Marari dreamz is a small home stay located at the sea shore of Marari beach which is run by a local couple named, Allwyn and Jency who got travelling experience outside India as well as speaks English, Italian and Hindi. Marari dreamz has got four Luxury cottages, each having one air conditioned ensuite double bed rooms fitted with an open sit out which makes you feels like heaven. One cottage has got a private swimming pool and the other three shares one common pool. You can walk or bicycle (free bikes provided )east in to the village to enjoy the stunning traditional temples surrounded by green paddy fields and huge trees. One can live along with the calm and quit villagers who earn their living from sea. You can explore the village customs and tradition, swim in brackish waters, and attend daily morning yoga classes. In spite of all, you are blessed with an experienced Ayurveda family in our neighborhood where you can experience the real Kerala Ayurveda treatments. Your welcome drink is given by our chef Jency, who can handle all Indian traditional dishes and all modern dishes as per your request in cheap prices. You can enjoy making sand castles, or go for the backwater cruise nearby, and also do check out the coir making units. Precisely saying there is everything here to keep you entertained and engaged.

Really enjoyed our recent four night stay in the Sky room at Marari Dreamz. Huge bedroom and balcony, all very clean. Allwyn and Jency were great hosts, really kind and helpful, and Jency’s food was amazing. We loved exploring the quiet local roads with the free bikes. Everyone was so friendly. The pool was lovely after a days sightseeing, however the mats on the sun beds could possibly do with being renewed. The beach is ok with a few sun loungers and beach cafes, however it shelves deeply and the waves are quite large. It was great for watching the morning fishermen though, and generally enjoying the sea breeze. We thought it was a good spot for soaking up rural life by the beach but also within easy reach of Alleppey. We would love to return one day.

We stayed for a week at this quiet home-stay in Marari, by far one of the best holiday choices we have made, a calm and peaceful spot with a pool, we were looked after so well by the owners Allwyn and Jency, well mainly Jency, the food she cooks is amazing and different every night, a short walk from the lovely beach and well placed for tours, we also used the free bikes to get to the offey as they are not licenced and the fish market. we wish them good luck and will be returning.

We loved our final two days in Kerala in the beautiful Marari Dreamz home stay. Allwyn was so hospitable and Jency cooked the best food we had all holiday. Our stay in the Red Stone villa was so pretty with a lovely shady garden, a private pool and plenty of sitting areas. The bicycles provided gave us a great way to explore the town and beach. Allwyn showed us plenty of sight seeing suggestions but we were happy to completely relax in the beautiful surroundings of Marari Dreamz.

Well, everyone else has mentioned the food (which is superb), the hospitality (second to none), how well equipped the place is and what a great location it's in. Oh and it's also very reasonably priced. Allwyn and Jency work incredibly hard to make sure their guests have a great time and are really engaging hosts. They had some great recommendations for things to do while here including an excellent backwater tour, ayurvedic massage and (a real highlight) the trip to the local liquor store. They're in the process of setting up a second location nearby which looks very impressive if you can't get in here. Great people with a fantastic place.

I felt at home the moment I stepped in to Marari Dreamz Homestay. I stayed there as a solo traveller for three nights and it was without a doubt the absolute highlight of my trip. If you're looking for an authentic stay with interesting, kind and funny people in beautiful surroundings with delicious food - this is your place. Allwyn and Jency made me feel so comfortable from day one and helped organize at wonderful canoe trip on the backwaters and offered cooking classes and yoga lessons too. Jency cooked amazing food every morning and dinner - best food I've had in India! - and offered to send me the recipes. The rooms were spotless with pools and beach nearby. Marari Dreamz Homestay is the kind of place that stays with you and will make your trip very special, thanks to Allwyn
