“Homely Hideaway”

I came across this place while I was searching for a home-stay at Wayanad that gives enough peace during our Christmas holidays with homely coziness. I believe my choice was perfect. Mr. Jose who runs this home-stay is a young entrepreneur (or agriculturist in his words) who takes extra effort ensuring that his guests are happy at his property. He is accompanied by a talented cook who can prepare authentic Kerala cuisines which we enjoyed a lot. Quantity of food was lavish.

This home stay has two bedrooms which can ideally accommodate two families (Husband, Wife and a Kid in a room). They provide extra beds if required though. Besides, they have a sit-out, living room and a common area that doubles as the dining area with view of the plantation below and the hills farther away. Please note that one bedroom has entrance from the sit-out outside and the other bigger one has entrance from the living area. Both bedrooms have enough storage space and clean attached European style toilets. If hot water is not sufficient please make it a point, the electric geysers are low capacity. The back side of the cottage has Kitchen and other utility area which is used by Jose and his two staff (dining area comes in between both)

During our stay the climate was nice and cool, with mild cold breeze which was a treat. Suggest using lite warm-cloths. We used to spend most of our evenings chitchatting and munching snacks provided by Jose at the sit-out enjoying the breeze, dark silhouettes of distant trees and the open sky with moon and stars above. We enjoyed it so much that we tried to return back by sunset every day.

This place is bit interior, so take route guidance from Jose in advance. I made a mistake by trusting my GPS! If you are in a hurry going around Wayanad and aims to hit all tourist spots in two day, this might not be the best place. This is a place for a patient traveller who wishes to inhale every bit of fresh air around and enjoy nature like you sip a hot coffee on a rainy afternoon. Don’t expect elaborate facilities for kids to play around either. Jose will offer to take you on a trek to his plantation where you can swim in a stream. Unfortunately we couldn’t find enough time for that, may be next time. Hope this review helps.

We have loved our stay here and will definitely come back! It was a lovely and relaxing holiday. The Home was neat and spacious. It is a great location and one of the most beautiful property with a view to die for at every corner. One of the best place do trekking and off Roading. The food was home made and Delicious. We particularly enjoyed the cooking BBQ at night.

On the New years eve of 2015, we rode on 4 Royals & a zoom car from Bangalore to Wayanad Adventures Homestay & were warmly welcomed by our host Jose, a man who wears his hospitality in his glittering smile. Near & well maintained place, lovely home cooked food, away from urban noise & crowd, panoramic view. A must visit place for a silent getaway. Highly recommended. Kudos to the staff & Jose cheta :)

“Words cannot describe how amazing this Stay was!”
Reviewed December 28, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

I, along with my 7 other friends have stayed for 2 nights at Wayanad Adventures Homestay hosted by Mr. Joseph and I must say the place is stunning and looks as it is in the Pictures. The Location is perfect for anyone to get away from busy schedule and spend peaceful time amidst the Nature.

I feel the most important thing for any hotel\stay is Hospitality and Mr. Joseph makes sure that the guests doesn't feel any less than a peaceful home. He is a very humble person and will be there at your service.

The Off-Roading and Trekking to the waterfalls located within the property is for sure that I will remember for days to come.

Would definitely recommend this place for anyone for a short getaway :)

Only suggestion - It would be even more perfect if the guests can choose what to cook for lunch\dinner.

Regards,
Sujith

It was an awesome experience @ this place. This place is very neat and tidy. As we all know, Wayanad is famous for its serene and scenic beauty enclosed in the lap of Mother Nature, I liked to sit outside the room and relax while enjoying the scenic view. The rooms are very spacious and the bathroom is clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Food is homemade. And from this home stay, it is easy to commute to other places also. Overall I would say it is worth the price.

“Great homely atmosphere at the cradle of nature”
Reviewed December 2, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Escape from the daily hassles of life, the traffic, the polluted air and enjoy staying at the cradle of nature at Wayanad. Me and my friend’s families decided to give a break to our daily routines in Bangalore and spend couple of nights at a home-stay in Wayanad, Kerala. At the end of the sojourn, every one of the family members unanimously agreed that it was worth the time and money spent at Wayanad Adventure’s home-stay.
The home-stay is situated right at the bottom of a greenish green mountain and a mini-forest. The home is situated right about 200 metres from the main road, but the climate difference from the main road and that of the home-stay can be immediately felt as the cool breezy mist coming down from the hill hits your face.

We were welcomed by the proprietor who was always there for any help needed and played the perfect host through out. The two bedrooms were nice, cozy, clean and well maintained. Awesome food was waiting for us prepared by the in-house cook who is top notch at his fare. A camp fire was arranged in the night where we spent some considerable amount of time out in the nature.

In the morning a forest trek was arranged in a 4WD jeep and it was a trip worth remembering. The children enjoyed the little streams of water crisscrossing our path and all the other flora and fauna along the way. Our destination was an all natural swimming pool right at the top of the mountain. Since one of my children was suffering from a mild cold attack, we could not venture into the pool. A doctor was available at a hospital which is just 2 KM away from the home-stay.

In conclusion, I could vouch for Wayanad Adventure's home-stay as an ideal getaway for anyone who is seeking to spend time with mother nature.
