Very comfortable . Laly and Sulfi made us feel very welcome. Very peaceful area and so easy to explore from this base.We ate dinner one night at the homestay - was delicious. This homestay is very good value .This is such a nice area and the climate was a welcome relief from coastal temperatures. Would love to return one day and would very happily recommend Periyar Mist.

This was our first homestay and the experience was positive. We went there in the 1st week of June and were lucky that no one else was there. We had the common area (drawing cum dining) completely to ourselves. We saw passion fruit for the first time and tasted one as well, courtesy our hostess. Food was well prepared. They are nice people and we enjoyed our stay. Use only mineral water. They could have given us a list of places to see as we had a cab with driver and didn't want to go on any standard trip. He mentioned about Ottakathalamedu viewpoint in the evening and we went there immediately and found it to be very beautiful.

Room Tip: Our hostess who is a French lady prepares very good tea. Try different varieties. Simple dal was als...

Just 5 min drive from bus-stand, surrounded by coffee trees and other greenery, amidst chirping of birds, on small mountain area in Kumily, ‘Periyar Mist’ gives a decent homestay for a holiday trip. The rooms have nice interior and neatly organized. Beauty of this homestay is that it is almost in the town, but very far from noise. Lunch at roof top restaurant with a scenic beauty around, gives pleasure. The hosting couples are friendly. Food they offered is delicious. Beware! The rates of the food items are on the higher side.
Overall, stay at Periyar Mist is a good one.

I recommend the Periyar Mist Homestay (91-9497504774; periyarmist@gmail.com) most highly.
The rooms are modern and comfortable, Sulfi and his wife made my daughter and me feel like part of their family, and their two daughters are as cute and friendly as you could wish. Two brief examples of their hospitality:

1. When I asked about the location of the nearest ATM and where to buy tickets for the Periyar Reserve, Sulfi didn’t just tell me where they were, he loaded me on the back of his motorbike and took me there.

2. When they offered us dinner one night, they included us in their family dinner.

When it came time to pay, there was no extra charge for the food, transportation, etc. When I insisted that it was only fair to pay for these things, Sulfi said we could pay whatever amount we thought was proper.

Our experience staying with them was one of the highlights of my month in India.

I loved this place and was very sad to leave. Cristo was so lovely and friendly that we felt totally at home here.
The room we stayed in was very clean and the bed was really comfortable. The views from the top and fantastic and if you go up at night you can see the wild boar family foraging for their dinner!
I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you Cristo for a wonderful stay!
