We arrived late in the afternoon, after a day of touring and washing elephants :-) There was still a bit of sunlight to let us admire the beautiful garden. As we waited for the mandatory electricity cut out between 1830-1900, we enjoyed a welcome drink sitting outside, entertained by Jackie the adorable pug.
Our room was on the ground floor... Spotless! ... and so was the bathroom, modern and spotless.
We ordered take away food for dinner which was delivered to the house in great timing.
Biju organized our houseboat trip for the following day, and a tuk tuk ride in the morning to do some errands before the boat. Breakfast... delicious!!! Homemade keralan pancakes :-) and nice real coffee :-).
When we returned from the overnight houseboat trip, it was a most pleasant surprise to find Biju on the dock waiting for us, with the car he'd organized to take us to our next destination.
To meet Natasha and Biju in person, it was easy to feel the warm and genuine welcome. They are passionate about what they do, and it shows.
It would be so easy to stay longer :-) Thank you for a wonderful stay.
