The rooms are very spacious, absolutely neat and clean, the bathrooms are also clean. Our room was on the 1st floor and the balcony offered a scenic view. It is located near to the tiger reserve entry point....

After reading reviews from Trip advisor, I decided to book this homestay and when I reached there, I was amazed to see the cleanliness and the space in the room. It was just like an amazing hotel room instead of an homestay. Owner Shibu is very gentle guy. The view from room no. 6 on 2nd floor is just amazing....

The owner was very generous with his time and helped us book various trips. We had a nice breakfast of toast with butter and jam, omelette and coffee brought to the terrace every morning which...

Our host at the home stay, Mr Shibu, was charming and extremely attentive and welcoming. The rooms are ensuite and are spacious, comfortable and well appointed. We had booked a room on the second floor...

Loved this place! One of my top favourite guesthouses in India. Had a phantastic room with great views over the edge of the reserve from my balcony from where I watched numerous birds whilst sipping freshly brewed coffee prepared by the family. The friendly and helpful owners go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable...

We really liked our stay in Kerala house. Not only the views from the rooms and balcony is beautiful but the family that owns the place is very friendly and knows the right people. Through the owner we had our first driver that did not make us feel it would be our last trip. Thekkady is also very nice. Very...

We (Myself, wife and daughter) stayed at Kerala House in July 2015 (Off season). Compared to other hotels, it was the best value for money we could get. The view of the Periyar Reserve from the balcony was also satisfactory. The host Mr. Shibu and his family was very courteous and helpful. Since it was raining, he provided us with...
