“Sandhya has an amazing homestay property right next to one of the backwaters’ most beautiful rivers. Our room was large, clean and cool with a beautiful terrace area from which you can watch life pass by on the river, less than 10 metres away. Sandhya and her family are incredibly welcoming and helpful hosts (not to mention brilliant cooks). We ended up having all our meals at the property as we enjoyed the food so much. They gave us plenty of tips on walks out from the property as well as organising a couple of boat trips out into some of the smaller more secluded canals. The house is a 5 minute walk from a ferry into Alleppy and there is a paddle-ferry immediately outside the house if you want to visit the island across the river. Couldn’t recommend this property enough to anybody interested in visiting the backwaters, extremely good value and genuinely lovely hosts, on top of the beautiful landscape.”

As our reviews testify, our accommodation has the feel of a beach cottage, yet the ample luxury of beach resorts, affording you the most comfortable stay at competitive rates and suitable for a wide range of travellers from families to honeymoon couples.
“Reviews are exceptionally positive for a reason — Joanna and Nachi offer much more than a clean, comfortable abode, they offer helpful tips, connections, advice, and warm hospitality. They helped us with transportation, houseboat, and getting a general sense of what life is like in Alleppey. Their assistance was especially appreciated since our time was limited and we didn’t have the luxury to putz around town for days to discover its secrets in our own time. We were extremely grateful to have stayed with them and have met. Cannot recommend more!”

“We had a great time at David’s place ! The property: The cottages on the property have been decorated with very thoughtful touches with attention to creative detail. This applies to both the indoor and outdoor spaces that have been done up very aesthetically. There are multiple hangout spots that make up for the lack of a “living room”. The lounge pools attached to some of the cottages , the breakfast table and gazebo by the water complement the space. Activities : Quite a few interesting activities that David was able to provide for us. Tips on local areas to visit , pre arranged boat rides through the canals with pickup from the property, option to bike ride through the village , guided kayak tours were some of the choices given to us. Experience : There were so many warm fuzzies that added to this experience. Zuzu, the adopted doggie on the property , the open air shower in one of the cottages , the beautifully lit string lights that add to the evening charm , appetizers + beer with feet dipped in the pool, star gazing on the cots outside , lounging on the hammock by the water. Value: Good value for money for the food , the stay and activities. The three cottages with king beds can easily accommodate 6 or more with the cots. The host: David and his team are always at your beck and call ready to help in any which way to make sure the stay is comfortable. The communication was also excellent all along. Would stay here again for sure ! Highly recommended.”
