Hill View Farm Animal Refuge is run by a registered animal welfare charity, India Project for Animals and Nature (IPAN) and is the permanent and peaceful home to 150 rescued animals. Your payment via Airbnb goes 100% and directly to support the care of the rescued animals living at the animal refuge.
The space includes one bedroom and one small lounge that can also be used as a bedroom, kitchenette with fridge and a kettle and a basic bathroom. The verandah is towards the forest and the hills where you can spot wildlife in the evenings. This is simple and rural and in the nature and we can not keep the space completely free of bugs so please be prepared for that.

During the week the staff of the Animal Refuge is present to assist and on the weekends me and my family will be around. On Saturdays and Sundays it is possible to book for horse riding lessons but this needs to be confirmed in advance with me (Ilona Otter).

The Hill View Farm is about 800m off from the Ooty-Masinagudi-Theppakadu road and that 800m is very rough and requires a jeep or 4x4 vehicle. You can park your car next to 'Pushpa auto care' in Mavanalla village and ask for a local jeep taxi (ask for Babu) to drop you to the farm. This will usually cost Rs. 150-200 or during the light hours we can send a person to walk with the guests to the farm.
The Animal Refuge houses about 40 dogs, 60 donkeys, 10 ponies and horses and 20 cattle.The Animal Refuge houses about 40 dogs, 60 donkeys, 10 ponies and horses and 20 cattle.
There is no food provided, please arrange for your own meals. Drinking water from our borewell is available from the kitchen of the main house. You are most welcome to join in the farm works and help the shelter staff in feeding, cleaning and grooming. Please ask them to show what you could do. Please note that the place is a charity-run animal refuge funded by donations and with limited staff mainly for the care of the animals, not so much as hospitality staff to serve the guests.
No smoking indoors or near the animals or their feed. Guests can not walk in the forest at any time and they should not leave the farm property by foot after 5:30pm because of the possible elephant encounters in the evenings. When walking on the farm property after dark, always carry a torch with you to check if any elephant has strayed in the property. The guests need to sign an indemnity form on their arrival to understand the risk that the wildlife posses and to declare that they have understood the safety precautions.
