Thanks to Vijeesh and family for an unforgettable 3 night homestay,including the best home cooked food in Kerala and great excursions guided by the phenomenon that is Vijeesh. Couldn't have wanted more. Thanks so much.

I met Vijeesh 9 years ago when he was just offering tours in his small boat. What a way he has done since then ! He can be so proud of himself, working hard with all his family to realize his dream ! The homestay is very confortable and clean, just next to the Backwaters. The whole family is so sweet and devoted to her customers, food is amazing, everything is just perfect. Congratulations Vijeesh ! You have done it and I am very proud of you ! Promise, I wont wait nine years again to come back ! See you soon !

What a wonderful stay we had. Vijesh and his family have delightful rooms, excellent food and exciting trips to go on. Very glad we gave the houseboats at Alleppey a miss and spent time on the water here. Read the reviews!!

I created a Tripadvisor account just so I could leave a review for Munroe Island Backwaters Homestay, it was that good! Although you'd wish you could keep places like these your little secret so it doesn't get too crowded, they deserve to be recognized for their hard work. Everything was amazing. I stayed for 4 nights and I think I did all the activities: sunrise canoe tour, walking tour, sunset biking tour. I didn't do the sunset tour but our group went for a sunset swim in the river with the canoe and kayak. Every meal was truly outstanding, from breakfast to dinner... Vijeesh's mother is an exceptional cook. I didn't think I'd take all my meals there but after the first dinner I couldn't imagine passing on such great food. The whole family is very friendly and accommodating. You should come here if you want to experience true Keralan hospitality. I kept the best for last, as mentioned in all the other reviews Vijeesh is the heart and soul of the place and will make your stay special. His sense of humour and ability to make every guest feel comfortable is remarkable. In the 4 days I stayed, people came and went but the camaraderie and the friendly atmosphere remained the same. The patio with comfy hammocks and the long table where everyone was enjoying the meals and mingling is one of the best features of the place. Despite being a solo traveller, I felt as if I was with long time friends during all my stay. The rooms and patio were recently redone (rooms and bathrooms are clean and nicely arranged) and I'm hoping to come by again in the future to see how it evolves!

the only thing that makes me happier than writing a good review is to write an outstanding review. vijeeshs home stay is the place to stay if you are in munroe island and if you are not you should reroute your itinerary. the family is friendly, smiling, caring, the mother could easily win a cooking competition, and vijeesh - he is a born host. he treats each guest as if he is his only special one. he is funny, intelligent, great sense of humour and a good chess player. we turned out to be a group of seven guests who had a great connection so we went on a walking tour on the island with vijeesh, of course, we later went to dip in the lake and wait for the sun to set and we woke up at five in the morning to do the backwater tour in order to meet the sun rise in a special point. i can go on writing and wont have enough superlatives to say about this home stay. there is just one con - when you leave vijeeshs home you cannot take him with you. i tried. i am already jealous at the guests who are there now. you cannot book vijeesh on booking.com so this is his watsapp number. unless he is on the boat busy with his guests he will get back to you. his english is superb. +919048176186 - this is the numbet. thank you vijeesh for highlighting my too short trip in india.
