We see the face of God in all our guests and treat them with equanimity, irrespective of their race, nationality, religion, or social standing. Our homestay is nestled within an organic farm and hence offers peace, privacy and relaxation to our guests. Though situated amidst a bustling city, we strive to preserve and maintain a natural environment, studded with coconut and arecanut palms, banana plants and fruit trees.
We welcome customers who wish to stay in a Homely Environment; either as Single or with Family or in Groups without disturbing the peaceful atmosphere here; on a daily/ short term basis for a variety of reasons and we shall try to help them as much as possible.
HEALTH & SECURITY:
Due to the increasing risks being associated with the spread of virus diseases and terrorism, we have been advised by the concerned authorities to interact with the guests and satisfy ourselves before giving them accommodation, since the prime responsibility to maintain the security and the healthy enviornment here, falls upon us.
Though our homestay is situated in a large compound, it is fully secure, with six feet wall all around it. In addition we have two watch dogs. They are very vigilant especially during night and they are trained to detect and to bring to our attention any suspicious movement both within the compound and its periphery as well. Since we are staying with family in the same building on the ground floor, all necessary help and assistance are provided as and when needed.
According to recent studies being conducted worldwide, on the methods of increasing bodily immunity towards corona and similar infections, the use of coconuts and its derivatives are widely recommended, since they contain lauric acid and polyphenol anti-oxidants. So we use virgin coconut oil and other derivatives like grated coconut and coconut milk in our food preparations to increase the immunity of our guests and to safeguard their health.

Again during the devastating floods which ravaged Kerala during the middle of August 1918, Kochi City, which lies below sea level was miraculously saved and protected by the divine intercession of Mother Mary. She has been doing so ever since its formation dring the great flood of 1341 A. D; that changed the course of river Periyar; whose main arm now flows out into the Vembanad lake and then into the Arabian Sea. (Please see the 'Sightseeing' page.)
