We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here with our kind and considerate hosts. Breakfast was served on our balcony overlooking the edge of the reserve. We watched birds, wild pig and mongoose every day. The bed was very comfortable. We ate our evening meals mostly at the cafe opposite. The house is within easy reach of the park and booking office.

Kerala house is one of those properties located at the boundary of the Forest with the entry just a few minutes walk. The rooms are clean, spacious and you get hot water too in the attached bath. Shibu and his wife are always there to help you out with anything you need to make your tour perfect. From transport to...

The rooms are really big. Its a homestay and not a hotel, and i think it will not disappoint anyone. Room facilities are basic and in order. The owners are helpful. but the service is limited, especially if you need anything beyond normal working hours. If you are not comfortable with stairs, you need to avoid.

They serve good chicken dishes, nice apple pancakes and south indian dosa. You will not relish many of the Kerala's restaurants south indian food. It is not as per North indian taste buds for sure. This was one place to which we could relate to. Reasonable for the pocket too, parking available for cars. Dont order mutton dishes, I dont...

Located in the middle of the marketplace, close to good restaurants, shops and theatres for martial arts and kathakali dance shows- I fully recommend it. Rooms, wifi, surroundings, views - everything is excellent! And the icing on the cake are the hosts- they are there 24*7 to ensure you make only happy memories there. :)

Perhaps the best homestay during our entire trip to Kerala. The rooms were extremely clean so much so that you need not wear your shoes at the entire homestay. Room no. 5 has the best view and feels royal. Other rooms are also good. I extremely loved this place. Mr. Shibu and his family members are also very friendly. He...

Stayed for a night. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Hot water is available only in the mornings. Location is also very good with plenty of options nearby for food. The venue for martial arts / dance is 5 min away. The owners stay in same building and are very helpful. Overall it's an excellent value for money.

Hospitality and ambiance are nice. Reasonable rates for semi luxury rooms. Stayed for 2 nights. Hotel staff are cooperative. Thekkady is a good place for nature lovers. You wont find much activities in the town. Don't fall in the trap of too much hype for the town. It is ok to visit the city only if you have patience to...

Nice people... Good and clean rooms... The view I found was average thought but it is right adjacent to the forest and if your lucky you might spot a wild Buffalo or sambar... But you will spot at least 25 different birds... The gallery is great! Shibu and his family is great! You are in good hands with them... Shibu...
