We had a very pleasant stay at Kolavara heritage home. Our hosts vistal and vatsalya were very welcoming and their hospitality is really worth mentioning. We would recommend this to anyone who would like to experience a well maintained heritage homestay surrounded by thick greenery of plantations with sweet music of birds.
