I do travel with groups as tour guide all over India, and I must say there is no other place like this in all of the subcontinent. It has it all: warm, welcoming and extremely helpful hosts, beautiful, perfectly clean and comfortable rooms, relaxing, green garden, very good location. But there is much more than that: an athmosphere that makes...

We spent three wonderful days with Biju, Natasha and Jack. The warmth and affection that we got in the house made our stay memorable. The time spent in their beautiful garden with the occasional feathered visitors was comforting and peaceful. The rooms are comfortable and adorned with Natasha's personal touch. Biju's juices are delicious and always come with a slight...

Bijou and Natascha are wonderful hosts. Their house is very peaceful, calming and relaxing. Their recommendation of a backwater day trip was fantastic, canoeing through the small canals. Breakfast was wonderful too!

As you step in to Bella's leafy green court yard stress trickles away...any that does remain will disappear once you enter the comfortable communal rooms and spacious bedrooms. As beautiful and serene as the pictures, this place is tucked away in a quiet yet easily accessible part of the somewhat hectic town. The breakfasts, constant tea & sweet accompaniments are...

We stayed two nights at Biju and Natasha's tranquil homestay and were extremely well looked after. The rooms are extremely clean and well decorated with AC if you want to pay slightly more (which we did!). The overnight cost is very very reasonable - many would expect to pay more for this quality of accommodation and service. Biju quickly organised...

From the moment we arrived the hospitality of Biju and Natasha made us feel at home and most welcome. Bella Homestay is an absolutely delightfully appointed home with colour, comfort and the little trimmings which make is so comfortable. Clean - could not be cleaner - breakfast was scrumptious and delicious and Biju's fruit juices are an epicurean dream. Thank...

Everything we had read in the reviews, which made us choose to stay at Bella was true. The fresh fruit juices that Biju whips up are unbelievable. Natasha is a wonderful host, and Jack is adorable. The house is beautiful, with Natasha's personal touch in decorating adding a special charm to the house. The house is spotlessly clean too. It...

Natasha and Biju welcomed us as friends, and provided helpful assistance when we needed it. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, but still close to everything, Bella homestay is quiet and relaxing The rooms are clean and nicely decorated, and the breakfasts are very good.
