A great place to stay, Umapahati is the owner and does everything he can to accommodate without personal gain. He even got 500 repee discount on our house boat trip. His wife is wonderful and cooks great Keralan food (but make sure you ask for spice otherwise you will have very insipid fayre). It's on the road, but peaceful, so 300 metres to the beach so a glass of wine watching the sun set on the beach then back for great food, wonderful ambiance and peaceful sleep.
Thank you

This was a lovely homestay. I have travelled extensively through India and can honestly say it is one of the best I have stayed at. The owner and family were so caring and kind, the room was clean and beautiful. The garden is peaceful, and the home stay is located a short walk from the beach. I can’t say enough good things about this stay. We happened to unknowingly visit during a strike and everything was closed, the owner went out of his way to cook lunch for us ensuring that we didn’t go hungry. The food was some of the best I’ve had in Kerala. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable stay.

The family that run this are great hosts and go out of their way to look after you. Mr Umapathy even took us to the fish market on the beach this morning to show us round. In the afternoon he took us over to get a boat trip (I was sceptical but worth doing - a boat to yourself for £12 for 2hrs). He charged us very little for 4.5hrs of his time.
Back to the homestay.. The room is clean (with air-con!) and a spacious en suite bathroom. They serve breakfast and dinner on your patio and it’s delicious Kerala food. (Vegetarian or they offered fish also.)
I took my own beer and they even chilled that for me.
The beach is 10mins walk, you can hire sun beds & umbrellas there for not a lot.

An outstanding place to unwind and relax. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and spacious. The included breakfast are delicious and plentiful. The evening meals are again plentiful, delicious and extremely good value for money. Lunch is also available but we weren't able to find room for them between the filling breakfast and evening meals. Wifi is free, readily available and good. The beach is less than a 10 minute walk. Both the owner and his wife were amazingly hospitable without being intrusive. The owner also runs a taxi service which was perfect to get us to the airport at the end of our stay. A little gem of a place.
