We had a good experience in this place. The view was gud and we spotted Wild Boar and black tail monkey and many birds. It is slightly scary at night as the room beside was not occupied when we boarded the place.It is a heaven during daytime. There is no restaurant attached, so you need to cross the road to... More

Do not stay here - there are much better options for the money! The rooms were not very clean, the shower was broken, the fan was very noisey and looked like it was about to fall down. We asked for toilet roll and was told that we needed to provide our own. There was no protection against insects and we... More

This homestay is located in vicinity of Periyar Tiger Reserve entrance. We had a room in a newer part of the resort, on the 2nd floor with a balcony and hanging chairs overlooking the garden and tiger reserve. Older ones didn't look so nice as those facing the reserve. Room was clean, ok furnished and quite spacious, although it did... More

what is written by dear sambit is quite true! I had the same bad experiences.... Want to add one more that the drinking water provided was very smelly even i forgot to complaint about this to the owner lady. the only plus point is the limited 4 rooms with balcony view to the wide forest. poonam/delhi

The rooms lack many basic amunities for the price like tv, mosquito coils ,any sort of closet, all time hot water availability. The plug points in our room were not working.... More

Very nice, big room with the view in to the lush greenery. I'm sure the daughter will take over one day! She was so nice, but the mom too. We got some good recommendations which were very helpful and best was the recommendation of the cooking class at "BBQ Thekkady". Thank you very much for that.
