I and my wife stayed for 2 nights in November 2014. We were very much delighted by the location of this home-stay near to Periyar Wild Life Sanctuary. Mr Rajesh and his family were very cordial. We were allotted Room No.5 on our request. This room is simply awesome!

we stayed here in April, the room opens to a beautiful view of the jungle and kids were so excited spotting wild boars, rabbits, deers and birds at the wide open space between the property and the jungle. The rooms are spacious, bathroom is clean.... The host, Rajesh and his family were very friendly and helpful... This place has limited... More

We chose this place based on tripadvisor feedback. We were very happy to go with it ! A simple homestay with good hospitality and great price ! Couldn't have asked for more. The host Rajesh made our stay comfortable. There are many restaurants just 1-2 minutes away from the place, where you can have breakfast and lunch. Great value for... More

Recommended by our friendly and honest taxi driver Viadeesh Bao. This is a great homestay. The owners are very helpful and all the family are charming. The rooms are spacious and clean. We had a first floor room looking out on the jungle, we were lucky to see the wildlife on several occassions, boar, deer, mongoose and monkeys. This is... More

One of our most memorable stay while in Kerala. Beuatiful & big rooms at decent price. Friendly owners make it a really homestay. The best part of it is lake facing doors. You can see lake and forest. Even animals walk around the property which is really an experience. ( Obviously you are safe @ height ). Lake facing rooms... More

I had stayed for a day and found the owner of the property cooperative and very much helpful.Rooms are spacious and location is nearer to sight seeing locations.The view from the rooms was awesome.Luckily we had got the rooms on first floor facing the Jungle area.

My guests stayed at this homestay in March 2015. Economical cost, wonderful host, Rajesh, who would go out of his way to help. Even my telephonic communication and than on e-mail with him was very pleasant. The property is right in the jungle, as the name suggests.

Cheap and basic but the rooms face out towards the jungle and you get nice views of occasional wildlife and good sunsets. Rooms are a reasonable size and whilst fairly basic are functional and good value for money. No restaurant here but loads of food to chose from on the street the hotel is on. The room had a ceiling... More

Have been here couple of times and can't think of other choices. Great stay and Mr.Rajesh, the host does a great job. He guides the best things, from food to things to do! Cleanly maintained. The rooms faces the meadow where you can spot deer, if ur lucky!

We booked two rooms last week,the rooms were clean and spacious. The backside of the homestay is facing the jungle and the front side is near to the boating entrance. Mr & Mrs Rajesh were very helpful.
