Our three night stay with Joseph and Cicely at their wonderful home was a highlight of our trip around Kerala. They are such lovely people and great hosts - we were so pleased we chose to stay with them. The home stay is right on the edge of one of the backwaters so we were happy to spend some time...

We didn't really plan much before embarking for India, one of our daughters said we must go, best place in the world, absolutely fantastic. So we went, the shock of getting out of the airport and into the city was shattering, so many people, so much chaos, so alive....it's like nowhere else we've ever been. Anyway, Poopally's, Joseph and Cecilla,...

We stayed 2 nights and received a very warm welcome from the moment we arrived. Joseph clearly loves to have guests and wants you to enjoy his beautiful home and location.

We arrived at Pooppallys and were warmly greeted by Joseph and Cicely. Joseph, who is 86 years young, has lived here all his life and in fact, the place was built by his Grandfather back in 1895 (I believe). Joseph and Cicely are very caring hosts, and looked after our every need throughout our 6 day stay. Joseph arranged auto-rickshaws...

We have just spent time with Joseph and Cicily at Pooppallys. We can't speak highly enough of the hospitality of both hosts. Joseph arranged a three hour ( it could have been longer had we wished) boat trip of the back water canals. This was very enjoyable. We were tossing up between this and a houseboat, we are glad we...

Unfortunately we were only able to stay at Pooppallys for one night but what a great experience it was! It is located on the backwaters so you are able to see the traffic. The food was just exceptional--the best we had in our week stay in Kerela. Joseph is a very interesting man who can answer any question you might...

We spent two nights here as part of a two week trip to India with driver organised by Indian company Icon Tours (highly recommended). We could have stayed here much longer. The environment is stunning with views right across the backwater canal. The owners were extremely attentive and interesting to talk to about the social history of Kerala. The food...
