My family comprising of four members stayed here for a couple of days during May 2013. The location is blissfully quiet and lives up to its name of being ecofriendly. The rooms are spacious and clean. The entire property is well maintained. There is a small garden at the rear. Parking is not an issue here since there is ample space. We took only one room, but there are more rooms in the first floor.
The owner Suresh is extremely helpful and very informative. I was slightly concerned before landing at the place, but on arriving, all my fears went away. He served us and our guests tea without even asking for the same and did not charge us for the extra tea served. The breakfast was also sumptuous consisting of idli and vada.
He advised us to visit Kauthuka Park which is just 10 mins drive and we were indeed happy that we did not miss out on this place. The vision and determination of the owner is really appreciable and commendable. We were inspired by his vision and overall our visit to Kouthuka was really worth it, more so because of the explanation given by the owner.
Suresh also advised us to have dinner at Hotel Siddharth and the food was good and quite economically priced too. He also ensured that we had a local guide for our trip from Athirapally to Valparai who was quite dependable and knowledgeable.
We stayed on the ground floor and personally I would have preferred more light and ventilation. But the rooms on the first floor were bright and sunny. Even after we landed at Valparai, Suresh called us up to ensure that we had reached safely and also gave us tips on where to stay at Valparai. In short, Eco green is a good and safe place for a family stay and at Rs.2000/- per day with extra bed is quite affordable.
