My wife and i were planning to stay for 1 night in the backwaters initially but we changed our mind and decided to sat longer because we really enjoyed the stay and the amazing hospitality of Gopal. We were taken for a Village walk which was full of information and ended with an amazing sunset canoe ride. What an experience!!!

A wonderful modern home, with very comfortable rooms. The rooftop balcony is a great place to relax, enjoy the quiet, or do some morning yoga with Mr. Gopal. Everyone was extremely friendly and wanted to ensure we were well taken care of. Plenty of delicious home cooked food. Mr. Gopal is very knowledgeable and if you are interested, loves to... More

The "homestay" was the part of my trip I was a little apprehensive about ....how basic could it be ? How wrong was I ,from the moment I removed my shoes and entered the door I knew that I had got it wrong.A welcoming family and a beautiful home and every facility that you needed.Nothing too much trouble for this...

This is not what I imagined a Homestay, it is just so beautiful. Across the river on a boat and you are greeted so warmly, we were given a lovely lemon and ginger drink on arrival. The rooms are refurbished and very clean, the food delicious and the views are incredible. We also did a walking tour and had a... More

What a place! I visited Kerala and stayed in Ayana's Homestay, with family. Initially, I was reluctant to stay in Homestay, but later on, after seeing the pics around this place and talking to these guys, I finally decided to take a chance. And, this was proved to be an excellent decision. The natural beauty and Kerala's culture blended with... More
