Olavype Homestay

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are with the family and other guests around the family dining table. Food here is mostly traditional Kerala cuisine - with ingredients sourced from the farm, village and the lagoon.

The farm is organic with a mixed produce and livestock ranging from coconuts, pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, areca nut, flowers, vegetables, fruits, prawns, fish, cows and goats. Over the years, countless world travellers have stayed at 'Thekkanatt Parayil' and experienced the magic of Olavipe. They have left behind pleasant memories of their stay, dreams of distant lands and a sparkle in the eyes of the villagers. This stately heritage home and its estate offer the ideal opportunity for visitors to enjoy a village ambience.

The area offers scenic village lanes for walks, quiet nooks for the avid reader and calm stretches of water to tempt you to take up oars. Bird watching is a favourite pastime as is is fishing and canoeing. You may be most tempted to simply relax.
