          Xavier has been a great host, very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed the location too, as we could get onto small canals, riding canoes, straight from the property, while being far away from touristy pockets. Overall recommended to anyone, from couples to groups of friends

          Very relaxing and quiet after touring around Cochin. On the river, great food and off the tourist route. Make sure to take advantage of the 2 hour boat ride through the canals. One night was not enough time to enjoy the beauty of the area.
