Very nice, big room with the view in to the lush greenery. I'm sure the daughter will take over one day! She was so nice, but the mom too. We got some good recommendations which were very helpful and best was the recommendation of the cooking class at "BBQ Thekkady".
Thank you very much for that.

The rooms ranged from 400 to 1200 Rs and was pretty good value. We didn't have the view but we only stayed the one night. We saw a goar (bison) from the backyard of the 1200 Rs room. The location was good - close to shops and the periyar reserve. Some negatives - no hot water in our rooms, ant probs in the bathroom but they came promptly to address it, electricity issues (it shut off without warning after 10pm and didn't come on again till morning

Do not stay here - there are much better options for the money! The rooms were not very clean, the shower was broken, the fan was very noisey and looked like it was about to fall down. We asked for toilet roll and was told that we needed to provide our own. There was no protection against insects and we could barely shut the door of our room. When a huge spider turned up in the bathroom that was the last straw and we moved elsewhere. We had booked for 2 nights, not even stayed one and the owner refused to give us any sort of refund.
The only plus was the view which looked directly over the park.

If you wan't a view like Jurassic park, look no further. After spending 3 weeks in Kerala White House felt like a holiday retreat for very little cost. The friendly host went out of her way to help us, the rooms were clean and most of our time was spent out on the veranda looking out over the lush green forest and fantastic wildlife. If you have a pair of binoculars we suggest you bring them.

We had a good experience in this place. The view was gud and we spotted Wild Boar and black tail monkey and many birds. It is slightly scary at night as the room beside was not occupied when we boarded the place.It is a heaven during daytime. There is no restaurant attached, so you need to cross the road to have tea or lunch. Also we we were bit by plenty of mosquitoes so better take mosquito coils. Otherwise the stay was good.

I spent two nights in Thekkady at White House, and these were really great! I would actually have loved to spend more days there, but had already arranged my trip in Kerala.
I got one of the rooms at the top floor with a magnificent view on the jungle, got monkeys passing by in the morning to say hello, saw weird birds in the trees, and cows in the fields.
The lady and her daughter who take care of the place are both great persons to meet, and full of advices. I highly recommend that place, really!!!

The White House is in an excellent location: central Kumily, within walking distance from the restaurants and shops.
You have the choice of either a modern room with an en suite bathroom and AC, or a bamboo hut with a shared bathroom. We had the modern room which was basic in its decoration, but was really spacious, had everything you need and was spotlessly clean. The highlight was its lovely veranda with a hanging wicker chair, overlooking the Periyar Reserve - a great place to relax in the evening before wandering down the road for dinner.
The White House was probably our favourite place that we stayed at during the entire trip in Kerala. It was fantastic value and we'd definitely return.
Our stay there was arranged by a nearby Homestay owner, Meena. We were originally going to stay at her beautiful homestay, Villa Prakriti, but there was no space so she kindly arranged a room at the White House as an alternative (she also arranged a bunch of other things for us - elephant rides, jungle trek, etc etc)

Pro:
The rooms were clean.
Some rooms at the end has balcony and have good view.
The location is walkable from periyar tiger reserve.
Cons:
Price is too high.
The rooms lack many basic amunities for the price like tv, mosquito coils ,any sort of closet, all time hot water availability. The plug points in our room were not working. The owner lady infact told us to buy mosquito coil ourselves. Only 1 cfl light in bedroom was working.

Do not stay here if you have any other option.

"Take a room in a newer part of the resort, with a balcony and hanging chairs overlooking the garden and tiger reserve. Bring a mosquito mosquito nets or repellents as small air windows are unprotected. Ask if they have hot water in the room."
