This is the best place we have stayed in all of India. The house is beautiful with wonderful gardens that grow almost everything you could need. The house is very clean and comfortable and in a quiet part of kollam. It costs only 60RP to get to the centre.
But the real reason to visit is to meet Sita and eat her delicious food! In all of India I've not had such delicious, authentic food. Healthy and tasty! She spoiled us and even taught me how to make a few dishes! She makes everything from scratch from her bountiful garden and she evens de us pickles to take back to uk. We had the best banana leaf meal you could imagine. We visited at the beginning of July and loved it so much we went out of our way to come back 2 weeks later to relax and eat before heading to Sri Lanka. We can't wait to go back one day. The food is a very reasonable price. 9 HUGE meals for 2 people AND a packed lunch for the train for 2,500. We are vegetarian so let her know in advance if you are too, otherwise I've heard her meat dishes are to die for!!
