A wonderful experience. Extremely cozy and probably the best possible location. Restaurants were nearby for meals. The caretaker was keen to help out (that one of us knew the local language helped). Overall I would say that although nothing extravagant but all amenities required were available and the location is what makes this place a perfect fit for Wayanad.

Situated close to Lakkidi viewpoint, Mr. Ranji's homestay is very comfortable. Mr. Ranji does not stay in that area. His residence is elsewhere. There is a caretaker (Mr. Balan) who is ever smiling. Although language barriers made it hard to communicate with him, it was not a major issue. The front of the house has sufficient space and there is a forest area close by. There is a fully equipped kitchen. The house is ~1km from a departmental store/super market. The closest vegetarian hotel (that was open) is ~4km from the homestay. Overall a pleasant weather made the stay even better. Coming to the negatives. 1. For vegetarians like me the closest restaurant is not at a walkable distance. 2. While leaving the homestay and handing over the keys to the caretaker, he suggested that we clean the kitchen (which had perhaps a couple of utensils that had been used). Why pay 3k/- per day and clean the house as well? What was the service charge for? While I understand that our room was not cleaned, as we had locked it while going out to visit places, expecting us to clean the kitchen seemed a bit surprising.

It was a good overall experience. The homestay is nicely located on the outers with no disturbance and perfect scenic view. The host was also very friendly and cooperative.

Great Neighbourhood , just off the main road, very close to restaurants and churram view points . Took several tries to reach out to the Owner as we were coming from very far. Caretaker can only speak local language so it was very difficult to communicate with him. The Place is great and the house was very clean and as described. Hot water as a problem and guests have to check in advance .
