Our Kerala Holiday
John Prescott , United Kingdom
“The homestays were highlights of our tour.We were very privileged to have the personal attention of our hosts throughout our stays in both of these distinctive and delightful homes.

They were most considerate and attentive hosts and each of them accompanied us on a fascinating and informative series of visits.”

A Wonderful Trip
Neil Haines

So we just wanted to let you know what a fantastic time we had and thank you for ensuring every thing ran so smoothly. We were thrilled with every thing we saw and every where we stayed. The character, atmosphere and quality were every thing we could have wished for. We genuinely can not pick a favourite place because we loved them all. Every one was so friendly, hospitable and generous. They were all so happy and seemed genuinely pleased to welcome us to their country and into their homes. The people we met really were the highlight of our trip and made it such a special time for us. Truly a holiday we will never forget.

Great Kerala Holiday !
Curtis & Beverly Farmer , USA

Our Kerala trip was WONDERFUL! The accommodations were great!  The food was incredible (especially at River Lodge…) The people were absolutely terrific! The managers, guides, cooks, everyone!  We fell in love with Kerala. We can’t stop talking about it.  Thank you so much for your help. We were very pleased with all of the arrangements you made for us.

Great Holdiay at the Homestays

I could wax lyrical for a long time about this trip. It was all excellent ! I think our favourites were Emerald Isle With Vinod  as number one, then the Gitanjali homestay, Ayesha Manzil...they were really special, basically because of the people, their kindness, hospitality & entertainingly good company!

All the arrangements were seamless & it was particularly lovely to lunch with Sam’s family on our first day & with Thomas’ brother Joseph on the last day. The food was stunning and we have come home a lot fatter than we left! We really enjoyed the train trips (more eating opportunities).

Apart from Vinod’s, our favourite time was in the north. I would definitely recommend travelling up here to anyone visiting Kerala, as there seemed to be few other tourists & we were received with great interest, especially by the local children!
Fantastic Homestay

Anthraper Bungalow - The most beautiful locatation on the edge of a lake with immaculate lawns and flower beds leading down to it. The hospitality was superb. Our hosts, Shantha and Matthew, were helpful and friendly and more than happy to take me in their chauffeur driven car to the bank and the shops. The meals were fantastic and the staff were delightful. Shantha and Matthew often joined us for meals and we learnt a lot about what was going on in the locality. We went on a canoe trip across the lake and visited one of the settlements where we met the residents and bought some sweets from a stall. The Bungalow is actually owned by Grandma who is bed bound but likes to meet her guests. Shantha and her sister (I'm sorry, I can't remember her name) take it in turns to act as hosts. This is where I think I may have found a house as there are 3 bungalows which are no longer in use but which they are prepared to rent out. I could have happily have stayed here longer. For future reference - Shantha says that it would have been OK for me to have gone there direct from the Airport as she doesn't mind people arriving in the wee small hours.

Fantastic Home Cooking
Helen Bailey, UK

One of the nicest rooms we stayed in throughout our month in India, fantastic home cooking, all set right on the backwaters in a coconut grove.  My partner spent the day in a hammock which our host had erected for him on the edge of the water - a truly relaxing place in a country village where we foreigners seemed to be the main attraction!
