Staying at Lovedale was an unforgettable experience. Our host was always helpful and committed throughout our stay, organising taxis, boat trips and a visit to the ayurvedic massage studio (even took me there on his motorcycle). Food was delicious and varied, with portions being quite generous. Rooms and the main area were very clean. The property offers a panoramic view...

When asking for food or drink, be sure to ask for the cost beforehand. We ended up paying for the overpriced food, substantially more than we did for the room! As for the food itself, it's okay, but nothing to write home about, and no choice or diversity, what-so-ever... probably fine if you're okay with rise for breakfast, lunch and...

We, a family of four, stayed in this homestay in late December 2016. Anshad and Amina were wonderful hosts - very friendly, flexible and accommodating. Anshad is well-known in the local community. He helped with arranging for tours, airport pickup and drop-off, and navigate the on-going cash crunch in India by charging these to our credit card in addition to...

Excellent homestay just next to the Vembanad Lake. If you are looking for a peaceful and lethargic stay, this place is ideal for you. It is away from the vibrance of Alleppey town. Enjoy serenity of lakeview 24 hrs and take boat rides from your doorstep. If you are a keen bird-watcher, you dont need to visit the Kumarakom bird...

Anshad and Amina are the best hosts ever. Highly recommend this small piece of heaven. Amina's food is to die for. Anshad makes sure you are extremely comfortable. You can sit at their Gazebo and simply stare at the backwaters. It was a wonderful stay, thank you.

We arrived and spent most of our time gazing at the lake... Beautiful and fascinating watching the wildlife and human activity going up and down the backwaters. The owners were friendly and helpful, the food was tasty and although we stayed one night it was a perfect tranquil stop off before catching a house boat in nearby alleppey. The rooms...

Beautiful setting on the lakeside down a short track from the small village. Wonderful opportunity to study the fascinating collection of Keralan birds. Anshad and family were delightful and helpful hosts and produced delicious meals with local produce. We particularly enjoyed the fish. Rooms were very comfortable and the terrasse a great location for eating, chatting and relaxing.

It felt like we had come to spend holidays at our relatives’ place in Love Dale. Anshad and Ameena were so warm and hospitable that quickly made us home. Though a vegetarian, I was recommended to try sea food in Kerala. Ameena made such a delicious karimeen fry for us that its taste still lingers on my tongue! This place...

This homestay is on the lake and run by Anshad and family. Look no further, this place is amazing. Rooms are clean. Anshad runs a first class establishment. The food cooked by his wife is delicious. Anshad is available for all your needs. He booked us on a houseboat tour for 5 hours. It went around the lake and was...

Amazing location this homestay has. Especially for nature lovers like me. Rooms and garden overlooking Pamba lake. For shikkarra ride we boarded and got down directly from this house. Mr. Anshad and Amina are very good hosts. We were served simple yet excellent homemade food. Nice canopy covering dinning place and overlooking lake makes a perfect place to hang out...
