We visited philipskutty farm at the end of our trip as a treat. And my what a treat. The place is lovely, Anu and Mummy are amazing strong women and their work is meticulous as they labor to attend to every individual preference. We felt invited to their home. The food was delicious and the best we had in kerala... More

Just one lovely night here in a lovely Keralan chalet overlooking the waterways. Arrived by canoe and were immediately embraced by the tranquility of the place. Annie, our host shared the story of the farm and made us very welcome. The meals we had were outstanding and very fresh, and the chalet was beautiful and spotless. I spent a happy... More

The whole experience from the get-go was outstanding. You arrive to the island via a canoe and it sets the atmosphere for your stay. You are greeted by one of the owners and taken into the main home and all the details are fully explained.The establishment is run by two women and they are a loving family that pleases beyond...

I have never felt more welcomed or provided for at a home-stay anywhere in my travels. Anu and Mommy are the most thorough hosts and what an absolutely magic location to enjoy their hospitality. I spent three nights here at the end of two weeks or hiking and frenetic activity in Kerala and it was the perfect place to slow... More

Philipkuttys Farm is a true delight. The level of warmth and welcome, to the beautiful bungalow accommodation and the delightful food makes for a wonderful stay. The peace and tranquility of the Kerala backwaters is embodied in the idyllic surroundings of this accommodation. For a truly magical experience give yourself a treat and stay there.

Upon arrival by boat, as you walk up to the door of the house, the smell of high quality butter and fried onions wafts through the air. This was one of the highlights of our trip. There isn't much to do on the farm but it's nice to walk around the property and take a backwater cruise at sunset. The... More

Our 4th stay here. A wonderful welcome from Anu and Aniamma(Mummy!) This is such a calm and relaxing place - nothing to do but watch the birds, the boats and eat the most delicious food. All the staff are a delight. Spent my birthday here complete with surprise birthday cake! Had great fun with other guests telling stories of Indian... More

Arriving by punt across the river sets the scene for this peaceful spot. An ideal place to watch the Keralan back waters drift past your door and to enjoy the magical cooking that keeps on coming. We particularly enjoyed the sunset cruise and drifting past the Chinese fishing nets, spotting kingfishers and eagles. The cottages were a joy with acres... More

We just came back from a wonderful trip to Kerala. We spend 2 night in Philipskutty's farm, with our daughter (5 years) and we loved it! Anu, her family and their staff took very good care of us, the home cooked food was absolutely delicious and they even made special food for our daughter, who still needs to get used... More

A perfect stay from the first minute to the last. This place is a truly gem in Kerala, a must stay if you have the budget. Everything there is absolutely amazing: the location (only place on this green island, accessible only by boat, the arrival at the farm is an attraction it itself), the food (the best we had during...
