“Home stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

Very homely environment. Neat and clean rooms, good authentic south Indian food. Appa was too delicious. Good view of the periyar National park. Is a complete value for money with a guaranteed comfortable stay and hospitality.

We have a fantastic 3 night stay here during Christmas time. Shibu is an overall great guy. Extremely helpful in this busy time.

The rooms are big. The rooms are clean. He can get you tea and coffee in your room. You can look out at the wildlife from right outside your room if you stay on higher floors. Why would you want to stay any place at may 5 to 10 times the cost/night?

I strongly recommend that you stay here and use the money on the jungle safari or something more adventurous than the boat ride.

Keep your expectations in line with the money you pay here. Trust me they more than deliver on the value for money front.

Room Tip: top floors are better

Stayed here in december , 2013. Location is superb and stone away from periyar national park gate and other massage studios. Rooms are very spacious and super clean. Hot water is available . Place is very quiet and nice views from balcony.

Mr Shibu is great host. This place is complete value for money and better than fancy hotels and resorts.

Why wouldn't you stay at Kerala House? It is less than half a mile away from the Periyar Tiger Reserve. In fact you can see the reserve from the room balcony. From the balcony itselfwe saw two different types of monkeys and several species of birds. Ambadi Junction where restaurants like Bamboo Grove, French Restaurant and Ambadi Hotel Restaurant are, is also less than a mile away. The room we were in was very neat and clean and tastefully decorated. It was well lit and well ventilated. Shibu arranged for our martial arts and kathakali performance tickets and we had the best seats.

Shibu, the person that owns and runs Kerala House, helped us figure out things to do in Thekkady. He is a polite and well spoken person that runs a very good establishment at very reasonable prices.

This was the cheapest and best place we stayed at this trip. That is a very rare combination!!

This wonderful little home stay close to the Wild Life Sanctuary is super!
The rooms are quite big and has roomy balconies, where you can sit and enjoy the view of the wild life. The place is very clean, and Shibu (the owner) and his lovely makes you feel very welcome. She is an excellent cook, so if you want to try some special Indian food, just ask if she is avalible to cook something. (small charge)
Nothing is a problem for this lovely people and i truly enjoyed my stay here. We had 2 nights, and i would not have minded staying for a bit longer.
Will definitely come back and stay again.

The place is right next to the forest and one can enjoy the fresh air.
the rooms are big and clean , shibu is a great host and he makes sure that your trip is worth every moment as he guides well and will do your reservations so that you need not run for every need.
the area is full of restaurants so food is not a issue here.

Room Tip: Take the top room with a forest view the right most.
