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

This small homestay couldn't host our party (not enough rooms for us!) but we'd had it recommended and so arranged to eat lunch there one day when visiting the beach from where we did stay 15 minutes away. The host and food was excellent; he understood exactly what we wanted as overseas tourists and provided delicious local cuisine. We didn't... More

This stunning heritage property is unlike anywhere else I visited in Kerala... you step through the gateway from the heat outside, and the garden feels cool and tranquil. Ahead - the ornate wooden frame of a traditional Keralan home is balanced on pillars above an open-air dining room & kitchen. The house is tucked in among trees, a little way... More

We had a delightful stay at Heritage Haven. Our host Jocelyn totally exceeded our expectations. He kindly arranged transport from the airport for us which was safe and reliable. He met us with warmth and attention on our arrival and these qualities didn't alter throughout our whole stay. Everything he arranged for us was faultless unexpected and enjoyable. We spent... More

A more than 100-year old house was dismantled and brought to Allepi to serve a home stay - this is a truly interesting story. Not only the house provides you with an accommodation close to the beach, it also brings you to an authentic place you would unlikely reach - for a place with such houses in not on the... More

Joselin's homestay was recommended to me by two different friends who did not know one another, So I knew I had to include it on my second trip to Kerala. Immediately I knew this was a very special Home Stay. Its is a very lovely building. An old wooden house transported from some miles away and reassembled on site. Though... More

We stayed as a family of 4 adults for two nights here at Heritage Haven. It truly is a little haven away from the heat of the day, in a traditional wooden building full of character and very comfortable. A private covered veranda is a great place to sit, read and hear the local village sounds. Joslin, our host has... More

We would highly recommend this as a great place to stay on your holiday to the backwaters region.It is about 15 minutes from the Alleppey which is where the boats leave from but Mararikulam has a far superior beach to Alleppey and has far more of a feel of being in a little Indian village and gives you a great...

Just an amazing place! An Indian friend of mine helped me to find it last minute. I am so grateful I had a chance to stay at the Heritage Haven and to experience the hospitality of its hosts! In this marvelous wooden building, the former Brahman house, you can feel the warmth and the beauty of an Indian soul. I... More
