the room was really clean, the familiy very friendly and we really enjoyed having breakfast (which was very good as well) on the balcony with a great view on the park. The main entrance is just a short walk from the hotel.

This is in a great location in a beautiful setting overlooking the nature reserve. Only a short walk from the reserve entrance where the walking treks are well recommended. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the service is very friendly and helpful. Owners will provide lovely meals and book any trips required.

We (me & my wife) stayed at konark homestay during our kerla trip, we did thekaddy, munnar, Trivandrum, kovalam, goa and so many other places, but Konark stay was the best time we spent among all the other accommodations.
the best thing about Konark is the kind of homely service they provide, just once call and the guy comes with an Auto & is ready to drop/pick u up to the nearby tourist locations, he provides info abt all the tourist attractions.
The cleanliness in the rooms is amazing,
If in future I happen to go to thekaddy, I wud surely stay @ Konark HomeStay.

I know its late but i will go with adage of better late than never....
it's been almost 4 months, for variety of reasons couldn't update the review. The stay though not an extended one but it was indeed an unforgettable experience at Konark Home Stay. We had been their at the peak of the season (Christmas - New year ). 27th Dec'11 when we checked in around 4pm, we were welcomed by the humble family of Rajkumar. To refresh us they served us Tea which was just magical. All amenities were available for use. The view from the balcony is also refreshing.
Our daughter who was 2 years old usually doesn't get mixed with strangers was all playful with Rajkumar's family. Besides experiencing the beauty of Thekkady, we did spend good amount of time at Rajkumar's handicraft shop, did get some insights on Rudraksh (varieties of it were available for sale). We did buy few stuffs other than rudraksh.
All the family members were very warm, the services were exceptionally good.
Given a chance to go to Thekkady again, would certainly head to Konark Home Stay....

PS: They helped us get tickets to Kalaripayatu (Traditional Kerala Martial Arts) which is a must see... they offered to facilitate in getting tickets for jeep safari, we couldn't make it cause of the KID.

.a most enjoyable few days at konark homestay.the room was very clean and comfortable,the water was hot, the food excellent and plenty and the view into the reserve a delight.one morning i watched a barking deer then a samba deer,snake bird and monkey,all for free.! ram and ladha were very good hosts and johdi`s smile would light up any day.this was one of the most enjoyable quiet and relaxing places i stayed in over the 4 weeks travelling around kerela and i would recommend this homestay to any traveller .it was very good value for monet and within a short walking distance of the reserve and the town.if i ever find myself back at periyar this is where i would choose to stay rather than some of the other well known and more reviewed establishments.james cameron

Room Tip: All rooms have access to a terrace overlooking the reserve with superb views
