It is always nice to hear from our guests, especially when they have had a great stay and fallen in love with one of our Homestays.
Kalsen from Singapore wasn’t sure what to expect, but found that homestay accommodation offered the perfect holiday experience.
“As I lay in bed writing this feedback, I must tell you that me and my partner are so touched by our hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Zacharias, that we feel disheartened that we have to leave tomorrow morning.
“I was very sceptical about Homestays as I wondered whether it would be an intrusion into each others life. However, all this changed when I stepped into the beautiful Tharavadu homestay. The wonderful host couple greeted us with warm smiles and love in their hearts. Their house is so very spacious and our room had a comfortable bed that gave us a well deserved rest. The bathroom was also large and very neat.
“The couple were so sweet to us, offering us a good Keralan lunch. I had the pleasure of tasting Mrs. Zacharias date balls and had to take note of the recipe. Trust me, they are delicious and of course her own creation!
“Mr. Zacharias guided us in getting the right spa experience and boating experience. Besides the beautiful place of Alleppey, we really enjoyed our good conversations with our hosts. We felt so comfortable with them that we felt we were almost at home. We are going to miss them and of course Alleppey too! We will definitely come back.
“Mr. and Mrs. Zacharias Tharavadu Homestay is a definite must! Thank you Mahindra Homestays!”
