About 100 kms from Kochi and 75 kms from Thekaddy by road, this homestay is located on a hillock of Anchiluppa of Kanjirappally. The home was built way back in 1927. It has now been renovated and modified into a beautiful traditional Kerala-style bungalow. George Abraham, the proprietor of the house stays in the bungalow with his wife Susan.
George will be ever willing to take you around 20 acres of rubber plantation around the house and share information on cultivation of local spices, fruits, and farming in the area. If interested one can even get up early morning to witness how rubber tappers tap the tree producing latex.
The architecture of the building is a mix of early Syrian Christian home architecture with the traditional spacious Keralite style of numerous cross ventilated doors and windows. The roof of the house is steeply sloping and red-tiled which is supported by wooden pillars. The rooms are traditionally built but luxuriously furnished with modern and well equipped bathrooms attached to them. This homestay has not one but many interesting spots as options to relax. The guests can have a dip in the swimming pool built in ancient style with a 'Kulippura' (bathing ghat), read a book in the open courtyard or simply sit in the verandah while sipping 'Tender Coconut' which is a speciality drink of the area.
