Hospitality: the host was helpful and guided us through the lane from the main road to the bed and breakfast. they were warm and welcoming. Made every effort to make us feel at home. Breakfast was good. Approach: the bed and breakfast is completely isolated with no access to any local market or shops which must be more than 3-4... More

Our stay was 3 nights at this accommodating home stay. Completely basic accommodation so typical of Kerala but with a position like this it makes up for it. Only criticism was cleanliness but we suspected the bathroom had been overlooked in the changeover. Lovely breakfasts enjoyed on the verandah outside your room and tiny kitchen by the water served fabulous... More

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

We stayed in Backwater Breeze for 2 days / 1 night. Ajish and team has done a awesome job in arranging a boat house trip the prior nigh and also made sure we got the to and fro transport from the Kottayam railway station. Location of Backwater Breeze is perfect. It is right next to the back waters, away from... 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
