We stayed two nights at vishnus place. The place is wonderful. A good standard and a one of a kind hospitality. We also made a tour on a canoe in the morning and vishu explained us a lot about the region and locals. The food cooked by his mom also was good. Thanks for the stay vishnu!
it is a good place. vishnu is a good guy. he knows many of this lovely place.i like the spicy crab curries made by vishnu'mum.i really enjoy the sunrise on the backwater, the friendly people and vishnu's guide. vishnu can show you many aspects of indian life and culture.
The homestay is in a very calm and beautifull location, air is very fresh and the host is perfecly friendly and helpfull. The host can arrange a very nice boat trip, home made deliciuos food is also available as well as show around. The place highly recommended!
Vishnu was great right from the start- helping us to get from Kochi to Munroe Island, guiding us around the village during our stay and helping us find onward travel.
The sunrise canoe trip is a must (and good value at 450 per person) and Vishnu's mother's cooking is the best.
There are bikes available to use for free throughout the day- which is another good way to see the village.
The room is really nice- feels really new and clean.
There's only one guest room and Vishnu and his mother go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I'd definitely recommend staying here.
We loved staying with Vishnu and his family! Vishnu is a great host and went out his way to help us with anything we needed. He gave us a sunrise tour of the local backwaters and it was great to see how village life works.
His mothers food is delicious, and the room is comfy, clean and spacious for two people.
Thanks Vishnu! Hopefully see you again soon! Sarah and Josh :)
A beautiful experience to get to know the backwaters and the people living there. We stay two nights at vishnu's Home Stay and also have a canoe travell with him, he explains all about the island and the lifestyle there. We eat the excellent food that her mother cooked. Thay also have bycicles available. All the family is really friendly :De
We think is the best way to visit the backwaters, much more better experience and much moore cheaper than getting a hauseboat.
Vishnu is very knowledgeable about the area, and speaks very good English which is great considering there is a lot to learn about Monroe Island. His mother is very nice and they welcomed us into their home with welcome arms. Would recommend to anyone wishing to stay in a place a bit off the beaten path.
