Location is beautiful, with great sunsets from a balcony looking across Lake Vembanad, and a couple of great seafood restaurants beside. However, the standard of the accommodation is poor. The shower drain was blocked, the light over the bed was broken but the manager could not fix it, the bed was very hard, there were very few furnishings in the room, etc.

Our stay at Backwater breeze was really good. It's a small place with AC rooms at the perfect location with the river view. Hosts are very helpful. Breakfast served was delicious. Overall a pleasant stay.

Backwater breeze is a cute homestay. Location: You have 4 rooms on the first floor with balconies overlooking Kumarakom lake. The location is beautiful. You can see houseboats in the lake and so many birds perched up on trees. Room: The rooms are clean, spacious with nice bathroom. You get clean linens, blanket, towels, hot water- all the basic amenities that you may need. Breakfast: Breakfast, tea and coffee are truly home made. Breakfast is delicious and served in your balcony. It includes local specialities like puddu/ appam/idiyappam (rice based dishes served with a veg curry), eggs, bananas etc. Hospitality: The owner, Ajish, is an incredibly warm and welcoming person. He is always ready to help at one phone call. He is extremely resourceful as well. He arranged a cab for us for airport pick up. Helped us get autos, shikara boats and got dinner or lunch delivered to room. He was kind enough to lend us cycles for a little trip and also took us in his own canoe boat in the lake to see water lilies. He was full of kind gestures and made our trip truly memorable.

Response from Backwater Breez... K, Owner at Backwater Breeze
Responded 20 Nov 2018
We are sorry to hear that you are disappointed with your stay. As the host of this homestay, I used to interact with all our guest and I am reluctant to say that I couldn't recognise your stay with us. I believe that all of our guest were happy with their stay here and wish you reviewed here by mistake. If you stayed with us then you should know that this property is my home and the ground floor of the property is occupied by my family including my parents and our all 4 guest rooms are on the first floor of this property. Because of this same reason till date we never accommodate any bachelor's group or alcohol parties here. So please verify whether you stayed with us or some other property and remove this review from here. We will always try to go for all possible extend for our guest's satisfaction and it's really painful for us to know that any of our guest is disappointed with us. Kind regards, Ajish Varghese.
