Owner Mr Babu is very friendly & helpful. The room was very small but clean & perfectly acceptable. The house & grounds are lovely & surrounded by canals.There is a verandah with seats & a swing & its lovely, quiet & peaceful out there. We had evening meals each evening & the cook Lal is excellent & nothing too much trouble. Excellent value & a great experience of real India.

Coconut Creek was a wonderful experience even though we were there just for a day. My daughter enjoyed the garden with a swing, hammock and a small bridge over the canal. The hosts were very gracious,friendly and courteous. The rooms were clean and neat and just the right size for us ( a family of 3). The food was the best and the land lady herself cooks most of the items. Since I was a vegetarian she had made a jack fruit dry fry and it was so thoughtful. The breakfast, lunch and dinner were authentic Kerala style food and we also enjoyed tea and snack outdoors.I requested for a Kerala style plantain fry and it was hot, crunchy and fresh. We also enjoyed coconut water right from the farm. I definitely recommend this for families, couples or individuals looking for an affordable, quiet, peaceful and homely atmosphere.

The setting is perfect for a backwater retreat. It looks like the owner built a new wing that has air conditioned rooms rooms that are small and cramped. This would have been OK if the A/C worked. It went out after an hour and we had to rely upon the ceiling fan. We paid extra for the A/C and it would have been nice if we would have receive a credit. The WiFi only worked in a few rooms. Everything else was find and we enjoyed both the dinner and breakfast.

Room Tip: There is no pool or fitness center

Huge property spread across 4 acres. Mr Babu the owner is a hands own owner and has mainained a spotless property. The property has lot of open space for kids with swings and hammock. the wooden swing in the verandah is the perfect place to enjoy one's morning cup of tea. Now for the best part, the food. We had all our meals at the home stay and everything cooked by Mrs Babu was lip smackingly delicious. Authentic homely kerela food, served with care. They even arranged for my taxi an houseboat trip which made our vacation a comfortable one.

Overall, it is a good place to stay if your expectations are toned down. There are much better hotels in kumarakom, but they cost a lot more too. The host was nice and welcoming, the food was tasty. The rooms felt a bit cramped and the view could get to you if you stay more than 2 days here. It is all about the backwaters and rivers. In this part of the world, there is nothing more. We took the motor boat instead of staying in the houseboat as we were informed that the houseboats would be anchored by 6 in the evening and then we'd become sitting ducks for the mosquitos. Don't forget to take your mosquito repellants with you, the nets don't do much good. Do carry Indian money as you'll be required to pay for any additional purchases and the closest bank to change money is quite a drive away. A good option for a reasonably priced stay for 2 nights.

During my last holiday trip to kerala, i wanted a quite/relaxing stay at kumarakom, and read reviews of 'Coconut Creek Farm' and got very impressed and decided to give it a shot........and in one sentence i would say that it was not only a very nice stay but also a relaxing experience. Very nicely maintained room (awesome bathroom with bathing cabinet), room has two gates, front gate opens to garden and back side gate opens towards nicely maintained kitchen and dining hall. As far as food is concerned, they do not have very large menu to offer, they have few options of 'Kerala' preparations, but food quality and taste wise they met our expectations. Since we had a small kid with us, hence we needed to use they kitchen for milk and bottles boiling, which they let us do happily. This Homestay is built is very large area in corner plot location and very nicely maintained garden with swings, you can really enjoy your leisure time with your family and feel like home.
