Listed on Airbnb, the place is available for 3000 INR a night + around 400 INR as service charge. The price is for a double occupancy room along with free breakfast. This is quite a steal given the warmth of the host - Nimmy along with Dhavamani, Raju, Laxmi and the rest of the house staff.
About the Host :
Nimmy is an amazing host. She will welcome you will a warm smile and a hug. She is trained in Mohiniyattam and Kuchipudi dance forms. If lucky, you will see the group perform / practice in their artist centre. Unfortunately when we arrived, they were headed to Chennai for a show.
Spread over 3 acres, it consists of private bungalows, community homes, a performing centre, kitchen garden, a lotus pond and a beautiful salt water pool.
If you are a family, choose a private bungalow, but the community homes is where I would recommend to stay. Specially if you are a solo traveller. The homes have a private bed, but the living room, kitchen, reading rooms are shared. These are places to interact and share experiences with fellow travellers
Every community home is modelled differently with a unique eco-friendly mud construction.
