One of the absolute highlights of our time in South India and Sri Lanka. Worth venturing away from the more touristy Alleppey for. The current photo on the front cover of the South India & Kerala Lonely Planet was taken here (thought Lonely Planet doesn’t credit them, or have them in the guidebook!), that pretty much sums this place up...

When we went there in our rickshaw we thought we would up on the wrong place, we did not realize how far it was. Bumpy small roads in yhe middle of nothing and then suddenly we were there. The location was very beautiful with a view of the backwaters. It was so relaxing and calming to be at this place... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with our kids (12 & 14) between Christmas and NY. We chose this place because we didn't want to go to the much more touristy areas. And v pleased we made that choice. Front rooms have a lovely feel. All rooms are very basic but you need nothing more. I had been v concrperned... More

We stayed at the backwater farm house for three nights over the Christmas period. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit there and we would highly recommend the place to anybody else who is looking to escape the hustle and bustle of India. Shortly after arriving we retreated to a enjoyable hand-punted boat ride along the beautiful backwaters, by a wonderful guide.... More

I spent 3 days with a friend at the Backwater Farm House. It was the best 3 days we spent in India. Having organised the trip with Eby via e-mail, I was in constant communication with him before arrival he was very helpful whilst I was planning so I knew we would be in good hands. Upon arrival to Kochi... More

Our stay at BWFH was the highlight of our time in South India. It's location is far superior to those further south and allows you to experience the true, uninterrupted beauty of the Kerala backwaters. Unlike Alleppey, the backwaters here offer complete tranquility with no motorised boats - a real village experience. Aside from its location, the warmth, generosity and... More

We stayed at farmhouse for 4 days in December 2013. We spent one night on one of their houseboats and 3 nights in a beautiful detached bungalow right by the water. It is very difficult to express this experience with words. Located right at the intersection of 2 canals this place is really magic, quiet and authentic. We used the... More

I have been there in Backwater farmhouse in August 16th with my family. We were a bit late to reach there to board houseboat. Edi and his wife who runs this business were very kindful and their homely food especially fish fry was great. We had a very nice feel by at the Farmhouse sit-out which was our one picturesque...

We came here a couple of years ago (OH wrote that review) and it's still ****** marvelous. This time we brought friends who had never been to India before and we wanted to show them a real slice of the backwaters. We stayed in the cottages, it's still very quiet, great food, Sugu's boat trip was superb and we all... More

Run by a very warm and loving family, we found them on tripadvisor and very glad we did. We stayed our last night here after staying in some very luxurious hotels and resorts in Kochi & Kumarakoram. Its quite rustic and some construction going on to make more rooms. Its quite secluded and tough to find. Let them arrange for... More
