A little tricky to find so use GPS if possible and try not to arrive in the dark... but luckily the owner kindly drove out and met us late at night! Otherwise location was great for us (with a driver). We were grateful just to have been found in the pitch dark maze of the mountains, but to top it... More

Stayed with Santosh & family ( as a couple )for 3 nights on arrival to Kerala, India. Cannot recommend this homestay highly enough! Extremely clean, comfortable and attractive room set on a veranda overlooking beautiful scenery; Fabulous breakfast and introduction to traditional Keralan/Indian food; felt 'taken under the family's wings' in a way, having been invited to and attending their...

Great place, lovely host, very clean and homely stay. Mr. Santosh and his family take real good care of the visitors. The calmness and serenity of the place makes it a perfect choice for a break from the hustle of the city life.

A spot slightly lower than the town of Munnar means the the view from the Shade is perfect. With clouds hanging above, a wonderful balcony and roof terrace provide breath taking views across the valley. Mr. Santosh is a peaceful and gentle host. His home cooked meals are delightful in the morning and reasonably priced at night. The upstairs room... More

We had a great stay at the sure when we visited Munnar. The rooms were very clean and generous in size, the views from the balcony were like something from a holiday brochure! The family were very accommodating and cooked us delicious breakfasts which were included in the price. Dinner is optional and we ate dinner there one night-it was... More

The Shade is a pretty new and very clean guest house which belongs to a very nice and pleasant family. We had a beautiful view from our room and we could enjoy home made breakfast during two mornings. I really recommend that guest house :)

We spent 2 nights in this beautiful, clean, quiet home. It is away from the rush and noise of Munnar. Ours was an upstairs room with stunning views over the garden and out to the hills beyond, it was beautiful. Breakfast and the evening meal were delicious and the family friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
