Kerala Homestay Guide

The Homestay is for India a peculiarly Kerala experience and a wonderful opportunity to engage with local Kerala people and families and experience something of the rhythm and pace of traditional Kerala life.

Homestays are usually family homes and often homes that have been in the same family for generations although that is not always the case in the new cities.

They are somewhat similar to the English bed & breakfast except that they stay is more complete with home cooked Kerala dinners available as well.
