My mother and I stayed at Kaiya House for 4 nights. Kaiya house is beautifully decorated with lovely well appointed rooms and is spotlessly clean. It had a lovely roof terrace and balcony to relax on. Debra was a fantastic host who gave us a tour of the town and a talk on how to get by as a westener in India (which we found invaluable as this was our first visit). She also recommended to us a friend of hers who comes by the homestay and provides a reasonably priced massage/reflexology/shiatsu service, which we took advantage of and was great! An overall lovely stay here, we'd love to come again and our only request would be to have curtains or a blind in the room as we're not the earliest of risers.
