My wife daughter and inlaws stayed here for 3 nights - oct 11-13th. this property is situated in an amazing location, with comfortable amenities, clean and extremely hospitable staff. special mention here about Reddy and Chandru.And Lucky Brownie, the Daschund. Inspite of not being a local, Reddy is an amazing cook of local cuisine. The beach is a mere 100 feet away from the property, and is devoid of any people, except for the fishermen in the morning goind about their jobs. Dr. Suresh Kannan, the owner, Kudos to you for setting up this placeand maintaining it the way it is.Wn loved the stay an will come back many times over.
This place is about 10 KM from Kannur town. We drove down to the place, and again the approach is motorable till 100 meters from the property. There are multiple routes from Bangalore. Bangalore - Srirangapatna being common, route one and most taken is via Hunsur, Periyapatna. Here you can go 3 ways - via gonicoppa, or virajpet, or Siddapura - virajpet. then thru iritty and onwards to either via thalassery road and turn on edapally - panvel highay or via Kannur town. If you want to drive thru nagarhole forests, then turn left at Hunsur thru Hunsur town junction, nagarhole, kutta, mannanthavady and Thalassery road - highway junction and Thottada town, close to which the property is located. You can also go thru, after Mysore, Via Handpost, HD Kote, Nagarahole, Mannanthavady onwards. I went thru Iritty and came back via Kutta. The road after Periyapatna for about 10 KM is rough. The road i took back via mannanthavady and Kutta - Hunsur is very good, but a bit longer.
People driving with Google Maps help, the last point shown leading to the property is wrongly pinned. It will take you 2 km north of the property. Reach Thottada town and call Reddy for directions.Request Dr. Suresh to undo and repin the property on Google Maps.
Once again i suggest stock on your beverages and any special food requirements from wherever you are travelling from. You may not get the beverages of your choice in Kerala. Food is very homely, amazingly tasteful, and made to your tastes/wishes. And as the website suggests, leave your footwear behind.
