“A Room with a View”
Reviewed 13 February 2010

The White House is in an excellent location: central Kumily, within walking distance from the restaurants and shops.
You have the choice of either a modern room with an en suite bathroom and AC, or a bamboo hut with a shared bathroom. We had the modern room which was basic in its decoration, but was really spacious, had everything you need and was spotlessly clean. The highlight was its lovely veranda with a hanging wicker chair, overlooking the Periyar Reserve - a great place to relax in the evening before wandering down the road for dinner.
The White House was probably our favourite place that we stayed at during the entire trip in Kerala. It was fantastic value and we'd definitely return.
Our stay there was arranged by a nearby Homestay owner, Meena. We were originally going to stay at her beautiful homestay, Villa Prakriti, but there was no space so she kindly arranged a room at the White House as an alternative (she also arranged a bunch of other things for us - elephant rides, jungle trek, etc etc)
