I was roaming around in a rickshaw until I spotted this place and randomly walked in to ask if rooms were available. I'm so glad I did. The rooms are well priced and very clean and tidy. Judie is an amazing host and I had a great time at the homestay. I asked her whether she cooked her own food...

Stayed here in March 2016. The room was large and spotlessy clean with good quality furnishings, nice fluffy towels and good aircon. The lady of the house was very friendly and booked us a taxi the next day with her son to Alleppey. I think it was more expensive than it should have been, and we could probably have found...
