We had a wonderful time in Kumily in the Edamala Homestay. The family lovingly cared for us so that we felt like home. Thank you! The rooms were very clean, the beds and chairs super comfy. The surrounding is very quiet, so that we slept so good! And we could practice Yoga on the rooftop.

Jose and family were wonderful hosts. Myself, husband and three teenage children found Edamala to be a perfect place to stay. We used three bedrooms and enjoyed the open space with hanging swings. I would reccomend the wonderful breakfasts. The hosts were very accommodating for the more picky among us and always provided toast and jam as well as more traditional dishes. The location is perfect, and an easy walk into town. Perriyar is amazing. I highly recommend taking the walking tour. We were able to see many animals, including elephants.

Excellent stay. Very convenient. Great facilities. Amazing Host. Very peaceful atmosphere. Clean.Highly recommended. Anyone wants to have a nice stay with a medium budget can approach without thinking twice. We chose to have food from outside. Still Mr. Joseph, the host,served us tea in the morning. We never felt that we were away from home. We all are very much satisfied Note:Only Families are allowed
