Conceived and established in 2006 by Mr.O.N.Damodaran Namboodiripad, a retired mechanical engineer and entrepreneur, and his wife Sreedevi, more so as an engagement during retirement, the home-stay has grown to become one of the most sought after heritage destinations in India with visitors from all around the world. From 2017, with the untimely demise of Mr.Damodaran, the homestay is managed by his wife duly supported by his son Navaneeth and daughter-in-law Vani .
