excellent value, lovely people
End of a lovely two weeks. This is our 3rd visit to Kerala, the previous 2 spent in hotels, this time we decided to rent a villa instead, so glad we choose Beachwood.
Joshy and his lovely family could not have done any more to make our stay memorable .
The villa was clean and spotless fresh towels and sheets were supplied every week, There was a lovely porch to sit out on and watch India go by.
The family, one evening made us a meal of mussels fresh fish and a host of local vegetables, delicious.
We were even invited on the way back from a trip to Periyer to stop and have breakfast with Joshy extended family with a tour of the family Spice Plantation it was delightful.
Also thanks must go to Mohan who was our driver and go to guy his help was invaluable.
