My sister and I travelled to Kumily with the intention of staying one night. However, upon meeting Cheryl and her wonderful, hospitable family, we decided to extend the stay for an extra 2 nights. Dean Dale cottages provided the most authentic, non-touristy experience of India- the whole family, including Cheryl's two beautiful kids, Tina and Dean who are similar age to my sister and I, took extra pains to show us around, give us helpful advice, chauffeur us to and from destinations and even take us to the wedding of one of their friends, in which they dressed us up in traditional saris and took us out as though we had been friends for years. They are the most welcoming and lovely family and we have stayed in contact long after our trip was over. We can't recommend them enough if you're after a memorable, through and genuine time in Kumily and long lasting connections afterwards.

We stayed for three days with Cheryl and her family. The rooms are very clean and the whole family are engaged in keeping us happy as guests. To us it was working out fine with staying a bit outside the village, as they were driving us and picking us up from various locations.
We recommend this place.

Lovely place, pleasent rooms and great service. Kind and sweet family that will help you with anything (taking you to a dentist for example...)
Will help you find a good trekking program so you can enjoy the Periyar reserve and be back to the dance shows in town.

This home-stay just minutes from the center bazaar offer its guests a beautiful neighborhood and clean facilities to enjoy the pristine nature of Kerala and even the bordering Tamil Nadu. Here your hosts will offer you advice and help getting around and covering some of the best attractions the area has to offer. With the Dean Dale family you will not be short of viewpoints to go or gardens to see. Dean Dale was the most comfortable and hospitable place we stayed throughout our 3 month journey in India.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor with the songs of birds playing

Dean Dale Cottages was the perfect choice for our short stay in Kumily and Thekkady. Located reasonably close to all the places of interest, this place was very comfortable and clean. Cheryl and Dean were extremely friendly , helpful and always smiling. They gave personal recommendations to us regarding places to visit, restaurants, tickets and Dean even dropped us and picked us up whenever he had the time. My family and I had a wonderful time here thanks to the generous hospitality of Dean Dale Cottage! I would recommend this place to everyone visiting Kumily and Thekkady. If you are looking for value for money and a warm and friendly environment, Dean Dale cottage is the perfect place to stay!
