Reviewed 28 February 2014

Booked for 2 nights ended up staying 5 as the whole atmosphere was so relaxed. Eldhose and his family are very gently and kind and helpful. Recommended a friend to take us about in a tuk-tuk who showed us interesting of the tourist track places. Finally he organised an inexpensive way to have a car take us to Munnar. Nothing was too much trouble for Eldhose and he spoke excellent English which was very refreshing. Very clean and spacious rooms. Highly recommend.

Stayed at this great guest house for two nights, the hosts are lovely people and very helpful. The rooms are very clean, with high speed internet and decent fans so it's not to hot during the night. The breakfast was also delicious, will highly recommend!!!

1) Clean 2) Homely environment 3) Near to Punamada jetty 4) Excellent breakfast 5) Best value for money 6) Big rooms with halls 7) Bathrooms are spacious with hot water. I stayed for one day and I liked it very much . Owner Eldhose is very nice person . Best place to have a morning walk & evening stroll . But no good restaurant nearby . Though free wi-fi is available , I never used it . For anything like backwater trip & local sight-seeing , just talk to Eldhose & it will be arranged .

Room Tip: Any room but first floor is good .

Most attractive architecture with an excellent location especially for trip around back waters .The ambiance was awesome . We had warm welcome with a masala tea .Rooms are tidy and spacious and bathroom is neat and spacious with hot water we had enjoyed the privacy in Balcony and the comfortable dining . We really enjoyed the uninterpreted free Wi Fi The family members are very friendly and helpful they serve a delicious breakfast . Eldhose is extremely helpful to arrange taxi for local sight seeing and a back water tour
it was a lovely homestay and a perfect place to relax and a great end to a busy weak of sight seeing

Wow! This place is amazing. The rooms are big and comfy. Got the AC, working wi-fi, great environnement too. Bathrooms are big and have hot water if necessary. They take care of everything. The owners are the sweetest persons ever and they made sure everything was fine. Breakfast was very good too. I recommend this palce way more than any big hotel you could stay at.

Nova is a beautiful homestay with everything you could want or need! The rooms are clean, large, well furnished and well air conditioned. Eldhose and his wife made us feel welcome, went out of their way to organise things us including drivers and tours, and told us about the best beaches and restaurants which they were always spot on about! The only problem with the awesome breakfast was that there was too much delicious food!
The homestay is a short walk to the main street and only a 100 rupees tuk tuk to the main beach. Really glad we stayed here and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful residence with the most accommodating of hosts. Lovely place and family!

I was very happy to be a couple of days in Nova homestay. A nice family atmosphere, peaceful location not far from the center and very close to a beautiful view on the backwaters. Everybody I met is happy with the very helpful and smiling family who is welcoming us. The roomsare spacy and comfortable. Thank you all...
