Koshy's Homestay is convenient, clean, comfortable and in a quiet area of Kumily. It is right next to the elephants and the theatre and in easy reach of Periyar national park. Hosts Zac and Raema are a delightful couple who provide breakfast and an evening meal if required.

Thank you so much for our wonderful stay in your home. Thekkady is quite a busy little town and staying at Koshys provided a welcome relief from the chaos. Ultimately when one travels in India it is important to realise that things like no hot water and loss of electricity are normal so people should not let such experiences negatively... More

Just one of those lovely places where you feel at home in Kerala India. Coshes' is a small 3 roomed homestay with delightful hosts who want you to experience the best of Thekkady. Before we arrived Koyshy made sure we knew what was on offer in the National Park and pre-organised our Bamboo Rafting and Trek. He also organised our... More

I would like to thank both Zach and Ramani for a wonderful and memorable time at their homestay. I travelled with an organisation called World Challenge last month and this was one of the best accommodation we had when travelling Kerala. It is very convenient since it's very close to many attractions such as Connemara Tea Factory, the Spice Gardens... More

Zac and Ramani accommodated our large group making us feel completely at home in our new surroundings. They were so attentive to our every need, the house was kept neat and clean, and the food was incredible. There is also so much to do and see in the surrounding area.

Stayed here last week and I can't fault the place. We had a very warm welcome from Zack and his wife, and nothing was too much effort. They offered us food and drink and assistance in organising some activities. They were very helpful. The rooms were comfortable and clean and breakfast was faultless. Great scrambled eggs by the way. If... More

Recently visited with a school group from World Challenge. Was a little cramped with 16 people. Found Zac and Romini to be wonderful hosts. If you were going in a smaller group the place would be fantastic. The meals were great, ask Romini to make traditional Indian food. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Koshy's homestay as a large group of 16, but there was room made for all of us, as well as delicious meals (local or western, upon request) for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each of the rooms were comfortable, spacious and well furnished, and very clean. Zach and Romani were so kind to all of us during our... More
