Our stay at the Bungalow heritage was what we expected and more. The house, the history, the food and the island, all make a stay here a wonderful experience. Neemas cooking was some of the best food we had throughout our holiday, and we were surprised each morming with new dishes and tastes- the egg curry being one of the best curries Ive in my life!!! The house is fascinating, full of items of interest and history. The location of the house on Vypeen Island just adds to the experience, being away from the touristy Fort Cochin and a short ferry ride away.
However, despite all the above positives it is Neema and her family that make this a true homestay. Warm, friendly, good sense of humour- Neema and her husband are very welcoming yet relaxed, and you genuinely feel at home. It is this and their genuine pleasure at meeting people from around the world that make a stay here what it is- an exceptional experience.
We would certainly recommend to others, and visit again when in Kerela.
