We arrived at Evergreen Estate Bungalow and were immediately given the warmest of welcomes. The room was delightful ,spacious and very comfortable. George showed us around the area and took us to a rubber processing plant. He is a most knowledgeable and interesting host who has written books about the pioneering planters who came to South India. The food was... More

Our stay was wonderful from start to finish. George, Anju and Prasaad have a wonderful eye for detail and casual luxury. The food was the best of our trip and George did everything in his power, including securing our next booking for us, to ensure that we wanted for nothing at his beautiful home. The stay was completely enjoyable and... More

The Evergreen Estate was our first upscale homestay experience, and at a discounted rate (since we missed one meal and didn’t need any complimentary beers) of around INR 5000 per couple per room, I felt we had done pretty well for ourselves. Bordering on deal-induced smarminess, I headed onwards to a fabulous home-cooked meal. While the meal proved too spicy... More

We stayed with George and his family for two night in his very stylish 1950s estate bungalow. George took us on various trips, including to his uncle's house, and informed us about the history of the nearby rubber plantations. The food provided was lovely and served in a fabulous dining room.

(this review was from a stay in 2009, before the Homestay was added to TA; my original review is in the TA forum) Staying here was quite by chance, but turned out to be a highlight of my trip. I was cycling in kerala and the journey between Kumily and Kumarakom is around 120km - too much to do in... More

I stayed with George and Anju in September as part of a longer homestay trip around southern India. Their house is set in a wonderful location in the middle of a rubber plantation. The couple are extremely hospitable and are happy for you to be integrated into their family life but also give you time and space to relax on... More
