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

Simply beautiful and wonderful place. Stayed here many years back but giving a review only now. Simply the best people and such a beautiful place, Waynad. I will never forget the amazing trip to the secluded waterfall in the rainforest. Excellent food as well.

We stayed at Bena's home for 3 days. She was so easy to deal with from the beginning and even organised us a taxi from Mysore to her place. She was so welcoming when we arrived and every time I asked for something she replied "no need to ask, this is your home now too". The room was so nice,... More

This homestay is clearly secluded from any major road: what a pleasure to arrive at this lovely homestay for a few days of peace! The rooms are simple but well-maintained and definitely spoteless. The room rate includes all meals, which are tastefully homemade prepared by Beena. The owners are friendly and welcoming, always ready to advise on activities around or... More

Varnam's Homestay was an amazing stay, we were well looked after by the family. We were very lucky that it was holiday season and the whole family were home, they took us to watch a film and showed us around the farm and explained what all the fruits and veg were, and we got to sample lots. We were lucky... More

I came for 3 days and stayed for 6. Quiet, safe, peaceful and clean change from everyday India. Beena is a whirlwind taking care of your every need. She also grows most of the food for your meals. Varghese is a fountain of knowledge on Indian lore and local customs. I will return.
