Homestays have become increasingly popular in Kerala and for a good reason. They provide very good accommodation at affordable prices. We were trying to book another homestay closeby but due to unavailability this place was suggested to us by the owner. We were pleasantly surprised by cleanliness and tranquil atmosphere of this place. Basic rooms but very clean. Local food including freshly caught fish is served here and you can have the unique experience of eating the local food on a banana leaf using your fingers only! It is very close to the local attractions. We really loved the whole experience.

Homestays are a wonderful window into another culture, and staying at Coconut Creek Farm and Homestay gave us the opportunity to discover village life in the beautiful backwaters of Kerala. Coconut Creek recently won Kerala's top Homestay award and deservedly so. Their three comfortable, albeit small, rooms with a/c, modern en suite bathrooms, even a TV, and spacious verandahs look out onto a large garden with a canal running down one side of the property. Meals are served either in a tiny dining room or outside under the trees, and were exceptional. Not only were we offered many of Kerala's regional dishes, they were some of the best meals we had during our month-long stay in India. Mr. Ullas Babu, our host, couldn't do enough for us; arranging a private boat trip through the channels and canals that surround Kumarakom, hiring auto-rickshaws to get us to the local bird sanctuary and encouraging us to go to the village temple festival. He was always available for a chat and we learnt a great deal about life in Kerala from him. Thank you, Mr. Babu, for making our stay with you one of the highlights of our trip.

We all enjoyed our stay at this “home stay”. The food was excellent, the staff very friendly. We also had a very nice houseboat trip arranged by the “home stay”.

We visisted Coconut Creek in Sept 2009. It was simply a magnificent stay . The property is very clean and thye food is superb. The best part was the personal supervision of the owner Mr Ullas Babu. Thanks Mr Babu for your hospitality.

Booked this as couldnt find any other options in this price rance in/near Kumarakom. This homestay apparently won the best Kerala homestay award... I've stayed at a far better one in Trivandrum, so so much for that award. The house is in a large-ish green compound however the rooms are absolutely tiny. We communicated with the servant in one word sentences and sign language however we got what we needed so cant complain too much. I do feel very strongly that it was way overpriced for whats on offer.

Landed from drenched travel via Thkkadi, by night. Was very delighted to see the place & comforts. Lucky to get booking during busy diwali festival season. Had an excellent homely typical Kerala style stay near private canal (can't believe it, veg & non-veg food, open top boat tour & of course the warm hospitality of Babu family was awesome. Truly enjoyed every moment!

Well laid out property. Complete experience of rural Kerala. They have their own small boat, which takes you through the narrow canals into the main lke. Food is authentic, freshly prepared kerala cuisine. Clean and modern bathroom. Room nice but linen could have been better. AC gave trouble. good service. Refrigerator and pantry available for guests.
