The homestay is clean and the food is nice, albeit the portions and drinks tiny. Asking or more seemed a little embarrassing.
However, beware of the advice being offered by Saj. He told me I was too fat to take an Indian bus to Munnar. That I had to take a taxi for 2500rps and that I should have the taxi for 2 days to sightsee whilst I was there! What a joke,Im tall and a size 18 (uk) I took the bus to munnar (82rps) and fitted just fine. Also found out that a taxi can be booked for 1500rps to take you there and 1500 per day if you want a taxi in Munnar. Seeing as this was my first trip to India I am so glad I stuck to my guns and ignored his advice. Al he wanted was his cut. Really disappointing. I wouldn't book anything he suggests or helps with, as youll more than likely be paying double.
Avoid the room at the back, no light, dark and you cant open any windows or door due to mosquitoes. Actually the mosquitoes here were rampant, make sure to wear insect repellent at breakfast time.

Thank you for your time for this review. I am not shocked to read this review as I expected this from you as you had threatned me about your poor review, especially when I questioned you about the 2 lost new bath towels from your room on the check day as House keeeping staff noticed the missing towels.
You have behaved very rudely and unfriendly to me, my staff and to my entire family incluidng my 11 year old daughter Natasha. Your stubborn character were unacceptable in any condition at our home, but we just ignored it for smooth running of hospitality and service to other in house guests due to the peak season.
Your presence at our home made my 11 year old Natasha so scared as you have shouted at her and also shouted to another guest (irish lady) and banged door on her face, who came to help Natasha. You banged the room door with massive noice all the times even though I had warned you NOT to do the same and the door lock got damaged..
Actually I have offered a cab to Munnar, when you enuire about the same as I felt ordinary Indian bus journy would be difficult and uncomfortable for you as per the reason you have mentioned on your review as you are a tall person with 18 (UK), Yes I have quoted INR for INR 2500/- for a cab and driver, which is cheapest quotation in Forktochi to Munnar as it is located 140kms from Fortkochi and the current taxi cost is INR 2900/- to 3100/-
We always serve breakfasts unlimited quanity with good sized portions and with big glass for serving juices and also extra portions with out any additional charges even it is continental or Local Keralan breakfast, but in your case you used to have 7-9 dosas and Appams daily as you have mentioned those were delicious and had enjoyed with very big smile (You have smiled only during breakfast time to get more food and drinks and never seen you embarrassed )
Please refer the photos of juice glasses on tripadvisor against your false statment about DRINKS TINY.
All the rooms at Sajhome are with power lights, Windows and it is not my fault you could not view those windows even though you stayed 4 nights in such a small room .
Mosquitoes are there in all over the world and all the tourists are aware of mosquitoes in Kochi, that is the reason I had asked you to keep the balcony door closed from -6.00pm till the sun rise as mosquitoes flee into homes during these hours, but you used to keep the door opened always and mosquitoes had a good feast on you, this is because of your rude, stubborn, unfriendly character.
God may bless with you with your good health and thoughts.
