Description from owner

Description

Situated right on the banks of the famed Kerala backwaters in India, this modern home offers you a break from the bustle of the city. A perfect getaway surrounded by calm verdant greens and yet close to everywhere you need to be.

The Space

Our home is a newly constructed and well maintained 3000 sq. ft villa. The villa has 2 bedroom with attached baths. This is complemented by a large living and dining space which opens in to 3 different patios. The kitchen is large and well equipped. We have space for parking 2 cars. It's set on 1 acre of property with it's own vegetable garden, a large natural pond and a backyard ideal for barbeques and alfresco dining. The house patio opens out to a picturesque view of the river and the bank is a only a few steps away.

Guest Access

Guests can access all the facilities in the house as well as the garden area and the riverside. They can access the river by our canoe (under proper supervision)
Interaction with Guests

As this is set up in a non-commercial, residential family estate. You will have the unique opportunity of observing day to day routine of our community and hopefully get a deeper perspective into a unique way of life, our culture and traditions.

The Neighborhood

We are in Panagad Island which is in close proximity to the main arterial highway in Kerala, the NH 7. On the other side of the river is a quaint almost magical village temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. The adjoining Cheppanam island and areas beyond have some of the best (and yet undiscovered) landscapes co-exisitng with modern facilities like a specialty yacht club, international schools and a super specialty hospital. This is also a great stop for birdwatching enthusiasts. The house is within a 5 mile radius of some well known hotel resort chains - Le Meridien, Crowne Plaza, Ramada, Whytefort.

Getting around

While public transport by bus, auto-rickshaw are easily accessible and frequent, we recommend chauffeured taxis that can be booked for short and long journeys on a hourly / daily basis. These can be arranged at short notice. Payments need to be made directly to the provider of the service.
Other Things to Note

This home owned and operated by ex-hoteliers who understand hospitality and how to provide a hassle free home away from home experience.

“A beautiful and welcoming paradise”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2015

We stayed at Infanta's beautiful residence in Kochi, Kerala for one week in November 2014. Her accommodation i spotlessly clean, spacious, well decorated and with a wonderfully kitchen (a holiday cook's paradise). The view from the back of the house, bird life and tranquility is an atmosphere not to be missed. As a host Infanta was thoughtful and welcoming e.g. there was fresh milk and bread in the fridge on our arrival and attentive to any need we had, if required, without being intrusive e.g. giving advice on how to cook fish and showing us how to get fresh coconut milk from the tree in her garden, and supplying us with fresh coconut oil. Information regarding recommended trips, travel needs and take away food was readily available in the house and by asking Infanta. If we return to Kerala we will not hesitate to stay in her beautiful house again. Infanta cares about her guests and we would highly recommend this home stay.
