Beautiful setting in the middle of the wonderful backwaters of Kerala. We had two cottages right on the edge of the backwater. We were welcomed by extremely friendly helpful people and provided with a good simple meal on arrival. Our host was fantastic - organising a wonderful early morning trip through the backwaters. There were kayaks available for exploring the...

We loved our four nights here and so did our four year old. A really beautiful family to spend time with. Great cooking, and Jossy Thomas has a wealth of information about the area and you can ask him anything, his English is excellent. We felt like part of the family. The rooms were clean, and equipped with what we...

Jossy the host is very accommodating and arranged my outings. The sunrise boat trip was fantastic. The food was very good. The room was average and needs more attention (cobwebs, broken mosquito net, AC, bath fixtures). I liked the veranda and quiet time at Kaits.

A beautiful location with cottages on the river, swing seats and a gazebo out on the water where we took our meals. The rooms could do with some maintenance for the price but we had a lovely outdoor bathroom and porch. The meals were plentiful and delicious. The family did everything to make us comfortable and we got to take...

Owner Josy made us feel welcome, we're very friendly and helpful and served delicious home meals. Such tranquillity. Beautiful place. Basic clean rooms. We could use their canoes to see the narrow canals for ourselves.

We arrived at Kaits upon recommendation of the previous homestay. The place has seen better days and could do with a little bit of renovation, but altogether the magic atmosphere of the Back Waters and the friendliness and kindness of Jossey and his family make you forget some of the small setbacks. The food is very good and it is...

We moved to Kait's at short notice when somewhere else didn't work out and it couldn't have been a warmer welcome. Beautiful attentive hosting from Jossy and his delightful family, welcome drinks, tea or lime soda whenever you wanted it, unlimited use of some kayaks and a traditional dug-out canoe on the exquisitely beautiful river that drifts past the property....

My wife and I (Canadians, in our 60s) spent several days here in January 2017, and we couldn't be happier with your stay. Our room was clean, and the grounds were safe and quiet (imagine that, in India!). Highlights: - Our hosts treated us like royalty, from the time they welcomed us in person to the time they waved goodbye...

We enjoyed our 3 night stay here, prior to taking a houseboat for 1 night. The set up here is several simple cottages, surrounding the main family home, all backing onto a pretty part of the backwaters with a lovely pagoda over the water for sitting or dining. The rooms were well equipped and comfy, the food was good (breakfast...
