Such a sincere , warm and caring hospitality i have never experienced before. We visited the farm with our three kids who are in their twenties. They arranged the most enjoyable experiences for us. Took us to local festivals where we participated and were highly welcomed, took us on walks in the different neighborhood around the village, enjoyed , with us a theyam performance and arranged wonderful backwater cruises . Their house is most beautiful , welcoming, convenient and comfortable. What Mrs. Preety cooked for us was unbelievable. Through her cooking we have learnt so much about the local traditions. They made great efforts to make sure we have the best visit in Kerala and they highly succeeded.
We felt very much at home and it was sad to leave. We highly , highly recommend this family
To anyone who wishes for a unique and wonderful experience to both body and spirit.
