Leave the mainstream tourist attractions of God s own country behind and stày with us at our new, beautiful bed & breakfast river side homestay in North Kerala.

Dive into natural silence and peace between our secluded Ranipuram hill station (the “Ooty” of Kerala), the famous Bekal Fort and the wild Arabian Sea with its unspoilt beaches and hidden backwaters.

The space
Our home sits on the edge of Kolichal, a small, friendly village with all amenities including supermarket, ATM, cyber cafe, grocery shops and village restaurants. It is easily accessible by road and blessed with lush green flora and a hilly landscape providing a pleasant climate throughout the year.

Our space represents a newly finished, Kerala style heritage home. traditionally built with natural materials. It provides all modern amenities with 2 double bed rooms including spacious en suite bathrooms - one indoor and one natural outdoor bathroom allowing to shower open air under bamboo and coconut trees next to a small papaya grove. We provide a basic kitchen for your own use. Or we invite you to enjoy authentic home made Kerala food both veg and non-veg including seafood at extra cost. A spacious covered terrace allows you to relax in a hammock while enjoying the peaceful colony life and feeling the breeze which touches the branches of the holy tree next to the river bank.

Welcome friends... Namaste I'm Vinod Balan from Kerala. I would like to meet people from all around the world to show our culture and to experience trekking, swimming, the hidden backwaters by boat and many other activities based upon your interests. As a traditional Kerala chef, I will prepare many great tasting Indian dishes and you will have the opportunity to learn to make those if you desire that. Our unique location is close to the beautiful Arabian Sea with world renown beaches here in northern Kerala. backwaters, famous hill stations and untouched jungles and rivers. I have a hospitality service background with 15+ years experience in tourism and now as a airbnb superhost. We believe it's important for tourists to get a taste of the real culture and history of India while enjoying the natural wonders of India in not so touristy locations. We want your visit to be truly unique and we will accommodate changes to your itinerary based upon your interests. Welcome our homestay!
