We were in Melvins Homestay last weekend , the rooms and bathrooms were clean. Food was amazing and Melvin himself took care of all the arrangements. He gave us place in his private estate for bon fire and dinner, the team had a blast.

I have been to Wayanad before, but Melvin's homestay is excellent in all type of provisions, especially his hospitality. A wonderful place in terms of family & the kids would be completely overwhelming. Foods are delicious. The fresh toddy is the ultimate & one of my favorite.

Melvin n family have set a benchmark in hospitality. We had a very memorable stay, highly recommend for families. The home stay is situated near the sprawling tea estate. The view is simply refreshing, ideal for a weekend getaway. And not to forget, awesome homemade Kerala cuisine. Loved the food, truly authentic. Satish
