We spent three nights at Vanilla County as part of our holiday in Kerala organised through Kerala Connections who specialise in unique properties off the main tourist trail. We were not disappointed.

The house was beautifully maintained and very elegant. Our room was very comfortable with nice homely touches. We particularly enjoyed breakfast in the courtyard. The surroundings were very tranquil and we enjoyed finding out more about the spices growing there. Baby Matthew and Rani made us feel very at home.

A peaceful rural location high up in the hills. Tasty home cooking, home grown coffee and vegetables and plenty of culinary tips. Guided tour of the spice garden, rubber plantation and a dip in the local rock pool. What more could you ask for? You have to give it a try.

A small stream ran by a window to my room - the sound at night was so relaxing. Rani and Baby Matthew are lovely hosts and Maju is a kind...
