Melvin n family have set a benchmark in hospitality. We had a very memorable stay, highly recommend for families. The home stay is situated near the sprawling tea estate. The view is simply refreshing, ideal for a weekend getaway. And not to forget, awesome homemade Kerala cuisine. Loved the food, truly authentic. Satish

The homestay was squeaky clean he didn't allow slippers inside. Very well maintained and in an awesome spot amidst plantations. All u hear all day long is birds chirping. The free breakfast was...

Melvin's Homestay was so wonderful, and a real home away from home. His wife and mother cooked us delicious breakfast and dinner, and Melvin very kindly drove us around to see sights and show us around his plantation, and was always willing to talk with us and give us advice on our trip. It's clear that he totally committed to...
