“One of the best budget homestays in India”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

When we arrived in Kumily, we first went to another budget option (one we picked up from the LP), but we decided to also look at Periyar Mist, what was recommended by some guy we met at the busstand. When we arrived we immediately realized that this must be one of the best budget places in town. Very clean and comfortable rooms with a warm welcome. The guy from the bus stand was a cousin from this family and arranged our trekking and also picked us up and brought us to our tours. I brought the kids to school and we ate great Kerala food. Nice family.

I had booked a room In Periyar Mist on first week of Feburary but due to some unforeseen circumstances I had to cancel my Thekkady trip. And I informed Mt Sulfi about it only few hours before I was supposed to arrive at Thekkady. I didn't expect my advance money to be refunded but I still took a chance and asked him to refund my amount. And he agreed saying that he cannot refund the entire amount but will definitely refund some of it. And within a day my account was credited.

Can you expect such service anywhere?

I will definitely recommend this homestay to everyone.

This was probablely the nicest budget accomdation that we have been to in Southern India. The family were warm and friendly and willing to make the extra effort to please.They made us feel at home. The place was really nice and quiet. You could sit on the roof and see the hills around or you can sit on the verrenda a see the gardens of the other villas and guest houses around. Walking distance from the center of the town, one has a feeling of staying in the country side.
The room are clean spacious and well kept.
There is a prossibilty of mosquitos at night. bring some protection.

Wau, we were SO happy to stay here. This was so relaxing.
Mr Shukoor who runs the place offers, as he called it "maximum service".
He gets you tickets, he gets you on elephant rides when they are fully booked. He drives you and pick you up again.
Fantastic stay, this place i wanna come back to.
We had four nights which was ok, but I wish we had 2 more to relax and enjoy the climat and walk a bit in the city.

We enjoyed this place very much!

We spend three days in this home stay with Sulfikar and his wonderful and lovely family, then we agree to go back for two weeks more because the área and the special people around were really great. The rooms are clean and comfortables, and the Chai they offers to you is excellent. We had a nice time cooking with Sulfikars wife and his daughters, and travel around whit them. Sulfikar also organized for us a special yoga course, not the tourist one. We learn a lot about yoga practice with a professional teacher, we can highly recomend this posibility because was a special learning and not only that course other offers to all the tourist. The family also organized a special ayurvedic treatment for my husband, with an specialist who really works in an ayurvedic hospital, my husband was very satisfied and happy with this treatment and we were really happy to make this choice and enjoy this time whit all of them like in a family. We hope to back there some day. Thank Sulfi and Family.

Room Tip: The room in terrace is the better one.

We stayed here for four nights, in this clean and cosy homestay run by mr. Shukoor and his family.
The room was large and clean with a wonderful and peaceful view.
We were even lucky enough to have some monkeys visit our balcony :)
Mr. Shukoor offers an outstanding service level, he helped us with trips, tickets, pick-ups and drop-offs. This man is working around the clock to make sure you enjoy your stay!
The Shukoor family opened their hearts and home for us and even served us delicious Keralan disches.

This place has with out any doubts been the best experiance on our journey and we cannot recommend this place enough.

Stop looking for other homestays, this the best!

We stayed here for 3 nights and wished we had stayed for more. Super clean and comfortable room at a great price. Sulfy and the family treated us wonderfully. Special thanks to the girls for the songs and stories and Mrs. ``Sulfy`` for the tea, food, and clean clothes. We`ll be back next February for more!
