Stay on the farm Philipkutty is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the real Kerala experience a fascinating place with a loving family to take care of you. It is a special place because it offers something different, especially for those who prefer small towns and friendly, and might just be the perfect place for the traveler to measure. You are welcomed, cared for and supported by the family (wife Anu, the mother Aniamma, son of Philip and myself - Vinod). Although the family welcomes you, your privacy is assured that the waterfront villas are entirely independent and away from the family home. The first villa designed by Karl Damscen, a Swiss architect, is a traditional style, antique filled American case, with enough space for a couple and an extra bed if needed. Other villas designed by Thomas Dominic, are the same in style and decoration, but with a separate bedroom, living room and 'sit-out' in front of the peaceful beachfront. All this is located on a beautiful island small farm that was actually recovered from backwaters (Vembanad Lake) in the early 1950s by my grandfather. Farm practicing sustainable methods / organic agriculture, is two meters below the level of the lake and coconut, toddy, nutmeg, banana, cocoa and pepper cultivation not to forget the huge shrimp (prawns) and karimeen (pearlspot) in some channels of the farm. Easily accessible by road (to the opposite shore), the "vallam" (countryboat) that will finally make you cross.
