Me and my friends visited Marari Dreamz Homestay in August 2022. Wow what a place we arrived there with little sleep from our train journey of 12 hours from Goa. When we arrived at Allwyn and Jency's we were straight away welcomed in and made to feel at home, this was much appreciated after our long train journey. They let us relax in the common area until are room was ready, once ready Allwyn showed us to our room which was beautifully presented and very clean and welcoming. The bathroom was stunning 😍. We relaxed for a little then got straight in the pool and what a amazing place that is beautiful surrounded by plants and with some lovely music playing in the background all so chilled and magical. Whilst there both Allwyn and Jency were super lovely and their staff were

I stayed in Marari Dreamz with my family for 4 nights in August 2022. We visit kerala yearly once to worship our native temple and stayed only in resorts in different parts of kerala. This is our first time to Mararikulam. We booked the Sky retreat villa with the shared pool as that was the only Villa available when we booked . The place was very well maintained , full of greenery ,cozy and refreshing. The host Allwyn was very friendly and took care of all our requirements. The main highlight of this place is the Jency’s scrumptious home cooked meal. Since we are pure vegetarian, she took extra care each and every time and made our stay very comfortable right from day 1. My children loved her food and Jency was so sweet to share her recipes too. Shangu, the dog and karumbi,

Stayed at Marari Dreamz for two nights in August 2022. We love Kerela and have been travelling there at least once every year for several years now. We are amazed every time, and this was no different. Mararikulam is a quiet sleepy town which has several expansive 5 star properties and many home stays. We chose Marari Dreamz based on the reviews, and can confidently say that they aren't overrated. Allwyn is a plesant young man who is knowledgable and helpful, and the face of this homestay. Jency is his every smiling Missus who is the back bone of the enterprise. We had the Red Stone Villa, the one with the private swimming pool. The room is comfortable in all respects, and the open air bathroom is a gem. We were there during the mosquito season and had to use mosquito

This was our second visit to Marari Dreamz and it was even better than the last time. Allwyn and Jency are wonderful hosts. The best part of the stay is dinner time because Jency is an exceptional cook. You won’t get this food in any hotel! True Kerala fare as it is cooked in homes. The new pools are an added bonus. We enjoyed hanging out in the private garden by the pool. My parents also loved the peace and quiet. The beach is only a short walk away. Be aware that there are pets on the property so if you don’t like dogs or are scared of them, this may not be the place for you. However, the dogs are very well behaved, especially little Shanku.

This place was recommended as a great weekend getaway by a friend. Allwyn spoke to me to understand what I was looking for and he understood our requirements and suggested a arrangement that would work best for us. Allwyn made us feel comfortable to communicate any of our requirements or clarifications before we booked the place. The booking process was simple and easy. I was impressed by the efforts they are taking to keep the place sustainable and eco-friendly. As we checked in Allwyn took the time to explain everything about the place and activities we could do there. The place felt like home with so many dogs around that were rescued by this beautiful couple Allwyn and Jency. They had to keep the dogs bound for sometime when they had guests who were not comfortable with

Since the pandemic has subsided, everyone wants to release themselves from their cocoon and set out for a short vacation. So what better way to have a vacation than a home away from home. The homestay I'm talking about is my best friend, sister in law and myself went on a girls only trip to this place. Allywn and Jency were so welcoming that they felt like family immediately. We felt so safe in their presence that we felt comfortable to wear anything and be ourselves. Now let me talk about my favourite part the food. Jency is blessed with " Kaipunyam " (Blessed hands in Malayalam), it literally means whatever she made was absolutely yummy. I am carnivore like most Keralites, but because of her delicious cooking I ate more of the vegetarian dishes than the non. We stayed in a

We booked a private pool villa at Dreamz homestay for our wedding anniversary. We came across this place on internet and we chose Dreamz homestay based on the review and are glad that we did. We had a very calm and pleasant 2 nights stay there. Hosts, Allwyn and Jency were very hospitable and felt like home away from home.
