Editor's Review

The Vanilla County homestay in Vagamon is in a peaceful location. You get to taste some really good flavours of Kerala in the food they serve. But this is a really old bungalow. So you cannot expect any sort of luxury at the homestay. The stay will still be comfortable enough. It is a basic homestay where you receive good hospitality but not top-class services.


  • Peaceful atmosphere and pleasant views.
  • Owner couple is quite hospitable.
  • The food has great Kerala flavours.
  • Comfortable rooms and great nature walks.


  • The property is old with basic furnishings.
  • The mattresses may be a little uncomfortable.
  • The room tariff is slightly on the higher side.
  • Not lavish or luxurious.
