We spend 5 days in Achayans Homestay and really enjoy this time. Homestay is located at beach village Mararikulam in Aleppey district.The beautiful and not crowded Marari beach is just 15 minutes nice walk from home.The hosts were really friendly and helpful (they arranged kayaks and Tuk-Tuk for us when we needed transport to Kochin). What is more they also gave us detailed and helpful information about local buses, bus to Munnar (Jimmy wrote us names of bus stops in Malayam to show to driver). We felt that we can relay on their advices. We loved Kitchen of Greeta! She made for us every morning different Indian breakfast. :) Also every dinner was always a delicious suprise! Every meal was tasty adventure. Room was clean and spacy (we booked room in cottage house). To resume i would recommend this place for everyone who likes people, good kitchen and good relax on beach.

Dear Agnez, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a beautiful review. While tripadvisor places stars next to our business, you are our real star. Most people don't bother to leave reviews about positive experiences unincentivezed, and that's what makes you the star. It's only when we recieve such positive feedback, do we rest knowing that we have done our jobs well. Thank you for giving us this proverbial pat on the back, you made our day! We will strive to deliver great experiences consistently, please do come again.We always loved to welcome the people like you who clearly understand the homestay experience unlike hotels. Thanks & Regards Jimmy & Family Host

Nice rooms, great food and about 15 minutes to beautiful, peacful and crowdless beach. That was our best homestay in India. We liked it so much that we decided to come back for our 2 last days in Kerala. Jimmy, Greeta and Emil are lovely people with great attitude to guests, full of natural kindness. We had many very interesting conversations and we received more help than we had even expected. All that made this stay more like couchsurfing experience than a normal hotel-guest relation. And last but not least, Greeta's breakfasts and dinners were really stunning and every day different :)

I somehow got lucky to select this homestay near to the lovely Marari beach. At a very reasonable rate I got to stay in a spacious room on a big tropical compound all meals inciuded. The place is run by Greeta, a great cook, Jimmy the quiet organiser and Emil for any odd support. All in all a perfect place to relax and be treated to the joys of life: great food, peaceful setting and plenty sun, sand and sea. Thank you for your hospitaity and I will surely return.

Took a chance on coming here after a poor previous experience. Came for two nights and stayed for eight. (And we are returning in a few weeks time.) There is nothing to fault. Very clean, relaxing, comfortable, friendly and Greeta's food is exceptional. 'A cacophony of taste sensation' Jimmy is so funny. Oh, and what an artist!! Emil, their son is always very friendly and helpful. Can not fault this home from home and thoroughly recommend. 5☆.

I was looking for a place to relax and I found this lovely place. Jimmy and Greeta are really great hosts. They have more variety of bedrooms to stay in. The beach is just 5 min of walk. I was so looking forward to Greeta's jummy breakfast every day. She did even make me a triple coffee. I definitely recommend this home stay.
