Ruby really believes on the concept of "home-stay" and treats you like a family member, it is impressive how focus they are on hospitality. The house is at an excelent location, at river... More

The welcome in this lovely situated homestay is overwhelming! Ruby does everything to feel you at home and more. It's hard not to gain weight because of the excellent meals presented at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The couple also arranges several very nice activities around their location, of which the mountain drive is definately a top choice!

We had a wonderful 2 night stay with Thomas and Ruby. Our ground floor room was spacious and comfortable (lovely bed) with good shower facilities. Their riverside home is beautiful and it was a pleasure to share it with them for a short time. The price you pay really is all inclusive, everything is included in your stay- sightseeing trips,...

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
