It was really our host that made this such a memorable visit. Joslin is a great guy. Kind, thoughtful, intelligent & well-read, with perfect English. Joslin arranged a driver for our trip to Allepey & the backwaters & also for our onward journey at a good price & with excellent, safe drivers. The food was some of the best we've... More

Our stay at Heritage Haven was impeccable. A strong mixture of excellent service, traditional Keralan building and secluded location. Located just short walk from the beach it is ideal if you want a quiet place away from the busier and more expensive Resorts on the beach front and has a lovely garden and veranda combination. The roons are upstairs and... More

We spent three days at Heritage Haven, (myself, my wife and our son) and we were a little apprehensive beforehand, due to the low price. However, our apprehension could not have been more misplaced. The building itself is over 100 years old; traditional and quirky and a lovely place to stay. Joselin is a marvellous host and could not have... More

Room: stayed as a group of 4 (2 couples) so had the whole place. Beautiful and unique rooms each with a great en suite. Completely exceeded expectations. Location: magnificent. A stones throw from a beautiful unspoiled beach. Everything you need in the village and a short ride into Alleppey for the backwater tour (also magnificent). Service: world class. I've stayed...

I have stayed in HH few months ago and had a really great time thanks mostly to our host,Joselin! he took us everywhere, took such a good care of us that we ended up being spoiled completely:)) The first thing that we liked about this homestay is that even before we came Joselin was available 24/7 on the Whatsapp, which...

I was a guest at this venue with my daughter and niece for ten days. Our host, Joselin, made sure to make each day a memorable one! He took us even to the far away Munar to see the tea plantations and ride the elephants, to the famous backwaters of Allepey where we even visited a local s house and... More

Joslin our host was amazing, just who you would want to meet and who's place you'd want to stay at when your away from home. I booked this the evening before and I personally suggest emailing Jolson first for a great rate. Joslin organized us a boat tour through Alappy from his own knowledge when we mentioned we'd like to... More

Host Joselin's warm hospitality made my stay in this reconstructed Keralan house all the more wonderful. He and his cook provided delicious breakfasts (dal puttu, a steamed rice cake filled with coconut) and dinners (grilled fish and spicy crab) typical of the region. Joselin was always available to ease logistics, whether arranging round-trip tuk tuk ride to Fort Kochi or... More

I only envisaged staying a week (max) here, but lingered for almost three. A winning combination of outstanding service and stunning surrounds made it incredibly difficult to leave. As a lone traveller, the option to eat with other guests was a definite attraction. However, it was the friendship extended by Joselin - the host - which had the most impact.... More

Just walking though the gate into the property you felt more relaxed (and possibly even a shade cooler, although that was probably my imagination!). Set slightly away from the main road the whole place feels very peaceful. Only stayed for lunch unfortunately, as the rooms were simply beautiful, easily the best I saw on my trip to Kerala. The food... More
