Everything we had read in the reviews, which made us choose to stay at Bella was true. The fresh fruit juices that Biju whips up are unbelievable. Natasha is a wonderful host, and Jack is adorable. The house is beautiful, with Natasha's personal touch in decorating adding a special charm to the house. The house is spotlessly clean too. It... More

Natasha and Biju welcomed us as friends, and provided helpful assistance when we needed it. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, but still close to everything, Bella homestay is quiet and relaxing The rooms are clean and nicely decorated, and the breakfasts are very good.

Highly recommended. We had a great experience. Jack the pug is a rockstar. Biju and Natasha are very friendly and helpful. Biju's fresh fruit juices are incredible. There is a choice between Kerala cuisine and standard eggs/toast etc. The rooms are comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. No TV. And that's a good thing. The house is surrounded by greenery.

The bedroom was very clean . Quality sheets which were lovely compared to other places I stayed. Owners are very helpful and let you use the Internet to book onward plans. My only reservation would be don't go with their recommendation for an overnight backwaters boat. The boat was not clean. Overall I would recommend here to friends.

Bella home stay is a beautiful, pretty, comfortable home stay. The area is quiet and secluded from the loud streets yet they are only a few 100 meters away. The rooms are quiet and nicely decorated. The beds are homely and so is the service of the owners. We were greeted by a funny looking pug who made us feel... More

Loved the hidden location but close to all you need comfortable rooms and wonders hosts. Love the breakfasts and also the yummy juices. They got us a great deal on the boats and i wish i could have stayed longer. Well worth it.
