“Anu’s farmstay is an example of the true spirit of a homestay. The place is so fantastic and the hosts (Anu and John) are so accommodative and enthusiastic that you actually feel that you belong there. The farmstay is nestled in a quiet place very close to Aymanam along the banks of the Meenachil river. For those who are looking for a calm recluse away from the mundane life around Kottayam/ Kumarakom, this place has to be the winner. All the regular benefits of a homestay are available. The bed rooms are spacious while a separate hall and dining room have their own charm. Also, the kitchen is fully equipped for an extended period of stay as well. In other words, the stay is very neatly maintained. But, here are the things that make it a gem of a place: An expansive farm around the central building with many kinds of fully grown trees, plants and herbs. It is also equipped with a small pool, compost and bio-gas unit. You can see hen sitting on their eggs, a dog guarding the hen and a Persian cat among the multiple domestic cats and dogs. Also, the specialty is a honeybee farm with a combination of both sting and stingless bees. You get to see the bees working on their trademark recipe from very close quarters and get to hear about the process from an expert bee-keeper in John. It was a true delight to hear John enthusiastically explain all the nuances of gardening and bee-keeping and how he used his hobbies to build a paradise at home. These are some things that you may not find even in the most expensive stays. This place is a recommended visit to everyone and for those planning their routes via Kottayam/ Aleppey, make sure you add this stay to your must-visit list.”

“Saira's quick responses helped for a hassle free check-in since it was a last minute decision to stay at her place. We wanted to take a break and relax in between our trip and it was definitely an idle place. Inside Kottayam city but away from the rush. The apartment was very clean and had all the essentials. Kitchen was also very well equipped. Totally recommend Saira's place for anyone looking for a stay in Kottayam.”

“Rajan and Elsie are painstaking in every aspect of playing host. They are very pleasant, patient and constantly making sure you are comfortable and safe throughout. The home is beautiful, spotlessly clean with a full fledged spice garden attached. It will take you some time to go over all the spices. The food is an additional attraction prepared in the local cuisine. It was delicious. If you are a writer or a creative person looking for a quiet place with no one or thing to bother you, this is exactly the place. You can easily spend productive months without a worry. Rajan and Elsie are excellent hosts who will take care of the stay. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone who wants quiet and peace and a beautiful home.”
