Having never stayed in a homestay I was a little unsure , however from our arrival Neema and her husband Prasad made us feel part of the family . Our room was really comfortable and the house was a combination of history and antiques and homely comfort . Don't come here if your on a diet as Neema loves nothing... More

I was late getting to this property and these people were genuinely worried for me. They obviously would go out of their way for any guest. They are attentive to the nth degree. The couple have traveled the world themselves together as the husband is a long time captain of oil tankers in all the oceans of the world. This... More

The Bungalow Heritage Homestay is an excellent heritage house with modern touch and exquisite interior design. Though young, our host Neema has lived in this house for decades and is well versed with the local culture. The rooms were clean, air-conditioned and well lit; the bathroom was clean, spacious, and more or less equipped with amenities. More importantly, Neema's cooking... More

We enjoyed our stay here recently. The bungalow is an attractive property in an ideal location, being very quiet, but within easy reach of Fort Kochi. Our hosts were very welcoming and extremely helpful, providing us with all the information we needed to make the most of our stay. On occasion, we did feel rather "overwelmed" by the presence of...

The first words we heard when we arrived here were: "welcome home!" And what a delightful welcome and home Neema, Prasad and their daughter Olivia share with their guests. Their home and it's contents are magnificent and have been passed from one generation to the next for many generations. Neema is fastidious in her attention to detail. Their home is... More

Neema said we were the first family of Greek background to stay with her and she really enjoyed having us with her. We had a very restful and relaxing stay. We couldn't leave after only one day and extended it to 3 days! Lucky to find you, even harder to leave. Felt like we were a real part of your... More

Neema and Prasad could not have done more to help us. Neema's assiduous attention to detail is truly extraordinary, from the cleanliness of the rooms to her extensive breakfasts which were a real labour of love. Prasad had lots of fascinating stories, notably about his life as a sailor and the history of the house and family. The house was... More

A wonderful experience of a home in a lovely part of Port Kochin. The hosts open up their home and offer a wealth of knowledge and are always willing to help. The new year celebrations were amazing. Of special note was the end of year ritual burning of Santa.

We stayed at Neema and Prasad's for four nights before New Years. From the very start of our stay they were extremely hospitable and provided numerous suggestions on how to navigate the Kochi area and had a lot to tell us about restaurants, site seeing and local history. The bungalow itself is charming, comfortable and, like the city of Kochi,... More
