Meals and beverages

As you know, breakfast and dinner are included in the FU-BEST homestay option. Additional food and beverages are not provided by the family and are thus a matter you are expected to take care of yourself. Perhaps you can be given some room in the refrigerator, etc. Please discuss these matters with your family & friends

Conflicts and differences

Conflicting interests and various sorts of differences are a part of everyday life and must by no means have just negative consequences. The learning effect can be of great significance for the guest as well as the host-family. Be ready to deal with potential conflicts or differences in an open and honest manner from the beginning. Do not let the situation reach the crisis stage. Discuss problems with your hosts first.

Communication regarding your presence and absence On a regular basis

When you leave the home, it is vital for the hosts to know when to expect your return. This is particularly important with regard to meals. Thus, please notify the family if you will be late or if you are planning to spend the evening elsewhere

Do not leave your valuables (money, jewelries, etc.) unattended inside the bedroom. Only breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided by the host. Snacks or snacks items are for the expense of the guest;

Liability and Code of Conduct

Please note that your homestay is subject to the conditions spelled out in the Declaration of Personal Liability you signed as part of your application as well as in the program’s Code of Conduct (posted on our website)

These are all common sense statements but well worth reiterating as Coorg is home to friendly people happy to welcome visitors who appreciate their livelihood and culture. It is therefore important to remember to be considerate to the host family, but most of all enjoy the experience of life in this unique and wonderful place.

The host is your second family; so, please feel at home.
