The place is situated in a very quiet side road, not far from the Elephant Camp. The hosts are very kind, not only that she cooks excellently but with his help we got all kinds of arrangements organised, which helped us to use free time in a very nice way. Basically we had looked for a spot where we could... More

Koshys is a good place to stay, there is lots of space in the bedroom and kitchenette and you can make your own drinks. There is even a tv. Zachariah and his wife were so helpful, arranging programmes, sending out for drinks and finding a good barber for a haircut. The breakfasts were great and they gave use supplies while... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting Periyar National Park and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. We were made to feel very welcome and our hosts couldn't have done more to make us feel at home. The room was very clean and well presented and the communal areas where great to hang around in and plan our day.... More

What one gets out of a home stay depends in part on what one puts into it. One has to be as cheerful and gregarious as one expects one's hosts to be. Ramani and Zachariah, the owners of Dr. Koshy's home stay, didn't keep me at arms length but spent hours chatting with me over breakfasts, teas and a dinner... More

We absolutely loved our time at Koshys Homestay. Finished a 4 day hike/bike tour in Kumily and had a day here, and it was the perfect finish to our long journey on the road. We had the entire top floor: great to have the space outside the bedroom to sit and relax. The building is a walk from plenty of... More

We were given a very warm welcome to this homestay. Rooms are clean, with a spacious living area and wonderful roof terrace for relaxing. The cooking lesson with Mrs Koshy gave us some great insight and the meal we shared with the Koshys was superb. The early morning call from the hornbill was also a nice addition.

Our stay at Koshy's was delightful. Zachariah and Ramani were warm and welcoming. Our favorite part was the cooking demonstration and all the meals. Ramani's cooking was great! Our only complaint was that it was not spicy enough (although we had that complaint just about everywhere we ate - maybe we are super spicy folks). The accommodations were clean and... More

Zach and Ramani are wonderful hosts. Homestay in completely independent from the main house. It can accommodate up to three rooms. It is very closely located to the Periyar Tiger Reserve. Do eat with the Koshys but be prepared that you will receive much more than you will be able to consume! We did a cooking demonstration where you think... More
