“Great choice!”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

We came for a couple of nights and extended our stay. Our upstairs room was excellent with a private balcony looking out through the backyard trees; several afternoons were spent monkey and squirrel watching. The bathroom was clean, the shower worked and our tariff included breakfast - no grumbles! It is quite central with a number of eating places and attractions just a short walk away. Being on a back road it was also pleasantly quiet. We discovered, a day or so after arriving, that wifi is able to be accessed from the front verandah.
The onsite owners are a very friendly and helpful family - Suresh organised transport for us to Munnar which was a great experience.

Room Tip: Upstair rooms facing the trees.

Excellent home stay within a few minutes walk of everything. The family are very friendly and inviting providing information about tours and transport. We arrived not knowing what exactly to do and only having 1.5 days to do it all, they soon advised the best way so we could fit everything we wanted to do within the time frame.
Definitely check this place out!

Suresh and his family made us feel welcome and were helpful in arranging trips (and did not charge more than the going rate). We were lucky enough to have one of the rooms on the top floor so had a private balcony with wicker swing chair where we could relax looking out over the palm trees. The room was large, clean and had reliable hot water. The only thing that could have improved our stay would have been wifi, but there was an internet cafe very near by. Great for a relaxing few days.

We stayed here for four nights - longer than we had expected to stay (originally just for one!) - and we were taken care of as soon as we arrived. The family were welcoming, generous and full of helpful advice without being pushy. We felt we could do our own thing if we wanted but could always come to the family with questions or just for a chat. The balcony views were beautiful, with monkeys joining us during our afternoon chai. Would definitely recommend people to stay there!

I am usually a hotel buff but this is the first time I tried to stay at a home stay to have a new experience. I am very happy to have made that decision as this place met my expectations. I felt like home throughout my stay. I liked personalized services very "unlike" hotels and economical rates and fresh non fancy food. Next time I travel to any corner of India I will prefer to stay in a home stay unit.

We've been to many guesthouses and home stays in Kerala and throughout India, and we can say without a doubt that Green View Home Stay had the warmest and kindest welcome of them all. Suresh and the rest of the family are attentive without being pushy and their kindness and helpfulness made our three nights stay in Kumily so great.The rooms are spotless clean and comfy, with nice balconies facing to a lush garden (and an occasional langur monkey), and the shower is as strong and hot as you can wish for after a day of trekking in Periyar.

Highly recommended!

We stayed here for 3 nights on our visit to Kumily. My husband had stayed here previously so we knew that it was good and I wasn't disappointed when I arrived. The rooms are basic but very clean and they have a nice balcony overlooking the garden. The staff are really nice and helpful and they have a rickshaw service at the guesthouse which is very useful when you need to go somewhere. The best thing about it for me was the appearance of the Langur monkeys in the back garden. They are normally quite shy around humans so it was a great suprise when we saw them in the trees just beside the balcony. They were amazing to watch and so close by. Overall we had a very pleasant stay in Green View.
