It was a super-pleasant stay there. I have planned my trip to Kerala so that i can get some beautiful relaxing time and thats what i have got. What else you want when you are surrounded with full of greenery, in the middle of jungle surrounded by tall trees which you sneak around through your window, 2 min walk away you have Spice plantation. Infact we reached there in evening it was raining so it was a cherry on the cake moment.
Then on top of that mind-boggling delicious morning breakfast. We had "APPAM" and "VEGETABLE STEW" prepared by them. Ohhh Man !!! It was the beautiful gimpse of Kerala delecasies. As 1st time ever i had those dishes and they were mouth-watering and appetizing. Then, Manu the brillant host incredibly friendly and there welcoming make you feel at home and Suresh who works there was very helpful and lovely person. Moreover, Manu can help you out in exploring the area more, can help you out in making a plan and arrange whatever is required.
The rooms were clean, lovely and spacious with having a balcony and built at the perfect place from where you can have the splendid outside view. Hot water 24*7, Free WIFI, clean bathrooms, parking space, very cosy eating area, still do you think anything is left ? A BIG NO !! Infact, I would recommend you to take the room in the upper floor for the better view.
Lastly, one thing which i didn't like was the dinner, i have heard lot of good reviews for that tooo but mine experience was not blasting, it was fine. But all above things can igonore this any time.
So, if you want to plan for Munnar, give a shot to this place and i can assure you, you gonna fall in love with this Homestay. . .
Well Needed Retreat

A verdant little haven away from the main road surrounded by spice trees and tea plantations which you are free to explore. The dinner prepared (INR 200 for veggie) is top notch and generous portions as other reviewers mention and rightly so as there isn't anything nearby. We had a mishap with booking with Agoda whereby the property didn't get our booking but luckily Manu had spare rooms and even upgraded us. After travelling busy, noisy cities this was a welcome break of relaxing, eating and exploring the surroundings.

Clean rooms, a balcony and from the room you have a real tree house effect, it makes you feel on top of the world. They booked us a 5 hour hike to the top of the mountain, that was the best and my favorite. Everyone tries their best to make your stay as comfortable as possible, they won't hold back. Thank you very much for that! The food every morning and every evening is delicious and different every day. I still miss their food! Would recommend it to everybody!
The people make it.

As ever with homestay type accomodation it's really the people who work there that make or break it. At clouds land the two brothers Manu and Binu (and Suresh who works for them) are brilliant hosts, incredibly friendly and welcoming they make you feel at home. Binu showed me around the area one day by scooter and had the chance to meet some local tribesman and see wild elephants, an experience I'll never forget.
The rooms (I stayed in summer dew and main building) are simple, spacious and clean. The location is superb with stunning views only 2 minute walk away. The area around the main building is full of birds and other wildlife.
The food is great, as others have rightly noted.
If you get a bus get off at Munnar town and will be greeted by rickshaw drivers. They will probably charge 250 to take you to the door, you might be able to get lower for them to drop you at the end of the road, a nice short (bumpy) walk to the property, but don't do this if you have a suitcase on wheels.
Great complete package

We stayed one night in this lovely house. (Two in summerdew (same owners))
Location is near the tea plantages in the hills. Stayed at top floor where we had a nice view.
Rooms: Clean and modern room
The food: So lovely and affordable. Every day we were wondering which great dishes we got served that day. Every meal (breakfast and dinner) was different. At dinner we recieved multiple kind of curries. It was so tasteful. Amazing!
Location of dinner: In front of their home. Quite small but that makes it more cozy and easier to start a conversation with guest.
The staff: Is it possible you get that great staff elsewhere? They really are helpful at any time of the day. They arranged two activities for us and drivers to go to Munnar. If you needed something they don't hesitate to help you.
If you are looking for a great place around Munnar and want to do activities there, stay at this place. It is really a perfect place to stay! Ask them to arrange a hike for you, best experience!
