Stayed here for 7 nights. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, a good sized bedroom and bathroom with tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Could not fault it. Superb family homestay, they were very friendly and will do anything to help you. The home cooked food here is amazing and excellent value. Had the odd beer if we wanted one. Couldn't fault it, best value for money of anywhere we have stayed in India. Beautiful uncrowded beach approx 10 minutes walk away.
A great place to stay, Umapahati is the owner and does everything he can to accommodate without personal gain. He even got 500 repee discount on our house boat trip. His wife is wonderful and cooks great Keralan food (but make sure you ask for spice otherwise you will have very insipid fayre). It's on the road, but peaceful, so 300 metres to the beach so a glass of wine watching the sun set on the beach then back for great food, wonderful ambiance and peaceful sleep. Thank you
This was a lovely homestay. I have travelled extensively through India and can honestly say it is one of the best I have stayed at. The owner and family were so caring and kind, the room was clean and beautiful. The garden is peaceful, and the home stay is located a short walk from the beach. I can’t say enough good things about this stay. We happened to unknowingly visit during a strike and everything was closed, the owner went out of his way to cook lunch for us ensuring that we didn’t go hungry. The food was some of the best I’ve had in Kerala. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable stay.
Really nice and quite place to stay. The family is very welcoming and smiling. Took pefrect care of us, the food is excellent, Internet is quick and the AC is real beast :) Beach is really close to the house, its clean and quite, with very few people. Totally recommended!
The family that run this are great hosts and go out of their way to look after you. Mr Umapathy even took us to the fish market on the beach this morning to show us round. In the afternoon he took us over to get a boat trip (I was sceptical but worth doing - a boat to yourself for £12 for 2hrs). He charged us very little for 4.5hrs of his time. Back to the homestay.. The room is clean (with air-con!) and a spacious en suite bathroom. They serve breakfast and dinner on your patio and it’s delicious Kerala food. (Vegetarian or they offered fish also.) I took my own beer and they even chilled that for me. The beach is 10mins walk, you can hire sun beds & umbrellas there for not a lot.
