Neema, Prasad and Olivia were great hosts when we visited! They have a beautiful house with an amazing amount of history behind it that they happily shared. They took time to chat with us each day and make us feel welcome in their home. The breakfasts we had with Neema were delicious! They were some of the best we had... More

We booked our stay with our kids at the Bungalow Heritage on the strength of the TripAdvisor recommendations. In her first email, Neema informed us that we would be part of the family during our stay. She really meant it. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel completely at home. The house is immaculate and the halls... More

When planning our trip to Kerala, this was the first place that we booked. After making the reservation, Neema went above and beyond her remit, and our expectations, in assisting us with our endless queries for our trip! It transpired that her advice was spot on and we are very grateful. Our time at The Bungalow Heritage has exceeded our... More

Truly the best of our stays during our 5 1/2 week tour of South India / Sri Lanka. Neema, Prasad, and their charming daughter Olivia really do make you feel at home in their home. Fantastic local advice, absolutely terrific food, and a great location just a few minutes ferry ride from the hustle and bustle of Fort Cochin. We... More

This Homestay offers the warmest of welcomes, wonderful home cooked food and superb accommodation. This special place is on Vypeen Island, which is only a 2 minute walk and 5 minute ferry (3 INR) to the centre of Fort Kochi. Neema is the most attentive host. If you require advice or suggestions for your onward trip to other parts of... More

My husband and I are traveling around India for four weeks and during this incredible trip we were fortunate enough to spend 4nights in this enchanting and spotless heritage house. Neema and her beautiful and welcoming family took the best care of us throughout our stay. We really felt like we became a little bit part of them. Our stay... More

This was our first trip to India and my husband and I were warmly welcome by Neema and her family at the beautiful Bungalow. Their goal was to make us feel at home and they rapidly succeeded. The Bungalow is on Vypeen island. It's quieter and a short (and very cheap 3 rupees) ferry ride to Fort Cochin. It is... More

The Bungalow Homestay experience couldn't be better! My husband and I stayed for 6 nights in early December. From the moment we arrived, Neema and her husband Prasad made us feel like members of their family. They offer 2 heritage rooms (we stayed in the lovely Sao Gabriel room, with ensuite bathroom). Neema offered to prepare dinner for us upon... More

We had a wonderful time at The Bungalow during our 2weeks trip to India. It was a fabulous stay with Neema and her family. Its truly a home away from home where you are not only welcomed but also treated like a family member. The standard of accommodation and cleanliness is 5 star and the food, out of this world....
