Avoid this place if you have any feeling for kharma, bad kharma here although it looks okay. The room we booked was not available, the owner tried to blame us and told that it was because we sent him an email. He didn't want to cancel our booking on booking.com because this gives him bad reputation, while he actually should cancel if he doesn't has the booked room available. Also, he wanted to give us a room for more than double the price as we booked, he didn't want to admit he made a mistake and didn't want to negotiate on the price. Very very bad experience.

We stayed in this place for a night. Since we could not inform them early, we arranged for our food from outside only. However, a walk into the jungle with Ramachandran was an awesome experience, where we could see different birds and animals. We love to go back to this place again...

If you are in Kumily, you want to have a jungle experience, and then Junge View Homestay is definitely the best choice. It is the last house of the village, so out of the centre; but you don't want to be in the centre, because the centre is a bit boring, and you want to experience the forest and the monkeys. Sathish and his team are unbelievably enthusiastic, cooking, driving you around if there are no other ways of transport (in our case there was a public transport strike), arranging all forest tours, etc. It it not the cleanest place on earth, but it is clean enough. The ground floor rooms have hot water but no hot showers; so some mornings I found myself throwing buckets of hot water on myself, but that added to the charm of the place - and if you really want a hot shower, take a room upstairs. All rooms have a balcony, but you share them with other people; but there is space enough for privacy. Even when it was pouring with rain for 34 (!) hours, Sathish stayed immensely positive and helpful and gave us tea, beer and great food constantly - make sure you have a huge Victorian novel with you that you will never read in your own country because of constant e-mail stress, etc. All in all, a superb, great and very charming place! Oh, and Sathish also recommended me Sajhome Stay in Cochin, which turned out the be the best place in Cochin to stay. Have fun at Jungle View!

Possibly our favourite place we stayed on our 2-week trip to Kerala and also the cheapest. Rooms are basic but spacious, and being 2 adults and 2 kids (8 and 11) and having booked early for 4 nights, we got the large top-floor room. Definitely try and get this if you can. It wasn't the cleanest place we stayed, but good for Indian standards, and the beds were clean and comfortable. Sathish, whose English is good, was on hand most of time and always so helpful. Extended family members Elyngo and Paramishbuy are around all the time and are lovely. Their English is not great, but they will do anything for you. Make sure you get Sathish's number on Whatsapp at the start of your stay. He even became our driver for the next part of our trip to Munnar. Breakfast was generous and always something different each day. Bring your binoculars the jungle / forest next door is what makes Jungle View so special. Families of monkeys visit daily, and we saw a hornbill, giant Malabar Squirrel and Nilgiri Langurs too. For Periyar national park we couldn't do the rafting trip we'd planned as kids needed to be over 12 and we didn't fancy the 100 or so people on the bigger boats. Instead we got a Tuk Tuk to the park entrance, then Sathish showed us where to hire bikes. Once inside the entrance go up the hill to your left to a small building. They cost something crazy cheap like 30 rupees per hour (40p), but only adult bikes are available. We'd also been told that in the dry season the animals come to the lake to feed about 3 or 4pm after the hot midday sun, which turned out to be correct, so an afternoon trip may be best. We had one evening meal of chicken curry and vegetable curry which was great (and the cheapest meal of our trip), but as we were there for a good few days we wanted to try different places. We had children so we were out and about on trips most of the time, but this would be a great place to chill just as a couple and you can watch the wildlife from your balcony. There was also one of those hanging baskets that you can sit in outside on our terrace, which was really comfortable. If you are visiting with kids, though, the monkeys should be a real hit. Remember your binoculars!
