I had a great stay at Vanilla County. The owners were very friendly and, since our stay was during Christmas, they had arranged a lovely Christmas evening with fireworks, cake, games, and home-made wine. The rooms are very nice, clean and with all the amenities you need, the place looks really nice and has a small spice plantation nearby. In addition, there is a very nice natural rock pool nearby that you can swim in.

What a wonderful relaxing few days spent up in the hills away from the bustling city of Cochin. We saw lots of exotic herbs and spices growing, witnessed the latex being collected from the rubber trees, sampled the 'palm toddy' at the local toddy shop. Ate marvellous home cooked food , swam in a couple of beautiful natural pools and generally had the most relaxing few days after being on the go for a solid month of sightseeing trips throughout India. Highly recommended!!

Baby Mathew, his wife Rani and assistant Maju made our stay here truly memorable. The food is the best we have tasted in South India - quite a feat. The warmth of their hospitality meant that nothing was too much trouble. Trip to an ATM. Trip to the Toddy Shop (hic!). Trip to the barber, the rockpool, coffee factory, sunset walk in rubber plantation etc. Rooms are gorgeously authentic with mahogany floors and antique furniture. We cannot recommend Vanilla County highly enough. Many, many thanks

In this location, you feel your hosts are friends. Meals are different every days and clearly premium level. Whatever your needs, they want to help and make you rest. A strongly recommended address to stay in Kerala
