“Stay at Munnar”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

An amazing experience in the hills of Munnar. Philip and Annie are great hosts and they have a wonderful property. If you've stayed on the tree house or the cave one could not have asked for better fun holiday. We were a family and we just found the whole experience amazing.

We were searching for a decent place to stay in Munnar and we came across this option of home stay. After viewing other places, this place seemed far better option than the closed hotel rooms between the hustle and bustle of main market. Rooms here were cozy and spacious. Our room's windows opened to the greenery outside and our mornings were greeted by a whistling bird around among many others. A little far from the main area, this place offered peace and tranquility. The hosts were warm and polite. Home cooked food was fresh and delicious too. The rooms had all amenities that one needs along with a decent television. Mister Firoz, the owner of this property, also took us to the cardamom plantations around and told us about various other flora and fauna present there. It was certainly a great value for money.
Also If your pocket can support- they have a well furnished tree house as an option that offers even more wonderful view of the valley outside. They also have a cave house which seemed a little closed. Though if you have children they may love it!
P.S. Near this property at a walkable distance, there is a place that offers shows of Kathakali Dance performances and Kalaripayattu (One of the oldest form of martial arts) under the name of Punarjani. Don't miss them if you have time! Enjoy your stay in Munnar!

Awesome experience for us with Philip and Annie, and we were a group of 8 people vacationing in Kerala for a few days mid of June and just returned to the US. We had booked all the 3 premium rooms on the 1st floor with a great view of the valley. It's close to all the other resorts, but this house felt like home. Excellent location. About 50 yards away is also an Ayurvedic massage center which we availed and it was great. We got to the house on the 1st day and noticed that they didn't have the Sony 6 soccer channel and since we were a bunch of soccer fanatics wanting to watch the World Cup matches, and we asked Philip if there was anyway to get that channel....in 30 mins he got the connection for us. Now that's service! Fantastic food...cook Shanthama knows how to make some killer food....kids were hooked to her gobi manchurian dish and that was the most popular request from them. :-) We had breakfast, lunch and dinner from them and we were very satisfied. Premium rooms are pretty good....don't expect resort-like rooms for what you are paying, but they are very nice and comfortable. Power went out often due to rains, but they have a generator to keep the main lights and fans working. We wanted to stay in a house versus a resort. I would recommend this place to anyone with families, solo or couples. Thanks Philip and Annie for sharing your home with us. Wish you all the best and hope the guests take care of your place. Cheers.

Room Tip: Get the premium rooms on the 1st floor....far right corner for the best view, sunny, and very spacio...

I went to Kerala back in 2013, and our first stop was munnar and we were staying in this Estate Residency, Must say it is an awesome property. Talking about this home stay, its very affordable and the service provided was more then the money paid. Worth every single penny.
Checkin was quick, the owner of the place Mr. Firoz is very polite, very friendly and helpful. All rooms have misty mountain view which is ecstatic. Food was amazing and can be served according to your wish. There was a decent satellite TV in the room (though i didn't watch it much), hot and cold water was in the shower as promised & beds were comfy.
Overall, a very nice property away from the hustle bustle of the city. I hope the tree house they were constructing is completed by now. I wish them all the best and hope ya all will also enjoy as much as we did

This was our first homestay experience. We are praised with Philip and Anie's hospitality. Nice location and Standard rooms are good. quality of food was very good, though a bit expensive but it is acceptable. Philip and Anie always stretched their hands for all kind of helps, like the room services and arrangement of the nice car for sight seeing, houseboat etc. It was a life time experience visiting the spice garden of Philip.

Our first homestay experience turned out truly incredible. Mr. Firoz and his whole family were very pleasant and welcoming and made us feel at home away from home. A little far from the city but in a relaxing quiet location. The rooms on first floor were spacious having a beautiful view outlooking the window. The meals were in genral tasty though somewhat costly given the portions being served. But that was about the only downside.
Mr. Firoz was gracious enough to take us on a morning walk tour to his cardamom plantation, where he also showed us coffee, black pepper and other plants, and shared his knowledge about the local flora and fauna. The experience has made us open to choosing homestays in future travels.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are airy with a great view

When we decided to visit Munnar and were searching for a place to stay, most of them were occupied. We were worried that we might not be able to get any place to stay. But luckily one of the places we called up referred Estate Residency. We called up and Mr Philip Firosh answered and informed that they have one room called as "Cave Room" which will be given to us. We were sceptical at first after listening to the name. However, are fears were unfounded when we saw the room. It was beautifully decorated and built like a tree shaped structure. The room itself was located in the "bark" of the tree!!!!

The view from the room was amazing to say the least. You can see the valley below and all the plantations also. The room is sufficient for a couple and very neatly maintained. The food was homely and tasty and there is enough space for car parking.

The place is located 8 km away from Munnar towards Cochin at a place called Pallivasal

The people at the Residency are very helpful which includes both the sons of Mr Firosh and the staff

Overall, a nice and excellent place to stay with very warm staff. Would definitely recommend choosing this place if you are visiting Munnar

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in the upper floor
