We loved the view and built the house. The house is far from the crowd and close enough for me to access all the great sites of Cochin and Kottayam and Allepey.
Wiki can give you a better view on the history of the place where I live. Wiki vaikom , and it will give you a clear history of the place.
Wiki Vaikom Kerala and you will get a clear picture of the town and things to do. Visiting the Vaikom Temple, Visiting the fisheries restaurant and generally walking about the place are the best things to do in this area. Its in vicinity of the world famous Kumrakoam.
  • Beautiful place, Authentic Kerala Experience Beautiful place for the couple. Stunning Helping host and caretaker

  • Smile place is amazing and I can say it’s a antique place. He has all the furniture in place and the house is very well decorated. He has kept lots of utensils in the kitchen for cooking and a great host.

  • It's a beautiful house with lots of antiques and a splendid lake view. There were lots of things inside the house to observe which also gave us an understanding of the people who stayed in it as well as the character of the house. It was totally worth the stay. Even if we were in vaikom this place is pretty near (around 30-45mins) to kumarakom, alleppey or marari. All we need is a rented vehicle which you can find many online. We are never going to stay in any over-rated hotel or resort in kumarakom again while visiting the backwaters. A small suggestion would be to declutter the kitchen a bit. Also special mention to Mini the housekeeper who keeps this entire house neat and tidy. Totally recommend this place.

  • great location right on the backwaters made it an apt choice. the home had some nice and thoughtful touches making it special. view during mornings and evenings was very beautiful and serene. it is definitely very good value for money and an experience in itself with backwaters. thanks for the wonderful stay and hospitality

    Apurva2018-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Good place. Quiet surroundings. Very homely atmosphere with small curios kept elegantly. Personal touches like embroidered table clothes and such. Mini cooks good food!

    Mathew2018-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time at Smile's house. The house is big, very well designed and overlooking a beautiful backwater of Kerala. I highly recommend this place, especially if you are looking for a comfortable house, in a quiet area and with an extraordinary view.

    Gabriele2018-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Smile House was a great experience. More than my expectations. The house keeper was excellent, polite and a great chef. The place was quiet and calm,,the river flowing adds on to the serenity. There was a single wrong review about the Smile House that it is noisy-a very wrong review which tensed me up a little...All my experience at Smile House turned out to be fantastic..wish i had time to stay for a few more days...I will come back soon..with more friends and family...In fact I saved a lot of money staying here as it is very close to Kumarakom...Smile House an experience everyone will cherish...of course relish...

  • On the whole, It was a great stay. Mr. Babuchan was very helpful

    Kabilesh2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place for those people who loves to be close to nature. The thing i loved the most about this place was the morning, birds chirping all morning and feels so good to be so close to nature. And yes Mr Babu, and Sidharth amazing hosts, they makes sure that the client is happy there. I recommend the stay to all 👍

    Ayush2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice time at this homestay. The hosts cooked us quite wonderful food (including several fish dishes), and also arranged a short boat ride on the pretty canal that runs along the property. Bedrooms had A/C -- important, as they get quite stuffy otherwise. Took a day trip to Alappuzha for a boat tour of the backwaters, which worked out very nicely. Note that it's quite isolated -- e.g. few restaurants/shops nearby. Wifi is there, despite not being in the listing. Would return!

    Robert2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks so much for having made our stay in your house such a wonderful moment. The house and the garden in the backwaters are absolutely charming. Also Babuchan and Peggy were very helpful and welcoming and also made delicious breakfast for us. The nearby beach is really beautiful and allowed us to observe authentic fishermen activities as well as being a perfect place for our yoga sessions in the morning and seeing the sunset in the evening. We recommend!

    Daisy2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The property is a 150 years old rock solid wooden based building. A slight touch of backwaters and a secluded beach to yourself makes it a special and off-beat destination. Hospitality of Mr Bapuchan and his family was outstanding and the meals served were truely delicious and aptly priced. We would definitely want to stay over at this property in our next trip to alleppey.

    Bhanu2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place, warm welcome and top cuisine

    Sheeldon2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Babu and Peggy spoil you with wonderful food, helpful advice and interesting conversation. The location to river, beach and township make this a wonderful way to see the beautiful south.

    Anne2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • For a difference, Ambience and place looked better than what we saw in photos. There was a beautiful garden, a fish farm, a sitting area with beach sand, hammock and backwaters view. There are 2 beaches in walking distance from this stay. Also, Mararikulam beach is just 8 kms from the stay. Arthunkal church is one of the oldest churches in India which is walkable and located near one of the Arthunkal beaches. If you are a non-vegetarian and a foodie, you will totally love this stay. we did not have single meal outside during the stay here as home-made dishes made here were more than delicious. We absolutely loved Prawns fry, Pomfret Fish fry, Sardine Fish Curry and Fry very much. The host, Babu uncle and his wife, were very courteous. We loved the "brick and mortar" appearance for the building and the room is made of wooden walls and strong ancient wooden doors. We had an open view to the garden from the bathroom although it was not awkward. Room is air-conditioned and kept clean. WiFi connection was consistent. We also used their washing machine for doing our laundry (of course, laundry comes with extra charge.) In a nutshell, we had a very pleasant stay here.

  • Stop looking and book this place. The host, Mr. Babuchou, is an absolute delight. The house is gorgeous, the setting is serene, and the food is incredible. We wish we could have stayed longer!

    Sarah2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • It's situated beautifully within many trees, birds and next to a small lake in a very quiet part of town. I didn't expect it to be that quiet. Great. The family is very welcoming and optionally serve simple and delicious keralan cuisine

    Raphael2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation in an excellent location

    Grant2020-01-05T00:00:00Z

    Sachin2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing experience during the stay . The caretaker babuchan was amazingly nice , Special appreciation to the home made food they served which was mouth watering

    Gouri2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful home ! Very old house, right next to the river and a 2 min walk from the beach ! The most stunning house and the most lovely family ! We ate the nicest food, homemade breakfast and lunch ! I was also ill and bubba looked after me very well giving me medicine which helped a lot !! Will be returning as soon as possible ! 100% stay here if you don’t know where else to stay !

    Olive2019-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Chekkal Homestay is a fantastic place. First of all, we were overwhelmed by the hospitality and generosity of Babu and Peggy. The food is delicious and a perfect way to get to know South Indian Cuisine. Excellent communication with Siddarth and on the premise with Babu, who provided fantastic tips for getting around and visiting most interesting places. The house itself is a very beautiful old structure with spacious and airy rooms. Last not least there is the beautiful location in a very nice, safe and friendly village, just a few hundred metres from the most beautiful beach and directly besides a beautiful backwater. Great place for families. We visited with two children, aged 14 and 10. We were enchanted, when we saw the pictures of Chekkal Homestay on airbnb, but in reality the place is even better. Once again thank you to Babu and Peggy for this wonderful experience.

  • Great location and place to relax for a couple of days

    Freddie2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Manus place is awesome! When you first arrive you can feel like you’re stuck in the middle of nowhere, but everything is so easily accessible! You can grab a moto from the town close by and get to any destination in the area for just a couple hundred rupees. Or they will order you taxi to pick you up from the house. Manu and his family are super friendly and helpful. With super delicious meals prepared fresh each day for breakfast, dinner and lunch. Highly recommended, thanks again Manu!

    Alan2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful. Very relaxing and enjoyed just hanging out. Adored Charlie the cat! I bought him a raw chicken that was kept in the fridge so he would get fed some meat. Feel free to feed him! He will also sleep with you if you like. That being said it's a great place to stay and do nothing. Except for an occasional canoe ride. Very comfortable. I plan on coming back again!

    Susan Dee2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The location and the view from the property is so much better than the pictures (I know you think it can’t be possible but it is!) We stayed in the corner room, and to wake up, draw the curtains and look out onto the water was heaven. Manu went above and beyond as a host, organised our airport transfer at short notice, and even 2 cold beers at 11pm when we arrived. We went on a beautiful boat tour, the food is great. Honestly can’t fault this place. Thank you, we’ll definitely be back!

    Danielle2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Room consistent with the photos, therefore a terrace at the water's edge. Manu is an attentive and very friendly host. Meals can be taken in the hotel restaurant just behind which welcomes almost exclusively Ayurvedic people from the clinic opposite. Lots of French and a cheerful outdoor dining atmosphere. Construction in progress for another building but which did not bother us because at the back of the room. Beautiful morning in the middle of many flocks of birds.

    Francois2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for an authentic, chilled experience with beautiful surroundings and tonnes of nature this is your spot. The room was clean, with loads of character, and with a few personal touches, making it simple and special. The location was perfect, as we were tucked away by the backwaters but could still get to the nearest beach and into fort kochi by bus. After arriving from Goa I was so happy to be in a peaceful place with no tourists. I made friends with the guests who were attending their pancha karma ayurvedic retreat who stay next to this secluded, and dreamy room. You have the option to socialise and isolate yourself. Manu our host was so helpful - He organised everything with ease and communication. Helping with the busses, tuk tuks, boats.. everything! He even let me practise yoga on his roof. Thanks manu for making this a trip to remember. Will be back and DEFINITELY recommend. The energy of this place is a dream.

It is a rapidly developing satellite town of Kochi. Arthunkal lies in the taluk of Cherthala, which is in turn a part of the district of Alleppey.
    We welcome all type of gust with ready to being with a family ..
  • Melvin is an excellent host. He and his family are kind, attentive and lovely to be around. His place is great, exactly as you see in the photos, very clean, simple and comfortable- all you need! The balcony and dining area are great places to watch the sunset. Arthunkal beach comes alive in the evening when local youth play football, fishing boats line the shore and people gather to watch the sunset. The home cooked food was excellent, and Melvin and his wife were very helpful in providing meals that adhered to my dietary requirements (I had just finished 1 month of Ayurvedic treatment and was following dietary advice). Melvin was very helpful in providing local information. He introduced me to other travellers so that we could team up for a houseboat trip. He also personally took me to Marari beach on his bike as I am travelling solo, introduced me to friends of his there who could cook me lunch, and gave me access to a guest house with a bathroom as there are no public toilets on the beach. Excellent hospitality and kindness. Please note that both Arthunkal inparticular, and Marari beach, have quite a lot of rubbish. There were recent festivities on Arthunkal and I believe that in due course a clean up will be organised. As an Australian I'm a bit spoilt for beaches but I was disappointed by all the garbage and think travellers should be prepared for this. I also experienced upsetting harassment at Marari beach, which Melvins friend was very supportive and helpful with, but I would not recommend being solo female traveller here as you may get targeted and revieve a lot of unwanted attention (fully clothed, not even in a swimsuit!) and harassment. The water is beautiful and warm. The palm trees are lovely. There may be stretches of the beach less polluted but I didn't venture too far alone. Neither of these factors reflect on Melvin and the outstanding hospitality provided by him and his family. More of an FYI for travellers, particularly solo women. If you are looking for a place in Arthunkal beach I highly recommend Melvin and the homestay experience provided by him and his family.

    Cailyn2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Our experience at Arthunkal beach villa exceeded our expectations in all ways. We felt the at home the moment we got there ,the host went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. The food made by the Melvin's wife and mother left us wanting to come here more and more. There was a personal touch in everything that was offered to us. The highlight of the whole experience playing with baby Isa who melted our hearts with the most adorable smile ever. Thank you Melvin for this memorable experience and we will keep coming ! ♥️

    Anjana2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good stay Melvin has a very scenic place and provides a great level of service. If you are heading to this part of India I would highly recommend that you stay at this place. Melvin and his lovely family will take great care of you!

    Marius2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing spot on the beach with plenty to see and do in the surrounding suburbs. Melvin can help you find whatever you need and their authentic home cooking is second to none.

    Chris2018-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Melvin and his family are such great hosts! If you want a relaxing and enjoyable stay in beautiful Kerala, look no further! We were welcomed in person by Shruti with delicious fresh juice. All the meals they prepared were wonderful! The room was clean and nicly decorated, having full panoramic windows overlooking the beach--we fell asleep to the sound of the ocean waves. The beach is less than a minute walk away, and the town near by has a few cafes and shops to visit. Such a memorable trip! Definitley planning to come back!

    Maci2018-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Melvin and his family are very kind. He and his mother prepared excellent food for us and the prices for the food is very reasonable. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and family. The house is in front of the beach and the best part is that you can hear the waves at night.

    Kevin2017-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a quiet place without tourists this is a right choice. The location is great, it is just next to the beach. The homestay is inside a fisherman's village, so you can see many fisherman there at their work. There is a nice Basilica nearby. If you don't mind to use public transport you can get to nearest cities for a very nice price. The room's walls are thin, you can hear your friends over the wall, but this allowed me to enjoy the sound of the waves at nights. Humidity is high though, as expected on a sea shore. Melvin and his family had provided an excellent service, the homestay food was wonderful, helps us a lot to arrange transportation, autos, tickets for annual Nehru Trophy Boat race, gave many useful advices which places to visit, what to see nearby. I was upset that I wasn't able to bring a guitar on plane, but he arranged one for me! That was a really nice surprise! Me and my friends definitely enjoyed this stay.

    Alexander2017-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay at the beach villa - from arranging the taxi from the airport to providing us with a fantastic meal before we left, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The villa is right on the beach - which is very quiet - and its gardens are a lovely place to sit and eat or read, or just watch the dogs relaxing! The room was comfortable and the AC and shower worked great. I would highly recommend staying and eating here. The walk to the basillica and village was great too.

    Arthunkal is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Kerala. And also a good tourist place .A fishing harbour is also being built in Arthunkal. The theeradesa highway or the coastal highway, is expected to better connect the seaside villages of Alappuzha, including Arthunkal, with suburban Kochi.

  • Roy's place was fantastic! It was located in a local village right on the beach, with an authentic breakfast served daily. The room itself was very spacious, clean and modern. For dinner, we ate amazing Kerala food at his brother's restaurant next store to the property. It was incredibly charming with a sand floor and room for just a few people. We were treated like family throughout the stay and would definitely return.

  • The Rooms are Huge and the property has been recently built! This property is on the beach and the moment you step outside the property you're on the beach. We were their fourth guest and the hospitality we got was unforgettable. Mr Roy took care of all our needs and was prompt in all services provided. The food that was provided was homely and tasty.

    Stay at the Honeymoon suite on an Island. Enjoy the expanse of the 1.4 acre property, behold, only half of it is land. Rest is the natural pond, permanently leased to the fishes and kingfishers. This is also your private backwater boating space. Step out to the deck to watch the local catch of crabs,clams,fishes; & the bird formations glide the breeze. No paved walkways, let your feet cruise the sands. Wander the artistic installations. Check out the organic vegetable farm. Feel the space.
    Being an island , access is only through inland waters on a row boat. The short boat ride is to cross a stream. A meandering 50 meter pathway takes us to the boat jetty. We need to hop on to the boat to reach Inland Island. Inland Island boasts of its private backwater. The main cottage stands 2m above ground to capture the surrounding view .The four post bed marks the main bedroom (in pictures) with balcony view of the backwater.
    We are an island , secluded from the bustling city life . Nearest town is accessible on waterway 500metres away. Waterways are traversed by fishermen , sometime would even sell you their best catch.
  • Wow. Words will not describe. Book this ASAP before it fills... Amazing stay. Felt so comfortable as if I was at home. Serene environment. Very timely and tasty food. Lots of open yet private space on a private island accessible by quick scenic boat ride. Nicely remodeled / new stylish home. Will absolutely be back.

  • Ashok and Lakshmi were super hosts, such a beautiful and serene place. Would highly recommend if you want to detox yourself from hectic city life. Food cooked by Lakshmi was very delicious , she is an amazing chef. Sunset boat cruise with Suresh is a must activity in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful place.

  • Rugmini’s little island is too beautiful for words! It gives true meaning to Gods own country. Imagine a private island to yourself tucked away in a secret corner of the backwaters away from the chaos of commercialized alleppey! Ashok and Laxmi were delightful hosts ensuring we had a perfect stay! Laxmi cooked us one of the best meals we experienced in Kerala, a local fish cooked to perfection along with other things. The island had its own private backwaters where we floated by ourselves in an inflatable boat. We enjoyed the ample birdwatching, the gorgeous sunset, the conversations with Laxmi and Ashok. We loved every minute of this paradise, hands down on of the best stays I have experienced in my life, one that left us craving for more time there. The interiors too were tastefully done, multiple balconies, open windows for plenty of sunlight, eco friendly sensibilities, a great collection of books. My only regret is that we booked the Airbnb for just a day which seemed to pass by so quickly. More time there would have meant access to Yoga sessions, exploring more of the surrounding backwaters on their private canoe, and simply enjoying more of the beauty there! I recommend this highly!

  • Words fall short to explain the experience. Nestled in an isolated island away from all chaos is this beautiful place. The cottage is well built and very tidy. Lakshmi and Ashok were very kind, helpful and took care of all our needs. They served us authentic tasty Kerala cuisine, that too fresh catch from their backyard. Lakshmi is an amazing chef. Walk around the green garden, rafting was a nice pass time. The sunset boat ride was so peaceful and bliss. My favorite, BIRDS.. everywhere :) Thank you so much both of you for the wonderful hospitality. A weekend well spent..

  • Amazing place for a romantic getaway. The resort is private, secluded and incredibly beautiful. The heat during peak daylight hours can be unforgiving at times, but during the morning and evening hours, the whole property turns into a small, secluded paradise on earth. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else whenever I'm visiting kochi or alapuzha, since it's nested in a perfect location between the two. Words will fall short if I start talking about the food. I would recommend trying their fried fish or grilled chicken with grilled veggies. And if you're in the mood for some authentic kerala food, cant think of a better place to go to. Looking forward to going back.

    The cosy house is ideal for long stays, for people intending to write a book, or compose music and such. It is ideally located, very silent and very scenic. The nearest beach is just about 3 kms away. Perfect for couples looking for quiet time together.
    The space is very basic in terms of ambience and is built in the architectural style of Kerala. The highlights of the space - its sprawling garden, proffering ample space to relax in the evenings, and its quiet and serene surroundings.
    Neighbourhood is quiet and secluded, and safe as well. There is a shop nearby to pick basic provisions and a church as well.

    An Island. Enjoy the expanse of the 1.4 acre property, behold, only half of it is land. Rest is the natural pond, permanently leased to the fishes and kingfishers. This is also your private backwater boating space. Step out to the deck to watch the local catch of crabs,clams,fishes; & the bird formations glide the breeze. No paved walkways, let your feet cruise the sands. Wander the artistic installations. Check out the organic vegetable farm. Feel the space.
    Being an island , access is only through inland waters on a row boat. The short boat ride is to cross a stream. A meandering 50 meter pathway takes us to the boat jetty. We need to hop on to the boat to reach Inland Island. Inland Island boasts of its private backwater. The main cottage stands 2m above ground to capture the surrounding view .The four post bed marks the main bedroom (in pictures) with balcony view of the backwater.
    We are an island , secluded from the bustling city life . Nearest town is accessible on waterway 500metres away. Waterways are traversed by fishermen , sometime would even sell you their best catch.
  • This island is out of a storybook. You'll wake up feeling like you are in paradise. And Lakshmi and Ashok are fabulous hosts. They were super quick with communication and available at any hour for help and tips. They made our stay so memorable. Don't think twice before staying at their island. We can't wait to return!

    Ali2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Picturesque and Warm - the setting is beautiful next to the lake and greenery all around( private boat to reach the place). Away from city noise and not far incase you need some resupplies. The host made the experience warm with home made food and sharing of information about trees, lakes, birds etc. A must visits stay for people who wish to cut away from the city life and experience nature and warmth of family.

    Shikha2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Kerala in a nutshell. This is the best airbnb experience we ever had. Ashok’s humility and Laxmi’s cooking is unparalleled. Santosh is the best boatman/ fisherman. We cancelled our planned houseboat trip to spend more time here. We were transported back to old times. The property is well maintained to minutest detail for comfort at this price point. It caters to the most most of your needs in view of property location. The place is Kids friendly. There are a lot of experiences to be had here. Ashok and santosh are always there to give their experienced tips. The private lagoon makes this property unique. We caught a few pearl spot fish there. My 6 year old son looked forward to fishing everyday. We always looked forward to laxmi’s next meal. She’s a fantastic cook. They have a traditional hand roved boat at disposal. We enjoyed that a lot. Santosh will take you out on his boat to watch the beautiful sunsets everyday. Highly recommended. You won’t regret booking this place. We wish inland island team the best. We will be back for sure.

    Javed2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • 5 of us stayed for 5 great nights on ‘Inland Island’. It is perfect for those who like peace and quiet - with a backwater vibe - but also want easy access to Alleppey, Marari beach and the city of Kochin. It is an ideal base from which to explore. The house is very stylish, comfortable and sparkling clean, with very good beds and bathrooms. It has nice cool breezes and is ideally located for sunsets over the lake and canoeing around the private island and great gardens. Taking the boats for a paddle around the neighbourhood is easy and great fun. We took advantage of the great gourmet Kerala food - home made each day by Lakshmi. She provided some of the best food we have had in India and was always willing to adapt to our needs. She prepared great vegan, vegetarian and meat based dishes and was not phased when some extra friends arrived - she made a great feast on banana leaves (we highly recommend you try this!). She sources her food carefully and uses organic ingredients. She was happy for us to watch her cook and explained the recipes and how to prepare them. We are inspired to go home and cook more Kerala style recipes! Both Lakshmi and Ashok speak very good English and we really enjoyed their company round the camp fire. Both hosts went above and beyond to make our stay an absolute 5 star experience! Absolutely recommended!

  • This is perfect place to spend your holiday on the lap of beauty of alleppey.Great hospitality and lovely hosts(lakshmi and ashok).If you have shortlisted this place then definitely go for it

    Reshma2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The place is as beautiful as it looks in the picture. It’s well maintained and sparkling clean. Ashok and Laxmi (son & niece of Rugmini) are amazing hosts. It was a pleasure interacting with them. Laxmi is an awesome cook and she made every meal a culinary experience to cherish. The island has serene surroundings and has so many birds visiting right from break of dawn. It’s a perfect place to laze around and soak in the nature. The bald eagles perched on near by coconut tree is a great sight for us city dwellers. While we just relaxed and lazed around, activities like boating in the lake and the rafting in the island’s private backwater are interesting things to do.

    Keshav2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended for people looking for a warm welcoming airbnb stay. Definitely a unique experience for sure. Lots of amenities on the island itself like fishing , rafting , campfire etc. Hosts were very sweet and hospitality was on point.

    Farhan2019-12-30T00:00:00Z

  • The location is easy to find. The views from the house are stunning. Sitting outside and watching the sunset is awesome. There is so much privacy here and we enjoyed listening to music and cooking. We fished off the back porch. The sounds from the insects birds and frogs in the evening was awesome. Please check this place out as you will not regret it at all.

    A safe, cozy haven standing tall among trees. Separate studio apartment within our family compound, off the main road, opposite Puzhayoram Food Court, at Vadayar. Have authentic local flavors from the food court, spend serene evenings gazing at the mesmerizing gentle flow of Moovatupuzha River. Built with a rustic feel, Padma Sadma resembles a tree house with fresh breeze all around. Well ventilated with a lot of open spaces, you can sleep to the chirp of crickets & wake up to bird songs
    Very close to Vaikom temple, this is ideally located if you plan to visit Vaikom Mahadeva Temple, Ettumanur Mahadeva Temple and Kaduthuruty Siva Temple on the same day, which is considered very auspicious. Ashtami festival at Vaikom temple is world famous, so is the unique Attuvela festival on the Muvattupuzha River of the Vadayar Elamkavu Temple. There is an excellent restaurant, Puzhayoram Food Court, just across the street by the river side, serving authentic local cuisine. If requested, food including breakfast can be arranged from here. A fruit stall also is just a couple of yards away and so are a few pottery stalls. Muvattupuzha River is right across the street and many backwater canals can be easily accessed from very near the house. There are a few house boat vendors here that arrange rides that are far more serene than those at the main tourist spots. Strolling through the quiet and clean streets in the neighborhood, with so much greenery all round, is an experience in itself. Auto rickshaws or buses are very easily available right in front of the gate or can be arranged on call. Padma Sadma is away from busy towns and closer to tourist attractions like Kottayam, Kumarakom and Allapuzha. The nearby village of Thalayolaparambu is easily accessible on foot or by bus and has many shops and restaurants. Vaikom, another village, with the world famous Vaikom Mahadeva Temple, is only a couple of minutes away by bus or auto and offers a boat jetty too, offering exquisite boat rides to Ernakulam, Kumarakom, Cherthala and Alapuzha.
    Padma Sadma has the gentle Muvattupuzha River just across the road. Serene evenings can be spend on the banks, just being mesmerised by the gentle flow or try your hand at fishing from the bridge across. (fishing rods to be brought by you) Fish are aplenty and you can join the natives trying their hand on the bridge. A very pleasant neighbourhood, Elamkavu Temple is close by. A food court, Puzhayoram serves authentic local cuisine and has a variety of fresh fish and meat dishes.
  • Krishna has designed his dream home, a treehouse he affectionately named ‚Padma Sadma’, and opened it up on Airbnb. As seen from the photos, you can expect an interesting architecture and a tasteful interior. He thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable: tea, coffee, kitchen equipment, universal adapters, towels, etc. We experienced the most sincere Keralan hospitality, from the welcome breakfast made by Jyothi's mother, the numerous local insights and advice for getting around, helping us find medication in pharmacies, making cumin tea for my stomach, giving us an auto tour of Vaikom's surroundings, waking up at 6:30 AM to drop us off at the bus station, the list is endless. Many things an Airbnb host need not do, but he did so out of his goodwill. We most definitely enjoyed conversing and spending time together with Krishna, it was like meeting a friend. Thank you so much. PS. Vaikom is at least 1.5 hours away from Kochi city by public transport. You can choose a combination of a ferry, buses, or the railway!

    Elmar2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • As first time hosts on airbnb, Krishna and Jyothi were outstanding in their hospitality. The place is uniquely built with a concept of a tree house and one can feel the tiny swings when staying there. The interior of the house is modern yet one can feel like living in a traditional South Indian home. The house is not just well kept indoors but outdoors too. It is alive with greenery all around and many flower pots! Sitting at the balcony one can enjoy the birds chirping and sometimes find big palm-sized butterflies fluttering around. Jyothi's parents, well around 80, who also live there in the same yard are a great inspiration with their high energies and down to earth attitude. There is a restaurant and fruit stalls just across the street which is very convenient. There are backwater canals and nice quiet streets behind in the neighborhood that feel like strolling in a park. One can avail rickshaw or bus very easily right in front of the gate. The bus rides are special joy with open windows. This is a place away from busy towns and closer to attractions like Kottayam, Kumarakom, and Allapuzha. The nearby village of Thalayolaparambu is easily accessible on foot or by bus, and shops and restaurants are readily available. Same for Vaikom, which is only a couple of minutes away by bus and offers a jetty too. It was one of our most memorable stays. Thank you, Krishna and Jyothi!

    Hibiscus Earth is a boutique holiday villa situated in a small sleepy hamlet in Kerala..Ostensibly far from the madding crowd, Hibiscus is nestled beside the Vembanad Lake, which is a part of Kerala’s fascinating backwaters
    Hibiscus Earth is a self catering villa which was the brain child of Thomas and Rosie, who are passionate about ideas of green and healthy living.They envisioned a home where they could live with all the comforts but with ecological considerations. Respecting natural resources, learning from local traditions, Thomas built Villa Vikasa using recycled building materials. The design of the villa is a contemporary interpretation of typical Kerala architecture. Harvesting rain water, growing organic fruits and vegetables in the garden and making intelligent lifestyle choices, a holiday here is for everyone. While lounging by the dazzling pool at the villa, one can see how life thrives around the intertwined waterways where the natives live so comfortably with their natural surroundings. Life here has a pace of its own dictated by nothing else but the rising of the sun and the setting of the same. The Caretaker at the property helps make sure your stay is very comfortable and the cook is always looking out to satisfy your taste buds.
    Though the villa's appeal is its relative isolation, if you like doing stuff, caretaker Kuruvilla can draw up some activities which includes boat charters to nearby towns for shopping or fine dining. Mere twenty minutes by road takes you to Alappuzha (Alleppey) also known as the Venice of the East, a small town today but was once upon a time the hub of all spice trading activities Also within the circuit is the unspoiled Mararikulam beach which is every beach-combers dream come true. An absolute gem of a place is Fort Kochi, also just a thirty minute drive from Hibiscus; a quaint town with much historical relevance and a rich melting pot of cultural influences left behind by both Dutch and British colonisations. Another must-do is a journey by houseboat between coconut woods and lotus-filled lagoons on Kerala's peaceful rivers and canals. A day out for anyone who wants to explore the village can also be arranged. Biking along the shores of the Vembanadu. Trekking or bird-watching in Pathiramanal are some of the action you can engage in. The Villa is close to some of the best Ayurvedic treatment centres in Kerala. Be it for a simple massage or a complete fitness consultation, Kuruvilla ( The Caretaker) can arrange appointments to good masseurs and Ayurvedic doctors if it is within the sphere of interest.
  • My family and I had a great time here. The house large and well set up and the outdoor space with pool and looking on the lake was beautiful. The staff was very courteous and the homemade food was the best that we had in Kerala.

  • We had a fantastic 10 days here. Shreya was really helpful in the lead up to our arrival and throughout the stay. The place is really nice, the photos dont really do it justice - lazing in the pool next to the lake watching the fisherman and wildlife is something we'll never forget. The food is amazing, we opted for additional meals which are cooked by the caretakers wife - what a cook she is! They can do laundry, arrange transport, arrange boat trips in the backwaters - all in the most polite, caring manner. We cannot wait to return! Highly highly recommended..

  • This is the place to stay in the Kerala backwaters

  • Shreya’s place was home to us for 4 days at the start of 2 weeks in Kerala, and it was a wonderful introduction. The house is a beautifully isolated and tranquil spot on the backwater that is a perfect place to unwind and relax. It’s clean, well equipped, nicely furnished and comfortable. For us, the highlight was the wonderful hospitality of Kuruvilla (the housekeeper) and his family. Ever attentive with permanent smiles on their faces and quite honestly some of the best, most authentic food we’ve eaten. Just divine. Shreya was great right from the off. Very easy to talk to, quick to reply and super helpful as we planned our holiday.

  • I was looking for a quite and private property for our family vacation and ‘Hibiscus Earth’ was THE place for it. The hospitality from the caretaker Mr Kuruvilla and family was amazing and they catered to all our needs. The property is right on the backwaters and you can take a boat ride from the property, which was very convenient. The pool was very clean and its nice to have the pool just for yourself. Just be aware that there are not many restaurants close by if you want to try food outside the property. Overall, our family had a wonderful time here

  • We had a fabulous time in this amazing property over the weekend with our family of over 6 members. the location was as amazing as you could ever imagine with a swimming pool in the backyard looking over the backwaters. We also had nice seatings near by the pool. Over all the. property was well lit by thoughtful touches by the proprietor. Care takers were very friendly in accommodating our requests. Over it was a great experience.

  • We had great time. The place has excellent location and great amenities. It's like having your own person resort. Jitu (caretaker) is very helpful and quick in turn around. We really enjoyed local Kerala food. I really liked the small touches like pre-configured amazon fire tv stick (with netflix, hotstar also configured), this allowed kids to watch movies and have fun. The swimming pool and outside sitting area is excellent to hang around with plenty of sitting and shade. Will highly recommend!

  • Hibiscus Earth is well maintained, thoughtfully decorated property, nestled in the beautiful backwaters along the Vembanad lake. The books, paintings on the walls and small artifacts in each corner of the house reminds of the rich cultural history of this land. It offers much needed calmness for city dweller like me. One would have variety of birds and butterflies for company throughout the day. And to top it off, it has descent size pool to relax. But the real charm of this place, at least for us, was the hospitality of the caretakers who surprised us on every meal we had for seven days. One just has to point at one of the recipes from the cookbook and Jitu and his family would serve it on your next meal. We would love to visit again, probably in winter or less hotter season.

    Ours is a true home away from home where you can reach home every day after exciting adventures on the seas. If you are fastidious about being on the quiet shores of the shimmering sea visit us.
  • Melvin is a super host. He helped us with a taxi from the airport and met us near the house. His wife cooked us diner and breakfast. It was delicious! He speaks English very well. This neighborhood is the best choice compared to Kochi. The beach is clean. The area is very safe. He helped us round the places to visit. His friend taxi driver Bibin gave us a 2 day trip to Munar. Very skilled driver and knows all the locations. My girlfriend was happy like in paradise and didn’t want to leave. I give 5 stars out of 5. We were very lucky to stay in Melvin’s house. I recommend. Peaceful and very beautiful place. I recommend. Thank you Melvin.❤️
