A little hard to find, but with help from the locals, our rickshaw driver soon found the place and we were greeted by the wonderful Joslin. What a great host he is - full of information and suggestions as to where to go and what to see. Also, having studied Conversational English at university, we were able to have some... More

Completely unique homestay in terms of the wood-panelled walls, stained glass windows, veranda swing-seat and lovely sandy seating area and dining space underneath the house, but what really makes this place something special is Joslin. From the moment he met us at the front gate, to arranging cars for us to our next destination, he was a charming and dedicated... More

We loved this place and it's story ( an old Brahmin house that was dismantled, transported and rebuilt in Marari ). It is full of charm and character with tall ceilinged rooms.There are only 2 rooms here and the place itself is quiet and private. The food is really tasty too. Joslin who runs the place is such a nice... More

It was really our host that made this such a memorable visit. Joslin is a great guy. Kind, thoughtful, intelligent & well-read, with perfect English. Joslin arranged a driver for our trip to Allepey & the backwaters & also for our onward journey at a good price & with excellent, safe drivers. The food was some of the best we've... More

Our stay at Heritage Haven was impeccable. A strong mixture of excellent service, traditional Keralan building and secluded location. Located just short walk from the beach it is ideal if you want a quiet place away from the busier and more expensive Resorts on the beach front and has a lovely garden and veranda combination. The roons are upstairs and... More

We spent three days at Heritage Haven, (myself, my wife and our son) and we were a little apprehensive beforehand, due to the low price. However, our apprehension could not have been more misplaced. The building itself is over 100 years old; traditional and quirky and a lovely place to stay. Joselin is a marvellous host and could not have... More

Room: stayed as a group of 4 (2 couples) so had the whole place. Beautiful and unique rooms each with a great en suite. Completely exceeded expectations. Location: magnificent. A stones throw from a beautiful unspoiled beach. Everything you need in the village and a short ride into Alleppey for the backwater tour (also magnificent). Service: world class. I've stayed...

Joslin our host was amazing, just who you would want to meet and who's place you'd want to stay at when your away from home. I booked this the evening before and I personally suggest emailing Jolson first for a great rate. Joslin organized us a boat tour through Alappy from his own knowledge when we mentioned we'd like to... More
