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

This place was such a surprise and we loved it! Our driver arrived at the side of a waterway and we were rowed across with our luggage to this interesting old farmhouse opposite. We were given a great welcome by George & Bindi followed by a lovely lunch served on a banana leaf. Bindi is a superb cook and we... More

Our initial impression of the homestay was one of opulence and comfort. Excellent location on the riverside. We were warmly greeted with a refreshing glass of homemade lemonade. The room was cool, clean and comfortable and had a table outside where we could watch life go by on the river. We enjoyed chatting with our hosts who were happy to... More

We loved it here from the moment we arrived George and Bindi made us feel at home giving us fresh juice while they showed us George's snake boat trophies. Next was the most delicious lunch an array of different curries and side dishes served on a banana leaf. It was really interesting walking around the island, seeing the children coming... More

Charming hosts. Corteous and attentive family. Tasty local breakfast. Excellent cooking with many extras throughout the day. 2 large rooms only with your private porch in a 150 year old house; all amenities. A boat readily available to explore the small canals and their everyday live. Colourful village, canal and rice field walking tour right at your doorstep. Situated across... More

It's pretty good, though it's a guest house not a home-stay. Both George and Bhindu are kind and helpful, but there's no interaction with them beyond what you would have with any guest-house owner. The rooms are OK, but not great - comfortable bed, air-conditioner working but gets very noisy, shower is outside in a private yard, but we didn't... More

My wife and I spent five nights at Thevercad, a working rice farm, with the intention of exploring the backwaters from a good, relaxing base. Tripadvisor reviews suggested Thevercad would fit the bill and it did. The location is perfect; within the local community but isolated from road traffic with water in front and rice fields behind, the latter providing... More

I was taken here for lunch during a day out on a houseboat. The welcome and hospitality was so good. I was given an excellent lunch - so good I needed a pull up to get back on the boat! I was shown around and the rooms looked excellent in old Indian style. Indian hospitality at its best. If you... More
