Myself and a friend stayed with Babu in both his surburban homestay and the backwater home last year. We were only in Kerala for 10 days and seeing the positive reviews thought... More

We stayed with Babu for 5 nights over New Year and would have loved to have stayed longer. Babu and his wife cooked delicious Keralan food for us both at breakfast and dinner and also provided one litre bottles of water, free of charge. Babu generously provided transport and only charged us a very modest fee to cover petrol. His... More

We staying with Babu and his family for 2 nights when we first arrived in Kerala. The whole family made us feel welcome but without being intrusive. As the home was alittle far from the centre Babu would pick us up and drop us off. Also is worth mentioning the food was delicious! Home cooked and very tasty.
