We stayed at Mummy Bamboo House for a week and didn't want to leave! Having stayed in many guesthouses throughout South East Asia and India I can confidently say Mummy Bamboo Guesthouse has some of the warmest service around! Rani and Sudhanan are amazing hosts; always smiling, friendly and so helpful, by the end of the week we felt like part of the family. As others have recommended, get Rani to arrange your pick up at the airport, it made our arrival very convenient and stress free. The rooms were very basic but very clean (great for backpackers like us!) and the hammocks out front are the perfect place to watch life go by. Even though there is no hot water this is a non-issue as the cool showers were the perfect way to beat the Keralan heat.
I highly recommend trying Rani's home cooking, the banana-coconut pancakes were one of the best breakfasts we'd had on our travels and great value. Also, cooking lessons with Rani are a must! She's a great cook! The guesthouse is only 2 minutes from the Cliff so it's an easy commute to the beach and restaurants but the real highlight is getting to know Rani and her wonderful family. I can't say enough good things about my experience at Mummy Bamboo House and can't wait to return.
