Welcome to Philipkutty's Farm
Stay in independent, homely, waterfront villas run by a family, on a beautiful farm island, in the backwaters of Kerala.
You are welcomed, looked after, and cared for by the family (myself, Anu, my mother-in-law Aniamma, my son Philip and my daughter, Anya). The homestay concept, and the vision behind our approach to welcoming and hosting our guests, is entirely due to the inspirational thinking of my late husband, Vinod. I now strive to keep that vision alive, and adapt to the ever-changing world we all live in, with the constant support of my staff and family.
All this is set on a beautiful farm island, which was reclaimed from the backwaters of Lake Vembanad in the early 1950’s by my late husband’s grandfather. The working farm, which practices sustainable/organic methods of farming, is two metres below the lake level and produces coconut, banana, fruit and vegetables. Accessible by road up to the bank opposite the farm and villas, it is our ‘vallam’ (country boat) that will finally take you and your luggage across the wide backwater to our island.
