Mundackal Plantation Homestay
Mundackal Plantation Homestay, Kothamangalam, India
This welcoming homestay is set in a 104 acre rubber estate surrounded by a cluster of pepper and coconut plantations, though it is little more than an hour's drive from Cochin.
The hosts Jose and Daisy are very friendly and Daisy's fantastic cooking is a definite highlight of the stay - she can also provide cookery demonstrations if you wish. The landscaped gardens around the house are great for bird watching early in the morning.
This is a great base from which to visit Thattekad Bird Sanctuary, just 12km away.
