We had a wonderful couple of days here and would have stayed longer if we could. The rooms are delightful and finished to an amazing standard. Cyriac and Dolly went out of their way to make our stay special, with Dolly even making me a birthday cake with a day's notice, much to our surprise and delight! They are truly... More

Loved this place and could have stayed longer than the 2 nights we did. Cyriac and Dolly were very good hosts and made us feel welcome. Dolly's food (particularly the breakfasts) is excellent - but be warned, the portions are HUGE so go to meals hungry! The setting is stunning, within the spice plantation Cyriac farms. The sounds are amazing... More

I'm Rajiv. I traveled Kerala with my wife and two kids..We stayed here for 3 days. As soon as we reached here we were mesmerized by the view around Pepper County. Every thing around it was eye candy. The Lush greenery around it was enough to give us the swing of Nature, More over it continued to rain as long... More

This was easily the best stay we had on our tour of Kerala. The accommodation was truly excellent, all fitted out to a high standard and our hosts, Cyriac and Dolly were genuinely attentive to our every need. Very highly recommended. Gill and Joe Heath. Staying with friends Linda and Mike April 2015.

The accommodation was very basic with few frills, we had to make our own beds and the towels were not replaced during our stay. Apart from a silly misunderstanding at breakfast, the hosts were very welcoming although the food was adequate at best. The TripAdvisor reviews had been generally glowing, so we were rather disappointed. Perhaps we have been spoilt... More

We stayed here in April 2015 and found the People extremely kind and helpful. My wife had eaten something which disagreed with her the day before and the manager insisted on sleeping in the adjacent room in case she needed assistance during the night. The setting was nice and the room was clean and comfortable. Wifi was good outside the... More

I must say that me and my wife enjoyed the stay in this wonderful place to the utmost. The only regret is that we stayed only for a night... wish we could have stayed more. A cosy homestay in the midst of spice plantation lets you feel the freshness of the greenery. The rooms are so clean, the wooden doors... More

Absolutely wonderful, Cyriac and Dolly are really lovely people and welcome you into their home like relatives. Nothing is too much trouble from offering to wash and dry your clothes after the elephant washing to making you cups of tea when ever you want. The food was the best of any where we stayed while in Kerala, beautiful home cooked... More

We stayed two nights during a recent tour of Kerala and thought the accommodation and food were the best that we had during our trip. Cyriac was an attentive and thoughtful host and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Whilst we were there we visited that Kathakali theatre and Martial Arts performance In Kumily but the highlight was an elephant ride... More
