Ever wanted to live in a tea estate bungalow? Jungle Tide is available for hire as a whole bungalow on a staffed basis, with or without the separate Kingfisher Garden Room. Whole house hires are for a minimum of one week as Jungle Tide is our home and we would need to leave and find somewhere else to stay – which we are happy to do if the hire is for a week or more.
Rates shown below are for self-catering groups including cleaning and servicing. If you want our staff to prepare meals for you please enquire about the additional costs. For extended bookings of the whole house (two weeks or more) please enquire for special rates.
The maximum number of people the house can accommodate is 12 without the Kingfisher Camping Barn and 18 when included. These numbers include two people using folding beds; if everyone is in a ‘proper’ bed the maximum numbers are 10 and 16 respectively.
Unfortunately due to previous experience we do not accept all male groups.
Jungle Tide is a staffed bungalow. Our housekeepers, Martin and Rani, live on site and will keep everything spotless. They will do your laundry, manage the pool and gardens, provide meals (if required) wash up and generally deal with everything – so you can relax! They can also arrange transport for you if required.
We are active on several house exchange sites and often exchange a week or more at Jungle Tide for places we want to go to, especially in the UK or for “points”. If you are interested in a house exchange please contact us. House-swappers also receive preferential rates if we cannot agree an exchange but they still want to come as paying guests, either for the whole house or just one or two rooms.
*Please Note: Kingfisher is in our lower gardens close to the swimming pool. There are 48 steps down from the house so this room is not suitable for people with mobility issues.

Full terms and conditions will be provided when you book. The essentials are:
Rs30,000/- is payable when you book your stay, at least 14 days in advance of arrival. It is repayable no later than 14 days after your departure date if your group has complied with the main requirements, which are:
Respect for our staff
Jungle Tide is their home and they need time off and to be treated at all times with respect. If our staff report behaviour which we consider to be exploitative or inappropriate your entire security deposit will be forfeited.
Reasonable care not to damage our property.
Of course we expect occasional breakages but if our staff report that damage was caused either deliberately or by negligence on the part of anyone in your group, including children, replacement costs will be deducted from your security deposit. (For example we have had instances of beds being broken by children jumping on them unsupervised by the parents.)
If you want to bring pets please discuss this with us before hand as we have 3 (friendly to humans) dogs. So we need to decide if your pet will be safe/happy in our home. You will not be required to look after our dogs! They do sleep in the house but are not allowed in bedrooms or on furniture. Both are very docile and child-friendly and they will also accompany you on walks if you wish.
