The backwater breeze is beautiful and its perfectly located with the view of the backwater and the lake. You can take a boat ride from here itself and Ajish, the host is very helpful. We had no issues with this place at all. This is exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for peace... More

A perfect place to stay, to travel to the nearby attractions, and for a great food. Ajeesh, the owner, was very very helpful for arranging everything, right from the start to end. Overall, we were very much happy with the stay and enjoyed every moment of it.

The only real thing to do in Kumarakom is boating. A variety of boats - from house boats (not worth the price!) to the simple canoes are available. Taking an early morning ride in a booth with covered seats and a cooling fan is advisable. The native carnatic music can be exquisite in the setting! Either an early morning ride... More

A perfect quiet locating for a discerning traveler. A place where genuine smiles blend with generosity and culture that touch your hearts. Hosts become a family and serve you as their own with humility and affection. Spectacular views of the lake from the balcony. Clean and spacious rooms. Front windows or rear, nature, nature and nature view alone. Rejuvenating canal... More

Ajish and his wife made our stay very comfortable. Food was great - both the breakfast (made at their home) and lunch & dinner at his uncle's restaurant just next door. Helped arranging for the Kerala ayurvedic massage, few hours of house-boat and organic coconut oil. Air-conditioning, hot water for bath, all are available. Had a nice & direct view... More

It was an amazing relaxing 2 nights vacation for us at Backwater Breeze Homestay at Kumarkom. The location is just mindblowing- you can spend hours sitting at the balcony and watch the houseboats and canoe pass by. The facilities inside the room are good enough. The owner Ajish and family is ever smiling and ready to help. The nearby open... More

We started from Fort Kochi in the Morning and reached at Kotayam around 12 PM. It is almost 30 mins by auto from Kotayam to reach Komarkom. We had booked Kerela House Boat Retreat and it was a treat. We spent from noon to evening in backwater. It was amazing. Breath taking view of great lake, nearby passing house boats,... More

Location is awesome.You can sit and watch boats passing by. Migratory birds come everyday to the nearby trees. Ajish and his family are very helpful. When no was available for canoe ride he took us in self driven canoe. They prepared special food for baby. Breakfast was tasty and plenty.
