“Lovely and caring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

We stayed for three nights and had the private and relaxed time we were wanting to have. The highlight was the friendliness of Mr Paul and his family, he was very caring and accommodating with plenty of information to offer when we needed it.

The food was fantastic, real Indian and home cooked. Bed room as well as shared living area are exceptionally clean (entire home stay consists of two separate bed rooms, shared bathroom & toilet, separate kitchenette(!) and large dining area; as others mentioned it is perfect for a family as well).

Our host also helped us with organising a jeep and driver for a day tour around the area; unlike other guesthouses we really felt there was no pressure or second motivation. The driver he usually uses is brilliant; again much in contrast to other experiences he drove carefully, happy to stop at any time for pictures and was looking after us very well.
Side note: at Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary we highly recommend the trekking tour, over the jeep tour to see wild elephants—our host organised the trekking tour too at our request.

Do not be put off by the location, although at night it was not the easiest place to find, they were waiting to greet us when we arrived. Even though it is not right in the centre of Kalpetta, it is an easy enough walk or short tuk tuk ride (and we found the tuk tuk drivers in Kalpetta the most honest ones we came across anywhere). We did some nice short walks near the homestay too.

We had a wonderful and rejuvenating time at Bethel home stay. The place is very clean, calm and beautiful and is just about 500 meters from Kalpetta. The rooms are kept very clean. It even has a small kitchen with the basic cutlery. The hosts Mr. Paul and his family were very helpful and hospitable and made us feel at home. Mr. Paul suggested us places to visit, transportation, bus routes, and also helped us with hiring a cab. He even personally dropped us off at the bus stand at the beginning of our stay. This home stay is any day better than any run of the mill hotel. I would suggest this place because it is very clean and well maintained, the hosts are wonderful and hospitable and the prices are also very reasonable

My family enjoyed a 2 nights/3 day tour to Wynad. We stayed at Bethel homestay. We just called Mr,Paul and informed our schedule over the phone, no reservation was required. Mr.Paul and his mother made us very comfortable.The house is fantastic in all respects. Beautiful scenic view even from the washrooms!!.Clean kept rooms and washrooms and it even has a kitchen, who opt to cook .Very close to the town. Mr.Paul was very helpful in providing maps and local information. The breakfast was just yummy and sumptuous.This place is really a home away from home. The master bedroom has a little balcony with a wonderful view. A perfect choice and looking forward to visit again.Highly recommended for a family with kids. We fondly remember the hospitality.

I enjoyed a 4 day visit to Kalpetta with friends in January.
Paul the host, and his lovely mother Jacquline, made us most welcome to thier lovely home. The house is beautifully clean and comfortable and is a short walk from the busy and very friendly town of Kalpetta.
Paul provided useful maps and information about local places of interest and encouraged us to travel by the frequent local buses, which added to our enjoyment of this beautiful district of Kerala. We saw tea, coffee and spice plantations, rubber production and the fabulous scenery of this lovely area.
I recommend Bethel homestay without reservation, and will fondly remember the hospitality and enjoyment here.

We found this a fantastic place to stay. Wayanad is a lovely place, and the owner was tremendously helpful and generous when we were trying to organize site-seeing, providing advice on places to see, transportation, bus routes, and hiring a jeep for a safari in Muthanga wildlife sanctuary. He even personally picked us up and dropped us off at the right bus stands at the beginning and end of our stay.

Bethel homestay is ideally located in a quiet neighborhood just outside of Kalpetta, but close enough to walk (~1 km to the edge of town), or take an auto into town. It's also right on frequent bus routes. This was perfect for us, as we were traveling without a vehicle, and don't like staying in noisy/busy areas.

We had a lovely, clean and spacious room, with a little balcony (2nd room looked great too, although slightly smaller and without balcony). Can see this being a great place for a family to stay, too.

One of the best places we stayed. We'd love to go back again someday.
