We staying here for 2 nights on our Kerala tour. Bhags was a great host and made us feel very welcome. We ate both lunch and dinner on the veranda, and the food was simple but lovely, served by charming staff. Bhags does so much in the community, and is helping to make sure the traditions are being kept up....

Staying at Kandarth Tharavad remains one of the highlights of our journey through Southern India. Bhags was a most wonderful host and welcomed us into his beautiful, historic home with warmth and enthusiasm. The food was delicious and served on a pretty verandah by the garden. We loved walking through the rice paddies in the evening meeting local children and...

Staying with Bags for one night only was a truly unique experience. The house is situated a rural location where you don't here anything louder than the birds. Bags himself is utterly charming and spend the evening with us explaining how he came to be back in his ancestral home. His restoration of the building enabled us to experience what...

This is a wonderful place to stay. The building is stunning and the host charming and attentive. Note there is lots to do in Palakkad, so ask, don't just go by the guide books. We visited the fort and did some shopping, but there is a temple elephant stable which sounded most interesting. This is a good location to start...

When going into the house, you feel like entering a small palace with a lot of history. The photos on the walls show a lot of celebrations and weddings of the family. Our room was small and very dark, with covered windows, and just a pale lamp at the ceiling. Even as there a lot of mosquitos, there is no...

We arrived here after several days journeying in busy locales. We loved exploring the grounds and surrounding villages. We can't count the number of bird species we've seen in just two days. The food was great and the host is very friendly. The property is like museums we've explored in neighboring cities.

One of the most extraordinary places I've ever been to in India, and I've come here many times since 1973. The main thing is how Bags makes sure that his business benefits the community. There is a village nearby, and the villagers love to wave and smile at people passing through who they can see are staying at Kandath Tharavad....

We were met by the owner and his dog Dodger, he also has 3 other dogs, just a note of caution as some people dislike dogs. Food is prepared by a local woman, the property is in a small village, area would be good for walking, unfortunately we were only there over night and not enough time to explore. The...

Very friendly host. This homestay is a 250 year old Indian house which belongs to the family who run it today. For a different, non touristic experience I would recommend this. Or just for a overnight stay when you travel from Mudumalai to Kochi.

The first thing I want to start with, is to say what a nice man Bagsy is, it is hard to critisize such a kind host who takes out the time as he does to spend with you as his guest and to open the doors to his home and life and let you in. As a female traveller I...
