We found Motty's homestay in the Alastair Sawday's book and we were not disappointed. If you are after a warm welcome, an experience of a Keralan home with Keralan hospitality and some excellent Keralan food then look no further. We went with our 12 year old daughter and Motty and Lali were impecable hosts and included her in conversations and cookery classes. The house is full of wonderful Indian antique furniture and we felt very much at home. For a different experience away from hotels you could not find anything better. Above 5*! we will go back.

  • Liked — sleeping in an antique bed, private bathroom, the whole ancient wood appeal of the furniture and verandah
  • Disliked — The pillow and mattress - this is the same thoughout my travels in India so far

We have recently returned from a fabulous two weeks in Kerala, under the care of our host Motty. Spending 12 nights at Marari Beach Homes (which he part owns) and 2 nights at his home in Alleppy. He and his wife Lali (a wonderful cook) are so welcoming, and nothing is too much trouble to organise trips etc. The house is situated in the centre of this charming town, which definately hasn't been hit yet by the big tourist trade. Motty is a collector, and takes great pride in his home and possessions.

Our room was lovely, with this huge Indian bed, which you had to take a running leap at to get in !!!! steps provided really.

Don't expect TVs, trouser presses or jacuzzi, just good old fashioned Indian hospitality with a couple who really do enjoy having you in their home.
