I arrived to a very warm family welcome. The location on the edge of the lake was wonderful with beautiful views. A very traditional house in a lovely setting. I was shown some local cooking techniques and the breakfasts and evening meals were absolutely superb. I thoroughly recommend The Lovedale Homestay

Beautiful views on the lake from the dinning place. The rooms are comfortable with a good A/C. The location is directly at the lake in a village where you can easily reach e.g. Alleppey with an auto. The owner Anshad is very helpful in organising activities as you wish. The food was super delicious, great to get the local dishes.... More

Incredible location and Anshad is a real gent. This is a homestay so don't have expectations of a hotel. You will get a chance to unwind and see the real Kerala. Via email, Anshad organised taxis to and from the autostay, and whilst there, any necessary auto-rickshaw trips. Ameena is a softly-spoken, friendly presence and showed us how to make... More

Where do I start....such an amazing experience- Lovedale is really a home away from home. Anshad was friendly and accommodating from the first telephone call. He arranged for a cab to pick us up from the airport, we did the usual tourist sightseeing at Fort Kochi. Then we headed to Lovedale in the evening and reached there by 9:00 at... More

We spent three nights at Lovedale. Anshad and his wife Amina are the warmest of hosts, greeting you the moment you step out of a taxi, plying you with hot tea or coffee and delicious fried jackfruit, and helping you plan each day's itinerary. Need a houseboat for a few hours? Anshad knows just the guy. Want a tuk-tuk to... More

We made some last minute changes to our itinerary to stay here and throughout the email conversations that I had with Anshad, i was given prompt assurances of the booking. And even though we had a short, overnight stay, I must say, we loved it right from the moment we stepped onto their lawns. I'm sure you have many homestays... More

Lovedale was such a welcoming, scenic and relaxing place to stay. We only spent three nights there but wish we would have had more time. We stayed in one of the cottages and loved it. It was large, clean, lots of windows, quiet and very comfortable beds. We took almost all our meals there and highly recommend others do the... More

We were sad that we could only spend two nights in this wonderful, true home stay. Anshad and his lovely wife Amina are truly great hosts, from the warm and friendly welcome at the gate and throughout our visit, they made our stay an unforgettable one. The property is located right on the shore of the magical Alleppey back waters.... More

This was our first time in Kerala and Mr. Anshad and his wife Amina were so gracious, helpful and made us feel so welcomed in their home. Amina is a fabulous cook and the breakfasts (included in your rate plan) were really good. Infact, my husband and I loved her cooking so much that we mostly ate our other meals... More
