This was my second visit to Heavenly after my first visit back in 2012. My stay lasted for three nights.
I was keen to see if Patrick and Mary would be able to maintain their high standards of hospitality and accommodation.
I needn't have worried - not only has the high level of service been continued, but the facilities have been both upgraded and improved. On arrival at Heavenly, I had to do a double take, as I didn't recognise the building!
A significant re-furbishment programme has taken place. The original house has been extended and two further bedrooms have been added. Heavenly now boasts four fully equipped air-conditioned rooms, with all mod-cons finished to a very high standard, providing excellent value for money.
The hosts have maintained the ability to provide a very personal service and cater for the every need of their guests. You also receive added value by staying here. For example, through his connections, Patrick took me to a superb sailing club, where I was able to canoe on the magnificent backwaters of Kerala - an amazing experience. We then went on to a local village Toddy shop where we ate a fabulous meal of beef curry and fish small - fry. Rick Stein would have been impressed with the taste and flavour! Without Patrick, I would not have had this unique experience.
It goes without saying that the quality Of the catering, hygiene and attention to detail is second to non.
I have no hesitation in recommending Heavenly and look forward to my next visit. I wish Patrick and Mary every success for the future - success which their hard work and generosity deserve.
