FREQUENTLY
ASKED.
Are the rooms air-conditioned?
Yes, all the three rooms are now air conditioned for a cozy stay.
Is the place safe & secure?
It is secure and the homestay  has a high compound around the property.
The rooms have a safe locker in each room.The property is also under camera surveillance in common areas.
Are mobiles reachable / do the network work?
Network is good for most service providers all across, there are a few places in the Retreat where you may not get network coverage well.

Is it safe to swim in the backwaters?

To a professional swimmer it is, otherwise it is always advisable to swim with a life jacket on.

 

How about a swim at the beach?
You can probably wet your feet and play along the shore but it isn't safe as the water is deep and inclined. However, you can go for a swim at the Valiyaparamba beach under supervision and in presence of lifeguards around.

"An excellent escape to one of the cleanest beaches in Kerala. This was just excellent. A narrow island strip with backwaters behind and sea in the front. More like a mini resort/farm house. If anyone is a DIY person like me,  he is surely going to enjoy the stay. The staff is welcoming and very helpful. Few calls from the POC before going helped us enjoy things like barbecue and bon fire. This is as close you can get to nature by the beachside .I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to spend some quality secluded time off from work and buzz. Planning to visit once more pretty soon."
