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.

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!

Rooms are big however facilities are basic only. The owner Mr. Rajesh is quite helpful however we had problems in communicating with him. They don't provide... More

This is very close to market , periyar national park and surrounded by natural gardens. the caretaker is very helpful and provided many useful suggestion. Don't mistake as this 6 room home stay has basic facilities only. Would have rated higher if I would have gotten higher floors.
