If it weren't that the pictures matched the building, we would have sworn we were not a the same place all the previous reviews have comment on. It appears the family has moved out of the house, leaving the homestay in the hands of a couple of caretakers. The downstairs living area and kitchen are stark, not homey at all. The rooms and bathrooms (with cold water showers) were clean enough. The breakfast was decent (though store-bought chapattis were served) and was served on the roof terrace that sported some dying plants and a pile of broken furniture off to one side. We chose this place as our jumping off point in Kerala because the reviews all comment about how helpful the owners were with helping to sort out planning, etc. for their time in Kerala. The caretakers were kind enough, but didn't have the wider knowledge needed to help us. We had planned to return to Anna's at the end of our trip, but went elsewhere instead. If the cost of the rooms were around 20 USD, then I would say this place is a good value. However, the cost per room is nearly twice that. The 4 of us thought the beds were extremely firm.
