Mr and Mrs Cyriac made me feel very welcome. The room was large with a comfortable bed and modern bathroom. The food was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the Kerala breakfasts with coffee from the owner's plantation.

A beautiful, immaculately maintained spacious bungalow with 5 rooms, part of a spice farm, pepper drying on sheets laid out on the drive. Soli a very gracious host and wife Dolly, who is a wonderful cook. We recommend the spice tour and a visit to the extensive spice shop, off the general tourist trail, good place for stocking up.

This was my wife's and myself first experience of a home stay as part of a Citrus Holidays tour of Kerala. Our room was clean and tidy with a balcony overlooking the owners spice garden. The food cooked by the owners wife Dolly was excellent and the home style of Indian cooking made a pleasant change from the restaurant food... More

We had a great welcome from the charming owner and wife of Pepper County Home Stay. Recovering from a horrid illness, I was welcomed into this friendly home stay. An omelette was produced and I recovered in cool comfort in the middle of lovely countryside. In the evening we were met by the owner on a walk through his plantation... More

Delightful Stay. We could not have asked for more personal attention at this homestay, particularly as my husband was unwell during the 2 day stay. They provided thoughtful and special help even checking whether our room light was on in the middle of the night. Rooms and food delightful and we always enjoy the opportunity to talk with other guests.... More

I stayed here for one night with my family on 30 Oct 2014. I selected based on reviews on trip advisor and I found it more than expected. The property is actually their luxurious bungalow constructed for their family and now they are running home stay. The location is good, ambience is excellent. The room was clean and homely having...

Pepper County totally exceeded our expectations. We wish we could stay there longer! The rooms were so clean and fancy, much nicer than other B&Bs! The entire property with its lush gardens is very peaceful and beautiful. I can't say enough great things about the food and the service - this is by far one of the best homestays we... More

We spent two nights here last week as part of an 11-day tour of Kerala. Everything was absolutely spot-on. Our room was in a newly-built annex and we were impressed with both the room itself and the very friendly welcome we received from the owner. Our balcony looked out onto the seven-acre pepper/cardamom plantation, with plenty of birdlife in the... More

We stayed at Pepper County for two nights last month as part of a tour of Kerala. There were about three other couples staying at the homestay when we were there. The rooms are ensuite and are spacious and well appointed as are the other areas of the homestay. Very relaxing. The owner also showed us around his adjoining spice... More
