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.

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!
