We stayed two nights at Kalketty Homestay set in the midst of an extensive rubber plantation with Kurian and Anuja, who were such very charming, informative and hospitable hosts. We had a wonderful bedroom which was superb, large and most comfortable in a separate building to the main house in which we ate our quite delicious home cooked Keralan food, the ingredients of which were carefully explained to us. Kurian took the time to take us round part of the plantation and instruct us on the finer details of rubber production. Later we visited a local bee keeper and his family and even tasted some of the very new honey. On the previous day Kurian had taken us to see a most unusual Benedictine monastery and school. We loved it all and would most highly recommend anyone who is interested in learning more about the culture, cuisine and countryside of Kerala to stay at least two nights at Kalketty. Thank you, Kurian and Anuja for your generosity and kindness. We would love to return.
