Once the summer capital of the British in South India, Munnar is a breathtakingly beautiful hill station nestled in Idukki district of Kerala. Munnar got its name from its location at the convergence of three rivers – Muthirapuzha, Nallathanni, and Kundala. Moonu means ‘three’ and Aru means ‘river’. Unending expanse of tea plantations, pristine valleys & mountains, exotic species of flora & fauna in its forests and the aroma of spices all over makes it the kind of place you never want to leave. Munnar is also home to the astounding Neelakurinji flower which blooms once in twelve years and attracts lakhs of tourists from all over the world.
Positioned strategically on the top of a mountain, the homestay is a nest-in-the-woods kind of experience, ideal for those who want to escape their busy lives and live amidst nature. It has three double bedrooms with attached bathrooms along with a dining hall and an in-house kitchen. Located just 7 km from the heart of Munnar, it retains the charm and tranquility of rustic living. It overlooks pristine valleys and mountains that are home to exotic species of flora and fauna and are ideal for bird watching. Being located in a no-pollution area it gives you a tremendous and breath-taking view of greenery from its premises. There is a climb of 50 feet to reach the homestay from the parking spot.
You will be hosted by Khaja Mohaideen and Khadija. The duo visited Munnar the first time as a tourist in 2009 from Chennai and they fell in love with the place’s beauty and peaceful atmosphere. That trip kept them coming back several times to escape their busy city life. After few more visits, they decided to buy themselves this European-style home so that others can also experience the same magic. They are a warm, kind and loving couple and can help you with any information you need at any time.
