As soon as you reach Vembanad Lake villas, you are transported to tranquility and beauty. The property is complete with trees, a water canel running through and around the entire property, an amazing lounging spot right next to the lake and birds and ducks. The hosts are very loving and welcoming and we felt like a part of their family.... More

This is the place to stay!! Food is excellent, family are abuzz with helping any way they can. Gave us a tour of their garden, fruit, palms and spices. It's right on the lakeshore and absolutely quiet. You can sit on chair from your veranda or lawn and watch the many boats plying the lake in the distance. They are... More

If you really want to enjoy Kerala backwaters then Vembanad is the place to be. Though the ride to vembanad lake villas is a bit bumpy and you wonder where you are going,the moment you reach there you realize you have made the right choice. Make sure that you ask Thomas for a pick up so that you have no... More

We stayed here for 3 nights (2 adults and 3 kids) and really enjoyed the beauty of this property. It feels like a more authentic experience without the touristy feel of places like Allepey. The rooms are decent although the mattresses could be improved (too hard for my taste but my husband liked them), the food is very tasty and... More

Amazing place with a beautiful view of Vembanad lake, surrounded by lush greenery. Home-cooked Kerala food made by Mrs. Rashmi was the best food I have ever had! We took a boat ride from the villa on the lake and its surrounding waterways which was an amazing experience.

This is the third time we have stayed here and, on each occasion, have very much enjoyed it. It has a beautiful situation on the lake front and it is possible to swim in the lake. The accommodation is very comfortable, the food excellent and the hospital hosts, Thomas and Reshmi, do their utmost to ensure a pleasant stay. The... More

We had two villas and we really were very happy at the uninhabited stretch of around six acres of land and the lake view. Thomas was really helpful and was a gracious host. Will definitely visit again.

This place is quaint, right at the lakeside and provides for incredibly charming views of the scenic beauty that is Vembanad Lake. Run efficiently and attentively by Thomas and Reshmi, expect good food, fabulous views and quite. The property is tucked away from the cities that are main attractions in the state. And that's it's USP in my view. We... More
