We were a group of girls looking for a bit of wildlife adventure. Reading the reviews and what was posted we decided to spend a few days at Varnam. Owners were nice but most of the time they were not there. It was managed by 1 man who doubled up as driver, caretaker, supplier ... everything. Most of the activities... More

We stayed in Varnam Homestay after a personal recommendation. We could not speak highly enough of it. It is in an incredibly beautiful location on their family farm and garden, the food is fantastic (and plentiful!), they are helpful and will arrange anything for you, and they have the most friendly (and luckiest!) dog in the whole of Kerala.

Went to Wayanad on May 1st 2014. A beautiful home and a nice couple. The property is surrounded with lot of trees and the place is so peaceful. Eat all that you find on the property and just relax in the hammock. The owners Vargheese and Beena were a nice host and take care of the guest so well. The... More

We actually stayed in April, and this was our favourite place in India. Very relaxing, family orientated after a busy 10 days in Northern India this was a hidden paradise. Rooms simple and clean, family beautiful, patient and caring, food fantastic and although we had reservations about a dog, the kids want to go back to visit, mainly to see... More

This is a really idyllic household to stay at in the beautiful Wyanad national park. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and it was great hearing first hand about all of the wildlife in the area. The house is spacious and very comfortable focused on a covered outdoor dining area where we tucked into Beena's delicious home cooking. You feel as... More

Lovely surroundings, well-maintained and clean quarters. Verghese, Beena and Dawn are a thoroughly gentlemanly and welcoming family. Go walking, visit Kuruva island, explore the farm and rice paddies. This is a private residence, so don't treat it like a hotel. Consider it a privilege to live here.

I had been to Varnam 2 months back to pick a guest who wants to be with us for 2 days. When a guest mentions another resort for him to stay, it is natural to discourage him. But the owners of Varnam given the guest a narration of our facility and encouraged them to be with us. I don’t think... More

Me and my partner stayed here when visiting my sister and her partner whilst they were travelling Asia. It was the final stay of 2 weeks in India and provided a welcome relax before we headed home and we stayed for 3 nights. We all throughly enjoyed our stay. The family were lovely - it was very interesting to speak... More

Didn't like anything about this as our experience was pretty bad. Raining all day meant it resulted in dirty pathways and in return dirty rooms. Dining area is out in open which meant we didnt even have a dry seat to sit because of the rain. There was no electricity entire night, with a small child it was nightmare and... More

This place in the middle of the nature makes you forgetting anything. Rooms are nice, and environment is wonderful. The owners are very polite, helpful and good cookers. Bruno, the sweetest dog of India, will join you during a nice walk around. One day we will come back for sure to spend here more than one day!
