The two of us stayed 3 nights at Anil & Jeeva's homestay (patioroom) and we highly recomm end their lovely home to anyone looking for an excellent retreat with gracious hosts where you can really relax. Not only was the room just right (and very clean), the food just perfect for everyone's taste (Jeeva will ask every time how spicy you'd like it and Alphonsa will look after you - you never run low on coffee, food, towels etc.). The hosts were simply the loveliest ones we met during our 2 weeks of travelling Kerala state (and we met quite a few). We had a wonderful time at the homestay, started into the day with tasty Keralan breakfast and Anil arranged in a very uncomplicated manner cabs or rikshaws so we could easily explore the fascinating surroundings, we have never seen so many shades of greens. Moreover, Anil gave us perfect advice how to avoid the crowds of tourists who crawl up the hills around noon - just get up the hills in the early morning, and you'll be rewarded with peaceful silence at Top Station and a stunning look on the mountains. Anil might take you for a walk around the area where the house is located, and tell you all about pepper and all those many spices that grow in everyone's backyard. Should we ever return to this part of India, we would for sure see if Anil & Jeeva have a spare room for us. So again a great thank you to you two, Anil and Jeeva, for your generous hospitality and advice how to get around and to you - five points for Royal Mist Munnar!!
