After reading the super positive reviews about Olives, we zeroed in on booking Olives to celebrate our wedding anniversary in April '15. We were welcomed by pleasantly surprising weather in Wayanad with mild showers and Olives was the icing on top of the cake. We were received by Biju and Raji, the 2 extremely hospitable people who run the great... More

Tripadvisor ratings, clear and friendly communication for booking on the previous day are what lured us to stay for a night at this place. That we had our own vehicle made it easy getting to the place, which has been constructed into a clearing on a small hillock. The decor that seemed like wanting to narrate a tale did unravel...

I had travelled to Wayanad , and this was the best part of the whole trip. I had my doubts on such high ratings given by other people in Tripadvisor, but the stay is worth the money. Aunty's food is heavenly and we couldn't stop overeating.The room etc was very clean and the surroundings peaceful. It is also not very... More

We recently visited this place in the beautiful district of Kerala.. I must say, I had a wonderful experience. The rooms were comfortable and had a beautiful decor. They had a buffet system and the food was awesome. They served authentic Kerala dishes and did justice to their beautiful cuisine. The Family was very warm and welcoming. Biju attended to... More

Recently had a 2 day stay at Olive HomeStay. Was keeping high expectations from this place as it has been top rated at Trip Advisor. It was easy to locate this place on Gmap but we were not too joyed when we reached there. First, the view from your room isn't too fascinating. Wayanad is such a beautiful place and... More

I must say, the room I had at Olives was very beautiful - very large, very clean, with a separate sitting room on a level above the bedroom, with a nice view, and a private balcony. The room, however, is set up strangely in terms of power. When you leave the room, all power shuts off. This is perfectly understandable... More

What a lovely couple who run this Homestay, nothing is too much trouble. The evening meal was generous and homely. An aircon in the room would have made the stay more comfortable and we had trouble getting the shower to work. We stayed in the room at the top which provided a great view but a bit tedious to get...
