The room was very basic and bare, and (western) breakfast was also quite plain (as we were not asked if we wanted Keralan breakfast) so our night's stay was looking very average.... However, the owner was great and took great pride and was very enthusiastic to show us his part of the forest with monkeys, giant squirrels, elephant tracks and...

We recently stayed at jungle view, and got a large room on the top floor. The room had a great balcony outside and as the title implies, there were a few monkeys and cool birds around also. Although some descriptions here are a bit over the top - the view can be quite restricted. The location is ok, its a...

This home stay is a bit far from the center (a 10-15 minutes walk). But once you are there, you are in the middle of the jungle. Macaques and birds are almost in your bed! But the best thing in Jungle View is the owner. He is so gentle! He'll always do his best to answer your questions and to...

Great place: comfortable and spaceous rooms, very friendly host and an awesome view into the Thekkady jungle with troops of monkeys and lots of birds. Also, value for money is excellent. We enjoyed our stay very much, highly recommended!

We stayed on the top floor which meant we could look into the Tamil Nhadu jungle and view the life going on, monkeys, hornbills, large squirrels etc. The owner is a very friendly, helpful person and loves to chat, which obviously helps his English. Rooms are large and clean with a good hot shower in the bathroom.We stayed in a...

We stayed 3 days with my family at Jungle-view home stay, thekkady during the 1 week Kerala trip. What a beautiful quiet forest location! Our room was huge and spotlessly clean. The room lead out onto a huge shared veranda with stunning panoramic views of the forest. Around the homestay great to smell and taste the fresh spices. Large clean...

Clean, spacious, and overlooking the forest, Jungle View was a wonderful place. We had 3 rooms, all were spotless, with terrace or balcony. We arrived in the evening, and couldn't believe how loud the crickets were - but no bugs in the room and very few mosquitos. A short walk or rickshaw drive from the main street and bus station,...
