The place is serene, comfortable and clean. A gem of a retreat tucked away from the hustle and bustle but when you need to access shopping or a trip to the town , you're stones throw. Meena is an excellent host and even greater cook. It really felt like a home away from home.

This has to be one of the more beautiful places in the world, and Meena will make sure you get the most out of your stay. Lovely homestay set in beautiful lush gardens. The highlights here, apart from the gorgeous setting, are Meena's cooking (amazing), conversation (highly engaging) and her knowledge of local attractions and amenities. If you do stay... More

We spend three nights in this tidy and well kept home stay. Meena offers fabulous meals and she may even be willing to teach you some of the secrets behind the taste. So this is a visit where you may bring home more than lasting memories to your life ... that of adding new flavors and dishes in your own... More

My husband and I went to Kerala on our honeymoon in December 2012 and Villa Prakriti was one of the only homestays we visited. We absolutely loved it. Meena is a brilliant hostess, who instantly made us feel welcome and at home. She is full of life and so knowledgable, not just about the local area but India as a... More

We visited Meena's homestay as part of a culinary tour around Kerala. Not only is Meena herself one of the most welcoming, interesting, vibrant people we met on our trip, she is a fabulous and knowledgeable cook. You won't want to eat anywhere else! We had a fascinating cooking lesson at every meal, in which we learned about food from... More

Meena is a charming hostess who made me and my 19yr old son feel at home as soon as we arrived. She is an excellent cook and worked hard to prepare a variety of tasty local dishes for us to sample. Her cookery lesson was great fun and definitely worthwhile as we learnt lots of tips to try out back... More

Staying at Meena's wasn't quite what I expected although it's difficult to tell what a place is going to be like sometimes. The house itself is very interesting and has a lovely seating area with a central space with plants open to the elements where you can sit and read or use the free wi-fi. The bedroom was basic and...
