I stayed at Koshys on a school expedition. As a group leader it was excellent as all of the students were in their own self contained apartment whilst I stayed in the main family house. The accommodation was clean and perfect for our needs. The food was excellent, only surpassed by the generosity and kindness of our wonderful hosts, Zac...

Hosts were friendly and prepared a nice home cooked dinner and breakfast at a small charge. Room was comfortable. WiFi was available outside the room near the study table. A little away from town center with no street lighting.

We felt so much at home staying with Zac and Ramini in Kumily Village. They couldn’t have been kinder or more attentive. A heart warming experience of a genuine 'ordinary' family home. Ramani took so much trouble with our breakfasts and evening meals. We ate a great variety of good food and really enjoyed her cooking and our interesting conversations....

Koshy's Homestay is convenient, clean, comfortable and in a quiet area of Kumily. It is right next to the elephants and the theatre and in easy reach of Periyar national park. Hosts Zac and Raema are a delightful couple who provide breakfast and an evening meal if required.

Thank you so much for our wonderful stay in your home. Thekkady is quite a busy little town and staying at Koshys provided a welcome relief from the chaos. Ultimately when one travels in India it is important to realise that things like no hot water and loss of electricity are normal so people should not let such experiences negatively...

I would like to thank both Zach and Ramani for a wonderful and memorable time at their homestay. I travelled with an organisation called World Challenge last month and this was one of the best accommodation we had when travelling Kerala. It is very convenient since it's very close to many attractions such as Connemara Tea Factory, the Spice Gardens...

Zac and Ramani accommodated our large group making us feel completely at home in our new surroundings. They were so attentive to our every need, the house was kept neat and clean, and the food was incredible. There is also so much to do and see in the surrounding area.
