We stayed at Micky’s Homestay for three nights. The rooms were clean but basic so exactly what we paid for. We were welcomed warmly being shown to our room after arriving unannounced, explained our budget and were given room prices accordingly.
The Homestay manager organised our border trek and even took us to the office to book it, taking no commission. The owner offered tea and coffee whenever we needed it and helped us with journey plans.
Micky’s is situated on a quite back road of Kumily where there are restaurants and cafes.
If you are looking for clean and friendly place to stay this is it!

Stayed for 3 nights in the budget double room which was good value for money. The location is great, very central but quiet.
The star of the show is Suja, now my Indian mother! They are a fairly hands off host couple but happy to help when needed and we shared coffee and tea with them in the evening, learning about local life, making friends with the cat and having a laugh. We would come back again for the company if nothing else.
Around sunset sit on the balcony and watch the bats fly overhead.

We were 3 families about 15 people and they the rooms were comfortable enough to accommodate all. The location was nice, in the middle of the town but overlooking a coffee estate so it was very peaceful away from the crowd in the main roads. The hosts were very courteous and friendly. Right from the day we checked in to the day we checked out, they ensured that our stay was enjoyable. They had arranged for home-made food for us and it was simple and delicious.

If you are someone who likes to stay in comfortable hotels with all amenities, then this place is not for you. The rooms are very basic, but you get the experience of staying in a typical house in Kerala, eat local food and enjoy the hosts hospitality. You wouldn't get this in a 5 star hotel.

Room tip: The one with the balcony facing the front of the house is the best

When you enter, you'll be shown the room, and then forgotten. No water. No checking if you need anything. No helping with sight-seeing. My expectations from a homestay was very different! If you want food, you can walk across to hotels on the opposite lane. If you're having a hard time with the mosquitoes, you deal with it, while "maalkin" relaxes on her porch with her fly-swatter.

Great place to stay in Periyar! The owners are some of the most friendly and lovely people I have ever met. Our room was spacious and clean and the location is within walking distance (5 minutes) to the office of Periyar Wildlife Reserve. Important ingformation: The owners can also help you with booking the overnight "Periyar tiger trail" or any other activity in the park in advance - which is otherwise very hard to do by yourself since the park does not have online reservations and there are only 6 spots per overnight trek. Would definitely return!
