We had high expectations for the Back Water Farm House based on the reviews and photos on TA. Yes, the rooms and facilities are basic, as other reviewers have said; that is not why we are giving it 2 stars. The problem is the lack of information at the isolated hotel and feeling of unease that we had while staying....

We found heaven at this peaceful, idyllic location nestled in simple, spacious and comfortable, waterside accommodation with caring, friendly, low-key management. This place is for folks who are interested in unpretentious but glorious natural surroundings and who can take care of their own entertainment doing simple things with nature. If you love boats, fish, birds, beach and ayurvedic treatments this...

For us, coming from a hectic crazy place like Mumbai - Mannu's homestay was an ideal choice to get to for some much needed peace and tranquility. There is no point going to Alleppy if your staying here as your literally living on the backwaters especially this corner room that has a 180 degree view of the waters , beautiful...

It was a family holiday and we enjoyed the experience. Pity, we had to use the air conditioner because it was very hot. Otherwise, things were simple, relaxing. The boat ride on the backwaters in the morning was slow and unhurried. Sunsets were breathtaking on the backwaters visible from the room itself. Food was so-so but the general hospitality made...

What a great place to relax! The small cottages are situated directly at the waterfront and thereby offer a stunning view over the backwaters. The rooms are spacious, the bathroom has this charming rough-outdoorsy feel and the veranda is the perfect place to do yoga, read a book or simply to let your spirits flow. The food is an excellent...

We love Mr. RB and his Wife, their daughter is so adorable. They are amazing host. The room we stayed in was huge, creative bathroom, super clean and the view from our room breathtaking. The food was mostly homemade but everything served was very local and something you will remember forever. They have canoes that you can take on your...

Interesting place and somewhere to truly get away from it all. You can use the free kayaks to explore the surrounding backwaters or hire a boatman for 3-4 hour trip in covered kayak (500 rupees). You can also hire the non motorised houseboats from here and either stay overnight on the boat or return to the cottage to sleep. The...

Situated directly on the backwaters a great alternative to the house boat. The 'boat man' can take you out for sunset or a day trip on the boat. The food is fresh and home made. You have to pay for wifi but it's very good. Manu is super nice!! We hired bikes and it was stunning to go around the...

I sometimes hesitate to gush about a hotel / guesthouse, thinking that it may start receiving too many guests and the quality may go down, but then one receives such a lovely service that one cannot help but rave about it. This is a lovely property - quiet, beautiful location. Its simple, no frills, but great views and fantastic food!...
