We stayed here for 2 nights and were very impressed. We stayed in the stand-alone bungalow at the end of the property. It was much more bungalow residence than homestay. The bungalow was clean, well made, and had a 'rainforest' shower head with, surprise surprise, hot water! The wifi signal was strong even in the rooms, and was fast. It... More

The homestay is located in front of the ashtamudi lake, a quiet and peaceful place to rest. The rooms are well decorated and clean. The bathrooms are clean, big and have hot water! Joseph, the owner, is helpful. He can organize you a trip on the backwaters and even pick you up when you arrive in Kollam. Thanks to his... More

We could not have been more impressed with these stunning villas and their welcoming, attentive and professional owner, Joseph. Our group of three stayed in two rooms; both of which were beautifully decorated, with the bathrooms exceptionally so. We had delicious food several times during our stay. Joseph very kindly went out of his way to organise a houseboat trip... More

Such a lovely place. Quiet, great accommodation, pretty garden and friendly staff. The best place to stay in Kollam I am sure. The staff could not have done more for us and our little cottage was spotless and well designed. They organised our Munro Island trip which was very enjoyable although I would avoid going on a Friday unless you... More

Our best stay so far in India. Beautiful cottages & gardens, lovely people and food and great backwaters (500r per person) and local rickshaw tours (400r per person). Staff also organized rickshaw a to local evening festival in countryside. Nice mellow neighbourhood with super friendly & genuine locals too. Very recommended!

Had no plans to stay in Kollam but just stopped because we were tired coming from Alleppey. Found this villa as number 1 in kollam. Called & found a room easily as it was off season there. The moment I entered, I was stunned looking at the beauty & the location of this place. We initially thought we will stay... More

My only dissapointment was we couldn't stay longer, we stayed here for one night in our travels around Kerala and it couldn't have been more perfect. We were greeted by Joseph and staff who couldn't have been more attentive and helpful and made our stay really comfortable. The location overlooks Ashtamudi Lake and the villas garden is really well kept... More

Stayed for three nights with two whole days to explore. The cottages are very comfortable both inside and out. First afternoon we just flopped about in the garden. Next day, Prabath arranged a backwater trip for us. This was very relaxing although getting to the canoe by taxi was not. Felt our lives were under threat when the taxi boarded... More
