Friendly hosts in Baby Matthew and his wife, who speak excellent English, staff young, fun and helpful, location tranquil. House immaculate and tents very comfortable - food home cooked and delicious. If your travelling round Kerala don't miss stopping here as homestay don't get any better than this!

One measure of the caring nature of...

Everything is spotless. Mathew (the current owner) and his family...
