When travelling in Kerala in March 2012 i spent only one night in this homestay but enjoyed it very much. Priya and her mother were so nice and i had a very warm welcoming - they wanted me to feel at home and that was really relaxing before my adventure on the Backwaters.
Dinner was quite good and in the end Priya didn't want me to pay for it - so i got it for free! I'm not sure if she's a little bit aware that the room price is too high and this was the reason why i got it cheaper...and this is the only reason why i don't give 5 stars to this nice homestay - compared to the prices in India it's too expensive, but because i was booking it at home it seemed to be cheap. I learned after one week that they have really different prices in India - everything is so cheap and you can sleep for 300-600INR/night (which i did at the end of the trip) but on the other hand Homestays offer much for what you pay and so i think it was ok!
I can definitely recommend this Homestay!
