They both know so much about the history,politics, and culture of India--our dinner conversations were not only fascinating but lots of fun--Johnny is a true storyteller --funny and charming. The house is spotless,architecturally and historically very interesting with big windows overlooking gardens of exotic fruit,spice and nut trees . We picked cashews... More

I had a wonderful stay at Ayanat House. I can only describe my experience in superlatives. From the beginning when I was first greeted by Johnny and Rani, I felt that I was staying with friends.

Ayanat House is the perfect end to a holiday in Kerala. It draws together in one place all the best about South India. It is located on the lake, part of the famous backwaters. It is set in the shade of palm trees with mahogany and teak close by. The Art-Deco house is spacious and offers comfort and personal service... More

Johnny and Rani have preserved the heritage of the old family homes of Kerala in a most authentic manner. Going back to Kerala after almost after almost 20 years, it brought back memories of childhood holidays. Their home is spacious and a perfect place to laze and unwind. The food is to die for. And Johhny and Rani are the... More

They make all efforts to accommodate your individual interests, which for us included a visit to the local school and a cooking lesson at their home... More

John and Rani are charming, the accommodations quiet, spacious and homey, the food delicious and the surrounding area beautiful--their home is right on the backwaters of Cochin.
