Miranda and Rosie are here to help give you the inside track.

This wonderful 1920's estate bungalow has been beautifully restored and is decorated entirely in keeping with its colonial past. The timber and panelling throughout the property are exquisite and the warm peach and turquoise colours that dominate the interiors blend perfectly with the colonial furniture.

The views of the Western Ghats and surrounding rubber plantation are breathtaking, and it is always peaceful; the only disturbance being the sound of nature.
