Reviewed 7 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This homestay was a very pleasant stay made even better by santhosh and his family who welcomed us with open arms.
He had great knowledge of the area and booked us our canoeing trip through the backwaters which was a day to remember. He uses a tuk tuk driver who was amazing and drove us wherever we needed to be with pin point timing.
Would highly recommend.

It was a great pleasure hosting Dan Holand and his friend. They are nice people, excellent and highly recommended. They left the room spotless and was a pleasure to have around the house. Very welcome back anytime.

“The Place to go if you want to feel Special and Welcome”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

From arrival to departure (5 days) I felt like both an honoured guest and part of the family. Santosh, Sheena and Goku looked after me as they would their own mother. They doctored my cough, made sure the tuk-tuk driver was personally known to them, translated my wishes, gave me great food, escorted me to a local restaurant and met me afterwards as it was late and I was alone and they did not want me to get lost. They filled my days with wonderful suggestions about where to go and any spare moments with friendly and informative chats about their interesting country.

Liked best: The whole family made you feel both an honoured guest and part of the family at the same time.
Liked least: litter but that was common to everwhere I visited in India.

We stayed here for two nights.It is situated a couple of minutes from the train station up a back laneway which is sometimes hard for tuk tuk drivers to find.Apart from that the family are extremely welcoming.Breakfast was very tasty and a lot of well prepared food.I spent a rew hours one afternoon with Sheeda learning how to cook a traditional Kerala fish curry which we had later on that evening.Altogether a pleasant stay.
