I stayed with my husband at Cochin's Berhard Bungalow in 2011. He died of cancer in 2013. I went back to Cochin for a friend's wedding this year, 2014 and asked Coral for the same room. She had already booked the same room without my asking. This is a delightful homestay in the heart of Fort Cochin. Coral was very... More

Stayed here on a couple different occasions and enjoyed it tremendously. Coral, the owner, is super friendly and helpful. The location is perfect and the rooms are immaculate and airy. I highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed here for a week at the end of February in on of the upstairs rooms (R3000). It's hard to describe the experience of staying in Bernard Bungalow without getting personal because it is a personal experience. When you stay here, you are not staying in a hotel, you are staying in Coral Bernard's house. If this is not... More

We stayed here one night after completing the Rickshaw Run. It was a bit on the pricey side, but its got character, the staff is very warm and friendly and you can't beat the location. Beds were comfortable. Hot water and decent wifi.

We have been staying in Bernards homestay for 3 nights. What a great place! Friendly staff and the lady running the homestay is the best. She will take care of you and gives tips, arranges tickets etc. The rooms are very clean, the beds are good and it's quiet. The homestay has a view of the paradeground and it's a... More

Bernard Bungalow is a beautiful restored colonial house. We booked all 3 rooms on the top floor for a single friend traveling with us and then 2 adults in 1 room and our 2 kids in the room next to us. Lovely dark boards on the floor and the ceiling. A/c and fan, big firm beds with mosquito net (our... More

We loved our stay in the comfortable and homely Bernard Bungalow. Gracious host Coral Bernard and her family were very welcoming and made our stay a memorable one. Our room was spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed our breakfasts watching various recreational activities opposite on the parade ground. Coral was very helpful in recommending excellent places to eat locally and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights to explore Fort Cochin. Coral and her family were great hosts serving a lovely breakfast and helping us book trains for our onward travel. The rooms are nice and the bathrooms great. The best thing about the accommodation though is the veranda overlooking the local park. Coral also recommended 2 great restaurants: Dal Roti... More

A new experience for my wife and I staying with a family, we enjoyed our time here and we were made to feel very welcome. The house is only 300m from the ferry/barge to fort cochin which runs every 10 minutes, until 10pm, and although its on the main road its very peaceful. Having home cooked meals was very special,...
