“Vacation time- a visit to kerala would be ideal to cool of the scorching summer heat, right? Thus was born our vacation destination for this summer- thekkady and alleppey. However, we didn't want the usual places to be a part of our schedule. Even the place that we had chosen for our stay wasnt a hotel, but a home stay- a full villa to ourselves for 2 whole days. Friends Valley in kattappana- great reviews on the internet, centrally located in idukki district with access to munnar, thekkady and vagamon- our location had been chosen! And when we landed at the venue, we were greeted by the caretaker of the villa who was not only helpful, but also a really knowledgeable and caring person. Some of the spots that he recommended were the ones that we had been longing for- a spice garden, a pine forest in idukki, a cave nearby ( and a spectacular one indeed), a park in thekkady, loads of tea estates and of course- a jungle safari filled with elephant rides and jeep adventures and finally- an exotic destination called vagamon. The icing on the cake was the one place that he personally accompanied us to- anjuruli view point! What a spectacular trip it was! The only drawback was the route. If only the roads leading to the place were slightly better, it would have made the journey complete in all respects. After a tired and exciting day, back at the villa, we had a kitchen completely at our disposal( with all provisions in place) to cook ourselves some luscious food. The villa also had solar water heating, great ventilation and fantastic drinking water. Finally, a visit to the nearby pond to feed the fish was the last lovely memory before heading back home. Our mobile phones were filled with pictures and minds etched with vivid memories- etched for a lifetime!”

“We stayed in Soji's place and wow what as experience! It was the highlight of our journey. The room had its own bathroom, both are simple and clean with an independent entrance. Soji's house is beautifully arranged in the middle of an amazing organic living edible forest! We had never seen so many different spices!! Soji and his brother showed us around the farm and taught us about the different fruits and spices they have. It was just great! And also we brought some organic spices from his farm! The family is very loving and we took all the meals with them ad his wife Seenia is an excellent cook! Best Kerala food we had :) We recommend this place if you want to relax, be surrounded by nature and get to know (and buy!) some great organic spices. We will be back for sure.”

“My friend and I had a wonderful time staying with Aneesh and his family. It was a homestay and although we stayed in a separate room, we got to know the family over the course of a few days. All of them were very open and made us feel completely at home - we really hope we will to keep in touch in the future. Aneesh went out of his way to accommodate us - on his day off he took us on a day trip to Munnar which boasts incredible tea plantations, lakes and dams open to public. On the last day, we got to visit the school where Aneesh teaches and he took us to another breath-taking viewpoint nearby with hidden rock faces to climb which we would not have found without him. Our favourite part about the trip was getting to know the family and the local people - everyone was very friendly and open. There is a fantastic community-feel to the remote location and even as tourists we felt more than welcomed into their environment. There was a private bathroom attached to the room and we were able to use their kitchen to make coffees. There was a hot water tap with consistent hot water running. Delicious home cooked meals are available there on request. The house itself is located in a remote village in the mountains - it's about 10min drive to the nearest town where you can get local transport connections to nearby viewpoints/attractions. There are also shops and restaurants in the town serving delicious native foods, chai and coffee. If you are wanting to drink alcohol, it can be hard to find without the help of a local, therefore we recommend bringing from your previous location or duty free. (We have also found this difficult in other parts of Kerala, it is almost a completely dry State). Within a walking distance (40min walk) from the house there is a wild waterfall where you can swim. The pathway down is fairly steep and off the beaten track, meaning a peaceful paradise awaits you at the waterfall's base. We had an incredible time there, would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to have a peaceful break and experience the local culture in Kerala.”
