I had a wonderful , comfortable and memorable stay at Oriole Homestay.I Must say- This is the place which runs on the true spirit of Airbnb.  It was like home away from home for me. It felt like I knew Sunila Ma'am and her family a long time before .We had talked about culture, food and traditions. Sunila Ma'am served me delicious breakfast - Appam with Kadla curry and even she and her family offered me delicious dinner - Rice -curry. It's an inexplicable experience to put into words. Girish Sir arranged a jeep safari for me and even drove me off to the Periyar Tourism Bus stop in his car. The love and oneness SunilaGirish family has showered on me is lifetime memory. If I talk about room- its superb with all essentials, airy, spacious and peaceful. I would love to come back to Kumily and stay with you all.May God bless all of you. Loads of love and wishes: )

I loved staying at this accomodation. When I was there, there was just Girish and not his wife but he took so much care about me. He used to work in the National Parc as a ranger, thus he is able to organize some good tours for you :) The room was clean, the bathroom too and everything was working. In the morning he has offered us a breakfast for free! :) The bus station is walkable, even though most people prefer taking the tuck tuck for 40Rupies.
