We stayed with the wonderful family at Greenpalm Homestay in January 2014 for three nights, and we could not have been more delighted. The family - Ammachi, Thomas, Matthew, Maria, Philip, and all the extended family members - are all so welcoming and warm. The property is gorgeous - three wonderfully appointed, spacious, and cool homes set right on the pretty backwaters, with lush rice-paddies and farm land at the rear. We definitely recommend taking an evening walk with Matthew around the island, with a lovely relaxing canoe ride at the end.
Communication from the family prior to our stay was clear and prompt; Philip even spoke to the taxi driver on our behalf while we were navigating our way from Kollum. The food was absolutely amazing - Ammachi's cooking was the very best south Indian food we ate. We also took a cooking class with her, which we highly recommend.
It was a wonderful, peaceful, tummy-filling stay with an absolutely wonderful family. Highly recommended.
