We stayed at the lovedale home stay for two nights. The host, Anshad, was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Food Delicious, homemade keralan food! Anshad's wife cooked for us. We always had plenty to eat. I am gluten free and this family went out of their way to make food that I could eat. Room Very clean, spacious and comfortable.... More

Lovedale Lakeside is a wonderful and peaceful patch of Kerala. It is possible to just sit around admiring the lake and eating the great food of the hosts (the fresh whole fish curry is the best, but everything was delicious and very plentiful) but it also makes a great home base for local adventures. The host helped us find an... More

This is a lovely oasis right on the water. Our cabin was spacious and had lots of wardrobe space. But, we spent little time in it. The gardens are just too lovely not to be in them as much as possible. A large covered patio next to the water, with its lovely breezes, and ceilings fans make spending hours outside... More

We were a group of 4 girls on a week long trip in Kerala. Booked lovedale through agoda.com at an attractive rate for one night's stay post our houseboat experience. I have to say this turned out to be our best decision of the trip. Anshad & Amina were perfect hosts. The rooms were quite big, clean & cozy with... More

This homestay is unbelievable. First, the location is fantastic, right on the lake. The room we stayed in was clean and cozy, the beds super comfortable! The food that our host prepared was one of the best on our 3 month trip in India! We felt at home here from the moment we arrived and our kids loved every second... More
