'Thekkanat Parayil', nestles in a very green and unspoilt corner of rural Kerala.
Set in the middle of a working farm, it is a house of openness and light, serenaded by birds, shaded by ancient trees and lulled by gentle breeze from the backwaters.
The house has four large airy bedrooms, all non-ac, for guests in the main building, and two rooms in the converted gate house accessible by wheelchair, with individual garden space. There are modern bathrooms attached to all the bedrooms.
We have returned from England to take up residence in the family wing and are now the hosts of Olavipe homestay. It is our aim to continue my father Jacob's dream, to carry on the success of Olavipe, to support the local community and to show folk from all over the world a little piece of the wonder that is 'Home'.
