We had a comfortable stay for two days at this cool Heritage home. Really enjoyed the authentic home cooked meals ( Dosas, appams, Puttu chicken curry ) by our hostess Priya. Thanks Priya, her mother and Parmeshwar for all the guidance and assistance making our trip a memorable one. The D'Souza's from Mumbai.

We stayed for one night - one the way from Munar to Allepey. This home stay is beautiful - we had a large bedroom as well as a sitting room, both lovely. The house has been a family home for generations, which gives it lots of character.The hosts are gracious and welcoming. Two minor quibbles - the wifi wasn't working... More

We had a three day stay and found it spacious enough for the three of us including a 16 month old daughter. The old lady of the house was courteous and helpful. The place inspite of looking neat and clean, though had severe red ant infestation. A morsel of food or a dead insect would attract them by the hordes... More

I loved the tranquility and humble beauty of this home stay. It's tucked in the suburban area of Kottayam so make sure you have Priya's mobile number on you so that she can direct your driver to the home. Priya wasn't in Kottayam when my family and I stayed there but her mother was looking after us. We were able... More

Clean home, pretty garden, coffee on the porch with my newspaper, outstanding Kerala food served three times a day, and many many kindnesses. Priya will suggest and arrange outings,... More

We stayed for a very short time (just a few hours) at Kanjirakkattu, but it made a lasting impact on us. I was looking for a day tour on our last day in Kerala, and I posted the query here on TA forum. Priya (the owner) replied promptly and fixed me a trip to the Poonjar hills, complete with lunch...
