'Ente veedu' is the Malayalam word for 'my house'. 'Athithi Devo Bhava' is a saying in Sanskrit, the ancient Indian language, which means 'guests are equivalent to gods'. The hosts at Ente Veedu have really imbibed this saying and have opened their house to travelers from far and wide, extending them a hearty and warm welcome. This homestay is situated in an exotic locale in Wayanad - one of the hill stations in Kerala.
The rooms offer stunning views of extensive paddy fields and spice plantations. There are a variety of rooms to choose from - each of which are named after the various elements of nature.
Aakash (Ether): An air-conditioned double room on the first floor offers a huge private balcony facing the coffee plantations, as well as a common balcony opening up to the paddy fields, in addition to an attached dressing room and tub-equipped bathroom.
Thejas (Fire): A double room on the first floor offers a split-level common balcony opening up to the boundless paddy fields, in addition to an attached dressing room and bathroom.
Soorya (Sun): An air-conditioned double room on the first floor offers a huge private balcony facing the coffee plantations, as well as a common balcony opening up to the paddy fields, in addition to an attached dressing room and tub-equipped bathroom.

Ente Veedu gives a first hand experience of Malabar cuisine and hospitality. Traditional Kerala cuisine is served as per order and only farm fresh and organic products are used for cooking. While breakfast includes both Kerala and continental options, meals however, are traditional Kerala cuisine. The guests here can't stop raving about the kadala (vegetable) and puttu (rice cakes) made by Mrs. Seetha. She often serves breakfast herself, and it is her personal touch that makes this homestay special. There is also a small kitchenette if one is in the mood for a holiday cooking.
One can have a first hand experience of the various crops grown in Wayanad through the nature walk where various crops like vanilla, pepper, coffee, cardamom and paddy are grown. A short trip to Wayanad’s tribal heartland can be taken to see tribal life. Swimming, fishing and rowing a raft in a natural pond is just a stone’s throw away.
Take in a long walk around the spice plantation area, and couple it with a traditional ayurvedic massage to relax and rejuvenate the mind and body, and indulge in a total holistic healing. A spacious and well lit badminton court can be used whenever the body yearns for some physical activity.
Surrounded by coffee and pepper plantations and paddy fields, Ente Veedu really transcends you to an ethereal world and gives a holistic experience. Located in an 80 year old estate, Ente Veedu presents the legacy of Wayanad’s farming culture. It was Mrs. Seetha’s dream to be in the mainstay of tourism and related activities. Well supported by her husband Mr. Raju, her dream was realized in the year 2005, when they set up Ente Veedu for tourists who are really interested in exploring nature.
