“Arrive as Clients - Depart as Friends”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Pappa Stays offers an authentic homestay in heritage buildings right on the backwaters of Kerala.

The setting is serene, the welcome, hospitality and meals are outstanding. We spent 5 nights - we wished it had been many more. Sasi and Geetha were available for anything we needed. Sasi arranged interesting outings for us including Aryuvedic treatments, boat trips on the backwater canals and lakes, beaches, temples, shopping - we felt truly cared for. Geetha is an incredible cook offering vegetarian and non-vegetarian true South Indian food.

The location is private, yet within a very short walk of Mannanncherry which has everything you could need. At Pappa Stays you will be immersed in the Keralan lifestyle - you will have a real cultural experience.

You will not find more welcoming hosts - we completely enjoyed the our stay. We would be happy to answer any questions.
