Pros: Home food Easy to reach from kalpetta Cons: You cannot expect services which you get in resorts / hotels like room service for food and Lunch you need to look out. You... More

+ves: 1. Excellent rooms. Beautifully designed rooms. Highlight was the "open to sky" bath section with enough privacy. 2. Good food. 3. Good host couple and helpful staff. Mr. Biju was very helpful and hospitable. 4. Excellent view from all rooms and from the general dining area. 5. Home stay located near city center but still seems closer to nature.

From welcoming and friendly hosts who make you feel at home in no time to great food and cozy, beautiful rooms, Olives Homestay had it all! This was a great place to just relax and get away from the city and the accompanying noise and inconvenience. A truly lovely experience! Definitely recommended. We will come back :)

A really well thought of arrangement to give a true homestay experience, Mr Biju Thomas has been a great host for our 3 night stay. Being in the Kerala, our first request was to have a pure Kerala cuisine experience during our stay. This was executed with such fervour from day one, that we were really overjoyed. The room we...
