This was the most homely and friendly homestay of my four week cycling and kayaking adventure in Kerala and Goa. The home prepared and home grown food is delicious and far more tasty than tourist hotels where the flavours can be slightly bland. As a solo traveller it was fun and interesting to chat with the family and learn about their culture and history and see the use of a hand thrown fishing net in their fish pond. I only wish I could have stayed for longer ... maybe next year!

We stayed one night at Lakes 'n Woods during a four-day kayak trip in the backwaters of Alappuzha in February 2018. The homestay location is serene. The hosts could not have been more welcoming and went to a lot of trouble to see that we were comfortable. The food provided was excellent and we spent an enjoyable evening talking about life in Kerala. Lakes 'n Woods homestay is a lovely building with extensive gardens.

The family was so warm, welcoming and generous, we really felt like we were visiting relatives. We asked to help with the cooking, so we got a personal cooking lesson. We also got a tour of the garden with lots of interesting spices and vegetables. They were perfectly accommodating with allergies and created AMAZING food, showing us very authentic local cooking. It was a beautiful house which had been in the family for a long time, and very clean. We ate with the family and stayed in the main house, so it was a true homestay experience. Three friends stayed for one night in their two rooms when kayaking through the area with the tour company Kalypso Adventures. Thank you so much for having us!

After a few days in Kolkata and a few more in Ft Cochin, we came to Edayadil Tharavadu to relax and unwind. We could not have been more pleased with this homestay. Johny and Seena took us into their beautiful home as if we were family, treated us to the best meals of our entire trip (and that is saying a lot), took us into town and showed us around, and gave us a backwater canoe tour of the village. We walked in the rice paddy fields and in their small plantation of rubber trees, coconut palms, and many other fruits and herbs. Seena is a dedicated chef, proud to show off her skill at preparing Keralan food - you won't go hungry here. She uses fresh ingredients, many from her own garden, and fresh coconut toddy is gathered twice a day too. Johny's family has owned this land for generations, and he is proud to share its history and his family's stories with visitors. All in all, we enjoyed a rich, relaxing experience; it was the perfect way to wrap up our trip to India, and we were sorry to have to leave. We highly recommend a stay if you want a unique experience in Alappuzha. - Robert and Judith, USA

We arrived at the Homestay after over 2 weeks in Kerala. Johnny and Seena soon made us feel welcome. They showed us around their garden, and told us about the fruits and spices. The house is beautiful and the facilities for us were excellent. The food was excellent, and we had a good variety of Keralan food. Johnny took us down to the local village where he showed us around the market and the ferry. It is a lovely place to relax and watch the bird life. After 2 days there we really felt part of the family. Pam and Pete Boardman (Mar 2013)
