During my previous visit to Cochin, I got to know about this service villa in Wayanad. I decided to take my family including parent for short break in the second visit to Kerala. This property located in the mountains and surrounded by amazing view, it was bit hazy during most of the day however it seems we were located almost at cliff when viewing from terrace of the property. When we explored property - rooms were neat, spacious and clean. Bathroom was also in good size considering each room has attached bathroom. This properly also has open areas for little kid to play. Food - This is the best part of the stay. We mostly had veg. food kerala style. Every time new vegetables/curry were served and it was very tasty. Make sure to have kerala rice along with food for extra taste. Non-Veg food was also good. Also Kitchen access was provided hence we could cook baby food. that was best part we don't get in Hotel. I suggest people to go for 3-4 days break. Just to eat, relax, enjoy the surrounding and ....Bird chirping and Singing.
