It is hard to improve on the superlative comments already reported about Neema and her family and the incredible Homestay experience they provide. It is simply the best place any traveller could hope to find.
Not only is their beautiful, spotless 'bungalow' perfectly situated to take in all the wonderful attractions on Fort Cochin and Ernaculam, but the warmth and welcoming manner in which they embrace their guests is not to be matched anywhere. From cooking the finest Indian meals to organizing a detailed tour plan (including drivers, accommodations, train tickets, etc.), everything is done happily and with the utmost efficiency.
Aside from the comfortable, spacious room we had, Neema and her husband, Prasad were always ready to give excellent suggestions, wise advice and a wealth of knowledge, which enhanced the enjoyment of our trip immensely. Above all, however, it was the interactions with our cultured, hospitable hosts (their lovely 12-yr. old daughter, Olivia, and Neema's parents, as well) that won our hearts and had us extend our stay from 3 to 6 nights.
I cannot encourage others enough to avail themselves of this little oasis in Kerala. It is cheap at double the price!
