Friendly and helpful staff. Helped arrange great day at the Elephant Safari and provided free drop off and pick up. Budget rooms (450r) are very basic and not the most comfortable with no sheet/bedding provided apart from base sheet. Good location not far from bus depot/periyar/shops in a lovely green setting. No hot water in budhet rooms but do have a generator for during powercuts. Free wifi.

The Green View really isn't a home stay - it's a small hotel and the family lives on the ground floor. It's basic but, we had a nice clean room with a balcony; the location was great; and the friendly owners provided lots of useful help with sightseeing. Breakfast was very simple. We booked in advance and learned from other guests that we paid much more than other people, so consider negotiating the price a bit. Since the price was modest by U.S. standards, I'm still giving the Green View a high rating. (You may want to go out for breakfast though!)

we stayed 3 nights at green view, only place in India where we don't use our own sheets !! we were in a 1000rs room, with a lovely balcony overlooking the garden.
suresh the owner is one of the kindest and good hearted people we met in India, and was very helpful in arranging all our activities while in kumili.
and the shower was amazing !! :)
highly recommended

We stayed here for two nights while visiting the Periyar reserve. The location is good, rooms are good sized. The room was clean, the bathroom not... Service is OK. We had breakfast at the hotel once, which was OK.

We stayed there for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Suresh the owner is very welcoming and helpful. Our room was a good size complete with own balcony, where we sat and watched the monkeys at play - don't leave anything out during the day as they are likely to take them! We took a few tours via Suresh and were very pleased with them, in particular the tea plantation and spice garden and the Periyar National Park. For the price of the room, it represented excellent value for money, as the homestay is very close to all the shops, cafes and restaurants. Taxis and tuk tuks are plentiful. Internet access is only available next to the owner's front door and you are likely to experience several power cuts. That said, we would certainly stay there again.

We came to Thekkaddy during christmas time and most of the guesthouses/homestays and hotels were sold out. So we took a room in Green View Home Stay, which seemed to be fine at the first look. The price was ok for peak season and the room was clean. Also in the beginning the host seemed to be nice and friendly, though hardly arrived he already wanted to sell some tours and packages, which we found quite annoying. The first thing that made us think was the water. It was yellow and really smelly. I am used to indian water (my husband is from India) and I am not expecting too much. But this was even for my nose too much. It was not from rusty water pipes, coz usually the color goes away after you let the water run for some time. Be very careful, I am very sure that water is not ok. Secondly the WIFI is just available if you see in front of the entrance door to their private house, which I find annoying.
Also the owner was only friendly at the beginning until he got the money for the two nights, after that he was never to be seen anymore. The whole family seems to be annoyed with tourists and does not interact too much with them. They seem to be quite greedy, coz if you take your own choice of auto-rickshaw or book a package directly and not through them you get angry and upset looks.
I would never ever stay there again!

I stayed here as couple. Rooms are clean but don't worth around 1200-1400 rs. There is no restaurant facilities. Problem in getting drinking water. Phone was also not working so that we can order for drinking water. Location also not that good. I stayed here for a day during kerala tour.
