As Kerala is known as God's own country, I feel that Heritage Marari could well be considered God's own homestay! Bruce is a most gracious host and Minni an excellent cook. What I really appreciated about this environment was the atmosphere of relaxation. If we needed something extra, we simply had to ask and our wishes were granted. I would... More

My family had a great stay at Bruce's homestay during Xmas 2014. He is a very kind and considerate host, and the place itself is perfect if you like peace and quiet and home cooked Keralan food. The rooms/bungalows are air conditioned for the most part and were OK bearing in mind the heat. Not having a/c would be tough!... More

I stayed at Bruce's Heritage Marari with my wife, and it just gave a different touch to my whole trip. With old wooden Keralean homes restored in this quite property, right next to a backwater stream give this place a classic touch. And the clean toilets and air conditioned rooms make it as comfortable as a modern resort. Bruce is... More

If you wan't real Kerala style houses and real healthy food, this is the place. Bruce and his family is the most lovely host you can have. We had nice and intrested talks. The beach is just a short walk from the place. If I have the oppurtunity I will stay here again.

I spent one night here and wish i could have stayed longer. Bruce was the most wonderful host and we had great home cooked meals. The rooms are original kerela architecture, but they are fitted with airconditioners. Our host was so kind and generous with his time, he really made sure our stay was fantastic. The beach is an easy... More

Bruce was an excellent host for my stay here with friends. We felt very lucky to have found this place which has recently been beautifully renovated using local, traditional materials. Comfortable beds and hot showers were very welcome, although I'd recommend a mosquito net as insects can get in between gaps in the wood. The homestay also backs right onto... More

Bruce is a wonderful host with a beautiful homestay. I stayed with a group of 8 other travellers for two nights. Bruce went out of his way to look after us, providing delicious food and organising a boat trip for us in nearby Alleppey. I found his prices to be very reasonable and so cannot agree with other comments that... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in early October. Bruce is a superb host! He came to meet the taxi we were travelling in from Munnar and guided them to the place, he went out and got some beers for us and organised a river boat tour for one day of our trip. The food Bruce served was delicious and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Azheekans for a week. The place is basic but cozy. We did had an awful experience at the end of our stay. The owner tried to charged us for meals we didn't take at ridiculous prices. He also kept insisting us to provide a generous tip for the cook on top. He transformed himself... More

Bruce and the team here are incredible - thoughtful and generous with amazing Keralan food and such cosy beds and crisp white linen. They laid a stunning candlelight table for us every evening. And when on a marvellous back water boat ride. There is not much to do here as the beach is very rough and there is no shade... More
