We went to India/Kerala for 2 weeks and a lot on Tripadvisor was advised to visit like the back waters and Kovalam... Believe me. Skip all of that. This place is the best time we had during our stay in India. If you want to get away from the bustling cities and crowds than got to Mathew's place. We stayed here for 4 nights but we could have spend a lot more days here. Mathew is the man made for this job of running a homestay / guesthouse. Actually, job is a wrong word while you don't even notice that this is his work. It's like you are visiting a good friend. I loved the conversations we had and the trips around the area.
If you like beaches, bars/pubs, shopping or historical sightseeings... You will not find it here. search somewhere else. But if you love nature, beautiful sightseeings, serinity with a personal touch, experience the local culture and the friendly locals and really have a relaxed holiday or want to get away from the bustling cities: I would definitely recommend this place! Learn Yoga, go trekking (Periyar Tiger Reserve is worth a visit), visit the tea plantages, walk into the small towns and meet the locals on the markets, or just sit down in the garden and read a book. What else do you want in life :-)More
