“Couldn't get any better!”
My husband and I were extremely lucky to have found accommodation Serenita Homestay during the long weekend. Gorgeous quaint little cottage with all the amenities you can think of. Nicely tucked away from the traffic, noise and crowd. We totally enjoyed our stay; sipped on hot tea, read books, played a game of scrabble and treated our eyes to the beautiful view :) Ravi and Preeti are amazing hosts, and Preeti is an excellent cook. Its a must visit place for those who love to stay away from the crowd and are not lazy to do a bit of chores on their own. Perfect holiday home.. I could live there forever.. !
Response from the owner Thanks folks for posting a review for us..much appreciated. Was a pleasure meeting up though a short stay. Hope to see you again soon! Best wishes from all at Serenita
“A serene little stay”
Serenita is a serene and utterly homely place....some place we all want to own at sometime in our lives but never getting around to So make the most of it! Run by a small family, it's as cosy as it promises, and nicely tucked away from the bustle of Kodai town, though it's just as easily accessible. We were 3 men, long time friends, catching up after a while...looking for a place to chill. We felt welcome, and left to ourselves. We thought the place is only meant for 2 adults. 3 is really a crowd here. But no one can complain they've not been warned upfront. The fare we were served graciously was simple but delicious. The stay is every bit worth what we paid for. Hope to go there again.
Response from the owner Thanks folks and sorry for that little inconvenience....hope to see you again soon!
“We are drawn to Serenita time and again.”
This is our third visit in the last two years. We keep coming back to this quaint and thoughtfully put together ' almost do it all by yourself' studio apartment for it means many things to each of us despite we staying there at the same point in time and doing much the same thing. There is time for togetherness; there is time for solitude. We listen to the sunrise and to the sunset. We are treated to the sound of silence and occasionally to the sounds of your own voices. We want to listen than be heard. We cook occasionally and are served most of the times with Preethi's excellent cuisine by the ever present and a non- intrusive Ravi. We will be back this winter too.
Response from the owner Thanks again folks for staying with us! Its our pleasure to host you and look forward to your next visit. -Cheers from all at Serenita-
“Cute, Compact and Cozy Stay !”
Serenita Homestay ! No Wonder this place has got so many positive reviews. Fantastic location for couples and nuclear families. Full privacy assured with excellent support from the Hosts. A week long stay is required to fully explore the magic of this place. Cleanliness is very high and the food deserve a special mention. Best Wishes to Serenita Family ! Thanks from... Durai & Abinaya
Response from the owner Thanks Durai & Abinaya! It was our pleasure to host you though a very short stay. Our best wishes and look forward to you giving us an opportunity again in the near future. Until then, Cheers from the Serenita Family!
“God's Own View of the Valley”
My wife and I were guilty of excessive workloads with long hours and needed to get away from all of the corporate bull, to save our souls together... My wife discovered this place by accident, and what an accident. The price, Yes, that you will ask yourself, and in all likelihood take it upon yourself to haggle a few hundreds here and there, but my fellow human, don't. Once you reach here you will regret that haggling. It is so superbly brilliant that you can't put a price tag on this. We had an elaborate plan for the three days at Kodai, but the view from the house, ah the view. Every morning was beautiful, every afternoon was crazy and the sunsets were just magical. Kodai took a back seat and this valley was all that you would care for. Our hosts were gems. All our flaws in travelling were taken care off with their help. Tips and tricks to keep kodai just about relevant. The food was amazing, as the lady of the house would go that extra mile just to make sure you get what you like, and in the climate you end up hogging a lot. She will still smile at you, as if you were a lost traveller. Ravi has good stock of just about everything and with his friends dropping by it is just another home away from home. 100% must visit. Even if you are a Kodai locale, I suggest you can bunk at their place for sometime, just for knowing how good Kodai is :P. Ps: Ravi, I am guilty of delaying this, but I guess you will understand...
Response from the owner Better late than never...thanks a ton folks for posting your comments. We sure had a great time too in your company and look forward to another such opportunity...till then Cheers from the Serenita family!!!
“One of the best hill station homestays...”
Chanced upon this place while googling. The website was very intruiging to me and my wife. We really liked the pics of the place on the website and spoke to ravindran and booked the place. We are a couple who typically look for homestay wherever we stay and were looking forward to it. And trust us, when we say this place was more than we had imagined. It was a dream house for us. We were looking for solitude and it provided the same, with uniterrupted beautiful views of the valley and hills. The room provided is enough for a couple to 'n' of days together, cut off from the world. Ravindran has thought about everything. There is a kitchen with utensils to cook in also. We did cook, maggi, tea, soup. It was fun and lovely. The food dished out by Preeti was yummy. We went as strangers but made some lovely friends. Someone has rightly said, its the people that make the place, and Ravindran and Preeti simply live upto it. I might have missed out on mannier details, but trust me, if you are a couple and looking for some alone time together, this is the place for you..!!! Cheers Ravindran and Preeti..!! Rahul n Vidya PS: Sorry for the very late review. :)
Response from the owner Thanks Rahul and Vidya for an encouraging review. Was great having you folks here and getting to know you both. Look forward to seeing you again sometime soon...cheers from Serenita!
“Moment(s) of many many WoW .. Serenita is truly serene!!”
Hi, This was a dream location and there were not even a moment of disappoint of our expectations. For us it was a breakout trip from the world of concrete, noise and polluted air. And Serenita gave all that what we wanted - Nice cozy location, excellent cottage, lovely & yummy food by Preethi (the Chola+Batura is still lingering in our mouth! and of course the Chatni Sandwich!!) and a great hospitality by Ravi & Preethi & Tanya. Plus we had surprise guests like 'Bison', Chirpy sounds of various types of Birds and constant sound of water fall from a nearby hill. Sitting on the chair amidst the cloud and sipping a hot tea is an experience of life time. Watching the mist in mornings all across the hill, looking at the play of sun shine during the day, enjoying the sudden rush of rain and watching the stars in the night (with a clear sky - lucky if you get!) makes anyone to become a poet ... Trust me, everyday (we stayed for 3 days) it was a different experience !! It was also a paradise for photographers like me... We also went for a hiking and thanks again to Ravi for making this experience too a memorable one. It was Deepavali time when we made this trip and every Deepavali we remember the Serenita for sure ! I strongly recommend for Serenita and I am quite certain the people who earlier visited would vouch with me for the memorable experiences. A total experience for all of us and we loved every bit of it. Thanks to Ravi & Preethi for making these experiences come alive and wish you the best wishes in the years to come.. For me Kodaikanal = Serenita = WoW moments all along !! Looking to meet you again ... Lots of love Sesh
Response from the owner Thanks so much Sesh, that was really quick and we really really appreciate you doing so. Well, we enjoyed the company of all of you in that little time we had together and we are truly happy that you had an enjoyable stay here. We look forward to your visit again when your busy schedules permit. Best wishes from all at Serenita!
“Heaven is here”
we went for our honeymoon and thought we will go around Kodai and see places...but their is nothing in Kodai compared to this place where you come out of the room and you will see a complete heaven in front of you. then you will feel that you dont want to go away from this place even for an hour. It was a best choice I made and the hospitality by Ravi was excellent. Thanks Ravi for making my stay a wonderful experience. I am just waiting to come back and stay again but for a longer time. Dont miss this place. Visit atleast once in your life and you will keep on visiting this place again and again. Best regards, Praveen
Response from the owner Thanks folks for posting an encouraging review for us. We sure are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to your next visit. Until then, best wishes from the Serenita family!
