“Very good option for Wayanad stay”
Reviewed November 3, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Myself, my wife and 10 year old niece stayed at Glendale for 3 nights in November. We contacted Bijin and he was very prompt in his responses and very helpful. Now about the stay. The property is surrounded by coffee plantations, very private, quiet and beautiful. Much better than staying in the middle of town. There is one house with 3 small bedrooms, and an attic and living room, old style and another with one large bedroom, modern style. We chose the latter.. Very comfortable, neat and clean. Cosy. Hot water available for bathing, place is neat and clean. There is a caretaker on premise, cooks excellent home style meals, limited variety but very tasty, fresh, non spicy. He also arranges campfire in the evening. Bijin arranged for jeep to visit all the places of interest. All is very good, only two points to note.. There is nothing much to do on the property itself except to relax, and there is no public transportation from the holiday home, and its too far to walk, so you have to have your own car or pre-arrange the transportation with Bijin. Also, prior to arriving at Glendate, I would recommend you do your own research on the internet, all the places you want to visit, the distances from the holiday home, the timings, dates they are open/closed etc, so that you can plan it properly in advance, which day you want to go where.
On the whole, we were very happy with our interactions with Bijin, and our stay at Glendale. Highly recommended.

“Bijin (Care Taker)- Rude, Unprofessional, Liar, Cheater.”
Reviewed October 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

Hi All,

I would like to write about my experience with Bijin the care taker of place.

I booked the place over phone after speaking to him an got an email from him. Upon asking if need any advance money guy says no but then later agrees for it. I transferred him 2k.

Upon reaching the place we find that he was not here and place guy ask us to check in. Place was a total mess, rats were roaming around. Upon using toilet got to know there is no water available in cottage. I straight away called Bijin and told him that we not gonna stay here. So he said no issues he wil transfer the advance money back.

14 August it was and I waited for a week for him to transfer but nothing. Upon calling and messaging him multiple times he was started avoiding calls and when we use to call him from unknown no then he use to say m busy and will transfer money soon.

One fine day he took details to transfer money and intentionally entered my mobile no instead of account no in account no. I reverted back and then again same story of delaying. After about a month of too n fro I called him up amd he started misbehaving over phone that I'm not thief so will return money when get time. He was that rude that he was not ready to listen to me.

Call recording is with me, so any one interested can mail me to get the call recording as well.

Have screenshots of all the conversation with him over whatsapp which once you will read will get to know what kind of lier and unprofessional he is.

Its mid oct still not received complete money as after eating his head only got 1k and then he said 1k is cancellation charges for booking where even no advance was required.

And we have a screenshot where he transferred 2k initially where he entered mobile no as account no. So this guy is a thief.

Also taking a suv to the property will be little dangerous. No markets and eateries near by.

You can see in below screenshots he mentioned that he will refund money but he hasn't. He infact told my wife to do whatever you want and leave as many reviews on as many websites as you can but he doesn't care as he has many other properties which he operates.

Guys dont hesitate to ask me for that call recording which 11 minutes long and you will get to know what kinda guy you gonna deal with if booking the place.

This place was just plain beautiful. Serenity at its best. Mr Bijin was one of the most courteous people I've ever met ,always willing to help with a smile. If you're in need of peace,serenity and to be one with nature, without having to pay a small fortune for it, this is the place to be.

We were six adults and five children.we had stayed in glendale for 2 days in 3 bedroom and 2 one bed room cottages.Bijin rented the whole property to us on these days so we got complete privacy to enjoy with our family.the pool was really cold and the best part which kids and men loved the most.we had access to kitchen so we cooked food ravi the care taker brought us all the groceries we required.He also made necessary arrangemnts for barbeque and firecamp for one day as it was raining heavily the next day.the climate was really cold and the walk through plantations was simply beautiful.we all family members had great time over there and visted few nearby tourist places chembra peak,pookode lake and sughipara water falls due to limited time and rain.on the whole a private peaceful atmosphere for family and groups.thanks bijin and ravi for the good hospitatlity.A lovely place we will visit again.
