눇This charming guesthouse is in a leafy village type setting away from grime and grit of (unattractive) Kumily township. The hosts live in a separate house on the same property and were fabulous hosts. They gave great, and we felt unbiased, recommendations for activities to do in the area. Rooms were neat and tidy, good value for money. Wifi was a bit shaky but that seems to be standard. Generator was on hand for power outages.

눉I want to tell about one event, that left us really disappointed about this guesthouse. At check out we found out that the owner didn't know herself how much money we were expected to pay her for rooms. So we had a look at our booking.com confirmation letter, but in was an incorrect one, for another guesthouse, which was more expensive than this place. So as a result we payed about 2000Rs more than we actually had to pay, and the owner took the money without saying a word about it. Of course, it is partly our own fault, but I think owners must know how much their rooms cost and provide their guests with a receipt or something, which hasn't been done. We left this area in the morning, and by the time we found out about our mistake it was too late to come back. The owners didn't try to contact us, though.
눇In general, there is a nice place to stay near Periyar national park. Location was a bit far from the center of Kumily, but one can get there easily by tuk-tuk or taxi, it only takes 5-10 minutes. Rooms are basic but clean, some of them have been renovated just before our visit. The owners are really friendly, and did everything to make our stay at their place pleasant. They served a breakfast in the morning, a bit expensive but tasty, and were ready to help when needed.
