We stayed at Benny's homestay for a short period in June 2014 and this is one journey we will not forget ever. We had been in Kerela for some time but dint have that feel of home because we were there on medical grounds. When we moved into the homestay we immediately felt liberated. The hospitality we got from this... More

We stayed at Benny's homestay in early 2013, at the beginning of a three-month trip to India. We were traveling solo, without any group or guide, and so we were just a bit overwhelmed when we arrived in the country. When we arrived at Benny's homestay, we knew we had found the right place to being our journey. Not only... More

We stayed at Ben's Home Stay during the last week of December 2013 through to beginning of January 2014. Initially, we had planned for only 1 week at Ben's, but extended our few days to 2 weeks, it was just too fantastic to leave. Ben and his family were warm and welcoming. We can't keep going without mentioning Anju, Ben's... More

The house is located in a beautiful location with full access to the backwaters. The food provided was authentic kerela food that was so tasty, it had us all helping ourselves to... More

The right family in the right business and right place. A home stay experience which couldn't have been better inspite of being a malayalee. It's a must visit for a complete Kerala and family experience. Cheers Ben and Anju

For starters, this is the second time we are staying with Benny and his family. The first trip was in 2011. We again went back this May and we found the same hospitality, warmth and love as experienced the previous time. Bens Homestay is a fabulous place to stay if you're visiting Kochi. It faces the backwaters which gives you... More
