Joseph and his wife were very friendly, helpfull with logistics and prepared tasty home-made cooked breakfast. It was very pleasant to chat to them and also to meet other guests at the shared breakfast table. Also...

Fantastic! We only stayed one night and wish we had planned for more. Wonderful family, friendly and full of pride and advice on the area. You are staying in someone's house but you have loads of privacy as the rooms are on the second floor. The room is basic, very clean, with aircon and private bathroom. Breakfast is served, with...

It was such a pleasure to talk with them, to taste their delicious local dishes, to listen about interesting facts and trivia, to get some cooking tips. I felt welcomed as I feel with my family....

I stayed only one night in preparation for a tour that started the next day. I was impressed from the start when Joseph came out to find my taxi driver to guide him in the right direction.

We arrived here for our first stay in South India and couldn't have received a warmer welcome. Elizabeth and Joseph provided a wonderful breakfast every day, gave advice on travel and did booking arrangements, chatted happily about Kochi and things to see, shared our woes about finding an ATM that worked, and the accommodation couldn't not have been better.

We were very warmly welcomed by Joseph and Elizabeth in their home stay. Our room was clean and convenient. The best, however, were the hosts: Every time we crossed them, they made us feel very welcome. They were always willing to help and to make your stay as pleasurable as possible.
