Reviewed 26 March 2008

We have recently returned from a fabulous two weeks in Kerala, under the care of our host Motty. Spending 12 nights at Marari Beach Homes (which he part owns) and 2 nights at his home in Alleppy. He and his wife Lali (a wonderful cook) are so welcoming, and nothing is too much trouble to organise trips etc. The house is situated in the centre of this charming town, which definately hasn't been hit yet by the big tourist trade. Motty is a collector, and takes great pride in his home and possessions.

Our room was lovely, with this huge Indian bed, which you had to take a running leap at to get in !!!! steps provided really.

Don't expect TVs, trouser presses or jacuzzi, just good old fashioned Indian hospitality with a couple who really do enjoy having you in their home.
