Kait's is a wonderful place. The rooms are simple but the surrounding gardens are spectacular. We loved the gazebo overhanging the water where we ate dinner and breakfast. The food was just excellent as well. Had we known what a wonderful place this was, I think we might have skipped the rice barge experience and just stayed put. We were... More

Great location, meaning you can experience the backwaters rather than just gliding through them on a houseboat. Cute little rooms, maybe a bit tired in places considering the price. Ours had A/C and a fan and overlooked the river. lovely seats/swings on the porch and benches/hammocks scattered around the place, not to mention the gorgeous gazebo on the water where... More

This place is magic! Cute little Keralan-style cottages (everything super clean and tidy) with porches replete with swings, Kait's is bliss. Have a beer out on the water under the cabana and watch then sun go down while Josey and Linet's kids play in the background. Then, hope you're hungry, because Linet has been cooking and you're about to be... More

Spent just 1 night at this homestay which has stunning scenery being located adjacent to the river and naturally there was a good variety of birdlife.Usual herons and kingfishers and a white bellied eagle. We enjoyed using the kayak and drifting up and down the river and exploring one of the narrow inlets which although overgrown with green weed was... More

Great rooms, a fantastic location right on the water, delicious food, and run by a lovely family, this is exactly what we wanted from a homestay. If we ever make it back to Kerala we'll be heading straight back here too. The only negative: like a previous review we also found the recommended taxi driver to be rude and made... More

It may be a little off the beaten track but it was a total surprise to find such an idyllic retreat in these backwaters. We loved it so much we extended our stay and took advantage of the free kayaks and canoes to explore a bit on our own. Jossy and his family were extremely hospitable and the food was... More

We ( family of four with kids aged 5 and 6 ) stayed here in early January 2014. Jossy and his family are incredible hosts and make you feel more than welcome. The positives of this place is the riverfront location with hammocks and service. They also have free kyaks for exploring waterways and village life. The only negative was... More

With our two teenage daughters we stayed here for 3 nights and found our hosts a wonderful introduction to Kerala. Our rooms were fairly basic but clean and very adequate and we loved our open-air bathroom! The cottages look out over banana and coconut trees and the wide river, as does the lovely gazebo where our meals were eaten with... More

Really nice location adjacent to the backwaters. The host and his family were very accommodating - nice rooms, great food, interesting conversations, many activity options and an overall beautiful place. We stayed as a family of 4 with one small child and can easily recommend this for at least a couple of nights. We went for at stroll at the... More

Kait's was the first accommodation we have booked while in Kerala. We stayed there for 2 nights and we were the only guests at the time. The location was perfect and if i knew better i would have stayed longer in places around the backwaters instead of spending a night in a backwater cruise which i found very touristic and... More
