The love spreaded by Sir Crispin and his wife Soni was unconditional. Beautiful humans. Never ever felt for a second that we were tourists but felt a part of their family. Will visit there again very soon. The real beauty and style of Kerala, all can be feel here in Kodianthara!

The place is very authentic and has a nice spirit. We have spent here 4 relaxing days. Crispin is super nice and correct. Just like his lovely wife.. The food which we got was fresh and housemade.

Kodianthara is indeed a home. Although the owners were not at home they contacted us and took care off us long distance. The house is old and quirky. With many nooks and crannies. The maid made a very tastful lunch with fresh fish and several other dishes. We took a rest in the rocking chairs on the veranda. Our bedrooms...

We completely enjoyed our time staying with Crispin and his wife Sony. They treat their guests more like family friends than clients. Their heritage home is very lovely and from it we took walks in the village and both a canoe-like boat for birdwatching in the canals and a small boat out along Lake Vembanad. We packed a lot into...

Our driver found the property after asking several locals for directions as it is tucked away well off the beaten track. The house is surrounded by palms, bananas trees and many beautiful flowering plants. The house itself has a very interesting history the owner Mr Crispin enjoyed sharing with us. We slept in the main house in a smallish room...

1. Crispin, the owner of the home is a cheat. If he realises you paid less for the room because of some online discout, he will take it from you citing food bill and etc.., 2. The rooms have huge photos of all their family lineage, which can put you off when you are trying to sleep. Imagine 10 people...
