I have stayed in this home stay more than two occasion. The rooms are modestly furnished and clean with blissfully cold AC. The owner is very co-operative and an understanding person. The food is limited to free breakfast only though not at all a problem, as there are many food joints nearby. The place is comfortable located near South Railway station and busy Kadavantra street few feet away but very calm and quite surrounding. If you are in a tight budget or do not want to shell out fancy sums for staying I recommend this place.

Travelling India as a couple and booked Jose Farms from an internet review. This was our first stop in Kerala and from the start it was very easy- 5 minutes walk from the station and greated with a big smile.

Room was basic but 2 comfortable beds and en suite bathroom. We were given some excellent guide books and Jose produced his own pocket guides for us as well.

Breakfast was cooked by Jose in his new dining room and was FANTASTIC! Try the food here for traditional Keralan cuisine then visit one of the Kathakali shows.

Worth mentioning that the mosquitoes are massive here- plenty of mossie rep does the job!

Stay here and experience the city before heading on or across to Fort Cochin.

Room Tip: 1. Plenty of mossie rep. 2. Try the breakfasts!

Hello Vanessa,
Thanks for your nice review and I am very glad to know that you had enjoyed your stay here. Since I am a poor cook, my wife Elsie deserves the compliment for breakfast. Mosquitoes are a seasonal phenomena here. So when you visit us next time, we shall provide you with additional mosquito nets. Welcome back again! May God bless you!

Room : The room is very basic but very very clean. The bathroom especially is immaculate

Location : Very strategic...200m from the ernakulam south railway station and just 5-10 mins drive from the shopping areas. Also plenty of autos right in front of the house for you to get around.

Food : Breakfast was delicious and plentiful!!! I asked uncle to pack me a lunch and he packed everything nicely in a tin wrap.....4 slices of bread with jam, 2 bananas and 1 omelette...all for only Rp50!!!! Amazing. Make sure you request his special duck omelette...delish!!!!!

Service : Uncle Joseph is so very helpful and so fatherly...he goes out of his way to make sure your stay is comfortable and your needs are all taken care of. I felt very at home and very safe eventhough i was travelling alone. Will definitely come back again if i go back there.
