Ben's Homestay was a wonderful place. It is located on the waterways of Kochi. The people are also very kind, attending to your every need. And the family with three children is a fun ,jubilant and very hard working. For everybody (especially a family), this place is a great place to be.

Been here thrice. I must say I really love this place and will be back here soon. And no words about food. If you love sea food, I am sure you will be back here again to taste that. Thanks to Benny Chettan and wishing you all the very best!

We initially thought we would stay in Fort Cochin as the tourist things are there. We are so glad we found Ben's Homestay instead! The beauty of Kerala is not in Fort Cochin, the beauty is in the tranquil islands and waterways, and we had that and much more at Ben's. We agree with the other recent reviews, Ben, his... More

We traveled with family to this place during January and I can bet we were transported to a different world. Idyllic Periyar backwaters, Chinese fishing nets, lazy country boat kayaks, walk through a typical christian kerala village and a guided visit to Benny's Shrimp farm were the key attractions. You can travel to Kochi and Benny helps you with people... More
