Editor's Review

The Estate Residency is a good homestay ideal for budget travellers. It has nice green surroundings to walk around. The rooms provide a nice view from the large windows. But they are quite small and somewhat basic. There no good restaurants nearby but you can expect delicious homely food at the homestay itself. Since it is far away from the Muunar town, the place is peaceful and has no much crowd or pollution.

Detailed Info

Located about 7 km away from the Munnar Town just beside the NH-49, the Estate Residency is an ideal budget homestay having a serene atmosphere in a natural setting. All around the homestay are cardamom plantations along with vanilla, cocoa, coffee and pepper cultivation. The mountain-side homestay, built with Victorian architecture, is situated on a slightly elevated terrain and thus it overlooks the lush green tea gardens, the Sahyadri Mountain ranges and even a lake and a dam that are a little far away.

The homestay is hosted by Mr. Philip and his family. His wife loves gardening and cooking and they will be happy to share with their guests interesting details of cardamom and other crop cultivation. The homestay features three well-furnished individual deluxe rooms. They have large windows overlooking the verdant hills around. Apart from this, there are two tree houses also. Guests can enjoy a walk through the woods or they could sip their coffee while enjoying the panoramic view from the terrace.
