At night you can lay on the rocks and do star gazing with waves music and some splashes trust me nothing can beat the peace and you will forever carry that memory in your heart. The homestay is quite secluded with four cottages. Travelling with a group of 6+ people would be safe and it would feel more comfortable as the stay is a small and cozy one so sharing with strangers may not be as comfortable as with your own tribe. The homestay people were quite humble they cook whatever you want ( Only basic staples like rice, roti, dal and curry ). They even took us on a ride in their jeep to the nearby market. Overall the stay is super good if you love nature over luxury.
This place is an hour drive from kollam. It is an island group over the Ashtamudi Lake.
