"Kanagha akka, Radha akka, Rajesh, and Augustine-Praveen were the ideal hosts at home and for a tour around Kotagiri and Ooty. Whether it was helping source medicines, finding the best tourist spots, or pre-planning a birthday evening, they did a splendid job of creating a positively memorable experience. Special thanks to Riya and Nipin for the ease of booking and travel coordination. Our four-year-old daughter summed up the experience by saying that the food was so tasty at home and that she has never eaten so much and enjoyed so much in a holiday before :-) Thank you and see you soon." Karthik Subbaraman, March 2023.

"Ashish and Rucha have created a lovely home away from home nestled in the middle of the clouds in Kotagiri. The chorus in our departing vehicle was that we should have stayed double the number of days we did!!" Vivek Sundar, October 2022

"And it’s a wrap. Though we’re leaving reluctantly. Lovely couple of days.  Thanks, Rucha, Hash and Team Observatory!"
