We spend there only one night but it was a great experience. The room is very big and clean. The bed is comfortable, the place is beautiful. Unni and his parents are very kind and nice people. Moreover, the mum was providing us with the best food we have tasted in Kerala. Amazing homestay!
Warm welcome - difficult to find but they are putting signage up.
Clean new room with 2 fans- remember to bring hand wash soap, shower gel and toilet paper.
Very kind helpful family in non tourist place - can borrow 2 bikes and definately go on canoe trip with Dad.
Food plentiful and nicely presented not enough spice for up but great for vegetarians
Good value for money
We stayed at Munroe Coconut Homestay after hearing about how beautiful the area was. We were so happy to arrive and hear all the rumours were true. Munroe Island is an incredibly beautiful place, with peaceful backwaters and gorgeous views along the lake edge. The host family at the homestay were incredibly kind and helpful, with the son Unni giving us lots of information about where to go on nice walks, and lending us bikes to explore on. We also went on a sunrise canoe tour with him and it was incredible, definitely one of the highlights of our time in Kerala. It was made even better by Unni explaining about the birds and plants around us. We also had breakfast and dinner twice at the homestay, which was all absolutely delicious - definitely some of the best authentic Keralan food we have eaten, it was plentiful and was at a very good price. The room was lovely - with very comfortable beds and a nice clean bathroom. Overall, I would definitely recommend a few nights here to explore the beauty of Munroe Island.
The room was big, clean and just perfect! The breakfast and dinner was amazing! We wanted vegan food, which was no problem. It was important for the mother, Vimala, that we were satisfied and happy with the food. One of the best things with our stay at Coconut was the kindness from the family. They really made our days the best.
Myself and two friends enjoyed a comfortable stay, sharing one good size room.
Unnis mother is an incredible chef, each meal a unique and delicious experience - at a very affordable price.
Rahul/Unni was the perfect host! Our canoe trip with was great, he took the time to point out plants, landmarks and birds to us. He also took us to a wedding! Such an amazing experience.
