Kanjirakkattu Heritage Home
Reviewed May 15, 2012

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!

Wonderful hospitality and lovely food. Pachu and his grandma really made us feel at home. They made us feel at home (they even arranged a car for us to take us to train station at 2 am!)
A beautiful family, thanks!

This was a wonderful three night stay in a lovely quiet house with a lovely family. The food was unbelievably good, with fresh fruit juices, salad and Keralan food. We loved hearing about Pachu's school day and so much enjoyed Priya's warm welcome and companionship. I certainly hope that someday I can go back.

Stayed 4 nights..Elegant old house ( 75 years old approx) Priya & her mum are very nice hosts..room is very nice & spacious (mix of antic furniture ) nice garden..all is VERY clean. Food is basic Indian ..fish,vegetables etc.. & if you want anything special just ask Priya.Town center is at 7 mtes with a rickshaw, Priya can book Ayureveda treatments for you too & gave me some good tips e.g...trip on the backwaters for Rs10 ! ( normal ferry ) which was super..3 hours cruise !

We were referred to this wonderful place by a friend and I wanted to stay there during my family trip to Kerala.Right from day one when we landed at this place,we were received cordially and made to feel at home at once.Ms.Priya (the owner),her mother and Pachu (her son) were very well mannered and excellent people.My kids immediately hit it off with Pachu and they made a good friend in him.Ms.Priya further helped us with our travel to Munnar and to Kumarakom.She even advised us on fares and prices so that we do not end up overspending.The dishes provided to us were authentic kerala fare that we so thoroughly enjoyed,as her mom was an excellent cook.I would suggest this place to stay for all people inyending to visit kerala.My kids and wife keep perstering me to plan another trip to this place which is another home away from home.All our best wishes to Ms.Priya & her family! Thank you again!

Room Tip: All rooms are good
