This was my second visit to Kerala House - a beautiful homestay run by the delightful Shibu and Ranjini. The rooms are very spacious and spotlessly clean, each one has a private balcony where you can sit and look out across to the hills of Periyar Tiger Reserve and see birds and animals such as mongoose and sambar deer. Kumily...

The approach to Kerala House is a little disappointing but arrival on the second floor balcony soon dispatches that. The view is over the edge of Periyar 'Tiger' Reserve. We had a pair of mongoose pass by regularly. We saw jungle pigs, monkeys, water buffaloes and dozens of varieties of birds. Just down the road is the entrance to the...

Place is neat and clean. It is a homestay, owners are courteous and provide good service. This place is very close, hardly 2 min walking distance to Periyar Wildlife Boating, so you can easily have excess to 7:30 AM ride. I booked it in a discount so found it reasonable at that price. Rooms are spacious but don't expect anything...
