Stayed at the homestay for 5 nights in June and Cheryl and Rasheed were great hosts. The upstairs rooms with the verandah were fantastic in the monsoon time. Definitely recommend this as the first option in Kumily.

As the previous reviewers state, the hospitality is good here. The whole family is very welcoming. Cheryl will go to any lengths to please. She even sent a parcel of clothes to my folk which I left behind, unwilling to carry it all the way back. They have this jeep sight-seeing tour for the main places to view in Kumily area and part of Tamil Nadu to see a vineyard and this I feel is a must do. Costs 2500/- rupees might be better value if one shares the jeep with other guests if this is a possibility. I came really up close with monkeys on my way to/fro, be certain to carry some food to feed them!! The rooms are nice, linen clean. They need to give more attention to the degree of cleanliness in the bathroom though. I will be back next year!!

Very nice homely place. The owners were like family. Food was excellent .surrounded by greenery. Away from noise & pollution. Planned for two days only, didn't feel like leaving so early. Will be back soon.

The hospitality is really good here. Cheryl and her family are really welcoming. The rooms are spacious (for the price paid) it is a fair rate that they charge and soap and towels are provided as well. However, the bathroom needs to be spruced up especially when they are expecting guests. If not for this, I would give it a full 5 star rating. Please carry your own insect repellent due to the dense vegetation mosquitoes and other bugs are visitors here. The breakfast is plentiful and tasty too. Overall I love this place, thekkady.

The rooms where very nice and clean haven't had anything as nice since I was at a expensive hotel chain in Mumbai.
The family was so sweet that I felt bad leaving after only one night.
They asked me my budget and what I could afford then offered me food after just a few minutes.
I haven't felt this at home since leaving my family.

I'm very thankful for staying here. Cheryl is a very helpful woman. She and Basheer is always there is you need anything. This is our second time here and I'm sure I will come back again soon!

The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the kitchen is for use if you want to try cook some food the indian way.
The beautiful surroundings is a must-see.

If you have time you should spend more than one night here to take a day to the Periyar Reserve, try out the different food and snacks from the local area and of course, enjoy the relaxing mountains.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Recommendations. - Wifi is located close to the kitchen. - The road makes more noise during nigh...
