This reasonably price home stay has great views from the balconies to the wildlife reserve and ready access to the town. Located near the park entrance the street was not as busy as the downtown area. Rooms are spacious and the breakfast was delightful.

preferred to book in advance.Sibu is the owner and if you contact him before he can help you to book all the places to visit. Location is quite near to Periyar tiger reserve and hence there are lots of option to arrange safari and other visits to Tiger reserve
