Mickeys Homestay is a very nice and comfortable homestay.The owners are very hospital.It´s located in a quiet neighborhood near to the main road of Kumily.We had the garden cottage,which is equipped with a european styled bath(hot water),TV and mosqitonet.You can sit on the little terrace in the small backyard garden and enjoy some wildlife,like wild boars and many birds.

(Stayed in JAN 2011)

When travelling with a friend last year we stumbled across this place after reading a review in our 'travel bible' (Lonely Planet). The owners couldn't of been more welcoming, helping us organize our trip into the Wildlife Park which was fantastic. We had the room which you see if numerous pictures that faces the coffee plantation with a cosy bamboo chair on the balcony. the whole place really is surrounded by greenery which is welcoming after the hectic and concrete cities that seem to crowd India. To be honest the room wasn't cheap and the shower was cold but to be honest that didn't matter. After having three months in India what I found to be one of the most important things is a safe and welcoming place to leave your items and to come back to when everything can get a bit too much....which it can! The only thing that is stopping me from giving this place 5* is that the the Owners were quite forceful when getting us to organise activities in the Wildlife park, other than that great place!

Spent a week at Mickey's after staying three nights at the Periyar House in the park.
Had the front room with the balcony. Lots of birds and naughty monkeys to watch in amongst the coffee plants. Loved the great value, family ambience, the short walk to restaurants and services. Sujatha suggested some touristy things to do (elephant ride, spice farm, etc) and gave us easy to follow directions so we could do it all on our own. Very relaxing, clean and friendly. I just wish she did breakfasts, as the aromas coming from her kitchen drove me mad every day!

Room Tip: get the balcony if possible.

The hotel is located in the middle of Kumily, close to the entrance to Periyar. It is a relatively quiet location on the smaller bypass road. It is charming and small with only three rooms that we could count. Our was the front room with a very nice balcony for sitting, watching the traffic, and staring at the coffee farm across the street. Breakfast was decent. We had our own bathroom but it was a very public, open-air three meter crossing. No hot water. Good fan and mosquito net (though we didn't see many mosquitoes). The staff were very friendly and helpful. Bring your own toilet paper, available for sale at very nearby roadside stores. Careful going up and down the stairs. It looks like it would be a mess if you missed a step.

Room Tip: Front room had a nice balcony for sitting.

Murali and Sujatha are the PERFECT hosts - I felt instantly comfortable and at home at Mickey Homestay. The room itself was spacious and very clean - and I had a little outdoor area with a bench and swing-chair, very cute! Also a fantastic location for exploring Periyar Tiger Reserve - highly recommended.

We stayed at Mickey's for 2 nights while in Kumily, it was one of the best homestay we stayed in in South India, the owner is very friendly and makes you feel at home, the rooms are clean and have nice peaceful outside space, very relaxing after a trek in Periyar National Parc.

Ideal location, clean room and friendly host.

Had kept in touch with this homestay well before arrival. and ensured confirmations made at time requested.

Owners made excusion reservations in advance for us which was extremely helpful for trip planning. when you are on an extremely tight schedule.

Meals not available but this was no problem as places to eat nearby.

No reason to give this homestay anything other than good scores.
