Excellent homestay. The owner, Mr Cyriac, is a warm and welcoming host. He took trouble of taking us couple of times to the town. The estate is well laid out, away from the town hustle. The room allotted to us was bit small but clean. The food was very good. The chef took trouble of asking our choice and prepared... More

Housekeeping department could do better with washing tiled floors instead of just sweeping them and wiping down bathroom surfaces to bring back the shine to the fittings and glass. Dinner was good but Chinese food two nights in a row?! The host is passionate about his lovely large forest garden and loves to take you on a tour. Lots of... More

They maintain the place very well in limited staff. The Open kitchen and the fresh break fast is one of the great experience. Beautiful spice garden around. Interior is nice you can spend... More

They are good people, help guests, provide homely atmosphere and serves good food (we are vegetarians and veg food was awesome). The owner is basically a farmer who grows pepper in his adjoining farm. This makes the place even more interesting and serene. He also took us in his own car to one very nice point (highest point in kumily).... More

We had a really nice stay here. The rooms were spacious and clean with a lovely balcony overlooking the owners spice and fruit gardens. The owner was happy to take us round his gardens explaining all the different types of exotic produce. The chef was exceptional and provided us with plenty of delicious food.

We stayed at home stay at the same time as Kim Brodie, (see her previous comments) and would just like to reiterate all her comments, we think the owner was out of order asking another couple for a tip for himself, he is definitely not short of money and we thought it very cheeky of him, you don't mind tipping...

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Pepper Country. The room was clean and comfortable and the view from our balcony was wonderful, we lazed a few hours away reading and listening to the sounds of the birds and animals. The owner is a very charming man and nothing was too much trouble. He gave us a tour... More
