This was our first homestay and hence there were lot of doubts in our mind until the day we arrived in Alleppey. Right from our first interaction with Mr. Sasi who owns this homestay he was friendly & helpful until we departed from Alleppey. The facility is a renovated ancestral property carrying more than 150 years of heritage. One could...

The interesting thing about staying at Pappastays is that Sasi can fix you up with trips and experiences unknown to many other large tour operators. His large network of neighbors and friends enabled me, on my most recent trip to: * Go fishing with a local using a hand made canoe, hand made pole rods, and small throw nets. The...

A second visit to Pappastays in the lovely backwaters village of Mannancherry. Perfectly situated very near to Alleppy, but far enough away to give a true cultural experience of village life in Kerala. Pappastays is close to Marari Beach which is beautifully unspoiled and peaceful. Lovely Keralan food is provided as well as expert day trip planning. Enjoyed outings to...
