We only stayed one night but is was a good way to see all the houseboats. Avoid weekends if possible as it is very noisy with boats passing all day long. This wasn t really a homestay but lacked the comfort of a hotel, no top sheets for example and no one at hand for any tea etc, we only... More

The name of this Homestay couldn't have been chosen better! The rooms are on the first floor and all have access to the long, big balcony with direct view onto the Backwaters. You can just sit and watch the busy waterways of the Backwaters all day long. Ajish and his wife are very friendly and kind hosts. We got tea,... More

The place is quintessential of a perfect homestay. The place is on the banks of the river, overseeing scenic Vembanad lake and paddy fields. Try your hands with fishing rods, fishing birds and counting house boats – great fun with your young kids. Pick up some water Lilies, splash water sitting on the banks and ride on an experience of...

Titles, names and photographs are usually misleading. When I completed a rickety bus ride from Perumbavoor (coming down here from Moonnar) to Kottayam, I wondered whether this idea of a home-stay in a village was a good idea. The doubt continued when I entered Kumarakom town (or is it village?). None of the views that one saw in picture post-cards... More

The road leading to this property is not good but the moment u see the resort nestled inside the picturesque foliage with the vembanadu backwaters flowing by the side, you are hooked! We spent a single night and wished we had more time to spend here! Authentic Kerala ambience, the view from ou first floor was magical! We could see... More

We had a great day spent at this place for a reasonable room rate with amazing service and atmosphere, the food they had was fantastic and outstanding as we tried many options from their kitchen, the lake view from the room where we stayed was stunning and always had a feeling to stay long at this wonderful place.
