Myself & two friends booked to go stay with Benny & his family after reading the reviews from others that had stayed here & it was the best decision we made - India is so hot, busy & crazy but Benny's home stay is a little place of tranquility. He picked us up from the airport & stopped for coconut drinks on the way then we enjoyed lunch on the veranda with an amazing view of the backwaters & the Chinese Fishing nets. We went out to go see his prawn farm & we were a novelty for the local school children! Spent some time kayaking out of the water which is the best way to take in the amazing scenery & we got to see the locals fishing & helped haul in a catch from Benny's neighbours Chinese fishing net after the sun went down! Benny & his lovely wife (who is expecting their third child, the first two are football mad & the most well behaved kids ever) made us feel amazingly welcome, made everything so very simple & gave us a true India home stay experience.
