Maryann and Philip could not have been nicer or more helpful. Philip gave great advice on the rest of Kerala and directed me to other wonderful homestays. He says they visit the places they recommend once a year to make sure they are up to standard. Pretty amazing! The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean and the breakfasts delicious. Incredible...

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean. Like most homestays, make sure that you bring toiletries. Also water here, as none is provided. Bear in mind that you will be charged an extra 400 per day to use air conditioning. It is easy to hail a rickshaw into the town centre and is... More

Thank you for your kind words, wonder how you " missed out " the tissue rolls and soaps provided in the toilet. Yes AC is charged extra a small amount of Rs.400/- only, as your booking was for the base room only - via a site where it very clearly mentioned that AC facility comes at extra cost. Thanks once...

We stayed in the top floor family room, which had four single beds and was lovely. Very nice simple design, clean and comfortable. Hospitable informative owners. Located a short walk south of the centre in a quieter area. Very well priced compared to other options. Highly recommended.

I had reserved a single room, but I was disappointed as it was downstairs and facing the street. I was offered a double room for a little more and it has been a good choice as it was very quiet. My friends had the upper room, very wide, nicely furnished, balcony and terrace. The owners were very nice and helpful.... More
