We spent 2 nights at the Mundackal Plantation with Jose and Daisy. They made us feel very welcome and very much at home. The house and gardens are very attractive and it was lovely to just sit and relax on their verandah overlooking the gardens and plantation. Jose gave us a very informative and interesting tour of his plantation including the process for making rubber. The undoubted highlight of our stay was the fantastic food, much of which was grown on the estate, and prepared by Daisy. The meals were excellent and of extremely high quality and variety. It is a great place to relax either in comfortable chairs on the verandah or in one of the hammocks. It is very convenient for the Bird Reserve, less than 30 minutes by car and Jose is able to make arrangements to visit the reserve, if desired. Jose is a most interesting person and very knowledgeable about Indian society and culture and the local area. An excellent home stay.
