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.

A massive thank you to Allwyn and Jency and all the staff at Marari Dreamz for the most amazing few days. Everyone there makes you feel so welcome and looked after, the place is beautiful, big rooms and verandas, comfy beds, with the outdoor bathrooms being a really special touch.
Allwyn’s help and advice on things to do while you’re there was spot on, the canoe tour from Alleppey being a particular highlight.
Last but far from least is Jency’s food, which is nothing short of spectacular! We ate there on our first night and didn’t even consider any other restaurants after that. We ate on our balcony and were served up a wide variety of different dishes every night, some of the highlights being the fried fish, potato curry, mango curry, chicken curry and different delicious breads to mop it all up with! Just expertly prepared, perfectly spiced, amazing home cooked Keralan food! 😋
If you’re coming to Kerala, you have to make Marari Dreamz part of your trip!
Thanks again Allwyn and Jency 😊

We stayed in the lovely red stone villa. It was beautiful, has its own private pool, open air bathroom..
Allwyn and Jencey were amazing hosts, nothing was too much for them ..
Lovely authentic kerala breakfast, cooked by Jencey and served by the lovely Binal, a really lovely guy.
They will even do your main meal in the evening for a small cost, and very delicious it was too 😋

They have five dogs and they are all lovely...
They will even help you to arrange trips, and another plus is.... the beach is only 5 minutes walk,
They even took us out for a meal the evening before we left... Allwyn's driving is exceptional 👌 🤣
I would absolutely give this place five stars.
Thank you for a lovely stay both of you.
We Hope to return in the future.
Julie & Chris

We stayed at Marari Dreamz for 3 nights. All the reviews about the food served are 100% accurate..fabulous. There are 2 pools one for all and a lucky couple gets their private one. Each cottage makes you feels you are in your own private oasis. Bicycles are available for guests. The neighborhood is safe for bicycling considering Indian traffic. The beach is a short walk across the road and a 4 minute walk after that. I could not partake in the beach due to bad leg. If not wanting to eat in restaurants are only a very short tuk tuk ride. Absolutely recommend this place.

We had an absolutely perfect stay here. It was a great place to relax and refuel. Allwyn and Jency are great hosts and they’ve worked hard to create a little oasis here. Special mention goes to Jency’s delicious, authentic cooking which was seriously among the best we tasted in Kerala. There’s not a lot of other eating options around so we were only too happy to have dinner there each night. You won’t go hungry. They have a bunch of very friendly dogs whose company we enjoyed, and the staff were all very nice. There’s bikes to use to explore the village roads around, there’s a local bus into Alleppey, Marari Beach is a few minutes walk away and we cycled to the jetty (about 40 mins) to get the ferry over to Kumakarum. We stayed five nights in Cashew Villa which - if it’s available- you should definitely book. Private pool. Open air shower. Little garden. Birdsong. Loungers. Hammock. Hanging chair. Bean bags. It’s got the lot. It really felt like a mini holiday within our three week trip. Highly recommended. Thank you Allwyn and Jenny. 🙏

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, the cat are added attraction to this place. We had a wonderful time at the home stay and would definitely recommend to my friends and family . Thankyou Allwyn and Jency for making our stay memorable.

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.

Marari Dreamz is a perfect oasis in Kerala - a lovely blend of family 'Homestay' and high class service - the accommodation is ideal within lush tropical setting with carefully maintained pools for a cool dip when you get too hot. Allwyn, Jency and the team are relaxed, friendly and attentive. The food is freshly prepared, varied and beautifully cooked. Their super-friendly dogs add to the family homestay atmosphere. We used the bikes ever day to explore the village lanes, morning fish market & peddling to the village shops. We walked to the deserted beach and swam in the warm sea. Allwyn couldn't do enough to make our stay in Kerala run smoothly.

We booked in three nights and ended up staying for twelve!

Each year I come to Kerala to take an Ayurvedic Cleanse in the hills after which I travel down to the beach and relax before heading home. This year I once again stayed at the wonderful Marari Dreamz. Allwyn and Jency have undertaken renovations since last year, including new rooms, another pool and a rooftop retreat. All done tastefully without loosing any of the homely vibes and tranquility. Everyone working here is lovely. Allwyn is the perfect host and Jency is a fabulous cook. I have already booked for next year! Thank you for having me. x

We have just returned from a 2 week stay with Allwyn, Jensy and their team of excellent staff . This is a home stay but with the feel of five star service.
Marari Dreamz is in a good location, situated on a quiet lane and just a short walk to the beach. There are also bicycles you can use if you want to explore the local area whilst you are here.
Allwyn was a star ,able to organise day trips out and about to various places of interest, we didn't have to lift a finger during the whole holiday he was there for us . As first timers to India this was much appreciated.!
Thank you Alwyn for allowing me to join the morning yoga session .....I will work on the head stand!!
The main attraction for Maria Dreamz is Jency cooking , I don't have words to describe , but to repeat what others have said it was amazing we ate in house every night and where never disappointed .
Would I stay here again? Definitely
