Shibu is a decent host and his wife is very hardworking. It is like an apartment complex. The location is average because its one side is busy road and shops (no disturbance due to this because the home stay apartments are at the back of the complex). The other side is greenery as you can see in their pics but... More

We stayed at this homestay in December 2013. The rooms are above basic and very clean. The location is perfect as it's walking distance to the park entrance and the city center. Breakfast which is prepared by the lady of the house herself is fresh, local and authentic and really good. The hotel is on the main road, but you... More

Kerala House is perfectly located overlooking the Periyar Tiger Reserve, so the sounds and sights of the jungle come to your balcony. I saw wild boar, deer, bison, lots of birds and butterflies every day. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, huge rooms and balconies, lots of hot water, and very comfortable beds. Wifi is good too. Mr. Shibu and his... More

Mr. Shibu is a soft spoken gentleman always eager to help. The location of Kerala House is perfect with the Periyar reserve right by their backyard. The rooms are spacious and clean. However, there is nothing much to do in Thekkady apart from the full day safari especially now with the ban on elephant rides.

Had a really nice stay at this place. 1. Shibu & the family are great hosts. He was very helpful and helped us finalize our itinerary. Tea was very good! 2. The place is very well located and well connected. You can ask Shibu to get you an auto. 3. Rooms are clean and spacious.

There is nothing much to do in Thekkady except attempting to be fortunate enough to see wild animals. And I too could hardly experience any wild animals. However, I liked Thekkady because of my stay in Kerala House. I had booked well in advance to get the top floor room which had a huge balcony attached. We stayed there for... More

Looking at the access to this homestay - I was disappointed but once I saw the room - it was a shock. It was simple and spacious and clean toilets. The family that runs it - they are nice. The bring up tea/coffee whenever you need. Very nice. I just have one bad feeling - I never tipped them. But... More

Mr. Shibu thank you for everything you provided on my request. I am travelling with my daughter 3 years and mom 55 years none has any problem. Kerala House is a bit off road to reach but the balcony view of periyar is awesome from 2nd floor. It's like a small hill station mild cold and rain in September and... More

Kerala House is a great place to stay. Rooms are clean, comfortable and with basic facilities. Excellent balcony looking onto the park to see birds, deer and other wildlife. Shibu and team are a great help with excursions and other arrangements.
