We had a great time at Johnson's place. We were a family of 6 where there were 4 elders. He was very helpful in coordinating with our travel and also helped us in reaching the homestay easily. The homestay looks exactly the same as described in the pictures. We could locate it ea…

Response from Johnson:
HI, Thank you for the response, and you were nice guests. This is unlike a few of the recent families who book rooms, turn up and then try to wrest undue advantages like free breakfast (when it is clearly not listed on our profile). And then there are those who will not leave after their check out time, (even when I tell them that we have other guests who are due to arrive and need to clean the rooms and finally have to repeatedly tell them or worse). This family did not try to bargain with us on our various services either, like some of the recent previous guests have done. The problem seems to be that airbnb guests now know the power of a bad review on an establishment. If we, the host leaves a bad review for a guest, it really does not matter because there are so many avenues for tourists to find a hotel, so many other sites, but for a host, a bad review or as in the case of a good review like this one (but with a score of 4.0), it still affects our business. I believe that is disadvantageous to the host. And I fervently hope that airbnb does something about it. I hope they realize that no host, no guests. For them too. I hope other potential guests read this reply and base their decisions to visit us on it. We give fair treatment, real hospitality, no sops. Johnson

Johnson's place was a really beautiful house with ample space for the 9 of us. The rooms were quite big, and the huge balcony and attic were great for relaxing outdoors. There's a lot of greenery in and around the house, and the beach is at a walkable distance (<10 mins) We arriv…

As our host, Johnson was flexible and easy to communicate with. He welcomed us in the middle of the night and helped to settle down. Undoubtedly, he is an eccentric person and staying in his homestay was at least a peculiar experience. The house is rather tired and shabby, basic…

Response from Johnson:
HI, I want to thank them for explaining that they came in the middle of the night and asked me to 'help them settle down', basically, they kept me up from 2.00 at night to 3.00 in the morning hanging their mosquito nets. They were a group of 10 people of all age groups and could have at least helped me, whcih they did not. As quite a few guests who stayed in our guestshouse has pointed out, the photos that we have displayed on our site has represented our guesthouse aptly. There is not hotel or guesthouse in India that I know where there is a balconey that has bathtubs in them and which is hidden from public view by greenery. There are no hotels in India that provides the kind of shower panel that is installed in two of the three rooms that these guests provided. Of course, the rooms are doubles and so we provide mosquito nets for two people. They came in a group of 10 and if they had their own mosquito nets, well, why complain. But there was absolutely no need for sleeping bags because all our rooms have beds and mattresses as is seen in the photos on this site. That was just their being a tad over the top. Like their behaviour here for which I issued a 'no recommendation'. They were not nice people. Johnson
