We were made to feel very very welcome and at home.The rooms are spacious, clean and well kept..amazing value for money. A great quiet location to relax and escape hectic travels they can even arrange a massage \for you if you really wanna wind down.It feels like the family are happy to help you out in what ever way they can.I would completely recommend it to anyone traveling through Kerala.

This luxury homestay offered everything we could ask for: Clean and spacious rooms, friendly atmosphere and great advice for the surrounding Kumily area. It is not simply a fantastic homestay, its a must-stay!

This was probably the nicest place I stayed in India. The rooms were clean, spacious and good value for money, but more importantly Cheryl and her family proved to be the kindest and most accommodating of hosts. When I mentioned that I wanted to go to the Sabarimala festival, Cheryl sorted everything out for me, including introducing me to another family who would show me the ropes. And Cheryl's husband drove me around in his car to get all the items of necessary puja. I had a brilliant, and genuine experience at Sabarimala because of it. I really cant express how they went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure my stay was enjoyable. Real Indian hospitality. I recommend this place heartily!

Room Tip: I had one of the upstairs rooms with a shared balcony. Very nice.

What a wonderful and caring family who ensure your stay in their spacious and clean rooms are as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Cheryl is attentive but not intrusive and welcomes you into their home making you feel part of her family. I was also very well looked after by her daughter Tina and enjoyed their company very much. You were asked what you would like for meal times with Cheryl always endeavouring to please and the food was delicious. If you wanted to do specific activities, of which there are many to do in this area, the trip was all organized for you. I had only planned to stay a couple of nights but remained for a week in this very relaxing and excellent value for money homestay. Thank you for the fantastic memories.

The Indian tourism's tagline is "atiti deva bhava" which means "Guest are like God" and this goes hand in hand with the Indian culture of treating guests as ambassadors of the divine. And this family is a perfect example of this culture. Here you are not only made to feel divine but also a part of a loving family. This family takes hospitality to another level, be it Racheed volunteering to assist us driving up the ghats, Cheryl accompanying us while sightseeing and shopping, Tina's dance performance or Dean driving us around, this family gives you the Incredible India experience. Even the food at their place is sumptuous, delicious and reasonable. One of the best places I have stayed at in India.

Room Tip: The balcony outside the rooms on the first floor is the perfect location to get inspiration for crea...
