Staying at Vanilla County was amazing. It is set in a tranquil area of Kerala and the old villa is just incredible. It is run by Baby Mathew and his wife Rani who do nothing other than trying to accommodate your needs. I particularly enjoyed the meals in the outdoor patio. It seems that because it is rather off the... More

Because of a tight travel schedule we only could spend two nights in this wonderful place. This wonderful homestay, an "Italian Agritourismo", offers enough to comfort you for many days. Baby Matthew and his charming wife Rani are both excellent hosts. They are really interested in you and take the time to answer your questions and do suggestions for the... More

We had a truly lovely time at Vanilla County in January. We were fortunate to have their best room "Vanilla" with its own balcony. It was such a calm and relaxing place after 3 busy weeks in India. It was tucked in the rainforest and the birds and bird songs in the morning were amazing, as were all the butterflies.... More

Vanilla County is a beautiful old house, colonial in style with great hospitality from Baby Mathew and his wife. It was lovely and cool and the bedrooms were large and very comfortable, a good night's sleep for us. The food was plentiful and delicious, Keralan food at its best. Our guide Nigu took us to a nearby river to swim... More

We stayed at Vanilla County during the week between Christmas and New Years this year, and we were really pleased. Baby Matthew and his family were accommodating and wonderful. The food was delicious, and the planned activities were great. We booked a bit late, and so the only accommodation option was the tent, but we were really happy with it.... More

Vanilla County is an amazing place. Luxurious and homey. My mom and I stayed in one of the tents. They're really fun and not really tents. They have screen windows with curtains and furniture. The bathroom near the tent has the most beautiful outdoor shower with a tree in it! The whole experience was lovely. Activities all included. Rani is... More

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
