This homestay is in a backwater of the backwaters (get good directions - our taxi driver got very lost) and the perfect place to relax for a few days. The rooms and bathrooms are simple, but there is air conditioning and the wide, shady verandas are comfortable and inviting. The home cooked food is plentiful and tasty. We loved exploring the quiet tracks along the backwaters by bike (supplied by the homestay) and being paddled along the backwaters in their canoe. The family were very hospitable and helpful.

We stayed for 4 days at the homestay in March and it was a perfect holiday for us (especially our 4 year old loved all the open space). Its a beautiful property set in a quiet backwater village. The accommodation is basic and clean but you don't go there looking for luxury. What's more special are the hosts Mr Xavier and family and the awesome food that aunty cooks. The hosts were very considerate and addressed all our needs - from cooking what we liked to arranging boats, taxi and auto rides. It was just like staying with our own family. If you love nature, good people, awesome food and the slow pace of a backwater village, you have to check this place out. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Backwaters Heritage homestay is a little paradise surrounded by the most beautiful nature, animals and Backwater canals. It is quiet, peaceful and handled with love. So are the owners, they are so warm, caring, lovely people, you feel like home. You get amazing breakfast, always tea, coffee, juices and most amazing authentic food, lots of :) The rooms are very nice, clean, with AC, you have everything you need. You can discover authentic village life by walking or cycling or by a beautiful canoe trip. I would always recommend this homestay and come back there. Thank you Xavier Joseph for this great experience!

We spent a wonderful 24hrs at this lovely home stay and enjoyed the calm oasis, fabulous food and a feeling we were almost experiencing real life in India. Thank you to the Joseph family for their hospitality.

Perfect place to stay and not to be missed! Loved the hosts and the surroundings. Cycled around in the village and had a boat pick me up from the guest host situated on the river. Food was delicious and rooms very clean and spacious.
