We stayed here for 4 nights. The place is lovely, but the hosts were truly amazing. They were friendly, reliable, honest and would do anything they could to accommodate our needs. They have a very good reputation amongst the locals in Fort Cochin. The hosts helped organise anything we needed included trips to the Backwaters, Markets and Dr's! They treated... More

Sheeba and Ashley are an incredibly kind and welcoming couple and will make you feel at home. They offer you chai and helpful advice at every opportunity, and provide a delicious complimentary breakfast. If you're leaving early in the morning for activities or onward travel, Sheeba will even provide a packed breakfast. One morning we missed Sheeba as we left... More

We stayed here twice during our 2 month trip around India. The hosts cannot do enough for you, they are a lovely couple who welcome every guest into their home serving you lime tea on arrival. The rooms are very characterful and very reasonably priced. There is the option for aircon. There is a very peaceful rooftop terrace on top... More

Had a hot and humid three nights here on arrival in India. There's some serious animal noise in the environs to contend with and without ac you have to keep the windows open! Lovely green garden attracts fat mosquitos so come prepared! Roof top is a nice break from the gloomy grounds. I had a ground floor room stuck at... More

I cannot recommend Green Woods strongly enough. Sheeba and Ashley are fantastic hosts - Ashley gave us a thorough introduction to the sights of Kochi on a massive homemade map and Sheeba is one of the most warm and friendly people you will ever meet. She made my girlfriend and I feel so much at home, bringing us cups of... More

We booked a few nights here and extended our stay because it was so convenient to the attractions of Fort Cochin, yet very reasonably priced. It was a leafy oasis down a little lane and with a pleasant shaded rooftop to relax or enjoy the included breakfast. A great find.

Sheeba is so lovely and welcoming it has really made my first few days in India such a lovely experience. Have stayed in places similar yo this all over the world but this place have something magical and authentic that is very rare. The rooftop is wonderful and the food is very good too. 9/10 for an affordable and authentic... More

Having read the glowing reviews on this travel site, I book a reservation at the Green Woods Bethlehem two months before our trip to Kochi. It sounded just like the type of place we enjoy (friendly people, small place...). It turned out to be a nightmare. Three days before our arrival, I emailed the owners to reconfirm our reservation. They... More

We traveled for 2 months and this place still stands in my mind as the best guesthouse. Sheeba and Ashley are just the cutest people in the world. I would go back just to see them. Breakfast was amazing too.
