This homestay is a really welcoming and relaxing place to spend a holiday. Aby, Mini and Davis opened their home and their hearts to us from the very first moment and we quickly felt as though we had a home in Kerala. The beach hut is quaint and very comfortable. The air conditioning is extremely efficient and the shower room,...

Arakal Heritage is a homestay situated around 3 kms away from Marari Beach. Abi and his family run this property. As stated to us, this is a heritage property more than 300 years old. Well maintained by family and situated around 200 meters from sea shore. We stayed there for 3 nights in January 2017. Mr. Abi & his family...

What a lovely special place. Abby and Mini welcomed us into their home and we joined them and their two sons for all our meals, deliciously cooked by Mini and felt very much part of the family. Through our mealtime conversations, we learned so much about India and the local way of life. We must have eaten - and drunk...

We were on bikes touring Kerala and our tour guide arranged for us to have lunch here. Mini was a gracious hostess and made us a feast of a lunch full of local vegetarian dishes and fresh fish and prawns. Mini showed us a few of the exceptional traditionally furnished rooms (A/C even!) and we wish we had been able...

We were welcomed with open arms at Arakal and made to feel at home immediately. Our hosts Abi and Mini plus sons were lovely to get to know and made a special effort to fix a boat trip for us, russle up a New year feast and fireworks. The accommodation has lots of character, the beach is a brief walk...

We stayed over Christmas in this gorgeous place. The owners, Abi and Mini, and Tom and Davis their children, gave us the warmest welcome. The food was amazing and they helped us with trips and excursions. The rooms with roofless bathrooms are stunning and showering outside was magical. Highly recommended.

I spent 4 nights between Christmas and New Year at Arakal Homestay. It was a little difficult to find as I was travelling independently, but with good directions from Abi I managed to get there by autorickshaw from Alleppey Station (it takes about 40 minutes). The cottage I stayed in was built about 300 years ago and it was a...

We have stayed in Arakal Heritage for 1 night in Feb 2013. The owners, Mini and Aby are really, really nice, and welcomed us as if we were part of their family. The rooms are dark, but very nice, and have been renovated as they used to be part of the ancestors of the family. The beach is about 5...
