Cyriac was a lovely host who made us feel welcomed from the moment we arrived. He also gave us a personal tour of his own spice plantation sharing his knowledge about the array of plants on his property and effortlessly led us through the plantation. Thekkady is well known around the world for its fresh spices - it was great to see spices in their natural home and comparing the freshness to the packet spices we would normally see in supermarkets. You feel like you are staying in a hotel at this home stay with the rooms well maintained, clean, and comfortable with panoramic views of Cyriac's spice plantation. The home stay cooking is delicious and the staff incredibly warm and generous. I would stay here again. FEATURES: Free Wifi; Air conditioning; Large beds; Spacious bathrooms; Incredible views; Personal nature tour; Driver accommodation on-site; Felt secure and safe; Delicious home stay cooking. *We booked our accommodation and private diver through Reverence Tours (reverencetours@gmail.com), who custom designed our South India itinerary to meet our travel needs and budget. They have long-standing relationships with local home stays like Pepper County. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Imagine a modern villa in spice garden. Unfortunately we stayed only one night in this amazing home stay. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. We will be back for a week to explore the wonderful home stay resort and spice Garden of Pepper County!!! Santhoshkumar & Isabella Loosli.

We had a lovely stay. The bungalow is beautiful & we had spacious comfy rooms. Our host was very helpful & hospitable as were the staff, who made meals for us at some unusual times. Nothing was too much trouble. An added bonus was our conducted tour of the host’s spice garden.

Pepper county homestay is a comfortable place to stay. Mr Cyriac is an extremely kind and welcoming host. The rooms are large and have small verandahs to sit on. Very clean. The food is very good and plentiful. They organised a cake for our friends birthday. Staff are friendly and can't do enough. Would return. Just one comment... no where to sit if you want to catch a few rays of sunshine (you know what us Brits are like) could just do with a couple of sun loungers on the roof top. Not a complaint just a suggestion.

We booked this Homestay on the back of all the positive reviews and are very glad we did. Mr Cyriac and his wife Dolly are attentive and charming, always striving to give us the best possible experience. Their home is in the village of Kumily, which is fun to explore on foot, and the bustling tourist town of Thekkady is just a short car journey away. We loved our time in the Tiger Reserve there too. Accommodation is spacious and comfortable. Food is delicious and authentic. Staff are also very helpful. It was a joy to accompany Mr Cyriac on a walk around his estate, as well as to see his brother's neighbouring dairy farm. All in all a very pleasurable stay, thank you!
