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.

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

Ideal holiday spot if you are holidaying to relax and unwind from the stress of daily city life. Large open spaces with water front to the Vembanad Lake. Around 8 cottages, with lots of greenary and lawn. Kids can enjoy the fishing, pedal boat, hammocks etc. Since it is like a home stay, the property owners family also stays there.... More
