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

A chance meeting on the bus from Kottayam to Kumily led to us staying at this delightful homestay with welcoming hosts Zach and Ramani. We were lucky enough to have the upstairs area to ourselves which included a lounge with TV and small kitchen area with tea and coffee making facilities. Our room was very clean with very comfortable beds.... More

Through a recommendation we stayed here just the one night with a small group of friends; a fantastic choice with great food and hosts. They were genuinely lovely people who helped us discover the local area. Ask Koshy about Spice Land!!!! Chris and Claire, UK
