We stayed for one week, even we just intended to stay for two nights. The owner and his wife where all the time available and helpful. We stayed over the Easter holidays and they were also well informed about things going on at this occasion. The rooms are spotless. One of the best places we stayed in India.

The couple who owned the homestay are lovely and friendly - they were really welcoming and went out their way to make our stay comfortable and organised trips etc. Delicious breakfasts too! Really clean rooms.

We loved staying at Gini and Bastian's home stay and being entertained by their daughter Gigi! We travelled as a group of 9 - mothers and daughters and were glad that Bastian was our first port of call. Gini and Bastian helped us organise our time in Kochi and with anything we asked for they helped with. Some of our... More

Perfect for backpacking couples. Gini & Bastian are very warm guests. They are very professional and will not only make your stay comfortable but also help you coordinate with other agencies - booking tickets to the cultural events, back water cruise, yoga center, ayurvedic massages, rental bikes etc The place/food is reasonable priced and a great place to stay when...

They are always eager to help, and made our stay memorable. 2) The breakfast was always great. 3) Help with backwater tours, dance performances, and motorbike rental was seamless. 4) Simple yet very clean rooms with fast wifi 5) Easy walk to...

It's a really great family although keep in mind that it's down some windy back streets incase you're alone. That said they were very accommodating and booked several trips for me including the Kerala backwaters and Kerala traditional dancing.

My travel partner and I stayed here for 5 nights and loved it! The hosts are incredibly kind and helpful and seem very genuine. They arranged for us to do a few different things in the area so we had nothing to worry about. The location is excellent and we were never too far from the guesthouse if we had... More
