“Nice n comfortable”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We stayed in the homestay for a day(17th to 18th october), as per the reviews a good place to stay and unwind in this nice village, food is really nice and the staff is nice and courteous and there is ofcourse a personal touch, just 2 recommendations for improvement 1. the money charged for the food could have been lesser as its a homestay and its houldn't be as of a 4 star hotel. 2. the houseboat booked for evening could have been better.

Regarding houseboat your total booking was through makemytrip.com with 100% payment on arrival.So after arriving you have booked houseboat.It was dasara holidays week and all the luxury houseboat had already booked.So with your interest we had offered you deluxe houseboat with budget pricing for evening cruise.So with budget price we are able to offer you only deluxe category houseboat.

We are hearty welcome back you and your family to kumarakom & coconut creek budget hotel .

My sister had visited Coconut Creek recently and had great things to stay about this place. We did the same in January and we were not surprised either. The service that we experienced had a personal touch to it. We had arranged a houseboat ride (11 am - 4pm) and we reached the resort later in the evening. We received a warm welcome from Mr.Babu and his family. The traditional food that was served for dinner was exemplary. The environment was well maintained and the rooms were very neat and economical. The location was very convenient in terms of access. We had a great time and it was definitely a home away from home experience. Strongly recommended for others if you plan to visit Kumarakom and wish for a homestay.

We went with our entire family: a family of 9 members and had a great time at this place. It was a great service through-out. Mr. Babu was an excellent host and took care of every needs. Food is also excellent at the place and if you are a tea or coffee fan, you get it whenever you need. Basically you are living with a host whose sole purpose is to take a great care of yours. Rooms were all right for the kind of money that we were paying. The only thing that could have improved is the quality of house-boats that we booked through the resort.

This homestay is good if you looking for a reasonable budget stay. The rooms are clean and spacious for 2 people, however you could be swarmed by mosquitoes in the evenings.
While we were there, the water flow in the shower was quite poor and taking a bath was a task y itself! the washroom needs to be better maintained.

It is a 30minute walk to the town's center and you could take a rickshaw to get there.

There are many hotels close y where you could walk in for lunch and dinner, as the food at Coconut Creek can be given a miss.

Unfortunately the owner was not available until our departure due to a family emergency.
His replacement, while pleasant, had very little English which left us with little information about the property or surrounding attactions. Wifi, which would have helped for tourist information, was supposed to be available but we could not connect or resolve due to the language barrier. Possibly the modem needed resetting after the frequent power cuts.

The gardens and terrace were lovely, food nice, rooms average and bathrooms functional but could do with updating. Good value though for the budget price.

We also stayed in Alleppey which we preferred over Kumarakom for more things to see and more interesting surrounding canals.

Stayed for 3 nights

What's good : the place looks exactly like the pictures, great grounds, clean environment , awesome home cooked traditional kerela food, peaceful environment , exactly what you need if live and work into metro .. will not forget the motor boat ride thru the canals, would prefer and recommend more than the houseboat, good value for money, do take the recommended kerela traditional massage - overall very good hospitality

What' not : Kumarakom has only canals and lake for sightseeing.. don't expect anything more..... room size is small compared to your average hotel room, take plenty of books, went to kottayam - big waste of time.. shopping not worthwhile...

Room Tip: Choose the Deluxe room, facing the grounds
