and thanks to Mr. Sharan Deep who gave us tips to visit local places. The homestay is around 6 kms drive from kotagiri but still away from the hustle bustle. The moment we stepped into Fuschia we were awestruck with the view they had, along with the waterfalls. We literally felt we were in a magical place. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Each cabin has it's own charm. Please ask Mr. Sharan on the list of wild animals that have visited the Fuschia estate. Also do all him to give a tour if his house which is very tastefully decorated with nature's artifacts. The USP of the place is the warmth and hospitality of the host, the view, waterfalls, wild animals that you get to see and the remarkable FOOD for sure. thanks to the staff (Baby and family) there. And thanks to Mr. Sharan Deep for making our stay so great. The next time I visit Ooty. I am gonna be there... :-)”
