Sheeba and Ashley are the two of the sweetest, kindest people you will ever meet! After traveling solo for a month, it was nice to experience the warmth of Green Woods Bethlehem. I enjoyed the delicious food and greenery all around. A great place to explore Fort Cochin!

My partner and I stayed at the Green Woods-Bethlehem in April 2015. This is not an expensive place to stay which suited our lean budget. However, we loved it here. The rooms are clean, interesting and simple. Sheeba and her husband are very friendly and helpful and take an interest in all their guests. We would highly recommend staying here.

Best homestay we've stayed in whole India. Feels like an oasis of calmness and serenity. Awesome rooftop terasse where the daily-changing breakfast is served and perfect to relax and read. Sheeba and her husband make you feel like at home. Thank you Sheeba for the Banana-Pancakes Recipe :)

This place is really beautiful and an oasis for oneself after arriving through busy ernakulum. We arrived after a long and tiring journey from inland and felt immediately welcomed. Sheeba and her husband really take the time to speak to you and make you feel like you are visiting family who you have not seen in a long time. The... More

I visited Green Woods a few years ago now but all of my memories have been coloured by my fantastic stay here! My friend and I didn't want to leave this absolute oasis. Sheeba was more than just a host, she opens her heart to all of her guests, not just her home! She even shed tears when my friend... More

We were a group of 5 travellers who spent 3 nights at this amazing guesthouse. Sorrounded by trees, it seems like beeing in the forest. Clean, cozy and great location. The terrace at the last floor is so beautiful. And what to say about Sheeba, the owner. An angel. She even gave us 500 Rupees back when she learnt we... More

Sheeba and Ashley are the most welcoming, hospitable and generally lovely couple. They gave us great advice on where to eat and what to do. The home stay is in a beautiful garden with a huge rooftop terrace, which feels miles away from the bustle of central fort kochi. The rooms are modest but well maintained and the breakfast is...

We really liked staying here. Excellent value for money as well as very helpful staff who were really friendly. There was a roof terrace that you can chill on and the rooms are nice and clean with a good bathroom. Compared to other experiences we've had nearby this is incomparable.

We visited fort kochi twice and on both occasions stayed here. The owners sheeba and ashley are probably in the top 5 nicest people i have ever met, tirelessly helpful, hospitable and generous. The rooms are homely and the breakfast is a great touch, lovely rooftop chill area and pretty central. A must visit!
