This was our first visit to India and we were very happy that we had chosen the Bungalow Heritage Homestay as our first accomodation on our trip. Hosts Neema and Prasad not only organised everything (airport pick-up etc.) to perfection and gave us many practical tips but are also some of the most amicable and helpful people we have met on our journeys.
They only rent out two rooms, so personal care is assured. A wonderful authentic breakfast was included in the room rate and dinner can be prepared on prior request for an extra charge (Neema is a great and passionate cook!).
The house, built by Neemas ancestors, is beatifully preserved with all the original furniture and full of old world charm. Unlike most of the other homestays it is not located in Fort Cochin itself but on Vypeen Island which gives it the benefit of being away from the tourist crowds while at the same time only being away a 5 minute ferry ride from the major attractions.
All in all a wonderful experience and we would definitely go back or recommend it to friends.
