This was won of our favourite places in a 4 week trip to India. The food was simply to die for with so much of it and great variety. The room is all wood and spotlessly clean, the outdoor bathroom was a delight, no hot water but you don't need it at all. It has a big veranda with a... More

your house boat keeps on floating on the water and your mind becomes feather light. The scenery around is out of word. They feed you with hot best food special to Kerala. It is a unique experience entirely different from the house boats in Kashmir that are not floating and moving . The rooms are small but with all the... More

We stayed here for three nights in March. What a delightful experience! The waterfront home with just two guest rooms is as described by the other reviewers. Go for the relaxation; go to sit on your own veranda watching the river life passing by in front of you; go to savor Bindu’s incredible Kerala cooking; go to hear how George... More

We had an unforgettable two-night stay in this really lovely homestay. George and Bindu were perfect hosts and kindness itself. The house is beautiful and traditional, with the two rooms for guests attached to the main residence but very private. The room was very well appointed, comfortable and spotless, and the outside bathroom was stylish and a great treat. You... More

We only spent 1 night with George and Bindu but we loved the experience and wished we could have stayed longer. They are a lovely couple and make you feel very welcome. The property has been in George's family for 200 years. It is situated on an island and access is by boat. The riverside location is lovely and we... More

We had the most peaceful stay here, and this homestay had the best food during our Kerala trip! George and Bindu tried hard to give us different food throughout our stay and it was so delicious every time! We really felt like we ate everything that Kerala had to offer. The rooms were nice and the outdoor bathroom was really... More

It was magical to arrive at the homestay being rowed across the river; it really is a beautiful house. Our room was very clean, had a very comfortable bed and air con. The outdoor bathroom was a really great experience...I felt very far away from my London life! George and Bindi are incredibly welcoming and brilliant hosts, and helped organise... More
