“Green View Home Stay - Conveniently situated, clean and reasonable”
Reviewed October 15, 2009

We arrived by bus and were surrounded by people claiming to be from the hotel. As it was, they just wanted to offer their services once they had taken us there. It's a pleasant location, the owners friendly enough - but shop around too, and surrounded by things to do. A bit of a climb up the stairs to our room but some swinging chairs on the rooftop to amuse the kids. Organised some trips with the owners but some hard bargaining required to achieve a sensible price. Good choice of restaurants and shops in the area. Limited bus travel from Kumily to Alleppey (one a day at about 1300) so we took the cab arranged by the hotel which was a bit of luxury but not too badly priced and included the spice tour with tea plantation on the way. Prices for the trip around town were pretty much the same.

We spent the night in the GreenView homestay on our visit to the Periyar wildlife park.
This guesthouse is a good option, in a quiet area not far from the city centre and restarants.
Rooms are large, clean and quiet.

What a great place. Nice, spacious room, lovely balcony to relax on. Owner will go out his way to help you with your trips. Well worth the money and gave us a discount for staying 4 nights. One of our favourite guesthouses in India at 800 rupees (600 rupees rooms available). Free breakfast included in price.

We loved staying at GreenView- The owner Suresh was so helpful and kind. We were fortunate to be staying over one of the Hindu festivals and Suresh invited us to a wonderful Keralan meal to celebrate. His wife is such an amazing cook- it was the best meal we had throughout our stay in Kerala. His staff were so fantastic. We really cannot recommend this homestay more highly.

Best host ever, felt just home from first second. great rooms (we took most expensive for 1000 Rs per night) with nice comfortable beds, good bathroom with hot water (really hot!). Nice veranda with view at beautiful tropical garden with a lot of birds.

Really friendly host, takes care of you, not to pushy, you can get a lot of services like nature tours, ayurvedic treatment or ticket booking.

Best accommodation on our trip.

Just amazing!

We took one of the new rooms, Rs1500, and got the promised private balcony with comfy hanging cane chair and beds with 6 inch foam mattresses. This is a homestay that is fast growing into a large guesthouse, but our room was quiet and overlooked the garden so we weren't aware of the other rooms. The family, especially Suresh's brother, were a little over eager to arrange trips and massages, presumably for commission, since they cost no more than booking any other way. We did two good day long trips, one via jeep leaving at dawn, and one walking and rafting. Both to be recommended.

The room was clean when we arrived, but there was no cleaning done while we were there, which seems to be common to homestays. The breakfast was nothing special, toast and red jam. It is situated on the Bypass Road, a little back road bypassing the noisy town centre. We walked up to Chrissies to eat - a rooftop restaurant and pizza's for a change.

When we left we had Suresh drive us to Alleppy and visited a spice garden on the way, plus took a back road to look at the rubber plantations. It made it an interesting trip and a change from buses.

We came to Kumily for 2 days and ended up staying 6 nights at Green View Homestay. It was a lovely Homestay and it was peaceful and we woke up in the morning to the sound of tropical birds singing, which was a bliss. .The rooms were large, clean and had lashing of hot water…:) The balcony was large, overlooking the garden and the Mountain View and a wonderful sunset. The Homestay was in a very convenient but quiet area The owner, Suresh, and his wife were gentle people and very helpful without being too pushy. The tours arranged by Green View were good value. We highly recommend a stay at green view.
