Kodianthara Tharavadu was built in 1850 by Uthup Ittiavira and renovated in 2002 by Crispin Uthup, 5th generation of the family. The 1st structure of the house with centre courtyard surrounded by 6 rooms with modern amenities gives you an idea of Kerala architecture and culture. A Hotel Management Graduate, Crispin was in Merchant Navy as a Catering Officer from 1981 to 2005. Since then the Crispins are doing hospitality service with great passion to carry forward the inheritance. Surrounded by backwaters the 2.50 acre rubber, fruits and veg farm is an ideal retreat for lovers of peace and tranquility.

  • 5 Awesome reviewed on: 04-07-2023 by Nandita Pillai
  • Had visited Kerala last year. It was a road trip, we used to just decide 1-2 days in advance the place to stay. My husband checked online about this homestay. Luckily we got the booking. Words cannot express our experience there. The owners are so humble and friendly. The heritage home is awesome. The traditional Kerala food was amazing. Just waiting for a chance to visit this amazing homestay again
