As winter begins to set in, it’s no secret that November makes for one of our best months, weather-wise. Cool breeze gently blowing through the day, warm sunny rays beating down on us, and chilly walks best enjoyed in the night—there’s little else one could need for a quick getaway from the city over the weekend. In fact, this house does you one better; imagine all the peace and tranquility you’d need accompanied by backwaters that are literally a step away from your house.
Every room at this gorgeous family run home faces these very waters, that run parallel to the house. Located in Kodamthuruth, Kerala, the rooms go for an average of INR 2,000 per night—which includes access to the entire property and their canoes! Hosted by a family who has opened their home to all those who’d like to experience a slice of village life, they also offer a pickup and drop service by taxi to their guests. Additionally, once there, guests can avail of multiple facilities at a price such as an ayurveda massage, bicycles and backwater boat tours.
While the whole house isn’t on rent, if you time it right you could potentially book more than one room for your family or group. The host also ensures your food is taken care of, just call ahead to fix those meals in advance—you don’t want to miss out on this side of the local life. Bless Airbnb for opening up homes like these to the travellers of today!
