What's Good: location and privacy
What needs to improve : the time taken for the journey should have been made shorter with more time for walking along the beach or shore or sanctuary

It was really one of the most memorable trip I had with my family. It was the services of Saffron tours that made it so special. We explored the backwaters of Kerala. They guided us so well and planned everything accordingly very perfect. The part they played is really very much appreciable. I can recommend Saffron family for an unforgettable experience.
Beautiful house, gracious host, great home cooking, and amazing walks
by Mycteroperca on
You will love the peace and comfort in this traditional multistory home, with wraparound balconies and quiet back gardens overlooking a canal. Your host, Kurian, will receive you gracefully, make you feel at home, and will feed you delicious home cooked meals. If you wish, Kurian will arrange for a tour with overnight stay in his very comfortable houseboat, where again, you will be fed nicely and sleep very comfortably. When you are docked for the night, make sure to ask for a local fisherman to take you on a sunset tour on a canoe through the small canals. It is magic. And then go get an Ayurvedic massage at the local place. And then back on the boat, ask the boat captain to arrange for some toddy to drink with your dinner. Or, Kurian can also arrange for an awesome driver (Shekhera) to take you around the area to visit the mosques, churches, temples, and other sights. And please take long walks around the surrounding country side, through the paddies and country houses, maybe catching an impromptu badminton game, visiting the local primary school, being asked for selfies by all the friendly kids walking home from school, and again, visiting many beautiful churches and temples. I loved this house, the surrounding area, and the wonderful peaceful time I had there. Go. You'll love it.
Awesome experience at backwaters retreat
by Vacation01443637730 on
It was really awesome trip, nice and rich stay, with awesome food. Very good staff. Very good quality stay in a reasonable price. Backwaters, fishing, islands, bird sanctuary and lots more to do. Do visit them if you plan for Kerala, a must visit place.
Delivered Highest Value

It was my first experience of house boat and it was all I wanted. Good Ambiance,Great staff and delicious meal. The only scope of improvement is that there was no indoor games available,it could have added more to the fun part.It becomes boring and monotonous at one point.
choose upper room with river view and enjoy a morning coffee served in balcony... worth a time if you like a calm atmosphere .

try and select a boat that has more than 3 rooms. these boats have an upper seating deck that can give you much needed extra space
