The garden setting and community feeling makes this place very special. You can go for nice walks through the fields around the property. Beena is just delighful and will helpfully arrange a safari, rickshaw drivers, etc. The room we stayed in was basic, but I think there is some variety and mostly you want to be in the garden rather...

We arrived at Varnam Homestay at very short notice after we decided to ditch another accommodation in Wayanad District. The family were very helpful in offering us a room. The family as well as the setting (attached spice plantation and rice paddies) were what made our stay wonderful. They were really helpful in organising safari bookings and advising on walks/treks...

We had a nice stay at Varnam homestay for 4 nights. At the beginning we were quite surprised seeing more guest than we expected at a homestay, but still the owners kept the warm and welcoming atmosphere of a homestay. This also reflected on the guests. Everybody was friendly, open and was interested in each other. The food was fresh... More

We stayed here for 7 nights. We had an amazing time! The family are so welcoming and they even made non spicy options for our kids without us having to ask them. Room was great and they helped to organise day trips for everyone. We will go back here as soon as we can!!!

This is one of the more comfortable place I stayed in India. Excellent food, nice and helpful staff, great scenery all around. Beena and Varghese take care of you with a familiar touch. The room was very clean, with hot shower 24h and a well working wi-fi all. The dog Bruno lead you in some walking through the forest. This... More

We just spent 3 nights here. To start with I cannot understand why people would write terrible reviews. This place is fantastic and the hospitality beyond what I expected. The hosts were wonderful and food fantastic. All the travellers ate together and shared stories of their travels. The grounds were lovely with Bruno the dog ready for a tummy rub... More

Excellent hosts, good food, opportunities to visit the local game park or have an escorted walk around the area and the chance to chill out on the lawn in the beauty of Wayanad. Highly recommended. We shall be back.

Had four days here on part of my five week trio to Kerala. Beena and Varghese are the best hosts in India! The food is excellent and there is plenty of it. Also fruit, water and snacks are available all the time. Bruno the dog is way cool as is puppy Choki. Did a safari (one elephant), trip to Kuruva... More
