The backwaters are a stroll from the house, with fine walking bicycling, boating, bird watching on site. Johnny is a very knowledgable farmer, and grows many varieties of spices and...

We recently had the real privilege of staying at Ayanat House Homestay in mid-November (We were travelling with friends) It was a blissful, peaceful place, tucked away in a small village, on a river and with lush Kerala spice, fruit, coconut trees on the landscape. The rooms were spacious, and certain areas had been renovated, but very much in keeping...

I had a wonderful stay at Ayanat House. I can only describe my experience in superlatives. From the beginning when I was first greeted by Johnny and Rani, I felt that I was staying with friends.

Ayanat House is the perfect end to a holiday in Kerala. It draws together in one place all the best about South India. It is located on the lake, part of the famous backwaters.
