The place is 3-4km outside Kumuli but not hard to find. It is quiet and nature lovers will see lots of birds. The bungalow is modern and clean and well decorated. Unfortunately it has no Wifi (though that was in the deal). Hot water was difficult to get in adequate quantity and a kettle in the room will help tea making. We like homestays when they help us interact with the family running the place in a homely way. May be we arrived at the wrong time but we did not find them helpful at the start contrary to what we expected from other reviewers. Unfortunately that set the tone of our interactions. There is a uphill walk near the home which trekkers may like.

This homestay is in a beautiful quiet mountain setting next to cardamom plants, tall trees, a variety of other local spices. The owner, his wife, and their two sons were warm and welcoming. They asked for our preferences in the food they prepared for us and were attentive to our needs. They took us on a guided walk through their area. The food was delicious! They used freshly picked vegetables from their garden. We had wonderful conversations with each member of the family. We stayed in one of two available rooms for guests--a true homestay. The room was clean and well-maintained with a double bed, desk, and chair with an adjoining private bathroom. This homestay is difficult to find since it is located in a rural area, and it was helpful to call the owner to get directions. I highly recommend this homestay to travelers who value learning about the culture of an area, delicious food, and enjoying beautiful views.

Not easy to locate using Google Maps. Google Maps would drive you very near to the Home Stay but not to the exact location, so better take help of the owner. Ample Parking space. Had a one night stay. Booked 2 Rooms for a good deal on GoIbibo. Very quick Check In & Check Out. It is in a village which is 6Kms/20 mins drive from the town. So plan accordingly. Did not try their home made Dinner as it was 10:30 PM by the time we reached the Home Stay. Family (including the kid) were waiting to welcome the guests, so guys who are planning to stay for a day or two would definitely enjoy their hospitality. Rooms & Bathrooms were spacious. Home Stay is perfect for Family & Couples. Well maintained Bed Linen & Towels. As it is a home stay, do not expect toileteries, but they provided Soap & Paste. 24hrs Hot Water. As we planned for Border Hiking the next day we could not try their complementary B/F. Overall a pleasant stay.

The only problem I have faced with this property was the difficulty to find this out..there were no sign boards on the way. The house owner helped us to get there by phone. We were driving from Munnar. I liked the place and little house located in between the trees. The rooms were not big enough but clean. Television is in the common room only. Also the owner family cooked delicious food. We have tasted cooked Jackfruit for the first time in our life and that was awesome.They served that with our dinner. We came here to visit only Thekkady but we have visited so many hidden gems too. the house owner helped us to visit all these places. I highly recommend this place for families and someone looking for a holiday away from the crowds.

We stayed here for 4 nights back in February. Our hosts Varghese & Suja were very friendly and helpful. They arranged for us to be collected from bus terminal which was approx 15 minutes drive to their place at minimal cost. Also arranged transport around the area for us. Bedroom and toilet was neat and clean. Suja's breakfasts and dinners were so good. So much food on the table. We just couldn't eat so much. home stay was situated in a very cquite place. Easy to walk around the village but hard to find any restaurants and shopping nearby. Varghese can arrange any tours you want to do. Thank you Varghese & Suja for allowing us to stay at your wonderful home. We would certainly recommend this home stay.
