The SpaceKodeeri Nature Home is a home-stay, where the guests share two bed rooms with the host, an old couple. The house is 350 years old built in the traditional Kerala style which permits maximum air circulation. We have two non a/c rooms with two beds and attached bath with running water, shower and western type toilets. Guest AccessWe have planted/protected more than about 150 species of medicinal herbs/trees in addition to endemic trees that provide green manure, timber, firewood and fruits. We have also protected a Sacred (Natural) grove which is a breeding ground for all the endemic flora & fauna.
Thanks to the thick and diverse natural vegetation, both the number and species of bird life of the estate has increased many fold. We have identified more than 40 species of endemic species of birds and more than 15 varieties of butterflies. The water logged rice field at the edge of the farmland attract migratory birds as well.
We have two well ventilated non A/C double rooms which can accommodate a maximum number of 4 guests at a time. There is a common living room and open verandah for the use of guests. Services such as internet, phone and laundry are available for additional cost.
There is also a tree house at the edge of the paddy field where one can blissfully enjoy solitude among swaying palm and mango trees, and relax watching birds and butterflies, read, write and/or meditate.
Food is vegetarian, mostly based on products grown organically, and cooked in traditional Kerala Style. We have no room service. We usually encourage visitors to eat with the family. Sometimes guests eat their lunch on the tree hose
Almost all guests, without any inhibitions, have joined Uma in the kitchen and shared culinary talents. On the dining table, a short lecture on healthy food comes naturally from Uma. Some Ayurvedic formulations which she makes from herbs grown in our farm have worked wonders on them. Interaction with Guestsfor Indians, the guest is not a 'client' but 'God'.
