This is a great homestay which overlooks a clearing at the edge of the Periyar Tiger Reserve, Rooms are huge and clean, with balcony views of the clearing. I saw mongoose, wild boars and sambar deer, and countless birds. Kumily has a small town feel but there is plenty to do: trekking, boating or walking in the Wildlife Reserve or... More

Went with family First week of April 2015. It's set back from the main road which avoids road traffic noise. There is NO signage or reception to know where to go when you arrive or if you need to ask questions. Parking is on the road if you have a car. Location is very good as you can go walking... More

We booked on the day and there was a little confusion when we arrived after a long drive as they didn't seem to be expecting us... But they were very welcoming and helpful when we'd shown them the reservation confirmation. We got a great room on the second floor which had a lovely view of the nature reserve. There were... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at Kerela House. We had the upstairs rooms overlooking the nature reserve which was fabulous. In the mornings we watched a mother mongoose and her two children playing in the reserve and there is a regular (wild?) boar who came every morning to rumage for food. Also saw a red mongoose and deer and... More

I stayed here in Dec 2014. Rooms are specious and very well maintained. Rooms and toilets are very clean. Room and balcony is well decorated with decent furniture. One should not miss early morning and evening view from balcony. You may get a chance to watch different birds. It is amazing experience. Location is very good as once can go... More

I stopped for 1 night to break the trip from Munnar to Kollam and stayed for 4. Room was spotlessly clean and tidy and the views across to the park we're brilliant. I spent almost one whole day just enjoying the wildlife and grazing activity from my balcony. The cafe across the road and upstairs (Thekkady Cafe) whilst very humble... More

We had a lovely relaxing stay at Kerala House. We sat on our balcony and gazed out at the animals grazing and the lone fisherman netting his catch. Our hosts, Shibu and his wife were charming and attentive. We loved meeting their beautiful children. We had a very large room with a bathroom with lots of hot water. Our reservation... More

Kerala House location is convenient - not right in the middle of the tourist area but an easy walk to restaurants (no food at Kerala House unless you request breakfast) and the reserve itself. It's set back from the main road which avoids road traffic noise, though it is quite near other accommodation and unfortunately there were some loud guests... More

We stayed for five nights in January and found the room to be clean and the bathroom supplied with plenty of hot water. Something that is not always available in many hotels. Shibu was a helpful host and gave us much good advice. We took the 7.30am boat trip at the tiger reserve. In my opinion the hassle really isn't... More
