The hosts at Riverside Heritage Homestay are Basil Mylanthra, a retired senior marketing executive of a multi-national company and his wife Annie, an expert in Kerala-style cooking. They are very cordial and hospitable. Basil has a vast knowledge of the area. His personal advice on your local itinerary, local shops or activities or to answer any imaginable question is invaluable.

Behind the Homestay Bungalow is a later built RIVER FACING COTTAGE. This cottage is also traditional Kerala style with clay tile roofing and flooring. Its huge Balcony, wooden ceilings and modern amenities brings luxury to the cottage. It is like a miniature of the Heritage bungalow. All the bed rooms have modern style en-suit bathroom attached.
