My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Vanilla County and will definitely come back. Our only regret was to only stay for one night. Our host were so warm and welcoming that they alone made it worth the visit! The tent we stayed was very cosy and the food cooked was gorgeous. Many thanks for these wonderfull memories...

We stayed as a family over New Year,with Vanilla County living up to expectations giving us an unforgettable experience. If you want to experience India in a genteel manner this is the place. The rooms were comfortable,very clean and quiet. We enjoyed learning about the plantation, our walk through it and the fresh water swimming at the end! A trip... More

This place is simply amazing! I spent christmas evening with my family there, and it will forever stay with me. First things first though. The rooms are well equiped and beds are big and comfortable. Bathrooms are fully functional and even with hot water. The host couple (Baby Michael and Rani) are warm and welcoming. Baby Michael will tell you... More

Sadly we were only able to stay one night at this wonderful place but could have easily stayed so much longer. Matthew was so welcoming and hospitable and his wife’s food so delicious, this place comes highly recommended in my books. We packed in a tour of the spice garden and hike to the fresh water rock pools for a... More

We didn’t plan to stay in Vanilla County but by god we’re pleased we did. Discovered in the depths of the Western Ghats this stunning property is worth every penny and every extra mile. Amazing home cooked food and personal service delivered by Matthew and his wife Rani made our stay immensely enjoyable.

We stayed for two nights at this beautiful villa. The house is gorgeous and we had a room in the little outbuilding which suited us very well. The rooms are very well done - clean and comfortable. There's a sense of luxury which is welcomed after the long drive. There is a sense of being part of a group as... More

If we had a problem staying here, it was just that we only had two nights. Baby Matthew and his household made us feel entirely welcome and showed us the other side of Kerala from the hotels and tourist routines. There's a reason there are so many good reviews of Vanilla County - it is one of the best experiences... More

We loved our time with Rani and Matthew in the luxurious accommodation of Vanilla County.

If you live in a major city this could be one of the most peaceful locations you may ever visit with two of the kindest people you could ever meet. The house, built by Baby's father, is deep in the forest with the sound of a stream that runs right next to it. A more idilic setting would be very... More
