We stayed for three nights at this beautiful, enormous home. It had more than enough space to house our three generations (5adults and 2kids). From the moment we arrived we knew we'd love it. Prasad and his sister who own the property are lovely. Jithesh (the friendly and amazingly helpful manager/housekeeper) could not have done more to make our stay great.
There are many small touches to the house which surprised and impressed us: the toiletries and fluffy towels provided were like an expensive hotel; the plants in the bathrooms were a lovely touch; as were the books in the living area. The children especially loved the swings and slide n the large garden.
The beach in front of the house is clean and quiet, we swam with dolphins on two of the three days we were there!
Jithesh was amazing, he shopped for us, ordered and collected takeaway for us, even helped us with a late beer run! He organised for ayurverdic massages and even took us to a local festival which was very non touristy and a lot of crazy fun.
I would definitely recommend the jack fruit tree as a place to relax, swim and get some quality family time. We'd love to visit again.
We stayed for two nights at The Jackfruit and had a lovely, relaxing stay. There is a private beach which only gets used by locals. There is a manager and gardener who, unfortunately, we were not told would be there until the early evening but the manager's mother did cook us a wonderful south Indian breakfast.
Cannot recommend this property enough! It was the highlight of our trip to Kerala. Close to kozikode city, 20 mins in a taxi. Jithesh the caretaker was so so friendly. Helped us organise a yoga teacher for every morning, arranged Ayurvedic massagers to come to the property, a chef for us and provides us with traditional breakfast every morning! We even got to drink fresh coconut water from the trees on the property. The beach is private and beautiful, and the sea stunning. It's nice to take some time to cook, and if you wanted there was fishermen to buy fish from. There is a hammock to relax on, and a chair swing perfect for reading. We truly loved our stay, of course wish we had stayed longer!! It was paradise and we will definitely be back! Tip. Race up to the room at the top as it's the best if you can!
The location is 100/100 who love to stay in a beach ,very next to Beach every room had beach view and u can hear always humming sound of waves the sea view during evening evening and morning is the special moment .

Over all very memorable stay and would perfer to come back again sometime for a complete IT intoxication

We went there with Croatian who had never been to Kerala before. Given this the jackfruit tree was the best place to be. Excellent location, great hospitality and mesmerizing sea. Its a pity we couldn't meet the hosts aparna and Prasad. Hopefully next time! Thank you guys.
