Hi Sanjay, If this is your first time to Kerala with family. I strongly recommend you as follows: 1. 2 nights in Allephey or Kumarakom(One side of lake is Allephey the other side of lake is Kumarakom), some back water property will be good. You can enjoy Vembanad lake and the backwaters. 2. 2 Nights in Munnar. Just 4 to 5 hours from Allephey. This is one of the best time to experience this Hill station 3. 2 Nights in Cochin city. You have a lot of things like Falls, Temple, Malls, islands nearby.... For all the above places, home stay I am suggesting you a website belongs to Kerala government: https://www.keralatourism.org/homestays/ Just click the above link, it will leads to a website district wise you can see the homestay details: it has property name,owner,location,website, contact details. These Homestays are approved by Kerala government as safe and secure place to experience Traditional Kerala life.... Feel free to Ask anything about the trip.....
