Escape the touristy houseboats and stay at Vimal's homestay if you are planning to visit Allepey. About 30 minutes out from Allepey, you will be away from the crowds and able to experience a taste of village life. You'll be welcomed by a friendly family, enjoy delicious home cooked meals and have a clean room a stone's throw away from a wonderful beach. The room is en suite and has WiFi (no A/C, so you'll have to rely on the ceiling fan to cool you down). The beach is just over the pond in the pictures, where you can practice yoga or head out to sea and catch some fish with the local fishermen. It can be a little tricky to find so give Vimal a ring for directions. This was the most enjoyable accommodation during my week long trip to Kerala, hands down.

Very nice and clean room, right on the fantastic beach with a beautiful view at the beach with fishermen in the daytime, and moonlight in the evening. Great Kerala-food. Very friendly staff. We recommend this homestay very much and hope we will come back :)

I stayed here for 2 nights recently, it was easy t get here on the local bus to Kollam from Ernakulam, you get off at Kallavoor and then get a rickshaw to kattoor.
Very relaxing place, clean room, good shower, nice hammock to read books in the shade, a wonderful beach with nobody around, and the dinner was some of the best food i had during my 6 weeks in india, i would definitely go back here, Vimal is a really nice guy. and it is worth the effort to come here.

This was a highlight of our trip to India. The location is idyllic for relaxing and unwinding but near enough to go into Allepey if you want to explore the city. It is beautiful. There is a great balance between having your privacy and the possibility of interacting with Vimal and his family who are great hosts. Mary Helen's cooking was the best home cooked food we had. Lots of variety of dishes and hugely generous portions - always served with the most beautiful smile! We did yoga with Vimal which we really enjoyed. The setting is gorgeous. You can relax on the porch or in a hammock with a gorgeous view or walk a short distance to the practically deserted golden beach. We would have stayed much much longer than planned if it was possible. The accommodation is simple, clean and comfortable. You can't beat the whole experience.

We came here a couple months ago to do yoga. Vimal was so friendly and the view was to die for. Best yoga spot we found on our entire trip throughout India. Tho we didn't stay overnight we did see the rooms and they were cleaner and nicer than anything that we had stayed in! His mother brought us tea and cookies and fresh bananas. It was such a pleasant stay even if it was just for an afternoon. Vimal speaks good English and I'm happy to say that we still keep in touch. I will be back to secret beach soon I hope :)
