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

Stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A delightful family welcome with very comfortable accommodation. Would definitely recommend this home stay and spice plantation. Building additions will further enhance this attractive property set in beautiful scenery.

The hosts at this homestay were really attentive (a little too attentive for our preference) and the house was lovely. There was no fridge in our room, but we were able to keep drinks in the house fridge and ask for them when wanted. When we were on our own, the food was excellent. However, when we were joined by...

Lovely, brand new and very modern rooms in a good location on a little slope outside Komily town. Mr Cyriac couldn't have done more to make our stay pleasant. A tour of the gardens was very informative and thorough. Would recommend getting out in the evening for dinner and seeing some of Komily town.

I visited this place in March 2015 as a family (2 children). I thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The hosts Mr. Cyriac and Dolly are very welcoming and accommodating. The food is worth dying for - don't even think about eating anywhere else at Thekkady. The house and the rooms are spacious and clean. The spice plantations around the house are... More

The accommodation has been newly built to a very high standard with teak doors and windows and marble bathrooms and our room was very spacious . It has 3 (or 4, not sure) rooms and a very friendly host but the highlight of this place was the amazingly good food cooked for us breakfast and evening and shared with the... More

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.
