We stayed at The Bungalow for 3 nights. The house has two spacious self-contained guest rooms and is immaculate (it's strictly shoes off inside and there's even a special rug in the bedroom to stand while spraying sun cream oil!). Guest rooms are up one flight of stairs. It was a great introduction to Cochi, peaceful and green, and just... More

We had a lovely stay at the Bungalow with Neema and Prasad who made us feel part of their home and family. Neema went out of her way to help us, getting up at 4am one day to cook us her special and very delicious Masala Dosa breakfast before we left early for a backwater trip. The place is scrupulously...

As the first-ever guests from Ecuador (and the U.S.) at the Bungalow, we felt right at home. Neema and Prasad were gracious hosts in their beautiful home, and Neema even helped us plan the rest of our trip, including making bookings at a discount that she passed on to us! (She's so organized and knowledgeable, she might as well be... More

It has been a memorable experience for me. I was looking for a break from my busy schedule and I didn't want to get busy during my vacation by staying in normal hotels. So I preferred the best home stay available in town - The Bungalow. The place was calm, quite and refreshing. This is the only place I prefer... More

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...
