Homestays in Kerala are homes of Keralites that have been let out on rent for the use of tourists and travellers wanting to visit the tourist attractions in the state
These home stays are literally home away from home, allowing you to get close with the host family and the community that lives in an area. Home stays provide a firsthand experience for tourists to enjoy the rural life, the ethnic cuisine and local culture of the state.
The guests stay with the local people who play host to the tourists, eating with them and learning from them their culture and lifestyle. They also get a taste of the hospitality of the residents. This concept is mutually beneficial to both parties, contributing healthy revenue to the industry.
The home stay mechanism rightly fits into the needs of tourists and brings synergic results into the tourism sector. The home stays have modem accommodation facilities, eco-friendly environment and homely hospitality to offer to any tourist.
At a home stay, the guests freely mingle with the owners, eat homemade food, engage in indigenous tasks like farming and cooking, and share knowledge on their culture, cuisine and way of life with the locals, thereby enriching and enlivening each other’s knowledge base and gamut of experiences.
