A wonderful overnight stay, we just wish we could stay longer. A very warm welcome with comfortable surrounding. We had wonderful experience. It is so beautiful, calm & homely . It is rightly said home away from home. I personal appreciate the hospitality of Mr. Joseph. Thanks for everything. Sasmita from Delhi.

The host is very welcoming. Place is neat and is located close to the town, but in a pleasant area. Host can provide guidance for some activities - boating, trekking etc. Food was not available during our stay in Jan 2015, if the owners can arrange for food/refreshments, it will be a very comfortable and relaxing stay. Also, some good...

Clean, cosy rooms with good hot shower in a peaceful location, yet within walking distance to any place in Kumily. The couple running the homestay is incredibly helpful and friendly. I stayed for 4 nights and would have loved to stay longer.
