A nicely maintained, thoughtful homestay in Wayanad. Quite close to the main town still peaceful and serene. The rooms are at different levels and give a plush feeling inside.... Bijju and family are a perfect host and leave no stone unturned to make your stay memorable. Food is good and is served with lot of warmth... some indoor and outdoor... More

My wife and I stayed here over a weekend. It was our first trip to Wayanad and we really liked the warm hospitable nature of the hosting couple. Mr. Biju helped us with directions to nearby places, he's also aware of timings of most nearby places. If you're looking for roaming around Wayanad, by all means choose this well-connected place....

Biju and his family are great hosts - they are patient, friendly and almost always in the background - even though this isnt a hotel - it is their home they are sharing with us. Unlike most homestays though, Biju's experience in the hotel industry has guided him in the construction of the rooms - each room has privacy and... More

Hats off to Mr. Biju and his family for maintaining the property so well and the warm hospitality that is extended to all the guests. It is a top notch facility which is far better than the high-end resorts in and around the area. Coming to the food - it was pure Bliss!!! Simply put, Olives is the best home... More

If you take 10+ years of professional hotel management experience and blend it with the innate sense of hospitality of a traditional Indian family what you get is Olives. But be ready to be disappointed with potentially most of your future Homestays after staying in olives because they would raise the bar so high that only people with obsessive compulsive... More

We planned a weekend getaway to Wayanad in September 2014 and stayed over at Olives home stay. Truly a splendid experience and each one of us felt a home away from home. Mr.Biju and his family were so warm and hospitable am sure we will always remember them. Rooms were wonderful and extremely comfortable. Food, mmmmm well if you like... More

We stayed at Olives Homestay for three days and two nights, during our recent trip to Wayanad. This was our first stay at a homestay and I must admit that we were a little apprehensive about the experience. Mr. Biju Thomas and his family, put us completely at ease from the time we showed up at their lovely and warm... More

A very warm, hospitable and an informal stay with a personal touch. Great ambience and beautiful rooms. The breakfast was delicious . To keep it simple, it's a home away from Home. It's not just about holiday destination but also where we stay. I think it deserves more than 5 stars. I am planning to make this an annual affair.
