This place was everything we wanted from a homestay. Location - convenient short 5 minute walk into town or to coast. Dal Roti is a great restaurant by the way, just around the corner. Rooms - I think there are only 3 rooms in this homestay. The 2 we saw were very spacious and clean. We were very comfortable here.... More

I returned to Sithara this season after having also stayed there in 2011. I stayed with my family (husband and two children), and we really enjoyed Harry and Mercy's lovely homestay. The double family room (with separate entrance and a balcony) is great value! The hosts are very helpful, friendly and easy going and our kids loved them. Don't cheat... More

We had a lovely stay, harry and his family were very welcoming. They gave us a large, clean, comfortable room with a clean en suit. Ac and non ac is available, we opted for non ac. The breakfasts on the reviews sound lovely, but unfortunately we didn't receive a fancy one. Overall, we had a pleasant stay in beautiful surroundings.... More

Ill admit this the sitara home stay is definitely nothing compared to the Ritz but it has something very special. Evey morning when you wake up you smell that lovely fresh air especially when it rains in the early mornings. Then you get that traditional south Indian breakfast. I simply loved and honestly I never thought that I could expect... More
