I cannot describe how much I appreciated the stay at Green Palm Homes with Anna, her sons Thomas and Matthew and their families. We were welcome from the very beginning and they opened up their homes to us as if we were long lost family friends. During our stay we enjoyed amazing homemade food and lazy days at the perfect...

We came here as part of a small group tour and it was the nicest place we stayed at. We were rowed across the canal to the homestay and welcomed by Anna with a delicious lunch. Half of our group occupied one of the family's houses while the others were in the house across the courtyard. Our room was really... More

Where to start. We arrived by canoe at this amazing place: the green palm homes. We took the family by surprise, but they immediatly arranged our perfect room and Anna made a great lunch for us. The room was just all we needed. Three beds for three girls with air conditioning and an own balcony with a view on the... More

My fault really. I got lazy and booked 2 nights at Green Palm homes after reading the Lonely Planet recommendation. Years of travel in developing nations has taught me to avoid this tact. Once a hotel/ guesthouse/ cafe is in Lonely Planet it's mostly all downhill... Anyway, the jist is this: I'm a bit bemused as to the positive reviews... More

Everything about this property is what everyone—dreaming of a stay in the backwaters of Kerala—is looking for. Comfortable, relaxing, homey, friendly, modern mixed with old. The care for their home, as a business to bring tourists in, is paramount and from food preparation to guided excursions Green Palm Homes is doing everything right. Thomas our guide and longboat serenader is... More

I loved staying here. Green Palm Homes is on an island and the guesthouse is right on the river. There is a footpath that circles the island (which is quite large), and others that follow canals across the island. (In the center of the island are beautiful rice paddies). Although you are very close to a major road from Alleppey,... More

Stayed two nights with Matthew and his family in the new rooms built around the old family home. Accommodation was clean and well appointed. Food was delicious and complimentary cooking lesson very useful! It was fun to eat with all the other guests and make new connections. Can recommend the paddle boat trip round the back waters for 2 hours... More

The accommodation at the Green Palm Homes was wonderful and comfortable and the owner Maria was an excellent hostess; welcoming, helpful and very knowledgeable. We became friends. We stayed there 2 nights and decided to stay another night instead of going to Cochin. The food was absolutely incredible; prepared by Maria’s mother - every meal was different and gave us... More

Anna's home-cooked meals alone are worth the trip to Green Palm Homes. Be sure to attend one of her cooking demonstrations. We stayed in one of the cottages overlooking a rice paddy for three nights and loved our experience. I would recommend both the nature hike and the backwater boat tour. In addition, you can hike on your own or... More

relax on an island in the backwaters and enjoy the delicious food from your hosts. offer tours and boat trips around the backwaters. moreover give recommendations for other destinations. much better to experience the backwaters from there, than in a house boat!
