Hello everyone Sea hut is a home stay with 4 independent double bed rooms on a common veranda.The room has a king size double bed and an aircon in it. Its a perfect retreat for tourist who want to run away from the hectic city's.
Sitting on the wooden pavement of "OUR SEA HUT". Mild sunray's, mild breeze flowing across my face, listning to the sound of the ocean whispering to come closer to it. A home which reminds you of the years old heritage. a place which doesnt need any technologies to keep you engrossed. the nature alone takes to a different world. a world away from noise and pollution. the house is enveloped in the beauty of the ancient times. the architecture designs and the pillars take you back to those times when the ancient kings used to reside. The main attraction is the backyard of this place. A huge background where children can play on the sand the house has indoor open veranda to enjoy the calmness. there is a particular feel which takes you out of your world of worries and into a calm surrounding. Where you forget everything and lay back to enjoy the calmness Surrounded by sea on the background which keeps calling you to come and see how she dances and sing. sometimes it also shows how her sea-children the dolphins play and jump in the air.The sunrise and the sunset always surpises you with a different story they tell you An excellent place to enjoy your vacation with the traditional kerela food. A complete privacy once you enter this place. Its a HOME away from HOME, and as they say nothing like HOME.
  • Sharath and the entire family made us feel very welcome. The house is very peaceful and set well back from the road.

  • Loved our stay here. A retreat from Kochi, close enough to walk to Fort Cochin. The driver, Das, was incredible. He helped us plan our stay and went out of his way to take care of us.

  • My son stayed Sharath family home. They are very kindly. Room is beautifl & clean. Thanks, See you,

  • An amazing place, very peaceful spent most of the time in the home stay itself.

    Akash2017-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • It was an absolute pleasure to stay here for 4 days. The place is picturesque, with the sound of the waves soothing you round the clock and the sea being your backyard. Since the moment I have gotten there, I haven't stopped sharing pictures of the place on ig. But apart from the pictures, everyone there would always greet you with a smile and are very cordial. They helped me with my backwater tour as well. And Aunty's cooking is yummy. It indeed is a home away from home. :)

  • Yes nice people, great location. Highly recommended.

    Mike2014-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Sarath and his family were the perfect hosts. Sarath did everything he could to make our stay a success from the beginning he organised our pick up from the airport and even booked our train tickets to Vakala. Overall our stay was excellent. Sarah's mothers home cooking was outstanding the best Indian food we have ever tasted. The rooms are very clean and the garden so beautiful and peaceful. Many thanks for our lovely stay!

    Nestled in the Nilgiri Mountains at 8,000ft, just below Doddabetta Peak, this self-catering apartment with a fully equipped kitchen has a master bedroom and a sleeping loft. Surrounded by reserve forest and tea plantations, the view is stunning.
    Just 7 kilometers outside of Ooty town, this property is close to all the major tourist highlights but is secluded and remote at the same time. Away from the hustle and bustle of Ooty town, Bilberry Cottage is a serene and peaceful retreat, overlooking tea estates, wild forest and mountain ridges. This is a mountain retreat, not a five star hotel. We have staff here during the day to support guests, but not at night. We have beautifully equipped kitchens so you can cook your own food, but we do not have a restaurant. We urge only resilient, nature loving, independent, resourceful, adventuresome people to book a holiday here. Its a wild and steep terrain, and at night you will not hear the noise of traffic, but rather the sound of wind in the trees, owls in the dark, rain on the roofs, bird and animal calls. This is disconcerting for many who are used to the sound of city life all around them. While the evenings may have firelight, candles and electricity, once the lights are out, it will be pitch dark all around. When skies are clear the stars and moon are perhaps the most beautiful you will ever see. Its something about being in the mountains 8,000 ft high, with no pollution covering the atmosphere. Other times of the year, especially in the monsoon, its just incredibly dark. City dwellers often find this unsettling. The mountains of Ooty are also very cool year round, especially at night. While the indoors are warm and cozy, mountain air outside is brisk! Staying at Stumpfields you'll find out quickly just how comfortable you are with nature, and just how dependent you are on technology for your peace of mind. For those who want complete luxury, room service, wifi, TV's, a restaurant, and 24 hour staff service we recommend you book a hotel in the town of Ooty. Please don't book unless you are ready for a challenge and an adventure. Come here ready to unplug from emails and the internet, TV's and movies, and try curling up by the wood stove with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Let your body and mind re-set and re-charge as you decompress from your hectic city schedule and let the nature around you remind you there is a different way to live.
    We live in the wilderness, completely secluded with no other houses around, except Stumpfields and Ivy. At the end of our drive, along a main road is a small village where the local tea-pickers reside. You can catch a glimpse of this village from the balcony of the cottage. We are in the middle of a totally undeveloped 10 acre piece of land that is surrounded by and overlooks government reserve forest. Our access to trails, extraordinary views, glimpses of wild animals and wide variety of birds in this high altitude rain forset and peace and solitude make our place unique among the overly commercialized, over crowded tourist hotels and inns in and around Ooty. We take pride in our efforts to protect the environment around our house. We keep our grounds and the surrounding forest and pastures around us clean with absolutely zero litter. We ask that you help us keep it pristine.
  • I had an amazing stay at Mala's place with my family. The house, the location and the view was perfect! We had some issues with car parking but that will be resolved soon as work for the same is going on. Overall I would highly recommend this place.

    Nimi2016-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place isn't built, it's crafted !!! We were at Bilberry cottage for three days and we just loved our stay. The place is beautifully constructed by Greg and Mala. They have given personal attention to build this place and it's reflected everywhere. Its a lovely family and they make you feel home. You have some of the amazing views of nilgiri hills right from the patio. Sunrise is treat to ur eyes. You can actually see the wonderful colors spread across the horizon and discover the first ray of morning sun that slowly proceeds across the hills. The golden sunlight in the morning is relaxing. They have pets...'Wassa' is very friendly. The horses are fun to see and we also helped mala feeding horses. Apart from hosting the place, Greg and Mala has a huge contribution to humanity. They have been conducting various social programs and their work is really appreciable. They are working to eliminate human trafficing, which is a major issue in India. Their work and thoughts radiate a kind of positivity that is felt in the stump fields. The home is crafted beautifully and its at par in elegance, but its also the other side, that is the commendable initiatives of Greg and Mala that brings positive vibes all around in the stump fields. We wish them all the best in their future endeavors. We would be happy to volunteer and contribute for the future social programs as well. Few thinks to consider: 1. Should go by four wheeler with good ground clearance. Although we were able to manage with Jupiter (Automatic scooter) I would suggest to avoid two wheeler. 2. Driving down to this place in the dark would be challenging. Recommended to reach there in day light. 3. Carry enough food n stuff so that you don't need to go out and get more time to spend there :)

    Harshal2016-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was by far the nicest place we stayed at during our many trips to India. Mala is a great host and was quick to reply our questions before our arrival. The view is spectacular. Especially during sunrise. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking to get away from the noise and pollution.

    Sean2016-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The property was even more beautiful than the pictures. I had a wonderful time at the Bilberry Cottage. If you are coming here to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy the beauty of nature then its the right place. Mala is a super host and would make you feel like home. She's the most amazing and helpful host I have met. Would definitely recommend this place to all my friends.

    Mamta2016-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Quaint and charming cottage. Mala helped us get our bearings and suggested some wonderful treks. We didn't spend much time indoors. I think it's a great getaway for couples or solo travellers as well. She did share with us some of her lovely home baked bread which I'd recommend. A relaxing home away from home!

    fareed2016-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • It's a really nice place to get away. Absolutely loved it. Weekend or weekday still peacful. Will definitely return. One suggestion for travellers. It's better to plan what you would require and then get there. As there are no close by shops, so you don't have to waste a whole lot of time on the road.

    Sesha2016-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • amazing place, nice host and beautiful (URL HIDDEN) else to ask for...

    Rajesh2016-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Yes Mala was a warm hostess to say the least. The cottage was obviously fully equipped and we had no issues finding it. In fact we loved the trek up till their house. It was indeed exhilarating! In short everything about the stay was perfect. It was just like staying in our house and doing what we want to do. We would definitely be recommending the place to our friends and also coming back!

The best part of the place is the awesome view from the balcony.. the food was brilliant.. last but not the least Manoj the caretaker n manager was very helpful.. he made sure all our needs were taken care of..overall a great experience!

    Amrita2016-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Heavenly views and an incredible balcony. Loved every minute of our stay here.

    Vinod2017-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place is awesome at the foot hills of chembra peak. Spectacular views of the mountain range. The place is secluded and offers a chance to be close to nature. Audi works best if you have own vehicle. However, you can also get to the place using an auto rickshaw. Breakfast was superb. Manoj the caretaker really went all out with the Kerala cuisine!! Loved it. If you want a secluded place close to nature with excellent views, this is the place indeed!

    Ashwin2016-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • The Jackfruit Tree is definitely the perfect stay in Wayanad. Ever since i made my booking, i was in touch with the host Aparna who helped me with all my questions regarding sight seeing, etc. She was very approachable. The stay was very comfortable, the view from our room was fantastic. The villa is at the foothill of Chembra Peak and the balcony gives a refreshing view of waterfall flanked by a Tea Garden and hills on other side. Wash rooms were clean. Breakfast was good too. Our caretaker Manoj was extremely caring (CARE taker). He arranged delicious vegetarian dinner for us. He also arranged Bon Fire. In fact, we wanted to check out early morning at 4 and the host Prasad was there to see us off that early. They made us feel at home. I believe that no one should think twice before considering this place. Just go for it. P.S. I went with family.

    Anchal2016-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Pristine nature. Lends a meaning to 'God's own country'. Excellent hosts. The food was delicious and the hospitality outstanding.

    Gokul2017-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • Living in the Jackfruit Tree Villa at Wayanad turned out to be an unforgettable experience for my entire family. The view of the mighty Chembra calms your mind, makes you feel so close to nature and fills you with a certain sense of tranquility and peace. Looking at the misty mountains early in the morning helped me reflect, meditate and ease away a lot of tensions that had accumulated over the course of everyday life. And all this happened despite travelling with a toddler, thanks to Prasad and the caretaker, Manoj. Both of them are very warm and pleasant people, who made my family feel completely at ease and also ensured that we had our privacy as a family. I enjoyed the conversations with Prasad and I'm particularly thankful to Manoj for making accommodations for my little girl, such as cooking a different type of rice for her and making her food she could have during our journey back. It was heartening to see her eat her meals well just as though we were at home. In short, the view, the location and the people make the Jackfruit tree Villa a wonderful place to stay in Wayanad. Though we didn’t visit much of Wayanad, the stay here made up for all that. Keep up the good work! I wish everyone at Jackfruit Villa all the very best!

    Manjima2016-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • The enchanting views made my stay very memorable. Waking up to the sun rising beyond the mountains is something I'll never forget. The hosts were extremely friendly and accommodative to every request I made. Overall an excellent experience, and I'd highly recommend it!

    Ranjani2016-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing and a total refreshing experience would love to come again and again. Prasad & Aparna have been a great host taking care of every single thing on top of that the food was homely.

To make the stay interesting we can arrange for local sight seeing. As far as sporting activities we can arrange fo Horse-riding classes & Kayaking There is an Ayurvedic wellness center and an Ayurvedic college in the neighbourhood where you get the best of ayurvedic massages and treatment.
  • Hi, A warm welcome was received from Sanjay. A very good house and in fact it is amidst nature. We loved the stay and children also enjoyed the bunk bed concept. Lovely kitchen and special thanks to Manager Sudarshan for helping us get things for kitchen. Just a small suggestion from my side is, as we normally book for Bed and Breakfast, it would be good if breakfast is included in the stay (of course a beautiful kitchen is provided for us to cook self). Rest is the best, assured :)

    deepthi2016-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • Was a wonderful stay and very scenic! Sanjay is a great host and his staff were very helpful to get us the best from town. Amazing place and we very much enjoyed the bonfire and the serenity of the place. Highly recommended for anyone who would like to relax and for a great weekend getaway.

    Suhas2015-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely farm house in a quaint setting very close to the Ayurveda Hospital and can rick it to the foothills of Chamundi Hills. Spacious and airly. Manicured gardens with lush trees providing peekaboo views of the horizon.

    Dominic 2016-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • - Wonderful, spacious, green - Location is inside the outskirts, very convenient for local sightseeing yet secluded - Kids loved the bunk bed design - Sanjay is a great host- helps with places to eat, pray, love and some Mysur history - Mosquitoes were a big concern for us before we got there but we were surprised to find close to none - Great Great Great value for money - Will return for a longer stay

    Kartik2016-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • I must say, this was my most awesome home-stay experience so far !!!! This property is really beautiful, and peaceful. Mini garden and nie landscaping is perfect for morning walks. This property was spacious, facilities in house were as described and were sufficient for a family. Our host, Mr. Sanjay and his support staff, were very warm and welcoming. It is truly a ' Nandanvana'. Loved it !!!

    Omkar2014-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sanjay was a fantastic host.. My family and I checked in for a day on April 10. We took up the 3 bedrooms of the villa listed.... The residence was beautiful and the description and facilities were exactly as described... Rooms clean... Sheets clean... Spacious place.. Beautifully landscaped garden .. Even Sudarshan the support staff was polite and helfpful.. My family enjoyed the place and our only regret was our stay was short and we didn't get a proper chance to explore the entire property..

    Sharlon2015-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • I traveled during the Christmas vacation with my extended family of 9 people and we had a great time at Nandanavana. The Villa is everything that you get to see in the photos, and more! The location is perfect - it is at the outskirts of the city, well away from traffic and street noise, but just ~2km (3 - 5 mins by car) away from restaurants, supermarkets and grocery stores. The ambiance within the villa is serene - surrounded by a quaint garden and lawns, with a fantastic Tennis clay court and a handy gym + Table Tennis available for our exclusive use. The kitchen is fully equipped and functional - we were pleasantly surprised to find even a Coffee Filter, rolling pin and Pressure Cooker - if you are the kind that wants to try a cookout, you will not find anything lacking. Sanjay is a genial host, who is always around to help you, but stays completely in the background to let you enjoy the place with your family or friends. It was a pleasure getting to know Sanjay as a fellow human being - I guess that is one of the perks of booking homestays through Airbnb! He was also able to give us some tips on what to see around in Mysore...however, we were so happy just lazing around in the villa that we hardly ventured out. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is traveling to Mysore in a group. I am eager to return the next time I make some plans around Mysore.

    Chetan2014-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Right from the time I called up Sanjay to enquire about his address, we struck a chord between us. It was very nice of SAnjay to come down couple of km to escort us to his place. The welcome was very cordial. The moment Sanjay came to know that we had missed our lunch he delighfully arranged for a dozen of bananas from his own orchard. He guided us through all the itenery for local sightseeing and also wonderful restaurants in Mysore which made our stay more memorable. Once we even toubled him at odd hours duing the night when we had almost lost our way to his place. Cheerful as ever Sanjay made us feel comfortable as guided us back to his place. Overall the stay was wonderful . Nice villa and wonderful surrounding environment. My family too enjoyed the stay and we look forward to visiting the place again.

    Our lovingly restored heritage home on the outskirts of Madikeri, lies nestled in twelve acres of secluded lush green forest and overlooks spectacular uninterrupted views of rolling hills and valleys. The bedrooms, breathtaking sit-out & garden present an unmatched magical panorama of hill ranges & valleys. IMPORTANT We give the whole bungalow to ONLY one group at a time. You do not share Tanglewoods with other guests.
    This bungalow provides an incredible combination - the conveniences of town yet in the seclusion of verdant forests. There is a picnic perfect garden offering breathtaking vistas of valley and hill ranges. There is generator back up facility to ensure uninterrupted power supply.
    Centrally located - just a km from General Thimmaiah statue in Madikeri.
  • This review won't be different than others. As expected, stay was fantastic. We were a group of 7 and there for 1 night. I travelled with elderly people and great thing was when they told me 'Next time we will come here for atleast 2 nights' :) This speaks a lot about the property, location, service and of course delicious breakfast :) Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

    Badal2016-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Given the wonderful reviews for the place, we had great expectations. And we were not disappointed. The house was amazing! The moment we entered the house we decided that we are not going to step out until the checkout time. And Debbie and her crew have maintained it beautifully. cozy nooks have been created at all places with thoughtful arrangements of lamps, various interesting books. Hot water is available 24/7. The bedding was clean and comfortable, with ample warm quilts provided. The view from the closed terrace / viewing deck was the highlight of our trip. Sanjay, the caretaker, is ever helpful and obliges the requests of the visitors to fetch supplies from the market. Can't wait to come back again!

    Srinidhi2016-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • If it wasn't for Debbie's Tanglewoods, Coorg would have been a lost cause. It was raining day in and day out when we arrived. Hence, most of our time was spent in the serenity of tanglewoods. And we definitely couldn't ask for anything better. Sanjay is a great guy and he helped us throughout the stay, guiding us for directions and getting us the best cabbies available. The food was delicious and the place was super clean. I am definitely going again. A big thumps up!

    Aprajita2016-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Tanglewoods is a gem nestled up in the hills of Madikeri. Our group of 8 friends had a wonderful time during our stay there. The rooms are well furnished with comfortable beds and blankets. The toilets were clean and there seemed to be enough hot water for all of us to enjoy our baths in the cold and misty weather. Special mention for Sanjay, the helper, who looked so well after us. He was always there, ready for us to be able to order meals from one of the many restaurants in the area. Sanjay also cooked up some delicious breakfasts and there was always more than enough breakfast. Not to mention the countless times we asked him for more coffee/ tea... :) Sanjay also gave us great directions for places to see in the area. The common area on the first level was where our group spent most of our time whilst at Tanglewoods. The view from the deck is simply superb. Just like a painting you wish you had in your living/ bedroom. Thanks to Debbie for sharing this beautiful property with us! Best, Prannay

    Prannay2016-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • one of the best property in Coorg, caretaker is cooperative, view is asmazing, overall aswm experience.

  • If you want a quiet and peaceful place, a home away from home, where you can get away from everything, a place with beautiful panoramic vistas of a gorgeous valley bathed in a thin sheen of mist/cloud, where you can a soulful conversation with your fellow companions on any topic under the sky or just ponder about life while sipping endless cups of tea or coffee provided by Sanjay, the resident Wodehousian Jeeves / Chef Anatole (more about him later), and/ or if you are more inclined to just visit nearby places around Madikeri without too much of a detour, then this is the place. Sanjay, the resident caretaker is great asset - he can whip out sumptuous mouth watering breakfasts/lunches or dinners that are always a treat and cups of spicy tea or coffee at any time that you desire. Really enjoyed the stay here and felt rested and rejuvenated. Highly recommend it.

    Srinivasan2017-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • During rains better to stay indoors and enjoy the picturesque vicinity from the big balcony ... For walk there is no option except for a small way downhill for few meters ... many of places like aby falls temples nearby ... for tala kavery plan it first in the day as it is around 35 km..from here..elephant camp is also not much far. Don't forget to ask Sanjay to cook the local coconut vegetable I guess beet root

A walk through our village will allow you to experience how exactly the local people are engaged in their daily activities and you will be meeting a lot of friendly people. Kids may be asking you for pens(for writing) or chocolates.
  • I've stood in the farm house with my husband for two nights. The place is very nice, but is a litle difficult to find the first time, anyway once you know where it is you can go easily to the railway station if you want to visit Kochi or Allepey. Manu and the rest of the people are very kind. The meals were delicious and in great quantity. The room was very clean and comfortable. We will recomend this place.

    Yolanda2016-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Merveilleux hâvre de paix pour se ressourcer et se reposer. Logement très propre, propriétaire accueillant et disponible. Merci Manu !

    Claude2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place is really quiet and beautiful! It's great for meditating. You could see all kind of things there. I had such wonderful time at my stay! Manu is the most friendly host I met so far at airbnb. I had a great time with his family too. I strongly recommend the place for whoever is looking for a quiet mind!

    Bedour2017-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most wonderful time at Backwater Farmhouse. The setting is beautiful, the food great, and Manu and his family very hospitable. Manu went out of his way to make Nina's birthday memorable with cake, music and laser lights to boot! We highly recommend a stay here.

    Sara2015-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place. Other than at mealtime, we just sat on veranda for first two days of stay. The view was amazing. Watching the birds, the fishermen, people commuting by boat kept us transfixed. Manu was perfect host as was his entire family. Never intrusive but always welcoming and supportive in any way necessary. Loved the meals! Enjoyed company of other guests. You can choose privacy if you prefer. Use of canoe was fantastic! Great room! Thank you Manu. We were sorry to leave and look forward to returning.

  • Manu and his family were very supportive in getting me information to where I needed to go and providing transportation was not a problem ... at all. This family made and family run resort is very serene, clean, full of love and everyone is happy. My room was very clean. The bathroom and TOILET! was super clean! Lots of adventure (if you're looking for that). Lots of serenity of you're looking for that.

  • This backwater home is a dream. Take the canoe out early morning and explore this beautiful slice of heaven. Everything about it was perfect. I highly recommend staying here!

  • Manu and the family were very welcoming and helpful. Do not be put off by the approach to the property. The house itself has some lovely rooms and a good outlook. Meals are taken communally which we enjoyed. Some of the guests were taking ayudervic treatments at a local clinic. It is a place to relax for a few days rather than rush around doing activities although we had canoe rides and a houseboat is available for rent. There are bicycles to hire and Manu will organise an auto-rickshaw if you want. There is some noise from the temple opposite and some building work being done on another part of the site. A good experience for our last stop in Kerala.

  • Excellent place! Sangeetha was quick replying to messages and Prakash went above and beyond and even entertained out 14-month old while we ate his delicious dinner. We hope to come back!

    Anita2017-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing house and stay! The pictures really do not do it justice it is even more incredible in real life. Prakash was so helpful and his food was so good. He went out to get us dinner with whatever type of dish we wanted to try and went above and beyond helping us. We organised a house boat out for the day with him too which I would definitely recommend if you are choosing to stay here and want to go out during the day. The house is so beautiful and everything you want sorting is possible here from food to getting dinner and organising day trips and tuk tuks to get money out etc. Sunrise is definitely worth getting up for too here. Will be recommending this to everyone , thanks so much again Laura

  • A quite, immaculately clean home, with gorgeous views and lovely house staff. The house itself is filled with art and is architecturally very interesting with the number of sky openings which brings the rains inside the house! Fresh flowers brought a lovely touch and hospitality of house staff (and their cooking) couldn't be faulted. There will be a real attention to detail during your stay which you will note. The only reason why i couldn't give 5 stars is to do with the internet access which, I know might sound petty, but, was important to us. In total we had connection for a few hours on the second night of our stay, with the connection being off the rest of the time. Reading through the guest book a number of guests had the same issues with no connection (no fault of Sangeetha we know). If you come prepared for no connection, you might be fine or more robust than us, It just so happened that we were quite reliant on it at the time to sort our travel plans. So in all; lovely home, lovely staff, great communication, beautiful views come prepared for no wifi and you will have a 5 star experience.

  • We booked this place through airbnb and we got much more than what we expected. The pics on airbnb are not as good as the place itself. The location is awesome on the lake. Every furniture fixture has been carefully thought off and meets the need of the guests. The manager cum chef Prakash is simply awesome. He takes a very good care of the guests and make real delicious food. We had a great experience and would love to visit again.

    Sumit2017-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Redefining airbnb, Sangeetha's home finds genius balance between modern architecture and Indian heritage. Breakfast spoils you with Vembanad Lake (see Alleppey) and Pathiramanal (an uninhabited, bird sanctuary island) views. If you rise early enough, you can see the local fishermen depart via a channel adjacent the property; and if you're super lucky like I was, you may even be treated to a visit from the three local seals. In the afternoon, the houseboats of Alleppey (Allaphuza) float on by. The property itself is home to a garden paradise that many birds and butterflies adore. Reliable, fast air-conditioning brings modern comfort for good night's rest. Your stay is complimented with in-house guest Manager and Chef, Prakesh - who will offer to buy from the market whatever you would like to eat. His cooking is amazing. I was even treated to a visit to a local fisherman's house, where I selected the fish and prawn (crayfish); that Prakesh then proceeded to cook up for dinner. Prakesh is very kind, patient and professional with a wonderful sense of humour, who will organise for you any local sightseeing you may wish to do and any transport you may need (if you are female, be sure to pack appropriate clothing to respect local culture, especially if you have any intention of visiting local temples). I wish I had planned to stay longer. I will most definitely be returning next year!

    Cassandra2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at this house was fantastic and relaxing. The house is tastefully decorated, open and has plenty of natural light. We visited during the monsoons and got to enjoy the rain falling in the little courtyards of the house. The property is right on Vembanad lake, and you can sit on the back porch and watch the fishing and tourist boats pass by. The house also has a large garden and you get the feeling of being more connected with nature. The guest manager, Prakash, is extremely helpful, and the food he cooked was delicious and homely. A couple words of warning: City folk should remember to take some insect/mosquito repellant since there are quite a number of creepy crawlies around. Carry a portable charger for your phone because the area that this house is in seems to be experience occasional power cuts.

    Mistletoe Munnar is a boutique, premium home stay having five well furnished rooms with private balcony; overlooking the magnificent Kanan Devan Hills of Munnar; having a traditional clay oven cafe, a common living with library and a dining area.
    Our neighborhood is quiet, and there are no commercial buildings and activities near by, all our neighbors are spice farmers having small plots of land and cultivate cardamom, black pepper, cocoa, coffee and several other spices and fruits. The night life gets into sleepy mode along with birds and to be awakened by them early.
  • I had a really incredible two-night stay at Misteltoe. Jo's place has everything you can ask for: mountainous and peaceful views, clean and luxurious rooms and bathrooms, and some of the best food I had in all of India. Jo is a truly exceptional host, and just a really kind and genuine person -- it was a pleasure to meet him and his family. Jo lead me on a couple of nearby walks, as well as arranged a jeep for a late-night elephant safari! I spent about three weeks traveling in India and this stay was undoubtedly one of the biggest highlights of my trip. I highly recommend!

    Seth2016-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed two nights at Jo's place and easily could have stayed happily longer. The view from the room was phenomenal and the food was excellent! Jo greeted us with a warm welcome and was friendly and available when we had questions or needed advice or recommendations. Our room was closest to the road so there was some road noise, but it's India and there is always noise! All in all a very wonderful experience.

    Amanda2017-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful Christmas with Johnson and his family. His home is absolutely lovely - an amazing view and very comfortable. The food was the best part though, the best on my trip to Kerala.

    Shahed2015-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jo et toute sa famille sont formidables, d'une extrême gentillesse! Tout était parfait et nous nous sommes senti tout de suite à l'aise! La maison est décorée avec beaucoup de goût! Les chambres sont superbes (un peu petite pour 3 personnes) et la vue magnifique! Nous avons beaucoup apprécié toutes les petites attentions à notre arrivée et départ (encore merci pour les cadeaux!!), les petits savons dans la salle de bain qui sentent divinement bons, les repas exceptionnels (de loin les meilleurs de notre séjour dans le Tamil Nadu et Kerala et à petit prix!!!) merci au cuisinier!!, les discussions avec Jo, .... Réserver sans hésiter, vous ne serez pas déçus!!

    Anne-Claire2016-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Joe and his family were the perfect homestay hosts. The food was great, he organized a full day tour of the Munnar area for us, and he also took us on a few other local outings that would not have been possible at a more impersonal homestay or hotel. We were extremely happy we chose to stay here.

    Drew2016-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • It was a pleasure being there .. Our stay is quite short but still a memorable one. The house is so clean and very well maintained.. Food was so delicious .. Hosts was so helpful in terms of guidance. Thanks n looking forward to stay again.

    Gokulraj2017-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Jo is an incredible host. The property is very cosy and easy to locate. The host stays with his family and has 2 staff members also to help. The communication was very prompt and crisp. Felt welcome as soon as we arrived. Food was great and had so many conversations during the 1 night stay. Will surely recommend this place to every1 coming to Munnar. Definitely a 5 Star Airbnb exp

    Anubhav2016-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Our first visit to Kerala and specifically Munnar, while we're deliberately our options of putting up in a hotel or being home guests at a homestay. We sure don't regret choosing Mistletoe over a concrete resort. The beauty of the homestay is the ambience that is effortlessly created by the host and his team. A special mention with respect to the food - which is cooked by Jo's family, adds to the overall experience. It is rather impressive to know a hotelier manages to retain the charm of a beautiful house and provides perfect hotel-like service. Mistletoe adds to the beauty that is Munnar :)

    Cloudsland is the ideal place for those wishing to spend their holidays to experience a homestay in Munnar.
  • Munnar as a hill station is crazy crowded. While looking for accommodations, we came across Clouds Land and instantly liked the place based on location and reviews. But when we actually reached there, the place was even better. Its located next to a beautiful Tea Estate, away from the maddening crowds of Munnar. The rooms are spacious, clean and beautiful with open balconies. You can hear birds chirping all day and if lucky can see a Barking Deer too (we saw it). The hosts are awesome as well. Manu, right from our arrival was welcoming and always had a smile on his face. He helped us plan our Munnar trip. We had a great time interacting with Manu and his brother. The food is awesome as well. Some lovely tea and yummy breakfast is something one should not miss at Clouds Land. In all, if you really love to travel and see the beauty of a place and want to be away from the usual crowd, Clouds Land is the place to be. Don't think twice before making this you stay at Munnar :)

    Shraddha2016-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Clouds Land with Manu and Jinju was wonderful. The apartments are excellent, spacious, nicely furnished and immaculately clean. The location (which is 8km out of Munnar) is beautiful and peaceful. Manu is a brilliant host, so friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food is wonderful, we had dinner in the first night and it was so good we ate in every night. We enjoyed Boney M music and the light show at dinner, and the Purple Sunbird nesting above the table. An absolutely top notch and unforgettable stay. We can't recommend it too highly.

    Sandra And Jeremy2015-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • The host canceled this reservation 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • Wonderful place :-)

    Charles-simon2017-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great if you are looking for a secluded and relaxed place to stay away from Munnar's tourist and vehicle noise. The place is simple and authentic and ofcourse as other reviewers have attested, both Manu, Binu and helper Suresh were very friendly and accommodating.

    Sireesha2016-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had an excellent time. The rooms were neat, the beds were comfortable and the view from the balcony was excellent. Birds, flowers and greenery were in abundance during our stay in January. The place is located within a beautiful tea estate, fifteen minutes drive from Munnar town. It is a bit difficult to locate, but the hosts take care to be in touch and guide you from the nearest landmark. Warm water, WiFi, room service and other amenities are available. There are lots of repeat visitors.

    vinod2016-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • we spent to lovely days at clouds land. Manu and his brother are very helpful and know a lot about the area. they are great cooks and we enjoyed the best dinners in the middle of the forest. thanks for a lovely time!

    Jakob2016-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Manu's in Munnar. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The terrace looked out into the trees and we were immersed in nature. Manu and his brother were extremely welcoming and always smiling. They cooked us delicious breakfasts and dinners and were full of interest for their surroundings and guests. All their prices were really reasonable and we would definitely recommend them.

    A Family running home stay located in a quite village between Alleppey & Cochin.You can experience the beauty& the Tranquility of the Backwaters at its best just by sitting in front of our room's porch with a spectacular view!
    Only a step away from the river to this unique cottage ! You will have an amazing view and comfort to enjoy the backwaters and the nature!
    Its a perfect place for relaxing! Our rooms are facing to a quite and beautiful lake. We arrange a 2 hours boat trip on a small non motorized shaded boat to see the backwaters. While on the boat, you can enjoy the quite backwaters,fish farms,daily life of the people etc. We highly recommend you to bring your binoculars if you love bird watching , you will be seeing a wide variety of birds like kingfishers,Brahmini kite,fish eagles , Herons, Egrets, Cormorants,Drongo,Magpie Robin, parakeets and many more. A walk through our village will allow you to experience how exactly the local people are engaged in their daily activities and you will be meeting a lot of friendly people. Kids may be asking you for pens(for writing) or chocolates.
  • Manu and people were amazing ! Manu guided us well and he is very helpful throughout our stay.The room looks exactly like in photos and it was pure magical.Boatman is very friendly and you will get canoe ride at the backwater.Food is delicious and rooms are very romantic. Stay is highly Recommended .A blissful NATURE stay.

    Vinoth2016-08-30T00:00:00Z

    Rahul2016-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. Just wow. This is one of the easiest reviews to do as the place is beautiful, better than the photos, the location is great and Manu is a wonderful host. It's in between Alleppey and Kochi and making the day trip to either is good but having this place to come back to is wonderful. The room is full of personal touches, overlooking the river. You can watch the birds from the shaded terrace and take the canoe to the local shops. We ate outside in the evenings , making friends with other guests. A truly magical few days.

    amy2017-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Manu was a great host! The room matched everything in the description given and is the perfect location for wanting to relax. The Backwaters are especially worth viewing. Would definitely recommend to others travelling Kerala/southern India! Thanks Manu!

    Gary2016-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Un lugar imperdible al viajar a Kerala. Servicio y comunicación muy buenos a cargo de su anfitrión Manu que estuvo pendiente desde el primer momento de que todo fuera perfecto. We have felt like home and highly recommend his place to everybody to enjoy a peaceful place to see the backwaters, enjoy a great massage and try the wonderful keralan food his family prepare everyday. Manu thanks for everything, hope to meet you again :) Pablo and Sandra

    Alexandra2016-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Manu will make you feel welcomed no matter what time of the day you come. This would be probably the best spot if you are looking to get away from the city, probably 1 hour away from Ft. Kochi. The Corner Room is has the best view out of the whole complex in my opinion, you are able to see the river early in the morning to dawn from your porch. If you are looking to work on laptop through Wi-Fi, then this place maybe not for you. Light internet use, definitely good for email checking. Stay at this place, wont regret it!

    Sunny2017-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • There's nothing that hasn't been said before. I loved the place. It's just like described. If you want to find a peaceful and quiet place with a beautiful scenery and a very welcoming and caring host, stay here. Thank you for everything, Manu!

    Anna-Theresa 2017-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great holiday. Manu was the perfect host and we really enjoyed our stay with him. He looked after us so well, letting us use the family fridge, loaning us a kettle, extension cable and even a bottle opener and not forgetting the canoe! The ladies served excellent food which we thoroughly enjoyed. Definitely recommend Manu's place if you want a relaxing holiday with no commercialism in a serene setting.

    Vaishnavi estate is a perfect retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nestled amongst the lush greenery of the Western Ghats in Coorg, our coffee estate is a perfect retreat for the nature lover and anyone who needs a break from their monotonous life of the city. It is about 10kms from the nearest town (Virajpet), so its ideal for a getaway and relaxation. Even if you are the touristy type - the place is anywhere from 30 - 70 mins to Madikeri, Golden Temple, Talacauvery, etc
    Overlooking coffee plantations as far your eye goes, the wooden cottage is chipped out with relaxation and tranquility. This space can accommodate 4 people easily, both the rooms have attached bathroom. (5th /6thperson - your call!) It has a fine swing for you to enjoy your mornings and evenings. Our estate blossoms are a great attraction to a variety of birds. The jostling and competition for the nectar from these flowers is a sight to remember. It’s a treat for bird lovers to sip a cup of our plantation coffee and listen to their sweet melody. Ideal for a group of happiness seekers who like to spend time with nature and relax. Have recently increased the max number of guests to 6 as we had a lot of enquiries for this. Please note - this property has 2 rooms with queen sized beds. Guests have adjusted in the past either on the beds itself or with extra mattress (provided on request depending on size of group).
    Far (15 mins) from the town but "closer" to Igguthappa temple and Thandiyandamol peak. Also the famous Chelavara falls are close by (relatively speaking). Coming to Coorg itself might have been a distance for you - so dont worry about short drives here and there.
  • Good place with great hospitality. The location is a little isolated. But a great experience overall.

    Pranjal2017-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • We are a family of 5 adults and 2 kids from Hyderabad and we stayed for 3 nights in the estate. Located in the picturesque surroundings of the western ghats and in the midst of coffee plantations the estate is beautifully furnished. The rooms are spacious, neat and clean. If you want to have a break from the hustle bustles of city, Mridul's place is the perfect venue. We had a wonderful time enjoying the nature and the early mornings were so refreshing. The care taker Shanti is extremely polite and courteous and the cook Gopi served us some delicious vegetarian food. All in all we had a memorable stay in the estate and would cherish the experience for a long time and would certainly recommend this place to all those who want to enjoy a leisure vacation away from city. All though the estate is about 10km from Virajpet, we had no difficulty in spotting the location, thanks to Mridul's accurate directions. Thanks Mridul and Nandini for playing a perfect host.

    Praveen2017-04-20T00:00:00Z

  • Great place for a quiet getaway, commune with nature. Spectacular greenery all around and a serene environment. It was nice to spend hours on the deck enjoying the view and unwinding. The home made food was good and served timely.

    Srivats2016-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were warm and the whole experience was very pleasant.

    Madana Kumar2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • The images on the listing do not justify the beauty of the estate! The sitout area is so thoughtfully built that you can see sun rising above from behind the coffee plantations and sinking down later in the day behind the hills! - Priceless The sky in the night flaunts all of the stars making you realize they aren't that far after all! There are a couple of corners in the estate where you can lay your back and feel peaceful. - again Priceless If all you need for your next vacation is unplugging yourself and waking your innerself up, this is exactly where you should go.

    Prudhvi2016-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place was so lovely! Quiet and beautiful, surrounded by nature. We stayed the night and explored local Coorg attractions. Was a wonderful getaway from the city. Mridhul's parents are extremely hospitable and nice. Mridhul was available and communicative prior to our stay, he arranged for us to have dinner and gave clear and precise directions to the estate.

    Bretton2016-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • The place is fantastic, secluded, clean with accurate description of the location. The host and the maid for help were friendly accommodating and made us feel comfortable. However since there is no sign boards in the area in general it was a little hard to find the place initially. Apart from that, everything was perfect!

The villa is 200 meters away from the bed and breakfast facility. Natureroots villa comes with a Kitchen where you could do some basic cooking (we have a toaster, kettle, fridge and induction cooker).

  • Natureroots Villa, located in the kunjithanny hilly area below Munnar is a tranquil property with excellent amenities and a very helpful host. Vimal's mother has been accommodative of all our requests and made us feel comfortable in the villa. Would recommend this villa to anyone traveling to Munnar, especially those that travel as a group (4 to 5 Max ). Do ensure that you have travel arrangements done, as the place is disconnected and has no means of public transport. However, Vimal has helped us in finding travel arrangement and the driver (his uncle) was more than helpful in transporting us in and around Munnar. Overall a great private villa!

    Pradeep2015-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • You get here, what you expect in place like Munnar, amidst nature quiet, pleasant. Vimal place was clean, comfortable,. Thanks to aunty, Vimal's Mom cooked awesome food for us. It was nice trip

    Kumar2016-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first trip to Munnar and oh boy! we couldn't have made a better choice than Natureroots. Away from the hustle bustle of the main town (which is just 12 kms away), we enjoyed our quiet space here at this cottage. The place was super clean and we were provided with anything that we could have needed like a fridge, induction plate, utensils and clean linen and towels. Also, since Munnar doesnt have many eating options, most of our meals were cooked by Vimal's mum and we did not regret it one bit. She cooks even the simplest of things like dal and rice brilliantly. We had a wonderful stay here and would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quiet and peaceful holiday.

    himanshi2015-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • Vimal's place was really lovely. Although some distance from the main town of Munnar, we enjoyed the stay thoroughly. Vimal's mom was extremely hospitable and the food they provided us was nothing short of delicious! The room was clean and there was no hassle as such. Would recommend this to everyone!

    Chetan2015-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Finding Vimal's place was like coming across a hidden gem in this lovely region of Kerala. The location is perfect for anyone looking to experience Munnar but not necessarily stay in the hectic town center. Pair that with Vimal's Mum's excellent cooking and his Uncle Joseph being our personal driver during our stay we couldn't have asked for anything more.

    Kelly2016-11-26T00:00:00Z

  • We stayed at Morley's place for a day, and really wished we had planned to stay further. The location is so beautiful and scenic, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, perfect for a quiet getaway. The place is well-maintained, neat and clean, and offers spectacular views of tea estates, and cardamom plantations. The caretaker, Muthu, does an excellent job, prepares delicious meals on request, takes good care of your needs. I would definitely recommend staying at Morley's if you are looking for a peaceful, undisturbed vacation away from the city. It is certainly a little far from Thekkady, but its worth the experience. The owner, Mr. Philip was very helpful in guiding us to the place, and was in constant touch, very thankful to him. P.S. Few suggestions; please include an exhaust fan in the washrooms, also a wiper in each.

  • This place is just AMAZING.. Met every requirement we had! We had our best new year @ Tiger woods & never felt short of anything! Totally appreciate Philip & co for their amazing hospitality and service!

  • A PERFECT place to stay for family members. You get what you expect.

    Kowshik2017-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • The description is exceptionally accurate. It is a remote place which would require a 10 to 15 minutes walk downhill or calling for an auto to get to the nearby town. However, this is one of the best reasons why you should book this place. It's laid-back and sits comfortably in between great surroundings. The view is amazing and very addictive; you can hear the birds sing and the river flow and it really makes your day. If you'd like to visit the periyar wildlife sanctuary, make it a day-trip and plan in advance. Philip himself is very nice and interesting and if you are someone who prefers to interact with the host, as we were, you'll hear some great stories. The resident help Muthu is very responsive and courteous. Both of them also always made sure to ask us if we need something before going to the nearby town which we thought was very nice of them. You can order for food from a restaurant nearby and they deliver it at the doorstep for a decent delivery charge added to the bill. I'd definitely recommend the place if you want to get away from the hassle of a city and want to spend time in a hide away home.

  • The house is in a beautiful location on a plantation and is very peaceful. It is simply furnished. Philip was always very prompt in responding to us and helping with travel arrangements and it was nice to meet him and his family. Muthu was welcoming and helpful and his wife is an excellent cook and prepared meals for us as required, which we all appreciated. We used the house as a base from which to visit the Periyar Tiger Reserve and had a wonderful day there bamboo rafting.

    Bridget2015-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Morley's Place was the perfect place for us to end a month long trip around Kerala. Set on the side of a hill surrounded by tea and cardamom bushes, from the shaded terrace the view is down a river valley with a backdrop of layers of tea clad hills disappearing into the mists. We were looked after by Mathu the caretaker who was discreet yet always on hand. Mathu cooked and served us some very good meals, excellent chai and cool lemon juice. He also lead us on a walk through the cardamom plantation to the top of the hill. Our hosts Philip and his wife Minnie could not have been more warm, welcoming and helpful. They helped us to plan a programme of activities in the nearby wildlife reserve and arranged for a jeep to drive us around. For anyone looking for a peaceful retreat Morley' s Place is just right.

    Nicky & John2016-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • I had almost decided not to write a review for Morley's place, so that I could do my bit to keep this place a secret. But then I realised that the world does need to experience such beauty and joy. We were a family of 6 covering the entire age spectrum, and every one of us enjoyed this place. Getting there is pretty simple, except for the last 1 km. If your idea of a vacation is to pick up a book and a curl up with a cuppa, this is place for you. However, this place has something for everybody. This place is a photographer's delight, especially the view from the porch which is breathtaking. A short trek will lead you to the Periyar river, where you can take a dip. You can go for a long walk and still not see a soul, if solitude is what you are seeking. Morley's place has excellent caretakers in Muthu and Devika, and Philip is just a call away. They make sure you feel right at home. I'm sure I will come back here. The world needs such places.

  • Sajan is a terrific host in an amazing location. The photos don't do this place justice. Absolutely recommend staying here! The breakfast was delicious, the rooms were beautiful. As far as accessibility, the whole wayanad district is all around and very close. We were fortunate enough to be able to meet with Sajan on a couple occasions, and he was super helpful for recommendations and plans.

    Zeeshan2015-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good stay at Sajan's place. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Although Sajan wasn't there he made sure we faced no inconvenience. The caretaker was quite helpful and Sajan himself was constantly in touch through phone. He helped us in planning our itinerary in Wayanad. He also arranged a bike for the local travel and a bonfire on our request. Being on the main road, a little traffic noise could be heard at times. But then the location has it's own perquisites, especially in terms of convenience.

    NEERAJ2016-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place is good for short stay. Somehow I felt that our expense didn't get translated to the service we were expecting. It felt a bit exorbitant to me. The bathrooms were small with no shower and rooms were having the odor untill we opened the windows for ventilation. However, Sujan was very helpful to make our stay pleasant.

    Amrit2017-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Sajan is a gem of a person. He called me as soon as the booking was confirmed to enquire about my plans. He came to pick us up from the bus drop off point and and took complete care that we had a very comfortable and memorable stay. This villa is on the main road and so strategically placed that it is so easily accessible via public transport. We were welcomed with hot tea and a warm smile by the staff. The breakfast was so delicious, we stuffed ourselves and were not hungry till lunch. Sajan helped us plan our sight seeing and arranged a cab for the same. Within a day we could comfortably visit Banasura Dam in the morning, Kuruva islands in afternoon(with a perfect home lunch) and Thirunelli temple in the evening. The Villa has 3 spacious bedrooms,a kitchen, a big hall and really spacious, clean bathroom. If you visit, pick up the larger bedroom on the first floor as it has good big balcony as we enjoyed stargazing at night. Only trivial thing is that its located near the main road you can get to hear a little traffic noise at night but can be ignored.

    Chetan2015-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sajan is a great host and we are happy that we selected his property to stay. Starting from location to food to stay to hospitality, everything was just perfect. He goes out of the way to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. Food was lip smacking for all meals. We tried one so called famous restaurant for lunch and soon realized the food prepared by the cook is the best in town. Strongly recommend this place for stay in Wayanad.

    Sarika 2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sajan is a great host. He came to meet us while we checked-in and also came back when we were checking out. He helped us with local tips and suggested the must-go places. A special mention to his caretaker Rijesh and his wife who cooked us some amazing food. While we were very happy with the place, one thing that I would just add as a suggestion is to add a refrigerator which can help guests store perishable stuff. I would definitely recommend this place to visitors who go to Wayanad.

    Ganesh2017-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wayanad was a wonderful experience for the 6 of us from Bangalore. The villa is located just off the state highway and it's pretty easy to find on maps. Sajan - the host was one of the best hosts I've ever had the chance to meet. Immensely trustworthy - my friend forgot his wallet... Sajan helped us locate it, packed it and delivered it to us safely. I would highly recommend Sajan & this homestay @wayanad. Cheers Sajan - do keep in touch :) !

    Nikhil2016-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • A home away from home, nothing puts it down better than this. First of all to all noise-o-phobics: The house lies next to a main road. So there is a road with cars and busses and trucks passing by. But thats it. The road will quieten down in the evening/at night. And this is where the fun begins. The place is spacious, cool, clean, and probably the best basis to explore Wayanad. Everything is easy to catch from there on and the services available through Sajan are as premium as the home stay is, may it be drivers or Ayurveda treatments. Sajan is taking the utmost care that you see the unspoiled, real Wayanad. Apart from that he runs a coffee and cardamom plantation and the food served at Kaffee Bohne (made by the wife of Rijesh, the housekeeper) is incredibly good. By the way, Kaffee Bohne is German and it refers to Sajans time in Germany. Definitely a must go.

  • Great place with a beautiful valley view

    Saumya2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • It was a long weekend in the month of October when me and my wife visited this place. We were looking for a place where we could spend some peaceful time and do nothing else and... Bingo..!! Our experience/review: * Accuracy of Description : Spot on.! The pics, the surrounding, the ambience... everything testifies. The distance from this place to nearby spots is something we didn't explore, so can't comment on that. * Hospitality : If you fear of having an awkward feeling of being and moving around in "someone's" house, then don't fret, the hosts reside in the ground floor and the first floor is all yours. No privacy concerns, no constant checking-in.. they just let you be to yourself, unless you have ordered for food :). Talking about food/snacks, you'll be asked for the preferred time of serving and I don't know how they pull it off, they stick to the said time. * Food : Believe me.. It can't get more homely than this ! An authentic taste of food prepared at home, what makes it so much homely.? Most of the ingredients used for cooking is cultivated right there, isn't that wonderful.. One of the days there was a coorg style Pork dish, that topped our list ;) * Hygiene : Everything from the surrounding, room, utensils.. is at its best. Considering the fact, that unlike a hotel/lodge the hosts themselves are responsible for this kind of maintenance is highly appreciated. * Advice : I know this is not required, but it's free just take it :P ... Places like these are not simply called "home" stays, please...treat it like one. Paul uncle and Lissy aunty you truly were a wonderful hosts.

    Rijoy2015-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Mr Paul was really helpful and ensured that we had a great vacation. His place is a little interior but the view is breathtaking. The balcony is huge with swing etc. the pictures dsn't do justice to the breathtaking view you get. The sound of birds and insects are so soothing to the ears. And the food was really very very tasty.. Had a wonderful experience.

    Swarupendra2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • This location is perfect! Guests have the use of the whole upper floor with a balcony, which has a stunning views over the Coorg. Paul and his wife Lizzy are excellent hosts.

    Alan2015-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Dear sir, it's very nice place to stay and your hospitality and your helping nature amazing. We felt our stay in our home. Thanks for your Concern and caring nature.

    Vasanth2016-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed with my friend for a weekend at this place to experience the enthralling nature at Coorg. And we found a perfect host in Paul and his family. They were warm and courteous and helped us feel at home. The amenities at the room was appropriate and adequate. They also helped us with suggestions about visiting near by places. I would recommend this place to others.

    Ajit2016-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Truly tranquil! It was sad to leave the place. Paulsons were like family. Food was brilliant! Stay was peaceful! No better way to ring in the new years! Must visit ASAP!

    Aravind2016-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Loved every bit of our short stay at Paul uncle s place. Breathtaking view and truly amazing hosts. As the name suggests, definitely the place to be if tranquility is what you are looking for. Would definitely recommend.

There are a few fishermen engaged in traditional fishing activities. The beaches are nice, secluded & clean. The nature is very beautiful.
  • Jasar is a great host, very helpful in finding out any information that he didn't already know or have suggestions for, and extremely welcoming. We loved the cottage, it was a perfect ~1 mile walk to all the shopping & dining on the cliff, the perfect distance to get some exercise or a quick auto-rickshaw ride if we weren't feeling up to the exercise. The cottages were super quiet and private, but very well tended by the on-site care-taker so we felt very safe and looked after. We enjoyed whiling away the super-hot late afternoon hours on the porch reading or napping until it was time to head back out for more activities. Varkala was an outstanding location for our vacation and I would definitely recommend a stay at the cottage.

    Jennifer2014-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jasar was a fantastic host to me and 4 friends, (we rented both cottages). He greeted us when we arrived and showed us around, answered our many questions, arranged scooter hire for us and even took one friend to the pharmacy when she was ill. He was everything a host should be and we felt very welcome. The location of the cottages is unbelievable, right on the ocean, we watched dolphins frolic in the water as we ate breakfast! Breakfast was excellent as well, really tasty Keralan food. The cottages themselves are private and comfortable, there is aircon if it gets too hot, but the fan was fine most of the time. We used the hammocks and verandah sun loungers a lot - the view through coconut palms to the sea is stunning. Varkala beach cliff is about a 20 min walk along the beach path or the cottage caretaker will call a rickshaw anytime which will take you there in about 5 mins. There are a couple of restaurants in 5-10 min walking distance at the closest resorts if you don't want to head into Varkala. We had a wonderful stay and missed the cottages as soon as we left!

    Lucy2015-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Jasar's place at Varkala is exactly what you look for at a beach town. Plush, extremely clean, scenic, spacious and affordable. The house is elegantly done with a wooden ceiling, kitchen for basic use and a comfortable bed. The bathroom is clean. About 20 metres from the cottage is the cliff which overlooks the blue Arabian Sea. The housekeeper is polite and arranges for good breakfast and food options. Scooter was arranged for at extra cost. The location on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps is not 100% accurate due to the nature of the roads. However, that does not take away from a 5-star rating. Highly recommended.

    Varun2017-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • The location is just out of the world. The homestay has been me made keeping in mind to leave the natural surroundings intact, which is what I loved the most. Everything was just perfect for us. The room is well equipped, clean and on request the caretaker is there to help out always. They helped in coordinating our travel to reach the home stay and also gave an idea about the good places of attractions around. We were given guidance for whatever help we needed. We were here for a very short stay but I definitely wanted to stay over for many more days. The location is scenic and peaceful , away from the hustle of the regular tourist place. They helped us in getting a two-wheeler on rent so that we could go around easily. The breakfast was a very tasty home-cooked meal. Overall, it was a very relaxing trip we had to Varkala thanks to this beautiful place.

    Archana2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed in this villa during March, 2015 and had a really enjoyable experience. The property is a large, secluded coconut grove atop a cliff. At the bottom of the cliff, there's a small beach. (We never saw another soul on this beach the entire time we were there.) The villa itself is lovely. It's clearly been made with care, and Jasar provides all sorts of thoughtful amenities - shampoo, an umbrella, yoga mat, etc. Jasar, the proprietor, is one of the most hospitable hosts I've encountered. He is a genuinely kind person who truly wants to ensure his guests have a nice time. His house is just a few minutes away from the villa, and he comes by every day to check on his guests. He brought us homemade breakfast every day and even took us home to meet his family! Jasar clearly loves Kerala, and he is willing to share his extensive knowledge of local traditions and points of interest with his guests. I would definitely recommend visiting this property.

    Virginia2015-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay with an amazing view to the sea. Very calm and peaceful. Good to enjoy the nature and relax. Some walkable restaurants at the coast were there too :)

    Priyanka2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the cottage for 3 nights. It was a spacious, clean and comfortable cottage. We enjoyed our stay and Jasar is a very friendly and kind host house.

    Matt2015-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Jasar was a fantastic host and the cottage was exactly what I was after. It was great to be in such well-equipped and well-presented accommodation. The small resort of just two cottages situated on its own cliff really made it feel exclusive and peaceful. Set away from the main town of Varkala it was only a short 25 minute walk along to the main cliff and the beach. Jasar made a special effort as I was travelling alone, also organising collection and drop-off for my train. I whole-heartedly recommend!

  • We really liked our stay at Anita's . The place was clean The breakfast was very tasty typical Kerala breakfast and we also had a request for masala eggs and they were happy to accommodate us . Anita was very helpful and extremely pleasant to deal with . She has a nice way about her which made us feel at home and a beautiful smiling face which is what you want when your traveling ... She is perfectly located just a short walk up to the beach ,restaurants and shops but tucked back enough so we were able to have some peace and tranquility . I really enjoyed having her animals there for company ..

  • Absolutely loved staying at Anita's AirBnB. Great location about 100 steps away from the Varkala Cliff. She gave us great recommendations for restaurants and the breakfast available at the AirBnB (for 100 INR/person) was delicious. We would definitely stay here again! The room we had was spacious and clean. The lounge downstairs is wonderful and the roof deck lounge is even better.

Lots of good chill out areas and it was a perfect location to the restaurants, beach and shops. The hosts were all extremely helpful and friendly.

  • Anita really made our group feel welcome and did a lot to make our experience a good one. She always answered any questions and help us get any information that we need. The place was very nice and really close to the beach. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone that is visiting Varkala.

    Bengt2015-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first stop in India and it was magical. The room was clean and comfortable with our own little balcony. There was a great communal place to hangout where we met wonderful new people. The location is perfect just close to the cliff and all the shops. Varkala is a magical little town with a beautiful beach and great restaurants and shops. Anita was fantastic with assisting to arrange a driver to collect us from the airport. She made us feel so welcome and even assisted us with organizing the next part of our travels to the backwaters. We also enjoyed a delicious breakfast and chai tea. Great place to stay that is so inviting. A home away from home. It's a pity we could not stay longer but I hope to go back soon and I will definitely stay at Anita's place again. Thanks again Anita for the great hospitality and all your help. It was lovely to meet you and I hope we meet again soon.

    Donna2016-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot speak highly enough about the New White House! As soon as I arrived Dr Rajan made me feel like I was at home. He was most accommodating from the word go, telling me where to go to eat, showing me around, and always at hand if I needed anything. The accommodation itself is lovely. All brand new with showers, comfortable beds, private balconies and a lovely communal seating area, with free water and tea. Anita and the Doctor have great plans for the place, and I very much hope to return in order to enjoy yoga and more Ayurvedic treatments with them! Thoroughly recommended!

  • This was my very first trip to India, and I cannot imagine a better place to start my journey into the beauty and hospitality of the Indian culture. From the time she picked me up at the airport, Anita made me feel at home in a country I have never seen before. The atmosphere in the retreat is warm and friendly, you meet with interesting people and if you like, you can easily make new friends and become "part of the family". Rooms are exceptionally spacy and clean, the cliff and beach a mere 30 meters away. Anitas wonderful cook provides you with authentic southern indian food if you wish, Anita is a great host who really knows her way around the area, and she loves to take care of the needs of her guests, which varies from taking you on an shopping tour up to taking you to the dentist, if you need one. Authentic ayurvedic treatment is available through Dr. Rajan. His healing hands transform the body and the mind upon request. Vegans: This place is vegan wonderland. The food is authentic vegan with lots of fresh vegetables and curries, cooked fresh on a semi daily basis. Pets are around: The retreat also hosts a little dog and two kittens.

    Cloudsland is the ideal place for those wishing to spend their holidays to experience a homestay in Munnar.
  • Every moment of stay was fantastic

    Sadhu2016-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Manu's place. He is a really nice person and gave a lot of suggestions on things to see around. He was also helpful in arranging daytrips around Munnar. The food in the evening was really tasty and you should definitely give it a try. Thanks Manu for the good time we had in Munnar. Cheers

    Melanie2017-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Manu is a lovely host and we really enjoyed our stay. His English is excellent! Room was really nice with an amazing view of the mountains and a good size with a nice bathroom. Located outside of town, but in a really beautiful area, right next to tea farms. We also opted for the food there, which was excellent and reasonably priced. I would also definitely recommend the walking tour - this was my favourite activity and a great way to experience Munnar. Would definitely recommend this place for those wanting to experience Munnar.

    Jamie2017-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • A little tough to know the place.. but the stay itself looks like a nice view.. and it surrounded with tea plantations.. nice experience

    Sri2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view, great location (few minutes walk trop tea plantation), amazing food and nicest hosts , de definetely recommend the place

    Laurianne2017-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic homestay in the beautiful tea plantations about 7km south of Munnar. Manu and his team were super helpful and friendly. The food was excellent and the rooms some of the best we've stayed in. It all made for a great few days, and I would highly recommend staying here. Only two minor criticisms; the downstairs room we originally had was very damp and on the organised jeep safari it would have been better if the guide spoke a little more English so he could elaborate on what we were being shown.

    Paul2016-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Accommodation was excellent and I was fortunate to stay in the new room! Manu organised a hike for me with Vijay, a car to take me to Top Station and then to Kochi. Both were as good as Manu. Initially I thought breakfast was included, however I had to pay for this but the cost was small.

    Sandip2017-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Cloudsland: As the name goes, it's perfect for the place. It's everything you expect from it and the pictures just don't justify how beautiful the place is. Me and another friend of mine who was also a girl were travelling alone and we felt safe. Binu and Manu were great hosts! The food will definitely surprise you; it's that good. They were really helpful. We had communication problems and were skeptical how to get to the home stay but Manu picked us up after we came a little distance! And that's just one example of how nice the hosts are! Other great thing is that they do give you essentials such as towel, soap, etc., So I think it's great. Overall, I will definitely recommend cloudsland. We had a great great time there and I'm sure with Manu and Binu as your hosts, you will too!

    gregoire2015-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Nous avons passé 2 nuits très agréables chez Stephen. Il est très accueillant et est la personne idéale pour vous aider à organiser votre séjour ! Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le tour en Vélo à 12km de Mysore dans le site du Sultan Tippu. Stephen nous a épaté par sa connaissance de la culture et de l'histoire indienne ! C'était vraiment super de l'avoir comme guide.

    Aurélie2015-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • I do not think I can do better than the previous review by Jony, except to say, staying at Stephen and Manjula's place was the highlight of our Mysore stay. Stephen brings everyone together in dialogue and his ourstanding bicycle tours which are not to be missed. Manjula's cooking is the best we ever had in this region. They do their utmost best to make this home your home, while the roof top terrace became our sunset oasis. Meeting other travellers that all seemed so to share the same travelling ideology, be it single travellers, couples or family with kids made this an eye opener of a stop. The location is slightly outside of town, although Vansatha the rickshaw driver is an excellent person to take you around town. You call, he is there and he waits for you in town if that is what you want. A very reasonable and honest man. He is really the local fixer who knows everything. He was so personally helpful. Once again, if this is what you are looking for it is not to be missed. Thanks Stephen and Manjula and Lucy the dog.

    Jeffrey2017-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • My advice: Go there, stay there at this wonderful house experience the warm welcome, enjoy the marvelous veg food, get one's inspiration from Stephens stories ... I took back home unforgettable memories. Frauke

    Frauke2015-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Superb hosting - a double act of Stephen and Manjula that sees to all your needs: an amazing knowledge of Mysore and its surroundings, a willingness to help and wonderful food! They make you feel at home and create a great atmosphere. The accommodation is very good, the location nice and quiet. Our only regret: not to have stayed a bit longer!

    Geneviève2016-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay with Steve and Manjula, take it! They offer a comfortable and clean house, amazing food and great conversation. Stay for the optional dinner because Majula is an outstanding cook. Also we did the bike tour and it was fun and unique way to explore an Indian village-highly recommend it! As a long time airbnb user this was one of my favorite experiences. Cheers!

    Katy2016-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed very much the fantastic stay we had in Mysore BB, everything was great and we loved the comfortable atmosphere. Thanks to Manjula and Stephen it's a great place to be in Mysore.

  • Merci pour ce superbe séjour a Kovalam. Les chambres sont a proximité de la plage, le restaurant qui le juxte est délicieux. le personnel est au petit soin et très accueillant. Youssouf est d une très grande gentillesse et très arrangeant pour nous aider a optimiser notre séjour. Nous avons aussi découvert les massages Ayudeens en famille, une très bonne expérience. Merci de votre accueil!

    Claire2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to stay in kovalam, away from the touts and restauranteurs of the main drag but close enough to them if you need. The breakfast provided is delicious and some of the best coffee I've had in India. Only small downside was that there is no yoga, as advertised in the add. I was told this was because it was the off season, however this was not mentioned prior to my arrival. Otherwise it was the perfect stay in a very clean, spacious and homely room.

    Jackson2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • I really liked my stay at Yusuf’s place. Everything was perfect. He treats his guests like kings. He is one of the best hosts I have met in my life. The atmosphere in the hotel is great. Everybody is friendly and warmhearted. The hotel is clean, the rooms are spacious with high ceiling. The area is beautiful, the beach close and the ayurveda treatment very professional. All in all it was the perfect start to my first stay in India. Thank you very much to Yusuf and his team.

    Luca2016-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at Anitha'S with Yousef and his team. The accommodation is large, airy, with a lovely balcony in the sun and plenty of storage space. When I got chilly and asked for a blanket, Yousef was there in a shot! He is a smiley, gentle and affable host. Nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast is fabulous with an amazing amount of fresh fruit, all sorts of teas, eggs and toast. A great start to the day and his lovely chef is very attentive. One other bonus for me was a bath! The first bath in India and an absolute luxury. Thank you so much Yousef. I would recommend Anitha'S to anyone who wishes a happy time in Kovalum ;-)

    Aileen2016-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • I was treat as a Queen by Yousuf and his team! Thank you so much for your professionalism and your kindness. A lot of thanks to Sharath for his marvelous breakfasts, to Suni for the creative juices and he meticulous cleaning, to Sadi for the luxuriant garden and of course to Sudha for her delightful Ayurvedic Massages! I recommend highly Anitha's Garden Stay.

    Laure2016-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at this accommodation! The rooms were very spacious, clean and bright. The beach is only a minute away and the fish served at the on-site restaurant was amazing! I can definitely recommend this place :)

    Hello everyone Sea hut is a home stay with 4 independent double bed rooms on a common veranda.The room has a king size double bed and an aircon in it. Its a perfect retreat for tourist who want to run away from the hectic city's.
    Sea hut is the only homestay in kochi which is right on the ocean. And you could sleep hearing the waves. And where you can see the sunset on your backyard. And where you can see the dolphins playing around in the ocean. Our place is very silent and peaceful and is off the busy streets of kochi and its just 3km( less than 10min) to all the main tourist attractions. And we have 4 hammocks for the lazy ones who likes to relax or to finish a book.. Sea hut is one of its kind... Come and stay with us to experience it.
  • This was a first class stay for our first Airbnb experience. We felt so welcome from the moment we arrived at your beautiful home. It lived up to everything we hoped for - the location was brilliant, the rooms gorgeous - it was just such a perfect place to spend Xmas eve and day. The kids loved playing in the sand, lying in the hammocks and swinging all day! We loved being able to be lulled by the sound of the ocean and watching the sunset from the sea wall. All this and just a quick tuktuk into the action of Fort Cochin. Thank you so much for making us feel so relaxed travelling with three children under 8!! We would recommend your home to anyone! We would love to return if we are ever in Fort Cochin again!

    Gemma2015-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • To begin with, our host helped us find the way to the sea hut by speaking on the phone with our auto guy. On arrival, they offered us a refreshing cup of tea. The sea hut is located on the fort Kochi island and not Ernakulam, which is helpful as all the tourist places are in a radius of 3 km. The sea hut is actually located by the sea - (no direct view from the level of the house or room)..but one has to walk up a short ramp to see the full view of sea. In the morning though, was woken up to the sound of waves which was really refreshing. A lot of help was offered in sight seeing options by the hosts. Aunty also offered us delicious appams with vegetable curry for breakfast. For the taxi and some of the tourist options though, it will be good to do one's own research as well to get the best options and prices.

    Aditi2015-09-26T00:00:00Z

    Thomas 2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • I confidently recommend Sea Hut homestay to anyone coming to Kochi. I stayed there a week and what a lovely and relaxing place. Located near Fort Kochi and just in front of the sea, I was appeased by the sound of waves crashing into the rocks. I was warm welcomed by Hema and her family which were all very friendly and kindness. Hema is cooking very well and it was a great please to have my breakfast and dinner there everyday. Overall, a great place lulled by the sound of the sea, a charming house, a relaxing garden, and above all a warm family. Thank you very much and I look forward coming back.

    Olivier2015-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sharath and Antony were the best hosts! They arranged the transfer from the airport in a very nice car with an excellent driver and they could not have been more helpful during our stay Highly recommended

  • Basil was such a wonderful host! He was very helpful with our itineraries while we were in Cochin, Kerala. He even went out of his way to book our train tickets to Agra which was rather difficult to do and even brought us to the train station himself. Annie, his wife was also a great cook! Overall, our stay at the Mylanthra Homestay was great! Will definitely recommend his place and will go back there again.

    Rick2016-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Though the host was busy in election work, he made time to visit us and was very welcoming. The place is as described, however please note this is not an entire house as you might imagine- it would have been nicer if this was more like a home than two separate rooms. We missed having a kitchen and a fridge and a living room. But I guess we didn't pay close attention to the details before booking. But overall great place to stay nevertheless- but getting here could is not that easy though

    Mithun2016-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Riverside River Facing Cottage is exactly what was depicted on the website. The cottage was very clean. The doors and windows were fixed with mosquito nets. There were two rooms. One had two single beds. The other room has a double bed which is large and comfortable. There were sufficient pillows and blankets for our family. There was also coffee making facility. The bathrooms (one attached to each room) were equipped with hot water through out the day. All the electrical amenity were functioning in good order. Breakfast was quintessentially 'Malayalee' and delicious. Mrs. Basil also cooked dinner which was very enjoyable. Mr. Basil and his wife were exceptional hosts. They were very accommodating and kind. These are our unanimous remarks from all 6 of us in the family. There is nothing Mr. Basil cannot help with. Once my sisters were stranded in a nearby restaurant because of rain. The auto could not ferry my sister who has mobility limitation. Mr. Basil drove to the restaurant to pick them up personally. Mr. Basil helps with any query you have about Cochin. We used his contact for transportation which was safe and reliable. He also recommended places for Ayurveda treatments, contact for houseboat and stores to buy souvenirs ; all of which were reliable, reasonable and offered excellent services. It was an enjoyable stay.

    Vaani2016-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Basil's place. Basil is a great host and his wife made 2 amazing home cooked meals for us. We were in kerela for 10 days and I believe this was the best food we had - homemade or otherwise. The good: Delicious homemade food, if 4 people traveling together 2 rooms next to each other work out great. Hot water available in bathrooms, all very clean. The bad: The mosquitoes are plenty, best come prepared with mosquito spray. The driver that picked us up from the Airport drove quite maniacally amid heavy traffic even after requesting to slow down. Basil helped book a house boat which turned out to be our worst experience in kerela. When it comes to houseboat, IMHO either spend 25K per room on super deluxe boat or go to boat stand and walk into multiple boats before picking one.

    Aman2016-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Basil Uncle's cottage was ideal for our stay. It was clean, well-maintained and very close to backwaters. The only problem was mosquitoes, repellents and the meshed doors seemed to work. Annie aunty's breakfasts were tasty and sumptuous. Their recommendations for sight-seeing, kathakali/kallari shows, restaurants were exceptional. Would definitely recommend.

    Vaishnavi2017-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • May parents and I stayed at Mr. Basil's place for two nights. My parents loved the beautiful and rustic place with a great view of a huge body of backwater right next to the premises. This was my second time staying here, and for sure, I will stay here again whenever I come back to Kochi. Mr. Basil and His wife Annie and very nice and warm people. They will make you feel right at home. Don't miss the chance to stay at their place whenever you get the chance.

    Puneet2016-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this place for it's location, it's cleanliness and most of all for the outstanding hospitality of the hosts Basil and his wife. The place is not far from Fort Kochi where most of the places of interest are located. The rooms are spacious, neat and well maintained. The backwaters are literally in the back yard and you can stroll down to it anytime you desire. Above all this place gets my full marks due to it's host. He was there to receive us. He was friendly and exuded the warna of a family member. His suggestions on p visit and dine out

    Ravindran2017-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Basil was a perfect host. Nothing was too much trouble. We loved that he arranged trips for us and gave us suggestions on where to eat and places to see. The cottage was immaculate and the setting really peaceful compared to the bustle of Fort Kochi. We loved chatting to Basil over the delicious breakfasts and being directly next to the waters edge. A thoroughly delightful part of our holiday. Thank you

    Tucked away in a little village in Varkala, Villa Ākāśa is a quiet guesthouse, surrounded by nature and a few minutes walk from a beautiful, untouched beach. Our rooms are simple but elegant and are built for you to enjoy your time away from the chaos of the city.
    • 3 spacious rooms with separate entrance • Private verandas to lay back and relax • All rooms with en suite bathrooms (ground floor rooms with shower area open to the sky) • Verandas of the ground floor rooms face opposite directions to maintain privacy • Breakfast included • Homely Indian dinner can be arranged if requested in the morning • Free wi-fi • Ceiling fans only, no air conditioners in the room • Taxi to and from the Trivandrum airport can be arranged at an additional charge Surrounding area: Villa Akasa is in the heart of a village that is still barely touched by tourist development. We invite you to sit out on your private balcony and listen to the unique sounds of village life: the whisper of the coconut trees, the chirping of crickets during the night, the sounds of worship during the day. A short walk down the hill will lead you to the beach. This part of Kerala is geographically unique as it is the only place in Kerala where cliffs touch the Arabian Sea. The aqua green water contrasts with the bright red of the cliffs making this the perfect place to swim and to watch the sun set. The North cliff or main tourist area is a twenty minute walk or short bicycle ride away. Here you will find some beautiful restaurants perched along the cliff edge and small shops selling curios and beach clothes. Auto-richshaws can easily be arranged for you. Close by there is also a traditional Kerala style temple which is over 2000 years old. This temple is steeped in legend and myth and has an ancient energy; visiting it is a beautiful experience. Other attractions of Kerala - elephant rides, house boat trips along the backwaters, ayurvedic massages and treatments - are easily arranged.
  • We loved Shama's place...everything about it was relaxing and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious (best coffee in India). The 2 dinners we had were also amazing. The outdoor showers are inspired. But the best thing was the staff and Shama herself who were lovely and incredibly helpful, getting medication for my husband who was unwell, and giving us helpful tips. And the 5 mins away quiet beach was beautiful. All in all we would absolutely recommend this place to anyone.

    Anna2016-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Akasa truly is paradise. The rooms are lovely and the garden has a beautiful tropical feel. Shama and her team are fantastic hosts and helped us on numerous occasions to find the best that Varkala has to offer. Pramod, the manager, was brilliant and we have only the highest regard for him. You will not be disappointed with your stay at Villa Akasa.

  • We had a wonderful time at Chic VIlla. It was as though we had our own personal chalet. Nabin was fabulous and took care of us. The breakfast was wonderful and set up on the patio, such a lovely start to the day. We also loved the open bathroom. The decor was v. stylish and (URL HIDDEN) was an easy walk to the beach.We loved our stay and would definitely come back.

    Cheryl2014-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was a magical stay. Shama is a wonderful host who was always caring for our every need. The room was kept spotlessly clean and the breakfasts and meals we enjoyed were beautifully prepared by Gita and served so courteously by Vijay. We would highly recommend Villa Akasa to anyone visiting Varkala Beach.

    John2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • I felt really welcome in Shamas house from the very beginning of my stay there. First of all, Shamas house is beautifully designed, tasteful and situated in a tropical garden that embraces you. The private veranda where breakfast and other meals are served is a wonderful addition to the room, which was big, bright and clean. Besides the room also had a huge bathroom with an outdoor or roofless shower which just felt great. A perfect place to stay at very private and close to a beach which hardly had any other guests than us.

    Hlín2015-01-15T00:00:00Z

We were welcomed with loving hospitality and felt at home straight away. Even tough Shama was not there during our stay, we felt that she did her upmost to make us feel at home and comfortable. She is a perfect host and we had the pleasure of getting a personal welcome and goodbye by phone from her, which was very lovely. Nabin was a perfect and lovable host as well and went out of his way to help us with everything. We felt very well cared of! All in all we had a perfect stay at a wonderful place, where we were spoiled with the best hospitality you can imagine. We would recommend this villa to everyone. Thanks again Shama for sharing your house with us!! It was the best finish for our honeymoon!

  • Villa Akasa was awesome! The place was nice, clean, and a close walk to the beach. Shama even sent us a car to pick us up at the airport at a reasonable price. Overall great experience, would have loved to stay longer. Thank you!

  • Turrett surprises you with a calm and secluded surrounding in spite of being located right in the heart of the town . The rooms are clean and well maintained. The lawn right in front of the cottage, makes the best place to spend the evening late into the night, sipping your drink and soaking in the Ooty cold. Stephen the caretaker, was helpful in getting anything that you need during the stay, be it for getting breakfast delivered ,making a quick chai or even buying the necessary supplies. The kitchen is stocked with milk,bread,eggs and other basics. It would have been a tad bit better if breakfast was included as a part of the package since one's unlikely to be in a mood to make it in the morning in spite of the supplies being there! However, there was no hassle in getting it thanks to Stephen. Overall, we had a great time at Hari's place and I have already recommended Turrett in my circle.

  • If you are looking for a place to replax with family for a weekend or longer, look no further. Wonderfuly manaintianed property with a beautiful lawn in the front...you will love it !!

  • Hi Hari, The stay was amazing we loved the place it was very neat and clean as seen in the pictures of Airbnb. would love to come back again with family and friends and also would surely recommend to others.

    Hitesh2017-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Was a cool, relaxing place for families. However the neighbourhood was crowded with lots of buildings, that's the trade off if you need to stay in heart of the town. The rose garden was just a stone throw away. I just loved the lawn and their care taker Gopal was courteous enough to organize the food for us.

    Suhas2015-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • Nous étions à Ooty pour une dizaine de jours mi-juillet et nous y avons passé un séjour merveilleux, dû autant aux plaisirs variés qu’offre cette petite ville qu’à la beauté et la sérénité de Turrett Cottage. Outre le confort classique qu’offre tout hébergement de haut standing (propreté et service impeccable, cuisine bien équipée, literie très confortable etc.), Turrett Cottage est pourvu d’un jardin absolument magnifique, un vrai régal pour les yeux. La pièce à vivre (salon et salle à manger), grâce à la rangée de fenêtre donnant sur le jardin est une pièce chaleureuse et lumineuse, même par temps pluvieux. Turrett Cottage se trouve de plus être extrêmement bien placé : à 5 min à pied du Rose Garden et à un peu plus de 10 min du centre (en descendant). Des autorickshaws sont toujours parqués au coin de la rue et peuvent vous emmener pour 50 roupies au centre ville, pour 120 roupies au lac et pour 80 roupies jusqu’au Modern Store, le magasin idéal pour remplir le frigo et les placards (on y trouve un grand choix de produits occidentaux : pain, pâtes, thon en boîte, corn flakes, yaourts etc. et ne pas oublier : de l’excellent chocolat). Il y a également juste au coin de la rue une petite épicerie où l’on peut trouver les produits de première nécessité (lait, yaourt, pain de mie, œufs, biscuits etc.), bien que Steven, le caretaker, s’assure qu’il y ait toujours tout ce qu’il faut pour le petit déjeuner. Bref, nous recommandons chaleureusement Turrett Cottage. Hari et les Shyam, les propriétaires, Pavan et Suresh, les managers et Steven, le caretaker, prennent extrêmement soin de leurs hôtes et sont toujours prêts à aider.

    The cottage is situated in an organic farm in the western ghats in Coorg. The house can accommodate couples to small groups as well. It has a nice big veranda and a cozy loft as well that has a view of surrounding greenery. Fire place and a small kitchen included .
    The cottage is in a beautiful coffee estate nestled in the western ghats. There is a verandah, a loft and kitchntette. There is lots to explore a stream flowing through the property, a fresh water pond one can swim in , walking along trails amidst pepper, coffee, fruit trees, and other native forest trees
  • Our stay at Nachi's estate was wonderful! We stayed for a day and covered the entire estate. We got to pluck our own guavas, chikkoos, mangoes and even avacados! The food cooked by maids at the estate is functional. The cottage is rustic and cute. The big bed in the loft is ideal for group outings and playing board games. In the middle of nowhere we really connected with nature. But most of all, the company of 4 delightful, playful and friendly dogs made our stay here memorable! A big thanks to Nachi for hosting us and taking care of all requirements (He even got us beer!).

    Aditya2017-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Nice calm place. The host is a very creative person . Always available for any need during our stay. The army of dogs and one cute cat was the best part of our trip. His associate Rajendran was another support and kind guide. Thanks to Nachiappan for his hosting and to let us experience his huge farm to explore the nature at its best.

    Pardeep2016-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect getaway to chill from our hectic work lives! This place is beautiful and the decor is so hip! Our favourite part of the entire stay was the loving dogs on the property and a massive pond that you can spend hours in!

    Mekha2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • For a young group of travellers, this place is a GO-TO. The host and his friends are extremely friendly and were ready to help us out in arranging cabs for sight seeing. The estate is extremely beautiful, during the day and night. The place is serene, filled with sounds of the nature. Overall, it's one place to go if you are looking for a proper break from city life..

    Aditya2016-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, nice home, huge coffee estate with lush green surrounding. 4 Super friendly and cute dogs. Recommended for families.

    Puneet2017-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Would definitively recommend but we felt the stay was a bit overpriced compared to the other stays . The place was very pleasant , lucy , dheba and Lola were very friendly and they were really great in being watch dogs . Nachi was very good to communicate with great host . The only draw back is we had hard time with the ants and insects in the kitchen . Apart from that our stay was fine .

    prayag reddy2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • I think the bewilderment of choosing one particular thing to praise about the Estate says a lot about it. We had a great stay all thanks to the awesome host and the secluded surroundings and the best dogs ever. All in all, a great trip!

    Abhishek2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nachiappan is a kind and helpful host who runs the estate and homestay on his own. There's a pond and TT table area that's open to guests which you may enjoy. The cottage is a refurbished spice drying house that's well designed. Please note that it consists of one room with beds on all sides that will double as the living room as well. The place is about a 30 min drive from Madikeri. Thanks again to Nachiappan for a great weekend!

    KMR Villa, Kotagiri, located in Nilgiris, the Western Ghats, is considered to be one of the finest hill stations in India (just 90 minutes drive from Coimbatore Airport). The house offers stunning views from every room including the famous dolphin nose of Conoor. Amenities include: fully furnished house, well equipped kitchen and plenty of parking space. You can also enjoy dining outdoors/indoors, go for a trek, a walk or just relax! If you get lucky, you can also spot wildlife!
    KMR Villa(Named after my grandfather) was completed in 2011 and is in the midst of nature and Serenity. The house consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, a kitchen, 3 bathrooms, two balconies and a tea estate. The House has been built with a lot of love and passion. We have listed it on Airbnb as a tribute to my late grandfather; he was a civil engineer and this was his last project. Through Airbnb we wish to continue his legacy and help spread the joy of staying at KMR Villa. It is two kilometres from Catherine Waterfalls and it is a lovely trek from the house to get to the falls! We wish that all our guests can create beautiful memories at KMR Villa!
    KMR Villa is surrounded by nature and has the most beautiful sunrise and even more stunning sunsets! You can walk around the estate or even go for a trek to Catherine Water Falls which is 2 Kilometres from the house. You can view Dolphin Nose from the Village, a drive to the place is recommended.
  • It was a terrific vacation that we had at Rachna's place. The space was amazing. Rachna, as a host was very charming and efficient. She managed the show very well though she had to do it remotely. Also full marks to her for speaking fluent Marathi, which made our experience very personal. The house was great, the caretakers sweet. Thoroughly recommended.

    Kaushal2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Friends, the KMR Bungalow is beyond our imagination !! We had second best morning in our lives !! The atmosphere is so good that it can;t be narrated in words !! The bungalow is in the midst of Tea Gardens !! It is so peaceful that during entire day, you will feel immense peace of mind !! Since there is no traffic, you get fresh air and oxygen !! Just go for it !! The Music System of Onkyo is too good !!

  • Welcomed by Chocolates. Great Location, Best Stay, Awesome Owner.

    Manu2016-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Rachna is an amazing host, always one step ahead of her guests. The communication prior to the trip was swift and accommodating. The home had a spectacular view. It's easy to get distracted by the beautiful surroundings. Do remember to stock up on toiletries and check where the nearby eateries are before getting to the home as both moving around and getting certain items is not easy if you're not a local (:

    Sinnamon2016-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • 1. The place is exotic and the view is breathtaking all around 2. Caretakers Shekar & Ms.Chandra played perfect as hosts on behalf of Rachna who was guiding on remote. 3. Kitchen is very well equipped with 4 burner hob, an induction, microwave, mixie grinder, toaster, a grill and a fridge. All necessary cookware, plates, glasses and cutlery are plenty. 4. Dining tables both in door as well as in a balcony overlooking the valley is very inviting. 5. The tea plantation around the house and the well maintained garden in front attracts lots of birds with varieties which is a delight to hear and see. 6. The TV with TataSky and the Denon amplifier adds a good modern amenity but the downside is it keeps you connected with the outside world which we want to forget in this heavenly abode! 7. a.Places to visit closeby are Catherine Falls 2 kms which is known to all and the fit has to trek to challenge themselves on the return leg. b. off beat places for nature lovers/ bird watchers/ eco, are the Longwood Shola Reserve Forest of 110 acres, just off Kothagiri Kodanad road, which has a planned 3 kms eco walk by the friendly staff of watchers of TN Govt. Forest Dept, like Ms. Parvathy (ask Rachna for her mobile#) explaining the flora and fauna, filled with medicinal plants and hundreds of birds and butterflies c. for the folks loving history, don't miss the Sullivan Museum, the founder of the Nilgiris for the non tribals, again neat & well maintained and guided by Ms. Gayathri (ask Rachna for her mobile#) at Kannerimukku village 5 kms off Kothagiri d. and at Kannerimukku, for the pious, a 102 year old temple of Lord Navaneetha Krishna e. Aravenu to Coonoor to be tried on the Vandisolai road which is again shorter by at least 20 kms and off beat f. Glass painting by the tribals at Mookumalai which is seen from the balcony of KMR Villa but venture with caretakers' permission only as the approach is only by foot and a steep climb. Overall holiday experience at KMR Villa is 100% satisfaction and will make you long for more!

    Subramanian2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second trip to Kothakiri in such a short time, it was awesome trip and one awesome accomadation. Thanks Rachna & Team for accomodating us in such a short notice.

    Shafeeq2017-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Nestled amidst lush green tea gardens on the foreground and Nilgiris on the background, KMR Villa was a wonderful experience for me. The villa is equipped with everything that you would need, right from a fully functional kitchen to a dedicated play room. The location of the place is undoubtedly amazing with bustling flora and fauna. I highly recommend the place if you are looking forward to a relaxed holiday. P.s. Rachna has been a great host and would go an extra mile to make your experience a delightful one.

    Sneh2017-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Just like the amazing place, rachna was also a wonderful host. Had an amazing time. Great scenic beauty. If you want to relax, KMR villa is the perfect place. As far as host is concerned, rachna has taken care of everything. Thanx rachna for being the lovely host. See you soon.

    Our cottage is located amidst the lush green mountains with a view of the "Anna erangal lake "
    Cosy independent cottages surrounded by lush gree mountains with a view of the "annaerangal" lake . Total area of the propety is around 3.00 acres so lots of space for my guests to relax and enjoy
    Chinnakanal is often know as the heart of Munnar. You get to see the gigantic panoromic view of the tea gardens of Munnar in this side only . Places of interest within 5kms of vicinity include - lokart view point - harrisons malayalam tea platation view - annaerrangal dam view and dam boating - annerangal organic and spice garden tour - periyakanal water falls - "kollkukumalae" jeep safari - "meeshapullimala " trekking
  • Value for money. I cannot expect anymore than what I have been offered for the money I paid. I painted a picture in my mind about the location of the cottage as secluded but when I got there, it was surrounded by few houses. I wouldn't not blame them but would be nice to see photos uploaded with what the place actually looks like! Otherwise safe and clean place to stay :) no complaints

    Surya2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Good place. The host was really friendly and helped around with every query and stay. Would recommend this place to travellers.

    Dhiren2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • I have been to Munnar several times.syams place is actually brilliant option for those people opt for a place distant from town.its actually calm and settled. I should say about the breakfast idly sambar was the best in my recent times. Real peaceful place. Thank you shyam :) :)

    Safal2017-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was clean, tidy and very hospitable. The staff were friendly and courteous and well cooked homely food was available on order. Hot water was also available 24x7. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wishes to have a pleasant stay at Munnar. I would definitely visit this place again.

    Vijayakumar2017-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • It was really nice stay..check in was quite fast..and we got clear info about route by the host..not find any difficulty to find the place. Have little issues with WiFi ,got it rectified in 2-3 hours..really pleasant place. Nice view from the place..we ordered non veg dinner which was awesome. Rooms were really clean.overall quite good experience

    Sarat2017-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Munnar (the place) is so beautiful and so is this place, neat and clean with no botherations of any kind. PROS: 1. Shyam is excellent in communication. He responded very effectively on phone and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). 2. The cook is EXCELLENT. Made lovely home style breakfast and dinner. And the servings were very generous and on time every day ! 3. Ample and good parking space for a lot of vehicles. 4. Room was clean and bathroom had hot water all day. 5. TV had all the HD channels and other amenities were also good. CONS: 1. This is a regular resort (3-star, my guess) called Regalia Munnar and not “Shyam’s Place" as listed (no where it says this in the listing)... Its available on OYO Rooms and other booking sites also under this name. 2. Wifi was not working in the Room (For me Shyam had specially arranged a Jio Wifi in the room), but I did notice others having issues with this. All in all, apart from a bit misleading listing (of hiding place’s name)... I think this place did everything correct and would recommend it for both family and solo travellers, specially for the home-style food ! Cheers

    Rishi2017-09-30T00:00:00Z

    1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Sleeps 2 + 1 (INR 500/guest/night for the +1 guest)- George's Robusta Hivehomes George's cottages are located in a 4.5 acre property with rotational plantations. The Kabini river flows 200 meters away
    The cottage is located in a 4.5 acre property with rotational plantations like ginger, tapioca, yam, etc along with rubber and coffee and scores of Mahagony trees in a village called Bavali near the town of Katikulam about 10 kms from Mananthwady. The property is just off the highway at the entrance of Kerala on the Mysore-Mananthwady Road.
    Wynad District is a bio-diverse region spread across 2,132 square km on the lofty Western Ghats, Wynad is one of the few districts in Kerala that has been able to retain its pristine nature. Hidden away in the hills of this land are some of the oldest tribes, as yet untouched by civilization. And the very first prehistoric engravings in Kerala discovered in the foothills of Edakkal and around Ambukuthimala bear testimony to a pre-historic culture dating back to the Mesolithic Age. Strikingly scenic, it is known for its sub-tropical savannahs, picturesque hill stations, sprawling spice plantations, luxuriant forests and rich cultural traditions. A holistic confluence of wilderness, history and culture, Wayanad is located on the southern tip of the magnificent Deccan plateau. There are two cottages which can house 2 guests each. You can also avail the facility of adding an extra bed on the floor. The salient features of this cottage are given below. While doing so we want to be transparent and as close to the real situation so that above everything else you will have an honest value-for-money experience. We have attempted to focus on cleanliness and hygiene without compromise on reasonable physical comfort to rest, relax and enjoy the silence. We hope that you will reciprocate the same while staying there. As for the food, it is our intention to provide you a tasty palette.
  • The place is amazing

    Anandha Padmanaban2017-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place is literally awesome. Silent, pristine and breathtaking. The caretakers are friendly enough, though there is a language barrier to talk to the caretakers. Fortunately we had our cab driver to our rescue. Rest everything was perfect

    Ankit2017-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • George's cottage is nice little place in the middle of the fields, surrounded by lush green. We could hear Kabini river flowing just down the road. Mathai, our host, was very welcoming and Vinod, the caretaker and Mini, our cook were amazing. They made our stay very pleasant. Mini is a good cook, we enjoyed some tasty Kerala cuisines. It is quite close to the forest, a short drive away. Deer and elephants are common site and we also happened to see some birds and other wildlife. We hope to go back again.

    Kiran2017-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to escape from the busy city life and just relax at a calm and serene place, then this place does the job quite well. Located at a hamlet pretty close to the forest, my wife and I were refreshed after our stay of 3 days. We explored the countryside on our own. Came across some wildlife close to hamlet. Relaxed by the riverside and ate some really good food. The caretaker's wife really knows how to cook. We preferred to eat at George's itself since it was so tasty. We ate out just once at one of the villages which was pretty good too. We visited during March, it was pretty hot but the rooms are air conditioned so no complaints. The caretaker also arranged for a bonfire dinner at the edge of the property overlooking the forest. The property is very well maintained and comfortable. If you are looking to be one with nature you must visit the place.

    Pratham2017-03-28T00:00:00Z

    Arun2017-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • The facility is as described. A very peaceful place. Cottages have well equipped kitchen and we'll maintained washrooms. The caretaker family stays nearby and provides nice home made food @reasonable price. You can visit Nagarhole National park, Waynad National park. Many places in Waynad can be covered with in 40 km. The place is ideal if you want to relax and enjoy village life.

    Sanjeev2016-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • The location was a little difficult to find but we were helped by the owner to locate the house. The caretaker came to escort us. The house was as it looks in the picture and even more beautiful with the surrounding. It is definitely worth it to go here and spend some quality time. The caretaker has difficulty in understanding english but that was over compensated with his hospitality. Also the surrounding regions is a forest, so you can actually spot Deers and other wild animals if you roam around and lucky.

    Salisbury Manor is a home stay located in Marayoor, Kerala. It is part of High range area, close to Munnar. We try to provide a homely atmosphere for those who stay. The place is between Munnar, Chinnar and Kanthalloor.
    We have four private rooms which has attached bath with all amenities accommodating 2 people. The listing is for the entire house. It has a fully functional kitchen. Food is not included and can be sourced from nearby restaurants.
    Marayoor boasts of good hiking trails and serene interaction with nature and friendly local communities. Game drives can be arranged to visit the Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary.
  • The caretaker was very active in giving us directions to the house and explained all the facilities in detail. It was a very peaceful neighborhood and an amazing garden for our use. It is around 1.5 hours away from Munnar so you stay away from all the noise and crowd of Munnar township. Mr. Sreejesh informed us regarding the places to visit and also accompanied us in some of them. Overall a very pleasant experience for my entire family and I will strongly recommend this place to others.

    Sukadeb2015-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • A very good house. We really enjoyed. The place is well maintained. Sreejith is very helpful and gave us a good tour of the place along with his colleague. He was available whenever we needed. The amenities are good. Only feedback is to have a water filter so we don't have to trouble Sreejith to buy water. Also the garden can be maintained better there is opportunity to convert it to a play area or something similar. Thanks Gaurav

    Gaurav2016-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, beautiful landscaping. A little difficult to find, but close to walk to main road / restaurants once you are there. Right across from children's park-nature reserve. Big space with 4 separate locking bedrooms with bathrooms. Very well maintained, clean. Helpful caretaker. If you have a big group this is reasonable value.

Caretaker was really helpful and made it possible to have our first bonfire! :) Though it's little far from Munnar but if you are planning for a long and peaceful stay this is the place!!

    Namit2015-12-23T00:00:00Z

  • Totally impressed by the place and hospitality! Rider's Cafe is a beautiful cottage converted from a heritage bungalow in the middle of a lush green forest area. There are couple of bungalows and small houses in the neighborhood which will make you feel safe, in case you are travelling with family. Suhail, the caretaker, is a really kind person. He was helpful and always have a smile on his face. He was available to us 24*7, literally. Anish is a really good host and not only helped us with stay but offered with an itinerary as well for our days in Munnar and rest of the trip. We did much of what he suggested, and it was an overwhelming experience. You should also ask him to offer you the cab service of Belmin. Belmin was with us and his Swift car through five days and he was the perfect guide and photographer we got. He drives really well and is helped us with luggage, food places and took us around describing details of each forest too. A great experience, and we recommend stay at Anish's cottage.

  • Excellent location. Once in the Munnar area this location is well placed for access to multiple spots that you would want to visit. Anish is a wonderful host and takes personal interest in the specifics. How many times would you encounter a person genuinely interested in making your trip a success. He went out of the way to take us to spots of interest. Genuine, Grounded, What you see is what you get, Friendly, in summary

  • Anish and Sohail are amazing host and whole journey behind this place, Rider's cafe, is an inspiration. Would surely recommend this place to anyone visiting Munnar. Anish went out of his way to help us around in every way. About the place.. it is as good as shown in pictures. If you are looking forward to experience tranquility of Kerela, this is the place to be. You can rent a bike/car to get around or even public transport is available. Food is really good. PS - you can even see fireflies around the cottage. It's was a big deal for me !

  • I travelled to Munnar with my friend and we had a really comfy stay. The rooms were big and clean, the bathroom was clean too. The staff were all very friendly and helpful; Anish is a cool guy to meet with.

The host is always reachable and ready to provide travel tips and suggestions. The restaurant offers good quality food and excellent service. The cottages are well maintained , neat and very clean. Overall, we had an awesome and memorable stay attributable primarily to the helpful and positive attitude of the host.

  • My mum, dad and I enjoyed our stay in Anish's cosy cottages. Anish, the host is a genuine, lovely and thoughtful person who goes out of his way to make you feel at home and help you organise activities. The caretaker was also wonderful and put in so much effort to make sure we were comfortable, well fed and having a great Munnar experience. The food prepared at the riders club is some of the best food I have had in India. Everything was so fresh and delicious, especially the fried rice!

  • Nice food. Quite location but little far from Munnar. Host was friendly and guided us to visit best places in Munnar. And also helped us to get a driver on short notice.

    Mary's place 'John's Villa' took me back to my childhood days, when I used to visit my grandparents in a village they used to live. I felt an aura of peace and homely feeling the moment I stepped into…
