The state of Kerala is famous for its Government-approved homestays. We stayed in several and all were unique. Some were on farms and historic plantations, others in comfortable homes although the bedrooms are usually quite plain. All are run by delightful, educated couples who spoke excellent English and love meeting new people. Ruby and Dr.Thomas Joseph went out of their... More

We didn't know what to expect when we signed up for a homestay, certainly didn't expect to find a home away from home. The Tabernacle Homestay is the lovely private home of Ruby and Dr. Thomas. The house and grounds are warm and welcoming and the atmosphere is relaxing and caring, with the river flowing gracefully alongside the garden. The... More

We also expected Ruby to be our hostess, but instead, her sisters, Lucy and Molly, and pastor Binou, were there. They were so helpful and friendly, accompanying us some of our field trips around Thodupuzha. They suggested we visit a rubber plantation which was so interesting.

When we first arrived at Tabernacle, we were disappointed to hear that Ruby, and her family were out of the country. However her two sisters Molly and Lucy together with Pastor Binou more than compensated for her absence. The warm and friendly atmosphere very quickly made everyone feel at home.
