Thusharam - [ Dew drops ]

Thushaaram is a homestay style holiday home located in Kuttikkanam in Idukki district of Kerala, India. It is a family owned vacation cottage, built in the middle of a plantation property spread across about 1 acre of land.  It is located about 3 kilometres from Kuttikkanam. The only attraction when the family purchased the land was the nice landscape of the property with a small river in the boundary and the cool and calm climate of western Ghats .
Almost twenty years back a small rock home was constructed with two bed rooms , living area , a small kitchen and a small dining . The home served as a summer getaway for the family members .
The land and the cottage remained unoccupied for most part of the season and when someone reaches there to spend the vacation , the property will be filled with  forest and the preparation of the home itself will take the whole vacation .
So the suggested plan  was to do a  full revamp of the property and keep the place engaged with visitors so that the place will be live and active throughout the year .
You may be aware that  maintaining a summer home for an occasional  family get-together or a casual visit of one or two days per year will be a costly affair for most of us for more details click here
