About Us

Every so often, we yearn to escape the busy life and noisy cities that never sleep. If a peaceful retreat amidst nature is what you’re seeking, then look no further.
Keeth House is an organically built eco-stay situated near the beautiful town of Auroville. The word ‘Keeth’ denotes the thatch roof that is used in the construction of our houses. Inspired by the traditional huts that are still seen across Indian villages, the thatched-roof bamboo cottages are built with locally sourced materials.
Surrounded by a forest of lush green trees, the houses retain a natural coolness and fresh atmosphere. The tranquil location combined with the exposed brick walls and rustic aesthetic is assured to rejuvenate your soul.
With Auroville and Pondicherry minutes away, you have a myriad of things to do and places to visit - be it de-stressing by the beach, taking a walk through the French Colony, or indulging in a sumptuous meal from an assortment of eateries. Additionally, if you’re an animal lover, our friendly dogs and cats on the premises will make you lose track of time.
Whether you are traveling solo, as a couple, or as a group, a warm and peaceful stay awaits you at Keeth House.

About The Host

Growing up, I have always been interested in exploring different places and meeting new people. Residing in Auroville, I got the chance to meet many travelers, and I began hosting long before I realized my passion for it.
Through Couchsurfing, I opened my home to people from across the world. Meeting travelers, learning about their culture, and listening to their adventures are something I relish immensely.
Keeth House is a beautiful dream which stemmed out of all the little things that I love. What started as a personal project for me and my family, slowly became a cottage to host guests in 2019.
I try to follow a sustainable and minimalist lifestyle which is reflected in Keeth House. From hiring local vendors to sourcing organic materials, I poured my heart into the build, planning out every little detail to ensure that the eco-stay offers an authentic experience.
After hosting people at Keeth House Phase 1 for four years, we decided to expand and build more unique houses for guests to experience. Following months of planning and hard work, we have now completed Keeth House Phase 2, which includes three cottages and one tree house, bringing the total number of houses to seven.
