We stayed at Olives Homestay for three days and two nights, during our recent trip to Wayanad.

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.
