“Charming stay at genuine, friendly homestay”

A lot of places bill themselves as ‘homestays’, but this is truly one! The owner and his family could not do enough for me. I was also given the most delicious food I’ve had since being in India. I was spoilt; given fresh fruit and offered tea on arrival, and the owner even took me on a little tour on his motorbike. ...Also, I’d recommend going for a massage at ‘Sparsh’ just down the road (you’ll see the signs). Another bunch of lovely, welcoming people.

“The place to stay in Munroe Island”

The Munroe Heritage Inn was the perfect place to stay in Munroe Island. The room was spacious, super clean, confortable with a strong fan if needed. Pretty bathroom, modern and again, very clean. The bed was confortable, best night we had in a while. There's a little terrasse to relax next to the room. The family there is super friendly and kind, making wonderful food and the best chai tea
Suresh was always availabe for us, making everything in his power to make us feel at ease. He even organised us a boat tour and helped us booking our train to go up north!

The room is a great value for money, super cheap for the quality!

Hidden gem! You should definetly stay there if you can, you wont regret it!

“A perfect place to relax”
Reviewed January 22, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

The house is independent from the other house of the owners, just in front of the river. Really quiet place, no traffic, a perfect place to relax. Suresh and his family were wonderful with us, putting a lot of atention to our necessities. They cooked for us amazing homemade Kerala food with no spicy, wich was a big detail. Possible to have breakfast, lunch and dinner in the house.
The room was big, fresh, the bed really confortable and the bathroom impecable. All was really clean. It's possible to take the boat and explore the backwaters of the island just in front of the guesthouse. We really felt like at home and we can't wait to come back!!

“Local experience with amazing family”

An overbooking somewhere else made me stay one night here. Suresh and his family invited me to their place and made me feel at home immediately. The cabin and surroundings are great to stay at with a family. And the food they make you is proper local Indian food. Made my experience on Munroe Island more than worth it!
