I normally do not write reviews but I felt I had to for this one. Excellent home stay for family with kids who are looking to enjoy Wayanad. Natural surroundings with the river and forest makes it a place to start your Wayanad trip. The value for money was more than I expected with the facilities and the hosts hosptiality. I would recommend this place and visit the place again myself. Thank you Greensvista

Room Tip: All rooms have access to the common beautiful balcony

This is one of the best home stays. The experience was awesome right from the point when we entered the property & greeted by Shajan and his wife Alice.
They took very good care of us and served delicious kerala food.
Shajan also showed us around his estate and it was fun to stay there for 2 days. It's centrally located in Wayanad district of Kerela so you can plan many day outings.

Caution: There will be mosquitoes as it's located within woods. Also, if you are going out in jungle, cover your arms & legs otherwise you might get lot of insect bites / itchy skin.

We stayed with Alice and her family for 3 days at new year and it was one of the most inspiring stages of our trip. Right from the doorstep we were adopted by Alice and her husband Matthew. They were great hosts and integrated us directly into their lovely family.

The house is located within a great plantation and is a really calm and peaceful place. From the terrace you have a lovely view into the plantation. We had a spacious room where we felt at home right away. Since it is a bit far of best call them directly so they can describe the directions. If you don't have a car, Kalpetta and Sultan Batery are a good starting point to take a rikshaw.
Matthew organised a great driver for us to take us to all the sights around (which I can highly recommend to explore the Wayanad region if you don't have an own car).

Both Alice and Mathew are great cooks and spoiled us with delicious treats (they were very attentive and flexible cooking some extras since one of us was vegetarian), but even more we enjoyed the open and interesting conversations we had at the dinner table. We learned a lot about indian culture and the every day live here - it was a really inspiring exchange.

The highlight was new years eve, were the whole village was celebrating (infant jesus) and we had the great pleasure to celebrate with the whole family.

The property true to its name is surrounded by greenery. And its not just coffee plantations.
The owner is fond of organic farming and takes pride in taking the guests on walking tours of the property and telling them about various types of plants in the farm.

The homestay has arrangements for playing Table Tennis and Carrom. We used the fonttard to play badminton as well. They also have TV (a common TV in hall) - but with so much to do around, TV was rarely switched on.

It's bit off the track and away from Sultan Bathery and Kalpetta. Hence should be booked only if travelling by own conveyance. But the property is worth the distance. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

The nature of the owners was amicable. Friendly, yet not too intrusive.

Usually breakfast is included in package. We also opted for dinner at additional charges. This was mainly because its bit of a pain to have to travel back to property after having dinner elsewhere. No complaints though - the food was pretty good and worth the charge. We were asked for choices in dinner and what we got was much better than we expected.

From this location - we planned Banasura Sagar Dam and Soochipara falls in one day and the Edakkal caves on the other (after checking out).

All in all - a pretty good place to hang out with friends or travel with family. A relaxing and comforting homestay to spend quality time. Certainly recommended to everyone.

Room Tip: If travelling in a group - take the complete first floor. It has 3 rooms a hall and an indoor playing area (for carom and TT). Else the booking would be done per room basis.

I selected this place based on other travellers good review. But things were little different for me.
I made a reservation for 3 days from 27th to 29th , calling her before a week. she confirmed the reservation over phone. Asked me to call when i reach Ooty ( i was traveling from Coimbatore to ooty and to Waynaad) , but when i called her on 27th , she was completely lost and asked whether i confirmed. Then she suggested an other place , and connected me to that person. We stayed in that place , where they didnt had power back up for fan, so we ended up doing manual fanning for our 2 year old kid for 3 to 4 hours during the night .
She sincerely called the night and asked if things are ok, but unfortunately things were not ok after that.
We vacated the place the next morning and moved to hotel Haritagiri.

Room Tip: Confirm your booking by email or other means , but not by phone.
