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 a wonderful time with ruby and Joseph. We realy felt the life of the family, eat the local food, and we had very interesting conversations with them. They took us by their car to visit the area. Their hospitality is so welcoming and they are really very nice people.

Ruby and THOMAS are wonderful, warm open minded people. Was pure pleasure staying at their typical Indian family home. We enjoyed the tasty home cooking and mostly enjoyed our long talks. What an eye opener to “real” locals. Thank you both

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
