  • Great location and place to relax for a couple of days

  • Manus place is awesome! When you first arrive you can feel like you’re stuck in the middle of nowhere, but everything is so easily accessible! You can grab a moto from the town close by and get to any destination in the area for just a couple hundred rupees. Or they will order you taxi to pick you up from the house. Manu and his family are super friendly and helpful. With super delicious meals prepared fresh each day for breakfast, dinner and lunch. Highly recommended, thanks again Manu!

  • Beautiful. Very relaxing and enjoyed just hanging out. Adored Charlie the cat! I bought him a raw chicken that was kept in the fridge so he would get fed some meat. Feel free to feed him! He will also sleep with you if you like. That being said it's a great place to stay and do nothing. Except for an occasional canoe ride. Very comfortable. I plan on coming back again!

  • The location and the view from the property is so much better than the pictures (I know you think it can’t be possible but it is!) We stayed in the corner room, and to wake up, draw the curtains and look out onto the water was heaven. Manu went above and beyond as a host, organised our airport transfer at short notice, and even 2 cold beers at 11pm when we arrived. We went on a beautiful boat tour, the food is great. Honestly can’t fault this place. Thank you, we’ll definitely be back!

    Danielle2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Room consistent with the photos, therefore a terrace at the water's edge. Manu is an attentive and very friendly host. Meals can be taken in the hotel restaurant just behind which welcomes almost exclusively Ayurvedic people from the clinic opposite. Lots of French and a cheerful outdoor dining atmosphere. Construction in progress for another building but which did not bother us because at the back of the room. Beautiful morning in the middle of many flocks of birds.

  • If you’re looking for an authentic, chilled experience with beautiful surroundings and tonnes of nature this is your spot. The room was clean, with loads of character, and with a few personal touches, making it simple and special. The location was perfect, as we were tucked away by the backwaters but could still get to the nearest beach and into fort kochi by bus. After arriving from Goa I was so happy to be in a peaceful place with no tourists. I made friends with the guests who were attending their pancha karma ayurvedic retreat who stay next to this secluded, and dreamy room. You have the option to socialise and isolate yourself. Manu our host was so helpful - He organised everything with ease and communication. Helping with the busses, tuk tuks, boats.. everything! He even let me practise yoga on his roof. Thanks manu for making this a trip to remember. Will be back and DEFINITELY recommend. The energy of this place is a dream.

    Hello everyone Sea hut is a home stay with 4 independent double bed rooms on a common veranda.The room has a king size double bed and an aircon in it. Its a perfect retreat for tourist who want to run away from the hectic city's.
    Sitting on the wooden pavement of "OUR SEA HUT". Mild sunray's, mild breeze flowing across my face, listning to the sound of the ocean whispering to come closer to it. A home which reminds you of the years old heritage. a place which doesnt need any technologies to keep you engrossed. the nature alone takes to a different world. a world away from noise and pollution. the house is enveloped in the beauty of the ancient times. the architecture designs and the pillars take you back to those times when the ancient kings used to reside. The main attraction is the backyard of this place. A huge background where children can play on the sand the house has indoor open veranda to enjoy the calmness. there is a particular feel which takes you out of your world of worries and into a calm surrounding. Where you forget everything and lay back to enjoy the calmness Surrounded by sea on the background which keeps calling you to come and see how she dances and sing. sometimes it also shows how her sea-children the dolphins play and jump in the air.The sunrise and the sunset always surpises you with a different story they tell you An excellent place to enjoy your vacation with the traditional kerela food. A complete privacy once you enter this place. Its a HOME away from HOME, and as they say nothing like HOME.
  • I had spent a wonderful 11 days at Sharath's homestay. A warm, hospitable family. I particularly enjoyed the location. The Arabian Sea right by the house, where you only have to climb down the rock wall. The current there is strong. But since I was always in contact with the ground, I saw no danger of going into the water. In the morning I watched the fishermen with their old barges while fishing and dolphins swam past the shore almost every day. In the garden you could only hear the sea and the cries of the crows, how I enjoyed the hammocks! The guests who came were always calm, pleasant people. In 10 min. I was with the Tuckutuck in Fort Kochi. An ideal place for solo travelers as well, which offers a lot of peace and fresh air in addition to the offers from Fort Kochi. So all around I can highly recommend this beautiful place. Sabine

  • Very very beautiful place. Value for money . We loved our stay .

    Elizabeth2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sea Hut is a beautiful old family house behind the sea wall, a few km south of Fort Kochi on Beach Road. It's simple, but the hosts are very generous and kind, happy to share their knowledge about Kerala, and the food is fantastic.

  • Beautiful place

    Tej2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a lovely homestay! It was the first stop on my partner’s and my trip to Kerala, and Sharath and everyone made us feel very at home right away. The property is lovely, with hammocks to relax in around the courtyard AND a fun little tree swing, as well as the ocean close enough to hear the waves as you fall asleep at night. The breakfasts were wonderful (with an option for Kerala breakfast or a more English breakfast). They also offer lunch and dinner, and were very flexible with our tastes (great veggie food)! It’s about a 20 minute walk (or very quick tuk tuk ride) to the popular sights of fort Kochi, so great location. I highly recommend!

    Nicole2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Sea Hut homestead is a peaceful place where you can count on Sharath support and mum's attention for all your need. The ocean melody makes your stay very relaxing.

    Nathalie2019-10-18T00:00:00Z

  • Manu is a great host! He arranged for a driver to come and pick us up in Alappuzha and greeted me and my friend when we arrived in the evening. We were also able to have a late dinner 😊 My room was lovely. Bright and clean and with AC too!!! It had a large veranda where I could do yoga in the mornings or just sit and relax and look out over the garden and back water. This is indeed a family run Homestay as Manu says. I met quite a few of his family members including his mother and grandmother who are all delightful and welcoming. Manu was great at answering my questions and offering advice. I also did the Village Cycle Tour and Birdwatching with his friend, Tubin. An absolute highlight and highly recommended! All in all, a wonderful stay. I would definitely visit again!

    Natalie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, relaxing. All kinds of people from all over. River is so peaceful. I would sit for hours, just relaxing. Great family hosting. Manu is very kind. Love Charlie the cat!!!

    Susan Dee2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Manu’s place is such a unique location, literally on the waterway the views and sounds of birds and wildlife were amazing,. The living area and bathrooms was spotless, Manu was fantastic at communicating and helping to organise excursions, we would highly recommend the bird watching/bike tour with Manu’s friend Tubin, it was a lovely way to get around and see different places in the area including a fishing harbour and the traditional Chinese fishing nets, he provides binoculars and is very knowledgeable about local bird species. The sunrise cruise was also a great experience although it might be worth pointing out to the boatman that you’d like to be facing the sunrise whilst cruising, we spent most of the sunrise sailing facing away from the sunrise which defeated the purpose somewhat! We took an Uber to the local beach (15 min drive) for around £2.50 and a tuk tuk back for around the same price The food at the communal area was outstanding and the price was unbelievable, breakfast was around £1.50 each and dinner around £2 each, they are set meals and you are left feeling very satisfied! The house is adjacent to another accommodation housing lots of guests having treatment at the Ayurvedic clinic across the water, not really our cup of tea but you have your own private balcony if you don’t want to socialise communally My only criticism would be the bed...which was very firm with a fairly thin mattress and only one pillow each, but that is just personal preference and I prefer a slightly less firm bed to sleep on All in all a great trip, lovely area and fantastic host!...highly recommended! :-)

    Lisa2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • First of all Manu is a great Organizer, He is looking after everything that needs to be arranged , like taxitransport etc. We had some interresting talks thank you there for. The room is exactly like advertised and clean , great point. For me I had a bit problems with moskitos in the room only 1 night, just close windows early enough in the evening. There would be even moskitonet, if needed. But I do not like to put it it limitises the roomsize and makes you feel trapped. Even if the place seems remote, its very lively because there is a lot of people next door at manus cousin place that are for ayurveda at matindia in the morning. So its very lively there all eat together. Over all a nice experience and I wish all the best for that beautyful family of Manu.

    Angela2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 6 days here. The view from the room and the big private terrace were wonderful. Manu and very relaxed and gave us plenty of good local tips. I highly recommend taking Tubin’s cycle and birdwatching tour.

    Debbie2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Manu’s place is much quieter than other places in the backwaters, which is lovely when you want a few days rest and tranquility. Food at his cousin’s place next door is plentiful, tasty and inexpensive. The views are stunning, and can be enjoyed whilst lying in one of the numerous hammocks. Highly recommended.

  • Beautiful..enjoyed every moment

    Aalok2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a amazing place with the greatest of sea views, especially when you would want to be in a secluded place away from the chaotic world outside. You can relax in the hammock/bed out there in the verandah with the sounds of the sea. Things you can do out there is have a good walk alongside the cliff and get down in the beaches there. If you still want to go out they have a dedicated autorickshaw for the guests. This place is much suitable for short trips . Food is not bad. The care taker is really sweet and he can cook as per your wishes. In short, Rejuvenating and Relaxing place.

    Koushik2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful. We sat and watched the sunset every evening with our home cooked meal. Mr Jobin was a great host and an excellent cook. We wanted to relax and this place was perfect for that. It was in a quiet area that we really liked. We could take a walk along the cliff top, either to Varkala (with more beaches, lots of shops and restaurants), or we could walk to a local fishing village and watch the hub of activity. We swam in the sea everyday in the quiet beach just in front of the accomodation. Perfect getaway.

    Fiona2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This place is like a dream and you have to pinch yourself to believe its beauty •Its so beautifully done even the kind of music thats played is asethitic 🙏 Compared to our stay in Taj Gateway this is pure bliss and Jubin the care taker left no stone to give us food coma :) One of the best sunset of our lives enjoying from the terrece with total privacy except for the coffee and yummy snacks by jubin for company . There is almost a private beach 10 steps away and you can just enjoy the sound of waves with view 24*7. Its a life time experience and we already are planning for our next visit .

    Sandeep2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was a wonderful stay . The Property was beautiful and everything was well taken care of. Jobin was a very kind and helpful and is a great chef. We enjoyed staying and will definitely recommend it :-)

    Neha2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • The Perfect place to stay in Varkala with an amazing vue and situation near the beach ! Thanks for Jobim for his kindness and intentions we recommend highly!

    Arielle2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place was way beyond our expectations, especially with the hospitality and cooking included by Jobin. The gorgeous location, comfortable space, lovely walk to Varkala town, semi-private beach next to the apartment, candlelight dinners with homemade wine, fresh juice with breakfast, local tips, the list goes on. I highly recommend giving Privasea a try!

  • Our 6 day stay at the Lake House was the crowning glory to our three week trip around Kerala. We visited the area in 2018 and almost booked it then but ended up at Malobar Escapes Purity Resort two miles down the lake. We loved it there but price rises at the resort made the Lake House a better choice this time round. Our booking and communications were excellently handled by AirBnB and Sangeetha. The final stages were dealt with by Prakash, the house manager, on whatsapp. I can't add to the previous excellent comments about the house. It is stylish and comfortable. The only things missing for us were sunbeds or comfy rattan chairs on the terrace where most of the visual action occured overlooking the lake. A swimming pool would have been the icing on the cake but the house was amazing enough without me redesigning it! Our room was very comfortable with air con that enabled us to retreat during the hottest part of the day - which was up to 96 Fahrenheit. Prakash and Kavitha took great care of us and the food was excellent. Prakash sorted out beer and wine along with the usual lake excursions. We can only mark the house and experience as 10/10 and would definitely revisit if we come again. Thank you Sangeetha, Prakash and Kavitha for a wonderful stay.

    Chris2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • There really isn’t anything we can add to the previous reviews.The house is in a beautiful location , within amazing gardens and with a beautiful interior, it is a truly tranquil experience made an absolute delight by Prakash who looks after the house and cooking alongside Kavitha . They are ever present to look after all your needs but are in no way intrusive. The trips that Prakash organised for us were fabulous and gave a real feel for authentic Indian life.Our last day was Valentines and Prakash set out a meal on banana leaves and showed

    Andrew2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lake House exceeded our expectations. The house and surroundings are gorgeous and beautifully maintained. The location of the house is phenomenal - you have a very peaceful section of the banks of Lake Vembanad all to yourself. You can watch local fishermen operate the Chinese fishing nets right next to the house if you’re up early, you can get picked up by boat right from the house and go to Pathiramanal Island nearby, or on a longer boat ride across the lake. Prakash, the caretaker is a wonderful host, excellent cook, and a very friendly and thoughtful person. Having been to other parts of the backwaters and the lake on this trip, I reach the conclusion that Lake House is the most perfect place to experience Lake Vembanad and the backwaters.

    Aditi2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house that is artfully decorated and offers great views from every corner of the property. Situated right on the lake, the house offers great views of lake Vembanad and an opportunity to jump onto a Shikara right from the garden. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Sangeetha’s place. Prakash and Kavita cooked some great food and took really good care of us while we were there. The place is also only 20mins from Marari beach. If you are looking for some quiet time don’t miss Sangeetha’s place.

    Amit2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Sangeetha was very friendly whenever we had queries. She has a beautiful home, with lots of space to just relax looking at the lake or watching the birds. And a library with lots of books. Our grandchildren loved the garden, and even fed the fish in the pond. Boats coming right to the house were an added delight! Prakash arranged perfect transportation for our trips to Marari Beach, elephant ride, and on the lake. He and Kavita gave us delicious Kerala food for every meal, topping it off with coconut souffle on the last day!

    Rajeev2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautiful with a wonderful garden and view of the lake. A very relaxing place to be. We wished we could have stayed longer.

    Kate2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • We came here during Diwali in 2019. We are a family of four with two you g children and also had my in-laws come as well. The house is beautiful and the caretakers of the house are excellent. They made amazing food for us everyday, were able to easily organize excursions like boat rides across the lake and car/rickshaws when we needed, and kept the place very clean. We got the best of all worlds since we got some rain while we were there which made the property very nice and cool during the day. We would highly recommend staying here.

This is a Pure eco friendly place
    Marayur is the only place in Kerala that has natural sandalwood forests. Ancient dolmens and rock paintings in Marayur date back to the Stone Age. Marayur claims to be a part of a Stone Age civilization that is as old as 10,000 B.C. Marayoor Sandalwood Forest and Jaggery Making units are few of the unique local attractions here..
    Explore the village on your cycles or enjoy trekking to the sandalwood forests or just simply explore the wild, go around for a beautiful river side walk. If you would like to trek/hike, there are plenty of places around (Like the blissful river side walk in the morning) and also at far (like the Meesapulimala/Chinnar/Suryanelli etc), just let us know and we will be happy to help you. If you are the ones who just want to stay put with your books & coffee and unwind; or may be a bit of both, we say why not! You could also try learning local culinary experience, pottery or interact with the local craftsmen. Anamudi Peak is about 40 mins from the holiday home, while Chinnar wildlife sanctuary and beautiful thoovanam water falls is just about 20 mins drive away. We can also help you arrange cabs for sightseeing.
  • Mudhouse is an amazing experience. Staff over there are the best I have seen so far on Airbnb.

    Bollu2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Mud house is something different you can smell the mud as you entered so must visit place very calm place and clean and the hospitality what we received was great.

    Sohail2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this place absolutely. We had a wonderful time in the wilderness, hiding from the afternoon heat in the mud house, and walking to nearby sights in the morning and evening hours. We were in contact with the property manager (?), Ajith and the local help, Ajay, who cooked for us. We were really well provided for, despite the remoteness of the place. Do follow Ajith’s instructions to download offline maps before heading there as cellular signal on those mountains is poor.

    Lalitha2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The Mudhouse is a little slice of heaven in Marayoor! I didn't want to leave! Roopa/Agith wasn't physically present during my stay but he was constantly communicating with me via WhatsApp helping me to arrange sight seeing and cater to my requirements. Ajay, the caretaker on site, was so sweet and kind and as helpful as possible given our language barrier. He and the team did their best to cater to my post-panchakarma (Ayuervedic treatment) dietary requirements, and the food was delicious. Everybody was very accomodating. The Mudhouse itself is gorgeous - the bathroom is spectacular, the bed is very comfortable, the decor is wonderful, the balcony is such a perfect place to rest after a day of sightseeing. The local area is beautiful and the drive to Munnar is a must. Ajith organised a lovely and very helpful driver who shared his local knowledge with me. The Tree House is an added bonus! And during my stay there was some construction of a rest area and fire pit adjacent to the kitchen, I imagine it will be even more wonderful when these extra ammenities are in place! Would highly recommend a stay here!

  • Blindly go for it. Really it's a nice place,

    Nagarajan2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Ajith is a great host. His local connections are very good and he is very friendly. Ajay is the one who is always available to cook anything you ask. Dinesh is an another guy who stays around the property with his wife and kid. He takes care of the property very well.

    Supreet2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay. The accommodation is very nice. The meals were delicious and varied. We were extremely well received by a couple present on site, who did everything to make us feel good. I hope Roopa is aware of the qualities of these people who work for him, they are exceptional

    Florence2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • The mudhouse experience was one of a kind. The place was very unique with the open air shower and beautiful local art on the walls. It was very clean and well kept with a very attentive caretaker and cook who prepared mouthwatering meals. We absolutely loved it and hope to come back with a group of friends to share in the simple yet elegant experience.

    Munnar, Kerala, India

    We are family looking forward to hosting you at a comfortable and cozy house that is set amidst a carpet of green, overlooked by dense forest and the occasional witness to wildlife such as the Indian Gaur and the Barking Deer. With ample space to go on walks, treks and taking in nature, this is an ideal place for a blissful weekend getaway!
    We are situated in a quiet, peaceful space that consists of a two floor, two bedroom and two bathroom homestay. This is accompanied by a deck with a beautiful view (especially sunrises) and a dining room/kitchenette. We also do enjoy meals with our guests and look forward to amazing conversations over lovely home-cooked food.
    Our house is in the middle of tea plantations and many occasions we could see Indian Gaur grassing as single or as herds. The sight sun rise from the deck is so beautiful.
  • The place is located amidst a tea garden, and it's very picturesque. The house is beautiful and very tastefully furnished. The amenities are perfect for a very comfortable stay. Ms. Anupa, Shawn's mom cooks really well and she was kind enough to cook us several meals and always served more variety of food than requested. She also kept us company during the meals and it's lovely talking to her. We overstayed our visit by some hours and the hosts did not mind and did not charge us for it though we were willing to pay. We loved their dogs who are very friendly. In all we loved the place, the people who host it and will probably visit again.

  • The best Hospitality experience we had for our two day stay at Nilgiri's Calling Mr. and Mrs. Jacob were really amazing to make guests Feel@Home. In the past I had been to many home stay's but never liked most of the stays..but this stay at Nilgiri's Calling blown my mind away. One more important thing I have to mention is the food cooked by Mrs. Jacob with extra love and care was very tasty. The view from the balcony suite is mesmerizing and peaceful The rooms are clean and neat. Mr. and Mrs. Jacob guided us really well to visit the places around Ooty and Coonor. Kids had good interaction with pets, dogs Ira and Pax. Catty Nia and her 4 Kittens , Cage free Chickens , Bee Hive. You can spot different kinds of Birds around. Yes...you can find sparrows too which are out of the city these days. Honestly enjoyed the stay far from the City hustle bustle and Office life. This Home really deserve 5+ rating. Helper Mr. Durba was kind enough to make stay memorable. Thanks again Mr. Jacob and Family..All the best and god bless. Regards, Darshan , Raju , Sowmya, Sharada, Daivik, Samarth and Punit.

  • This one has my heart! The house is very pretty with a kind of view you'd want to wake up to every day. It is sparkling clean, comfy and well equipped with an amazing host. Mr. Stephen was kind enough to lend one of his bikes to us. The family is very welcoming and warm. Definitely one of the best Airbnb experiences we've had.

    Zainab2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • I spent seven glorious nights at Mr Jacob's place in Kotagiri. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to take it easy, recharge your batteries and experience the beautiful mountain weather of Coonoor/Kotagiri. The apartment is clean, has a great view of the tea plantation, and its deck is terrific to see the sunrise and the night stars. The kitchen has a fridge, a microwave and a water filter and met most of my needs. I did not have a car for the week and decided to walk everywhere. The nearest village is 2 kms away and takes 15-20mins to get to on foot. I did rent a car one day to see the sights of Coonoor, and that worked out wonderfully. Mr and Mrs Jacob are lovely hosts, and I would recommend (almost insist) that you eat all your meals in their house. It's simple, elegant, tasty Indian cooking at its best. Someone from the family almost always sits with you while you eat, and you can find out more about life in Kotagiri. Mr Stephen Jacob was kind enough to drive me to Kodanad Sunrise Point for a brilliant sunrise. Doorba ji, the housekeeper, went above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable, and I am grateful for that. I enjoyed my interactions with Shawn (whose photographs are lovely and all over the house) and Yohan, and they were wonderful, friendly boys who are talented and kind human beings. I went on a morning hike with Anthony anna to a nearby hill, and it was delightful. But undoubtedly, my favourite part of the week I spent there was spending time with the two dogs. Pax, who is a 3-year-old Rottweiler and Ira is a 3-month-old Labrador, and they completely captured my heart. They are the sweetest dogs in the world, and if you like spending time with dogs, Pax and Ira will make the stay worth it on their might. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience warm hospitality, lovely people and beautiful pets. The view is just the icing on the cake. I can't wait to go back and relive my week.

  • Thanks for being a great host. Your place was amazing & will definently recommend to our friends & family . Food was home cooked very deliciously for additional charge. View is so amazing that pictures doesn't do any justice. Morning trail walk with this view was breathtaking. My whole family of 7 adult's & 1 kid was able to accommodate nicely, it's a spacious private property. All recommendations made by Mr.Stephen was worth it to try for sure. Hope to go there again in future. This was my 1st family get together after 10 years and they made it more amazing.

    Fatima2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Shawn's father came to pick us up in his car because our taxi broke down 7 kilometres before the property. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and the overall property was just amazing to stay at. I'd definitely want to come again whenever time permits next.

    Saurabh2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • A great location and stay for two families of ours. Morning we got up with birds chirping. A mesmerizing view from the balcony. Very clean and well managed property with wonderful Superhost. We had a great time with Mr. and Mrs. Stephen. Our kids had a great time with pets. Must tell that the special dinner prepared was awesome. Must try their home made pickle. Caretaker Drubha was very helpful. I will definitely recommend the place for families who want to have good times in the midst of nature.

    Nabanita2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is quite and nice place midway between Ooty and Conoor. If you want to enjoy quite and relaxed time with your family and friends, this is the best place to choose. The surroundings are lush green and picturesque. We loved our time here

    Naveen2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is an amazing option if you’re looking for a relaxed time close to the sea. It has a breathtaking view. And the beef curry served was just amazing. Pictures came out so beautifully as it has a gorgeous view. 100% recommended

    Indhran2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Jasar has a beautiful place right on the cliff, a 5-minute walk from the Edava beach. All our requests were taken care of with a smile - food, scooter, cycle, yoga mats, cab. We had great breakfast on both days, appam on one day and iddiyappam on the next. The inside of the room is nothing to write home about. But it meets all needs. And the location makes up for it in every which way. We would definitely come back.

    Aashimi2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage can be hard to find but is in a beautiful setting overlooking the sea. You can fall asleep hearing the waves and wake up surrounded by palm trees and a beautiful breakfast! The walk along to Varkala was shady and had a breeze and was 30-45 minutes but very pleasant overall and lots of cafés and hotels on the way, but this spot is away from the main beach and very peaceful. We wished we had more than one night here! We didn’t order food as we hadn’t planned ahead but there were plenty of options in Varkala in all prices ranges. There was also excellent homemade juice but this was 100 rupees per juice so a little more pricey than you may get elsewhere, I don’t know what the price for dinner was, but the breakfast was very high quality and tasty (we went for the Keralan option but we had a choice!). Would recommend as a treat!

    Rosie2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful ten days at Jasar’s place. The villa is at the far north end of varkala cliff. You can easily walk the length of the cliff in about 40 mins but equally Jamal, his manager, is always st the end of what’s ap to arrange a tuk tuk if you prefer. The villa is really comfortable , very spacious, has a kitchenette with large fridge and kettle and terrace with loungers. They will arrange food which is excellent . The most exemplary part is the service . Always with a smile , no request is too large; they arranged for our bags to be mended, money changed, daily laundry, juices, lassi, cookery classes, the list was endless ... They asked what we would like for dinner and we requested a paneer curry. It was only after we had eaten it that they revealed they had brought in a special chef to cook it. It was amazing! Thank you so much, we had a fabulous time ! 😁🐬☀️

    Naomi2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely quiet out of the way little cottage north of Varkala beach. The caretaker lives on site, is really friendly and helpful, and serves an excellent & filling breakfast every morning. He will also organise tuk-tuks to and from Varkala Beach which is 4.5km away. This journey costs Rs 150 each way. The cottage is very clean with a big bed, quiet a/c and a big shower/bathroom. This is a great place to stay if you are happy to be a few km from the centre of the "cliff" and it's restaurants and Varkala beach which we were. There isn't much nearby and during our stay, the local beach was not accessible as the tides were too high. The up-side is a very quiet location and a great night's sleep.

    Bruce2019-03-29T00:00:00Z

    Azhar2019-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 2 glorious nights at the cottage. It was just what we needed, a little getaway away from all of the hustle and bustle of the cliff. The location is right next to the little village and temple, which we enjoyed visiting. This kind of village vibe was what we were looking for. The lovely couple that looks after the place were the epitome of hospitality. We had only planned to eat dinner there the first night, but the delicious homemade Kerala cuisine had us ordering every meal there!

    This is a self-catering cottage with a bedroom/ living area, kitchen/dining room and an en suite bathroom. With exposed brick walls, walnut finished wood and hand painted tiles, Ivy Cottage is delightfully shabby chic. Rustic and yet luxurious, its red, white and black color theme and art work reflect local tribal culture and the animals of the Nilgiris. An entire wall of floor to ceiling windows look out on a private patio and gardens and a stunning view. Gardens are shared with other guests.
    Just 7 kilometers outside of Ooty town, this property is close to all the major tourist highlights but is secluded and remote at the same time. Away from the hustle and bustle of Ooty town, Ivy Cottage is a serene and peaceful retreat, overlooking tea estates, wild forest and mountain ridges. Two other houses, Stumpfields and Bilberry share the 1.5 acre property. Bilberry Cottage is directly above Ivy Cottage. This is a mountain retreat, not a five star hotel. We have staff here during the day to support guests, but not at night. We have beautifully equipped kitchens so you can cook your own food, but we do not have a restaurant. We understand if you do not wish to cook on your vacation, so you can hire one of our ladies for a "Book A Cook" option, (please see the house manual for more details). There is Highland Hotel with a good restaurant just 1.5 km away. We urge only resilient, nature loving, independent, resourceful, adventuresome people to book a holiday here. Its a wild and steep terrain, and at night you will not hear the noise of traffic, but rather the sound of wind in the trees, owls in the dark, rain on the roofs, bird and animal calls. While the evenings may have firelight, candles and electricity, once the lights are out, it will be pitch dark all around. When skies are clear the stars and moon are perhaps the most beautiful you will ever see. Its something about being in the mountains 8,000 ft high, with no pollution covering the atmosphere. Other times of the year, especially in the monsoon, its just incredibly dark. The mountains of Ooty are also very cool year round, especially at night. While the indoors are warm and cozy, mountain air outside is brisk! For those who want complete luxury, room service, wifi, TV's, a restaurant, and 24 hour staff service we recommend you book a hotel in the town of Ooty. Come here ready to unplug from emails and the internet, TV's and movies, and try curling up by the oil heater with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Let your body and mind re-set and re-charge as you decompress and let the nature around you remind you there is a different way to live. A little iron gate invites a short walk into national reserve forest surrounding the Stumpfield property. A private flight of stone steps leads down to the orchard of fruit trees and herb garden. If you look carefully you might find some strawberries as well! Feel free to pick your own herbs, spring onions or leeks, or just sit back and sip some tea at the garden table. For those who want some serious hiking, just ask our helpful caretaker who can either guide you or point you in the right direction.
    We live in the wilderness, completely secluded with no other neighbors around. You probably won't feel too isolated because we have two other houses on the property, with guests and staff during the day. At the end of our drive, along a main road is a small village where the local tea-pickers reside. You can catch a glimpse of this village from the balcony of the cottage. There is a dry goods shop in Buttercombai, which has rice, sugar, tea, lentils, onions and eggs. At the top of Thumanatty Road and Kotaghiri Rd. junction there is an Aavin store with all dairy products, just. 5 km away. At that lookout point, local villagers also sell vegetables and eggs. You can also order food from a couple restaurants that delivery straight to your cottage. For greater variety be sure to shop for food in Ooty town before arriving at Stumpfields. I'll have salt, pepper, tea, coffee, biscuits, cumin, chili powder, coriander, and turmeric powder and oil. So, if you are planning to cook, please bring your fresh veggies and or meat and fruit. Since we live at the top of the mountain, we have a freshwater well, and you can drink straight from the tap, no boiling needed, so don't plan on buying water. Since Ooty is 7 km from, its best to buy your food in the market in Ooty before arriving at the cottage.
  • It is a great place..always recommended

    Vibson2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place with a breathtaking view of the Nilgiris.

    Yohan2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had stayed at Ivy to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The house is the most beautiful place in all of Ooty. We loved our stay here. Enjoyed the thoughtful spaces in the house and the pretty upholstery. The garden and the views were breathtaking. The three dogs were very friendly and came to play with us everyday. Hariharan was very helpful throughout our trip. The whole experience was so enjoyable. The house is very peaceful and away from all the hustle bustle of the town. I highly recommend this place.

    Tanmai2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Stumpfields was a true gift. Breakfasts with gorgeous views, the friendliest dogs, a homey and beautifully decorated space, and truly wonderful hospitality! Stay here for peace!

    Abbey2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The place is great and the information provided by the host was very helpful in deciding our trip. The place was very clean with all the basic amenities. The view was spectacular (especially the sunrise). The company of the dogs makes the stay more memorable (Azhagi followed us everywhere, Waza showed us the place were we can see the best view and Konjam was such a playful dog copying whatever the other two were doing). Time flies by playing with the dogs. I would surely come again to Mala's place on my next trip to Kotagiri/Ooty. I would recommend travellers to read the description carefully and then decide to book. This place may not be everyone's cup of tea. Things such as uneven driveway to Villa, roaming dogs, no restaurants, inconsistent network, no staffs during night, steep walking could bother many, but none was a problem for us. The stay and view is all worth all of it. I would recommend the place to everyone.

    Vinod2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

    Niyati2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • The views from the cottage are just stunning. Can spend hours just sitting on the garden swing and staring at the garden filled with flowers and the mountains beyond. Very classy cottage with very good amenities. The only thing that could be better is the pavement /path that leads up to the cottage where parking is. It was uneven , dirt roads for most part. Also, they are not kidding when they say the hike up to the cottage is steep! If you are okay with that, fabulous place worth staying.

  • Great place to stay if you are in Varkala. Amazing views and extremely clean place. Jasar was very quick in responding all the queries. And amazing hospitality and service by both manager and care taker of the property. Overall, great stay.

    Simran2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend Jasar's place. The location is perfect, as you're walking distance from the bars and restaurants but removed from the fray. We loved the view and the wonderful hospitality (the breakfast was wonderful!). I highly recommend.

    Marcus2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • 1. Highly recommended place of stay. 2. The place is wonderfully located. Close to the beach but away from the crowds. 3. Really neat rooms. Great space inside. 4. Outside the rooms was awesome. Huge space in the nature with the hammocks and swings. 5. Most awesome part was the view- located on top of the cliff with the beautiful blue sea waves hitting the cliff was an amazing site to hear and experience. 6. Great response from the staff. 7. Customised meals on order. So this is great place for anyone who loves the sea and wants to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

    Apurva2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place!

    Sarfaraz2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at these cosy cottages last month and it exceeded our expectation. Jasar was absolutely helpful, quick to respond and dropped in to say Hello. All our queries were met promptly and there were no hassles with any of the check in and check out process. The cottage is set in a beautiful location with the sea at your doorstep and it was secluded yet felt completely safe. The interior is beautifully set, clean and all rooms well appointed and tastefully decorated.The caretakers were around at all times but did not take away the privacy and they were at hand each time you needed them. As it was off season we found it tricky to find good restaurants but that did not affect the stay as the food served was delicious and we had meals( breakfast and dinner)everyday at the cottage. The beach is just couple of minutes of walk and we had it all to ourselves. We would definitely recommend this lovely place.

    Bigy2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • The location was woow... Within 100m was a cliff, north to the main cliff and walk down past 300m you get a 2 small lovely beaches, far from the crowd it was fun. The breakfast was perfect. The helper man was polite and with kids getting customade menu was comfortable. Suggestions: Bathroom blinds can be made for privacy. Generator backup for AC would be adding to the luxury Looking forward to stay longer in future

    Vivek2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot on the cliff above the beach overlooking the Arabian Sea. Lovely sunsets. We made it to Varkala Cliff twice by walking but mainly took advantage of the tuk tuks for transportation that were arranged by Jasar’s staff. Good wi-fi and air conditioning. Jasar’s place was a great introduction to Kerala.

    Patricia2019-04-30T00:00:00Z

    Do you have a special holiday house in mind, a unique getaway, be the first among your friends to visit– perhaps a holiday house which offers something out of the ordinary? non-commercial, a place closer to mother nature Then this is your ultimate village living with modern facilities, situated at Marayoor, about 1 hour from Munnar, Surrounded by the treasured Sandalwood forest, 30 minutes from Eravikulam National Park, 30 mins from Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary. This is a Pure eco friendly place
    Marayur is the only place in Kerala that has natural sandalwood forests. Ancient dolmens and rock paintings in Marayur date back to the Stone Age. Marayur claims to be a part of a Stone Age civilization that is as old as 10,000 B.C. Marayoor Sandalwood Forest and Jaggery Making units are few of the unique local attractions here..
    Explore the village on your cycles or enjoy trekking to the sandalwood forests or just simply explore the wild, go around for a beautiful river side walk. If you would like to trek/hike, there are plenty of places around (Like the blissful river side walk in the morning) and also at far (like the Meesapulimala/Chinnar/Suryanelli etc), just let us know and we will be happy to help you. If you are the ones who just want to stay put with your books & coffee and unwind; or may be a bit of both, we say why not! You could also try learning local culinary experience, pottery or interact with the local craftsmen. Anamudi Peak is about 40 mins from the holiday home, while Chinnar wildlife sanctuary and beautiful thoovanam water falls is just about 20 mins drive away. We can also help you arrange cabs for sightseeing.
  • The experience was way beyond what we expected. The cook/manager was very accommodating, open to feedback, and quick to help us. We moved to a different cottage for a better view without any hassles and that cottage was AMAZING. There is inertia when you experience something like this and there were no other guests, but tbh, I want to go back. Life was simple, no network helped in some ways. Food was exceptional, would recommend informing the cook to make less quantity as we felt bad not eating all (we did ask for less). Each day food was so light and delicious. Housekeepers were very polite and helpful. The room was very clean and utilities at our disposal were throughful. As simple as giving water with added herbs was very nice. Bathing area is a beautiful highlight, where you practically bathe under the sky. The only issue we faced was when wifi was also down and we had no way to reach anyone. We felt maybe adding a landline for emergencies can help, even if it chargeable to the customer. Overall, this is a place I would come back to in a year when all the construction is over and would recommend to others as well. It's a beautiful concept. Thank you for having us. Cheers!!

    Tanvi2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • It was a lovely, relaxing stay. Would love to come back.

    Alyssa2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • A different experience, away from all noise and pollution. It’s not a standalone home, but you get a peaceful place.

    Geevar2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Don't miss this out! If you're really into an unique, local, quality and secluded experience, the mud house is your place to stay. The mud house family really made up our trip, we truly enjoyed their hospitality, food, venue, facilities and local tips. Not to say the drive to this place is also worth the time. The journey was topped up by the amazing morning views that we found in this hidden gem. In addition, there's som much to see and explore in the surroundings. Thanks for your kindness and hospitality again. I really wish I'm able to come back in future and see how this beautiful project evolves.

    Angela2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The MudHouse was a perfect stay in the Munnar-Marayoor region. Over the last years, the growing interest over this region has made it almost impossible to find a quiet and preserved stay in these Moutains. Search no more : the MudHouse is the haven you have been looking for! The team has been really nice to us, providing us with a lot of advice, incredible food (the best of our stay) and a constant enthusiasm ! The lovely traditional mud houses are equiped with everything you need. This is all really confortable and well designed. Make sure to climb on the watch tower to hear the birds when the sun goes down. This will probably remain the more peaceful of your memories in India.

    Léa2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay, very quiet and peaceful in a very rustic part of marayoor.. great cottage.. good staff and good food.. nothing really to complain... Go there for at least 3 to 4 days... You won't be disappointed...

    Thomson2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Mud house was a perfect weekend getaway from the bustling energies of Bangalore. Located in an extremely calm and as yet untouched part of Sahyadris, the property is suited for a complete rejuvenation. The hospitality and thoughtful touches make the place unique. Treks to thoovanam waterfalls and annakottapara highly recommended.

    Srujith2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • All we can say is.. book this place ASAP and give yourselves at least 4 nights. We travelled all over the south of India for 4 weeks and this little gem was our favourite. The location is off the main tourist trail, which is what makes it so special! You can wander around the village for a chai with the locals, ride bicycles, walk along waterfalls or just relax and soak in the serenity. We also chose to visit Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary which was spectacular. We were fortunate to meet one of the owners Ajith who was really passionate and so welcoming. AJ who manages the place and does all the cooking is absolutely amazing, he can’t do enough for you. We’d suggest choosing to book meals as it is a bit remote and they are extremely reasonable, we were practically rolling home. We’ll be returning in future for sure :)

    Manish2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, great hosts and delicious food. That's what you can expect from this stay. The couple managing the house would beat a 5 star hospitality. The aunty made us a delicious multi course Coorgy dinner. Their pet Labrador Buffy was a joy to play with. Coming to the best part - A very personal coffee and plantation tour of their owned estate. Never seen such an amount of coffee beans, black peppers and the most delicious oranges we ever had! Don't have enough words to describe the amazing experience we had.

  • If you are looking for Homestay experience then look no further as this place is the best place to stay. We felt that we were at our own families place away from city hustle bustle . If you don't mind staying little far from Madikeri town this is the best option out there. We had a relaxing and enjoyable time and would definitely come back here when next in coorg. The food prepared by aunty was super delicious . Family of Gagan were all super hospitable and best people to hand out with.

    Nestled in the Nilgiri Mountains at 8,000ft, just below Doddabetta Peak, this self-catering apartment with a fully equipped kitchen has a master bedroom and a sleeping loft. Surrounded by reserve forest and tea plantations, the view is stunning. On the same property is the large house, Stumpfields, which also hosts guests when the owners are travelling, and a smaller apartment, Ivy just below Bilberry, that hosts two guests. While each house is fully private, the gardens and grounds are shared.
    Just 7 kilometers outside of Ooty town, this property is close to all the major tourist highlights but is secluded and remote at the same time. Away from the hustle and bustle of Ooty town, Bilberry Cottage is a family-friendly peaceful retreat, overlooking tea estates, wild forest, and mountain ridges. We have staff here during the day to support guests, and at night our staff are only a phone call away should there be any questions or concerns. We have well-equipped kitchens so you can cook your own food. If you would rather hire one of our ladies to cook for you please bring your own groceries and look at our" BOOK A COOK" option found in our house manual. We urge only resilient, nature loving, independent, resourceful, adventuresome people to book a holiday here. Our property is not suitable for guests who have major medical concerns, who are unable to walk 300 meters up a hill or who are very elderly. Its a wild and steep terrain, and at night you will not hear the noise of traffic, but rather the sound of wind in the trees, owls in the dark, rain on the roofs, bird and animal calls. While the evenings may have firelight, candles and electricity, once the lights are out, it will be pitch dark all around. When skies are clear the stars and moon are perhaps the most beautiful you will ever see. Its something about being in the mountains 8,000 ft high, with no pollution covering the atmosphere. Other times of the year, especially in the monsoon, its just incredibly dark. The mountains of Ooty are cool year round, especially at night. While the indoors are warm and cozy, the mountain air outside is brisk! For those who want room service, wifi, TV's, a restaurant, and 24-hour staff service we recommend you book a hotel in the town of Ooty. Come here ready to unplug from emails and the internet, TV's and movies, and try curling up by the wood stove with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Let your body and mind re-set and re-charge as you decompress and let the nature around you remind you there is a different way to live.
    We live in the wilderness, completely secluded with no other houses around, except Stumpfields and Ivy. However, since there are usually other guests on our property and staff present in the day time, you won't feel completely isolated. At the end of our drive, along a main road is a small village where the local tea-pickers reside. You can catch a glimpse of this village from the balcony of the cottage. We are in the middle of a totally undeveloped 10 acre piece of land that is surrounded by and overlooks government reserve forest. Our access to trails, extraordinary views, glimpses of wild animals and wide variety of birds in this high altitude rain forset and peace and solitude make our place unique among the overly commercialized, over crowded tourist hotels and inns in and around Ooty. We take pride in our efforts to protect the environment around our house. We keep our grounds and the surrounding forest and pastures around us clean with absolutely zero litter. We ask that you help us keep it pristine.
  • I have visited this place thrice already. Have stayed in all 3 properties - Ivy, Bilberry and Stumpfields. All 3 have its own charm. Please don't think twice before booking either of the three depending on the no of people travelling. I don't shy away from calling this my home away from home. You will be spellbound by the thoughtful touches, hospitality, dogs, balcony, swing, garden, and I can just go on. Waza and Allegria officially made me dog lovers. You will be surprised by how playful they are. Irrespective of the mindset you are in, a couple of nights here, and you will go back in peace :) Only prerequisite to Stumpfields and Ooty in general - An experienced driver :)

    Kushal2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing property with breathtaking views. The cottages are sparkling clean, have balconies with stunning views, and are adequately stocked. There are large lawns where you can loiter around or play with the hosts' 3 lovely dogs. The property borders the forest so you sometimes get to see Bison grazing around. I highly recommend this place for nature lovers who enjoy silence (definitely not a place for loud parties).

    Dileep2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Would definitely recommend a trip to Ooty just to stay at mala’s wonderful home. Everything here is just perfect right and has something which will appeal to adults and kids too. Cant wait to be back.

    Nikita2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place. It must be one of the best stay i ever had.

    Sunu2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • romantic, spacious, with a breathtaking view! the grounds are well manicured and gorgeous. do plan to spend some time at the cottage to take in the atmosphere. few tips: 1) i do recommend you get a driver or have your own ride. we arranged one at the bus station. finding an uber from the cottage is difficult . 2) bring some house slippers or woolen socks. the stone floors get cold in the winter. while the hot water in the shower didn’t last too long we heated our own water for a bucket bath quite comfortably. the fireplace was charming and we enjoyed curling up to it. Hari is such a helpful gent and a great resource! despite minor logistical inconveniences of getting there and leaving, staying outside of ooty is 100% worth the effort! We definitely unplugged, woke up to the sunrise cresting over the mountains, and breathed fresh misty mountain air. would def stay again!

    Sonny2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • The location and property are great with an amazing view of the hills. The dogs are very friendly and well-behaved. The only problem was hot water. The geezer takes too long but the hot water lasts only for a few minutes. Regarding food, the nearest restaurant (5 star) is 1.3 km away. Otherwise, you can drive down to the town, which is 6 km further. They also have an option of book-a-cook, but you need to get groceries. If these options are not feasible, you can just get something on the way back from the town and heat it up later for dinner; there's a fully equipped kitchen. P.S. Do not be surprised to see herbivores like bison, sambar, hare, etc. in the front yard after dusk.

    Amogh2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • A must place in ooty to stay if you want to enjoy the perfect countryside life. It has the perfect setup for a couple, a family or even for friends. Waking up to such an amazing view with such a well maintained garden is a bliss to the eyes. The caretakers Hari, Parvati and Devi will welcome with the sweetest smile and the three dogs will host you along. The provision of kitchen and the fireplace makes it extra special. The use of the such simple things to make it so gorgeous will definitely woo your heart as it did mine.

  • Amazing place, amazing view, amazing staff and has a lovely time.

    Kiran2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We were fortunate to stay with Sai and the team for a week to celebrate our son's first birthday. From the moment we first contacted Sai, he was extremely helpful in arranging our trip and accommodating our young son. Sai and his team go the extra mile to make your holiday special, even arranging a birthday cake for our son and decorating the pool area, which was such a lovely touch. The location is perfect and we really enjoyed the massages, yoga and cooking classes that Sai arranged. The food was outstanding and we didn't eat the same meal twice. Thank you Sai and the team for a wonderful stay.

    Heidi2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Sai and his team took great care of us and were super helpful when we had questions, wanted to book taxis etc. He even took us to visit his coffee plantation :) The food was awesome, Sai and the kitchen staff always made sure to check what our preferences were for lunch and dinner. If you're looking for a peaceful and secluded place with gorgeous views. This is your place

    Magnus2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing experience overall, and Mr. Sai is an exceptional host.

    Tanuj2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Mr. Sai's VDL was a treat in all senses. The B Villa that we stayed at was beautiful, clean and we had a brilliant view to the lake. The Spanish decor in the villa made it extra charming. The facilities in the room were thoughtfully arranged by Mr. Sai. From luggage racks to cupboards with lock& keys, to furniture with wheels to move if we wanted to, from mesh on the windows to keep bugs and mosquitoes at bay, to universal power sockets that accommodate any charger from any country, everything was meticulously arranged with utmost thought. The review would be incomplete if we fail to mention about the food - it was finger-licking good! Tender coconut pudding is worth mentioning. They also give a snacks menu to order from, as we desire. A kettle, coffee, tea, sugar, water, milk powder, mini-fridge - these were provided in the room. The surroundings were beautiful, just like a picture. Our early mornings were filled with bird noises and the beautiful view of lake and mountain. The infinity pool was clean and there was also an authentic spa where trained masseuse can come if needed. To tell about the host, Mr. Sai is an extraordinary gentleman who is passionate about hospitality and determined to provide the best to his clients. He interacted very well with us and was a gentle and gracious host. We had a pleasant, calm. relaxing stay at VDL and we would, most definitely definitely go back there if we visit Wayanad again. Thanks again. Elsa & Siju.

    Elsa2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Food , ambience , staff were immaculate ! So much positive and happy vibes all around the place. I wish to come here again soon.

    Esha2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • I visited VDL last time in 2018 for my holidays and told Sai I will be coming with my wife again this year and we did so. The place is still as peaceful as before away from all the traffic and air pollution. You only hear the noise of the nature at night with the awesome view to the lake and hills in backdrop. The new chef is as good or even better than the old chef, I have definitely put on some weight after this trip. Sai as always was there to receive us and we really appreciate the effort he put into it as he came just to receive us during his busy schedule. This host is a very humble man who let's you feel at home and always wanting to come back. The rooms were sparkling clean and I was well taken care of as the host made sure I had a tea pot of hot tea to get me going during the cold nights. This was a short trip again but as I promised I will be back next year for a longer period just to spend some quality time @ VDL

  • My family and I had a relaxing time at Karthik's property. Our plan for next time is to have more people stay (we were three adults and two kids). The onsite staff were courteous and helpful and the chef cooked us a delicious dinner. We enjoyed ourselves at this beautiful place and would certainly recommend it to families or group of friends planning to stay in Ooty.

    Ryan2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a gem. So quiet and peaceful. Fluffy clean towels. Quality mattress and place is cleaned everyday. We felt at home. The caretakers were very nice. Even though the property is located in a very quiet area we felt very safe. We had home cooked food (at a fee) for dinnr and it tasted great. Definitely a great choice for those visiting ooty.

    Lava2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Karthik is a great host - quick with responses. The place itself is amazing. We broke in the new years here. Rooms are spacious and clean and have Hot water. A lovely reading or general hangout room is thrown in as well The lawns are lovely. The folks running the place are not intrusive at all and are very pleasant (they have a warm-up time like most of us do :)) Given the home style fresh food nature - they need adequate heads up on food. Fresh food so nothing to complain about. Would really recommend for large groups, it's a lot of fun!

    Noah's Nest is a newly launched tree house situated in the same plantation as the famous homestay "Morley's Place". This safe and comfortable room at tree top level has an amazing view of the Periyar river and mountains covered with lush green tea and wooded forests.
    Imagine a place that floats in the sky, a place up high, where you are safe, where you watch the trees swinging in the wind. Imagine a peaceful place, imagine a place where nobody can annoy you, where nobody can see you, and where nobody can find you. Imagine hiding in the verdant foliage, secretly watching colorfull butterflies flutter past, while you nest with the beautiful birds of the western ghats, in a spacious, camouflaged tree house, ethnic and original, fitted with all modern amenities. Imagine the amazing view from the tree house - River Periyar in its virgin mountain identity flowing over time worn rocks, past mountains of well manicured lush tea gardens and Kayak in total bliss through river periyar.
    Get away from the chaos of the city and have an unique experience of life in the good old days.
  • This place is a stunner, the view from the tree houses are just breathtaking. 2 days here was the break we needed from life. Also was a personal touch meeting Abhaham's father, by-chance, and being checked on by Abraham. We loved it, and consider it as one of our special finds.

    Jeffrey2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is out of box property, lush green forest and wonderful opening to Lakeview from tree house. Morning starts with birds chants and stary nights. Must visit place for nature lovers. You can sight variety of birds from your room.

    Dayanand2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely great. The ambience is cool and what i loved most is you will feel like u are close to the nature. A lake is flowing on the front side which u can go for swimming as well as kayaking. During evening the lighting is so good that it look beautiful . Do not miss the sunrise from the mountains which is very beautiful to watch and the host was very kind , he would call us to make sure everything is fine and you can call him or the care taker for any assistance. I will not recommend any one to go out and have food since the near by hotels are not worth. Another important thing is privacy , which will make you completely involved in that space. Go for a walk along the lake side and enjoy the nature

    Akhil2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Noah’s Nest is absolutely stunning. It is a slice of heaven; serene, gorgeous, peaceful, and an emersion in nature. Our host was quick to respond, very helpful, and hospitable. This was our favourite place to stay in India! Highly recommend and would thrilled to return.

    Natalie2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Probably one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Beautiful secluded treehouse just a short way from the town. Ganesh was extremely helpful and was able to call rickshaws to pick us up and order food. You are also able to have campfires and go on the boat in the river in front of the house. Really beautiful stay, I can’t wait to return

    Molly May2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing, it's literally a getaway. The views from the room are amazing. There room was fully stocked up and quite comfortable. Waking up to the sunset and birds each morning was the best part of our stay here. You can hike around the property which is a tea/spice plantation and there's a lake you can kayak/swim in. There are 2 restaurants that deliver lunch/dinner and the caretaker gets you the breakfast. The host went above and beyond in making sure we found the place and had a comfortable stay. 10/10 wold stay here again.

    Abdul2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place was literally paradise. The treehouse exceeded expectations. Located on a tea estate with a beautiful river, this was one of the best airbnbs I’ve ever selected. The caretaker was kind and helpful and the location with great. Was able to wake up to a sunrise through the windows and see the stars at night from the balcony. Close enough to the bus station while being in the middle of nature. Wish I could have spent more time!

    Jessica2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Breathtaking views! Such a beautiful and peaceful place! Totally value for money! Caretaker is very helpful. Short walks around the property are great! But just staring at the magnificent views from the sit out is the best💓 Don't miss out the sunrise from the property and keep a lookout for beautiful birds🙂 Food can be easily ordered from nearby restaurants. It's delivered on your doorstep!

  • This is one of the best AirBNBs I have stayed at in my travels. The place has an amazing grounds keeper, a dedicated kitchen with a reverse osmosis machine, decent internet, hot showers, and comfortable beds. I feel you would probably be hard pressed to find a better AirBNB in Kochi. The AirBNB is the entire second floor of the house. The area is pretty quiet but you can get everywhere quickly via Uber or Ola. Kochi is a very comfortable place to stay longer term in general as you have access to an international style mall. You can get to Kochi Fort which is the hip touristy district in about 30 minutes with Uber/Ola. We were also there during the covid lockdown and I have to say that if there was a place where you would want to be stuck while under lock down in India during a global pandemic, this would be it. While we were there we were fortunate enough to have the parents of the airBNB host on the first floor and they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and we were really blessed by their presence.

  • We had such a wonderful time at Jimis place! Pictures do not do it justice. Having a coffee on the porches with a beautiful view was everything. Excellent location. The caretaker of the house, Jose, was incredible as well and super helpful. The place was super clean and would definitely recommend this place to anyone! We will for sure be back.

    Roberto2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Jimi was a fantastic host. He promptly accommodated our request to postpone the booking because of an emergency. Apart from that, the place was really good. Very family friendly as well as sparkling neat. We as a family have stayed there twice and will continue to keep Jimmy's place as our first option, whenever a cochin trip springs up.

    Kiran2019-12-07T00:00:00Z

    Overlooking the Kabani river, Riverloft is aptly placed for a thorough nature experience. Suitable for any group of upto 5 members maximum. The cottage has one room with a loft, a balcony and a private bathroom. The lower bed can accommodate upto 3 people and the attic/loft bed upto 2. Children will enjoy the variety in the mixed farm and the thrill by the river. Could do your fishing too. Adults can enjoy a relaxed day on the hammock with their book and coffee. A game of cards on the cozy attic, an evening drink on the balcony and barbecue by the campfire with your loved ones, will surely complete the experience. Cottage is within a fenced 2 acre farm. You may leave aside worries of how secure the place is. Cheers.
    Riverloft is situated in a 2 acre mixed farm by the banks of the river Kabani. As the name suggests, we have one room with a cozy attic, balcony overlooking the Kabani river and a private bathroom. We grow, coffee, pepper, nutmegs, areca nuts, coco nuts including other spices, vegetables, fruits and rice. The farm is situated by the road side, providing ease of access. Right across where we are is a 300 acre paddy farming collective, which provides year round occupation for the numerous tribal villages surrounding it. Walking through these fields and among the tribals, gives a real world feel of the life and culture of Wayanad. The elaborate Kerala cuisine, the tribal traditions and local handicrafts add to the flavour of your stay here. Leave it to us to plan your experience here. I personally love sitting by my campfire in the night here taking in the chill which settles during the night.
    We are close to Tholpetty and Muthanga Wildlife sanctuaries, which is home to a variety of animals including the Tiger. These sanctuaries further extend into the Rajiv Gandhi Tiger reserve which was set up under the Project Tiger. Unlike other places, Wayanad is not a single place, its an entire district. There are a host of places to visit which will "awe" you and for the more adventurous, there are a host of activities including very interesting treks and cycling trails. Kuruva Islands, Banasura Sagar Dam, Meenmutty Waterfalls, Karalad Lake, E3 Theme Park, Muneeswarankunnu, Kurumbalakkota, etc are among other attractions nearby.

    Pruthvi2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Kabani Riverside and Dilip and Manu were wonderful hosts and prompt with their responses. The stay included complimentary kerala style breakfasts and the hosts were very helpful with getting autos/cabs to travel around. The estate itself is gorgeous and the house is beautiful.

    Indrajith2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing place to stay while you're in Wayanad district. The loft looks better in person and is beautifully and thoughtfully designed. It's adequately stocked and has everything needed for a pleasant stay. The loft overlooks the Kabani river and there's a private entrance to the riverbank. The best part is certainly Manu and his family's warm hospitality. They'll also give you helpful suggestions about places to visit in Wayanad. I highly recommend this lovely place for your Wayanad trip.

It is very clean and all items necessary - in the large kitchen, in the three bedrooms and bathrooms - are provided. A market you find in walking distance. To go downtown Edapilly or Ernakulam the Ueber cabs take you to all places. The host James Balu gave us lots of valuable advice. His housekeeper Bindu is a good cook as well.

    Enroute the misty hills of Ponmudi, a nature friendly, river hugging retreat that can be a lovely space for a couple, family or artists in residence. Tall roofs and earthen walls translate to surreal evenings, tasteful decor adds to the natural charm. Barbecue by the river, tea spots, pebble balancing, morning jogs by the iron bridge across the river to ever green forest and tribal hamlets. One day is not enough for the real explorer; that is if you managed to come away from the splashy river.
    Entire house
    It is close to the main road leading up to Ponmudi but you’d never feel the proximity once you are inside the compound. The sound of the stream takes you into another world in seconds, though you are close to the road, shops or a restaurant just a walk away Food is not provided at this home stay. There’s minimum facilities to cook like fridge, microwave oven and a portable barbecue grill for the guests to make use. If required the care taker Rajesh can bring food from nearby restaurants.
  • The whole place looks a painting or a piece of art. It was a memorable stay for our family .

    Fajas2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a hidden gem of a place. The serenity of the house, calmness of the river, chirping of the birds all provide an amazing ambience - whether it's for a cut off time with your family or some alone time to think, write or introspection or some fun time with friends. Syamaprasad sir has created a beautiful house, and a really good library too. Rajesh is a really helpful caretaker who is just a call away. The place was kept extremely clean and had almost everything we required. You just cannot go wrong booking this. 6-Stars!

    Arjun2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to take a break from the daily routine. Excellent location and Ideal place to enjoy a vacation close to nature.

    Nibin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Guys. It's a must visit. Not so difficult to find the place. Just follow the description. Best place. When you go down the slope the first thing you notice is the water stream. Almost private apart from few local who use it to dip themselves. Quiet and blissful. We just stayed at the property most of the time. Let's get to the specifics of the property. Nice sit out in the front and the swing. You have a contemporary house with the hall, bedroom and kitchen attached. No complaints on any thing. There's a working fridge, induction stove, utensils, water, blankets and quilts. Even mosquito repellent.

  • Our 3 day stay here was pure bliss. Pictures cannot do justice to how beautiful this place is. It was a perfect getaway and we can't think of a better way to have started the new year... The location is surreal. The place was maintained well. The care taker was very helpful. Couldn't have asked for more. It was a memorable stay.

    James2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for some time unplugged from the day-to-day, head to Ritu. The cottage by the river has an unparalleled charm. My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to explore Ponmudi and the other sights, at the close of the year. The location is fabulous if you want to access Ponmudi or the Kallar Meenmutty falls, or if you want to simply perfect the 'art of doing nothing.' The caretaker, Rajesh, is quite attentive - he ensured our car was parked in a safe spot, and got us lovely hot meals when we wanted to stay in. The kitchen is perfect for preparing quick meals. What we liked the most, was that the place truly allows us to connect with nature - you awaken to bird calls, and the river is a constant cozy gush. We read, relaxed, watched birds and spent time in the river. What a lovely way to end the year.

    Nestled in the Nilgiri Mountains at 8,000ft, just below Doddabetta Peak on 1.5 acres, this self-catering four bedroom house with porches, picnic area and a fireplace is a peaceful getaway. Surrounded by national reserve forests and tea plantations, the view is stunning. Just 7 kilometers outside of Ooty town, this property is close to all the major tourist highlights but is secluded at the same time. You get the entire house to yourself, but share the garden and outdoors with other guests.
    Just 7 kilometers outside of Ooty town, this property is close to all the major tourist highlights but is secluded and remote at the same time. Away from the hustle and bustle of Ooty town, Stumpfields is a peaceful, family-friendly retreat, overlooking tea estates, wild forest, and mountain ridges. Parties, loud music and excessive drinking are not welcome at our home. Guests are asked to respect the quiet hours from 10 pm to 8am. Guests will have exclusive access to the entire house, patio, and picnic table. We have staff here during the day to support guests, and at night, they are only a phone call away should there be any concerns. We have beautifully equipped kitchens so you can cook your own food. However, we understand not everyone wants to cook on their vacation so you can "BOOK A COOK," (see details in house manual). We urge only resilient, nature-loving, independent, resourceful, adventuresome people to book a holiday here. Its a wild and steep terrain, and at night you will not hear the noise of traffic, but rather the sound of wind in the trees, owls in the dark, rain on the roofs, bird and animal calls. While the evenings may have firelight, candles and electricity, once the lights are out, it will be pitch dark all around. When skies are clear the stars and moon are perhaps the most beautiful you will ever see. Its something about being in the mountains 8,000 ft high, with no pollution covering the atmosphere. Other times of the year, especially in the monsoon, it's just incredibly dark. The mountains of Ooty are also very cool year round, especially at night. While the indoors are warm and cozy, the mountain air outside is brisk! For those who want room service, wifi, TV's, a restaurant, and 24-hour staff service we recommend you book a hotel in the town of Ooty. Come here ready to unplug from emails and the internet, TV's and movies, and try curling up by the open fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Let your body and mind re-set and re-charge as you decompress and let the nature around you remind you there is a different way to live.
    We live in the wilderness, completely secluded with no other houses around, except Stumpfields and Ivy. At the end of our drive, along a main road is a small village where the local tea-pickers reside. You can catch a glimpse of this village from the balcony of the cottage. We are in the middle of a totally undeveloped 10 acre piece of land that is surrounded by and overlooks government reserve forest. Our access to trails, extraordinary views, glimpses of wild animals and wide variety of birds in this high altitude rain forset and peace and solitude make our place unique among the overly commercialized, over crowded tourist hotels and inns in and around Ooty. We take pride in our efforts to protect the environment around our house. We keep our grounds and the surrounding forest and pastures around us clean with absolutely zero litter. We ask that you help us keep it pristine. Look for our kitchen compost site near the stairs in the garden and our trash containers located in the garage.
  • Amazing stay. Beautiful view.

    Siddharth2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The place (Stumpfields) was really beautiful. It had its own yard and the rooms were clean and had a amazing views all around. It was a sight to watch sunrise sitting in one of those rooms. Special mention for Hari, Parvathy and Devi. They were really helpful and cooked delicious food. The location is exactly as mentioned in the description. The drive to the top throws you off a little for the first but you will get used to it. I would highly recommend this place if you plan on visiting Ooty.

  • Good 1. Beautiful place & scenery 2. Nice deco and ambiance 3. Clean 4. There is hot water 5. The place is as how it is described 6. Friendly dogs 7. Sheets & Bed were clean 8. Big space of garden to chill and have tea 9. Great place to stay for a big family Bad 1. Our bad we arrived around 7PM plus. It was raining, road were muddy and there was no electricity. For such rare instances like this, the host should guide us till we reach the house door. We thought of going back half way, since we had so much difficulty finding the place, not able to see the road. Felt like driving towards a dead end. But, if you arrive while it is bright, I believe your check in would have been smooth with no issues. To conclude, we had a beautiful stay. Will definitely stay in future. Thank you much for the wonderful experience... :)

    Vijeya2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is one beautiful property. The pictures definitely don’t do justice to how picturesque the place is. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to getaway from the chaos of city life. The interiors are exquisite. You’ll not want to leave the property. The dogs are super friendly and safe. All in all, we had a splendid experience at Stumpfields. Would visit again for sure.

    Suchana2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Mala's place is one of the best AirBnB's I have stayed at! It is a cozy and beautifully done cottage on the inside with breathtaking views on the outside. There's books in almost all bedrooms and the kitchen is very well equipped. It definitely takes you to a different world! Waking up to this view is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The road leading to the cottage is steep and tricky. There are 3 dogs on the premises and they are the friendliest! I definitely recommend visiting Stumpfields when you are in Ooty or just plan a trip to Ooty so you can stay there!

    Shivani2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Stumpfield was a magical place. It brings out child-like joy from within you. We were a group of friends but families with kids will love the stay too. It's absolutely perfect for bonding. Every nook has something special to discover. It's even better than the pictures, really. You can cozy up by the fireplace and read one of the many books placed all over the cottage, cloudgaze/stargaze, take long walks amidst the greens, have lovely tea sessions & brunches on the outdoor picnic table or run around and play with the dogs. Ooty town is just a few minutes drive away and thus easily accessible for grocery shopping and sightseeing (we didn't want to leave the cottage at all, though). The caretakers are very sweet and helpful. All the information you would require is communicated to you beforehand from the hosts. If you're lucky enough to find dates to book this cottage, you can be assured of a wonderful, tranquil and dream-like vacation.

    Sunayana2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Oh, what a spectacular stay we had at Stumpfields. The pictures are accurate and you will find yourself in a serene and calm setting. Do ensure to wake up early for the sunrise - it is simply stunning and magical. We were well prepared for the chilly overnight weather but still had the ladies start us a fire, which was nice. We also brought our own provisions and “Booked a Cook”. The ladies-Parvati and Devi-made the four of us a splendid meal. Superb! Hari, the house manager, was available and ready to answer all of our questions and provide any advice we sought. Hari even went out of his way to call us quickly after our departure to notify us of items we left behind providing us enough time to turn around and retrieve them! An extra special thank you!! We stayed two nights and during our one full day half of our party went in to Ooty town to explore and the other half hiked up to the Tea Park from the estate to explore and returned to sit in the gardens and read. We were all very happy with our time. Stumpfields is simply a treasure - do not miss your opportunity to stay here.

    Nobody goes to Ramassery ? It is a forgettable little South Indian Village and before you can say Madhavikutty Baby (Jack Robinson, loosely translated), you’re knee-deep in paddy fields. What you have is a spectacularly lacklustre destination and pretty much nothing to do.Come early evening, drop in at Saraswathi' tea & idli stall. It appears the Ramassery Idli is internationally celebrated. You can have treatment from Ayurvedic doctors from the neighbouring Village. So, when are you coming ?

  • It was an amazing stay, though I was initially hesitant but it turned out to be one of the best airbnb stays I’ve ever experienced. It’s a beautiful 100 year I’ll extremely well maintained cottage. There’s lot of history and beauty in every part of the house, and I sincerely wish I could stay a little longer. The caretaker Deepak is great cook and ensures the stay is comfortable. Highly recommended to anyone willing to spend time in nature, relaxing and simply doing nothing.

    Prateek2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Myriam's home is beyond incredible! The history has been so well documented and the place has been refurbished so nicely. It's an incredible place that allows you to see the traditional architecture of Kerala while having a modern living experience. Must stay if you want to see the Palakkad area authentically while also staying in luxury.

  • It was the perfect house to spend our first family get-together for our family of 18 members. The house is beautifully and aesthetically decorated in keeping with it's traditional architecture. Deepak(the caretaker) is an excellent host. He single handedly cooked a variety of food for the 18 of us. He always had a positive and helping attitude. The famous Ramassery Idli restaurant is just a few steps away from the house and the people there were kind enough to let us inside the kitchen to watch the making of the idlis! There are many small temples nearby. We discovered a picturesque stone quarry at walking distance from the house! Our family had a great time reconnecting, with good food and great ambiance at Krishna Vilas!

    Aruna2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • It is a unique and fantastic opportunity to stay in a house like Myriam's. We thoroughly enjoyed all beautiful details, the very tasty breakfast and the little village itself. We definitely recommend anyone with an interest in experiencing an authentic India to stay in this beautiful house.

    Annette2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Krishna Vilas is surely for people who want a break from city life and ones who enjoy heritage properties. The restoration and upkeep of the property is fantastic. We enjoyed the simple pleasures of a simple kerala village at ramassery . Deepak was a great help eversmiling and cordial. I would love to go back to Krishna Vilas

    Deepti2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • The house is jaw droppingly beautiful. Deepak was an excellent caretaker. Took care of us really well. Based on other reviews we expected Kerala cuisine but had to settle for North Indian . Even then, the food was really good, absolutely nothing to complain about. The house is old, flooring is old, both very beautiful and the bathroom amenities were all new, so no problem at all. We enjoyed the stay.

    Maheshwar2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • We found this place wonderful and really enjoyed our stay here. It’s off the beaten tourist track in a small village away from main roads. Krishna Vilas is a unique and peaceful place to spend a few days. The space is amazing and based on a very traditional layout, and there is information in the house that tells its story - fascinating! We found it easily using the instructions we were given combined with Google Maps to search for a nearby tea/iddly shop. We were warmly welcomed by Deepak, the caretaker, who helped us with everything we needed and treated us to lovely, home cooked meals and refreshments during our stay, including going out to get some of the famous Ramaserry iddlis for our breakfast. The rooms were spacious and airy and we had our pick of 5 bedrooms to choose from (when you book, you automatically book out the entire place which can sleep up to 9) and we enjoyed spending afternoons on the shady roof terrace watching the birds and appreciating the flowers all around us. Krishna Vilas has been fairly recently restored in keeping with its original character so its facilities are in keeping with that approach - the bathrooms have flushing, pedestal toilets and wash basins, while the shower spaces have more traditional ‘bucket’ showers. While we were there the weather was wonderful and the ceiling fans were easily sufficient for us, however there is no air conditioning, which we didn’t miss at all. This is the kind of place that is great for the more adventurous traveller, rather than those who expect the ‘all mod cons’ of standard hotels anywhere. It is a truly characterful place and not somewhere that could just be transposed to anywhere else in the world - for that reason alone it is special. All in all we would definitely recommend Krishna Vilas to friends and family who ventured away from the tourist hot spots out towards Palakkad!

    Abhinav2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • it was pleasant stay with great hospitality..loved the view ..more of a villa feel than hotel..liked kinda private spacing..perfect for romantic gateaway

    Tarun2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage room is in a very scenic location on the hill top surrounded by trees. Amazing to see the sunrise every morning. I asked for a surprise with cake and balloons which was very well done. Anything outside the rate card such as a cake, taxi or extended check out is charged at a very expensive surge even though they will allow the request. You are stranded to do everything g at the hotel since there is nothing else nearby. Great place for a weekend get away and relaxing in your room.

    Shreya2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • I had booked it as gift for a honeymoon couple and they really enjoyed the place. Awesome location. Their only concern was taste of food could be better given the price paid. Apart from this,they were very happy with the booking. Thanks!

    Lakshmi2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • The Chateau is located in a remote part of Wayanad away from the main tourist spots, which we liked. The only disappointment was when we checked out we were given a document that showed the standard room rate was almost 50% less than what we paid, which made us feel a little stupid.

    James2019-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Chateau Woods and Mosab were amazing hosts. They went above and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable, active and comfortable stay. We definitely recommend this beautiful property to other couples and travelers looking for a relaxing, low key vacation.

  • Great place. We decided to stay on this stationary house boat, since we wanted to have more flexibility. I would recommend this instead of a house boat trip, because the houseboats dont move and night anyway and you can start great trips from here. Jijo, the owner, organized everything for us and speaks english very good. Hot water worked without issues for us. Overall it was a great experience with even more great tours organized by Jijo

    Robert2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Jijo was very cooperative and helped us about local market and whereabouts. It was a pleasant stay aj Canoe Ville.

    Badal2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Canoe ville was a unique experience with a floating bedroom built on 2 canoes. The courtyard also opened up to houseboats docking so we could easily board a houseboat from there as well. Our stay was pleasant and there was alsoa hammock and swing and fishing available. Jijo was veryhelpful in finding local transportation, he set us up with a scooter one day and a special party auto (tuk tuk alpy) to kochi. The meals were also homemade and service was excellent. We highly recommend trying out the canoe vill experience

  • You would love staying here , jijo being an attentive host ! He would take utmost care in helping with your requests . The stay would be as per the description , but the only thing is you will have issues with the mobile network. There is no wifi, and jio will not work here . Bsnl works fine . So be prepared for this part . Other than that, the pricing , the location , privacy, stay is all good! They also have house boats , check them out too! Thanks !

    Uma K2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Warm and caring host. A clean and cosy place and amazing food.

    Raj2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Canoe Ville! This place... what can I write here that can capture our time here accurately! Jijo is an amazing host and ensured that my travel partner and I had a serene time. The experience of staying in a mini house boat of our own, with its amazing thoughtful touches was bliss-filled for us. The Canoe was a beautiful home away from home for us, in the midst of mother nature. Our morning kattan kaapi (black tea) while facing the sheer expanse of the Vembanad lake with a book, was surreal. Jijo ensured that we had our mini Kuttanadan experience, complete with scrumptious food his mom cooked and also while on a Shikkara ride with Rahul! So a big thanks to Jijo, Salam (who was at our beck and call for all our transport needs), Rahul and the sweet Cheta, who ensured that we enjoyed and quick and short break. My next stint there will be soon!

    Patsy2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place exceeds expectations and is more than a value for money. Jijo is one of the warmest hosts ever. We booked the canoe ville which is a one of a kind boat house on 2 canoes on a canal just 10 mtrs from the extensive stretch of backwaters. The ambience is beautiful. Also special mention for Rahul who made our Alleppey trip beautiful with the shikhara ride on the lovely backwaters. He knows beautiful places where you can enjoy authentic Kerala cuisine on banana leaf and small shacks by the backwaters where you can enjoy the local drink Toddy. And last but not the least, the tuktuk driver Abdul has been absolutely great. On the day of our arrival he took us to Jijo’s place(which might have been a little tricky to find) and the next day he took us to our next destination Kochi in his tuktuk through village roads while covering Marari beach and virgin places where the sea meets the backwaters. On the whole, me and my wife had an amazing trip and would love to come back soon.

  • The hospitality and sincerity of the caretaker Mr. Sanjay is amazing. The view is beautiful. The location is neighter too far nor to close to the relatively crowded place of Madikeri. The place has a very rustic feel to it, which everyone of us has enjoyed. For me personally, it's ideal to just chiil and not worry about a thing in the regular world. 😊

    Dibas2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic, place with stunning sceneries and a great staff. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    Srujith2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful location, scenic views and exemplary assistance from Sanjay who can takes care of most of your needs with a smile.

    Mahesh2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • There’s a great view, and what others have said about the caretaker, Sanjay, is absolutely true. With a few small changes (changing up some old furniture, a quick paint job) this is a great and comfortable space with an amazing view.

    Reshma2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Tanglewood is located in the midst of a forested area, overlooking a valley. The view is excellent. The independent bungalow is spacious and very neatly maintained. It's a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Sanjay the caretaker made our stay extremely comfortable. He is helpful and looked after us very well. Breakfast prepared by him was delectable. We liked all aspects of our stay in Tanglewood. Location, view, privacy, space, neatness, hospitality√√√√√

    Mysore2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to relax and spend time with family and friends. The view from first floor is worth all the money. The stay is very close to numerous hotels to try the local delicacy. Excellent service from Sanjay the caretaker. Had a great time and would love to visit many a times again !!

    Santhosh2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Location- 5 stars, no comparison about it with watsoever properties. Sanjay bhai was just just just too good.. He helped us for each and everything. View was mesmerising..serene place... All in all, a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE of Coorg. We wish to book it again just and just for a stay in the property with Sanjaybhai. Property is a CAKE and SANJAYBHAI is ICING ON THE CAKE. 😊🍰👌🙏👍

    Nirav2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • I have never had a better experience while travelling! We (group of 6) stayed here for 2 days and it was the best experience ever. Location of the house is superb, very near to Madikeri and all shops, restaurants and view points are very very close to the house. We did not face any issues reaching this place, Google maps can help you drove down to this place. The best thing was, even being so near to the town, the house had a beautiful view to offer and was very peaceful. The house has such an antique touch to it that you would fall in love at first site. The bedrooms are so cute and cosy, the open terrace area was our favourite. It's the perfect place to chill out with your group. There was a kitchen with all necessary things. Everything was super super clean. It actually felt like a house! Coming to the next best part- the caretaker, Sanjay. He just added so much comfort to our stay with his warm welcoming nature! He cooked for us (from tea, coffee to full meals), he went down to the market everytime we wanted to order something, he gave us good idea on which points to visit. The first morning we got up and were enjoying our tea outside, we came to our rooms with blankets wrapped and everything clean! That's the detail of hospitality he had to offer.. I can go on and on about what all was good about this place. Though we are back now, but it's still difficult to get over this awesome trip and this house. I will surely visit this place again.. Thanks Debbie for letting us into your house and help us create some great memories.. :)

    The farm is primarily a biodiversity restoration and conservation initiative run by my family. A laid-back, almost ethereal spot for the traveller who is drawn to nature. Hike up to the cliff or saunter along fern and wild flower bordered trails. Get to know the butterflies and birds, or simply read a book and unwind in one of our several semi-outdoor spaces.
    A perfect hide-out for the discerning traveler who wants to experience nature in her raw beauty, our farm is tucked away from the main Vagamon town and has many secrets to offer for the plant lover, the foodie and the adventurer.
    Vagamon situated on the border of Idukki district amidst rolling hills and tea plantations, falls in the Western Ghats or Sahyadri mountain ranges, a 'UNESCO ' World Heritage site and is one of the biodiversity hotpots of the world. In Vagamon the dominant landscape is grasslands, Shola forests and tea. A quick hike up neighbouring hills provide breathtaking sunrise/sunset views. Kurisumala Ashram (a Monastery in Syro-Malankara Catholic Church) in the immediate neighbourhood is a highlight of historical and social significance. The foot hills on the lower side of Vagamon extend up to Teekoy town. To the north east is Munnar(120km) and a shorter drive down south east will get you to Periyar Tiger Reserve(65km).
  • A very beautiful place enhanced by the owners' great hospitality. It's the best spot to unwind, relax and eat delicious food.

    Rares2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Where do I start? Little Flower Farms is a magical place with a special quality that makes you feel immediately at home. Saji (the manager) greeted me when I arrived and showed me to my room. The room was gorgeous! Clean and stylish but simple, with some lovely thoughtful touches such as filtered water in beautiful bottles, gingham sheets and handmade beeswax soaps in the bathroom. French windows opened onto a balcony and there was also a lovely area for guests to sit and admire the view. (I particularly loved the hanging coloured bottles). Saji then took me on a tour of the property. Be prepared for lots of steps! The food here is wonderful. Saji is such a great cook! He lays everything out so beautifully and thoughtfully. There was fresh fruit and home-made pineapple 🍍 jam for breakfast and two delicious evening meals. Thomas and his wife Rekha are wonderful hosts. Rekha came and sat with me on my first night and made me feel very welcome. We also had a long chat over breakfast the next morning, which as a solo female traveller, I really appreciated. Thomas takes such wonderful care of the farm and you can sense that it is a real labour of love. I came away with some organic pepper (from the farm), a pot of pineapple jam and the sense that I was truly blessed and privileged to have stayed in such a wonderful place with these lovely 😊 people. Thank you 😊 I can’t wait to visit again.

    Natalie2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic space, gorgeous views and great hosts. A lovely place to unplug from the outside world.

    Shruti2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely incredible. Travelled from the other side of the globe to visit the farm for a few days. Totally worth it. Amazing property, delicious food, and fantastic hospitality from Thomas and his staff.

    Ryan2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • A very beautiful place. This truly defines co-existence with nature. Hoping to visit again soon... :) It was a truly wonderful experience to have been sitting in such a beautiful place at night having the most meaningful of discussions with total strangers (we became good friends since our meeting) who shared wild and captivating thoughts and truly made that night a memorable one for us. Thanks a lot for hosting us guys!! Regards, Sneha & Navaneeth

    Navaneeth2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Little Flower Farms is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Saji, the property manager was always around to take care of our every need. All the meals we had at the property kept getting better with every bite. Thattukam (the deck) was very relaxing and we spent most of the time enjoying the breeze. We kept exploring the trails and were fascinated by the amount of work Thomas and the team has done to maintain the natural beauty of the farm. We would love to visit again, preferably after monsoons.

    Nithin2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had the best experience staying at the Little Flower Farm. The place is idyllic, the food amazing and the hospitality outstanding. We spent 3 days here and enjoyed the stunning nature and the calmness, as well as the company of the hosts Thomas and Rekha. We definitely recommend this place to anyone who loves nature and who is looking for a peaceful & happy place.

    Michelle2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot stress enough what a luxury it is to find a spot that's as lush and private as this place. The property has been created in such a way that there are lots of quiet pockets to spend your time. The pool is a dream, feels a lot like a natural pond surrounded by ferns and trees, and we had it all to ourselves whenever we decided to jump in. It's a great getaway if you like being outdoors. Thomas suggested a bunch of things for us to do during the day, so we managed a quick hike and a scenic drive during our stay. Gold star for this place. I'd go back in a blink.

    An olde English cottage nestled away in a safe gated community. Private garden surroundings. 1.5 kms from Sims Park and the Bedford Market area. Good for couples, solo travellers and especially women.
    The cottage is located at the end of a safe gated colony. We are close to the natural forest, and have trees on one side and a garden all round to enjoy.
  • If you are looking for a home-like stay in a perfectly peaceful location - this is it!! Sabrina offers the real-feel experience in a way only the early AirBnB offers did. When you are her guest you will be taken care of the same way your own Indian mashi/aunty would. Her cook, Rani, is out of this world - we have eaten her dinners and their beyond! The cottage is nearby really lovely hiking routes, yet being in a walking distance to the city. Recommended to nature and peace lovers, seeking to learn about living in Nilgiris.

    Magdalena2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most wonderful time in Kenilworth cottage! Sabrina aunty is a great host and the house is just beautiful. Every nook in the house is decorated oh-so-beautifully by Sabrina aunty's sister; and now that I am back in the grind of work and a big city, I find myself homesick for Kenilworth cottage and Sabrina aunty's warm and kind hospitality! The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden, with a profusion of flowers, and a review would absolutely be incomplete without the mention of the delicious dinners and breakfasts we had. Rani amma cooked mouth-watering meals, which were lovingly served by Sabrina aunty. The conversation in the house never ran dry, with the most interesting stories about Sabrina aunty's illustrious family. If one wants a memorable holiday in salubrious Coonoor in a colonial home, which takes you back in time, with wholesome and delicious food, great conversation, and loving care and hospitality: Kenilworth is the homestay to go to! There's so much more I want to write; about the books that one can sit back and read in the Sun room, which is surrounded by wild roses and other flowers, which is filled with the fragrance of pine and other trees and the tea that was served.. Or the dining room which was filled with warm light from the skylight as we had delicious cheese omelettes for breakfast.. Each moment spent in Kenilworth, is worth capturing in pictures or words or both.

    Pratima2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Sabrinas house is picturesque with an amazing energy - that Sabrina has too. A totally immersive experience

    Daniel2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sabrina aunty is the most caring and gracious host ever. In the 3 days that we spent with her, she pampered us with homemade cookies, bread and mousse.. along with wonderful stories from her family’s illustrious past. The food cooked by Rani Amma was absolutely wholesome and delicious. It is amazing how Sabrina aunty has kept this house spotlessly clean all by herself ! Her attention to detail in all matters relating to guests’ comfort is commendable. All in all a superb experience. Thankyou Aunty !

    Malini2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • I had a really nice time staying at Sabrina Aunty's place. She is a wonderful person and her hospitality was just fantastic. She went out of her way to help in various ways. The house is a 100 years old and has all kinds of great quirks. It is set at the end of a road in a beautiful neighborhood of bungalows surrounded by gorgeous tea gardens. The food at Sabrina place is just really delicious so you should certainly opt for it when she asks. It's worth it! She even baked some fresh bread for me right in her kitchen! Overall a wonderful stay, and would certainly recommend it to everyone.

    Ravi2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Literal homestay , home cooked food , vintage tastet done home and it is being run by an ironlady

    Divya2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Imagine you have an aunt in Coonoor, who insists that you come and stay with her as she came to know that you were visiting. Staying here would be something similar to that, you'll be doted on and be served excellent home cooked food with love and care. A big thank you to both Sabrina Aunty and Raani Aunty for taking care of us. The place is an old British cottage, very charming and quirky. We spent most of our time in the sun room doing nothing in particular, and we enjoyed it!

    Anoop Kumar2019-11-17T00:00:00Z

  • Very relaxing environment. The houses are well constructed and maintained. The beds were not very comfortable though. Food is very good, but a little expensive.

    Praveen2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location and back to basics living without compromising on food, housing or hospitality. The host stood out as well, as they organised both our travel to and from the Mudhouse while also helping us experience the surrounding area. Food (dinner and lunch) offered on top is excellent and a great price. Regardless of all this, one would find it hard to complain about anything while staying in this beautiful and rich area of the Western Ghats.

    Dominic2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Being at Mudhouse is like being at heart of nature and greenery. If you have ever thought of getting away from the busy city life or stay at a place where you would feel at home, then Mudhouse should be there on the list as top priority. A beautiful place, a wonderful stay, friendly staff and host.....all that can make you happy staying at a place is there at Mudhouse. Go ahead and book this place without any second thoughts... Happy staying at Mudhouse.

  • The interior and the exterior were very well thought. The place has a nice earthy smell and an open restroom which reminded us of our childhood. The food was amazing. Caretakers were very helpful with arranging us cabs to visit Munnar and also setting up campfire. I would recommend this place for anyone who enjoys connecting with nature and wants a relaxed vacation.

  • A perfect getaway place, far from noisy and commercialized munnar, peaceful and absolutely nature touching. The concept of Mudhouse gives you a whole new distinctive flavor of the architecture, the natural air-conditioning science behind it, the rooms, the bathrooms, the lawn, everything complementing to the serene environment, perhaps the only Mudhouse in India. It's a must experience place. Exceptional service by the host Ajith and the caretaker Ajay. Love the food, the barbecues, everything was top notch. It's a Fifer for me :-)

  • It was great experience staying at mudhouse, something i have never done before. The breakfast and dinner were good. The host was quick to reply to any queries we had. The location was a bit off. Its about an hour away from munnar. That was the only thing that bothered us rest all the things were awesome. Great stay worth it.

    Built on tall stilts, The cabin is a 100 year old converted Granary, now a beautiful cottage with the balcony overlooking vast expanses of coffee estates, surrounded by fruit trees on all sides & minimally intrusive to the surrounding nature. Pls note the location is a bit off on Airbnb. Pls see g-maps for a more accurate location.
    Standing on tall stilts, this wooden cottage is a warm blend of luxury and homeliness. The cottage is essentially a 100 year old granary converted to make it a romantic haven, nestled amidst vast acres of coffee estates, overlooking the elephant corridor. Discover Serenity. Soak in the Hospitality. Experience Coorg. With an amazing symphony of birdsongs all day long and the perfect blend of luxury and homeliness it just cannot get more romantic than this!
  • We spent a lovely weekend at the Souland Estates, staying at all their cottages. Each cottage had its own charm and made us feel right at home. The hosts were gracious and helpful in every way they could. Thank you for the wonderful experience, it was great getting to know a lovely family! :) PS. Oh and we had the best Coorgi pork curry at Souland. Thank you Jyothsna. :)

  • We enjoyed the stay very much ❤️ Joythsna was very helpful and the food was really amazing

  • Must place to try, the stay in granary feels like staying in the words :)

    Abdul2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • In a simple sentence, do not miss out on staying here! It's simply amazing. The family that hosts, is super amazing. The food was as though my mom made it. It's not surprising since some ingredients are actually from the same estate and is locally sourced. The granary was cute and cozy. If you like something slightly different than your average resort type rooms, this place is a must go. Be sure to ask the story behind the estate. Everything there has a story and thought behind it. I could keep going. But I shall stop now.

  • We had some wonderful days at he estate and with the family. We stayed at "The Granary". Amazing how you literally live in the middle of nature here, sitting on the terrace surrounded by the trees and the bird sounds, going for walks trough the plantations around the property or taking a bath with djungle panorama... The whole family was so very kind and helpful... helped us for example to find transfers and directions since we travelled without a vehicle and needed some support and local knowledge. The atmosphere at the estate is just so peaceful and relaxing and there is a lot to discover in the surroundings. And the home cooked food - don't even get me started... just so so tasty and lovingly prepared. Thank you so much for everything! We definitely want to come back and we wish your family all the best!

  • The granary was a great place to stay. It's cozy just like the pictures and feels like you're in the middle of an estate with nothing around for miles. The hosts are super warm and hospitable. Jyothsna was quick to respond to all our queries. We had a lovely time at this place. The dam nearby is a great sunset spot. Dinner served by the hosts was simple and homely. Recommended for anyone looking for a quite break away from the city.

    Maria2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • A place which you'll feel like visiting again and should definitely visit. They'll make sure you feel like home and around your people. It was a very relaxing and joyful stay.

    Saket2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Really picturesque location, in the middle of the plantation. We stayed there for a couple of days and went for long walks around the plantation. Only caution is that the granary cabin is smaller than the photo makes it seem.
