This place... We have fallen in love with.... Truly...:-)!!! Kudajadri Drizzle is a 150 plus years old home and with a lot of heritage in it. Even the family members have inherited the characteristics of care, warmth, hospitality from their forefathers I felt. From the moment we had booked the homestay till the time we checked out and reached back home, we were constantly pampered with care by Owner Vinoop and his family. We have a daughter 6 yrs and a son less than a year old. So, food could be a problem for him was a concern. But Aunt Shyamala's kitchen was always accessible for me to make porridge and milk was always available. Aunt always had a smile on her face and never sulked for our requests :-) Vinoop's wife was also the same. Wayanad was always on my wishlist since my college days. This was the first homestay visit of ours in April 2015, my husband picked this place after seeing the photographs and the many excellent reviews. For an emergency reason when we had to cancel the booking the first time, Vinoop never had any concerns and immediately said he will refund. Unlike other homestays which take 50% or more for a cancellation towards the booking day, Vinoop was exceptional in not being after money. This quality of his, made us postpone the booking. And when we were there, we took back all never fading memories and made us fall in love with the beauty of Wayanad and this beautiful homestay. This homestay is clean and well maintained. Hygiene is given importance. Food is awesome with all the Kerala delicacies served as Breakfast or Dinner. The family ensures that the food is served hot and only at the time we sit at the table. The way they serve the food and ask if we need more, and Ganesh Uncle mentioning "please feel free to ask, it is like your home", gives us a smile and a sense of satisfaction for our tummy and makes us feel like our home. Anoop comes in around and helps the guests in need. Wifi is there, but when the rooms are full, the bandwidth may not be handled. You wouldn't need wifi or tv though, since you are there to enjoy the nature and be away from all the polluted/noisy/stressful city life of yours. There are ample places to visit, Vinoop's travel brochure helps you in planning. Rather I would say, Vinoop plans your itinerary carefully and tells you. Because of the unconditional love and care we received the first time, we did make a second trip in the next 6 months in Nov 2015. We received the same attention, and we were never bored. This time we took time to sit back and relax at this homestay, playing in the courtyard, lying in the hammock, just sitting idle on the place beside the pillars. My daughter loves the swing, the hammock and the love birds. Places to visit in the order of our likes: Banasura Sagar Dam, Edakkal Caves, Thirunelly Temple, Thrisillery Temple, Kuruva Island, Tea Estate, Lakkidi View Point, Pookot Lake, Sulthan Bathery Jain Temple and many more. Thanks Vinoop, Ganesh Uncle and Family for making our visit a more memorable and a comforting one. Hats off to your hospitality. We feel more like family with you. Appreciate your patience and care :-) PS: A special mention about Ganesh Uncle, his warm welcome and again a warm send-off with an eclairs chocolate to all, and a memorable group foto, our heart gets heavy not wanting to leave the place!

We chose homestay over a hotel to be able to understand local culture and food. The owner's family lived in the premises and were very warm, kind and extremely courteous. Breakfast and dinner was part of the package. I had made online reservation and on our day of arrival, Vinoop phoned us at least 10 times to ensure we reach without any hassle. He also arranged a vehicle for pick up and to visit nearby tourist attractions. City dwellers must visit this place to just relax and come back rejuvenated. Rooms, towels, bathroom and bedsheets were clean. Pick your choice from heritage or newly built rooms. Would love to go again to meet the Kudajadri family.

Perfect home away from home

6.1/7
Posted 4 Nov, 2015

We stayed at Kudajadri Drizzle as part of trip to Wayanad (1N/2D) through a women travel group ( F5 Escapes). We arrived at Kalpetta Bus stand around 5 am. I gave a call to our assigned driver (Vijayan ) for the trip around 4.30 in the morning to give a heads-up on our time of arrival. Within a minute or two of our arrival, Vijayan had reached the bus stand. It's 15-25 min drive to Kudajadri Homestay. Since it was early in the morning, we din't get a chance to look around. As soon as we entered the homestay, Vinoop ( whom we had contacted before ) & his father were waiting for us. They helped us get the luggage to our respective rooms ( 2 rooms) & showed us around the room. Told us about the Free-WiFi , 24hrs Hot Water supply & provided us with water bottles & cup as well. The room was clean, calm & quiet. The room has few cupboards to keep clothes, plug ins to charge phone. A Portable fan as well. The weather in Wayanad was so pleasant, that we didn't actually want a fan. Once everyone woke up, sitting by the verandah & sipping coffee seemed like the best way to start a morning. The view from homestay was really great. They have a garden with beautiful picturesque flowers. They have 7 rooms currently & expanding as well. I got to personally meet Vinoop's family who are very friendly & kind people. Once we had morning nap, we realized there was no power (Only in our rooms). After informing Vinoop about this issue, he got an electrician quickly & got it resolved. They provided us with emergency lights ( Just in case!). Food was fresh & hot on all the days. For breakfast, we had idli, chutney, vada & kind of sambhar. We came back from our day out at Wayanad back to homestay at night for dinner & bonfire. The service is quick & the family members are very responsive & super-attentive. Take a early morning walk around the homestay & explore the place. It's different feeling walking through sound of your own footsteps (instead of vehicle's honking in the city), breath in the fresh air & enjoy a really scenic beauty. I was visiting Wayanad for the very first time & I am glad I got the experience the local culture & explored Wayanad through Kudajadri & Vijayan ! Would love to bring my family for a relaxed weekend.

Wonderful experience

6.1/7
Posted 7 Jan, 2014

We went for our honeymoon to Wayanad and stayed in Kudajadri Drizzle in Nov'13. Good weather to travel to Wayanad. Vinod picked us up with a very warm welcome. Had a romantic candle light dinner after reaching the place. Really nice & clean room & Best part is the Big and really clean bath room. Hot water was available any time of the day. Vinod and his family are very friendly esp. his dad. Aunty made delicious, authentic Kerala food. Uncle took care of our every need in the room. We lacked nothing. They were very non-interfering though it was completely a home-like environment. So we got exactly what we were looking for. The best place to stay for people who want to get away from the busy-ness to get refreshed and still have home-like setting in a simple budget. Fulfills the meaning of a Home-Stay! We stayed in, most of the time and enjoyed the food cooked by aunty. We walked in the garden after every meal to just relax. Went on speed boating, soochipara waterfalls, Mountain View point etc. Vinod arranged for a cab for a good price. The cab person was very kind and understanding did not complain for anything on the whole day's journey. Cooperate with us as to fit into our itenary. We went to Ooty in the same cab without any hassle. Next time we go to Wayanad, Kudajadri will be the place we will stay at, without any doubt!!! We are looking forward to it!!! Thanks Uncle, Aunty& Vinod - For giving us a wonderful experience. We strongly recommend this home-stay for everyone who reads this review.

Best homestay in Wayanad with a budget tariff

7.0/7
Posted 18 Mar, 2016

I can say that the place was wonderful. It's very hard to get a place like this. The place was very calm and I hope you can enjoy this place. Kudajadri Drizzle is not only a better place to stay but also it ensures very good hospitality that will surprise you. You can feel family atmosphere. Each and every member of home was very good. They are very accessible. You can talk freely. They are always willing to help you, for your sightseeing. Vinoop, that guy was nice and ready to guide you. Come guys enjoy the life. Forgot to say about Uncle and Auntie. They were superb, the food, their approach and everything was great.

Nice place to stay and good location

7.0/7
Posted 29 Apr, 2015

The hotel is conveniently located and near to bus stand and railways station. The staff are professional and hygienic. The surroundings of the hotel are good and the staff are quick to attend all the requests. The room is spacious, neat and well-maintained. The appearance of the hotel is good internally and externally. There is a view from the hotel room and all the amenities provided are working fine. They have provided non-vegetarian food with good quality and no delay in check-in and checkout process. There are no other activities provided but has some open space to play around. Site seeing can be arranged by our request but not personally by them. It is worth staying here and I would like to recommend this hotel for other travellers. I went with my family in last year November.
