In all our travels we have never stayed in a homestay or bed and breakfast as superior as the Bungalow Heritage Homestay. The quiet location in Vypeen Island (a 5 minute ferry ride from Fort Cochin) and close by taxi to all regional sites is wonderful. Our mistake was staying only 2 nights. There is so much to see in...

Was booked in here by Escape to India as part of a tour of Kerala, on their recommendation. Arriving late at night after the flight from Delhi we had a lovely warm welcome from Neema and family. A lovely house with much history. Nicely situated on Vypeen Island, quiet, and only minutes from the ferry to Fort Kochi. Sadly only... More

After a busy dusty time in North India The Bungalow in Kerala was heaven. Spotlessly clean, beautiful food and our family host Neema, who knew exactly our wishes before we asked. Neema was like a protective mother to us. Ron and Gay from Melbourne, Australia.

I only had two nights (one shared with a friend) at The Bungalow. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience - complete with a cooking lesson from Neema. The food was delicious, rooms very comfortable and location a short ferry ride from Fort Cochin. The ferry literally takes 5 minutes and runs frequently - gives a nice quick view of the harbour....

This was our first experience of a homestay and we were very happy! We arrived early in the morning and we were made very welcome. After a rest Neema gave us some suggestions of where to go and what to see. Our breakfast was a traditional Keralan one which was also very good. The room we had was also very... More

We only had two nights at The Bungalow but in that time we had a very warm welcome from Neema and her family and loved the house and its character. Neema totally spoiltv us with delicious curries and went out of her way to ensure we saw the best Kochi has to offer in such a short time. We would... More
