Being just out the back of the reserve we arrived to lots of wildlife! The staff were so friendly and offered us lots of advice on what to do during our stay! Great room, really clean and spacious!

ALOK TRIPATHI , Feb 27, 2019
This room is amazing. Touches boundary of Periyar National Park. Restaurants just opposite Side. Vegetarian food available. Jain restaurant is also available nearby. Kathakali and Kalari art centre is very close.
An ordinary home stay with excellent hospitality
Raveesh Satheesh , Feb 19, 2019
It's an ordinary home stay, the services are not that professional with no car parking. The special thing to be mentioned is the hospitality of the guest.
ALOK TRIPATHI , Feb 09, 2019
Location is awesome. Boundary of Periyar National Park touches this Homestay. Kathakali centerkalari art center very Near from this place.
Everything is fine. Nice location. Restaurant oppose to Kerala House Homestay.
Good value for money

Great value for money, easily accessible from family and don't go to Thekady cafe which is right in front of home stay, they are the left over leeches from of Thekady forest unlike those leeches the Thekady cafe .

Good home stay, nice location, something need to be improve. Some lights in the room not working. No intercom connection in the room. But very clean property and Mr. Sibu is very nice person and very helpful.

OK arrangement without breakfast or food facility.
Good pleasant stay

SAGAR PAREKH , Dec 24, 2018
Good things. Very clean, neat and big rooms. Owners are good. You can get dinner if give order before 1 hour. Food was good with huge quantity. Ventilation was good. They must provide mosquito nets. We kept all windows and doors close after 6 pm.
Wonderful location and good hospitality

Gaurav Jain , Dec 09, 2018
Superb clean nice view from balcony, nice tea available. Lot of restaurant available nearby. Food not available in home stay.
Clean, neat and near national park boundary
Prasad Krishnapurkar , Nov 14, 2018
Total 10 rooms, we occupied 3. It is on main road behind pizza am outlet. For parking, depend on main road as there is no facility. Another drawback is missing breakfast. Option suggested is owners brothers restaurant. Rooms are big with basic beds. Clean. Bathrooms are also big. National park boundary is same as home stay. We saw samovar deer and various birds seating in room. Recommended.

Homestay is really worth the charge
P C Reddy
This homestay is really worth the charge. It is located in town, close to local activity, yet the sanctuary entrances are within walking distance. The room we had was large, neat and clean, and airy. The beds were large and comfortable. The bathroom was also large and clean. There was piped hot water at specific times, and on request. It may have been the season (mid-January), but there were no mosquitoes (despite the greenery around), and there was no need for reconditioning. There was a sit-out with a view of hills and a sense of openness. (Lots of flowers and birds - we even spotted a hornbill! The host and hostess are cheerful, polite and helpful. They provide food on request (though we didn't have the opportunity to sample their fare). All in all, ideal for a few days' are and are !! We'd give it 5/5 for everything except for facilities. This, alone, we'd rate at 4/5 because 2 facilities could be added - (i) an electric kettle and some crockery so that guests can feel free to make tea/coffee for themselves (ii) a little geyser in the bathroom so that guests could feel free to use hot water without troubling the hosts.
A real home away from home
Beautiful places are always beautiful. What makes them less or more beautiful is human behavior. And this is where Kerala House Homestay scores. The location, the service, these are all excellent. Some might complaint about the non-availability of an in-house restaurant but that's not a problem at all. With scores of those lining the street just outside the Homestay. For our part though we got delicious tea made and served by the owner's family. The owner, Subu and his wife are two oversampling persons ready to assist you anytime and in whichever possible way getting invited to their home and the subsequent long chat was only obvious. Vinoy, Subu's relative is a powerhouse of energy. Always by our side. Facilitating and fulfilling our needs. His wife visited us and we had a very informative talk with her. The best part was their children, 2 boys and 2 girls. They were so lovable. What more does one need to feel at home!
Excellent rooms and location
Great location and view from the balcony of the Kerala House Homestay. Very relaxed and pleasant surroundings. Nicely clean rooms, best value for money. Only food is not available at the Kerala House Homestay itself. But you have plenty of restaurants in front of this Kerala House Homestay. The Kerala House Homestay is has a very great view at its backside and from the windows and you can really feel relaxed throughout the day if you simply stay inside this Kerala House Homestay for all day long.
Family managed homestay in prime location
Overall good experience. The homestay is in a very good location with proximity to both the cockleshell art centre which is about 10 min walking dist and the boating place whose entry gate is about 10 min away (mind you there are no Kerala House Homestay/homestay available after the entry gate). The host is quite knowledgeable and sane minded. The hostess was also very helpful she picked our bags when we arrived and departed. We had to ask her to keep them down out of embarrassment.
Cosy Stay at Thekkady
Right in the heart of Thekkady town, this homestay is one of the best budget accommodation I have ever stayed in Kerala. The rooms are nice and clean, the hosts are always eager to serve and they will happily guide you to local sightseeing options. The view of the Periyar Tiger Reserve from the balcony is wonderful. Don't expect 3 star facilities though, because this is just for stay and not for luxury.
Nice place for stay
It's a nice home stay, clean with all the basic amenities. Location is fairly good, near to the town and attached with wild life century. It is very near to the local restaurants so there is no problem of food options availability. Periyaar Tiger Reserve gate is just 200 meters away, so you can get everything you wish in this location. Overall it is a nice stay and very pocket friendly.
Value for money
Big rooms, non AC, minimalistic useful and well kept furniture. The caretaker Mr Shibu and his wife are very sober and hospitable, ever willing to help. The plus point is it's location on main road and some of nice eating options like Max Pizza French Bakery and others are just at walking distance. View of forest behind, from personal balconies is nice, so go for first floor rooms.
Place to relax
I chose the Kerala House Homestay after Reading many reviews regarding the Kerala House Homestay. It is quite serene place to relax with your partner. You can stay calm and happy. Cleanliness of the room is excellent. The only demerit regarding the honestly I felt was the path from the main road to the home stay, also there is no parking area. Overall I would give a rating of 4/5.
Good hotel in good budget
Good location Good Owners Good maintenance Near by to all places Balcony view is awesome? No parking place this is the only black mark in this white board This property owners are really good and kind hearted Very near to elephant safari Very very near to the busstop and Kerala House Homestays If they have in-house kitchen that will more helpful for tourists and visitors
Nice family homestay close to
I have stayed at this Kerala House Homestay already few times during my small groups Tours to Kerala. This is a convienent place for to start early morning boat safari in the lake. Hotel rooms are nice and clean, possible to use WiFi, possible to arrange breakfast. The owner family is hospitable and helpful with any question and can give the right advices.
Homely touch is the USP.
Homely touch, perfect location, clean room, excellent service. What more we need. Home away from home. The location is not so far from town but one can enjoy the beauty of Jungle sitting at Balcony. The minimum services, like morning tea, hot water were available. The ever smiling faces of the guest house personnel are the additive ones.
Value for money
It was really a value for money. Located near Periyar Lake and wildlife sanctuary. The owner was helpful and cleanliness of the holiday home was great. Though, photographs shown on MMT were tricky as these showed that the holiday home was in a forest area and a natural surroundings, however, we found it in main market.
Stay at hotel was good
No food in that Kerala House Homestay we have to arrange it from outside. That is is the only drawback.
Not too much good, but it is calm place to stay.
Room was clean and neat. Support from the faculty was great. Worth stay.
The view from the balcony is amazing
Would have preferred white bedsheets and more towels in the room. Luckily we always travel with spare sheets. It was difficult to figure out the hot water. That being said, the location is 2 mins walk from the park and the views are lovely. Do watch the sunset from your balcony.
Very good stay and well-maintained rooms
Hotel rooms are big and clean, well-maintained and also location is very good. I recommend to stay in this Kerala House Homestay. Thanks makemytrip. Hotel price offered by makemytrip is affordable. You will not get any food in this Kerala House Homestay but other Kerala House Homestays for food are very near.
Big room, nice balcony view, awesome location
We were given nice big room with balcony view. Room was very clean and well furnished. We were offered complimentary tea even when booking was for room only. It's just 5 min ride to periyar sanctuary. Host advised us to reach early in morning to take boat which was helpful. Would definitely recommend for family stay
Good homely stay
The owners were very friendly and helpful especially as I was travelling with my kids. They even arranged tickets for nearby shows of kalari and kathakkali. Though they don't have food services but there are good family restaurants just outside. So a great stay for us.
Rooms were clean and big, this home stay is close to periyar tiger reservoir, vegetarian restaurant is available near home stay, nature view from the rooms was really good, hot water was available 24x7hours.
Very nice hotel
All facilities were provided well and on time as well... Very co operative and humble. The stay was refreshing and people were helpful there... Location was good and near to market and thus made out trip complete...
A pleasant stay
Was a good and pleasant stay, the location of the Kerala House Homestay is good but food is not available at the Kerala House Homestay. The ambience and the service provided was good, the owner was very helpful, room was neat and clean.
Room is fine.. No lift, "no hot water in morning.. Helpful staff.. I only paid 743 using flight booking code as coupon so value for money.. Pizz max is just down stairs.. Hotel location is little far from main city.. Other Kerala House Homestays are definitely better than this one.
Nice & Spacious Rooms
Rooms are very nice & spacious particularly 5 & 6 with Balcony. Value for money. Rooms are within the market and very nearest Periyar Tiger Reserve. Parking is not available near by Hotel. Owner Mr. Shibu is very nice person and help for any guid if you require.
Excellent stay amidst nature and water bodies
Excellent location, good view of lake around, island property Very well maintained. Service and on call requests can be improved. Good birding options in morning. Crew invites you with a welcome drink in the entry pod. Boat service available to and from this island property.
Nice Location. On the way to lake side. Room was clean and comfortable for family. There is no parking facility, we want to park our vehicle in road only. Back side of the property is forest only. Some time we can able to see animals also. Best place for spent time.
Nice hotel with safety
Good Kerala House Homestay. Nice place. Well maintained. Worth for Rs. 800
Wonderful homestay next to the Tiger Reserve
The rooms were so big and clean. What a splendid view of the jungle from the balcony. Thanks to Mr. Shibu for upgrading to us from standard to deluxe. They were very hospitable hosts and got us discounts at the massage centers.
Wow will be the correct word for this place. Must stay for all travellers. The owner Mr. Shibu is a gem of a person. He and his family takes care of all the needs of the guests. The rooms are big plus the toilets are exceptionally clean. The location is great. Will suggest this to all
Very cosy place and close to the market
Very helpful hosts. Good service. The ambience and view from the room isn't very great if you are looking for luxury... But gives a homely feel. Can recommend it for good and small budget options. It is located in the market area.
Very close to Boat entrance with helpful owner
Location was very close to boat entrance. Room was very clean and owner family very helpful. Hot water available only morning time but they could arrange for our kids. Good restaurants nearby. Nice place to stay.
The rooms and people were great in excellence and hospitality. It was a peaceful and very Co operative stay with them. They were nice and helpful and provided every facility on time to time. I recommend it. :)
