After some days in Madurai it was a wonderful break from city life. The Indhrivanam is in the middle of the jungle approx. 15min drive from Kumily town (which is quite busy as well). The cottage and the main house (where Sarah and Morten live) are very nice designed and built with local material. After Madurai it was little chilly...

We very much enjoyed our stay with Sarah, Morten and their friendly dog Ashna! Even though we arrived on a rainy day, inside the cottage it was very cozy. By the way: Indrivanam offers a full fledged movie library in case you get bored or stuck in the rain. Fortunately we were lucky and the next days the weather was...

Thank you Philipp! And apologies for rejecting your Google Street Views request yesterday. I did some random clicking with the mouse because we have never before received an email from Google Street Views. If you need anything from India, recipes, kerala towels etc., you are always welcome to send us an email. All the best to you and Ute.

The stay at Indhrivanam was my wife's birthday gift, and I can't recollect a better gift. The location of the homestay, the ambience, the design of the cottage, the facilities provided, the hosts' hospitality, the sumptuous, flavourful food - all at a very reasonable price - made this stay, easily the best ever for us. It is a peaceful different...

Stayed here for two nights while visiting the area. This is are real Homestay, which is what I was looking for. The Cottage is very well built and new with local stone and wood material. Although a bit cold at night for the setting, there were ample covers for the very comfortable bed. The sounds of the forest at night...

We stopped there for 2 nights on our way from Madurai to Cochin. The single stone-built cottage is secluded in the forest, 15 min drive from the busy Kumily town. The cottage and main house were beautifully designed and somewhat medieval feeling with all the beautiful stone building masonry. Comfortable none the less. Chilly climate considering other locales in India,...

First time reviewer, but after staying at Indhrivanam wanted to share our experience. From the moment we arrived we knew this would be something to remember! We were warmly welcomed by hosts Morten and Sarah (and sweet dog Ashna!) who got us settled into our accommodation. Wow, a beautiful stone cottage set in its own private forest! The location is...

We (husband and I) stayed at Indhrivanam for 3 nights. And it does really feel like staying in a forest! In the night it was totally quiet with only the sounds of a tropical jungle (owls and toads, and groups of wild boar eating coconuts outside the cottage). The cottage is great for relaxation in the daytime with its hanging...

Sara and Morten were excellent hosts and we had a very good time with them (great conversations, laughs). They were very helpful in planning the trip and outings once we were there but at the same time flexible to our needs. The cottage and main house are very tastefully designed and true to the concept...minimal impact on the environment. Bed...
