Definatly beats staying a hotel! Ben uncle and his family are so hospitable and welcoming, going out of their way to ensure that we were well provided for. 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

I stayed with Benny and his family during the World Spice Congress in Kochi.

Our stay at the end of our Indian Holiday was without doubt one of the highlights of our trip. The accommodation clean, comfortable and relaxing. Ben, Anju and their lovely family made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. Food was excellent, we even ate the prawns that we had caught ourselves in one of the Chinese nets... More

My friends and I arrived at Ben's Homestay after a 3,500 km drive from Rajastan via auto-rickshaws. It was our last night on our charity adventure and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. Ben speaks english well (although sometimes on a mobile phone the bad quality line makes it hard to communicate), and helped us organise... More

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights at Ben's place, and another at an associated place in Munnar, which Ben laid on. We had a wonderful time - a perfect tonic to life in the daily hustle and bustle of a commercial centre. The location was idyllic, especially with the prawn farms on the (accessible) nearby island. Although we... More

This time, on my way back to Delhi I was thinking of booking an Airport hotel for the night. But on doing a quick check on tripadvisor I found Bens homestay.
