Ruby and Thomas are very kind people. They offer excellent home staying. Everything was perfect,the food , the house , the tours to the dam , market , forest with waterfall , visiting the school... The house is near the lake , it's so spacial and quite. We felt like part of their family. They did everything with all their heart and we felt it. Both are very worm people. Recommended staying there For two or three days minimum. We loved it..!!

We had the most amazing days stay here with owner Ruby. I would recommend to anyone and to stay for at least two days. Ruby and her husband made us very welcome in their lovely riverside home. We went to many local sights we just would not have known about on our own and into town. And topped off with tasty home cooked food.

We were two couples who stayed with Ruby and Thomas for 3 nights. We enjoyed great hospitality from this lovely welcoming couple. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped with a/c and hot water, our meals very interesting Keralan cooking but tailored to our request s ( with a cooking demonstration). We were taken on several interesting excursions, including an evening visit to a local festival and we very much enjoyed swimming in the beautiful river which provides lovely views from the house and is accessible from the garden. Everything was included in the cost , including the visits by car and even the excellent laundry. Best of all was the genuine friendship and companionship we received. A great place to feel part of India and the friendliness of Kerala. Richard Jill Charles and Brenda

Ruby and Thomas are lovely hosts. We felt truly comfortable as if we were members of their family. They entertained us by showing us a local rubber/pineapple plantation, shared cultural customs, and engaged me in a stitch project. We laughed a lot as we worked together. This was exactly the experience I had expected at an Agritourisimo in Italy (last year) however did not have there. Here, you will have wonderful memories of Tabernacle Homestay.

We spent a month touring India and our stay with Ruby and Thomas at the Tabernacle Homestay was one of the real highlights for us. Ruby and Thomas were incredibly kind and hospitable. They immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable. Our trips out with Thomas were really interesting and gave us a chance to see life in Kerala away from the tourist crowds. The home cooked food was amazing and it was great to spend the evenings chatting with Ruby and Thomas. We only stayed a couple of nights but we left with some fantastic memories and two new friends. If you’re thinking about going to Kerala we would highly recommend staying at the Tabernacle Homestay. It’s a wonderful way of experiencing life in southern India!
