The property owner was very hospitable, he fulfilled all our requirements, the location is good in terms of privacy and solitude. A great place for a couple of day outing
Good place to visit, have a private beach,one side and other side covered with back waters. separate boat to roam around, where we can spend quality time with family, very calm and cool place.3 times food is really good and Ranjit and staff who is working there is very co-operative and helpful.
Couple of things which needs to be improved.
1) Cleaning and electricity in the rooms needs to be checked well in advance before the guest arrived.
2) Back up of electricity and water should be kept ready.
overall if they improve these two things and try maintain same quality of food then it will be very good.
Response from Trailroot Team:
Thank you for taking time out to review our property, we consider guest feedback is essential in improving our experiences.
I am glad you enjoyed your food & hospitality with us and am not happy to note that you found our service regarding the electricity backup & cleanliness was a upset
I have conveyed your feedback to the property caretaker and would like to assure you that he has initiated the appropriate measures to ensure that the same is rectified at the earliest.
Due to heavy monsoon in Kerala, faced electricity problem due to which the power backups after continous use of 8hrs drained out & Hot water was not available on your arrival since we run it on electric geysers.
Let me assure you that we have taken all your feedback positively.
Assuring you of our best attention and services at all times.

One of the kind in terms of experience and location. Well maintained facility and staff people were like our own family members. Hospitality at its best. Home made delicious local food and very delicious as well. One has to walk few steps to reach backwaters or private beach. Get up to see sunrise right from your room and just walk few yards to see awesome sunset. Very nice and unique place. Safe place for staying on an island. Will definitely recommend to my friends. Kayaking was very nice on the backwaters and could easily visit mangroves or an island nearby. Enjoyed my stay with my family. Thanks to Ranjith and his staff for making our stay a memorable one.
Really awesome private beach & resort! Indeed an excellent host Ranjith, staff with genuine care with love. Very safe, well maintained. Amazing stay and experience. Must visit place. The place is really an island with sea on one side and backwaters on the other! Just step out of your room and walk into the backwaters. At the backyard take a few steps and reach awesome private beach! Kayaking a highlight, in very safe waters, paddle away to the nearby mangroves!

Really awesome private beach resort! Indeed and excellent host Ranjith, staff with genuine care with love. Very safe, well maintained. Amazing stay and experience. Must visit place
I stayed in this homestay for a few days and I''m absolutely amazed with this place.You can forget the world here!
All I could hear was the ocean and soothing sound of palm trees, I had the beach almost to myself, the staff is great, they made me feel like home, food was delicious, room was very comfortable and clean, I couldn''t ask for more.
I definitely recommend
Just amazing! Very private and peaceful place. Excellent host (Ranjith) and helpful staff (Gangadhar and his family). Good service and food. I will definitely visit it again and recommend this place to all my friends. Thanks to Trailroot (and Chirag) too for adding this island to their list of places and good coordination as always.
Beautiful Place....An ideal Place for relaxation...Location of this beach house is superb as it lies in between the Sea and Lake.. You will get Lake view in the front and Sea in the back side. Food is awesome ..you will be served with variety of foods like River fish, River crab,Clams, Mussels,Tiger prawns etc. Good staff and good hospitality. Me and my wife really enjoyed staying here.
I am an avid traveller and most of the times it''s a solo driving to that I undertake. This time for a change decided to visit this mystery place by parking the car in a nearby secured parking, arranged by Mr.Renjith, and take a jolly ride on a motor boat with my family.
Mighty pleased that I decided to stay at this place and must appreciate the good host and the great food that they served us. Nice homely accommodation with an all authentic Kerala Cuisine on offer and you get a complimentary secluded stay away from all the hustle and bustle tucked in between the mighty Arabian Sea and the Kerala Back waters.
Highly recommended for those who are in search of offbeat home stays.
Island Homes is an amazing place to spend some quality time.
The location is the USP here, just ~200mtrs of land between Arabian sea.
You will have to park your vehicle at other side of shore and reach this place by boat(pickup and drop by boat with no extra cost).
Deluxe rooms are basic rooms in old house(their kitchen is also located here).
Super deluxe rooms are in newly constructed building(nice balcony with backwater view) which is few steps away from the old house.
Their service is really good, their boatman Mr. Gangan takes care of the guests very well.
The food provided were really tasty, crab, prawn and fish curry, tiger prawn and kallumakki (clams) fry were really really tasty.
Some of the vegetarian curry and side dishes were also very well made.
The owner Mr Ranjith was very kind and very knowledgeable with all the local information.
You can also enjoy government ferry ride in the backwaters for ~1 hour at just Rs. 12.
Once you are there, there are no shops of any kind, so arrange for all the things needed before hand.
All in all a magnificent place to spend peaceful time between the calm backwaters and the roaring sea.
IMP : It''s a request to please maintain the sanctity of this place, I could see the tourist''s throwing plastic covers and bottles with no regard, the people there are having tough time managing all the litter, please don''t litter.

Island Homes is an enthralling place to visit. Landlocked, serene & tranquil. Mr Ranjith is a fabulous host & a man with immense spirituality. It has sea on one side & river on the other..
Thanks for all support as always. But the distance/time taken to the destination was a little unexpected. It took nearly 10 hrs even when I tried a little different route both ways. Otherwise, location was really good with both Beach and Backwater views.

If you want to disconnect from the whole world, this is your place. Very basic, but the surroundings are amazing. The family taking care of the place and the hosts is so nice. The food really good. You then realise you don’t need much to be happy...

Amazing beach stay located with direct access to a private beach. Superb seafood. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed
This place is a paradise. Our (Myself, wife and 4 year old daughter) overall trip was 100% package of fun, food and peace. I should thank Chirag(trailroot.in) for suggesting this bful place even though I had diff place in my mind. The hospitality by Ranjith and his team @ the venue was just amazing. I should give my special thanks to gangadhar for local help and knowledge, the aunt who cooks amazing food and the silent guy who will make sure Ur food is there at the right place and time. As Ranjith mentions this place is a romance between backwater and a beach.
