Great location, well maintained heritage home, and entertaining conversations that can go on and on! Enjoyed the traditional Kerala food. Loved every bit of it, including the roads by the canals, the sharp turns, the quietness disrupted only by crickets and so on. A pity that we couldn't stay for more. Thanks for the travel and shopping tips for Kottayam.... More

My stay at the Kodianthara Heritage Home in Kumarakom was really agreeable. Both Crispin and Soni are very personable and made me feel like part of the family which is rare. Crispin was very helpful and I enjoyed my discussions with Soni who is a teacher like I am. Their home is a marvel, a renovated, traditional farmhouse which has... More

This is the sort of place that grows on you. The ambience, people, hospitality, food combine to give you a quiet and peaceful holiday. It was enriching to learn a bit about the family and community's cultural history and heritage. The houseboat was an enjoyable experience and the kids spent hours watching the 'water life' in the pond within the... More
