I am Crispin, fifth generation of Kodianthara family, was working in Merchant Navy as Catering officer for 25 Years. To settle with my family I renovated my ancestors farm house, which is 167 years old and spread over 3-acres of rubber, vegetables, fruits, & farm, to do the hospitality services in a well-known Backwater tourist destination 'Kumarakom'. Kerala Govt. given the family house a title of an 'Approved Heritage Building' in 2005. From then on the tourist from all over the world started coming over here. In 2008 we built a 02-bedroom Upper deck houseboat and named after my saint 'St.Crispin'. My wife Soni, who is teaching in 12th Grade & me staying @ Kodianthara to make the guests to feel at home.
