Very simple but spotless rooms, relaxing terrace, more like a B&B than a family homestay, as we only met 3 men. Far from 'luxury' but the owners could not have been more welcoming, friendly and obliging and offered plenty of advice without being "hard-sell".

“The day trip to the backwaters organised through the front desk was amazing. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Do not miss it!”

“Not much price difference between getting an extra mattress and a single room as we were three people we opted for the latter.”
