We booked this homestay based on trip advisor reviews. It was a simple telephone call to Mr Stanley Wilson and the response was good, friendly and immediate.
This was our first attempt at a home stay and the entire experience was very satisfying. Stanley and his wife Jasmin made us their place, A Home away from Home.
Our first impression was - "Wow, that is very neat and clean place" when we entered Jasmin Villa at 4 30 in the morning when both Stanley and Jasmin were there to receive us on a Thursday morning after their trusted driver Justine (hate to call him a driver, Chauffer would be apt) picked us up from the railway station in his impeccable Indigo XL - A limo by Indian standards. On a vacation, food could make a whale of a difference in experience and more so for we vegetarians in a land of fish - call it fish out of water!! But Jasmin won our pallettes with very tasty vegetarian food in wide variety, one that my wife asked to capture for fond memories on a picture.
In short, for a stay in Fort Cochin surrounds on a Monsoon week at Jasmin Villa it was value for money where hospitality came free!!
