We stayed only one night at the backwater homestay, but it was great! If you just want to relax for a couple of days and taste some real backwater atmosphere this place is perfect. You can go for nice walks and boat trips or just relax with a book in one of the many hammocks. And the food is just... More

We had a wonderful few nights here and would recommend anyone else to do so also. Very reasonably priced for the luxury, and the food was excellent also. Worth going back to this wonderful part of the world for this home stay alone, we will definitely visit again.

Superb location and great hospitality. These two words comes to my mind, when I think about Bacwater heritage homestay. Mr Xavier is such a wonderful person, he arranged my taxi in Kerala. I have visited this place with my Mom during last month vacation. I didn't expect such an awesome experience from the Kerala homestays. I used to stay in... More

Stayed with Mr.Xavier for two nights in April 2014 and have to say that we wished we could have stayed longer. The food at backwater heritage was some of the best we experienced ever. The waterfront location and greenish surroundings feels like you are in heaven. Hope, I could visit again in next year vacation. Wishing you all the best.

We have spent two days in the homestay and we were charmed. The place is calm, comfortable and very relaxing. M. Xavier Joseph can arrange a boat trip in the canals nearby, it's a great insight into the life of the backwaters. His wife is an excellent cook and both are attentionates hosts. Great experience.
