We stayed a single night in this homestay and felt very good. They had arranged tickets to Kadhakali center and given us a lift to reach there.The man who look after this homestay was very friendly and gave us tips to explore the local area. Altogether it was a really good option for a budget traveler like me.

Cheryl Rashid and very friendly hosts. Their house is all done, that it is necessary for a good mood: clean rooms, hot water in the bathroom, and filtered water for free. The place is quiet around, there are lots of trees and flowers. ATM, restaurant and a supermarket are within a 5-minute walk. You can ask the owner to cook...

The Dean Dale Cottages are run by a lovely couple. They're very helpful and care for their guests very well. The room in the Fern Dale cottage is clean and although you might need to ask for fresh sheets. The bathroom has running hot and cold water and an excellent shower.

Just far away from the city to surround yourself with nature! Rooms were simple and clean with views amongst the forest! Cheryl is a great host and never stopped helping with day tours and onward travel! Plenty of things to do - elephant rides, national park trips and martial arts show! Highly recommended!
