Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I really enjoyed my stay here in Serenita with my wife.
Nice place with homely feeling and great view on top of the hill.
Lovley warm welcome and very friendly host
'EVERYTHING' is just perfect..... no more comments!

If you are looking for a place to stay in Kodai without much worries, no doubt SERENITA would be ranked top

“Tranquility”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a really wonderful 'time-out' at Serenità Homestay, Kodaikanal.
Our experience (though our stay itself was only for a little over 2 days), cannot be expressed or explained so easily!!
Where do we begin? From the time we made contact over phone; the process of bookings & confirmation; the care to find out one's food-tastes & preferences; the guidance given from the time we entered Perumalmalai up to the home-stay; the personalised welcome by both of you.
Or did it begin from the pre-sunrise on the 1st day of our stay? The chirping of the birds gently awakening us?; the wonderful views across & beyond Perumalmalai peak; sunlight in all its hues, clouds rolling over the hills & down the valleys; the sweet, fresh smell of air, inviting one to take deep inhalations in every breath.
Or was it the tastefully made, delicious dishes of Preeti's?; the added touch of pickles & powders to tickle one's taste-buds; not too spicy, just enough to want some more; the post-prandial stupor, nudging one to cuddle under the covers with a book, or else loll on the garden-chair.
Central to all this, to my mind, were the constant but soft cacophony of the bird; the diligent hoopoe-father bringing the insect-meal back to mother and chicks, like a metronome, every 10 minutes; the energetic, playful & inquisitive squirrels; so many different species of birds; bulbuls with their matching calls to one another; the koels keeping sentinel and giving warning sounds; sparrows busily gorging food in the grass; a couple of kites suddenly deciding to explore the slope in front of the cottage, swooping & gliding from one end to the other, giving alarm to potential prey;
Or was it the evenings, when a short, lazy walk up the road, gives one a panaromic view of the hills to the east & north, to Perumalmalai and the Palani gap; the valleys with the occasional smoke rising from the kitchen-stoves in the villages just below; the sunset in all its splendour; the gushing, gurgling sound of the waterfall across the valley, caused by rains; the silent murder of crows, as they make their way back to their night-roosts; the nip in the air, harking the rains, not too cold; the quickening of one's pace to get back to base before the shower starts;
Good things in life are, as they say, but fleeting; our very short sojourn at Serenita has only increased our resolve to return soon!!

“Almost a home above the clouds!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Because it is there! An exotic, beautiful home to spend a holiday! Breathtaking views, the calm, the exotic sunrise & sunsets, the ever singing birds & some surprising visitors from nature every now & then. We lived every moment of it, you just don't feel like moving out. Wonderful hosts, who go out of their way to attend your every miniscule requests. A topping in the form of some excellent homemade food served at your doorstep. A must recommend for small families!
