I loved staying with my husband and baby at Johnsons. Great location and Johnson himself was a wealth of information from being able to organize tours or letting us know the best ways to visit the backwaters on a tiny budget. The rooms were huge and very clean and had probably the most powerful fans I have yet to experience...

Great place. Not the typical simple sleepover, it gives more than just a bed. Charismatic staff, creative, exquisite and memorable villa. Bathhub in the rooftop, great garden, horse as a pet, and other surprises.

Stayed here for two nights, highly recommend. Mr Johnson was very friendly, helpful, informative and in addition his staff were really nice. Room was well maintained and much more than expected. The homestay is well positioned, walking distance from the beach and some restaurants yet in a quite area.

I had two great days at Johnsons homestay. The owner is a legend, pure man who tries to help wherever he can. The rooms are clean, very spacious and have a balcony. It's close to the beach and not far away from the back water. Since it is one of the first homestays they know everything about the area and...

We arrived with little idea of where to stay, a rickshaw brought us to Johnsons and we were happy for the suggestion. Good chill out vibes, comfortable with a really helpfully host and lovely staff. Highly recommended if you're passing through for the backwaters!!!
