“Simply amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

This was the last place we went to during our trip to Kerala and by far the best. This place is a must visit for anyone & everyone who visits Kerala. The hospitality, the food went a long way to making this place the icing on the cake of our Kerala trip. The Gazebo right by the river, Mr. Jossy & his family ( 3 cute kids), fibre boats, made this one memorable visit. Definately a place we would go back to & recomment to anyone. A must visit for any one's Kerala Itinerary!!!

As most places in the backwaters its pretty expensive, but its a very pleasent place, I have been there two times now. This time Jossy got some cayaks wich was great. The countryside around Champakulam is perfect for long walks with a beatiful landscape and nice people.

The food at Kait´s is excellent!

Kait's homestay is an excellent place to unwind, relax and enjoy the beautiful backwaters. Mr. Jossy is a gracious host and did his best to make us feel comfortable. The rooms are right by the river and the eating/ sitting area is on the river itself! Champakulam is a tiny village far, far away from the tourist crowd (even more so because of the monsoon) and we felt like all of the beautiful scenery and all that the place had to offer, was for our eyes only! The food we were served was simply delicious and being vegetarians, we were especially grateful for the variety in the menu! The only glitch was that some renovation work was being done during the day but was stopped in the evening at our request. Overall, an excellent stay and we look forward to being back!

Me and my two friends planned for 4 days trip in Alleppey. We are looking for an homestay which is comes in our budget. We gone through many homestays. And we got some cheaper homestay also. Its cheaper but the rooms and all is not yet cleaned. At last we gone to KAITS HOME. Its very cheaper and very neat. We gone for one cottage with an extra bed. The host Mr.Jossy is the perfect host which i ever seen. He is always ready for helping us.
The food which is served in kaitshome is really tasty and mouth watering dishes. We got really homely food from this homestay.
We really enjoyed our stay very much.

It was a Nice Home Stay on Pamba River 15Kms From Allappey Town. Property is directly connected to river amidst small champakulam village. Old Type Rooms though Small were nice neat & Clean With use of wood at one side was giving rustic touch. Rooms were seprate from adjacent building were host family stays. Bathroom size was normal but hot water was bit problem due to low voltage. Front Varandah is good place to seat & Chill looking at life passing by the river. Host Mr. Jossy is great guy who was always willing to share the knowledge. You can get feel of Life of Kuttanad village,Rice Farming by staying here. Even in Property itself there are various different Plantations. Not Suitable for person whose primary requirement is Luxury or require frequent room services. Food was simple and good. Little more variety in breakfast would have been welcomed. Lunch & Dinner Charges felt higher as compare to our other Home stay.

Kaits Home : It was a Nice Home Stay on Pamba River 15Kms From Allappey Town.
Property is directly connected to river amidst small champakulam village.
Old Type Rooms though Small were nice neat & Clean With use of wood at one side was giving rustic touch. Rooms where seprate from adjacent building were hosts family stays.Bathroom size was normal but hot water was bit problem due to low voltage.
Front Varandah is good place to seat & Chill looking at life passing by the river. Host Mr. Jossy is great guy who was always willing to share the knowledge. You can get feel of Life of Kuttanad village,Rice Farming by staying here. Even in Property itself there are various different Plantations. Not Suitable for person whose primary requirement is Luxury or require frequent room services. Food was simple and good. Little more
variety in breakfast would have been welcomed. Lunch & Dinner Charges felt higher as compare to our other Home stay.
We enjoyed a morning walk at village a lot accompanied by Our Host Mr. Jossy become
very much informative.Also a motor boat trip to vembanad Lake (1.5 Hr. by motor boat) was wonderful experience. Beauty of Homestay was that personal Guests of Mr. Jossy were also at our service in turn we had to restrict ourselves to be more demanding as they already had many guests at their home coincidentally.
When we checked in around 5.00 in evening Due to low voltage A.C. Where not working and Humidity in room was very high. It was Impossible to seat & relax in room. Host started generator around 10 p.m. after our dinner. Felt that they could have started it little more earlier.A.C. stopped workingafter 2-3 hour thank god by that time Humidity was gone.

We stayed here for a few days and thoroughly enjoyed it, due mainly to three things - the utterly blissful location at the riverside and the chance to waste hours watching life go by and the giant fruit bats flying overhead at night; the warm welcome from Jossy and his beautiful family; and the food, stunning home cooking that left us full and fully satisfied.

One of the most peaceful and happy places I have been to in India.
