We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the tranquil, scenic setting and the homestay experience. The cabins have lovely verandas where you can chill out on swing seats and just watch the backwater life unfold. It’s such a peaceful place, and particularly welcome after spending time in the hectic cities. We decided to try the evening meal on... More

We had a superb three days at Kait's being looked after by the delightful Jossy, Linet and their young children. The homestay is right on the banks of the beautiful Pampa river and you can sit on the veranda of your comfortable cabin watching life go by on the river. Houseboats, canoes and thousands of ducklings on their way to... More

It's no secret from all the reviews on TripAdvisor that Kait's Home is wonderful. We stayed 5 nights, deciding to forego a night on a houseboat to remain another night at this lovely place situated right on the river with many side canals, rice paddies, villages and rural sights to explore on foot, by canoe or motorboat. We were in... More

We stayed twice at Kait's Home for a total of 12 days and loved being there. The location is beautiful and it is very relaxing to sit by the river and watch life float by. Jossey and his wife and family are fantastic hosts and the food they prepare is delicious. The rooms are rustic and basic but clean and... More

Rather than cruising down the river we choose to stay at this lovely home right on the river and watch village life unfold around us. Jossey and his family were wonderful hosts both at the house and on several excursions (walking and paddling). The food was wonderful, the rooms clean and welcoming and the setting picture perfect. Highly recommend if... More

right on a peaceful stretch of backwater but still some passing traffic to keep you interested. Easy walk to village.lots of food which is lovely but too much of it! Rooms comfortable hot showers would highly recommend avoiding allepey and staying here instead. The ferry from allepey takes 1.5hrs not the 30mins quoted in guide book but interesting trip.

Kaits Homestay is a real haven in Southern Indian Backwaters. The accommodation is in cottages separate to the main house, and one of the cottages is right on the water where you can enjoy watching river life. The meals are the best we have had in India and are served in a separate rotunda built out over the water. Jossy... More

We shied away from the traditional cruise on a big boat. The Rs 10k - 15k prices were 4 or 5 times what we would have paid anywhere else. Instead we had a lovely time at Kait's Home where we were looked after perfectly by our host Josey Thomas. The food wes delicious and we felt genuinely welcome. At Rs... More

This homestay has 4 waterfront cottages right on a picturesque canal that sees canoe paddling fishermen and rice barge houseboats cruising past all day. The accommodation is very comfortable with soft beds, warm showers, A/C and cane chairs and hammocks outdoors. Jossy is a great host and serves delicious Keralan meals at the unique canal rotunda.
