Mistletoe Munnar is a boutique, premium home stay having five well furnished rooms with private balcony; overlooking the magnificent Chokkanmudi peaks, Lakchmi hills and Kanan Devan plantations of Munnar. This home stay features a traditional clay oven bakery, a cute cafe, small library and plenty of warmth and care from a typical Kerala Syrian Christian family. Mistletoe Munnar is situated at Iruttukanam, on Kochi – Dhanushkodi, NH 49. The driving distance to Munnar via NH is only 16 kms and via Anachal By pass is 14 kms only. It is located between Munnar and Adimaly, ideally at the gateway junction to the Kanan Devan hills of Munnar.

The nearest town is Adimaly, the famous hub for spice trading in Idukki district, and it offers all health care and emergency services. The concept of Mistletoe Munnar has been germinated through several years of passionate desire to offer a value for money real hospitality experience to discerning travelers both international and domestic. The name Mistletoe Munnar has a lot of significance. Mistletoe as a herb, flower has epical attributes in Greek and European mythology and culture. Mistletoe has been attributed as good omen for love, romance, warm family life and relationships, prosperity from time immemorial especially in the medieval European era. Here in our context, every room in the house has a spacious balcony that faces the Lakchmi and Chokkanmudi peaks of the Kanan Devan Hills. One can visualize and be part of the unending romance between the ever relaxing Lakchmi on semi laying position on the north and the Chokkan Mudi peaks with all his magnificence at her footsteps on east, appreciating her natural curves and lush greenery, silvery streaks of water falls on her large bosom. The traditional bake oven & cafe is also the main and characteristic place in the home stay, where baking has been a family business for years. Here one could taste freshly made breads, cakes, cookies and experience baking by learning the basic steps of traditional baking – where the fuel has been always firewood or similar natural fuels like coconut shell, etc. The guests would have a privileged feeling of staying with a baker’s family and enjoying their simplicity of life and hospitality.

Me and husband spent a very relaxing and refreshing vacation in Mistletoe Homestay. The view from the room balcony was wonderful. The room was neat, clean and nicely decorated. Their food was also excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the dishes. We tried local Kerala cuisine and their wood fired pizza (must-try). Joe and his family are excellent host and they made us feel at home during our stay. He also arranged fresh and aromatic spices and fresh avocados from his own farm for us to bring home. We absolutely loved our stay there and looking forward to going back there in future again.

Wife and I spent a couple of days at Mistletoe in February end. We were looking for a relaxing getaway closer to the nature and that is exactly what this place had to offer. The place is situated before Munnar and all rooms have a panoramic view of the hills to offers. The entire homestay has been thoughtfully and creatively done. You could spend hours sitting in the balcony. While it has started to get hot in Munnar as we approach March, it was breezy and the evenings were very pleasant. The Homestay is located right on the highway, however, its peaceful inside the rooms. Joe and family were perfect hosts and served us scrumptious traditional Kerala delicacies. Joe also accompanied us for a short hike to a river nearby. You could spot several species of birds on the way, as well as from the rooms. We wanted to visit some tea estates and Joe arranged a half day tour for us customized to our preferences. Overall, we are very happy and satisfied our stay and hope we come back some day for the famous pizza that we missed out on :)

We stayed at Mistletoe for a week - it was so peaceful and away from the bustle of the town! There is a beautiful river 10 mins away from the property. Johnson and family were so hospitable and generous. The stay felt like home the entire time! They made us the best local food with fresh ingredients locally sourced from their own farms. Would highly recommend a stay here to anyone who’s looking to rejuvenate and recover and wants a quiet, homely place to stay. Here are a few pictures of the view from our little balcony in the room!

Hi! We are glad and overwhelmed to read your review as you were one of the few guests who stayed with us more than a week post covid 19 locked down period. thank you for the kind words and pats, we feel greatly honored to know that you had a relaxed stay all throughout the stay, and its pretty difficult to offer choices when someone stays for more than a week especially if they happen to be vegetarian. It was indeed a privilege to have hosted you at Mistletoe Homestay! Hope to see you again!

We have stayed in one of the best home stay you will get in Munnar. The view from the balcony is amazing and also the rooms are very neat and clean. Mr. Joe and his family made us feel comfortable throughout the stay and their hospitality is really good. He also suggested some of the places which are good for trekking and also places with great views. The dining room has some classic touches which adds the additional flavor to their home stay. Don't mind the distance since it is perfectly located with a great view which will spark up your mornings.

Hi! Being away from city life is the best thing to happen during holidays... Mistletoe being away from the crowded and cramped Munnar town is preferred by like-minded travelers for a quite stay! Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we feel glad that you had a great time with us! As many of our guests like you had appreciated our artworks, I would like to thank our artist friend Mr. Somu from Aymanam for doing a wonderful job to keep! In fact, he has made many artworks from waste wood pieces and his workshop is a must-see when you are near Kumarakam.
