My husband and I spent 3 nights at Green Palm Homestay. Maria and her two children were also present in the house alongside a single female traveller. Maria was pleasant and often sat with us to chat about life in Kerala. We enjoyed all of our meals, prepared from fresh ingredients by Maria's mother and have since cooked the dishes...

We stayed at the beginning of our travels in November 2016, and was definitely one of the highlights of our trip in asia! Stayed with Matthew who was a great host and very welcoming to his home. His mother's cooking was delicious and we had an excellent cooking class with her too. This homestay is a lovely get away in...

This place is the dream. Stunning location right by the river, wonderful welcome, fantastic food. We stayed for three nights but could easily have wiled away a week or more… The house is beautiful and very comfortable, in a wonderful, serene location a short stroll from rice paddies and winding waterways. Faultless.

The Kerala backwaters are just magnificent and nestled within them are these beautiful homes. Lovely decor, comfortable rooms, and some of the best home cooked food I had in all of India. This is a perfect base for meandering around the backwaters or just putting your feet up in comfy rattan chair on the front porch. A great experience. Please...

Green Palms is a relaxing, peaceful and wonderful homely place to stay. You feel so welcome, like a part of the...

Lovely homestay on the tranquil island of Chennamkary in the backwaters of Kerala. Excellent host, Maria looked after us very well. The food was typical Keralan food and very good and very plentiful. Lovely way to explore the backwaters in a bit more depth.

For sure we will come back in Maria and Philip(s house. This is a kind f "out of time" moment in a very quiet village life on the island (no car, no motorbike, only bicycles but for how long ??) Please, do not build a bridge to Allepey... Thank's to all Maria's family and to Thomas who told us the...

My friend and I stayed two nights on the beautiful and peaceful island of Chennamkary! Maria and Philipp were wonderful hosts as well as Maria's mom who is such a talented chef!!

My partner and I stayed here for three nights in January 2017, and had the most magical time. We stayed with Maria and Phillip's family who were some of the kindest people one could hope to meet, and they really made us feel at home. The food (made by the grandmother, Anna) was divine. A cocophony of flavours and spices...

A truly enjoyable homestay. we were there just before Christmas & were able to see how the community prepares for Xmas with carols etc. The morning walk is a must- a real eye-opener to backwaters life. Staff were brilliant.
