Our house, dating back 150 years, retains its original architectural
features, mostly in teak,with splendid wood carvings. There is also
a fine Ara, the timber storeroom used in former times for the golden
harvest of rice – golden because the island’s lush green paddy fields
turn gold at the time of the harvest.
Our property stretches across 9 acres including lush green paddy
fields and fish ponds. All meals are served in dining room. Please
ask us if you want to have any special facilities like Ayurvedic
treatments or houseboat rides. Emerald Isle is ideal for those wanting
to relax, sun themselves or getting away from it all. The tranquil
air here is salve to frayed nerves and everyday tensions. Read a
book or taste the locally harvested ’toddy’ fresh from the coconut
trees ! When you tire of lazing in a hammock, or sunbathing in the
courtyard garden, you can take a walk around the island, go fishing
or have a swim.
