Pros: Place is inside village and away from main road so it is very nice. Very quite and next to area plantation. Rooms, restrooms are clean. Nice food[pretty good for a remote place]. Cons: We are 14 people. Not sure they have dealt with so many people at the same time. Coffee was asked to be served 4 times and after 5th reminder, it was served. This was on the first day. Refrigerator in the dining room, doesn't work. So cool drinks and beer there was no place to chill. Anyways, second day, there were no issues about food. Will visit again for sure.

Well, what can I say, you don't need to go through the entire reviews, just simply go for it. Its a Perfect Homestay with every warm hosts. The USP = Super Location, Lip-Smacking Food, very Neat and Clean Bungalow and last but not the least extraordinarily warm people. Mr. Krishna is a super cook and is always ready to help you. Mr Prasad & Mrs Rekha and extremely kind and will treat you very much as a family member. I just don't want to write much, in fact there is nothing much to write too. Just go for it and I am sure you all will be a happy soul. Finally, a big thanks to Mr Prasad, Mrs Rekha & Mr Krishna for taking care of us (we were after all 25 of us). Thank You
