This place is simply great! Beena and Varghese make yourself at home the minute they welcome you. As a result, the atmosphere with other guests is warm and friendly. And the food... and the spiced coffee... and everything!

Beena and Varghese are perfect hosts, living on a lush farm in the Wayanad hills. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here with excellent cooked food for breakfast lunch and dinner for which we were joined by the family and all guests. Our hosts organised tours of their farm which grows coffee, coconuts, bananas, papaya, black pepper, ginger, vanilla (I loved...

We had an absolutely wonderful time here. Beena and Varguese make you feel like one of the family. Eating meals together was a great way to meet other travellers too. The food is amazing and so plentiful. We have two young children and we're allowed to help ourselves in the kitchen to prepare them 'plain' food or food outside of...

This place was so beautiful that was really hard to leave. We were supposed to stay for just one day and we managed to leave on the fourth day :) rooms are spacious and spotless, and so are bathrooms and each and every corner of the common spaces. But most of all we loved the warmth and positivity of Beena...

The atmosphere at this homestay is simply amazing.It is quiet and peaceful and it is simply enough to lie in a hammock or walk through the garden to get into this slower pace yourself. Delicious homemade meals are taken together, which is a nice opportunity to meet different people from around the world. Beena and Varghese together with Hussein are...

Warm welcome from Beena and Varghese in a so peaceful and quiet place far away from the hectic indian cities. It is so good to enjoy his time doing nothing, just resting, lazing around, reading in an hammock in the garden and just wait for the next delicious meal that is served three times a day. The three days spent...

We stayed in Varnum Homestay Nov 2016. This homestay is in a wonderful location on the borders of the national park. If you can, do the 10km walk with Husain it was lovely. We also walked to a local island on our own, which was easy walking on quiet roads. Food was served around a large table so we got...

I really enjoyed my brief stay at Varnam Homestay because I received a warm welcome and felt very much at ease! Beena and her husband are great hosts and speak very good English.

Varnam homestay was probably the best and most memorable place we stayed on our honeymoon in India. Beena and Vargehese are genial hosts, and you feel like you are part of the family on a working farm. The food was amazing and there are plenty of activities and things to do nearby with an excellent guide Hussein.
