A home away from home for a pleasant and peaceful stay for those who wish to visit Kottayam/Kumarakom and Alappuzha (Alleppey). The homestay concept is offered at a very attractive rate to domestic and international tourists in a clean, eco friendly and tranquil environment. We offer mosquito free rooms and traditional Kerala food prepared with farm fresh vegetables and fruits.
Our guest accommodation is in a separate cottage of basic, mosquito free rooms adjacent to the house where we live. So our guests will get their own privacy and freedom there. All rooms have attached bathrooms with western toilets and a shower with hot and cold water. Each room has its own entrance with veranda equipped with deckchairs, teapoy and table fans, and natural garden in front with hammocks and swings. Our hospitality begins right from when the guest arrives in Kerala. Be it by bus, train or plane we personally meet our guests and escort them to our hide away retreat. Once here at our homestay we ensure the new found guests feel right at home.
