This is the first time I've ever thought to make a review on tripadvisor, but some experiences just need to be shared.
When I got to Ashtamudi, Subhash (The owner) said to me, drop your bags, freshen up and make yourself at home. The same feeling I would expect to find when I stay at my uncles place.
Its not just called a Homestay, it really felt like a home. The owners will go out of their way for you. One day there was a rickshaw strike and Subhash himself drove guests around on his scooter. Literally going the extra mile for guests.
As for the rooms, its an extraordinary experience, and at night, if you sit upstairs, you get the feeling that you're actually in a houseboat thats docked beside a few palm trees!
