“BRILLIANT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Welcoming, relaxed and friendly. Jasmin beautiful smile and amazing home cooking. (Went out of her way to provide non-spicy food for this spice-averse traveler.) Everywhere very clean, room good, (with ac), bed big and very comfortable, bathroom and shower good. Stanley incredibly helpful - where to go, arranging Backwaters trip, currency exchange, practical advice.

We stayed with Jasim and Stanley over Christmas 2012 and it couldn't have been better. They were both incredibly welcoming and the food was awesome. We also organised our backwater and trip to Munnar through Stanley. Our driver (Augustus) for Munnar was great! When my girlfriend (in the early stages of pregnancy) felt unwell they couldn't have been more kind, thanks to them both. John and Liz

Fort Kochi is my favorite holiday attraction and the stay in Jasmin Villa is a refreshing experience. It is like home away from my own home. Stanley Wilson was a great tour organizer and his hospitality was very commendable. His home is situated in a lovely location and my stay was very pleasant. The madam at home was so friendly and her culinary expertise was beyond any telling. It was very painful experience leaving Fort Kochi and especially 'Jasmin Villa'. I am grateful to Stanley and his wife Jasmin for a wonderful holiday. I wish them all the best. For a great holiday jet connected with Stanley Wilson and get yourself pampered with house boat experience and home-stay bonanza.

Stanley Wilson is the person to know in Fort Kochi. He arranged our wonderful trip to Munnar and the Backwaters and we felt we could trust his advice and suggestions completely. Jasmin Villa was extremely comfortable. And of course (see all the other rave reviews!) Jasmin herself is an excellent cook. It would be too bad if you went to Fort Kochi and missed out on Stanley Wilson's tours -- we very much liked his eco-friendly attitude about the backwaters and his sincere desire to make our trip unforgettable.

We were in Jasmin villa for the second time, because last time was so great.

Jasmin is an amazing hostess and a wonderful cook.

She remebered us from the last visit which gave us a feeling of warm welcome.
The villa has 5 rooms, each with a shower and air conditioning. It is spotlessly clean.

The villa is located in Fort Cochin, 5 minutes from the bustling center.

Jasmin will never leave you until you ate plenty of her wonderful food and the price is very attractive for the whole package.

Room Tip: There is one room with a balcony - if it's available ask for it!
