Green Chromide Homestay located in Munroe Island Kollam, south India is a perfect place to spend your vacation. Our home stay is on the bank of the river Kallada and gives you a mesmerizing view of the river surrounded by coconut trees which are bending towards the river as though they are bowing river Kallada. Munroe island is located at the confluence of Ashtamudi lake and the Kallada river in Kollam district in Kerala, South India. The Island is well connected by road, rail and island water navigation. The place is named in honor of Residential Colonel John Munroe of the formerly princely state of Travancore. The island is about 13.4 sq km. Whats in the name ?…… Green Chromide is a variety of fish, which is favorite of most the Keralites and is commonly found in this area and off course one of the main dish in our menu !!!

My daughter and I stayed at Green Chromide Homestay for four days where Sunaina and her beautiful family provided everything we could hope for in a homestay and much more. The amenities were great including the cleanest rooms we had stayed in, hot water and reliable wifi, however what made our stay a highlight of our trip was the family’s genuineness and warm hospitality. As a host, Sunaina is organised, professional, responsive, a great cook and knowledgeable about the local area and its history. Her traditional South Indian cooking was so nourishing predominantly made with locally sourced organic produce such as eggs from her neighbour. In this real, homely environment, we often had spontaneous cooking lessons standing around the stove watching her make chapattis, chai or freshly caught Green Chromide fish wrapped in banana leaf (pollichathu, a must try!). The family were full of sightseeing recommendations, assisted with organising transport to and from the accommodation and organised tours for us. We also had access to their bicycles and spent hours exploring the Island, meeting so many welcoming, generous and curious residents. Our faces hurt from smiling so much! The island itself is stunning and the backwaters are picturesque, there’s amazing birdwatching from the hammocks set up by the river at the front of the property. What stood out for me was the family’s passion to share their culture and home life, and the generosity of their time. Our stay at Green Chromide Homestay was a complete joy, we will be back again. Sunaina and family, nandi!

The only complaint I could make about our stay here is that we didn't stay for long enough. The location is great, right on the river and Sunaina and her family are so welcoming. From helping us with a connection from the airport, recommending activities as well as cooking delicious and authentic local food they really go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay. I would highly recommend this homestay, just make sure you have enough time to explore!

I recently stayed for three nights at Green Chromide. Sunaina and her family were extremely friendly, helpful and worked very hard to ensure a perfect stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and they even provided hand soap! Rates are very reasonable, and the food was very good. Make sure you explore the Island on a bike, and don't forget to visit the 'Mocktail' juice maker, his juices are amazing. Cheers, Christopher Bennett.

The family was lovely and went above and beyond to make our stay as pleasant as possible. All the meals were cooked by the family and it was an authentic Indian experience. We got to try a lot of Keralas special meals and food. The family showed us across the village and even helped us with booking tickets to the train. We loved our stay there and will definitely come back.
