    This warm, beautiful old house sits right outside the town of Kothamangalam and is on the way to Munnar from Cochin. It is also close to the famous Thattekad Bird Sanctuary. Nidra means rest or seep in Malayalam. Among close family and friends, our house has been popularly known as the ‘hibernation zone’: This place is the perfect escape from urban chaos offering lush green surroundings, peaceful silence and great food to wind down. You can look forward to a wholesome rural experience.
    Our home is situated within a 20-acre mixed plantation consisting of rubber, coconut, cocoa, nutmeg, pepper, coffee, teak trees, etc. You can laze around the house while you listen to birds and farm animals go about their daily business in the distance. You can also venture out around the property, discover the different things we grow here or even do some bird watching of your own. We are very happy to organize trail walks through the property and treks around the area. Being the foodies that we are, you can look forward to some delicious homemade local cuisine while you are here. We serve breakfast (complimentary), lunch and dinner. Whilst my mother cooks great authentic Kerala meals which is what we usually serve, you can request for other simple Indian dishes or an English breakfast, a salad, or some pasta if you’d prefer that. For our daily meals, we grow most of our vegetables here and our spices are either locally sourced or from within the property itself.
    o Within the village: Three peaks in locality from where you can catch a great sunrise. We organize guided treks to the top. The neighborhood is extremely safe for you to walk around. The sunset by the paddy fields offers a great view. o Bhoothathankettu dam and reserve forests (9kms away): the trail through the old forest and the boat ride on the Periyar river are worth exploring. If you are lucky, you might even spot a deer or elephant during your boat ride. o Bike rides and drives through the Thattekad route: Forests on both side, offers great scenic views and complete silence. o Guided trek inside the Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary (8 km away) o Thrikaryoor temple (9 km away): It is declared as one of the 11 holy temples in Kerala. Thrikkariyur is believed to be the capital of ancient Chera Kingdom and has a lot history associated with it . o Iringol kavu (22 km away) – Fifty acres of forest in the middle of a town and a beaming Durga temple surrounded by myth, belief and mystery. o Kodanadu Elephant farm (30 km away) : It is one of the largest elephant training centres in Kerala. It is flanked by the high ranges and is set near the southern banks of the Periyar River. We ll be happy to tell you more about these places .
  • Very nice place located in a small village! Judith and her family are caring and lovely! Her dad and her brother took time for us to show us around end explained us anything we wanted to know about farming or India in general! Her mum allowed us to watch her preparing some traditional dishes! Most of the ingredients where home grown! I can highly recommend this place to anyone looking for real cultural experiences outside all the tourist hot spots...

  • It is as good as the description. A wonderful place to do as much, or as little as you want. Did some great bird watching from the comfort of the terrace. Self catering is so easy, or there is a very helpful maid who will cook anything you want.

    Josie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • River Edge is a quiet, quaint villa style property with a decent sized pool, three bedrooms and a large living space which is common to guests (but we had all to ourselves) in addition to a den. We had a lovely room with the comfortable setting and a large sized bath with a sunken tub. Set amidst the serene banks of the Periyar river, river edge comes across as a labour of love, featuring all the modern amenities you will need for a quiet retreat in Thattekad. Tom and his team are among the most thoughtful hosts that we have had the pleasure of staying with. From guiding us to the property to providing us with all the kinds of food we wanted, they helped us organize it all! They also surprised us with a wonderful gesture when they found out that we were celebrating our anniversary. Thank you so much guys - we loved it! If you need quality accommodation in Thattekad this is the place to book. Tip: It is quite close to the Thattekad Bird Sanctuary (Salim Ali Trail) and an ideal base if you are interested in bird watching but want more luxurious accommodation.

    Bhavesh2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent stay in Thattekad, close to the bird sanctuary and the flowing river and amidst rubber plantations. The property is enormous and the house tastefully built, minimalistic but elegantly furnished and staff to take care of all of our needs. Tom was very responsive throughout and helped answer all our questions timely. We were very warmly greeted by Jijo, Tom's relative and caretaker of the property who is also an expert birder and acted as our guide for our birding outing next morning. We really appreciated Jijo's company throughout - his birding knowledge is on-point and he was able to guide us to a couple local eateries that served very reasonable and delicious local food. Since there were no additional guests in the house at the time, we had the whole place to ourselves. The room is very comfortable and elegant. There is little to no cellular network in the area - just something to be aware of but a good excuse to disconnect from society and enjoy a relaxing getaway. Wifi is available but can be spotty. The kitchen is reasonably well equipped and we appreciated the ability to cook simple breakfast (eggs and toast) and brew our own tea/coffee. Overall, this is a wonderful stay, worth every penny.

  • Judit is a wonderful host. She is attentive, thoughtful, and has great suggestions for things to do around the area. Her and her family are incredibly warm and welcoming as they provide an authentic, unique adventures. We went for long walks around Kothamangalam/Nadukani, where you are immersed in a lush, tropical countryside. It's a good way to ease yourself into visiting India if you haven't been before, where cities can be a bit overwhelming. Judit also provides tours on request and we enjoyed learning about local history and agriculture. Food was absolutely delicious. Everything is fresh, homemade, and you are treated to a variety of local cuisines. The home itself is clean, comfortable, and spacious. We had the drawing room all to ourselves for a large chunk of the time spent there. Overall, highly recommended.

    Sandra2019-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to feel like at home while still on holiday! The hospitality was great and the natural surroundings of the property could give you a good sense of living the nature.

    Katerina2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A warm experience from the start, Judith and her family went out of their way to make us feel at home. They provided us with a unique experience, close to nature yet comfortable. The food was delicious, cooked with organically home grown ingredients and made thoughtfully with our preferences in mind. Highlight of the trip - being canoed to their river side property for a swim, and a sunset dinner with freshly caught fish. Highly recommended!

    Srinivas2019-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • The place is so serene, calm and amazingly beautiful. If you are a nature enthusiast you are going to love this place. Judith is a wonderful host and a beautiful family that takes you in with complete warmth and affection. The food made was thoughtfully cooked from home and reminded us that what families can be even while on travel and the warmth shown was exceedingly contagious that we didn't want to leave. Amazing property and incredible hospitality would highly recommend this place and will definitely visit again.

    Sebastin2019-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with this lovely family was very special. The location was breathtaking. We did some of the activities and found them to be very worthwhile. Being here was exactly what we were looking for: being immersed in beautiful nature, unspoiled by mass toruism, sourrounded by people that cared about their land.

    Julian2019-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is the place to go to if you want peace and quiet in the middle of the garden of Eden. It is close to a beautiful bird sanctuary and river. The food was home grown and outstanding. The family are so warm and welcoming. The house and gardens are charming. Highly recommended!

    Franka2018-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Judit, Janette & Joel's family home is a beautiful place, very well maintained and nestles in a quiet part of the surrounding plantations. Its nestled in a place where one can have long walks listening to the birds, or climb a hill behind or choose to do nothing. They are energetic and wonderful hosts who balance out privacy or to indulge in interesting conversations. Its an hour's drive from Cochin Airport and is fifteen minutes away from Thattekad bird sanctuary, making it an ideal stay for birders.

    Thattekad, Kerala, India

    A room in a farm house within a 3 acre farm with over 200 varieties of tropical fruit trees, larval host and fodder plants for Butterflies and important medicinal plants on the banks of the Periyar reservoir and bordered by the Cheramala forest, 2.5 Kilometers from the Thattekkad Bird Sanctuary.
    With a dream for Native air, Sound sleep and Sweet recreation, my family had determined to create a few acres of land that would provide our guests a never before experience. We started with the planting of tropical fruit trees in the plot, adding few larval host and fodder plants for butterflies and incorporating important medicinal plants and few rare and endangered plants to the garden as we like to call it. The scenario has now changed, many species of birds and butterflies stick to the plot. This together with the rare and rich aquatic flora and fauna of the reservoir area surrounded by the Screw Pines makes the land unforgettable for anyone who steps in. Now about an acre of the land is in fact a little paradise! To add to the charm, rabbits, and chicks, roam freely on the land while ducks, flying ducks and various types of native fish swim in the large pond in the campus. One can walk among them feeding or can cycle through the track around the pond early in the morning with a view of rose pink sea of water lilies. For the dare devils, you can embark on a trekk through the Cheramala forest. Go through the wicket gate to the trekking path the Cheramala hills meaning ‘ Chera Hills’ which is believed to be the capital of the Chera Dynasty and has been accredited with the potential for exploration. We have set hammocks aside the main water body and benches for relaxed times. Relaxing corners are also set around some shady trees where sunlight finds it difficult to peep through. One half of the campus is under development in which at present we have areca nut plantation intermixed with Plantains under organic cultivation. We intend to make up this part of the farm land with newly arriving fruit trees.
    Cheramala is beleived to be the location of the summer palace of the erstwhile Chera Kings. The remains of the ruined steps of the palace, boundaries etc. can be found on the hill top. The steps were made of dressed single stones which are now dislocated goes down to the Arattu kadavu (bathing ghat) at the banks of the Periyar river where the royalty used to bathe. Thattekkad (literally meaning flat forest) is an evergreen low-land forest located between the branches of Periyar River, the longest river in Kerala. The Thattekkad Bird Sanctuary, covering an area of barely 25 Sq.km. is the first bird sanctuary in Kerala. Dr. Salim Ali, the world renowned ornithologist has described this sanctuary as the richest bird habitat on peninsular India. Several species of birds, both forest birds as well as the water birds can be spotted here. The sanctuary is a habitat for many varieties of cuckoos and a region of the sanctuary popularly called 'Cuckoo Paradise'.

    Thattekad, Kerala, India

    A 150 year old traditional Keralian wooden house with 2 bedrooms within a 3 acre farm with over 200 varieties of tropical fruit trees, larval host and fodder plants for Butterflies and important medicinal plants on the banks of the Periyar reservoir and bordered by the Cheramala forest, 2.5 Kilometers from the Thattekkad Bird Sanctuary.
    With a dream for Native air, Sound sleep and Sweet recreation, my family had determined to create a few acres of land that would provide our guests a never before experience. We started with the planting of tropical fruit trees in the plot, adding few larval host and fodder plants for butterflies and incorporating important medicinal plants and few rare and endangered plants to the garden as we like to call it. The scenario has now changed, many species of birds and butterflies stick to the plot. This together with the rare and rich aquatic flora and fauna of the reservoir area surrounded by the Screw Pines makes the land unforgettable for anyone who steps in. Now about an acre of the land is in fact a little paradise! To add to the charm, rabbits, and chicks, roam freely on the land while ducks, flying ducks and various types of native fish swim in the large pond in the campus. One can walk among them feeding or can cycle through the track around the pond early in the morning with a view of rose pink sea of water lilies. For the dare devils, you can embark on a trekk through the Cheramala forest. Go through the wicket gate to the trekking path the Cheramala hills meaning ‘ Chera Hills’ which is believed to be the capital of the Chera Dynasty and has been accredited with the potential for exploration. We have set hammocks aside the main water body and benches for relaxed times. Relaxing corners are also set around some shady trees where sunlight finds it difficult to peep through. One half of the campus is under development in which at present we have areca nut plantation intermixed with Plantains under organic cultivation. We intend to make up this part of the farm land with newly arriving fruit trees.
    Cheramala is beleived to be the location of the summer palace of the erstwhile Chera Kings. The remains of the ruined steps of the palace, boundaries etc. can be found on the hill top. The steps were made of dressed single stones which are now dislocated goes down to the Arattu kadavu (bathing ghat) at the banks of the Periyar river where the royalty used to bathe. Thattekkad (literally meaning flat forest) is an evergreen low-land forest located between the branches of Periyar River, the longest river in Kerala. The Thattekkad Bird Sanctuary, covering an area of barely 25 Sq.km. is the first bird sanctuary in Kerala. Dr. Salim Ali, the world renowned ornithologist has described this sanctuary as the richest bird habitat on peninsular India. Several species of birds, both forest birds as well as the water birds can be spotted here. The sanctuary is a habitat for many varieties of cuckoos and a region of the sanctuary popularly called 'Cuckoo Paradise'.

  • We decided to stay at Judit’s place to break the journey from Kochi to Munnar. It was a great choice. The room was basic yet had ac and also a hot shower which was great. Dinner was a feast. We drove our tuktuk nearby to picturesque rice fields and met friendly local families. Judit was always nearby if we needed anything. Would definitely recommend.

  • The stay at judit home was a special wonderful experience. The property is located in the middle of nature and yet close to the nearest town. Judit was always very helpful in organizing day trips. If you are looking for pure relaxation in nature, this is the place for you. The father of judit has a very good knowledge of agriculture and the mother is a great cook. The kerala cuisine was unique. There is a very friendly atmosphere in the house

    Kurt2019-01-10T00:00:00Z

You can visit and walk in scenic hills and byways, and get help arranging your days. You can meet a kind family and learn about the culture by living in it. I recommend you stay there.

  • A true example of an excellent hospitality!! I and my husband had come to river edge with my parents and there is nothing more that we could have expected from the owner. Tom responded to every request very quickly and arranged everything we asked for. Also Manu made sure we faced no issues during our stay. Manu and Tom also arranged for barbecue on a very small notice. The property is amid bird sanctuary so the drive was a bit long, but it was worth the drive.
