One of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed in India is the Coconut Creek Farm in Kumarakom. It is an authentic Kerala style home stay and it perfectly placed with respect to the spectacular backgrounds. It is just along the backwaters. And is truly an amazing property to stay at. I just loved this place and I would stay here every time I visit Kumarakom.
They also served me breakfast (Appam with chicken stew) in the kitchen that is just next to the backwaters – How amazing is that!
And they also organise the house boats as well.
