The rooms are simple yet with some nice touches - especially the balconies. The staff helped us arrange tours in the park and transportation to our next destination. Plain breakfast is made to order. We could only use the wifi while sitting next to the "front desk" (not in the room).

This stay was one of the best ones during our vacation in Kerala in December 2013-January 2014. The owner, Suresh, is an amazingly positive person and is now our new role model :-) Green View has a perfect location, is nice and clean, comfortable beds and a very good price. Some of our most fantastic memories are the evening at the roof of Green View watching the thousands of bats flying from one of the valleys to another. For us that was most impressive. Kumily is also a very nice town with a nice atmosphere. We stayed for three nights but could easily have stayed longer - much thanks to Suresh and his wife´s friendly atmosphere they created. We are thinking of visiting Suresh place in Munnar next time we go to Kerala.
Suresh also has good ideas about what to do in the area and recommended a good spice shop where we got a stock of spices for the next many, many years.
Our memories from Suresh and Green View will be brought out when we need some extra positive thoughts and spirit. Thank you for a lovely and memorable stay :-)

We spent two nights here. Owners were friendly and could not have been more helpful. The room was a good size with a lovely view from our balcony, we were even treated to the sight of hundreds of huge bats flying past one evening. Stunning! Don't leave anything you would miss out overnight as the monkeys come scavenging around sunrise! Location is good, rooms clean and at 1500rps a night was reasonably priced for what you got.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the top at the back with a balcony

Owner suresh is fantastic. Super friendly and helpful, goes above and beyond to make your stay in periyer great. He may be a bit overbearing at first, but soon you'll realize he is just so eager to help. Well maintained property. Great value for a reasonable cost. Hot water was inconsistent, our showers were tepid. Overall, we were very happy with our stay, and moved on to Suresh's second property in Munnar, Green Valley Vista.

We stayed 3 nights in Greenview in November 2013 and had a fantastic time. Don't get put off by the fact that the accommodation is quite cheap as it was as good as Homestays for which we had paid more than twice as much. The room was large, clean, with hot water and a good view from the balcony with rattan furniture. The owner Suresh and his wife were really friendly and helpful, they arranged all our transport and trips, being a jeep/jungle trek to Periyer reserve, elephant riding/washing and an unexpected Indian cooking lesson which was great fun and highly recommended. I highly recommend this homestay and would stay there again if in the area.

It was the best shower we've had! Rooms comfy but basic but no service or food except breakfast. Balcony lovely and peaceful and good location. Owners friendly offering reflexology. Take extra water, soap and toilet paper.
